Row By Row Experience

Row By Row Experience 2016 is here! This is the nationwide shop hop "With no fees, no cards to stamp and runs all summer"! There are even stores in Canada and Europe that are participating. Every shop has a free quilt block pattern that you get just for going into the store. There are prizes! Each store has a 25 fat quarter prize for the 1st person to hand in their finished quilt. Quilts must contain at least 8 quilt patterns from 8 different shops. There is an overall grand prize. Many stores have kits and license plates for sale. The licence plates are fabric and can be sewn into your quilt or included in another project . 

The blocks are 9 x 36 and can run horizontally or vertically. The theme is Home Sweet Home. Our block has a mom and baby hedgehog headed to their under-hill home. 

Our kits are only 10 dollars and include all the fabric, bows and buttons you see here. Each of our stores in Provo, Sandy and Murray Utah have the same license plate but different block designs. You can see a close up of the mom hedghog on our Instagram feed here: @provocottonshop . It will look like this: 

Row rules are that you have to go in person to get your pattern and/or kit.You can collect one pattern per person in each shop.You can buy as many kits as you'd like and can get one pattern per kit. Patterns and kits are available until September 6th. There is then a hibernation period while everyone gets their quilts done from September 7- October 31st. Starting November 1st quilt shops can sell kits and patterns however they want.

A great resource is Facebook. Each state has a Facebook page that lists all of the shops in the state with a picture of their block and license plate. All you have to do is Google the state +row by row experience+ facebook. For example click on this link for the Utah page: Utah Row by Row Experience Facebook
