All in a Row...Again

Martingale and the Moda designers have done it again!  When we collaborated on All in a Row it was so much fun we had to do it .... again! (get it?  All in a Row Again...)


I am so honored to be a part of this lovely book.  This book is supporting a wonderful charity.


Give Kids the World Village helps children with life-threatening illnesses enjoy weeklong, cost-free vacations with their families. Together, the designers are donating royalties from the book’s sales to benefit this charity.




The book is broken down into four themes - Flowers and Trees, Buildings and Houses, Critters and Creatures, and Classic Patchwork.  I jumped on the Critters and Creatures theme : ) By combining my love of embroidery and simple patchwork I created  a row I call Autumn Wind.  I hope you enjoy it as much as I did stitching it up!


This book is filled with so many wonderful rows.  One of my favorites is Midnight in the Woods by Alma Allen or Blackbird Design.  The owls and against the full moon and the dark background really make this row come to life.  I can almost hear the owls on a dark autumn night.


Another fun row is Sandy Klop's Beach Houses.  I LOVE the beach!  I want to step in this row Sandy created.  I can almost feel the ocean breeze on a hot summer day.


Jen Kingwell's row, called Pollen , is full of quirky little blooms which are right up my alley.  Anything quirky and off kilter speaks to me.  I love her choices.  There is something soft and springy about them.  I think I smell a spring garden!

Martingale would love to give one of you an  Ebook!  For your chance to win a copy of this new book leave a comment with the theme you like best.  I will draw a winner, at random, on November 20th at 9am pacific time.  Good luck!
Thank you all for the comments!  The winner is Kim and I have sent her a congratulatory email.

This fun filled blog hop continues through November 24.  I am sharing today with my dear friend Deb Strain whooooo designed a darling row of owls called What a Hoot! Check out her post HERE.



Here is a schedule of all of the other friends and participants of this book and blog hop -

I am more of a Traditional quilter so "Classic Patchwork" jumps out at me.. but I have always loved house quilts, so they would be a very close second.

Many of the rows that I like, including yours, are in Critters and Creatures. However I like rows in other categories too, so this book is such a bargain! The rows coordinate well with volume 1 also, which I have.
