EQ7 Seasons Row Along Blog Hop -- Week 3

I hope you have been following the incredible blog hop the last two weeks.
Not only are there a lot of totally amazing rows with seasonal themes, there are some really crazy good prizes (sweepstakes, give-aways, gifties – there has been some discussion about the proper word for this).

For information on how to enter the contests and to see all the rows click HERE.

Here is the schedule for new rows this week.







 

 Well anyway, my row is summer and I designed a fun camping row with campers, a tent and cute critters atop the signs pointing their way to camp.
You can download the PDF pattern HERE or the EQ7 file HERE.


This is block 1 in the row.

Owl Block 1

There are 5 blocks which finished at 8” x 12”.  They are all applique blocks done with large easy pieces (mostly) which are done with fusible web and machine applique.  I have reversed all the templates for you already so when you download the PDF you will be ready to trace or print the templates onto the fusible web.

Camper Block 2

Tent Block 3

Camper Block 4

Racoon Block 5

  9. Hi Reeze, thank you sew very much for participating in the EQ Seasons Row-Along, it's been my sheer pleasure to have you be with us and I'm in awe of this row.. It's sew cute and sew adorable and I really really love it.

    Ok, so I've entered one giveaway.. my favorite quilting gadget.. sew sew hard... however, I guess my Silhouette Cameo has outbeaten the rotary cutter, because not only can I cut fabric on it, I print my patterns, I cut my templates, I print out my layouts for my applique blocks, and best of all it's not as expensive to print as using my printer is... So.. other than discovering the fabric folding pen liquid for turn edge applique... The cameo is my favorite, but I'm hopeful of having a KNK cutter at some point.. Hugs!!
