Retro Flower QAL

Thanks so much for all the blogger's out there that dropped over to see me in Plum and June Lets get acquainted blog hop.  I got a great response and hopefully the little story that I told about my Cup Hugger  (No it's not a pattern for a brassiere!) was helpful to let you make your own.
I haven't responded to all of you yet but will by the end of the week.

I would also like to say a BIG, BIG Thank you to all of you that joined my blog. 
I really appreciate it and hope that you will stay with me and enjoy the adventures.

On Tuesday and Thursday of this week it these ladies turn to whip up a tutorial.
(No pressure ladies!).
Tuesday May 29
Heidi from Fabric Mutt
Amy from Amy's Crafty Shenanigans  (great name!)

Thursday May 31
Jodi from Tickle and Hide
Jennie from Porch Swing Quilts
I really enjoyed meeting Kelsey from Kelsey Sews
and her tutorial on making a dish mat. What a great idea!
So I am super excited to seeing what others will make.

Um so I was meant to keep up with Megan at City Stictches  and Bianca at Sweet Diesel Designs for their QAL, Retro Flowers.

I was really excited about this QAL and I promised myself that I would keep up with it, but alas...I haven't.

Correct me if I am wrong but I think that I have to have it finished by the 1st of June?  Oh
(I could have said something else there)

I have got to this stage though...

I have chosen my fabrics.

And bought all the bits and pieces that I need to make the quilt.

Now only
Binding left......
Yea sure I'll get this done!

Have a great weekend.  I am in the middle of making a cake for a special 4 yr old.
