Celestial Star QAL: Changing up the Schedule

 photo Celestial-Star-QAL

I've been thinking a lot about the schedule, and did a quick poll on Instagram today, and I have decided to adjust the schedule of the quilt along. I will have the full details in the next few days, but for now, the biggest change is the final link up for all the grand prizes. Here's a quick update:

  • This week will be another progress week
  • The final link up will open September 29th (previously September 1st) and I'll announce the winners on October 6th.

I know a lot of people mentioned that they won't be able to start on the QAL until later this month or not at all due to the timing, and now with lots of children starting school in the next few weeks, that can get busy for a lot of us. I think having more time to finish up projects will make it more fun, and less stressful, and hopefully more people will be able to participate!! Yay! :)  It has been awesome so far and I have had so much fun with all of you who have been participating so far! It sounds like a lot of you will also benefit from this change. :)

If you have any questions, feel free to ask away!!

If you decide that you want to join in now with the new schedule dates, I'd love to have you!! :) You can see the schedule and all previous posts here. (I'll update this when I have a more solid schedule for the rest of the QAL.)

You can purchase the Celestial Star pattern on Craftsy, or in my new shop. :)

Here's my latest finished block:

And my first four completed blocks:
