Plus Playtime QAL Parade of Finishes and Giveaway

It's here! It's HERE! How did it come up so fast? Seems to be a theme in my life of late. Nonetheless, I've been getting more and more excited as I see all the finished flimsies and quilts in QBL, from blogs to Instagram to Flickr.

Before we go any further, I'd like to thank my sponsors once more:

I am so grateful for their generosity and immediate yes! of support. I do hope you patronize these wonderful peeps.

My own Plus Playtime quilt, Electric Swirl, has already been blogged about, and I will be including it in the parade below. I have a second one that I hope to get quilted up before the linky party closes. If you made two, you get two entries in the linkup so be sure to do that!

Two things! 
One: the linky party will be open for an entire week, so that gives you some wiggle room!
Two: if you didn't get a chance to quilt up your flimsy, link it up anyways for a chance at one of these fabulous prizes. This is an inclusive (and grateful for your participation) linky party, so even if you linked up on June 12 with your flimsy and haven't done a dang thing since it's okay! Even if you all of a sudden got the oomph to sew sew sew and you have a flimsy now, then please link it up! This is a parade!🎉

And just a wee plug for Connecting Threads: if you haven't started quilting your Plus Playtime, they do have batting on sale right now at 30% off their already great prices.😉 That's an affiliate link, so thank you for your support!

  1. Hi Sandra! Thank you for hosting this wonderful QAL and a special thank you to each of the sponsors. It certainly is nice of them to agree to sponsor you. I have had so much fun making this quilt, and have already selected the fabrics for another, larger sized one. I am looking forward to visiting each participant in today's (this week's) parade. Happy Happy Friday to you! ~smile~ Roseanne
