How about this, a shop hop type event with no fees, no passports and all summer to play! Texas has now joined the Row by Row Experience. Simply visit any of the participating shops and receive a free pattern for a row in a quilt. Combine your rows in any way to create a unique quilt that represents the fun you had traveling throughout the summer. Travel with friends, discover new quilt shops and have fun collecting rows!

Create a quilt using at least 8 different rows and be the first to bring it into a participating shop to win a stack of 25 fat quarters (6-1/4 yards of fabric!). Use that shop’s row in your quilt and win a bonus prize!

To see which shops in your area are participating, just visit the Row by Row Experience website. You can also visit the Texas Row by Row Facebook page. As the shops get their rows finished, pictures will be posted on the Facebook page.

Our row is designed, as you can see below, and the pattern almost finished. I hope you'll join us on this summer journey!
