After getting home from my adventure this evening, my goal was to finish 1 row. I decide to tackle the rows in the order of the shops I went to. So here goes Row 1... Oh, and I also decide to tell you a little about each store I visited every day.
I was officially the first Rower of 2016 at Stitch N' Sew in Mt Pleasant, SC. The store owner was just inside at opening time and greeted me with a smile. The store is tucked under some trees and you would almost miss it if it wasn't for its bright color and sign.
The store has a nice selection of kits, accessories and fabric. There is something tucked in every corner. Definitely a place you can find a project at.
As for the row, I thought it was probably the simplest of them all. It is just basic rectangles sewn into blocks. I actually kind of thought it was simple until as I checked out I was told one of the ladies from the store did the artwork. Yes, drew it themselves. At that moment, I put a little more thought into the row and fell in love! I was honestly wanting someone to do the rainbow row house when I thought of the theme, but these weren't colored. Then I thought, the colors of the fabric were!! The row then came together for me and I appreciated it more.
The only thing I did not like about this row kit was the printed fabric. It was printed on a Dritz printable muslin. The artwork was awesome. Getting the backing off was not easy. The instructions said if it was difficult to soak it. But then I couldn't finish my block tonight. I ended up getting a little hole going and used a butter knife to slowly get under it to peel its. This took forever to get it all the backing off.
Once the back was off it only took a few minutes to finish the block. I love how it turned out!!
And here is the license plate.
