Growing up QAL - March blocks

Wow, what an amazing few months, with all your your fantastic blocks!!! 
It's time now to get to the third block of the fun Growing up QAL!

If you didn't hear about the QAL before, please visit the Growing up QAL page
This is a wonderful Skill Builder, because every month I will be featuring a different technique and we will have step by step instructions to walk you through the entire process, from cut to finishing.

Visit the QAL page to find all the information about the event rules, the quilt layout, all the future techniques and more.
I recommend you to subscribe to the QAL announcements via email, so you don't miss out on future posts! You find the subscription form on the same QAL page.

While I am doing my best to work ahead and prepare future blocks and patterns, I am a single person running the show and I have a full time job... 
I am also an immigrant in US...
I go to work every day for the American people, to support terribly sick people and give my contribution to maybe one day discover a cure for the worst illnesses. This is a contribution to all the people, American and not, any race, any gender, any ethnicity, any age, any anything...
Last November the American people sent me a message that I am unwelcome, useless and unwanted. It is hard to keep doing my full time job... but then I go to work and I see real people suffering and I don't care who they voted for. I will give them my decades of education, experience and hard work until they decide I am disposable. But until then, I will keep fighting for them too, because there is hope for humanity, we have seen it happening in the worst times of history: as long as some humans maintain some of their humanity and spread love instead of hate and fear, there is hope.
That said, this is a note about this QAL... as I said, I am doing my best to work ahead on these patterns, but I am not sure if I will be able to continue the QAL to the end of the year, as I may be forced to leave this country and running a QAL will suddently have a very low priority in my life.
I hope you will understand.

Now let's get down to some details.

This month technique is the Curved Piecing,
We have two different blocks to practise!

Remember that the pattern for the blocks is shared for free via email.
If you shared a picture of last month finished block (in the linky or via email directly with me), you will get this month pattern by the end of today (or maybe you already got it)!
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 to the post with my self-interview.
If you shared a picture but you don't get this month pattern by Tuesday, please send me an email at tweloq(at)gmail(dot)com. I will send you the pattern.

If you were not able to share the picture of the previous pattern, don't worry!
By the end of this week, this month pattern will be available in my shop for a very small price: if you buy the pattern, make the block and share it before the deadline, you will get future patterns for free again!

If you are new here, you can get this month pattern for free, but you will have to pay for previous month patterns, if you want those blocks too.

Next week I will feature the link party where you can link up your blocks.
The following week I will give you some sashing ideas for the final quilt, and the weeks after that we are going to see some inspiring work of other quilters using the same technique in different blocks!

So are you excited about this QAL?
I surely am!! Grab my button and share the love (button on the side bar)!
The more people join in, the more fun it will be!!

Until next week,
Happy Stitching!!

Remember: all the details about the series are collected in the QAL web page.
