Hello Friends of the QuiltBug!  We will be closed on Thursday July 4th! 
Row x Row begins Friday June 21st and the QuiltBug is particiapting.  The 2019 theme is, "Taste the Experience!"  Here's our foxy boxy 18X18 row, it's applique and designed in house at the QB!  This row celebrates the wine regions upstate NY.  Kits are available in the shop!  We can't wait to see the finished quilts!
For your information these are the Row x Row Rules:

  • Visit any participating RxR quilt shop to pick up your free RxR Taste the Experience themed row pattern. One pattern per person.
  • Each shop creates a pattern, then gives it away for one row in a row quilt.
  • Collect as many rows as you can, then mix and match your rows to create a fun and unique quilt.
  • Have fun traveling, shopping and collecting as many different patterns as you like during the RxR collecting period, June 21–September 3, 2019.
  • Have more fun making the rows and designing a quilt. Visit other participating shops all over the US, Canada and Europe to add rows to your quilt if you wish.
  • Anytime between June 21–October 31, 2019 be the first person to bring a finished (quilted, bound, labeled) quilt using at least 8 different rows from 8 different participating stores into a participating quilt shop and receive a bundle of 25 beautiful fat quarters.
  • Rowers may include the 9th Row and RxR Junior designs in a RxR quilt, but they may not be counted as one of the 8 rows needed to win a prize.
  • Include the shop’s row in your quilt and receive a bonus prize! Limit one prize per person.
