Free Block of the Month from Debby Kratovil Quilts

This is a free block of the month, but Debby requires that you sign up by email or follow her on bloglovin' to be able to receive a notice that the next block is available.

 Debby designed this quilt as a Block of the Month program for Intown Quilters (Atlanta, Georgia) in 2006. It also appeared in Quilt Magazine in the November/December 2006 issue. Now you can enjoy the beauty of this quilt for yourself, making it in the colors of your choice! And it's FREE!

Row by Row Quilts

I have been spending lots of time browsing through Pinterest, Google and other places looking at Row by Row quilts!

I am wishing I had a place to do some sewing. Hopefully, my sewing machines will be out of storage and in a home soon and I can start working on a project!

In the meantime, I will continue to drool and 'Pin' some beautiful quilts.

Want to look for yourself? Here is a good place to start: Cathy Buel's Row x Row board.

If you are really into Row by Row quilts, here is a great place to get started. They even have a free pattern!!! Visit Row by Row Experience!

I also discovered a new Riley Blake line. I love this line of fabric. It would make some awesome Row by Row quilts!!!

Free Pattern

A friend has steered me towards Row by Row quilts. What fun! I have not worked on one, yet, simply because everyone of my sewing machines and all of my supplies are in storage.

Hopefully, I will have access to my 'stuff' soon!

In the meantime, as I was browsing and looking at Row by Row quilts and patterns, I ran across a cute free pattern for a rooster mug rug here on the WestMichQuilter Blog.
