Hand Pieced QAL: Grand Prizes Revealed!
Hand Pieced QAL

Can you believe that we are almost to the end of the QAL? It’s time to turn those gorgeous blocks you’ve been piecing into a quilt top, if you haven’t already! But no worries, we’ve given you lots of time to catch up on blocks and turn your project into a beautiful quilt top (and hopefully into an actual quilt!).

All you have to do is get the top done by the end of April to enter the Grand Prize giveaway.

Hand Pieced QAL

It has been such a pleasure to host this QAL with Patty. The interest and participation has been beyond our wildest dreams! It’s been so fun to see all of your different blocks–the color schemes and fabric choices so unique and beautiful. Most of all, finding out that there are so many kindred spirits out there who value the art of slow stitching has been so gratifying.

To give you an incentive to keep working on your project, we thought that it would be fun to give you a peek a the fabulous prizes–all provided by our wonderful sponsors. Here are the four (4!) grand prizes:

  1. A $50 gift certificate to the Fat Quarter Shop.

4. A hand piecing tool kit including:

To be eligible to win one of the four grand prizes, you must:

  • Share a photo of a completed quilt top (i.e. the flimsy) or a completed quilt in the grand prize link-up (opens April 4) or via email.
  • The quilt top (blocks, sashing and borders) must be entirely hand pieced.
  • Quilt tops must use at least five unique blocks from the Hand Pieced QAL.  You can use any layout that you chose for your quilt top (Instructions for two possible layouts can be found here.)
  • Blocks can be constructed using different units (ex: using two HST to make a flying geese). Blocks can also be made a different size.
