A UFO is completed


 Finally, I am back after a long break. This is a quilt I completed during the Stay at Home order. It was last years Row By Row one. I had the center complete and could not decide on a border. I had sewed one on and didn't like it. Took it off and then it sat as a UFO. One day I saw the perfect border in my sewing room...It had been on the shelf at least a year. I quilted it with a sand dollar pantograph. I am happy with it. All the quilt shops rows I used were from the Raleigh NC area.

This is my latest quilt project. I started with a panel  of cheerful daisies and bluebirds. I  donated it as a silent auction item for a local historical site's fundraiser. It went for $200.00. i was pleased.

Row by Row experience...The Cherry Pit ( Sevierville TN)

This is The Cherry Pit quilt shop's row by row sample.

This shop had sooo many samples displayed.
I loved them all.

I love the colors and "fun" look of this one.

Lots of patterns to browse and choose from.

I could not resist this one with the snowman.
The shop is well worth going out of the way to visit.

Row By Row experience...Red Barn Custom Quilts ( Sevierville, TN)

Red Barn Custom Quilts row by row...I love the sunflowers and their  license plate.

The shop had a nice display of color quilts on display....made me
 wish I had my sewing machine with me!

The color was colorful and very inviting.

I love this sample from the book Simple Stars Beautiful Quilts.
