Welcome to the 3rd Annual Row Along hosted by Seams to Be Sew. A huge Thank You to Marian Penn for organizing this event. Also, thanks to our sponsors, Northcott Fabrics and Calibre Art . Our sponsors are wonderful and we owe them a HEAP of gratitude. Read to the end of this post to find information about the Give-Aways from Northcott and Calibre.
This is your chance to download tons of free row patterns. I am just 1 of many pattern designers involved in this row-along. This year’s row-along will last for 6 weeks, ending with a “Show and Tell” day Tuesday, October 10. Starting September 5, every Tuesday and Thursday 5 (some days 4) different pattern designers will be offering a FREE row pattern. All rows will measure 30 1/2″ long, so all will consistently fit together into the quilt of your choosing.
Each row is designed with a specific Christmas carol in mind. My row was inspired by “Jolly Old St. Nick”. I love to paper piece images of Santa, and this is the perfect song. The pattern is paper pieced and is very easy to assemble. If you are new to paper piecing, I suggest you watch my free tutorial on sewing a Simple Paper Pieced Block, found on my “Tutorials” page.
Here are photos of the 4 blocks that make up my row. You can download the patterns and directions for the blocks here Jolly-Old-St.-Nick-MERGED.pdf (991 downloads) . Remember, when paper piecing, your finished block always turns out the opposite of the original pattern.
The pattern explains how to tie a “knot nose” using a scrap of muslin. So cute! My finished row shows the “Jolly Old St. Nick” row finished as a table runner with an inner and outer border. Also, consider using just the “HO HO” block for a pillow or potholder!
