Quilt Along update

Hi everyone.  I know you’re looking for the Spring Petals Quilt Along today.  It is April 3rd after all.  I apologize, but I don’t have it ready yet.  We’ve had a family tragedy this week and life got put on hold for a few days.  I’m trying to get caught up, so please be patient.  I hope to have the fabric requirements and pattern ready for you tomorrow or Sunday.

I’d like to clarify what a “quilt along” is all about.  It will be kind of like a class in that I will walk you through the process of making a table topper.  I’ll provide you with the free pattern and each week I’ll publish a lesson.  You don’t need to sign up for anything and I won’t be directing you to go somewhere else. It will all be a part of updating my blog.

I am so happy that many of you will be joining me for this quilt along and I’m flattered that you’re excited, too!  I’ll be back soon with the first “lesson”.  Thanks for understanding.
