repeat - introducing a new QAL

I am very excited to announce a brand new QAL which officially kicks off on June 1, 2016.  I'm calling this quilt repeat in honor of the way I would just love to spend every day!

(More glamour photos coming soon ... if it would only stop raining.)

This wall hanging measures 30'' square.  I had a lot of fun putting this together and I know you will too.

The letters and the star are paper pieced but don't let that scare you away!   I'll have detailed tutorials to take you through the process.  There are also lots and lots of paper piecing tutorials all over blog land and youtube which can help.

But if you aren't ready (or interested) to tackle paper piecing but still want to play along, I'll give you traditional cutting instructions for the word quilt and you can make a mini!

There will be opportunity to win prizes - official sponsor announcement on the June 1 post.   Prizes will be awarded randomly to those who participate in the QAL linky party and in the Facebook QAL page.

There will be plenty of time to get this one done - blocks will be available through June and the linky will be open until mid-August!


Help me spread the word about the QAL and get an extra entry.  Post the QAL button on your blog and reference the QAL in a blog post sometime before June 30 (more on this soon).   I so much appreciate the help - QALs are fun with lots of people!

Have a wonderful day! Patty


  1. I would like to sponsor your QAL with 3 PDF quilt patterns!

  2. Love this! I can't wait. This definitely calls for some of my "saved" stash fabrics!

  3. I am sure your daughter will love her quilt. My nice took her one of a kind quilt with her to school only to find the dorm room to be too warm to use it. :-)
    Happy Creating.

  4. I'm really looking forward to this. I don't mind a little foundation piecing once in awhile. It will be worth the effort to make such a 'poignant' quilt!


Thanks for visiting Elm Street Quilts. Looking forward to hearing from you!
