Book Club QAL Grand Prize Reveal!

The time has come to turn your pile of hand pieced blocks into a quilt top.  Get this done by the end of July 15 for a chance to win a fabulous prize in the Grand Prize link-up!  

The grand prize link-up opens on Thursday, June 11!

We've been thrilled with all of the blocks that we've seen in our link-ups, on Instagram and in the Facebook group.  The interest in the QAL has exceeded our expectations and we've had such a blast working through the QAL with everyone.

As you are working on hand piecing your quilt tops, we wanted to give you a little extra incentive with a reveal of the grand prizes!

Thanks to our generous sponsors, we've assembled some amazing grand prizes:

(1) Pressing Paradise - a beautiful Wool Ironing Mat from Precision Quilting Tools and an amazing Olisio Auto Lift Pro Zone Iron TG 1600

Take your pressing to the next level with this awesome combo! The ergonomic Oliso iTouch technology allows you to simply touch the handle of this iron and it lowers, ready to rid your heaviest wrinkles. It features an extra-long cord so that you can use it anywhere in your sewing room and a 30-minute auto shut-off--perfect for quilters. The 17” x 17” felted wool pressing mat retains heat, so when you iron your fabric it's like ironing from both sides at the same time!

(2) Perfect Piecing Package -  amazing collecton of prizes - thread from Aurifil, set of snips from Famore, rotary cutter, mat and ruler from OLFA, and a queen size batting from Quilter's Dream!
You’ll always have the perfect tool for the job with this package of goodies! It includes an Olfa cutting set:  45mm rotary cutter, 6” x 12” frosted ruler, and 12” x 18” navy cutting mat, as well as a Famore zipper pouch, which is loaded with every type of snip you’ll ever need! You will always find the perfect blending thread in the Aurifil Necessities 50wt large spool thread set, and you can finish your quilt with the super-soft, high quality 100% cotton Quilters Dream batting.

(3) Quilt Designer's Dream - a $50 gift certificate to Fat Quarter Shop and your very own copy of the best quilt design software EQ8 from the Electric Quilt Company

EQ8 is the standard in quilt design software. The intuitive, user-friendly interface will have you designing your own quilts in just a few minutes. You can import fabric to preview what a quilt will look like before even buying the fabric! And once you’ve made your choices, you’ve got a $50 gift card from the Fat Quarter Shop to get started!

(4) Lighten Up your room - a Stella Two - a premium LED task light from Stella Lighting

The Stella TWO LED task lamp is a beautiful addition to your sewing room! The weighted base keeps the lamp steady while the flex arm allows the light to be rotated in nearly every direction.  The raised touchpad allows you to dim the light to ten different brightness settings, so you never have to struggle with having enough light again!

Stella Lighting is also offering a 20% discount on one Stella item with promo code HPQAL in their shop.

There will be 4 grand prize winners!

Have a wonderful day! Patty


  1. What wonderful prizes! 'Love the blocks, wish I'd participated in this quilt along.

  2. Ooooh...what great prizes. I'm glad my blocks are pieced together. ☺ I'm going to link up my quilt top (so I don't forget to link up) but hoping to get it quilted before the final deadline.


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