In May, 2018, Charlotte-the-Tall and I had a travel adventure: we drove my new-to-me car from Portland, Oregon to Orange County, Calif by way of Spokane, Washington (to visit the Quilting Auntie) visiting quilt shops all along the way.
While at the Stitchin Post, I purchased this fat quarter bundle.
Gleaned by Carolyn Friedlander (produced by Robert Kaufman).
Normally I do not purchase fat quarter bundles because usually there aren't enough fabrics in the bundle to complete an entire quilt project.
I made an exception with this bundle because the fabrics were so appealing and because it is a BIG bundle. I thought I stood a good chance.
Now, nearly three years later I have the perfect quilt...
Long Time Gone (LTG) by Jen Kingwell.
I've never tackled a project this challenging.
|Example plucked from the internet.|
My fabric choices are not as intense.
I am still auditioning....LTG requires many different fabrics.

So, while I'm working on the June and July birthday quilts, I'll also be working on Long Time Gone.
Call me crazy, but I am so excited.
I do believe I have my quilting mojo back! And, this is one quilt I will keep for myself.
