2016 Row-by-Row Progress

At this point I've collected 15 patterns from shops participating in this years Row-by-Row shop hop.  Some of them I love, some not so much.    I'm hoping / working towards putting together a quilt with 8 rows in it so that I can turn it in for a prize here at one of the shops here in Wyoming.

I have 4 rows finished at this point, and will be starting on the 5th row today.  The rows that are done are these -

The top one is from one of the shops I stopped at in the Dallas area.  There be more rows from TX to join this one.   It is machine appliqued.

Row 2 is from a shop in Cheyenne WY.   Combination of machine applique and piecing.  Still need to go back and fix the end logs on both sides and the bottom fabric before putting the quilt together.  This row was one of the two kits that I've purchased in the hop.

Row three is from the quilt store in Lusk WY, the shop I was on my way to when I drove into the really nasty rain and hail storm last Friday.  Background is pieced and the rest is machine Appliqued.   Tents are 3D.

Row four is from a shop in Laramie WY.  I also bought the kit for this row because I really wanted the background fabric and they didn't have any by the yard.   Did substitute fabric forthe tepees because what was in the kit was too light to fit with the fabric used for the animal figures.


Still to come are two rows that will be running vertical, and two more that run horizontal.

Gratitudes:

1. Beautiful spring/summer weather at this point here in WY.

2. Never having unpacked all of the boxes I have stuff packed in.  =)

They are all nice rows, but I do love the last one best, I think. I'm glad you changed the tent fabric, because these look perfect!
