Welcome to Week 5 of the Christmas 18 QAL and here is Block 4 ….

Block 4 of the cut&alter Christmas 18 QAL is released today and, if you have signed up, will be in your inbox shortly. This week’s block takes the half square triangles (HSTs) we have been perfecting over the first 3 weeks and shows you how to easily turn them into quarter square triangles (QSTs).  Whilst there looks to be lots of pieces in this block once you are familiar with the method it really does not take too long to make up.  There’s still plenty of time to take part so if you do want to make the whole quilt and join in the fun of the QAL, then head on over here to get the pattern. If you don’t have time for the quilt but fancy just making this block, then you can also purchase a pattern for Block 4 over here in my shop.

Here are some of the blocks made by my testers in alternative fabric:

The QAL participants are really making progress now and the blocks all look great together ……

If you are thinking of joining in at some point then there’s still plenty of time to play catch up.  The blocks do not take that long to make and we are a lovely, friendly bunch of ladies!
