Hi Jana, I hope it is not too late to join your quilt along. I have never done this before but I love love love this book and I intended to make all of the quilts anyway! One problem though, I broke my leg and my sewing time has been limited BUT I did finish sewing the blocks together for Swell yesterday! I'm not even behind!!! I just have to figure out how to join Flickr and post the picture. I don't know much about computers but I really want to sew along with you!!!!

H Jana, is it too late join your quilt along? I just read about it and was so excited....I love love love the Simply Retro book. I intended to make all of the quilts on my own and I would love to be a part of your sew along. I have never done anything like this before and it will be more like sewing with a friend rather than sewing alone. I just completed sewing all of the blocks for Swell together. I still have to put the borders on but that is hard for me right now because I broke my ankle and getting around on the floor is out of the question at this point!!! Borders will just have to wait! But I still would love to sew along with you and the others!

Jana Machado said...

Hi Mary! Sorry to hear you broke your leg :-/
Sure, please join us it's still time!
Look for "add your link" at the bottom of this post.
If you have problem with that please contact me again and I do it for you.
Look for Simply Retro group on Flickr.
Thanks a lot for participating! Take care ;-)

I wasn't sure where to post a comment today... so I will just cover my bases and comment here, there and ever where! I loved finishing up Swell and I'm even more excited to be starting the next project. Thanks so much Jana! I love this book more each time I open it!
