Creating quilts one row at a time is a method that is only increasing in popularity. There are so many merits to this quilt style. Suddenly, you have the flexibility to try a variety of combinations and mix-and-match possibilities!

Find inspiration for this creative quilt technique with All in a Row: 24 Row-by-Row Quilt Designs from Martingale! This Moda All-Stars edition includes twenty-four row designs from twenty-five contributing designers! Allow yourself to be inspired by the variety of row-by-row patterns shared by so many creative minds.

The book is divided into three sections: Classic Patchwork, Well Seasoned, and A Bit of Whimsy. The book also features nine border rows to help tie your designs together.

All in a Row opens with A Bit of Whimsy, which I think is a charming introduction to the book! These patterns include playful designs featuring birds, clothing, little houses, flowers, and more! I love the Wash Day pattern on page 16. It includes adorable patterns for little outfits on a clothesline! The Bird on a Pumpkin Pattern (p. 33) really catches my eye because of the leaf blocks. The fabrics chosen as well as the way the cut fabric lays out is just so beautiful!

Following A Bit of Whimsy is a Gallery of Row Quilts (p. 42). This is a lovely feature that showcases how so many of the rows can be arranged to form truly unique designs! On page 48, two quilts using similar row-by-row patterns are shown in two different colorways. It's amazing what a difference the color choices make! Don't turn away a quilt pattern because you aren't a fan of the colors used in the example. Choosing your own colors can make a world of difference!

Well Seasoned features a variety of rows applicable for holidays and seasonal use. Here you'll find spring quilts, bunnies, snowmen, pumpkins, sand pails, and more. If you need a table runner for Easter or a summery wall hanging for the beach house, this chapter is a great reference! There is one particularly stunning embroidery pattern for Winter Friends (p. 71). Framed by blocks in coordinating colors and classic patterns, the stitched snowman scene is the star of this row.

Last, Classic Patchwork includes some tried-and-true favorites. Flying geese, half triangles, and basket blocks are among some of the common patterns found in this section. Feel free to use these classic rows alongside whimsical and even seasonal ideas for a truly inspiring new row-by-row quilt.

Depending on the place you have in mind for your quilt, you can include as many or as few rows as you'd like. A single row can complete a tablescape, two rows can accent an alcove, and a full quilt serves as the perfect wall hanging or bedspread! Enjoy paging through this collection of charming row-by-row ideas, and let the patterns in this book inspire you to begin your own row-by-row quilt!
