Hello! We’re so excited you are here and interested in fussy cutting along with us. We will spend the next 12 weeks sewing along to the blocks in The Fussy Cut Sampler, focusing on a single chapter per week. To participate, all you have to do is complete the eight blocks from each two chapter prize zone on the days the blocks are assigned. If you miss some, don’t worry, you can start again every two weeks to be eligible for that block section’s prize. To be eligible for the grand prize, you do need to complete all the blocks within the set limits.
WHEN TO POST:
Tuesday: 1st block in chapter
Wednesday: 2nd block in chapter
Thursday: 3rd block in chapter
Friday: 4th block in chapter
To make this challenge more exciting, we also have a generous group of sponsors who have donated prizes for this Quilt Along! There will be a drawing every 2 weeks, and to be eligible for that drawing you must have completed the blocks associated with that giveaway on the date each block is due (see prize timeline). There is also one massive, amazing, stupendous prize that will be given away at the very end of the sew along to a qualified quilter who has created all 48 quilt blocks!

HOW TO PLAY ALONG
This quilt-along will be hosted on instagram, though we will do weekly recaps here on the blog. To play along:
1. You must have an public Instagram account. If you have a private page, we’re sorry but we won’t be able to see your picture so you would not be eligible to win prizes. Please consider setting your account to public during this sew along, or create a second account just for your images.
2. Use the hashtag #thefussycutsamplerQAL on all images so we can find them!
3. Follow each of our guest posters, plus our sponsors to be eligible to win the prizes! (@luckyspool, @elizabethagh, @aurifil, @soakwaash, @superbuzzy23, @robertkaufman, @prym.consumer, @cloverusa)
4. That’s it!
We’re looking forward to jumping right in to sewing along with you next week!
