Starting February 1, 2021, Tourmaline & Thyme Quilts will be hosting a Kitty in the Middle Quilt Along (QAL). This QAL will be available on a private Facebook Page. With your purchase of the pattern and access to the QAL, you will be able to join other quilters for video tutorials, helpful hints, community spirit, and the opportunity to see others work. Think of this a virtual Quilting Bee!
What will you need? This QAL comes with a copy of the pattern and you will be emailed a code and link to the QAL in Facebook. The administrator will approve your access with the proper code. After that, you will need the supplies listed in the pattern. It is not necessary to use the fabrics listed in the pattern. You can choose your own fabrics. In fact, the first week will help you convert the pattern to your own fabric palette!
What skill level is this QAL? This QAL is designed for confident beginners, but all are welcome!
When does it start? February 1, 2021. You can join and start at any time.
What if I miss the start? Not to worry! You can join and start at any time. There is no attendance requirements or quizzes. You work at your own pace. Sharing your progress with others is a great motivator to keep this from becoming another UFO in your collection.
How long does it run? The QAL is scheduled to run for twenty weeks with a new section done every other week (10 sections). The schedule is set to motivate you not, shame you. Some will work faster than others. Those that work faster can give tips to those working more slowly. That is the beauty of a QAL.
What if I don’t do Facebook? Right now, that is the format we are using. However, we are looking into other formats for future QAL.
