Just few reminders today!! We have been seeing so many beautiful blocks!! I am very happy to see that you are all enjoying this event!!

If you didn't hear about the QAL before, please visit the Growing up QAL page
Visit the QAL page to find all information about the quilt layout, all the future blocks and the rules to participate.
I recommend you to subscribe to the QAL announcements via email, so you don't miss out on future posts! You find the subscription Google form on the same QAL page (at the end of the page).

Now let's get down to some details.

This month technique is Traditional Piecing
with a focus on Half Square Triangles (HST)

** NOTE **
There was a mistake in the pattern: in the Lady of the Lake block, I wrote to cut 20 squares of each colors, but you actually only need 10 squares of each color (20 squares total) to make the 20 HST that are required for one block. Sorry about the mistake, but at least you have some extra that you can use for another block to get an extra entry in the giveaway if you want ;)
****

Remember that the pattern for the board is shared for free via email to the people that shared a picture of last month finished block in the linky party.
If you did that, you should already have the pattern!

If you didn't (and you think you should have) just send me an email at tweloq(at)gmail(dot)com and I will get the pattern out to you.

For the full list of rules and explanation on how/where to share your projects, please refer to the post listing all the QAL rules!

And if you need an extra incentive, we are going to have THREE winners for this month. 
The prizes for this month are listed in a previous post! 
You have until March 5th (11.59 pm EST) to enter your block(s).

I will draw the random winners between all the people entering a picture of one block from this month. Multiple blocks will give you multiple entries, as long as they are in separate picture in a separate link in the linky :). I will announce the winners when I share the next month pattern.

****
FOR THIS WEEK INSPIRATION...
There are so many artists that use traditional piecing to make amazing masterpieces! 
Here I feature just few to give you some different ideas on things you can do with the versatile shape of HST!

Welcome to the Smashing Quilt Sashing series, where every month we review some sashing options for the Growing up QAL blocks.

The fabric requirements for the sashing options presented in this pattern are for a 4x3 layout, with 12'' finished blocks.
However in the pattern I try to give you a general idea on how these sashing options work, so you can easily adapt them with different size blocks and using more or fewer blocks.
