3. Prizes!!

We have three prizes for the quilt along which will be given out randomly to those that submit a quilt top or finished quilt to the QAL parade.
Quilted Ever After are longarm quilting sisters Andrea and Caitlin from the Twin Cities, MN. They didn't grow up sewing or quilting but their grandma and mom did lots of quilting and sewing. As the sisters grew older, they decided that we wanted to give these skills a try and fell in love with quilting. Andrea and Caitlin decided to start a longarm business to bring people’s quilts to life.

Quilted Ever After's prize of longarm quilting details: they will provide quilting, thread, and return shipping for the winner. The winner can choose to quilt from the quilt along or other similar sized large throw. Winner pays to ship the quilt to to longarmer and for batting.

You can find out more on the Quilted Ever After website and Instagram.

BONUS - Just for the participants of the quilt along, Quilted Ever After is offering 20% off longarm services for all quilts (not just QAL quilts) from now through the end of the quilt along!  When you reach out to them, simply tell them you are part of the QAL for the special pricing.

I (Meadow Mist Designs) will be awarding prizes for two winners: a charm pack, quilt patterns, and Aurifil thread.

  1. Super handy to have all the graphics / schedule for each pattern! I look forward to seeing all the quilts made during the quilt along. :)

  2. My fabrics are cut! I'm ready to sew Star Rays.

  3. My fabrics are ready & I'll get started hopefully tomorrow after a hectic day today. Thanks once more, take care & hugs.

  4. I just ordered my book today is there any way I can get the cutting instructions for the quilt I am doing or is it ok to wait for it to come , I didn’t want to get behind.

  5. I've started cutting, since I'm using scraps I had to go look back at the book to see your recommendations for how many pieces to use from each set of scraps.

  6. which quilt fo you think is easiest? (asking for a friend🤭)

  7. Is the facebook page the only way to submit?
