Backyard Chicks QAL - Week 6 (FINISH)

It's the last week of the Backyard Chicks QAL! 

Wow, didn't the last five weeks just fly by?! I blinked and this QAL is almost over already. I've loved seeing all the finished quilt tops this week - so many fabulous finishes and such a lovely array of fabric choices.

The winner of the week 5 prize is @offthepincushion! Congratulations - please email me at sedef@downgrapevinelane.com (or DM me on Instagram) to arrange delivery of your prize.

In this last week of the quilt along we will be finishing our quilts, by quilting and binding them. So there's quite a lot to do! I know some of you prefer to send your quilts to a long armer for the quilting process (as I do from time to time) so please do share your quilts on Instagram once you get them back - I would love to see everyone's finished quilts! 

Week 6

  • Finish your quilt top if you haven't already done so.
  • Piece your backing, following the pattern instructions, and make a quilt sandwich
  • Quilt as desired - I straight quilted mine for a superfast finish. Trim off excess fabric.
  • Bind your quilt, following your preferred binding method. Remember that the cutting instructions are for a binding that is 2 1/4" wide - if you prefer to have a wider binding cut your strips accordingly. 
  • Share your finished quilts on Instagram tagging them with #backyardchicksQAL, and you may win the grand prize!!

Grand Prize:

On Sunday evening I will pick a winner from all the finished quilts on the Instagram hashtag #backyardchicksQAL. The winner will receive:
  • Bundle of 5 fat quarters of quilting fabric (from my own fabric collections)
  • A Zakka notion set carefully curated by me
  • 5 patterns of your choice from my pattern collection
Thank you for joining me in this fun quilt along, and I hope you enjoyed it as much as I did! Please do come and join me again at my next QAL, which I will be announcing soon!
