Row by Row Experience 2015: Row by Row H20!

1,250 Quilt Shops in the United States and Canada came together last year to give you the free shop hop event called the Row by Row Experience and this year is going to be even better!  This is Missouri Star’s first time participating and we are so excited!  Each shop has a unique row pattern following a theme and you can go into their shop and get a free pattern to make the row.  This year’s theme is “Row by Row H20,” so all the patterns are water themed!  This is our row (pictured blow).  It’s called Sail Away and we think it’s pretty awesome 😉  Come into our shop for the free pattern now!

We also have exclusive fabric plates available in the shop during this event, which can be purchased in the shop, so that you have an additional keepsake from each shop you visit!  Here’s what ours looks like (below — the black binding was added for display).  It measures 8″ x 4.5″.  While the pattern for our row must be picked up in our shop here in Hamilton, Missouri, our fabric license plates are also available in our online shop HERE.

As a participating shop, we will be awarding a bundle of 25 fat quarters to the first customer who brings in a completed (quilted, bound, labeled) row quilt using rows/patterns from at least 8 different shops, with a special bonus prize if the finished quilt includes our MSQC row! The chance to win ends October 31, 2015.

Here is a map of ALL the quilt shops participating!!


Our Shop Hop Quilt!

We are in the Show Me Safari Shop Hop again this year, and are having a blast!  This years theme is Halloween and we made a row quilt.  Each Shop designed it’s very own row.  I just wanted to show the picture of our quilt off to you!

Mom {Jenny} and Jill. Can you see my cute Dad at the quilt machine back there?

Can you guess which row we designed??

If you are on facebook you saw that I bought  a new {to me} sewing machine this morning! I am so excited!  The machine I’ve been using is awful and I’m excited to be able to sew some more.  I have some really fun projects and ideas I can’t wait to start on!

Mom of course, never stops sewing and we have more and more in the works for you all!

SO, have a great weekend.  I hope you do something you love.  Go out and enjoy the beautiful Fall weather with your family, or sew-sew-sew!

Talk to you soon,
