Slowly but surely // Retro Rubies QAL

How are your Retro Rubies Quilts coming along? Did you conquer those curves, which piecing method is your favorite? I have been watching the progress in the Flickr Group and being completely honest I think most of you are farther ahead than me, haha. Yes, I am a tad bit behind and I am the host. But, the beauty of being the host is I can extend the final submission date! So those of you who are behind like me now have an additional week to get caught up. Here is our new schedule…
  • June 24th- Quilting your Retro Rubies (Aurifil Thread and Machingers Gloves Giveaway)
  • July 1st - Retro Rubies Link Up Party (Final Submissions Due)
  • July 8th - Winner's announced, prizes awarded!

My Retro Rubies Progress

The last few weeks I haven't been able to sew much since I was working on Sew Mama Sew website. About a week ago I tried really hard to bust the quilt top out in one night, but almost fell asleep sewing, haha. Here is my progress via instagram… This week is vacation for my family I plan to sew, sew, sew and we may take a little trip up north to Sedona. I will keep sharing my #retrorubiesqal progress on Instagram and the Flickr Group!
