Long Time Gone [Week 3]

I'm really enjoying this quilt along so far, and I'm staying up to date! Working ahead even! I've done a lot of the cutting in advance and although I'm not totally finished, it is definitely making it easier to get the blocks ready in time.

This week is a lovely little block called Crosses of the UK and the pattern calls for six of them.

Aren't they cute? They were also very easy to put together!

One of the big challenges of this quilt along comes towards the end: 16 foundation-pieced 37-piece Pineapple blocks in a week. I don't think so.... so I've started making them already - 2 down, 14 to go.

These blocks are great for using up scraps!
