It's easy! Simply visit any participating quilt shop during the summer and ask for their free pattern for a row in a quilt. The 2016 theme is Row by Row Home Sweet Home, and each shop is working with the home theme in their row. The shops are happy to give you the pattern at no cost, limit one per person, walk-in customers only. Kits are also available.
Home Sweet Home – our two businesses (one in Michigan, one in Tennessee) require a lot of travel from most of our staff – to shows, to deliver machines, to support our customers. As we travel from the blue waters of Lake Michigan to the green of the Smoky Mountains, seeing familiar landmarks as we approach our homes is always a comfort. The lighthouse of St. Joseph and the skyline of Nashville are landmarks of our homes and always welcome sites. The blocks tell the tale of our travels – Road to Michigan and Crossroads of Tennessee. The interesting part of their combination was that they formed x’s and o’s (hugs and kisses), part of any welcome home. Designed by Carol Thurston.
You have from June 21 through September 6, 2016 to collect the free patterns. You have until October 31, 2016 to submit a quilt for a prize.
