Row by Row Experience™

Sandy and LP worked on the Splendid Sampler™ for a year....that internet quilt-along was a GREAT experience....and we had fun. It added a major "sew and tell" element to our TMBC Tuesdays.

But now what??

NOT TO WORRY -- they finished their Splendid Sampler™ quilts just in time to start their Row by Row Experience™!!

You've never heard of that??

Here -- from their website:

Row by Row Experience™ began in 2011 with 20 quilt shops across New York State. Today thousands of stores across the US, Canada and Europe welcome travelers through their doors. The quilts created with those rows are stunning… and no two are alike! 

Although the quilt shops are organized by area, quilters have no borders. Travel, shop, collect patterns and add rows to your quilt from anywhere! Read some of the amazing stories about the rowers (quilters) and Row by Row quilt shops around the world on the Row by Row Studio blog. Even Prince William received a row as a gift!
Oh, yeah -- THIS IS GONNA BE FUN!!
This is a VERY DIFFERENT EXPERIENCE from the Splendid Sampler™.

Row by Row works more like a Shop Hop. There are thousands of participating shops -- and each shop has created their own, unique "pattern". You can go to the website, and see the designs -- then decide whether or not you want to drive to that shop to buy their kit. (or pick up the free pattern).

They cannot sell the patterns to you over the phone or online...


Sandy is our official Facebook Editor, and camp photographer.  She took some pictures of the first Row By Row patterns.
LP had a friend visit (from Virginia) -- and she brought many patterns with her -- PLUS they went on an Iowa Row By Row Junket...
This was one of the first Row by Row kits LP finished...did I mention the fact that her daughter in Texas is doing a Row by Row tour of the Texas shops...(and her other daughter is doing the same thing in Illinois)...
Sharalan is trying to collect 8 patterns featuring campers...
Because there is a THEME every year...and 2017 is "On The Go!"
Oh, yeah -- THIS IS GOING TO BE FUN..!!

  1. For a true PNW Row by Row, you need to have Mt. Rainier, Space Needle, and Bigfoot somewhere in your rows :-)
