Row by Row

I suspect that you are familiar with the Row by Row H20 (water related) quilting theme that quilt shops across Canada and the USA held last year.

Row by Row is like a shop hop, but it's not... no fees, no cards to stamp, and all summer to play! Simply visit any of the participating shops and receive a free pattern for a row in a quilt. Combine your rows in any way to create a unique quilt that represents the fun you had traveling throughout the summer. Travel with friends, discover new quilt shops and have fun collecting rows!

Well, another series, Home Sweet Home has started. You can see some of the completed pieces HERE and HERE.  

Participating shops can be found HERE. Click on the license plate to see the list.

If you are traveling this summer, you might visit some of the participating shops.

So here's the first few links to check. Hope you find something interesting:

I have been busy finishing up Shimmers for the fairs next fall. Walks and taking photos are also on the agenda when the weather is suitable. Today it was hot and sunny so I was out bright and early! 

When I was a child, my grandmother had flowers like the ones below. We called them 'rockets'. I'm not sure if that's a name used for these or not.

The conditions were perfect last evening for this beautiful rainbow to appear. The sky was very dramatic. If you look carefully, you will see a second rainbow just to the right of the middle tree.

House Mural

We took a trip to Bridgewater today. That's a very nice town. Spotted this house with a large mural painted on the back and had to take a photo to share. 

I also did a search for painted murals related to quilting and found the following:
