If you have a hubby or a partner who has hardware stored within a garage or a workshop, maybe, just maybe, it is time to go on an expedition to said garage or workshop to find an embellishment or a tool for your next quilt. Whether your quilt is an art quilt or a traditional applique, there is probably something readily available close by or at your local hardware store.
Row By Row 2018 will begin on June 21.
New theme - Sew Musical.
From June 21 till Sept. 4 the FibreChick shop will provide one copy of a of a Sew Musical pattern for free to anyone who enters the store and requests it.
Added fun with Row By Row Junior. Kids aged 6 to 14 years old can visit the shop, in person, and receive one of six complementary Row By Row Junior patterns.
Can't wait for summer sewing to begin!
In the past, in desperate need of an embellishment for a last minute quilt that had to be completed, I have dragged my husband John to the hardware store. This is how the eyes of my 2015 row for the Row By Row Experience was completed. I felt the beady fishy eyes needed a little enhancement. Discovery - lock washers. Lock washers added the needed bling around the beady eye and I supported a shop by buying locally. 2016 and another row. Theme: Home Sweet Home. The houses needed door knobs. During a visit to the local Home Hardware I found the perfect wee brass door knob - brass finish washers. Lo and behold, the right sized bead will hold a wee brass door knob nicely in place.
Past rows featured in this blog write up are from 2015 and 2016. Piecing, fun stitching and interesting uses for "hardware are all a focus for any patterns produced at the FibreChick shop.
