Wow! We are overwhelmed by the number of quilters out and about for the shop hops. We are close to 500 so far in July. Thanks to everyone for taking the time to visit and get to know us.
The July Shop Hop theme is Sew Canadian. The 13 shops have used our red and white blocks to create a quilt unique to each store. It is amazing how different each one turned out. This is ours:
I solved the challenge of 13 store blocks by making 3 more of our 'Jacob's Ladder' block for the four corners. It's a 52" square so you can add a border to make it larger. I thought about using a nice forest green for the sashing but got out voted and went with black.
The Row By Row Experience is an exciting event that is running in July but will continues until September 2. We are fortunate to have Brenda Miller of 'Among Brenda's Quilts & Bags' as a friend and pattern designer. She has created a row , 'A Walk in the Park', which features Nellie, the store dog, going for a walk in the conservation area behind the store. I'll find a photo and post it later... or go to the Facebook page for Ontario Row By Row Experience.
Here is the winner and her quilt for the Row By Row Experience at The Marsh Store. Congratulations to Rosemary M!!
Reminder that the anniversary sale starts on July 28. Check the website for more details.
