Potter's Wheel Quilt Along WEEK EIGHT! Last Week!

We've made it to the final week of our QAL!  Assembling your quilt top week. Thanks so much for joining in, and encouraging each other!

I haven't shared many pics of my quilt, mostly due to this: since the design wall played a big part in colour placement in the quilt, and my sewing room is in our basement, it's tough getting a good pic.  My quilt top is ready for the Longarmer's this week!

I have to admit, I was curious (read: nervous) how this would turn out.  Making an ombre from pink to white to teals to dark greens to black, I was worried if it would look broken up and there would be no flow, but wow!  Somehow it turned out!  I think the colours bleed into each other well.  Phew!  I'm so relieved that gamble turned out better than expected!

I've got the backing pieced, using my favourite Invisible Pieced Backing tutorial, and I've decided to bind with either a pastel teal or the leftover low volume neutrals.  I'll get the binding made this week.

So, onto the good stuff!  Here's a review of how the giveaway will go:

We have four prizes from four great sponsors! Winners will be randomly chosen from those who have posted a finished quilt top by midnight on the last day of Week 8, which is Sunday November 18th. Winners will be announced on Nov 19th.

Info on the Giveaway sponsors and the Giveaways are all in Week Seven's blog post.
1. We have two Longarmers happy to quilt your quilts at a discount, and before Christmas. Sheri in Nova Scotia, and Dara in British Columbia.
2. We need to see an IG post with your finished Quilt Top by midnight Nov 18th to be entered in the draw for the giveaways. If you don't have Instagram, please email me briarhilldesigns@gmail.com and put in the subject line, "PWQAL Giveaway entry."
3. If you'd like to use a pattern that will use up those awkward leftover curved pieces, use the coupon code QALTREAT for 40% off select patterns from my Etsy shop. That's the best discount I've ever offered. Coupon code is exclusive to QAL subscribers, and to three patterns: Glimmering, Best Dressed, and Hearth (available at the end of the QAL). Coupon code is valid until Nov 30th.

I'm seeing amazing finishes all the time on my IG feed! Way to go friends!
