Retro Flowers QAL

You may have heard by now that there is a new QAL in town but perhaps you don`t have the deets.

Megan of City Stitches, the mama of my bee, We Bee Modern Too, and her mate Bianca of Sweet Diesel Designs have put their heads together and come up with a fab QAL for the Retro Flowers pattern by Christina at The Sometimes Crafter. It`s all about curves - don`t be afraid.  They are much easier than they look! Go conquer your fear of them.

Participants MUST buy the pattern to quilt along, Megan and Bianca will not be giving templates or explicit pattern details in their posts. It is only $10! It`s downloadable as a PDF.

Prizes will be sponsored by Fat Quarter Shop!
There will be 2 giveaways each featuring a Jelly Roll of your choice!
There will be 3 grand prizes each featuring a $75 gift certificate to Fat Quarter Shop!
Guest Judges for the Grand Prizes include Rachel of  Stitched in Color, Nova of A Cuppa and a Catch Up, and Christina of The Sometimes Crafter.
