Long Time Gone - Week 6 Plus a Star Block

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 if you would like to join in the fun.

This is my version of the block for this week, Plus a Star Block:
 This was a fun block to make with interlocking plus shapes and a star in the mix.
A bit of fussy cutting as well as just a lot of fun color interplay with this looks a bit of a mess but looks really good when set in with the other blocks.

I've been seeing these blocks pop up all over Instagram, but didn't realize it was a SAL. Your blocks are looking great and I'm loving all the prints. Can't wait to see it all come together. It looks like it will be a pretty big quilt, do you know the dimensions? said...

Love your blocks. So are you loving the bazillion pieces per block? I think it would be therapeutic in a way.

These are all looking good! I like how the photo for the first block is on snow ... you can track a years worth of weather!

Love your fabric choices for the LTG blocks! It’s a great quilt to work on. It takes me longer to choose the fabrics than to make the blocks!
