Have you heard of the Row by Row Experience? From the description on their website, "It's like a shop hop, but it's not... no fees, no cards to stamp, and all summer to play! 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!" And there are prizes too! Be sure to go to their website to read more about it!
There are shops that participate all over the US, Canada, and Europe! Check out the list of participating shops to find one near you!

It's the beginning of May, so it's time to reveal the final round of the round robin quilts! If you missed the first three rounds, you can catch up here - Round 1 - Round 2 - Round 3.
This was the last time Heather and I swapped the quilts! Now we will each finish our own (we're giving ourselves two months to do that!).
Do you remember what Heather's block looked like last month? She had added a border of purple and aqua fabrics.

As you may know by now, it's super hard for me to resist a challenge!
I learned of the My Stash, My Style challenge through Instagram.
Jenifer Gaston, author of "Primitive Style," and Tonya Alexander, author of "Stash Lab," (along with the publisher, Martingale) teamed up to challenge readers (and themselves!) to create projects from the book that is furthest from their normal style. Jenifer's style is mostly folk art, and she uses wool and traditional fabrics. Tonya's style is more modern, and she uses bright and colorful fabrics in her projects.
