Free-motion quilting by Veronica Hofman-Ortega
In my travels as a fabric rep, I heard about this program over a year ago and thought it would be a fun event. I was excited to hear that the Tennessee shops are participating this year. The 2014 Row by Row theme is "Sew a Season."
One of the Chattanooga quilt shops, Pins and Needles, asked if I would help draft the design of their row pattern. How cool is that?!? Stacy, the shop's owner, chose to illustrate Fall—her favorite season.

If you want to get a jump start on making this row, I'll be teaching "Paper Piecing the Red Barn" on July 1 and again on August 13.
|"The Red Barn" Intro to Paper Piecing class: July 1 or August 13.|
So, are you ready to hop???
The Row by Row Experience officially starts Tuesday, July 1. See the Row by Row web site for details, shops and how you can win fabric and prizes. Visit YLS (your local quilt shops) for patterns, kits and extra projects (I hear several shops have great things in store). Then hit the road to collect more.
There are even two Tennessee Row by Row BUS TRIPS planned that will leave out of Chattanooga heading east and north. Contact Pins and Needles for info about the Bus. Get quilting!
