This is the last of my eight rows for my 2014 Texas Row by Row Quilt. Fabrics Etcetera is located in Webster, Texas. Their row of bird houses was fun to make and I loved their choice of fabrics. I really enjoy putting together a block that represents things like a house, or a boat, or even a jar of bugs. It is fun to see the picture evolve as you are sewing.
Lone Star Quiltworks is located in Bryan, Texas, home of the Texas A&M Aggies. I was not able to get to the shop last summer, so I had to wait until the 2014 Texas Row by Row event was over. They mailed me the pattern and I used fabric from my stash to create the row. Lots of fusing on this row and I zigzagged around the fused pieced. The pieced bluebonnets turned out nice! I was a little nervous. Great directions helped!
Quilter’s Emporium is located in Stafford. Lovely quilt shop! This row’s name is “Regatta!” The row was as challenging as it looks, but I was pleased with the results!
BJ’s Quilt Shop is located in Bay City. They apparently do not have a website so a link is not provided. My friend, Sally, who also participated in the 2014 Texas Row by Row, picked up the pattern and fabric pack for me. The row is called “Harvest Time.” This was the only row I sewed where all the fabric pieces were actually cut to size by the shop. Talk about spoiling your customers! I think it sewed up in twenty minutes. Not so with any other of the seven rows. My favorite jar is the colorful bug jar.
Now I gotta turn the rows into a quilt top. Planning on hanging it in my quilt room.
