Long Time Gone Sew-Along
Long Time Gone by Jen Kingwell
Sew Along deadline extended!
Long Time Gone is a stunning scrappy quilt that finishes at 66.5” x 67.5”. Jen Kingwell has generously given approval for the Long Time Gone Sew-Along. The Sew-Along has been organized by 3 talented quilters, Angie Wilson of Gnome Angel, Nicole Calver of Snips Snippets, and Marti Michell. It's going to be fun! You can get complete details on the Sew Along hosts, schedule, prize sponsors, etc. here. We have learned that the deadline to submit an image of your Block#1 for prizes has been extended until March 28th!!! This means you have plenty of time to catch up and join in on the fun and maybe even win some quilty prizes! Here at Quilting by the Bay, we are still stocking our fat quarter bundles of brights and lights to get you started, along with tools you will find helpful to follow along with our fearless Sew-along leaders. Each of the hosts is creating tutorials to help you every block of the way. Measurements for blocks are all given in inches and you don't need special templates to make the blocks. A couple of us at QBTB are sewing along, so do visit our Long Time Gone ‘department’ in store or online to find the pattern, fun fat quarter bundles and tools so you can get going creating your own version of Jen Kingwell’s beautiful design!
