Retro Flowers Quilt Along: Wrap Up

So we have done it, we have made it to the end of the quilt along! I have seen some beautiful quilts coming together in the flickr group and I am so excited to open submissions and begin the contest for the three grand prizes!

Thank you all for participating! This was my first quilt along, and I have learned so much from everyone's feedback. It was so fun and I definitely plan to do another one in the near future!

Ok, submissions. I know everyone wants to know how to get their quilts in the running for the three 75 dollar gift certificates from Fat Quarter Shop that we will be awarding! We tried so set up a regular linky party on both of our blogs, but we didn't have any success. SO! Our new plan might actually be simpler. We have created another flickr group called Retro Flowers Quilt Along Submissions. All you have to do is join the group and upload a picture of your finished quilt. For judging purposes, it might be good to include a close up of the quilting if it is hard to see on the full shot of your quilt.

Here are just a couple of the ones I have seen go by in our flickr group!

Submissions will close June 1 and we will make our decision. Don't forget, it won't just be me and Bianca deciding. Rachel from Stitched in Color, Nova from A Cuppa And A Catch Up, and Christina from The Sometimes Crafter will all be helping us make our decision. I hope everyone is as excited as I am!!

I also want to give a big thank you to Fat Quarter Shop for sponsoring the prizes throughout our Quilt Along. They are fabulous, and if you have not checked out their website, you should definitely go see all of the fabulous things they have to offer!


  1. oh wow and there's my top with my cats on your post! Great! And thank you for everything. This QAL was my first and it is so much fun! I hope, that I'll get my flowers quilted next week!

  2. I better get busy. I still have 7 flowers to make and then quilt and binding...yikes!

  3. Oh wow, these are so pretty. I'm so behind but am hoping I might be able to squeeze in to be a part of the finish line too! I've loved watching this QAL, everyone's made such gorgeous quilts! The judge are going to have a tough time picking winners!

  4. Oh I don;t think I will be done in time, but loving life in the slow lane xxx
