Retro Flowers QAL (Follower Friday)


This week instead of our usual one guest for Follower Friday, we have two! The lovely Megan from City Stitches and Bianca from Sweet Diesel Designs.

The reason for two followers this week is that these ladies are collaborating to host a QAL that starts in April. They're calling it the Retro Flowers QAL.


They will be using the Retro Flowers pattern by Christina from The Sometimes Crafter in the QAL. In order to participate you MUST purchase the pattern, they will not be providing templates or explicit pattern details in their posts. The pattern is $10 and can be found here

You can also get acrylic templates from Jill at Made on Main Street

What's a QAL without some giveaways??
Our judges will be Rachel (Stitched in Color), Nova (A Cuppa and a Catch Up) and Christina (The Sometimes Crafter)


Prizes are sponsored by Fat Quarter Shop:
  • There will be 2 giveaways each featuring a Jelly Roll of your choice! Both Bianca and Megan will be giving away one of these randomly at the end of April.
  • Grand Prizes: To be eligible for one of the grand prizes, you must submit your finished quilt through the linky party by June 1. Here's the breakdown..

    One grand prize will be awarded by Christina (the pattern designer) to the quilt which most exemplifies her vision of the pattern (color, quilting, final product, act).

    Two grand prizes will be given out for best (and most modern) use of color and fabric. These will be judged by Rachel of Stitched in Color, Nova of A Cuppa and A Catch Up, Bianca of Sweet Diesel Designs, and myself. 

Now, from personal experience, I've tried this pattern and it is SO quilter friendly and easy to make, don't let the curves scare you off! Plus, check out the gorgeous work already happening in the Flickr Group 

I'm off to choose my fabrics and get things ready!
Enjoy the weekend :)
