Retro Flowers quilt-a-long!


I'm sure by now you've all seen pictures of Christina's beautiful quilt and design called "Retro Flowers".

Well, I'm excited to announce that Megan of City Stitches and Bianca of Sweet Diesel Designs are hosting a Retro Flowers Quilt A Long!  (read all about it here)

I've been very excited to have been given permission to sell acrylic templates for this design, and you can find those in my shop.

So the big news is that I'm giving away 3 sets of these templates for all you QAL'ers!  Just leave a comment on this post (one entry per person) and make sure I can find you if you're a "no-reply blogger".  I'll leave this giveaway open until Sunday evening, so enter now and tell your friends.

Don't fret if you've already purchased a set, if I have your name on my 'sold' list you can pick a different product from the shop as a substitute.

I hope you're all as excited as me about this quilt a long!

(Oh, and check out the flickr group while you're at it!)

  95. I am so excited to be quilting again after a very long break (almost 8 years). Now, coming back in, I am CRAZY for the Modern Quilting! (I used to stick to Traditional Applique). So when I saw the Retro Flowers quilt, I was like Pavlov's dog! Drooling for it! hahahah I can't wait to get started and learn the curve technique. Having the templates would be so HELPFUL!! Thank you for your generosity in offering the Templates. I would LOVE to win a set! :)
