Have you participated in the Row By Row experience before?
I have not, as over the past few years I really didn't have much spare time and when I did have time for quilting, I had plenty of projects to do. Last week, my hubby and I were able to take sometime visiting the Pacific Northwest.
My hubby has customers out there so I tagged along and we added a few extra days.
In the one quilt shop that I visited, I asked about their Row By Row pattern. It was a row of lighthouses and the theme was home for sailors. It was cute so that started my first Row By Row collection.
Isn't that a cute name for a quilt shop?

Back home, I visited one of the somewhat LQS for a demo day and picked up their Row By Row pattern. I continued a little further away to another LQS and picked up their pattern. It was themed America, My Home Sweet Home. Since this is the 4th of July weekend, I went straight to work at putting it together.
I still have some wool appliqué to do and the wording. I just love it! I'm not sure if I will actually put this in a quilt or use it as a runner.
What would you do?
Before leaving for the PNW, I sandwiched my Fancy Fox quilt and I am currently about 50% finished with the quilting.
I also sandwiched a baby quilt that has been a flimsy for quite a while. My excuse for not completing it was that I didn't have someone in mind for it.
Still don't, but it is time. Moving ahead!
