I have been very much looking forward to the 'official' first post of the Bargello QAL!

Both Queen B and Baby B use 2 1/2 inch strips so you might find just what you need already in your stash.

Here is the schedule:

  • Kickoff and Sponsor Introduction  (today!)
  • Fabric Requirements   (March 7)
  • Bargello Basics   (March 14)
  • Bargello assembly   (March 21)
  • Quilting the bargello (March 28)
  • Linky party (March 28 - April 22)
  • Winners selected   (April 22)

And for the super exciting part!

We've two fantastic sponsors for the QAL.

Three (3) participants - chosen randomly - will win a fat quarter bundle.  An entry into the QAL is earned with a completed quilt top - quilted or not quilted.

Make both Bargellos and earn two entries!

Become seriously addicted and make a third?  Earn yourself another entry.  (And so on!)

For those who want to enter but don't have a blog, entries can be sent via email.   Bonus points also available for sharing via Facebook and Instagram - more on that later.

American Made Brand solids, one of my blog sponsors, has a collection of 75 beautiful colors of fabric completely manufactured in the United States - from the cotton to the finished fabric!  The fabric has deep rich color and I love the feel of the fabric (the hand.)  My large Bargello was made exclusively of American Made Brand solids from my stash.

 American Made Brand is providing two fat quarter bundles - aren't these beautiful colors?
