We are also working on having some super amazing giveaways for QAL participants! Rather than doing a weekly progress link up, we'll be doing a link up after we finish each row as well as at the end. That's four giveaways for you to win HBD patterns, fabric, and whatever else we might be able to get our paws on.
As always (and unlike a lot of other QALs), it is F-R-E-E to participate in this quilt along. Once the QAL is over, you'll have to pay to get the pattern, so even if you're unsure about keeping up with the QAL, collect the free patterns each week and save them! We don't judge. :)
As a reminder, here's the fabric and supply requirements:
Background: 2 yards
Various prints for piecing: 1 1/4-1 1/2 yards total (about 1/3 yard of this is for your border)
Add extra if you like extra wiggle room for your paper piecing!
Binding: 1/3 yard
Backing and batting: 1 1/4 yard
Fusible web pieces
