Join Shellie Gum as she guides each student in creating an Underground Railroad quilt sampler we call The Journey. You may use your row as the foundation of your very own Underground Railroad quilt, to make pillows, a wall hanging or table runner. The Journey is Ragtime Fabric's 2017 Row By Row pattern. The Row by Row Experience™, a 'shop hop', began in 2011 with 20 quilt shops across New York State. Today thousands of stores across the US, Canada and Europe welcome travelers through their doors. We will discuss the shop hop and the travel fun it provides.Also, the quilts created with those rows are stunning… and no two are alike!

Instructor: In the 1990's, Shellie Gum discovered quilting and has been quilting ever since! She leans towards modern quilting using jewel tones and batiks. She has many quilts started and can't seem to get enough. Shellie owns a long-arm quilting machine, the Baby Lock Crown Jewel on a Momentum frame, and she loves using it!

Suggested Reading: Quilt In A Day-Underground Railroad Sampler, Eleanor Burns and Sue Bouchard.
