So, there is still time to enter to win prizes. And, those that join the Christmas Quilt Along, hosted by Natalia Bonner at Piece N Quilt are also invited to join in the Make It A Handmade Challenge. To clarify, those participating in Natalia’s Christmas QAL can take a picture of their QAL and enter it in the December Recap Linky Party, for the Make It A Handmade Challenge, even if they do not have their QAL finished by December 10th. Just share a picture of the status of your Christmas Quilt on December 10th.
Before I share a little about the Christmas QAL, with Natalia Bonner of Piece N Quilt, I want to mention that Piece N Quilt is run by Natalia Bonner and Kathleen Whiting, very talented designers, teachers and authors.
Cabin Fever will be released in June 2015, but you can pre-order a copy on Amazon.
Join the Christmas Quilt Along with Natalia Bonner of Piece N Quilt and have fun making a new Christmas quilt that you can keep to decorate your home, or give as a gift. This quilt will measure 76″x76″ when completed. Click this image of the quilt design for more info on this QAL. SewCalGal is certainly looking forward to this fun QAL.
