I’m absolutely thrilled to be able to share quilty insights with you today for the Moda All-Stars All In A Row: 24 Row-by-Row Quilt Designs, Giveaways, Blog Hop and Quilt A Long.
Discover the mix-and-match possibilities for fabulous quilts with row patterns by your favorite Moda designers, including Lissa Alexander of Moda Lissa, Lynne Hagmeier of Kansas Troubles Quilters, Camille Roskelley of Thimbleblossoms, Edyta Sitar of Laundry Basket Quilts, Pat Sloan, and many more.
- 24 row designs in three appealing categories: Classic Patchwork (tried-and-true favorites), Well Seasoned (fresh quilts for every season), and A Bit of Whimsy (playful, carefree designs)
- Perfect for a row-robin quilt-along with your friends, the rows can be put together in many different combinations
- Includes step-by-step instructions and illustrations, plus a quilt gallery that provides inspiration for various combinations and using stand-alone rows
Don’t forget, while Martingale rarely needs to issue a correction to any of their books, if there are such, you can find the information on their website. For this book, there is a minor cutting correction for the Twinkle design.
First, I’ll confess I love Row Quilts, often called “skinny quilts” as row quilts can also be used to make table runners, wallhangings and much more by simply making only one or two rows, or you can make enough rows to complete a quilt. And the various Rows often have a theme, and there “blender” rows can also be incorporated to provide a nice visual separation between the rows, adding more interest to the overall quilt design.
This is the first book that I’ve seen packed with beautiful row designs (24) that you can pick your favorite to create a stunning quilt that is uniquely yours.
Rows range in height (6″, 8 5/8, 9″, 9 1/2″ 10″), but are all 48″ finished. And all of the ROW patterns come with easy to follow instructions that include great visuals. There is also an inspirational gallery section that shares photos of projects made from designs in this delightful book.
I am confident this quilt is going to help quilters of all levels have fun creating beautiful quilts. It would also be perfect for a quilt guild challenge, or friendship group that wants to consider a round robin type of event (e.g. each round adds another row to a quilt top, before it is passed to the next quilter).
I hope you get a chance to check out this book at your favorite quilt shop, but don’t forget if they don’t have it you can let them know you’d like them to carry it as it is so new they may not have even heard about it. Of course, you can also check it out online at Martingale, as well as Amazon. And those that follow along the blog hop this month, will definitely learn more about this book.
DID I MENTION A CHARITY FUNDRAISER?
All of the royalties from the sale of this book will be donated to No Kid Hungry a charitable organization dedicated to ending childhood hunber.
DID I MENTION A QUILT ALONG/CHALLENGE?
Moda and Martingale are hosting a Quilt Along/Challenge where you could win lots of books and fabric. Simply buy the book, make a row (or enough to make a quilt) and share a photo of your project on any social media tool using hashtag #allinarowquiltalong
DID I MENTION A GIVEAWAY?
For those that follow along the blog hop for this book in January, you’ll find all sorts of giveaway opportunities to win books and fabric. QuiltShopGal is also hosting a giveaway where one lucky follower, anyplace in the world, will win a copy of this book. To enter, use the Rafflecopter Form below where you can claim one or more entries, keeping in mind it really only takes one entry to win, but as there are those that like to increase their odds, I’ve included a variety of options to enter.
I also want to recognize and thank Elizabeth (Libby) Hemming, as a Postage Angel who has donated money to help supplement postage expenses for prizes that QuiltShopGal needs to ship directly to winners in 2016. Thanks to Libby for covering 100% of the shipment of this prize to an US winner. I also want to clarify, Postage Angels are still eligible to enter any giveaway/contest hosted by QuiltShopGal and have the same odds of randomly being selected to win, as non-Postage Angel participants.
I do want to clarify, as announced earlier this year, due to continuing postage rate increases, International winners will not receive free shipping in 2016. If they wish to enter a giveaway and claim their prize they will need to donate $20 US, as a Postage Angel. If actual postage is greater QuiltShopGal will pay the difference and if it is less, the extra funds will go into a postage expense account, to help supplement expenses for future shipping of prizes. Sadly, the US Post Office just raised rates 5% AGAIN this week.
