The Sweet Home QAL -- FINALE!

Cozy & Magical Sweet Home 1

Welcome to week SIX, the final reveal week of the Sweet Home Quilt Along 2021, a QAL I'm co-hosting with my wonderful friend and talented artist Sharon Holland, the designer behind the adorable Sweet Home quilt pattern!

Cozy & Magical Sweet Home 2

For week SIX, this final week of our QAL, it's time to reveal our finished Sweet Home quilts! Whether you have a completed quilt top to share, that you plan to send to a long arm quilter, like I do. Or if you completely finished your Sweet Home, quilted + bound, now is the time to photograph those beauties and celebrate! Below you can see the schedule we're following throughout the QAL, but of course we always encourage and want everyone to sew at their own pace!

Sweet Home Home QAL Schedule

To recap, the Sweet Home quilt pattern is designed by Sharon and is available in her SHOP, for those of you just finding out about our QAL. Throughout the quilt along I've been using the Cozy & Magical Quilt Kit available exclusively at Lady Belle Fabric! This version features prints from both of my new Art Gallery Fabrics collections, Cozy & Magical and Plaid of My Dreams. The color palette of this holiday collection is very sweet and I'm loving these prints paired with AGF's Pure Solid in Blushing for the background. I'm absolutely thrilled with how my Sweet Home holiday village came together!

As I mentioned above, I'll be sending my quilt top to Brooke at Lady Belle Fabric who offers an edge to edge long arm quilting service, Lady Belle Quilting, in addition to her amazing fabric shop! I finally decided on my Cozy & Magical quilt backing, Cristmastide Town print, and I can't wait to see it completely finished!

I'll be sure to share more photos of my Cozy & Magical Sweet Home once it's quilted, bound and completely finished. Based on how these quilt top photos turned out, it's going to be so adorable!

In addition to sharing the finale reveal of my Cozy & Magical Sweet Home quilt top I'm also so excited to share this completely finished, quilt & bound Sweet Home from our last Sweet Home QAL, that I'm a little embarrassed to admit I just finally bound over the weekend!

This version is made using a quilt kit by Lady Belle Fabric from our last QAL that is no longer available, but you can find a similar version still available HERE at the Midlife Quilter. The mix of colors and Art Gallery Fabrics prints created the sweetest Sweet Home!

Brooke at Lady Belle Quilting quilted this one, as well, and it's so amazing! The dense, quilting texture the overall quilt pattern adds is so stunning! This is why I LOVE having Brooke finish my quilts now!

  6. Having herpes is not the end of life. There is a treatment that can get rid of Genital herpes with traditional herbs from Dr Kham. I was positive to this infection (HERPES) and I lost hope because I was outcast and rejected even by my closest friends. I searched on-line to know an enquirer cure for HERPES and I got a testimony posted by a patient on how she was cured from HSV by Dr. Kham herbal product, So i decided to contact the same herbalist Dr. Kham because i know that nature has the power to heal everything. i contacted him to know how he can help me and he told me never to worry that he will help me with the natural herbs created by God Almighty! After contacting him, he told me that the cure has to be prepared and he will send it to me via (UPS Delivery service) and unfortunately it got to me after 5 days! I used the medicine as he instructed me (MORNING and EVENING) and I was cured! it's really like a dream but I am so happy now! That's the reason I decided to also add more comments on Him so that more can be saved just like me! and if you need his help, you can email him on or WhatsApp +2348159922297 for more information about his herbal medication visit his website via
