Harmony - Hand Pieced QAL 2021 Reveal

I am so very excited to announce the Hand Pieced QAL for 2021 - Harmony!  My friend Kristin from Simple Handmade Everyday will join me in hosting our QAL.  We had so much fun with our last two Hand Pieced QALs and we couldn't resist doing it again.

Isn’t this quilt gorgeous?  This is the Harmony throw sized quilt using the fabric Dancing in Paris (
available March 2021).  This beautiful throw quilt (56’’ x 56’’) is made up of four large Harmony blocks.  

Don’t want to make a throw quilt?  Make a single Harmony block (28’’x 28’’) and create a fabulous wall hanging!  Kristin is using Moda Thatched in a lovely red, yellow, gray colorway.  (See more photos of her quilt!)

The Harmony Hand Pieced QAL begins in February with weekly blog posts, check-in link-ups and all the information and support you need to fall in love with hand piecing!   The Harmony Hand Pieced QAL is perfect for beginners and experienced hand piecers.


The Harmony pattern will be available for purchase on February 8, 2021 for $10. It is a digital (PDF) pattern that includes:
  • All the instructions for each unit, block construction, and final quilt top settings for wall hanging and throw quilt
  • Templates for all quilt units (and rotary cutting instructions where possible)
  • Coloring page
Color placement is everything in this quilt–so definitely have fun and use the coloring page. The Harmony block construction is fairly straight forward (no curves!), but still challenging enough to be fun!

Download a copy of the coloring page of a Harmony and start planning your fabric placement. (Print 4 copies of the block and tape together for a throw sized quilt.)

 The Harmony pattern is written both for yardage or FQs.


  • The pattern goes on sale on February 8 - mark your calendar!

  • The Harmony Hand Pieced QAL will run from February 22 through the end of June. 

There will be several opportunities to win prizes from our wonderful sponsors as you share photos of your progress in our check-in and grand prize link-ups.
