Today I want to officially kick off our Precision Piecing Quilt Along. I want to recognize our sponsors:
The Fat Quarter Shop has generously donated a $50 gift certificate, which will be randomly awarded to one lucky participant. To clarify, this is open to WW participants.
The Quilt Show has generously donated a TQS membership, which will be randomly awarded to only lucky participant. To clarify, this is open to WW participants.
Martingale has donated 3 new books.
As QuiltShopGal will be shipping these prizes to the lucky winners (1 book each), postage has been raised by those that kindly use my Affiliate links when making a purchase at Craftsy, AccuQuilt, CreativeBug, ThermoWeb or Amazon. As such, a maximum of one international participant will win a book, with all US/Canada participants eligible to win a book.
Throughout this event, I’ll be showcasing tips, tutorials, teachers, books, etc., to help you improve your Precision Piecing skills. Here are a few tips:
Riley Blake has a free downloadable PDF with really good basic tips for precision piecing.
This QAL allows you to work on one, or all mini blocks, designed by Hope (Hope’s Quilt Designs) which you can download from Craftsy for free. Just stitch out a block and share via the linky tool, before March
15th 19th, 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.
The deadline to enter has been extended thru March 19th, to link up with International Quilt Weekend celebrations.
Here is our Linky Party for the Precision Piecing QAL.
