Welcome to week three of our #PrecisionPiecingQAL.  Everyone has time to make a mini-block, with a free downloadable pattern designed by Hope’s Quilt Designs (links available in kick-off post).  You just need to make at least one block, to enter by March 19th, as I’ll be announcing the winners next week.

This event is sponsored by:

The Fat Quarter Shop

The Quilt Show

Martingale


While many have made one, or more, of the free miniature quilt blocks, some have repeated the same block, to further improve their precision piecing skills, getting better results each time they make a mini-block.  And, some have turned their blocks into miniature projects:

Bea (Beaquilter) turned her blocks into a sweet pincushion.

Jan (non-blogger) shared this very creative quilt top she created using her miniature blocks.

Deadline to enter is March 19th.  I will be announcing the winners next week.

Here is our Linky Party for the Precision Piecing QAL.

Don’t forget this coming Saturday is Worldwide quilting day.  

 

And, to help celebrate, The Quilt Show is allowing everyone FREE access to all their current and past episodes plus giving away ~$10k in prizes.

I hope you will take time to make a miniature quilt block this weekend, to practice your precision piecing skills, as well as celebrate International Quilt Weekend.  This is always one of my favorite weekends of the year.

  1. I thought the deadline was the 15th. I was going crazy trying to finish some last night! I have made 2 of most of the blocks! I woll post before the 19th!

  2. I have really loved this QAL! I had lots of other projects I should have been working on, I suppose, but this was too tempting not to join in. I have loved making mini quilts for a couple of years now, but they are usually composed of blocks about 2 & a half inches to three inches. These were a challenge. I have spent many hours, working on the blocks, these past weeks and it has been worth every minute. Thanks Quilt Shop Gal, for hosting this!
