Texas Teardrops Quilt Along Comes to an End

Wow!  My first quilt along is officially over.  I would like to thank everyone who participated and helped make my first quilt along a success.  I’d like to think I did an okay job with this one but I know I have a lot to learn.  Quilt alongs take quite a bit of time to prepare and execute.  I definitely learned that.

I have 5 awesome prizes to giveaway and I had planned on announcing winners today.  However, I want to make sure I don’t miss anyone in the prize drawing.  I’ve started a discussion in the Flickr group to verify my count.  Please either leave a comment there or here if you uploaded a picture of a project.  I hope that makes sense.  I just don’t want to miss anyone.

I have 5 pretty awesome prizes to giveaway.  Want to see?

From the the awesome Riley Blake, a fat quarter bundle of medium dots!

From my favorite thread company Aurifil Threads, two bundles of Aurifil thread.

From my favorite Moda designers, Me and My Sister, a lovely fat eigth bundle of Shades of Black.

And from my favorite sponsor, myself (of course I’m kidding), an assorted bundle of 11 Me and My Sister fat quarters, plus a couple solids.

Of course I was kidding when I said I was my favorite sponsor.  I am super appreciative to Riley Blake, Aurifil Threads, and Me & My Sister for their generosity.  You all wouldn’t be getting such great prizes without their amazingness!

Soooo…if no one comments either here or there {Flickr} I’ll go with my count and draw for prizes tomorrow.  Hopefully I’m accurate and no one misses out.  I wasn’t hitting the wine when I visited Flickr so we should be good.

  1. I can’t tell you how many compliments I’ve had on my quilt.
    Thank you so much for doing this QAL. It was the motivation I needed to get my quilt done on time.
    I think you and everyone did an awesome job.

  2. Vicki; I won`t have mine quilted for some time yet, the the pictures are up on blogger and flickr of the finished top. I have had so many compliments of this quilt; and I just love it!! Am so anxious to get customer quilts finished and quilt my Teardrops.

    Thank you so much for this QAL and pattern

  3. I really enjoyed this QAL, and LOVE my quilt. I’ve had offers to sell it. I refuse to part with it. AND I’m making another one! This one will be in blues and yellows.
    Thanks for making this QAL possible Vicki! Can’t wait to see what you come up with next! No pressure of course! LOL

  4. Vicki, I think you did a terrific job for your first QAL. You were well organized and everything from my point of view was clear and concise. But since it was also my first QAL I wouldn’t know if anything was missing anyway. :/ So I guess I’m not much help. :/ But speaking for myself I thought it all went along very well. I did post a pic of my finished quilt top. Even after a couple of long days with unwilling borders that were a pain in the rear I managed to complete my top. Phew… had doubts for a while! And it even quit raining and the sun came out long enough to toss the quilt top on the grass for a couple of outdoor pics. I surely was not as much of as achiever as some of the “wonder” ladies because I didn’t get mine completely finished like they did. But Kudos are certainly in order for all that actually sandwiched, basted, quilted and bound their quilts!! Yay for them! They should get extra rewards somehow for their perserverence. Great job, ladies! Thanks again Vicki it was fun and am looking forward to working on the back this weekend and hopefully getting started on the quilting. If it turns out the way I hope there will probably be another Texas Teardrop in the works before too long, Thanks again Vicki!! I’d QAL with you any day! 🙂

  5. You did a great job!! I enjoyed every step of the way! I think the length of time was perfect, and I learned so many new things during the time. I think this was the best way to make my first quilt. I stressed out when my sewing machine up and quit on me. But I guess that’s what I get for having a cheap machine. After I got through that stress and a finally got a new machine, everything went smoothly (even though all I had left to do was add the borders). I can’t wait to tackle the quilting process, and i signed up for a class to learn how to do that. My friends have all complimented my quilt, and I have showed them others on the Flickr group and they think they are all amazing too! What an awesome group of talented people! I am still in awe of the people who completely finished their quilts! They look marvelous. Thank you again for doing this, it was so much fun!!!
