I am so glad to have a passion for quilting!
While I was putting together my last post... I
was amazed at how much I was able to accomplish this year...
and more importantly, I realized just how much quilting makes me happy every
I not only enjoy the creative part... when I fall to sleep thinking about the
next project... and skip into the sewing room in the wee hours of the morning...
but also the social media aspect.
The quilting community (that includes you) is so sweet and fun.
The fabric companies, the thread industry, along with the publishers
are all positive and genuinely kind people.
I appreciate that so much!
I am excited to see what 2016 will bring!
Although I am still working on my
project list for next month... so I can stay on track a little better...
I wanted to share this incredible book with you.
All In A Row by Lissa Alexander
I have gone through this book... cover to cover.
If you haven't had a chance to get your hands on a copy...
See all those happy Moda girls...
they all had a part in the making of this delightful book.
What you will find is designer originals, skill building techniques, and they also
share row options, There are 24 rows in all!
(all photos are by Brent Kane for Martingale Publishing)
All In A Row is divided into 3 sections: Classic patchwork, whimsical and seasonal.
It's full of ideas on how to make your quilt... or quilts, personal.
One row or several.
There are a multitude of possibilities!
This one below with the sand pails is one of my favorites...
I already have ideas for it!
The designers royalties from the sales of each book
will be donated to No Kid Hungry.
The organization provides breakfasts for school children in the United States.
See what I mean... it's about community.
I really do love this book.
My local quilt shop is going to start a
All In A Row club starting up in January.
I'm sure the same will happen somewhere here in blogville too!
I will be back tomorrow when I get my list for January finished!
