Fall Into a Qal Introduction

Fall Into a Qal Introduction

Welcome to the introduction to our new Quilt Along called Fall Into a Qal starting 15 May 2018. The theme as you have guessed from the designed is Fall. You should be very easily be able to finish this quilt by fall.

There will be 12 blocks from 10 designers, plus 7 hosts. The hosts will be making all the blocks, showing different skills sets.

I have decided to do all my blocks as quilt as you go again, like last year. But instead of posting the information the same day as the block, I will do a follow up post the week after a block release with how I quilted each block.

All the blocks are designed by our Quilt Group called

Fall Into a Qal Introduction

And let us not forget about the prizes. We will have prices for each block that you complete, and a grand prize at the end, for each quilt top that you complete.

“To keep the contest portion of the quilt-along fair and fun for everyone, only quilts that use all of the designers’ blocks will be eligible for prizes. Likewise, our bi-weekly giveaways will only be open to those that make the designer’s block for that fortnight.”

Fall Into a Qal Introduction

You will need about 2 yards of back ground fabric, this does not include yardage for sashing or backing for the quilt.

And each block will be 12 inches squared.

Keep your eyes peeled for the first block to be released on 15 May 2018.

Please also visit all the the other hosts and designers, to see what they have to say about the quilt along coming up.

Quilt Qwazy Queens Day Two

Quilt Qwazy Queens Day Two

Welcome to Quilt Qwazy Queens Blog Hop Day 2, hosted by Marian at Seams to Be Sew. You’ll find the list of other participants at the end of my post who are also offering daily giveaways. Thank you, Marian, for hosting another brilliant hop.

Our theme this year is UFO’s (Unfinished Objects), you know! Those quilt tops you finished and not quilted yet. Or maybe you haven’t even made all the blocks yet for a complete quilt top.

After much debate with myself about how I am going to show my huge amount of UFO’s, I made the decision to show you ONLY 20 of them, and not all 87!

And to make it easier, I left them all in 1 photo and not 20.

In this photo I have the following UFO’s; Fantastic Beasts 1 & 2, I want to believe, Pink Kitty, Pinstripe Crossing, Star Trek quilt, My Favourite Things, Project of Doom, Signature top, Pinwheel table runner, T Shirt quilt, Ipad Quilt, Place mats, Candlewicking quilt, Fall panel, Camping quilt, Little pink house, Stacked Windows, and Paper Piecing Vintage.

These are the ones, that I had every intention of finishing off this year… what a laugh. This year, is turning out to be just as busy as last year.  But I will persevere.

Please go and visit the other ladies who is posting today, to see what they have been busy with.
