Deep in the Heart of Texas Roadtrip QAL

Did you know that if you save a blog post as a draft it wont automatically post when you want it to. Well that's what happened to this post lol. I planned on it going up last week, but I had a brain fart and thought I scheduled it when i hadn't. Better late than never though!! 

So I am really excited to be a part of the first ever Deep in the Heart of Texas Roadtrip QAL! It is being organized by two fantastic ladies, Cristina (from Pretty Little Quilts) and Melissa (from My Fabric Relish). On the roadtrip, Myself and other bloggers from various Texas cities will be showing you how to make a Texas Quilt. At each city you stop at you'll learn how to make a block designed for that city, learn some fun stuff about the area, and you'll get a chance to win some awesome prizes!!!

For the QAL, we will divide Texas into four different quadrants, and the pattern for the first quadrant will be available 1 June (find it here). And then on June 2 we will stop at our first city--Dallas. The Roadtrip will continue through August, and there will be link-ups along the way, and in August we'll have our final link-up and Quilt Parade and a chance to win even more prizes!!

Here's a schedule of the stops along the way--
