Learning Quilt-A-Long (QAL)

Welcome to the Learning QAL

Two of my favourite things are Quilting & Learning! This Learning Quilt-A-Long will celebrate these two. I hope you'll join me as we learn from each other and share our Quilting & Learning journeys.

It's been over five years since I started blogging. It's probably the most important thing that has happened to my quilting. Since I've been taking the time to reflect on my quilting and learning, I've become much more aware of what I learn. I've come to understand that although practice is important - it's the reflection on that practice and the learning that makes me grow as an artist.

This Learning Quilt-A-Long is my way of giving back to this amazing internet quilting community. I have learned so much from bloggers across the world. Quilters are so generous with their time, talent, advice and praise.

Since setting goals helps many of us get organized and motivated, the Learning Quilt-A-Long will start with a Learning Goal Setting link-up at the beginning of the month, and then a Learning Sum Up at the end of the month.

 Links to each month's link-up:
Here are the details of the Learning Quilt-A-Long:
  • Please grab the Learning Quilt-A-Long button and place it on your blog.

Quilting & Learning: What a Combo!
  • The Learning Goal Setting link-up will open for 10 days on the first of the month.
    • In this link-up, tell us what you will be learning this month. It can be anything that will take you out of your comfort zone - a new technique, working with different colours, a new pattern, a course you're taking, or a tutorial or instructions that you will share on your blog so that others can learn with you! 
  • The Learning Sum Up link-up will be open five days before the end of the month and will close the last day of the month.
    • In this link-up, you will share with us what you've learned. The project can be completed or still a WIP (Work In Progress). This Quilt-A-Long is about the journey - the finished project is a bonus!
  • On the next month's Learning Goal Setting link-up I will randomly pick from everyone who linked up to both Learning Quilt-A-Long link-ups for that month to be our winner (prizes will be announced at the beginning of each month). 
  • Check out some of the other blogs and don't be shy about leaving comments :-)

I've listed this Quilt-A-Long on the 2017 Quilt-A-Long Linkup with Busy Hands Quilts.


  1. I don't have a blog. Can I join anyway? Luv learning new things. I also get bored very easily and hate making the same thing more than once.

    1. Hi Ruth, I'd love to have you join us. You could leave a comment with each link-up. If you're on any of the other social media such as Instagram or Frickr you might be able to leave a link. Let me know and we'll work something out. You can email me at quiltinglearningcombo at gmail dot com

  2. This is an amazing idea. I've posted it on Quilt BOM on wordpress, too.


I would love to hear from you - and since I have now fixed my settings, you should be able to leave a comment.
