    Looking forward to seeing all the tips and tutorials everyone has.

  2. Patty says:

    Looks like fun!

  3. Great idea! If you have a QAL that runs or ran over several weeks/months, do you link up the main page post?

  4. Oh, my goodness. It is a competition? I forgot that bit! I will put up a post anyway, just for the spirit of joining in and sharing.

    Hello Yvonne! Oh phooey…once again, I forgot all about this fun event. Therefore, I am going to have to put my brain to work quickly and come up with some great ideas for tutorials. Thankfully, I do have at least two that will hopefully be attention grabbers that will help some quilters learn a new tip/tutorial. You and Cheryl have put together such spectacular prizes for each category! LOL…I just thought to myself, it has been so long since I have posted anything at all on my blog, I do not even know if I can remember how to post a tutorial. Yvonne, I am being seriously laughing yet at the same time not knowing what to do if I can not remember how to do the whole process. If I have trouble may I ask for your help? I will try tomorrow and not tonight. Have a great evening!

I really appreciate the time and thought you take to comment, and I look forward to conversing with you. :)
