Thank you for participating in the Moda Fabrics and Martingale "All in a Row" blog hop on my blog. It was an honor to share the day with my friend and fellow Moda Fabrics designer, Sandy Gervais.


I appreciated reading your creative comments. This book has such a great variety of rows to create. I'm leaning toward trying all of them.

What i love most about the "All in a Row" book is the collaborative spirit in which it was made. It's also great that when you buy it all royalties go to Share Our Strength's No Kid Hungry campaign to end "child hunger in America by ensuring all children get the healthy food they need, every day."

In joining more than a dozen Moda designers in celebrating the book through the "It's a Beauty of a Book!" blog hop, I'm sharing my version of this "Thread and Pincushion" row designed by my fellow Moda Fabrics designer, Sandy Gervais.
Here are a few photos of my rendition in Aria -- my soon-to-ship collection for Moda Fabrics. From start to finish, it took me a few hours to complete, and I had never sewed setting triangles before. Look at how cute this is when it's done:
I used Moda Bella Solids Graphite (9900 202) for the background because i wanted to bring out those colors in Aria.
My favorite part? This cute little dimensional pincushion. I plan to appliqué around the edges, once i learn to handstitch better!
Over on her blog, Sandy is making the He Loves Me row that i designed. Here is a peek at the row made with fabrics from my Paradiso collection. Can't wait to see what Sandy's looks like.
