Long Time Gone

We've had SO many requests to bring back Long Time Gone that we had to respond. This is a fabulous PIECED quilt from Jen--no applique required. It also works great with several of Marti Michell's rulers and templates so if you prefer working with templates over traditional rotary cutting, we'll have those available for purchase.

This quilt is approximately 66" x 67". You'll need the book to participate. Order it here if you don't already have it.

Then sign up for our monthly shipments of fabric to make the quilt. The first kits will ship in late October. This is a 12 month program.

You'll make a section of the quilt each month. We're offering this quilt in several colorways.

Of course, one option will be similar to Jen's original quilt as shown with lots of happy, funky fabrics in cheery colors. We'll build that colorway around Jen's upcoming Looking Forward  fabric line seen here and feature a light grey as the sashing as shown:

 Then, we're offering two other versions as well. We're totally crushing on the upcoming Alison Glass and Libs Elliott lines so we're offering a version using these lines as the palette with a grey as the sashing: 

We're still waiting on the Libs Elliott fabric to arrive, but here's a block showing how this colorway will look using some Alison Glass fabric we have on hand:

We'll be using a variety of low volume, light backgrounds from Alison & Libs similar to these:

And we'll sash the Alison/Libs version with a dark grey--this is our pick--we're confirming availability now.

Monthly kits are just $18.95 each plus shipping. Don't forget we now offer consolidated shipping of your blocks of the month so you can have everything shipped in one package at the end of each month! Just email or call to have your BOMS shipped together.

And we're also offering a Laundry Basket version. We know you have loved Edyta's recent lines and her upcoming Spots and Dots is the perfect bridge between Little Sweetheart and Something Blue so our third option will combine those groups and feature a dark tan from Edyta as the sashing.

Here's one of the blocks using the Laundry Basket colorway.

So, pick your favorite & sign up today to receive 12 monthly kits. The first kits will ship in late October 2018. Each monthly kit is just $18.95. 

The pattern includes rotary cutting instructions. A lot of folks find using the Marti Michell rulers & templates make this all easier. If you're interested in adding any of those, the quilt uses Sets A, B, D, N and the Pineapple Ruler. You can add any of them to your order here. 

All of our Special Programs or Monthly Programs require a commitment from you for the length of the program. Signing up for a Block of the Month is the same as putting a "quilt" on lay-away". You are making a commitment to purchase the entire set of patterns or kits. You have the choice of prepaying for the entire BOM or paying on a monthly basis. There are NO exceptions to this rule, so please don't ask if you can discontinue a program once you've joined in.
