Row By Row

There's a shop hop type event going on called Row by Row Experience.  If you want to read about it, check out the website www.rowbyrowexperience.com.  I have been shop hopping around Georgia, Tennessee, South Carolina, North Carolina, and Virginia.  

One of the "features" of the Row by Row shop hop is the ability to collect fabric licenses plates which resemble the state's plate with a quilty saying on it.  Here are some of my collection...

 Aren't they just so stinkin' cute?  I haven't figured out exactly how I will use them on my row-by-row quilt but I know they have a place.  

While at the shop in Martinsville, VA, my very talented, artistic granddaughter, Sarah, spotted some fabric ink.  She selected a variety of colors.  On the way to her Dad's house, we stopped by the mall and picked up a pair of white Vann shoes. Here is her result...

She is just so talented.  She painted the "tie dye" and blended the colors.  Then she overlaid the black ink using a toothpick.  I am so very proud of her.  She helps me pick my quilt fabrics and layout the quilt blocks.  Now that she's living in North Carolina with her Dad, we quilt by cell phone.  Better quilting with technology.
