Thanks to all of the comments on my Giveaway Day post I have lots of different sites to share with you.  I did limit the list to current, online QALs, Sew Alongs, and BOMs only.  I'm afraid that there is no way I could ever include all of the swaps, round robins local "alongs".  So without any further ado, here they are (and if I've missed one, please let me know!):
  1. Bestie QAL - a fun sew along between friends.  Make matching quilts with/for your best friend.
  2. Forest QAL - 12 cute forest themed paper pieced blocks.
  3. Super Penguin QAL - another series of paper pieced blocks.  It seems to be on hold since she is having a baby but has promised there will be more.

  32. Block Rock'n Block of the Week - a weekly paper pieced block named after musicians

  36. Steam Punk QAL - I could only find a Flickr group on this one.
There are a lot of great projects out there to take part in and nearly all of them have prizes (yay, prizes!).  Sorry I couldn't put up pictures of all of these but hopefully you'll think it's worth the time to follow the links and take a look.  You might be surprised with what you find!


    1. Thank you for sharing these! I am definitely going to be checking many of these out!

    2. I was recently thinking of finding a QAl (as if I need more projects!),thanks for this, it must have taken ages to put together.
