Getting close: Quilt Along Simply Retro!

Hi everyone! Our quilt along is getting very very close! I'm nervous and...excited! I'm finishing my first quilt from the book, called "Swell", and I can't wait to show it next June 24th, our starting day! We'll have our first giveaway and I'll be using Inlinkz
so you can leave your link to your projects. It'll be so much fun checking out each other projects!

How about you? Have you started? Any blocks done? Have you chosen your fabrics for each project? I can tell you, choosing fabrics it's fun but very time consuming too! So, don't put it off and go for your fabrics!

I also want introduce to all of you our sponsors so far. If you are interested in being a sponsor, please contact me, there is still time!

I'm so thankful for each of our quilt along sponsors... you all are wonderful! Sneak a peek in some of the prizes from each Sponsor:

Hi there! Yes, I am excited to get started on the SRQA! I think I have a project picked and fabric... but might change my mind. But better just get started. I didn't think that anyone would have blocks made yet. Yikes!

Oops, I forgot to say a Thank You to the sponsors... so nice to sweeten the pot a little!

Hi Sinta! I'm glad you've decided which project and fabrics you're going to start! Yes! I'm seeing projects popping up in Simply Retro flickr group! I hope many people can participate even with blocks every week starting next Monday! Hope see yours soon!
