I've been busy playing and cleaning! I've been collecting row patterns and making files. I've been cleaning house, upstairs mainly, and still having the grandkids over to fill some of the days. Boy do they ever keep me busy. No sewing when they are here. :D
Here is my quilt top for the row by row experience. It should be back from the long arm on Saturday. Yippee!
I also pulled the trigger and bought a Bernina 580. So far so great!!! I'm loving it!! Can't wait to start embroidering.
Have a wonderful day and keep on stitching and stamping!
I recently ventured over to Illinois for some row fun. I gained 4 new ones and the best news ever, I have two trading buddies, who have trading buddies. I now have 127 patterns. This is quite awesome because out of all of the patterns I've been sent, some are actually on my "must have" favorites list.
My hubby and I traveled to Mammoth Caves, KY to tour the caves. What a fun trip! We made it double duty and I think I had the most fun!! Because… I got to stop at some quilt shops and not only pick up their row by row, but I also got to get some more cute fabric along the way. Now it's time to start sewing these babies together!!
The omish buggy row came from Shipshewana, IN today. Yoder's department store.
Of course you can view any state participating by typing in row by row experience Facebook and state name into google search engine (my preference). :)
Any questions, please ask me. I'm willing to trade patterns too from other states. Or share if you're needing one. :D
I've been traveling for vacation this past week and I decided along the way I'd visit a few of these shops on Facebook for the Row By Row Experience in quilting. :) On Facebook you may type in the participating state and then type row by row experience. Then click on photos and you should see each participants quilt row. For instance, Indiana Row by Row Experience. wahlah!!
Each shop listed on the Row By Row Experience has an individual design quilt row measuring around 9" x 36" I think. (don't' quote me) The pattern is free and some stores have kits made up and they are very reasonable.
I collected some of these rows and purchased a few yards of fabric along the way. I even found a gem of a pattern, Simplicity 4993 which is the cat, dog, and bear flannel rug quilt/wallhanging. The price was $2.00. YES!! $2 So look around those fabric stores that also sell Simplicity patterns and you just may find this one lurking in their drawers. LOL
I'll attach the rows that I have right now. I don't know if I'll be getting anymore but this sure was fun!!
Until my next adventure or craft project, Happy Stamping/ Quilting/ and Crafting!!
