2018 Row by Row Experience is here!!!

Drum roll please! It’s that time again for the Row by Row Experience ™! This year’s theme is “Sew Musical”.  The RxR experience has been going on since 2011.  Fast forward to 2018 and the RxR experience has expanded to include not just the Row by Row program, but the 9th Row, Wooly Block Adventure, Row by Row Junior and the Row by Row Showcase.   This year’s Row by Row program kicked off on June 21 and will run through September 4.  For those of you who might not be familiar with Row by Row, it’s like a shop hop, but it’s not… no fees, no cards to stamp, and all summer to play! Simply visit any of the participating shops and receive a free pattern for a row in a quilt. Combine your rows in any way to create a unique quilt that represents the fun you had traveling throughout the summer. Travel with friends, discover new quilt shops and have fun collecting rows! For more details, including a comprehensive listing of shops by state, please visit: http://www.rowbyrowexperience.com

This is my shop’s design, so be sure to drop by and take a look. You can get a free pattern or purchase the kit. Each kit contains the pattern and all the necessary fabrics for completing the block. Happy traveling!

West Virginia Quilt Festival & Row by Row

Just a reminder that next week starting on June 22 – 24 is the WV Quilt Show in Summersville, WV. https://wvquilters.org/Festival.html On the 21st of June the Row by Row starts all over the US and Canada. Check for quilt shops anywhere you go and pick up your Rows to put together in a quilt.

Whew! Such a busy time…!

As summer approaches, a variety of quilting events are looming on the horizon!  First up is the West Virginia Quilt Festival, beginning 22 June 2017! Can you believe it?    During this time period, the Row by Row Experience and Junior Row by Row Experience will start,  followed by the West Virginia Mountain Quilt Quest in July!  Of course, getting ready for all these events began months ago and I have a feeling things won’t be slowing down any time soon.  Here is a little something I “whipped up” so folks participating in the quilt quest can see what all the shop hop blocks would look like put together in a quilt.  I’m quite proud of the results!  What do you think?

I also used the West Virginia Mountain Quilt Quest bird panel to create this.

I was most pleased with the results!

Needless to say, here in West Virginia,  we are very excited to see the quilting event season to begin.  It is our opportunity to show off our our beautiful state, our hospitality and our love of quilting.  So get out that GPS, gas up the car and hit the road.  See you soon!
