June Events @ Cut Up & Quilt!

June is Busy, Busy, Busy... 

We are in the midst of a very successful 2017 All Iowa Shop Hop! We just love the enthusiasm you bring as you visit our shop. The Southwest Regional Challenge has added excitement and we've seen some great finished quilts already.  If you are the first to bring your quilt to a shop, you win a $25 gift card to that shop. Diane Peaslee was the first to show us her finished quilt, but there are six other stores waiting for their challenge winner!

Bettie Siggins didn't know we had a winner yet so she brought her quilt in the very same day.  Bettie alternated her center blocks with the black and white Iowa fabric.  Look how different your quilts can look by changing your border fabric.  We encouraged her to go on to another shop to claim her prize.

If you don't follow what we're talking about, check out our SW Regional Challenge.  We are the only region doing this so don't get confused as you travel throughout the state.

 Row by Row On-The-Go

Beginning June 21, 2017, 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 to the stores. Travel with friends, discover new quilt shops and have fun collecting rows!

Sally Dea is the winner of our Row by Row Contest.  We used her design as inspiration for our final row.    We've got our row kitted up so you can grab and go!  Now, get ready to start your engines and get yourself to go on the go!

Don't forget to collect your license plate!

Create a quilt using at least 8 different 2017 rows from 8 different 2017 participating RxR shops and be the first to bring it into a participating shop to win a stack of 25 fat quarters (6-1/4 yards of fabric!). Use our shop’s row in your quilt and win a bonus prize! Click here for more details. 
Note: you may use rows from previous years and even Row by Row Junior patterns in your quilt, but none of these may be counted as any of the eight needed to win a prize.

Details for how it all works can be found on the Row by Row Experience and Row by Row Studio websites.  Follow the Iowa Row by Row facebook page  and of course, our very own CUAQ facebook page for news along the way.  

New:  Row by Row Junior

This summer kids get to participate in the Row by Row Experience’s brand new program, Row by Row Junior.  It’s designed for kids ages 6 to 14.  They travel along with an adult, collect free row patterns designed just for them to make, and learn to sew with family help and support from

Row by Row Junior follows the same time schedule, June 21 through Labor Day. It has the same basic guidelines for registered brick and mortar quilt shops.  Like adult Row by Row, children need to be present in the shop to get the free pattern handout.

Jade has been working on the Row by Row Junior samples.
