Backyard Chicks QAL - Week 4

It's Week 4 of the Backyard Chicks QAL! 

We are more than halfway in this quilt along already! This week we will finish making our quilt blocks. I have been enjoying seeing everyone's blocks on Instagram - so many different colour and fabric choices!

The winner of the week 3 prize is @sewsayshelley! Congratulations - please email me at (or DM me on Instagram) to arrange delivery of your prize.

Week 4

  • Make 16 blocks. This week we are making our final 16 blocks. Same as in the previous weeks, we are using four different fabrics, 4 blocks from each fabric. 
  • Finish all blocks! You should now have all 48 blocks finished (for throw size). If you fell behind hopefully you can put in some extra time this week to finish them all as next week we will be sewing our quilt top together.
  • Share your blocks on Instagram tagging them with #backyardchicksQAL, if you want to be in the running for this week's prize! You can share your photos on Facebook with the same hashtag if you wish, but I will only be selecting winners from Instagram. Reminder - I pick an account randomly from Instagram from everyone who posted their progress that week, regardless of whether you have completed the week's tasks or not! So feel free to post any and all progress you make, even if you are just joining the QAL for instance, and you will still be in the running for that week's prize. However to qualify for the grand prize at the end you will need to have finished and bound your quilt by the finish date of the QAL, which is 27 October. 

This week's prize:

On Sunday evening I will randomly pick a winner from all the entries on the Instagram hashtag #backyardchicksQAL. The winner will receive:
  • 3 fat quarters of quilting fabric (from my own fabric collections)
See you back here next week, below is a recap of all the details for the QAL!
