A group of members of our Mount Battie Modern Quilt Guild are making Jen Kingwell”s Long Time Gone pattern. These are a few of the blocks I’ve done so far. I’ve got one more to photograph–maybe for the next post. I am going to introduce a few shades of coral in some of the blocks–haven’t decided yet what other colors.
The three small quilts pictures at the top of the post are mini quilts I made for a few MQG swaps. These were fun to participate in. In the latest (white and blue quilt in middle picture) my swap partner and I were able to exchange hints and pictures suggesting what the quilt would look like on Instagram. I hope to participate in more.
I’m planning on getting two more blocks for the Long Time Gone quilt done this week. We are doing 2-3 blocks a month, and I’d love to get a little ahead–it seems that some months things come up and the making the blocks somehow doesn’t get done.
We had about 4 more inches of snow last night in our part of Maine. The rest of the week will be in the 40’s or higher, so there goes the snow. I had hoped to get out on my snow shoes, but so far this winter, I haven’t been able to. Life keeps interfering!
