We are participating in the 2015 Row By Row Experience! Starting June 21- Sept 8th you can collect. Sept 9- Oct 31st you can sew!
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!
Complete a quilt using at least 8 different 2015 rows from 8 different participating 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!). Go to for complete details.

Congratulations to our Winner, Carol Murschel! Beautiful job!
