Start Light Star Dark QAL

SLSD Button

I am going to be busy with Quilt Alongs for the next little bit! Not only is my Snowflake Shimmer Quilt Along starting on Friday (!!!), but my good friend Jess @Quilty Habit started her Star Light Star Dark QAL on Monday (and I am eagerly anticipating the start of Cheryl @Meadow Mist Designs latest Mystery Quilt next week and wrapping up the Rainbow Rose QAL written by my friend Ruth @Charly and Ben’s Crafty Corner)! Whoo!

As I mentioned, Jess kicked off her Star Light Star Dark QAL on Monday with her fabric selection post, and I ran to my stash to see what would work.


Shocking no one, I pulled green and blue tones for the baby quilt version. It is going to be fun to see all the different colors and tones used by others in the Quilt Along! Speaking of which, I am also a sponsor of Jess’ QAL, so if you quilt along and make it to the final link up, you can be eligible to win your choice of some of my patterns.

    Playing with contrast sounds like a great fun way to QAL. Love your blues!

  3. Good Morning Yvonne! Sounds like you are having a blast doing QAL and keeping busy all summer long! I am doing your QAL and Happy Quilting Soltice QAL this summer; I do not know if another one will sneak in and join the fun or not. But it really is fun picking out the fabrics and getting excited for each and every step. Yvonne, how generous of you to be a sponsor for so many QAL that I have seen this past month. I would love to win one of your beautiful patterns!! Please continue to post updates on all of your QAL, I am enjoying seeing them come together from fabric selection to completed quilt! Have a fantastic creative day!

    Great fabric pull. I’m working on mine. I think I’m using purple for sure and I’m trying to figure out what I have in my stash that can go with it. I’m light on lights in my stash, so that presents a challenge.
