Row By Row Experience 2015!

 We're so excited! The 2015 Row X Row Experience 
begins next month!
All 50 US states and Canada, too!
Over 2500 shops!
So here's how it works:
It's like a shop hop, but it's not... no fees, no cards to stamp, and all summer to play! Simply visit any of the participating shops and receive a free pattern for a row in a quilt. Combine your rows in any way to create a unique quilt that represents the fun you had traveling throughout the summer. Travel with friends, discover new quilt shops and have fun collecting rows!

This year's theme is Water.

Create a quilt using at least 8 different 2015 rows from 8 different 2015 participating Row x Row shops and be the first to bring it into a participating shop to win a stack of 25 fat quarters (6-1/4 yards of fabric!). 
Use that shop’s row in your quilt and win a bonus prize!  

It will be the biggest and best Row by Row Experience™ ever in 2015! All 50 states and several more Canadian provinces are planning fun for travelers throughout the summer. Although the quilt shops are organized by area, quilters have no borders. Travel, shop, collect patterns and add rows to your quilt from any anywhere!

Look at our Calico Mermaid license plate-
Exclusive Fabric Plates™ by Zebra Patterns will be available in shops around the country. Each one is unique! Collect a bunch to create fun projects, sewing studio wall art or even a fun backing for your quilt.
Last year we made a bag with our Happy Quilter License Plate.

Here's where you can go to see which shops are participating & plan your own road trips: 

You can go to each area's Facebook page to see the free row patterns & quilts already turned in:

It's going to be such fun!
I'll show you our row as soon as she's ready!

Marjan Kluepfel's Plantasy class

We had such fun with Marjan last Saturday!
She's amazing.
She shared her techniques & tips on design.

The class had some beautiful color choices.

 I hope we're able to have her come back again soon!
