How do I know? I'm participating in two totally awesome quilt along's right off the bat! There are the past ones I need to finish up but I'm going to try to get these two done while they are being published. I think that may help in the motivation/encouragement.
With that I'm going to sign myself up for TWO QAL's start this month. Both have seriously awesome leaders!
