Welcome to Day #11 of the Moda All Stars All in a Row Blog Hop. I am so proud to be part of this talented group of women who have donated their time to create unique rows for this book with all proceeds donated to No Kid Hungry. Each day of the Hop, two designers have been swapping rows to put their own twist on the other designer's row. Kaari Meng of French General and I are posting a version of each other's rows today. I LOVE her Drunkard's Path variation, but not so crazy about the curved piecing. What to do? Layered Patchwork! I used her template to create the quarter circles, then simply stitched them on top of the red squares for a super easy version of this delightful row.
Here's a list of all the previous Blog Hoppers so you won't miss a thing:

My part in the Beauty Contest? A nutty fall princess, complete with acorn/leaf tiara, fall feather boa and my acorn/leaf row as a sash. So chic! (FYI - I was looking down at the floor because a previous beauty contestant fell over a cord. Trying not to look like the queen of klutz!)
In addition, I'll be giving away a copy of the All in a Row book right here next week on my regular Monday blog post. Any comment enters you in my giveaway!
