  1. Everyone did a great job on their blocks! Congrats to all the winners!

  2. What an awesome parade and QAL! It was fun to watch from the sidelines. Rin looks great in any and all formats (I especially love pillow)!

  3. Thank you so much for hosting this quilt along. I think I fell in love with the technique and while I don't have immediate plans to do something else with needle turn applique, I can see it being a useful process to use in the future. This parade is amazing; there are beautiful blocks here and it is so neat to see their variety and the different ways some were quilted. And holy cow, I am floored that I won a prize! Thank you so much!

  4. What a beautiful set of blocks everyone did! I just really enjoyed this QAL. The low pressure plus incentive to try one of Carolyn's pattern made for a lot of fun.

  5. This was so much fun! I'm glad I stumbled onto the QAL because it really inspired me to start sewing this project. Thank you!!!

  6. Thank you Cheryl for hosting such a fun QAL. I enjoyed learning about and experimenting with Carolyn's needle turn appliqué method. I am excited to continue plugging along on this quilt. Thank you so much for the generous prizes and I'm thrilled to win the thread. You're the best.

  7. Congratulations to everybody and to the winners . Sorry I wasn't able to take part , it looked like great fun
