23 Row-by-Row Quilt Designs
Compiled by Lissa Alexander

Ready to row again with Martingale and the Moda All-Stars? We’re counting down the days until this amazing sequel arrives! Join 23 Moda sewing stars who’ve designed rows in four creative categories: Flowers and Trees; Critters and Creatures; Buildings and Houses; and Classic Patchwork. The book also includes 10 blender rows that perfectly fit the width of each designer row. Make just one row for a fast runner, wall quilt, or gift, or choose your favorite rows to make bigger quilts—it’s entirely up to you! And, as in all the “Moda All-Stars” books, you’ll enjoy questionaires that let you get to know each designer—it’s what makes every All-Star book extra fun.

Easy Layer Cake QuiltsEasy Layer-Cake Quilts
Simple Quilts That Start with 10″ Squares
Barbara Groves and Mary Jacobson

Me and My Sister Designs are back with more sensationally simple quilts and loads of Layer-Cake style! The sisters are famous for those little tricks that make simple blocks look more complex than they truly are. A Layer Cake, a background fabric, and a border fabric are all you need to begin. Eleven fun-to-stitch projects include a stitch-and-flip Cake Walk quilt, a Chevron-style string quilt, an off-center Log Cabin quilt, and a pretty pieced-flower quilt (for those of you who love flowers but are allergic to appliqué). Let this dynamic duo teach you how to whip those Layer Cakes into tasty quilts—for cuddling, for giving, or just because!
