All in a Row Again



I'm so pleased to be included in the second edition of Martingale's All in a Row Again book. It's always fun to see what the other Moda designers dream up for their rows and how they all seem to work together. A warm "Thank You" to Lissa Alexander of Moda for gathering all the creative minds and making the filler rows that offer unlimited possibilities. 


Be sure to visit Martingale's All in a Row Again Facebook page for great giveaways from all the participating Moda designers November 13 thru 24th, plus even more fantastic prizes from Moda and Martingale.

My row, Garden Time, features easy 9-patch flowers & a checkerboard border, our KT Diamond template for applique leaves, and a delightful watering can based on a vintage water can perched on my front porch. Choose your palette and color your garden to suit your home decor.



I'm still working on rows from the first book, All in a Row, but have found a few favorites in this book that will blend in beautifully! (Obviously I didn't rush to finish the first quilt because I knew I needed a few rows from this one. ; )  I love the nature-inspired theme of many of the rows, especially Kathy Schmitz' Autumn Wind that features a little applique along with piecing. I'm addicted to decorating with anything acorns or birds, and this has both! Who could resist?



Betsy's Stars and Geese row mixes two of my favorite pieced blocks in an unexpected way. I'm partial to "the dark side" of fabric and love her Civil War prints that are made for these traditional blocks.


Lisa makes her Tricolor Stars shine in just two colors. After following/making her blocks in our Moda Blockheads 48-week series, I appreciate her simply perfect take on this classic star. Maybe I'll try my row in a scrappy version. Which rows will you choose?


 Comment here to win an eBook version of All in a Row Again from Martingale. Do you make row quilts? How do you choose your rows - based on a theme, color, difficulty level? Winner chosen

  18. I have the first Moda row book, and I haven't made a quilt from it yet. But my daughter and I might each make a quilt using our own choices of rows and see how different they come out. I think we need the second volume to give us even more selections (or to confuse us even more)!

    ReplyDelete
  19. I haven't made a row quilt yet but I do have the first book. I don't know that there would be any rhyme or reason for choosing a row - just whatever strikes my fancy at the time!
