Hi Stampers,

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

Hi Stampers,

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!!

I've Been Absent But Busy! LOL Cherry Jubilee Quilt Top and SU Order

Hi Stampers,

I'm sorry I've been gone so long! I've been super busy with this Cherries Jubilee Quilt Top and the grand babies! :D

If you're a beginner quilter (which is what I consider myself), I wouldn't recommend taking on this project too soon.  I loved it and I have tons of patience; this would be why I tackled it. Plus I love a challenge!   Whew!!

The grand babies are around every week. I love them both so very much! My daughter is expecting in February. :D  Another grand baby!!

I received my SU order for July. I'm loving everything in this order! I can't wait to share it with you and especially some handmade cards!

I bought the new Cricut Explore. Wow! I have to say this baby is going to come in handy for cutting appliqué shapes. I should do a tutorial for you! :)  To talk or not to talk is the question? LOL  Not too many um's that's for sure!!

Well Stampers (and Quilters); stay busy this summer, stay healthy and safe!

Have a great weekend!!
