I was a bad blogger last year. I started AND finished so many projects and never wrote a word about them. So now, I will be playing catch-up!!
I'm sure many, or all, of you have heard about the Row By Row Experience that was going on last year, from June to Sept., nationwide and in Canada. I won't go into detail, but but you can check it out here. It was a lot of fun collecting row patterns and some kits. I went to a lot of shops and I wanted to support each and every one that I stopped in to. So if I bought the kit, I TRIED not to purchase anything else, but if I wanted just the pattern, I bought a couple of fat quarters and maybe a notion or 1 yd of fabric. Well, that was my thought process until I got into the shops!! I ended up with way more fabric than I planned!! I just wanted to help do my part in keeping them in business!!
Anyway, my daughter, the teacher (not a quilter) went into shops also and got some rows and kits for me to make for her!! She wanted each row made into a separate quilted wall hanging. I finished the first one in November!! It is a row from Portland, Oregon! You'll be able to read the info I put on the label. I started this while on a 3 week trip to Lancaster, PA. I brought "Peachy" with me and she was a hit with the hotels cleaning ladies!!
Almost done! The trees are paper pieced.
It's a finished wall hanging! This was made from a kit.
I made a strip pieced back with a corner label and hanging sleeve.
Here is a closeup of the label.
That's one row down and I didn't count how many to go!!! All the patterns and kits are in a 12"x12"x4" box. And it is full!! I do have 2 more almost finished and will be posting them when done.
Did you catch the Row by row fever last summer? If so, did you make a quilt from them? I would love to see yours!
