2015 Row by Row finished!

Today I turned in my quilt to Ellicott City Sew Vac in Ellicott City, MD. I didn't have their row in my quilt so I didn't win a bonus prize. All 9 shops that I went to for these rows have already had a winner so I had to take my quilt elsewhere. The reason it took so long for me to complete this quilt this year is because I spent all summer trading for row kits all over the USA that I loved but couldn't go pick up in person. The traded rows are the BACK of my quilt. The rules of the 2015 Row By Row Experience are on their website.
I posted this photo on my Susan's Quilt Creations FB page. 
I like the split photo because it shows the front and the back of the quilt together!

These 9 rows are from 9 (of the many) shops that I visited this summer. These rows are from: 
Bonny's in Stafford, VA
Lindarella's Quilt Works in Southern Pines, NC
The Crazy Cousin in Fredericksburg, VA
Traditions at the White Swan in Hagerstown, MD
Patches Quilting & Sewing in Mt Airy, MD
Cary Quilt Co in Cary, NC
Serendipity Quilt Shop in Dagsboro, DE
Studio Stitch in Greensboro, NC
Sew Original in Winston-Salem, NC

These rows are ALL swaps or trades.
Gone Quiltin' LLC in Bandera, TX 
Scruffy Quilts in San Mateo, CA
Maui Quilt Co in Kihei, HI (Thanks Earl & Katie!!)
Quilter's Paradise in Mt Pleasant, IA
Sharky's Vac & Sew in Wildwood, FL
Sweet Bee's Fabric in Charlotte, MI
Purple Frog Quilt Shop in Jefferson, OR
Susie Q's Quilts in North Fort Myers, FL

Special quilt label!

Two sided label because it's a two sided quilt.

Love the button eyed fish and the Kaffe Fassett crabs!

Special license plate designed for our FB swap group!

Stanley didn't have a plate for his shop so I used the above plate for him.

This shark always makes me smile.

Ah Honeymooning in Hawaii!!

Silly geckos.

More silly frogs with smiles!

And more frogs.

Kaffe Fasset fish.

Cabanas under the palm tree. Ahhh

Cute weeping willow and stone wall.

Crazy ducks.

Singing daisies.

The blue spider is watching the swan.

This quilt was SO much FUN to make!!
Thanks to all who helped to make it possible by trading, swapping, purchasing, road tripping etc.

Linking to Finish it Friday.


  1. How do I get the I survived plate? I love it! Thank you.

  2. What a great quilt - loved looking at all the animals - were they all appliqued onto the fabric? I don't know much about these 'row by row' quilts and I was assuming they were printed panels that you collected from the quilt shops and then sewed them all together - guess I was wrong :)

  3. Wow, there is a lot going on in this quilt, the swaps, the hop, the back , the front - it is amazing!
