Boy do I LOVE the Row By Row Experience!! You've heard of it, haven't you? 2,500 quilt shops across the U.S. and Canada are participating from June 21st through September 8th. Go to any participating shop and receive a FREE pattern for the row they've designed. They will all measure about 9" x 36" and the theme this year is "H20". Many of the shops have kits to make their row and these wonderful fabric 'license plates' you can incorporate into quilts. Some have the theme fabrics designed just for this event.
If you make a quilt with at least 8 rows, quilt it, bind it and put a label on it and are the first person to turn it in to the shop of your choice, you win 25 fat quarters!
I happened to be on a road trip from southern California to Sacramento the weekend it started and collected 8 rows along the way. I've made 5 of the rows already!!!
Go to Facebook and search "Row By Row Experience" and you'll see a lot of the shops and their rows. There's an interactive map of EVERY quilt shop participating so you can search near where you live or where you'll be traveling this summer. I guarantee you'll find shops you never knew were there!
