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.


Welcome everyone to Lesson 12 of the Aiming for Accuracy Quilt-Along (A4AQAL). This is our last block/unit lesson. The results of our should we take a break poll from last week were close, but the No’s win. Over the next three weeks, we’ll be putting the main sections of our quilt top together. Busy weeks!

If you find you are behind, don’t fret. Just be sure to download the free weekly tutorials before the end of October, when they’ll be removed from this site. As we’ve been going along each week, I have also been preparing the finished document for the Aiming for Accuracy quilt and I hope that, while I have provided the lessons for free during this quilt-along, many of you will also be willing to purchase the finished document in November.

While I can appreciate that many of you will be able to figure out the finishing instructions for the next three weeks, based on the blocks already completed, I would gratefully appreciate it if you did not share the math or even the photos, should you decide to work ahead of the lessons.

If you’re new here, check out the main QAL page where you’ll find all the information so that you can join us on this QAL adventure.

We have weekly prizes that everyone can enter. Each Sunday (evening), there will be a blog post available on the Quilting Gallery site, where you can upload your completed photo for that week’s lesson. Check the main QAL page for the link. You’ll have until the following Sunday evening to enter.

There’s still time to submit your Lesson 11 photo(s) to be eligible for the prizes for last week. Submit your photo(s) here.

Our Volunteer Prize Coordinator, Amy Gay of Butterfly Angels Quilting, will choose winners on Monday and will announce the winners on the prize blog post, in our Facebook Group and send emails. Please be sure to check your spam folder as Amy has been having difficulty reaching some of the winners from previous lessons.

Reminder: We are chatting up a storm in our Facebook Group, come join us, and you can also share photos in our Flickr Group too.
