Sew Intertwined QAL


Sew Intertwined Quilt

I am so excited to announce that I will be co-hosting my first every QAL with none other than Jen from Sew Happy Geek! We have teamed up to create this newly designed quilt just for you!

The quilt is fairly straightforward, however, the woven blocks can present a bit of a challenge. This quilt will definitely stretch your skill set. We will be presenting you 2 different methods for assembling the woven blocks, regular piecing and paper piecing, try out both methods and decide which one works best for you. The finished quilt without borders is 60×60, with borders is 65×65.

How to Join: All you have to do is head over to Flickr and join the Sew Intertwined QAL Group. We are going to take our time with this QAL, you will have until September 6th to get your quilt top into the Flickr group to be eligible for prizes.

    This looks fabulous! But I agree with Mishka — I’m impatient — I want the woven blocks tutorial now!

    The discounts at various shops is incredible: I’m going to have to spend a little while this afternoon looking at fabrics! This is such a great idea. 🙂

    • Alisa says:

      Oh, and a silly question, but I can’t seem to find the information: how large is the finished quilt going to be?

      • Melissa says:

        LOL! Ok, the finished size is 60×60 with no borders and 65×65 with borders. It was on the flickr group but I forgot to put it in this post! Sorry about that!!!
