Fall Into a QAL

Fall Into a QAL
Join a community of quilters as we create 12 quilt blocks to complete a Fall themed quilt, May 15th through November 12, 2018.

Fall Into a QAL is brought to you by a group of quilters who met during the 2017 New Quilt Bloggers Blog Hop. We are Partners in Design: Where Friends and Fabric Meet and this is our second Mystery Quilt Along.

"Partners in Design"

This is a free mystery quilt along (QAL) where participants will not know the design of the quilt block until it is released. All blocks will have an Autumn theme and measure 12″ finished. Block patterns will be released every two weeks starting with Block #1 on May 15th. The last block will be released on October 16, 2018. The patterns will be free until the QAL is over. The QAL and its prizes are open to International participation.

Techniques used in the blocks range from pieced blocks to appliqué to paper pieced. We encourage all levels of quilters to join. Each designer will have her pattern on their blog available for free through the QAL, as well as a complete tutorial to guide you through making their  block.

To participate you can:

  • Check out the “Fall Into a QAL” post every two weeks here on Sparkle On! for the link to the designer’s block pattern and tutorial.
  • Join the “Partners in Design“ Facebook group . Here you will meet and can interact with other the quilters who are participating, post photos of your blocks, and ask any questions.
  • On Instagram, use the hashtag #fallintoaqal  
  • Join the linky party on each designer’s block release post.

When you post a picture on our FB group page, Instagram and/or the designer’s linky party, you will be automatically entered to win fabulous prizes!  Every two weeks a prize will be randomly awarded to one person who completed the designer’s block pattern. The deadline for entry expires when a new block is released. As the finale we will be offering a chance at our Grand Prize to those who complete the quilt top using all of the twelve blocks. We encourage you to post your photos on all our formats, but entry is limited to one per person per block.

We have some really super prizes from these amazing sponsors:
