Rowing




Well...I've found a project to keep my mind off the Farmer's Wife quilting that I've been missing...Lori's amazing row-along! This is just week 2, so it's definitely not too late to join in! I'm using scraps from 3 Bonnie & Camille lines for my quilt...Ruby, Vintage Modern, and Marmalade.




I've actually been wanting to make some butterfly blocks for quite a while now, so I was so excited to see this pattern!




Lori's directions are fantastic, as always, and she has sashing on the ends of each row that will make it easy to stitch up your rows to the correct size!

Okay...now that I'm finished I have nearly 2 weeks to wait for row 3...I wish we could convince Lori to  make this a weekly row-along!

Thanks so much for stopping by! Have a wonderful day!

I've been so tempted to join Lori. Yours is adorable, Sherri.

Oooh, very pretty. I'm trying to convince myself that I don't need anything else on my plate at the moment but the more I see of Lori's rowalong, the harder it is not to join in! :o)

They are beautiful!! I spent yesterday making butterflies, too, and I just love them! What a fun sew-a-long (like I needed a new project, right? Thought I could resist, until I saw the butterflies!). ~karen

Hi Sherri...
I know that I already told you how much I love your rows...but I have to tell you again!
I'm sew happy that you are enjoying the row along and to tell you the truth...I am having so much fun with it that I would love to do it every week...and if I only had the time...I would!
Thanks for your kind words...you are a dear friend:)

I just finished my butterflies. I messed up with cutting the quick corners. I was distracted but I'm not changing it.
