Row By Row Patterns

It’s been three years now since I started maintaining this list of sites that offer free patterns. I will try to keep it updated, but I can’t do it without your help either. You are the reason this page exists if it weren’t for you letting me know what’s available and what isn’t, whether links are working or not or new patterns show up or taken away. Please keep it up, and when you do, I will share those links also. Thank you so much for your kind and generous nature to share, I was only too glad to add the links to the previous page.

The Row By Row Experience, is an event that is a little slice of heaven, the idea is that you visit a shop, ask for a pattern, or possibly purchase a kit, license plate or pin, create a quilt out of 8 different shops rows, then turn that quilt in for a nice prize of fat quarters and if you use the winning shops row, you get a bonus prize also. For those of us who can’t make it to every shop in the nation, it’s much appreciated at the time the event is over that some shops will offer their patterns either for Free of a small price so that we may order them. Some buy kits, others just want patterns. I like patterns, for this event because I have fabric, I see no need to buy kits. It’s really based on your preference, if your trying to win quickly, a kit is a good idea as the fabric is usually cut to size for what you need to create the row quickly.

Please contact me or leave a comment if you know of any other rows available to download. If you encounter an error, I’d also appreciate knowing. I do try to fix the broken links or note that the pattern is currently not available.

If you download a row from one of these shops, take a few moments, and either visit their Facebook page or send them an email with a thank you. They do not have to provide these patterns free to us, they also do it out of the kindness of their hearts. Please say Thank you.

Row By Row has added a showcase site for the rows this year, wouldn’t it be great if they did this for previous years rows. Many of the wonderful rows also link to the shops online where you might be able to purchase their patterns.  I have updated the few shops below that have already added there 2017 patterns. I will be checking over the next month or so also for the rest of the shops to update the links below. 

Thank You and Enjoy


I am in no way affiliated with the Row By Row Experience. I’m just a fan of this event as I love the idea that we get to support our local shops. The logos have been approved for use on this blog by Janet Lutz founder of the Row By Row Experience.

This page is provided thru the kindness of shop owners who’ve given permission for me to link to them, and commenters who let me know shops providing free patterns.

  1. Best Sewing Deals, when you right click on row by row you get an htm of two store, not 2016 row by row (even after you ‘like’ and ‘share”)

  2. Hi Marian, Thanks so much for putting these in a central location that quilters can find. I know it is a lot of work. With all your other quilting, bless you for making time.
    I will pass the word to my quilting friends.
    Lastly, not sure you are aware, the 2014 theme was “4 Seasons” the 2013 theme was “Fair & Festivals” and 2012 was “I Love NY” and was only in NY state.
    Keep up the great work. You are very creative.

    1. WoW Cool, thank you, for letting me know the themes they have not been easy to find. Row by Row didn’t even celebrate its 5th year at doing this event, which was kind of disappointing, but I love knowing all the themes and will fix my page to reflect that. Thank you so much.

  3. Marian, I really appreciate all of your hard work put into organizing all of the RxR patterns like this, you are awesome!

  4. Thank you so much for making this information available to us. So much fun to see the creative projects produced by talented quilters.

  5. Thank you so much for going to all of this work for us who can’t get to these shops. I really appreciate what you have done.
