Row by Row and more!


This sweet project is from Red Button quilt Company.  I used Minnick and Simpson's "Farmhouse Reds"  by Moda.  LOVE this fabric line.  I really considered keeping the entire line for myself.  The pattern is $12.00 and the kit with pattern is $26.95.  The foundation papers for English paper piecing are included.

This is a joint effort for Row by Row 2018.  Kori's Fabric Creations is the 18" square block on the left, then Folktales block, and Tangled Threads' block on the right.  The kit comes with directions and fabric to make it as the center block or a block all on it's own.  "The Hills are alive with the Sound of Music..."  My favorite rendition of this classic musical is Leavenworth's summer production, done in the outdoors surrounded by mountains.  SO worth the trip to Leavenworth.  And then there is the hiking, 
the beer, the brats...
License plates are $5.00.  The mini plate are $1.00.

This was one of my favorite things at Quilt Market.  The pattern is $10.00.  The kit with pattern is $39.95. 
 The beads add great dimension.


This is a beautiful new fabric line from Timeless Treasures.  
I can hardly wait to get started on the quilt project! I might have to make the wallhanging for each of my kids.

 Here is a smattering of some of the new fabrics that have arrived this week...


 Here is Folktales' block for 
2018 Shop Hop.  Hope you like it!
Now I have to focus on getting the kits ready for Row by Row and Shop Hop.  Row by Row begins June 21 and
