Fabric for 2024 QAL Sample Quilt

After working through the Bonus HST sizing two weeks ago, I was able to put the finishing touches on my rough draft of my 2024 quilt along (QAL) design. Northcott Fabrics has generously been providing the fabric for my QAL sample quilts for the last several years, and this year is no exception. I requested the yardage to make the sample quilt from them and it arrived late last week.

Photographing the fabric was challenging, the darker fabrics either seemed to recede together or the lighter fabrics were too washed out, but in real life, the fabrics look *just* like I expected. Thanks so much to Northcott Fabrics; I am really looking forward to using these lovely blenders and testing the QAL pattern.

    I’ve experienced reds doing the same thing when I try to photograph them. But yay for having the fabric in hand so you can get started.

    I am excited to see the pattern for this year’s QAL Yvonne. I haven’t participated in one of yours yet. Hope I can do so this year!!

  7. Very pretty fabric palette! I appreciate the challenge of photographing very pale and deep dark colors together, and I think your photos do all the shades justice. Can’t wait to see what you make with these!

  10. Fun gradation of pink! It isn’t a color that is in my stash a lot, but I am totally in love with this.

    Very pretty fabric choices. I enjoy sewing with high contrast lights and darks, photographing works in progress is always challenging. My darks always look black in the photos. You did a great job with your photos.

I really appreciate the time and thought you take to comment, and I look forward to conversing with you. :)
