Row by Row Experience 2016 the start of something new.

Row by Row Experience this year is called Home Sweet Home and what better place to get my first row this year than the quilt shop that started it all for me.  The Cloth Shop in Vancouver on Granville Island.  Check out the left side of this picture and you can see their interpretation of the Lion's Gate Bridge stretching from Stanley Park to West Vancouver.
 Of course I got their licence plate and their row kit.
 My local shop The Needle and I is just up the hill from me in Burnaby and here is their license plate.
 Here is their row, I forgot to take a picture of it in the shop.

This past weekend I went to a couple of local shops and picked up a few more patterns from The Quilted Bear in Ladner.
 Both locations of Fabricana have a pattern featuring the Dogwood our provincial flower. Richmond has the bees up front.
 Coquitlam has the flowers.
 I also drove out Laura's Fashion Fabrics in White Rock and they have a night and day version of their Sandcastle vertical row.
 Love this license plate.
They also had a completed quilt on display.

Along with the list of shops and placements of the rows on the quilt.  I love how they added a bit to the two vertical rows and the top row to make it a bit less blocky.

 Coming home from the retreat in early June I snagged this licence from Aunt Mary's Quilt Shop in Smokey Point/Arlington.  I hope to get down and pick up their row now that it is available.
 At Bear Paw Quilting in Coeur d'Alene I got their two license plates, last year and this year but too early for their row.
Tomorrow I'm heading off to collect some more, stay tuned!

Those are wonderful rows and fun designs.
It looks like you are getting quite the license plate collection.

Your local rows are all darling! There isn't a one of them I wouldn't love to have, especially the bear, because it fits with some others I'm going to do, and the castle, and then the bees because I'm doing a bees quilt. The license plates are so creative, too! Lucky you!
