2014 License Plate Quilt

2014 License Plate Quilt

35" x 58"
These are the 34 participating states plus one Canadian province in the

I collected one from each state either by:
1. going into the store
2. calling the store on the phone
3. buying at the online store
4. trading with out of state friends
5. having my sweet relatives get them for me
6. the "ROW X ROW GAL" plate was purchased on eBay

I personally went to shops in North Carolina, Virginia, Maryland, Delaware, Pennsylvania, New York and Ontario.

Suzzie's Quilt Shop was the first shop I visited on July 1st when the row by row began.

Most of the fabrics in the quilt were purchased this summer at various shops while I was collecting free row patterns and purchasing the license plates.

Thank you to all my friends and relatives that did some extra driving to visit some amazing quilt shops this summer and help me collect patterns and plates. I've been having so much fun sewing the rows together. Rumor has it that next summer all 50 states will be participating in the Row by Row!

The back of the quilt has a large version of the 
"Polkadot Garden" by the Cloth & Bobbin, Narberth, PA.

This quilt is an original design. The houses and trees are foundation pieced.
It can be made in different sizes really easily.

I'm thinking about writing the pattern and selling it on Etsy.... Stay tuned.
