Still thinking about joining us?

So, have you started your cutting for the Across the Sea QAL? I hope its going well! I'm really excited to see how your blocks start to shape up next week when we start piecing.

There are some really great fabric choices appearing in the Flickr group where we have 78 members - wow! I am totally thrilled at how many people have signed up to join us in making this lovely quilt. If you are still wondering whether or not to join us - please do!

Want to see some of the fabric choices? Here are a few of my faves:

QAL fabric mosaic

There's such a variety of colours and themes showing up and I LOVE how there are quite a few people making Christmas quilts with this pattern - I think they will be amazing. So, if you've joined up, don't forget to post your fabric choices, and if you're still thinking about it, come join the fun!

Don't forget that if you take part, and link up a picture of your finished quilt by the end of the day, Monday 3rd October, you're in with a chance to win one of the 2 prizes of the $20 gift certificates to our lovely QAL sponsors Sew Fresh Fabrics - they have fabulous fabrics over there, so do check them out! Remember they have also kindly offered to discount the shipping costs for fabric bought for the QAL with free domestic/ half off International Shipping on orders totaling $35.00 or more. Just enter the code FAIRYLANE in Notes to Seller upon checkout and they will refund the shipping via paypal upon shipment.

The original post with all the fabric requirements is here and the QAL schedule is here.

So, happy cutting and I'll be looking forward to seeing your blocks start to appear next week!

I'm joining in to make a quilt for m pregnants sisters baby. I love the simplicity of the design. I was going to make a plus quilt and then youre quiltalong came along. My other sister is also pregnant and i made her baby a quilt with the kaleidoscope quilt along from don't call me betsy. So much more fun making things in a virtual group. My basis will be gray. I'm thinking lots if pink prints for the crosses. I will start picking from my stash and show you in the flickr pool. Eva-marie
