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 16 of the Aiming for Accuracy Quilt-Along (A4AQAL). This is a shorter than normal lesson, focussing only on joining together the three top sections that we’ve completed. I know many of you are eager to see your quilt top come to life.

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. The tutorials are FREE until the end of October. A comprehensive booklet will be available for sale containing all tutorials and lessons November 1st.

There are no prizes for this lesson per se, however, tomorrow the prize post for Lesson 15 will be available. You can enter just Section C from Lesson 15, or this completed lesson to be eligible to win. Don’t enter both Lessons 15 and 16 photos though.

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.

Several of the Facebook quilters have already joined their three sections and they’ve given me permission to share their photos here.

It’s been a super fun weekend watching the quilts come to life. I’m just incredibly amazed at how fantastic they all look. I really had no idea my pattern could be made with such a wide variety of fabrics and they all work. I can’t wait to see the finished quilts with the borders attached at the end of the month.
