Row by Row!

Here's our pattern for the Illinois Row by Row Experience. Have you heard about this new quilting adventure?

This of this as a shop hop type event with no fees, no passports and all summer to play. Simply visit any of the participating shops and receive a free pattern for a row in a quilt.

There are 35 states participating and 1,250 shops. The dates are July 1 - September 2 this year. Combine your rows in any way to create your own unique quilt. You can travel with friends, discover new quilt shops and have fun collecting rows!

And there are prizes involved! Create a quilt using at least 8 different rows and be the first to bring it into a participating shop to win a stack of 25 fat quarters (6-1/4 yards of fabric!). Use that shop’s row in your quilt and win a bonus prize!

Each area has their own Facebook page. Like the page from the areas you visit to see pics of the rows, shop displays, winning quilts and fabric plate projects. (Illinois page is linked above.)

Here's a New Pattern

We are making bug bags again - it's a great time of year to be inspired to do these. This is a great project and isn't hard, once you get the hang of it.

The pattern for the Don't Bug Me! Bag is by Cinnamon Cats.  Now wouldn't these be fun to customize for someone you love?!
