Design Wall Monday 06-05-17

Triangles (on top),

triangles,

triangles,

and more triangles.

All the triangles have been made for the Long Time Gone quilt top.  I do have to confess that I changed the direction of the Flying Geese in the last block.  My goal was a green center surrounded by the yellow, orange and red geese and I also liked the look of the green pinwheel in the middle.  Once this block was completed, I sewed together the parts for Section 6.

The sections go together so quick and easy since the sashing had been added to blocks where possible and all the checkerboard blocks were completed.

All that is left to do is 12 Pineapple units for two blocks.  The Pineapple blocks are the last one in Jen Kingwell’s instructions and I have come to the conclusion that she did that deliberately to use up all the little bits & pieces left over from all the other blocks.  I am still playing around with the color placement and plan to start these on Wednesday.

Check out all the quilty inspiration at Judy’s Design Wall Monday.

    Terrific project! Thanks for linking to Design Wall Monday. Did you visit #14 on the list (she is also making Long Time Gone)

    I like what you did with the Flying Geese blocks. I’m still in the early stages of my Long Time Gone quilt. Thanks for the inspiration.

      One of my favorite things about making this quilt was deciding where the different fabric colors would be placed in each block. It really gives a quilter the opportunity to make the quilt their own. I know that you will have as much fun (and frustration) building your LTG as I did. Thanks for stopping by.

  3. I like your color range that you are using.

      Thank you. Originally I was going to use my Oriental fabric, but at the last minute I changed my mind and decided to use autumn colors. I am very happy with the way it is looking.
