Your row is so pretty. Love to see what all the designers are doing and will be making a row quilt. Need to get my book.

I just love pumpkins – so of course – love your row!!

Please contact me at:    with your full name and physical address and we will send your book out!!!

All In a Row… A Beauty of a Blog Hop!!!



























I am proud to be a part of this great new book!!! A bunch of my “MODA SISTERS” images-1have combined their talents to make this book happen.  All the designer proceeds will be donated to No Kid Hungrynkh_logo_v3...I can’t think of a better charity…or a better reason to buy a another quilting book!!!   To purchase the book click HERE.

But wait… there are other reasons to WANT this book…beside the fact that is it really beautiful, lots of pictures…lots of designer info…it can be used for endless possibilities….obviously you can make a row quilt…but I think they can be made into endless table runners!  There are a ton of options in this book with the designer rows and then the Lissa Alexander has done a bunch of filler rows to go between the rows that could make a quilt by themselves!  imagesLike I said…an AWESOME book!

Here is my row in the book…10-November-quilt-designed-by-Lisa-Bongean-of-Primitive-GatheringsNow if I would have known mine would have been the only dark row in the book I wouldn’t have made it a black background, but…there is no reason the backgrounds in the other rows can’t be switched to make rows with colorful dark backgrounds with lights as the main part of the blocks…or this would be fine with a lighter background too.

For more fun we were asked to do another designers row, using our fabrics or a spin on it..I was partnered with Joanna from Fig Tree, who I have so much fun with at dancing at the Moda parties with!!!..I was leaving for CA for a two week trip and this was the last thing I had to do before packing as the this will hop was happening while I’m traveling…I had so much fun making Joanna’s row that I even took the time to totally finish it all! We were told we could do a block…or whatever we could fit in our schedules…even just digitially make one…well, that’s no fun!!!! So here is Joanna’s row…very pretty, I might say…Jump on over to Figgy’s blog to see what she did with my row…HERE23-We-Are-Family-quilt-designed-by-Joanna-Figueroa-of-Fig-Tree-and-Company




I am soon (but not soon enough) going to be moving into a new house… so what better reason to make a little table runner?  I pulled some fabric that fit into the scheme of the whole house and this is what happened…

I just LOVE it! and can’t wait to decorate the new house with it!!!

I also want to sincerely THANK the two women who were behind the making of this Unknownbook…Jeimages-3nnifer Keltner of Martingale books and Lissa Alexander from Moda.  I am totally in “AWE” of what these two bring to the quilting world…their creativity, leadership and wit…make you want to be in their presence for hours on end…I love being around them and wish I was able to work with them everyday!!! They make it so fun…I’m sure by now you have heard of the “beauty pageant” at Quilt Market…let me just say it was a a bunch of belly laughs and lots of beautiful rows!!!!!!P1040225
