Just a reminder to all of you who are joining in (and a not so subtle reminder to the rest of you ;o) ) the How Far Will You Go QAL kicks off this coming Friday (27th July) with our first tutorial! I will be doing a pre-QAL post with a few tips on getting accurate 1/4" seams and some other basics sometime this week (not an official part of the QAL, but hopefully helpful anyway.)
I don't think I've mentioned our button yet either! If you'd like to grab one for your blog, the code can be found in my right sidebar at the top :o)
If you've only just decided to join and don't have fabric yet, don't stress! It's going to run until the beginning of next year, so you have plenty of time to catch up if you start late. I am the queen of starting QALs and then running out of steam, so we've deliberately planned it so that there are a few catch up weeks at the end. Also, I think this would be a fantastic quilt to make from scraps - so if you're scrap bin is overflowing, perhaps this would be a good project to tame them? Don't forget, there is a category for mini quilts/pillows and one for throw sized quilts - so you can join us for some of the blocks and still be in the running for a prize!
All the information for the QAL (including fabric requirements and prize info) can be found here.
The Flickr group can be found here. We're absolutely thrilled to have people on board to quilt along with us. It's kind of exciting but nerve wracking at the same time...
