Fireburst and Plus Playtime QAL Updates
We are participating in two QALs in spite of me, and I’m still alive to speak about it. Sue was about to kill me with the exciting news.
She said if I was going to pull fabrics like this that didn’t match (and they really don’t) she can’t have her name on it. I would have to change the blog to Home Sewn By
Us Me. Sew, we selected this fabric instead which is much more to both of our liking. Those circles above are still calling to me – we’ll find something for them soon!
Fireburst Winning Hand
Here the Fireburst fabrics are all cut and ready for the next step which is piecing. June 1st is the released date for those Instructions and tips.
Plus Playtime QAL
Our second QAL is called Plus Playtime hosted by Sandra at mmm! Quilts. Sandra’s finished quilt is featured on Modern By the Yard ezine #7, and its colorful fabrics drew us in right away. Playtime QAL started with a listing of fabric requirements on May 1st. I knew right away that we had to use this Hashtag fabric:
Here are all the blocks cut and labeled – flashback from the Postcard quilt only not quite as many labels! The next instruction and tips for sewing row 1 were released on May 22nd and will call for the design wall to be used for sure. We do not want to start off on the wrong foot in the very first row! Here is our potential layout for row 1.
We are all set for both QALs. Stay tuned for our next update. ~smile~
