Hey everyone! T.G.I…. time for the next Twilight Stars block release! If you can believe it, we’re already six weeks into my Twilight Stars Quilt-Along, which means that if you’re all caught up you should have ten completed blocks so far, with two fresh ones coming your way in a few minutes. Just a reminder, as always patterns for these blocks are located in my book, Triangle Gatherings (required to participate in the QAL along with a few other items), which can be purchased on our website by clicking HERE. New to the quilt-along? A blog post I did explaining the full details on Twilight Stars can be found by clicking HERE. The full list of details and required supplies can be found at the Twilight Stars Info Page by hitting the button below!
I’m having a lot of fun with this QAL and hope you are too. Since I’m forever working ahead, I’m beginning to have quite the collection of blocks to look at next to one another, and already have a great idea of what this beauty is going to look like when it’s all put together. Simply put, I’m going to love it! Ready to add to your collection of completed blocks? This week’s Twilight Stars Quilt-Along block releases are block numbers 3 and 8!
As far as my own blocks go, you probably already know that I’m using my Rustic Gatherings fabric line combined with Jackie MacDonald’s Halloween-themed collection, Spellbound. Both lines feature color palettes including rusty oranges and rich blacks, along with some nice grey selections from Rustic that go together like peas and carrots. Here are my blocks this week. Let me know what you think of what you’ve seen so far in the comments!
Thank you to everyone who has been sharing their work on social media! We’ve had several happy prize winners so far as a result, with many more to come. Want to be one of those winners? All you have to do is post a photo of your completed blocks each week before the release of the next batch, including the required book Triangle Gatherings and Primitive Gatherings Triangle Paper in the picture. Please also include the hashtag #TwilightStarsQAL in your post! Heidi will choose a winner randomly each week until the end of the QAL, which we will then announce during my LIVE show every Thursday. Super easy! Just ask this week’s lucky winner, Debbie Chapel and her super handsome cuddle bug and block inspector, Tommy!
Not participating in the Twilight Stars Quilt-Along but still want to win a prize from Heidi’s famous prize vault? That’s easy too! As I always say, I love getting comments here on the blog as well as on our Facebook pages, and my YouTube channel STITCH with Lisa Bongean. Comments and likes not only let me know what we’re doing right (and wrong), but they also help us stay on top of our social media game in the big bad world of algorithms… And trust me – that’s a good thing! That’s why I want to give a big shout-out to this week’s blog comment prize winners – Robin T. and Chris T. Thank you, thank you, thank you (remember, I do not post last names or email addresses for your privacy, so if you think you’re one of the lucky winners this week please be sure to check your email. You can also contact Heidi at email@example.com if you have not already received a prize confirmation letter from her.)!
Well everyone, it’s beautiful day out there and it’s still early! I have a laundry list of things to do this weekend that includes a little bit of both work and fun. Of course, there’s always stitching to do and projects to work on, but I’m also going to try and make a point of doing something fun outside since the weather is so nice. There are several local summer festivals and events going on with lots of live music and good food to offer, so I’m sure I’ll find something fun to do…and maybe I’ll even manage to convince Nick to join me! I hope you all have a wonderful weekend and as always – do your best to stitch everyday! See you soon. ~Lisa
