All In A Row Quilt - A MBS Tutorial

Today I am so excited to get to share with you a new Moda Bake Shop Tutorial.  The post actually went up on Tuesday but due to Terrific Tuesday Giveaway Day and the ending of the Irish Chain Twist QAL, I am just now posting about it.  So here it is ;)   It named it All In A Row.




I designed this quilt for my Grandmother as a special 85th Birthday surprise.  I knew the moment I saw Ambleside by Brenda Riddle at Market that it would be the perfect fabric for this design.  My grandmother grew up in England and these beautiful prints completely capture the beautiful English countryside feel.   The colors are just so soft and the prints are beautiful.   I can't wait for this summer when we get to travel up to Canada for her birthday and surprise her with it ;)



All In A Row finishes at 57" x 70" making it the perfect size to snuggle up with a good book.  It is made in a row fashion and each of the block rows are oh so fun to make.   I especially loved making those itty bitty 9 patches ;)  They are chain pieced, so even though they are small, they go fast ;)



When it came time to quilt this one, I decided to try something new.  Feathered Swirls have quickly become a favorite, so this time I added some Feathered Paisleys as well.  Mixed together they created a beautiful all over design with wonderful movement that adds to the overall charm of the quilt.  So happy with it.   Because I was working on a cream background I tried out a new color to quilt with, #403 Putty in So Fine Superior Thread.     It was the perfect blend!!!




So, that is All In A Row.  I hope you love this quilt as much as I do.  It will always be a special one for me because it was made for someone very special to me ;)    If you make All In A Row up for someone special in your life,  I would love to see it!!!  You can add it to my Flickr group here or email me a picture to happyquiltingmelissa@gmail.com :)



The step by step free tutorial can be found at the Moda Bake Shop so pop on over.  They even have a downloadable version of it ;)  And Ambleside fabric is out in quilt shops everywhere, including Fat Quarter Shop, Shabby Fabrics, Green Fairy Quilts, and Bear Creek Quilting Company,  just in case you want to make your own quilt with the same fabric. 


Thank you so much for stopping by today ;)  

I hope you have a very Happy Quilting Weekend!!

Linking this finish up to Amanda's and Sarah's  and Quilt Story :)

  5. So pretty, another thing to add to my "to do" list!

    If your Grandma is an English born Canadian, she may be interested in this project and reading all the stories of the warbrides, I have been reading them all non stop! I am English and have no link to Canada but love social history and have found the stories fascinating! http://www.pier21.ca/research/collections/online-story-collection/war-brides
