2019 ROW BY ROW EXPERIENCE IS COMING!
JUNE 21 through SEPTEMBER 3!
This year our Row by Row is the 27” x 12” row and named “Twin Pops”. Being located here in Rockford on this beautiful farm property makes us reminiscent of family & community gatherings of our youth and the special treat of “Twin Pops”. This simple row is constructed using easy traditional piecing techniques. Incorporate it into your Row by Row Quilt as a “treat” element to your “Taste the Experience” or even display it at your summer gatherings as a runner!
Starting June 21 be sure to stop in to receive your free pattern for “Twin Pops” or even better purchase a kit & taste the experience of a Twin Pop.
Quilter’s General Store was founded in 1997 and is located in a stately 1875 farm house. The 2500 square foot farm house is decorated in a traditional country style, utilizing many primitive and rustic items that add to the charm of the shop. QGS features approximately 2000 bolts of fabric which include a selection of civil war reproduction fabrics, batiks, and hand dyed wools.
