Today I want to invite you to join an easy quilt-along that is all about improving/learning your precision piecing skills, while having fun. Each week, through mid-March, I will release a post about precision piecing. We’ll have a linky party where participants can make one or more blocks to enter to win prizes donated by generous sponsors.
Hope (Hope’s Quilt Designs) is from South East NSW, Australia and she is a talented quilter and designer.
She has many of her designs on Craftsy, including several FREE mini-blocks that finish at 1-1/2″. Each of her patterns come with easy to follow instructions and great visuals, but her mini-blocks have inspired me for along time, as I think they are also a perfect design to use to learn/improve your precision piecing skills.
This QAL allows you to work on one, or all of Hope’s mini blocks which you can download from Craftsy for free. Just stitch out a block and share via the linky tool, before March 15th, to enter to win prizes. Here are the mini blocks by Hope:
You can finish your mini-block how ever you wish. You may want to make several and create a mini-quilt, or mug rug. You could even turn one into a cute zipper pouch. Possibilities are endless. But this QAL is really all about learning/improving your precision piecing skills by making these sweet mini-quilts.
Bloggers and non-bloggers can join this QAL. Of course, I appreciate it when bloggers use the badge (from this post) and encourage others to join too! I also appreciate it if everyone can use the hashtag #PrecisionPiecingQAL when sharing on any social media tool. Non-bloggers can link to their photos shared via Pinterest, Flickr, etc., so long as it is viewable to others. And, you can link as often as you wish. Very flexible to enter, but do let me know if you have any questions.
Next week I’ll announce our sponsors for this event. There will also be prizes for WW participants, but some sponsors may require the prize to be awarded to US Only, or US/Canada, due to postage expenses.
