EQ Seasons Row Along

EQ Seasons Row Along

Today is the start of week 6 and the last week for the EQ Seasons Row-A-Long.

It’s been a HUGE pleasure to host this Row-A-Long on my blog. I’ve had the ability to get to know many of the participating bloggers in a way that I never anticipated, they’ve become friends, and I’m proud to know them. They truly deserve all the credit for making this a successful event.

I wish to thank all of you who’ve commented, who’ve sent emails, those of you who have really let us know you’ve enjoyed this event.

I also wish to thank the sponsors, each of whom contributed freely and were generous with their response. You helped make this event a huge success.

The above was my original pattern, but it’s not the pattern I am releasing.

I really love cornucopia’s, and I felt that my cornucopia got lost in the middle somewhere. So I redesigned this row last month… 

This is the row I am releasing today:

Oh Holy Night BOTW – Weeks 5 and 6 Now Online…

2015 Nativity

The angel, star, and cows have been released this week. I appreciate that ya’ll allowed me the extra time to get these out to you. I know it’s got to be frustrating to be waiting for them. EQ Seasons has just totally taken my time tho and having to recreate all the pictures is just been very time consuming. So I’m releasing these patterns today as just that, patterns, no tutorial or anything to go with them.

I will note I will do the tutorial later during the release of other blocks.

Elm Street Quilts

Over At Elm Street Quilts, Patty has started what looks to be a fun Quilt Along that she is simply calling Harvest QAL.

It looks so much fun and I so wish I had the time for it, but alas, I’m swamped for a bit.. 

I thought I’d tell you about it tho, it looks really fun and if your looking for something that looks quick to put together and easy to piece, this looks like an adorable Fall project that will surely make your wall a happy camper.

Go On over to Elm Street Quilts and see what Patty does next..

EQ Seasons – Schedule and Participants

EQ Seasons Row Along

EQ Seasons Row AlongI can hardly believe we are less than a week away for the start of EQ Seasons Row-A-Long.

It has come to fast for me.

As summer starts to pass us by and fall enters the picture, it seems like a perfect time to start a new project.

Today I’m going to list the participants week by week for you, thus we’ll have an official schedule of each bloggers featured day.

Each season of this Row Along is represented each week. Each blogger will offer her row pattern in a pdf file for free during the period in which the Row Along runs. Whether they leave it free or not is up to them after the Row Along ends. Some bloggers will also offer .pj7 files for Electric Quilt. I recommend if you have an opportunity, download both the pdf and the pj7, if you open the pattern in EQ at some point you’ll also have the pdf to help you with the instructions.

Each blogger will also offer various giveaways that are specific to their site, but also will be the same for the other blogs. My posts each week will note which giveaways are site specific, and which are giveaways in which all blogs offer the same giveaway.

Their is no need to sign up, just come and visit on each Tuesday in September, and the first and second Tuesdays in October.  All giveaways will end by October 13, 2015 and winners announced within 48 hours of final deadline.

If you are creating blocks and rows for your own row quilt from the patterns for EQ Seasons RAL, please consider joining the Flickr and Facebook Support Group. There are drawings for giveaways when you upload your blocks and/or rows to the Flickr Group.
