Are you Rowing?

The nation wide Row by Row adventure is on and runs through September 6. The theme this year is "Home Sweet Home".

See our row across the top of this little patriotic flag banner. We were asked us to think in terms of "home" when we designed our row so I decided to feature our courthouse with the Courthouse Steps block surrounded by our brick streets with the star to mark our county seat. Based on customer feedback, we also avoided applique or paper piecing with this row.

Of course, we have kits for our row - just $10 each plus kits for the whole small flag banner quilt.

And the license plates are back. This year we have two as well as the large display banner that we asked customers to sign and write where they are from.

New this year is The Ninth Row. This is a project that brings charity to all of the shopping. In exchange for a donation to The Rescue Mission, we were given this pattern to use and encouraged to do something charitable with it.

This is 36" wide so it could be used as one of the rows in your Row by Row quilt. However, to be eligible for the contest, it has to be --- - - The Ninth Row.

We decided to make our pattern into a wall sign or runner. We have kits that include the pattern free. With every kit that is sold, we will donate $5 to our local domestic violence shelter.  As a footnote, this quilt was made from 1 pack of charms plus the purple for the center background and binding.
