Welcome to our Row by Row Quilt Along!

How exciting that a nation of quilters can participate in a biweekly Row by Row Party!

How this works:

Starting February 18th, every 2nd Tuesday morning a new set of instructions for a row will be posted here. There will also be a post on social media (Facebook and Instagram) reminding you to download your new set of instructions.

Instructions will only be on the website for 4 weeks and then they will be removed, so make sure you download each week.

18-Feb – Row 1
03-Mar – Row 2
17-Mar – Row 3
31-Mar – Row 4
14-Apr – Row 5
28-Apr – Row 6
12-May – Row 7
26-May – Row 8
09-Jun – Row 9

There is a facebook group for those participating called ‘52 Blocks 52 Weeks’ if you want to join that and share your rows and see what others are creating.


The blocks themselves can be prints, solids or a combination. It is a great stash buster or a fun time to use up some unique prints.

Each row will be written up using the same 5 colours to demonstrate.

Fabric yardage for only these 5 colours is:

Border and sashing 1.5 yards (1.4 metres)

Fabric #1 and #2  – 2 yards each (1.8 metres)

Fabric #3, #4, #5 – 1 ¼ yards each (1.2 metres)

If you’re going to post your row, and we encourage you to do so, please use the hashtag #cqarowbyrow. This is great for Instagram to allow quilters to search for other quilters doing the row challenge with us. Then we can see what everyone is creating!


You can arrange it anyway you want, but if looking for a finished size, with no border or sashing, the quilt would be 60” x 80”.

For a quilt with a border  and sashing the size would be 64” x 92”.

If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to email at socialmedia@canadianquilter.com
