Introducing Christine's Kitchen!
This is a paper piecing wall hanging or mini quilt with a few applique accents. This is a great project for paper piecers -- old and new! I'm planning to make a scrappy version with my Island Batik fabric stash (and maybe do some giveaways too!) My mom made her sample in scrappy 1930s fabrics and Amanda's WIP version has a teal background and white/grey dishes -- check it out on Instagram!
And like our other Honey, Bunny, and Doll QALs, it is totally free to participate! There is zero cost to participate, we don't require you to buy a kit from us, and you don't have to buy an outside book or pattern. Once the QAL is over, we'll sell the entire pattern, but patient QAL participants will get an entire pattern for free!
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
Here's our tentative schedule:
March 20th: Blocks 1 and 2; sashing
March 27th: Blocks 3 and 4; sashing
April 3rd: Block 5; sashing
April 10th: Blocks 6 and 7; sashing
April 17th: Blocks 8 and 9; sashing
April 24th: Blocks 10 and 11; sashing

May 8th: Applique blocks

We will be adding the sashings to our blocks as we go along and we will also have a whole week dedicated to applique. My plan is to make my blocks for the QAL the week prior (ie, I will be only slightly ahead of the rest of you) so I can have good fresh comments and tips for you each week about the blocks you'll be making.
