Row Along - Winter Wonderland!!

So I have never done a  row-along but have always wanted to.  So when I was asked to design a row for one I was super excited.  I love designing and it would give me the opportunity to finally participate in a Row-Along,  Double Bonus!!  This fun event is being  hosted by Patchwork Posse,  The theme is “Winter Wonderland,” and every 2nd and 4th Monday of each month there will a tutorial posted at Patchwork Posse for a new row.  The rows will be 48" wide and up to 10" tall.  So you will have a pretty nice size winter throw when you are done!!

Here is a list of the designers and when you can expect the new rows :)  I am so excited to be part of this amazing group of quilters!!

January 28: Patchwork Possie
February 25: Robin Quilts, etc.
March 11: Quilter Chic

I have decided that I will be using my Blitzen Fat Eighth bundle to Row-Along.  I love this line and think it will make a wonderful Winter Wonderland quilt :)  So grab some Winter inspired fabric, and  get ready to  row along!!   

Pin It!


  1. I hope this comes out the right way because I am honestly laughing sitting here. I ordered a layer cake of Blitzen to make my sister-in-law and brother-in-law a thank you quilt for always hosting family gatherings. When it came in, my husband and I looked at each other is obvious disappointment. We both just didn't like it at all. I had planned to use it in a pattern that kept most of the layer cake pieces in large pieces. I found another pattern, cut it up smaller, and sewed it together. The result is now acceptable! And this is one of the reasons quilting is so fun -- what one person likes isn't necessarily what another person likes but we can all appreciate the effort and creativity. I can't wait to see what you come up with and maybe it'll even make me want to buy some more Blitzen!!! Thanks for blogging. It makes my lunch hours go fast!

  2. The row-along looks like great fun and I hope I am in a position to "play" too!

  3. This sounds like a lot of fun! Hope all is well Melissa!

  4. Sounds fun, never heard of a row along..

  5. I'm looking forward to seeing what you come up with!! I signed up to follow the Patchwork posse's blog so I can row along with you all (if I can find the time: eep!) I'm planning on working on your starburst quilt today!! I keep hoping to get to it each day, but life keeps getting in the way!! :-) Have a great weekend!! H in Healdsuburg
