Social distance. It’s a new phrase – and a new way of life – for most of us. But I think it’s a bit of a misnomer. Because even though we’re separated physically, we aren’t really alone! From video chats with grandkids to friendly greetings from across the street, there are a million ways to connect every day, and I’m sure grateful for that!
One little girl spent hours decorating the sidewalk with chalk. She drew a hopscotch that stretched from one end of her house to the other. As the neighbors walk by, they can’t help but hop their way through that ‘scotch. It’s the little things that bring us together, even when we’re apart!

Are you coming through Missouri this summer? Come and get a taste of Hamilton and pick up your very own Row by Row block pattern in the Main Shop or Penney’s Quilt Shop!
The Row by Row Experience is a wonderful program started in 2011 by Janet Lutz to help quilt shops attract more visitors in what might otherwise be slower summer months. All the quilt shops participating in Row by Row (find all the other participating shops HERE) have their very own free pattern to help you make a quilt block. If you are the first to complete a quilt using at least eight rows from eight different 2019 participating shops, you win a stash of 25 fat quarters, and you win a bonus prize if you use our Missouri Star block and bring it in to our shop!
The theme for Row by Row this year is “Taste the Experience” and we have our very own pattern for you to collect! Below is a sample of our block.
To see what the rest of the pattern looks like, come to the Main Shop or Penney’s Quilt Shop in Hamilton and ask for our Row by Row pattern! Each customer is limited to one pattern. We also have a special Row by Row kit available!
Our Row by Row experience will be available in-store until Sept. 3, which is also the deadline for participants to turn in their quilt to win a prize.
To learn more about the Row by Row Experience and see great projects, watch this video from Amy Barickman for Indigo Junction below!

Take a peek at a U.S. map, and you’ll notice that Utah, Colorado, Arizona, and New Mexico are laid out like a giant four patch with perfectly nested seams and lovely 90-degree angles. The Four Corners Monument marks the spot where they all come together. It’s the only place in the country where you can stand in one spot and be in 4 states at once!
This week Jenny is working on a Four Corners quilt. Each block brings together 4 pretty corners with a cute little “monument” in the middle.
