Book Club Parade of Quilts

Needles down!  Our second Hand Pieced QAL Book club has ended and we are just thrilled with all the finished quilt tops and quilted quilts!

Today, I'm thrilled to be sharing some of the finished quilt tops and quilts.  Please also visit Kristin's blog to see the other half of the parade.

Although the QAL has ended, you can still purchase the pattern for Book Club!   Pattern includes templates for 9 blocks each of which finish at 9".   Instructions for two setting are provided - a wall hanging which finishes 37'' x 37'' or a throw sized quilt which finishes at 52'' x 52''.

And now for the parade!

Our first group of 4 quilts chose to make a wall hanging size.  I love seeing the different fabric and color choices as well as the addition of cornerstones!

Top Row: Nancy & Deb; Bottom Row: Joan and Janis

Our next 3 finishes choose to make a throw sized quilt.  I just love the fabric combinations in each of these!

Susan, Catherine, and Tiffany
Several quilters went the extra mile and added additional blocks to make larger quilts by making two of each block or mixing in up-sized blocks from our 2019 hand pieced QAL.

We've got 16 block versions....

Becky and Lindsey
And those that used 18 to 20 blocks!

Pat, Robin V.  and Robin

Finally, 2 quilters not only finished their quilt tops but also finished their quilting!

Diann and Harriet
Thank you to everyone who participated.  We loved that you sewed along with us!

Finally, thank you to our wonderful sponsors who provided some extra incentive to keep stitching!  Congratulations to Cynthia, Hilary, Lindsey, and Joan - our lucky grand prize winners!

Have a wonderful day! Patty
