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  http://www.gnomeangel.com/week-1-long-time-gone-sew-along-bow-tie-block/ 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 one...it 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?

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

I am loving your prints for these blocks. This one looks wonderful! Love the orange and the red prints in this one.

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!
