The Summer Book Club QAL is back!
This 8-week, casual quilt-along celebrates both the love of quilting and all things literary. Join us to build your very own “library” with hundreds of fellow quilters from around the world. Participate in weekly giveaways from generous sponsors in the crafting industry for a chance to win some seriously cool prizes, and share about your favorite summer reads with other book-loving quilters.
Want to join in?
There’s no need to sign up. Just start sewing along! You can jump in at any time. Follow @katebasti on Instagram for the weekly details, and tag your posts with each week’s special hashtag so that the rest of us can see your growing masterpiece!
Need the Tall Tales pattern? Visit my Etsy shop! The pattern sells for only $1, and all sales benefit the Ronald McDonald House Charities through the end of 2022. Some quilters will also opt to use my Taller Tales pattern bundle which features three additional book patterns, however, this is completely optional.
What you create is entirely up to you! Make a quilt, wall hanging, table runner, pillow sets – anything goes! And because your project is unique to you, your schedule will be, too. The schedule below will be used as a guideline throughout the eight week QAL, but you can tailor it to fit your needs. For example, if making a large quilt, you’ll want to decide how many Tall Tales blocks you’ll need for the project to then determine how many blocks you’ll need to complete each week. The fun begins June 6th!
Week 1: Decide Your Project & Pull Your Fabric
