My January OMG (One Monthly Goal) is to finish putting together my Jen Kingwell quilt top. I thought I should share the background on that so you can celebrate with me when I finish.
Last February, almost a year ago now, my quilty friend Denise suggested we do a Jen Kingwell sew-along, and she chose the "Long Time Gone" pattern. It isn't the style quilt I usually make, but I was onboard.
It has a lot of little tiny pieces. Like 1" x 1.5" strips for the Courthouse Steps blocks .....
Every block has lots and lots of pieces!
Another change I made was to replace the 60-degree triangle blocks called for .....
..... with itty bitty Square-in-a-Square blocks and teeny weeny Economy blocks. I must confess that it was only because no matter how hard I tried I could not make a 60-degree triangle block.
I made some ridiculously small Pineapple Log Cabin blocks, too!
Putting those together accurately was fun. It took a lot of pinning!
The construction of the top was easier than I thought it might be. Blocks were put together into six sections. Here they are all ready and waiting to be put together into a top. Look at those tiny Monkey Wrench blocks!
It's pretty close to being finished. Now it needs borders. I may just make that One Monthly Goal!
