Book Club: Hand Pieced QAL: Grand Prize Reveal!
Book Club: Hand Pieced Quilt Along

It’s been much fun watching all of you sew your beautiful blocks! And I cannot wait to see the gorgeous quilt tops and finished quilts that you are going to put together!

For those of you that do take those blocks, sew them into a top, and link them up in the Grand Prize Link Up (open from June 11- July 15), we have FOUR amazing Grand Prizes to give away from our generous sponsors.

Prize #1: Pressing Paradise

A beautiful Wool Ironing Mat from Precision Quilting Tools and an amazing Olisio Auto Lift Pro Zone Iron TG 1600

Take your pressing to the next level with this awesome combo! The ergonomic Oliso iTouch technology allows you to simply touch the handle of this iron and it lowers, ready to rid your heaviest wrinkles. It features an extra-long cord so that you can use it anywhere in your sewing room and a 30-minute auto shut-off, which is perfect for quilters. The 17” x 17” felted wool pressing mat retains heat, so when you iron your fabric it’s like ironing from both sides at the same time!

Prize #2: Perfect Piecing Package

Thread from Aurifil, a rotary cutter and cutting mat set from OLFA, snips zipper pouch from Famore and a queen size batting from Quilter’s Dream 

You’ll always have the perfect tool for the job with this package of goodies! It includes an Olfa cutting set:  45mm rotary cutter, 6” x 12” frosted ruler, and 12” x 18” navy cutting mat, as well as a Famore zipper pouch, which is loaded with every type of snip you’ll ever need! You will always find the perfect blending thread in the Aurifil Necessities 50wt large spool thread set, and you can finish your quilt with the super-soft, high quality 100% cotton Quilters Dream batting.

Prize #3 Quilt Designer’s Dream

A $50 gift certificate to Fat Quarter Shop and your very own copy of the best quilt design software EQ8 from the Electric Quilt Company

EQ8 is the standard in quilt design software. The intuitive, user-friendly interface will have you designing your own quilts in just a few minutes. You can import fabric to preview what a quilt will look like before even buying the fabric! And once you’ve made your choices, you’ve got a $50 gift card from the Fat Quarter Shop to get started!

Prize #4 Lighten Up

Stella Two – a premium LED task light from Stella Lighting

The Stella Two LED task lamp is a beautiful addition to your sewing room! The weighted base keeps the lamp steady while the flex arm allows the light to be rotated in nearly every direction.  The raised touchpad allows you to dim the light to ten different brightness settings, so you never have to struggle with having enough light again!

Stella Lighting is offering a 20% discount on one Stella item with promo code HPQAL in their shop.
