The Hand Pieced QAL was so much fun last year that Patty over at Elm Street Quilts and I are back to do it all over again this March! We have been planning and stitching and will be making an announcement soon, with all the details. But I can tell you now that we have lots of fabulous sponsors lined up for you!
I’m absolutely loving hand piecing with this lovely fat quarter bundle from Art Gallery Fabrics. It’s a curated bundle in the colorway Glacier (affiliate). I love the feel of the fabric, it’s been a joy to work with.
If you’ve never hand sewed before or just want to brush up on your hand piecing skills, we’ve got lots of resources for you from last year’s QAL! You may want to stitch up a few practice blocks between now and March.
Here is a playlist of all the hand piecing tutorials, and the block patterns can be found under the Hand Pieced QAL menu.
I created a number of hand piecing tutorials last year which will take you from showing you what supplies you will need, to how to do a running stitch, and sew through seam allowances, to piecing a four patch, half square triangle, flying geese, and quarter square triangle units. Please check them out!
That’s it for now, stay tuned for more details!
