Here is the fabric that I am using!

This is a jelly roll of Harry and Alice Go to the Sea by Amanda Herring for Riley Blake Designs.  The florals in this line are just SO gorgeous.  In addition to this jelly roll, I am adding in some Riley Blake Designs Basics that coordinate with this line.  I'll share all the details on my fabric during the first week of the QAL.  But, until then, you can see images of this line and the coordinating basics HERE.

Don't worry if you don't have any fabric in mind yet!  We will be easing into the QAL starting July 5th and the task that week will be to choose fabric, so you have plenty of time!!

I'd really love it if you can pass along the information on this QAL to anyone who you think might be interested.  I appreciate your help spreading the message!!  Thank you!

Just let me know if you have any questions.

Talk to you soon,
