Starry Bright Sky Sundays (3): 11 blocks layout revealed!

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.

In previous weeks I shared:
  1. the inspiration
  2. the sewing techniques that will be used

And now, for today's post...

THE BIG REVEAL of an 11 blocks layout!
Why 11 blocks? Because I will be sharing patterns once a month from January 2018 to November 2018, so that you can have a finished quilt for the 2018 holidays!

IMPORTANT NOTE 1: I will share MORE blocks during the QAL. 
Each month I will share 2 blocks using the same technique.
One block is the monthly block shared today and one will be a mystery revealed each month! :) :)

I may also have bonus patterns... so if you don't like one of the blocks, consider participating anyway because you may fall in love with the companion mystery blocks :) 

What do you think of the blocks? 
Which is the technique you are most excited about? 
Which one are you most curious to try out?

IMPORTANT NOTE 2: The layout presented above is only ONE of the possible way you can set the blocks of the QAL. I will have a very special layout/sashing option to share with all of you in one of the future Starry Bright Sky Sunday posts... it is something unique and fun, because I want to create one of a kind quilt for me, and I think you may be interested in following along on that sashing option too... You have to wait to know more! :)

IMPORTANT NOTE 3: You can use the coloring page to play around with your favorite color combinations. In future posts I will share other color combinations to inspire you,  but for now, take out your pencils and color away!!

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.


  1. Hi,
    This looks like a fun QAL. I love all the different pieced blocks, and am looking forward to this starting in the new year. ~smile~ Roseanne @ Home Sewn By Us

  2. Ciao Alida, non vedo l'ora di iniziare...
    A presto Emanuela

  3. Hmm, I have a book about fabric origami, but have not tried it yet...that might be the block I'm most looking forward to. All of the blocks look fantastic!

  4. I can barely stand it!!! Having to wait till NEXT YEAR to start this!!! Absolutely LOVE the designs!!! Thank you! Thank you!!!

  5. This project looks great! Hope you won't be starting with the applique though - a nice piecing block to start would be best for me! 😀

  6. Interested in all the blocks, but the fabric folding/origami caught my eye.


I love to connect with all of you wonderful people!
