All in a Row Again Blog Hop

Hello and happy Wednesday!  Welcome to my stop on the Moda All-Stars All in a Row Again blog hop! I loved the first All in a Row book and was delighted to be able to create a row for this publication!  We had a fun "fashion" show with our rows and Quilt Market this fall that was quite entertaining (those Martingale ladies sure know how to present a great Schoolhouse session)!



There are a lot of fun giveaways going on with this book right now, so you'll


definitely want to stop by all of the other blogs on the tour...details at the end of this post.


My row is called "Stars in Bloom" and can be made with one print for each block, two prints for each block...or completely scrappy!


Here is a list of the participating blogs...stop by each one to see each designer's row...and for a chance to win copies of the book.

Thanks for the giveaway. I am one of your followers. cork@pa.rr.com

Cecilia said...

I like that row quilts can tell a story or paint a picture of a memory. I love your star row and will definitely use it in a row quilt. Thanks for the chance to win a copy.

Mommy Me Time Scrapper said...

Row quilts are fun, thanks for a chance to win.

Allison said...

I like my quilts to be scrappy and row quilts work quite well for that.

lynn said...

I like that there is so much room for personalizing in a row quilt, and that there is a sense of completion after each row. Thank you for this offer!

Deb said...

My fave thing is doing rows with a long distance friend and sharing p ucs via email.

hekeseme said...

I like the opportunity to try different blocks and learn different skills with each row!

Lynn Houle said...

I love the variety you get from row quilts and you can make them as big or small as you want and need.

Lisa Corneilson said...

My camper looks just like the one in this row by row quilt! I am planning to make a row by row quilt following our adventures in our camper and this book looks like it will be a great help with my design process.

Julie in GA said...

I like making a variety of blocks rather than lots of the same pattern.
Thanks for the giveaway--love your row pattern!

T Holzer said...

I'd love to make a row quilt using up my scraps. I think that one of the best things about a row quilt is that you could make a row and then make a different quilt and then make a second row...it could be a work in progress. Thanks for this chance and your row is very nice! Creekside Simply Woven is done as I finished it yesterday. I ordered fabric for french seam pillow cases so I will make those today.
Happy Thanksgiving!

Carol C. said...

I love scrap quilts! With a row quilt, you don't get bored making the same block over and over...yet it's more organized than a sampler quilt...I love that. Thanks for the opportunity!! I love your blog, your fabric, and your quilts!

Mara said...

I made a quilt with the last book and I liked doing the QAYG method for each row then it was all quilted when I was done, win win.

Glenda McCarthy said...

I love row patterns, because they can be used in so many ways-tablerunners, placemats, borders, plus the obvious row quilts? Love your stars, I like to add stars wherever I can in a quilt.

Karen Bergt said...

Love your Row!! Thanks for the giveaway!!

Vicky said...

It is fun to see what everyone comes up with. All the interpretations are sew interesting!

Martina said...

I love the fun of different patterns and also that you can add as long as you want to, lol!

Linda Stutzman said...

I like the variety of blocks from row to row. It keeps my interest in the piecing process. lindamae1022@gmail.com

Laura said...

I like row quilts because it's a choose your own adventure option. One row can be a table runner, 3 or 4 a baby quilt or wall hanging. Also lets you experiment with new techniques in a smaller or larger project.

works4me said...

That is a very nice block.
I like row quilts for the versatility - I can use one row for a runner or long quilt, I can play with the blocks and turn the quilt horizontally or vertically, and I can even remove blocks to add to other locations in a larger quilt.
Thanks for the chance to win.

Sandy R said...

I did my first row quilt last summer. It was during the Row x Row and represents a camping trip my husband and I took through CO, WY, UT and NM. I love how you can do so much with row quilts. Thank you for the chance to be in the Giveaway.

Tanya Quilts in CO said...

I love how you can pick and choose rows for the look you want!

Anita said...

I love that you can pick and choose which rows to make, and that you can make the rows as long as you like.

Kathy Richins said...

I love that they can be used as individual blocks, be made into table runners or wall hangers or mixed into other row quilt patterns. I have used them as borders in other quilts to add length or width. So versatile and fun. Love your new block Sherri!

Wendy V said...

My favorite thing about row quilts is that I can make them scrappy and turn the rows into anything I like. They are perfect for table runners, but they also make great snuggle quilts.

Lisa Marie said...

I love that row quilts can each be so unique -- just mix together whatever rows and fabrics suit you! My favorite one I made started with a bunch of orphan blocks and I just added things from there. Such fun.

Jen said...

I have never made a row quilt but I want to! Thanks for the giveaway!

Babyburrito said...

The first quilt that I ever finished was a row quilt. There is something about a row quilt that gives you a sense of accomplishment. All along the way, when you finish each row it feels like you have completed a quilt and then again when you put those rows together. It really keeps you going.

Andrea Teal said...

I love the varied design of a row quilt!!

Amdezo said...

I love how Row quilts are like a sampler, but once each row is done it is easier to assemble. And they are just FUN!

Hildy said...

Love your row it looked really cute in your booth! I've never made a row quilt but it would be fun to have different rows in one quilt.

Karen Hootman said...

I love how they look. I love all the quilts that have been shown on the blog and Instagram. Would love to win this book!!! Thanks for the chance to win this great giveaway!!!

Vicki H said...

I made a row quilt several years ago. I resides on our bed.

EdieS said...

The first row by row I ever participated in was the hardest 😏 After I completed it I was surprised how many ideas popped into my head. I now find them fun, easy to put together and a very creative opportunity. I love the variety of patterns and varied techniques. Bring it on!!!

Gisela Buitendag said...

I like that the rows together can tell a story, specially for a kids quilt.

GranChris said...

What I like is you just do what you want and the colors you like.

kathy said...

What a fabulous book! Your row has so many possibilities!

Ann Witten said...

I bought the first book and fell in love with all the ideas and creativity shown. My goal this upcoming year is to make a row quilt for our home- wish me luck! Thank you for the great giveaway chance!

Esther Grimes said...

I actually haven't made a row quilt yet, but it seems like it would be as fun as making several table runners with the added bonus of ending up with a snuggle-able size. Sounds fun to me!

JanCarAll said...

I am loving all of the creativity. I usually use the rows and mke table runners. This book is perfect for me.

cpentzer said...

The variety offered by row quilts is infinite. The patterns offer quilters choices which will make it personal and significant to them. I like the opportunity to make a quilt really mine in a way that won't be found any where else.

Joanne M. said...

I have not made a row quilt but I think it would be great fun as you would not get tired of making the same blocks over and over for an entire
quilt. It is like making a number of table runners and sewing them together. However these rows are so cute I could see repeating them for an entire top!

I love everything about them, trees, flowers, houses, stars, etc. Each one is different just as we are all different!

Tammy McDonald said...

I love that you can take the parts and create a unique quilt or a row quilt.

Alyssa said...

Love the row by row concept. Keeps me from getting bored of the same pattern.

mary said...

Let's face it. Sometimes I get tired of making the same block over and over again for a full size quilt. I like the variety and learning curve for row by row quilts.

Trudy Keller said...

I love row quilts! Thanks for the giveaway.

Sue Cahill said...

Row quilts look are a great way to use a bit of my stash, since the scrappier the better, I can customize the rows to my fabrics on hand.

Jodi - usairdoll said...

So many awesome rows! What a wonderful book! It’s great that a portion of the monies will go to a charity as well. I love row quilts for the variety of things you can learn as well as tell a “story” with different rows.

Super giveaway! Thanks for a chance to win.

Nancy Lewis said...

I love the different designs on each row, and the chance to use your stash!!

scottylover said...

I love that I don't get bored making the same block over and over again! :)

Beausoleil Quilts said...

I love the sense of community and sharing that a group row quilt gives. Each person's quilt can look so different but all look great.

Kathy E. said...

I like the variety of rows created within a theme and the choices it gives the sewist to make one, a few or all of them! They definitely look so cool all put together.

Susan L. said...

Great row! My favorite thing about row quilts is how quickly they go together, & how versatile they are.

Jayne said...

I love the fact the even if everyone made the same row, they would all look so different

Carol Feye said...

To me it is the variety that is the main attraction of a row quilt.

AnnedeBretagne said...

I like when row quilts are fun and with lot or colors. Thanks for a chance to win

Susan Smith said...

I've only made one row quilt but it was very satisfying to see it come together row by row and know that part was finished. I could really see my progress faster than in a block quilt.

Kath said...

How exciting! Thankyou x

Diane Beavers said...

Hi Sherri,

Row quilts tell a story, or often a memory of the pattern designer, or just seasonal ones like beach houses, autumn leaves. That's why i love 'em.

Thank you for sharing Stars in Bloom, so scrappy and scraps I do have!

Cynthia Knapp said...

My favorite thing about row quilts is that you don't have to make so many of the same blocks! Each row is different. Thanks! cknapp3626(at)sbcglobal(dot)net

Jennifer Daniel said...

I love how each row has a different flavor because they were designed by different people. I can also pick and choose my favorites and end up with a quilt that's totally different from any one else's!

Rita said...

What a fun book. The choice to make one row of box’s or to mix it up. Thanks for the giveaway and your blog.

Linda said...

I have always wanted to do a row by row quilt, I need to get these patterns.

Carolyn said...

I love the variety in row quilts along with the ability to vary size and colors to your liking.

KMSC said...

I love being able to choose different rows to make the quilt my very own.

Linda said...

I love the idea of a row by row quilt.
Good luck everyone.

DL JORDAN said...

Row quilts just by their nature produce so much creativity even for those who feel they are not blessed with the quality!!

Julianna said...

I've never made a row quilt, but one of the things I like about them is there is such a variety of blocks in it. It's really a type of sampler quilt and I've always wanted to make one of those. Love all the whimsical patterns in this particular one.

Lisa Garber said...

First...love your row!! I think a row quilt is a great way to try different blocks and patterns...plus they look cool!

Cristina Scarfon said...

I love the way it looks like. Tks for the chance to participate

Afquilt said...

I love the variety of a row quilt!

WesternNYLady said...

My favorite thing about row quilts is the variety. You can tweak a row to make it your own then make a quilt that's special to you or for a gift. Would be happy to win a copy of this new book.

Jami Pearson said...

Row quilts are fun to make! Endless possibilities!

mac said...

I enjoy the variety of blocks and the fun of participating in a quilt along.

Melissa said...

The best thing I like about row quilts is that each one is different, and even when using the same patterns, quilters can show their individuality. (Also, I like how each row can be used for other projects instead of only in a quilt.)

Patti said...

I really like the variety in the rows when making the blocks and enjoying the finished quilt.

Kd Brown said...

My favorite thing about row quilts is watching them grow...row by row!

MoeWest said...

I like that these rows can be used as table runners, wall hangings or combined into a quilt.

Ginny said...

I like the variety you are not making the same block all the time and you can really personalize it to each persons taste. I would love to wins copy!!

AnnieO said...

Love your star blocks! I'd make them in two colors like you did. My favorite thing about row quilts is color play. So many ways to make a totally different project out of the same blocks.

mamadevlin said...

I️ live everything about the row by row. What’s not to love?

Janet said...

I've never made a row quilt but some of the rows in this book are so tempting!! I love your row - scrappy stars are my favorite :0) Thans for the chance to win a copy of this inspiring book!

Sharon Treece said...

I love making row quilts. It row I finish means I;m closer to finishing the whole quilt. There are so many beautiful rows to make. Thank you for participating in this years designs.

GO STARS! said...

I like row Quilts as a way of trying many different ideas without having to make a big quilt with each - you can try lots of different strips and make a big quilt.

Helen L said...

Love your flower stars Sherri! This book looks like it has some really fun rows in it! Hugs, H

Sewgirl said...

I like that you can make as many or few rows as you like. Great for a variety of projects from table runners to full size quilts!!

Nancy Chappelle said...

I love the variety . you get to piece or applique different blocks. it just creates a lot of interest :)

Lois Capper said...

I like row quilts because you can finish a section at a time. Also, keeps my interest,since each toe is different.

Kathryn T said...

I've never made a row quilt but sure thinking this would be fun and I love what I can see of this one.

Naomi said...

Each row Osborn different, so you never get bored!

kelly tadlock said...

Love the row by row book, thanks for the chance to win!

Julie G-AZ said...

I really enjoy your blog! Row quilts are great for versatility. You can stop at just one row for a table runner or add as many rows as you want to accommodate the size quilt you need.

Cathy Calloway said...

I enjoy the variety of rowquilts. And the chance to make it in any combination that strikes your fancy!

Cheryl Harrod said...

It is great to try many designs from many designers in the row quilt. The new book is excellent.

Dorris said...

I haven't done a row by row yet, but I have always admired them. This looks like a good one to start with.

Ginger Holt said...

I have never made a row by row quilt but would love to. This looks like a great way to begin!

Sarah said...

Row quilts are fun - the progress is much more visually satisfying than putting a top together block by block. Thanks for a fun giveaway.

Unknown said...

Can't wait to pick just the right rows for each person on my list.

Susan Stanton said...

Since I like to do sampler quilts, this is along that same line of thought, because you get to do many cute patterns and not just the same block over and over again!

Joan said...

I like row quilts. I love all the designs and the quilt seems to go together faster. Thank you for sharing your lovely row and the chance to win.

kathiquilts said...

looking forward to browsing through all the rows - what fun!

Catskill Quilter said...

Row by row quilts are a chance to "customize" an individual quilt by picking designs you like, or your specialty of piecing or applique, or making a seasonal quilt. Fun!

Tammy said...

I think what I like about some of the row quilts is that they seem to tell a story. Each row is unique but yet tied together. Love your "star" row!

Unknown said...

I think I like it because of the variety of each row. Nancy A: rangerer@sbcglobal.net

Leslie Kohn said...

I like row quilts because you can try different skills with each row, as well as make each row your own. So many different options to use with a row quilt!

Thanks for the opportunity to win!

Judi Smith said...

Wow, a row quilt sounds like just the thing to cure my UFO problem! Just think, l would only have to finish one row of each block. Count me in!

Jean said...

Never made a row quilt. But love the way they look.

Julie said...

I would start with the flowers and tree blocks. I love your block, Sherri. I love row quilts. They are so much fun!

Kleine Vingers said...

I have never made a row quilt but would love to make one.

S Walker said...

I like that row quilt patterns can be downsized to table runner or made to fit a pillow using a single block. And they still provide a lot of variety. swalker287 (at) aol (dot) com

Janet M said...

Row quilts never get boring! Looks like a great book!

June Smith said...

I like using & choosing different designs!

Carol C Thomas said...

I have never made a row quilt. Looks like fun.

JANET said...

With row quilts, you have several different blocks or rows explore. It makes the quilt fun to look at. Thanks for the blog hop. It's been fun to see all the rows.

suesinger said...

Looks like a great book

mangozz said...

I've never made a row quilt before but it looks like a lot of fun.

Cathy B said...

I like the fact that a single row can quickly become a wall hanging or table runner. Like to put out small accent pieces that change with the season, and these fit the bill!
basaran.family@rogers.com

Camille V said...

I like the diversity of row quilts. Each row is a mini quilt on its own and together they reflect the personality and interests of the quilter. I collected many rows during the summer Row by Row Experience events and that got me hooked on row quilts. How nice it would be to win this wonderful book of row designs!

Janet Ward said...

Thank YOU ! For all of the love & Creativity that you chose to give to these kids!! Thank YOU for such a beautiful Row!! And for giving me... us another chance to win a great book... dedicated to helping others! This is my first year of Row by Row... although I have been rowing the other rows by states for three years! I do want to find last years book, and hope to get this years book... keepingbup with all of the blog hops has been a bit difficult, as the dates have all been different. I misunderstood how & what was going on... but not to worry, I will know better next year. For now, I’m ready to have this chance at getting that book!
I live Row Quilts, because when you finish arow, you get such a sense of accomplishment, it gives you triple incentive to go on... and each other Row is another piece of the prize!! I win... all the way around...
