Row by Row 2019:
Taste the Experience

starts June 21, 2019!

Blue Bar Quilts is participating in Row by Row and this year’s theme is food!

Our 2019 row and license plate are BBQ themed which seemed like a natural for us since those are our initials!

Row by Row Experience is for avid quilters and sewers who love to travel and love to add the next new quilt to their collection. Anyone can participate!

Collect free patterns for themed rows from participating shops all over the US, Canada & Europe. Use 8 of your collected patterns to create a quilt, and be the FIRST person to bring a completed quilt to a participating shop any time before October 31, 2019 to win a bundle of 25 fat quarters.

If one of the rows used in the quilt was designed by the shop where the quilt is turned in, the maker will also receive a bonus prize chosen by that location, and Blue Bar Quilts will be awarding a $25 gift certificate. Shops will be distributing their free patterns from June 21 - September 4, 2019.

Our fabric license plates are on sale now for $5.99. We hope you will join in the fun!

The Longest Day

Please join us again this year in supporting the Alzheimer’s Association’s THE LONGEST DAY

Now through June 21 (the longest day of the year), we are collecting donations for the Alzheimer’s Association’s THE LONGEST DAY fundraising event. When you make a purchase in the shop you will be given the opportunity to add a donation of $1 or more to your total purchase. We hope you will help us reach our fundraising goal of $500!

So many of us are touched in one way or another by Alzheimer’s. We want to contribute to the fight to end this debilitating disease.

More information about the Alzheimer’s Association and THE LONGEST DAY can be found at the South Central Wisconsin Chapter of the Alzheimer’s Foundation:

Make Your Mark, Get Set, Sashiko!

Instructor: Maday Delgado

Thursday, June 20

Create your own hand-marked sashiko stitching design using templates and simple tools to embellish whole cloth quilts, home decor pieces and clothing. We will combine templates to personalize your design. The basic running stitch of sashiko (traditional Japanese hand embroidery technique), is sure to delight in it's repetitive and meditative quality. Learning this technique makes it possible to use any fabric to add your mark and customize your sewing projects.
