Are you doing the Row by Row Experience? Well, I'm not, but I have to share a couple of things from my LQSs that are participating.
I saw this "row" in one local quilt shop, and I think it is one of the prettiest I have seen. The designer is a store employee, Annette Rose, and I think she did a beautiful job.
The snowflakes are made using English Paper Piecing and then they are appliqued to the background and the stitching is added. Aren't they sweet snowflakes?
The pattern includes a sheet of cardstock shapes to cut out for the EPP.
Have you seen the clever fabric license plates some shops are selling in conjunction with the Row By Row? Here is one offered by another local quilt shop recently featured as one of the "Top 10 Quilt Shops in America" in whatever magazine it is that does that. (I'm way too tired to remember or to bother looking it up.)
Saturday I attended a class at Village Dry Goods in Brigham City taught by 4 very fun sisters. It was entitled "The Care and Feeding of Featherweights". We learned all about cleaning, oiling, greasing, adjusting tension, changing needles, belts, and lightbulbs--and more!
Our instructors said it was the first time they had ever had 4 men in a class--and they have taught this class a lot! Two of the men came with their wives. The other two were there on their own.
Haven't sewn in three weeks, other than a very little hand stitching when my Mom was willing to have the lights on or blinds open in her hospital room. Not making much progress on the Stars in The Garden.
Remember to leave a comment if you are interested in the pattern and license plate.
Drawing is now closed.
Until next time,
