Thanks for Joining the March Hare Quilt-Along!

Here's Everything You Need to Know

I'm kicking things off on March 28th.  I'll be on Instagram Live at 7:00pm, MST, to draw the winning names for Giveaway #1!
Beginning on March 29th, check your inbox each Monday for an email from me.  If you haven't already, add amy@dappledthingsquilting.com to your contact list so that the emails don't get sent to your Spam folder. 
 
The Quilt-Along will last five weeks. We'll focus on specific techniques each week.  Inside each email you'll find my favorite tips and a demo video.
Each week, you can also submit your questions to me via email at amy@dappledthingsquilting.com.  I'll answer your questions directly, as soon as I can, and I'll also include the questions and answers in a Q&A section in the next week's email.
On Monday, April 26th, your final email will be an invitation to our Zoom Party that evening at 7:00 pm MST.  Bring some treats and let's celebrate!  We'll meet up and show off our completed quilt tops.  Come with any final questions you may have. 
 
The Zoom Party is also where Giveaway #2 is happening!  If you participate in the QAL and post your finished quilt top, you're automatically entered and you've got a very good chance of winning a prize!  Your attendance at the Zoom Party isn't mandatory to win a prize but it is highly encouraged. In the final email, I'll give you instructions for posting your quilt photos to Instagram before the Zoom Party, if you can't be there.
