Week 18 | Long Time Gone Sew-along | Reveal

Long Time Gone Sewalong - Learn how to sew and assemble Jen Kingwell's Long Time Gone with this sewalong from Angie (GnomeAngel), Nicole (Snips Snippets) and Marti Michell. See more at

It’s time to reveal your finished Long Time Gone quilt top (or quilt if you’ve been super productive!). All you need to do this week is post a photo of your finished quilt top. You’ve got till 11:59pm 28 July to post your final photo of the full quilt assembled into a quilt top (it doesn’t have to be quilted). Winners will be announced on Wednesday 2 August.

After a fortnight of being ill the bug seems to be lifting (I just need to kick this ear infection and I’ll be right as rain!) and moving to Canada where it’s now calling Nicole’s body home. Neither of us have a finished quilt to reveal (I know, we’re shocking!) but this sew-along was really never about our quilts, but about YOURS! So get out there, get snapping and give us the best photo you can of your finished quilt top. We’re both hoping to reveal our quilts by the end of this task period, wish us luck!

There’s no tutorials this week as it’s all about the finished quilt top. We’ll be on Instagram this week to answer questions, etc. as people have them. (Remember to give us some time to respond as we both have little kids, family commitments and at least one of us may now be undead (that’s Nicole this week!).)

  1. Angie, The LTG sew-a-long, my first, was a lot of fun! So appreciate the thoughtfullly written and easy to follow tutorials. Many of the blocks were quite challenging for me. Thanks to all three of you for sharing your talent and expertise. Without the sew-a-long it’s likely this beautiful quilt wouldn’t be complete. Many thanks!!

  2. Hi Angie, I’ve been trying to join the Long Time Gone Facebook page but don’t seem to be accepted yet. I was unaware there was a page, only instagram. Thanks Lyn

  3. Angie, this has been such an exciting sewalong. I got so much more accomplished than I ever thought I could. Thank you to you and Nicole and Marti. (quilting_carole)
