This time of year- quilt shops all over the USA, Canada and Europe offer a challenge called Row-By-Row. Local quilt shops create blocks under this years theme "🏡 HOME" and folks like me collect as many free patterns, purchase kits for the rows I really like & store created license plates.
Quilters who complete an 8 row minimum quilt and are the first to display to a quilt shop win fat quarters. (That won't ever be me!)
But I love the collecting part. And this year there are lots of applique!
So, my week started with a road trip with a few members of The Tyler Modern Quilt Guild. We visited McKinny & Plano, Texas and had a ball!

slowly, working my way through applique details...
Anyways... that will have to be it for sewing for a while...
The visit with my family is off to a great start! (And they even picked up a row along the way!)
