Long Time Gone SAL Week 1

I love so many of Jen Kingwell's designs and when I heard there would be a SAL using her sampler pattern Long Time Gone of all machine pieced blocks, I decided I needed to play along.
The details can be found here at  http://www.gnomeangel.com/week-1-long-time-gone-sew-along-bow-tie-block/ if you would like to join in the fun.

These are my blocks for this week photographed in our latest snow:

Bow Tie:


The pesky wind flipped the corner of the block on the right and the snow makes the light corners difficult to see but I am going with this photo because I am hoping this will be my last snow shot as we are getting so close to Spring!!

I used some of my all-time favorite prints (Chickopee, Loulouthi, Hope Valley,Prince Charming, Architextures, Vanilla Grunge, Mama Said Sew) for these blocks and plan to continue that trend throughout the top as I sew.

If you want to see some gorgeous blocks,look to the IG feed here:

Love your block!
I just cut the fabrics for two bow tie blocks! Love to have a machine project in between all the hand appliqué stuff!
