Have you visited the Row By Row Experience Blog and voted for those rows that you liked best? I love the Attic Window Quilt Shop’s row (shown above).  This row is so cute! Chris used the Creative Grid Double Strip 90° Triangle ruler and the Double Strip 45° Triangle ruler to make this darling quilt.  Make this row a winner by going to the Row By Row Experience site, click on “start here”, then click on the Michigan license plate, then on the left click where it says “visit the Michigan Row By Row Experience on Facebook."  Then scroll down until you find the link to “Row By Row Experience With Creative Grids” and click on that.  From there you are on your own because every computer is different.  You just need to be signed into Facebook and find the Attic Window row which is number 49, and click on the “like” button.  Let’s make this one a winner for Chris!!!!

ALSO:  Mark your calendar now.  The Lighthouse Quilt Guild is sponsoring the “Treasures: Past, Present, & Future” Quilt Show in Grand Haven, MI on July 25 & 26.  The doors will be open on that Friday and Saturday from 10 a.m. until 5 p.m.  Admission is $6.  There are more than 150 member quilts on display.  There will also be vendors.  In fact, the Attic Window Quilt Shop is a vendor at this show, so be sure and stop by their booth.

ANOTHER NOTE:    If you like to use your scraps you will love the patchwork tote that Sew Mama Sew has for you.
Until next time,

Stay Calm! Stay Kind! Stay Positive!
