My next QAL (quilt along) will be for the Water Drop quilt pattern! Details are below.
Super Duper Important Note: The email sign up is a double opt in process. That means after you click subscribe, you will receive an email that asks you to confirm your email subscription. You must confirm your subscription in order to receive the weekly QAL emails. Often, these confirmation emails end up in your SPAM FOLDER. Please check your spam folder. We would both be sad if I lived in your spam folder forever.
Water Drop QAL
The pattern is confident beginner friendly. There are two sizes (lap and baby) and two options to construct the quilt (yardage or scrappy). And the best kept secret is that for the yardage option, you construct the HSTs using a 32 at a time method! I guess it's no longer a secret ;)
QAL dates: Aug. 13 - Sept. 24 (6 weeks long)
- Week 1: Gather fabric
- Week 2: Work on 32 at a time HSTs or making scrappy HSTs
- Week 3: Cut remaining fabric and layout quilt
- Week 4: Assemble top half of quilt
- Week 5: Assemble bottom half of quilt
- Week 6: Finish up quilt top

I am thrilled to announce that several generous sponsors are offering fabulous prizes for the QAL! You must be signed up for the QAL email to receive the prompt each week. Most prompts will require you to post an image/information on Instagram and you must have a public profile so that I can see the image to be eligible for prizes.
