Book Club QAL - last day to link-up!

When Kristin and I announced the Book Club QAL earlier this year, life was still normal. 

Then, suddenly lock down happens and everything changes!   For some, this meant less time for 'fun' sewing.  For those who were able to participate, they commented how much joy hand piecing and the QAL brought to them during these difficult times.

The Grand Prize link-up has been open for about a month.  It closes today.  It's been exciting to see all the hand pieced finishes popping up in the link-up and email entries.

I absolutely loved  interacting with everyone via email and the Facebook group.  I'm also thrilled that we've converted a few people over to the pleasures of hand piecing!

Now today is the last day to enter into the Grand Prize draw.  Tomorrow we get to choose the lucky winners.

And there will be 4 of them because we've got 4 grand prizes - (1) Pressing Paradise (2) Perfect Piecing Package (3) Quilt Designers Dream and (4) Lighten Up your Room!  (Read more about the Grand Prizes on this post.)

You are invited to the Inlinkz link party!

  • The quilt top (blocks, sashing and borders) must be entirely hand pieced.
  • Quilt tops must use at least five unique blocks from the Book Club QAL.  You can use any layout that you chose for your quilt top.
Winners will be chosen randomly and notified via email.  Winners have 72 hours to claim their prize - if we don't hear back, we will draw another name.  Once winners have claimed their prize, this post will be updated with the names of the winners.

We hope you take a few minutes to visit others and make new friends!

  1. Thanks for another great QAL. I had hoped to have my top quilted, but alas that did not happen. Also big thanks to your sponsors.


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