Did you take part in the Row By Row experience last summer? If yes, it is coming back even bigger next summer. If no, great ready for some summer fun.
Check out the website to see all the provinces and states taking part. 2014 included 26 states and Ontario with over 1500 participating quilt shops. See the winning quilts on Facebook. Each area has its own Facebook page and you don't have to have an account or page to view the results.
Here is how it works:
1. Starting on June 21 and until September 8, 2015, whenever you travel look for the participating quilt shops.
2. Each shop you visit will give you a free pattern for a row based on the theme of water. The row must be 36" long finished and no more than 9" high.
3. If you want to take part in the contest, collect a minimum of 8 patterns from 2015 participating shops. Go home, make a quilt with the 8 rows. You are free to choose fabrics and settings for your quilt. Piece it, quilt it, bind it and label it. Be the first person to bring a quilt through the door of any participating shop and win a 25 fat quarter bundle. The Shop you will at may add a bonus prize if you include its row.
That's it. Travel, visit and have fun. Start planning with your guild friends and quilt buddies.
Here is a sneak peek at the logo and fabrics by Timeless Treasures for 2015. One of the license plates on the last fabric is from a shop in Ontario!
