The Aiming for Accuracy quilt-along (QAL) was held in the Summer/early Fall of 2013. The lessons, blocks and detailed photo tutorials have been removed from this site and are now available for sale as a complete booklet.
Find out more about it here: Aiming for Accuracy Booklet.
It’s finally time to submit your quilt top photos to be eligible for one of the grand prizes for our Aiming for Accuracy Quilt-Along.
The free quilt-along tutorials will be removed from this site, the shopping cart system and Craftsy on October 31st early in the morning. Please be sure that you’ve downloaded all necessary files and saved them to your computer. Just adding the files to your Craftsy library or wish list is not enough, you need to download and save the files.
