How to join and participate in the Hampton Court QAL:

To join the QAL, subscribe to the QAL newsletter and blog posts above.  The QAL newsletter is NOT the same as the regular newsletter I send out, so you'll need to subscribe separately if you haven't already done so.  

You can share your quilt in progress right here on the blog.  There will be a linky party where you will upload a picture of your progress, OR a link to a blog post.  A blog is NOT required to join the linky party; it will allow you to upload an image.  Link-ups will close at midnight Pacific time on the Sunday before the next QAL post goes live.


I will be donating PDF quilt patterns along the way and will curate a prize package from my stash for a grand prize for all quilts completed and linked up in the final link-up.

Get the Hampton Court quilt pattern:

You will find the Hampton Court quilt pattern right here in my shop.

2020 Quilt Alongs

Here is a list of 2020 Quilt Alongs.  Feel free to add QALs to the linky using the following guidelines.  Please add the link where the Quilt Along is originally posted even if it's not your Quilt Along.  Hostesses appreciate when you share their Quilt Along, so please share!  This linky will be open through October 2020.

Suggestions when you add a link:
  1.  Check if the Quilt Along has already been added and avoid adding a duplicate.
  2.  Select an image that reflects the Quilt Along if at all possible.  
  3.  In the description, leave the NAME of the Quilt Along, the HOST'S NAME, the DATE it begins and if there is a fee.  Leave a good description - there are 100 characters to use.  The first entry is a good sample.
