All In A Row: book review

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
single day!
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...
you can find it at Martingale Publishers and also at Amazon.


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.


Big hearts!
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!
Decisions, decisions!

I've ordered my book mid-december from bookdepository but it's still on the way and I so hoped it would arrive this year ... now I hope it'll be the first thing in my mailbox next year;-)
Wishing you a great and wonderful and amazing 2016!!!

I'm so happy you shared this since I somehow missed that it was happening. What a great chance to own a little piece from several bloggers/designers I follow! Happy new year to you.
