I am proud to be a part of this great new book!!! A bunch of my “MODA SISTERS” have combined their talents to make this book happen. All the designer proceeds will be donated to No Kid Hungry...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! Like I said…an AWESOME book!
Here is my row in the book…Now 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…HERE
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 book…Jennifer 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!!!!!!

Love your runner!
I would have guessed that row was yours anywhere. Just love it.
I can’t wait to try some of these rows ……… a fun way to do my own BOM.
love your table runner! is there a pattern somewhere for it? thanks
So much talent packed into one book! Really cute designs. I would love to win a copy.
Sounds like an awesome book…for a great cause!
Love your row, would have picked it out anywhere. Such a neat idea and for such a good cause.
I love your row and agree it would work with a lighter background (but not as good). The next best choice for you (and me) is a star block. The runner will look great in the new house. Cannot wait for updates!
It looks like a very fun book with tons of possibilities. I love, love your row!
Yes, I’d love to win the book. Love your row—dark backgrounds are my thing for quilts and for rug hooking.
I like your row with the dark background and think a version of the quilt would be gorgeous in any of your Gathering fabrics. And adding wool makes it even better! Nice job!
What fun! New home! New quilt runner to decorate it! Fun quilt partner to explore with in the Row by Row experience. Joanna seems equally thrilled to be working with you. Always enjoy reading your posts.
Love your block! I really like dark black grounds. Hope you will post pictures of designs in your new house! Sure to be beautiful.
Your Star table runner row is perfect for your new home. Great Cause for the book proceeds.
Great book! Hope I win.
I like the fabric you chose for your row….very autumnal. Moving into a new house sounds exciting.. Hope everything goes smoothly .
That book looks like it has sooo many possibilities! Thanks for the chance to win.
It will look wonderful in her new home. May God always bless your new home
Love your runner, it will look so good in your beautiful new house! It was nice to see you and say Hi! at the Road to California quilt show. I always find patterns and wool I can’t live without in your awesome booth!
I like both of your rows, especially the pumpkins! Although stars are one of my favorite blocks to make and your version was great in that colorway. Thanks for sharing and for the chance to win.
Looks like a lot of fun making the different rows. Personally I like the dark background.
winning this book might get me started on making row quilts…I have never had interest in making them…I would rather make small quilts from the row design like you did with the beautiful table runner!
Hi Lisa, love the new rows. I checked out what happened to your row, very nice in lighter colors. I am going to follow Joanna, it is different to see light wools that are not pastel and “cutesy” Love your new runner. Is that l
Lakeside Gatherings? I hope the move can happen quickly. It gives me the urge to “do” another home. Thanks for a chance to win, whoever wins is going to be thrilled!!
What a great way to give back to others in need. Quilters are the best!! I am so excited about this book and the blog hop!
This books like a real gem! Can’t wait to have it in my collection.
Love your row also. What a sweet thing yo do for a charity as awesome as feeding the children. Any time any one helps children they are earthly Saints and you bring smile to their faces and fullness in their body. God Bless.
Looks like a great book, would love to win ! Thank you for the opportunity !!
Wouldn’t that be great if we could feed many. many hungry kids!
Looks like a fun book!
Your table runner is gorgeous. I was reading a translated post on Quilt Mania’s facebook page and it translated the French for table runner into “Table Path.” Really makes a lot more sense when you think about it. Enjoy your new home!
Love your row. Love the charity. What a great thing to do.
I love both the pumpkin runner and the new one too:)
I really like the table runner you made for your new house. How exciting. I enjoy gathering all the row by row projects during the summer. This book will make it fun all year round. Thank you.
I’m very happy for you, and your family, with all the new life moments your new home will hold : ) Your dark background block is awesome, beautiful! Thanks for the opportunity to win this wonderful new book.
What a wonderful creative life you have.
What a great row. I think it looks great on the dark background, and of course a stand alone table runner. Thanks for sharing the giveaway.
What a clever book…..I would love one. So glad you are back to posting. I know you must be super busy. I check your blog every couple days and it was so fun to see the pictures and to find info on the book. Thanks.
I love this idea of switching blocks…gives us more creative possibilities! Thank you!!!
I’m am really loving this Row blog hop. This is showing how you don’t have to make a pattern following what the designer did. Make it your own. So fun to follow along everyday and see what all the designers did with the partner’s row. Loved yours!!! My Colors!!!
Got nothing but the picture
So cool..boy..would I love to win this book..it looks great! Thanks for the chance!
I’m a new follower of your blog. Where have I been? “All in a Row” would be an awesome book to win and love that proceeds go to help children in need!

The book sounds great and I’d love to win a copy! I like your dark background. It is good to be unique.
Your row is awesome and I love dark colors, but I also loved the light colors that Joanna from Fig Tree used.

Love this blog hop. Thanks for your creativity and for sharing your skills.
I love the older colors ty for sharing the star like pinwheel was beautiful…. email@example.com
The blocks look awesome. I think I watched the row by row presentation event in a YouTube video or a Facebook page. It was nice to see the designers and their rows.
Love this blog hop. Thanks.
It would be so cool to win this book and make some of those awesome rows.
Love the blog hop, and would LOVE this book!
Would love to win the book.
Paula in KY

Can’t wait to get my own copy of this book & start “rowing”.

What a wonderful fundraiser. Your row is absolutely stunning
We are so blessed to have time and resources to sew and quilt.. good for MODA and the designers for creating another way to give back. Thank you!

Your row is perfect! My favorite things and colors!

Love your row piece, and I love your new table runner, that is beautiful.
Good luck in your new home and it is fun redecorating, something i am doing and I do need to make table toppers.
What a great idea. I’m sure the kids receiving help from the charity will be pleased and hopefully well fed.
Your row is my favorite…not surprising! Also love your table runner. Have a blast on your cruise coming up.
I love your table runner – simple & elegant! Thank you for being part of such a wonderful effort for No Kid Hungry!
I like the idea of lots of table runners. That makes the whole project just seem like more fun and then you’ll have lots of runners for decorating! Love it! I promise to buy a book and if I win one, I’ll give to my quilting sis because it is a good cause. 🙂
There is no better way to heal the world than to feed our kids.
I really like it idea of making several table runners!!!! Brilliant!! I just completed a row quilt and it turned out beautiful. It looks like there are many great possibilities for runners. I enjoyed talking with you at RD2CA on Thursday…..I bought the tiny precut tumblers!!! Will be buying the book if I don’t win.
Love the quilt rows; Nice table runner.
What a fun book and for a good cause. I love the idea for table runners. And the row fillers designed by Lissa. If I don’t win the giveaway I will add this book to my wish list. P.S. I received my new Juki from the 12 days. I love piecing on it and can’t wait to try quilting !!!

What fun blocks! thank you for the giveaway of the book!
These rows are so versatile….a long table runner doesn’t work for my space, but you showed how three blocks could be perfect ! They are beautiful as are your fabrics. I’m not buttering you up, ha ha, its the truth !! Terri
They are all so beautiful. And such a great idea and cause. No child should be hungry.
Love this row – could easily make a whole quilt with it! Or use it as a border…
Late to the Hop but catching up as quick as I can … love your row Lisa, no matter dark or light ! and a table runner too ? Do you EVER sleep ??!! Thanks for sharing and the chance to win the book … if I don’t I’ll be buying it for sure, such a good cause !
Such a wonderful cause!!! So many possibilities!
What a neat book and I LOVE the dark pumpkin row but they are ALL GOOD! You are all generous for helping this cause-no one should be hungry.
This is a wonderful cause that my group will be happy to support for sure. I love the dark background idea. Thanks for the information and links to all of the participants.
Previously I’ve never been interested in the row by row projects until now. Really like these! So many possibilities of how to use them besides a quilt.
It’s Australia Day here today, and it would be a wonderful connection with all of the wonderful and generous quilters there in the US, and especially the altruistic motives behind the book…well done!
Very pretty table runner. I love stars. Congrats on the move.
Fantastic idea to give to proceeds for the book for a well worthy cause—maybe this group should challenge other quilt designers—–
Seeing all the changes in this blog hop has been so fun. It’s making me want the book more and more.
Looks like an awesome book! Love your row!
Looks like a great book. I love your pumpkin block and the dark background.

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.

This is a beauty of a blog hop because it is a beauty of a book with gorgeous blocks! Thank you so much for yours~

I just love this blog. Would love this new book.
Oh Lisa – your row is gorgeous — such a stand out (and not because it’s the only one with the black background)! Love that it will inspire some more rows with a dark/darker background. And that runner for your table — it will be just as beautiful as the rest of your beautiful new house!
Lisa, you and your block/row would stand out in any crowd! I think black makes everything else pop!
Looks fabulous and I love the cause!!
Now I understand the reason for you in your fancy dress, wearing your row as a sash… LOL I never quite knew why before 🙂 What a great cause for the book and I would love to win a copy but if I don’t well then I’m buying it to support no kid hungry

As usual you provide inspiration and entertainment. I can’t wait to start my own version. Thanks for all you do.

Love your row! Plus your outfit was the best! So glad you will be in your new house soon. You do amazing things yourself! Thanks for sharing them with us. K-
I got a kick out of your row being the only one in the book with a dark background. Isn’t it great to stand out in a crowd? : )
Got to go now and see what Joanna did with your row.
(BTW, I love your table runner for your new home!)
Your pumpkins are so cute! Thanks for the opportunity to win the book.
The Moda girls and guys are fabulous. Clever and talented.
Amazingly amazing!!!! The only way to say it. Good luck in the production and sale of the book. Your talent never ends.
Both your rows are beautiful and I love the black background in your row in the book and the one you with Joanna’s pattern. I’m sure it’ll look great in your new house:-)
I really love the row by row quilts. Can’t wait to get my hands on a copy of the book to start a quilt of my own. And I am excited to check out all of the other blogs during the blog hop. Take care.
Looks like a great book!
Love Moda. Love row quilting. I will have to spend some money and gas if I don’t win.
