Seaside Adventure Week 1

I'm so excited to kick off the first week of our Seaside Adventure Row Along.  Each week three designers will be sharing a free pattern.  The patterns will only be free the week that they debut after the first week the designers may charge for the pattern. So you will want to check back every Monday to get the next set of blocks. 

This post may contain affiliate links.  Purchasing items from the links cost you nothing more and adds a few pennies to the fabric budget.

This week we are hopping over to visit Kissed Quilts, Made by Marney, and Bobbin in Quilts. These ladies have done a wonderful job designing blocks for the row along. 

Marlene at Kissed Quilts made a pixelated seagull. Her block finishes at 30x30 in a quilt. It would also make a great wall hanging by itself. If you make her block please tag her on Instagram @marlene.kissedquilts and use the hashtag #kissedquilts.

Mary at Made by Marney made the cutest sea turtle row. If you make her block please tag her on Instagram @madebymarney and use the hashtag #madebymarneypattern

Becky at Bobbin in Quilts made a lighthouse scene. Her row finishes at 24x13. This row would make a wonderful coffee table centerpiece. I can just picture it on a wicker table on an enclosed porch overlooking a beach. If you make the block please tag her on Instagram @bobbininquilts and use the hashtag #bobbininquilts

Don't forget to share your favorite posts with your friends so they can get the patterns too! Just don't share the pattern itself, the designers who opted into this blog hop are doing it as a fun way to remember Marian who started the row along.  Sharing their patterns isn't just tacky it's also illegal, they are copyrighted.  So please send your friends to the post to get the pattern. 

It is also m birthday month Over the years my readers have been so sweet to send me little gifts and while I do appreciate the gesture I would rather share my love of reading with kids.  I would love it if you would purchase a book off of my Amazon Wishlist, it will automatically be sent to the elementary school I work at for their library. 

If you want to make sure you don't miss any of the rows this year be sure to sign up for the row along mailing list to get an email every Monday morning.  You can sign up by clicking this link.

You can also pin the image below so you can come back later to this post.
