Starry Bright Sky Sundays (2): Techniques

In early August, I announced the Starry Bright Sky QAL and many people subscribed to the mailing list and they seem to be excited about this event!!

Even if the QAL will start in 2018, I decided to start a series of posts (one every 2 weeks, on Sunday) to reveal bits and pieces of the events, so that I can get your feedback and we can get more excited about it!!

I will announce sponsors, featured techniques, color scheme options, layouts, and much much more! There are several special things that I've never seen in other QALs before so I hope you will find them intriguing, inspiring and a learning experience!!

I am working on different layouts, different colorways, sponsors and giveaways, etc. It is going to be extra fun!

If you are interested in learning more about this QAL and join the fun, leave your email address in the Google Form in the QAL page at this link.

And now, for today's post...

Let me share the lineup of techniques that we are going to cover as the months go by!!
  1. Applique Silhouette
  2. Traditional piecing
  3. Fabric folding/origami
  4. Improvisational piecing
  5. Fabric cutout (paper snowflake style)
  6. Curved piecing
  7. Fabric weaving
  8. English paper piecing
  9. Foundation paper piecing
  10. Embroidery
  11. New York Beauty
What do you think of this list? 
Which is the technique you are most excited about? 
Which one are you most curious to try out?

For some additional fun... 
I started playing around with the concept of creating stickers that you can use in your planner/journal to add visual and colorful reminders about the QAL and about all the important things in your life that you need to fit in your busy schedule!

You can download the PDF clicking the link below. Print them on shipping label paper, cut them out and decorate your planners and journals! If you use them, let me know what you think of them! I would love to hear your feedback!!

Remember to join the mailing list in the Google Form if you don't want to miss out on future posts!

Until next time,
Happy Stitching!!

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

  3. Ciao Alida, non vedo l'ora di provare la tecnica origami !

  4. I am curious about learning so much - and I am most excited about the New York Beauty, I have allways wanted to do one but have just not gotten around to it, I'm looking forward to it all :-)

  5. I have always wanted to do a Mariners compass but have been a little fearful it would look wonky.
