JUNE 21 – SEPTEMBER 8, 2020

 

 We are certain that all of you remember the fun of past years’ Row by Row event. Well it has been changed up a bit. It is now Quilters Trek!

 

The theme for 2020 is “True Blue”.

 

This is our Quiters Trek Block

 

The block is an 18-inch finished block that fits the requirements for the Quilters Trek quilt. Patterns are available only by visiting in person the participating Shops. We also have available fabric kits for purchase. These kits include fabric, pattern, & a specially designed fabric token (limited number of tokens available). Please note that kits are also available for curbside pickup or shipment when ordered via by phone, email, or Facebook message.

 

The Quilters Trek Quilt Challenge is also on for 2020. Trekkers may create a quilt using a minimum of 32 9-inch blocks (ours qualifies as 4 blocks) designs from at least 8 participating QTrek Shops. The first 2 Trekkers to bring a completed (quilted, bound, labeled) quilt to a participating Shop between July 15 and October 15 will receive 15 fat quarters. A bonus prize will be awarded if the quilt contains the Shop’s block!

 

So Let’s Get Trekking!
