Moda All Stars

Moda All-Star:  All in a Row Again Blog Hop

I am so excited to be a part of The Moda All Star, All In a Row Again book.  I had so much fun designing this row and hope you enjoy combining it with other rows to make your own creation.

I love all the rows and they match every designers personality.  I do have a few favorite rows in the book though.  My first favorite is Kate Spain’s Barn Cute.  I just love the whole concept of the barn quilt and think it is just the neatest thing to do.  My dad is a farmer in California and my mom and I think his barn would be perfect for a barn quilt.

Another favorite is Autumn Wind by Kathy Schmitz.  I just love the block design and those embroidered birds with the acorns are absolutely perfect.  I have just started to play around with embroidery and can only dream of being as good as Kathy.

Sandy Klop is someone who make everyone smile and she manages to do it with the Beach Houses row.  I love how she created the water and the little beach house are just so cute.  I love the beach and this row just makes me want to take a drive over the hill and walk on the sand.

So this is probably what everyone has been waiting for.   Martingale is providing one of my readers with a free E-book version of All in a Row Again.  All you need to do is let me know what your favorite type row quilt is such as nursery, holidays, seasonal etc. I will choose a winner from the comments below and announce the winner Monday November 20th.  Make sure to also visit


Also visit Laurie Simpson as she shares her row today.

Make sure to go to the All in a Row Facebook page, where they will be hosting a series of giveaways throughout the blog hop, as well as sharing everyone’s blog post (the giveaways include 10 prizes plus 3 extra-BIG prizes from Martingale and Moda!). The Facebook page link is here:

Although I super excited about being a part of this book and sharing my designs, the part I am most excited about is that this book supports such a wonderful cause.  Give Kids the World Village helps children with life-threatening illnesses enjoy weeklong, cost-free vacations with their families. Together, the designers are donating royalties from the book’s sales to benefit this charity. It's such an honor to be a part of this!

    I'd like to see rows with similar elements depicting the changes. Maybe trees or houses or barns separated by traditional squares. Pardon me if that's already bee done.

    My favorite row quilt (or any style of quilt) seems to be whatever I'm looking at at the moment - such beauties being created all the time! I need 300 years to make just some of the coolest ones! I love your darling flowers and butterflies!

    Lovely row. One could make several of them in different colourways for a really fresh quilt.
    I don't really have a favourite type of row quilt. It is whatever inspires me at that particular moment. But, any row quilt I make seems to have a theme to it. I don't tend to mix themes. kj_hahn(at)telus(dot)net

    My favorite row quilt is fall themed. I love the oranges and yellows against the darks like purple and black. For some reason I always seem to gravitate to the fall themed quilts.

    Seasonal, that way I can keep the decor fresh. Fabric is always adorned somehow in my home, whether in a hanging quilt, a table topper, oven mitt, tied on gift. I appreciate the opportunity to row along w/you and all your inspiration . The opportunity to give a child and their family the world is very special and it's cool to know so many are involved in making this come to fruition for them.
    Thankyou so much.

    i love all the rows, but would pick spring/summer as my favourite season, using many of the rows to make a quilt for the travel trailer.

    Looks like a wonderful book! My favourite would be houses and trees. Thank you for the chance to win.

    My favorite row quilt would be seasonal. A theme row quilt would also be nice.

    So sorry I missed the dead line. This is my first year with the Row by Row... & my original thought as I read one of the first blogs, was that everyone’s deadline would be the same. So I thought I had time...
    thank you for your butterflies & flowers.
    And all that you do to help us quilters have chances to win, & get Great patterns from all you Creators! Love this idea... maybe next year, I will be more wit the situation...
