  • I love Moda and the Row by Row looks like so much fun. I just can’t decide if I want that or the Windy city Bags. Maybe I’ll be buying myself a couple of early Christmas presents.

    —Kathy on December 2, 2015

    —Pat on December 2, 2015
  • I love the "All in a Row" book idea. Ever since making a Row-by-Row quilt last summer, I’m enthralled with this idea!

    —Claire on December 2, 2015
  • Windy City Bags definitely got my attention. I’ve got several tote patterns, but the ones shown here seem so much more "structured" and purse like instead of a tote. Since I’ve got two sewing machines, why not use one for non-quilt ideas?!!!
    I would love to win this book.

    —debra lee on December 2, 2015
  • I would like to win Windy City bags as I had a compression fracture and find most bags can get to heavy to soon

    Kathy on December 2, 2015
  • I LVE the Row By Row book! I can see making all sorts of projects from that book!

    —Jan Harris on December 2, 2015
  • I’m really drawn to the bag book – I am finding it so frustrating to find a purse that fits my needs without paying close to $100! Thanks for the chance to win.

    —Lynn D. on December 2, 2015

    —Carol Gearey on December 2, 2015
  • All In A Row has just what I want for a wall hanging. Would love to win the book!!

    —Diana Salmon on December 2, 2015
  • Moda’s Row by Row. I get bored sewing the same block over and over for a quilt, so row by row is a great solution for me!

    —Barbara Snider on December 2, 2015
  • Tough choice today !
    Both "All in a Row" and "Windy City Bags" are calling to me…

    —Linda Fleming on December 2, 2015
  • Row-by-Row is calling my name.I would love to see a different set of row-by-row blocks. I did one as a beginning quilter many years ago in my quilt guild
    with several of us participating,and it would be fun to try a new one.

    —Linda Jones on December 2, 2015
  • The Moda All Stars 24 Row Quilts is really catching my eye. After having fun with the last two summers of the Row by Row Quilt project — I collected over 300 patterns alone this summer — I have learned to pick and choose rows and row parts to make numerous quilts tailored to each individual that I am making quilts for. So I am always looking for more ideas as well and this book would be just perfect. Thank you.

    —Sue F on December 2, 2015
  • PRIMITIVE STYLE is right up my alley! I love the churn dash block surrounded by a star and what an awesome collection of other beautiful projects.

    —Donna H. on December 2, 2015
  • Stars in a Row would be my pick. Thank you for the opportunity to win! 🙂

    —Sheila Fernkopf on December 2, 2015
  • My first choice would be the "Windy City Bags", because I enjoy creating useful bags that are classy. This book looks like it would have some first class designs to create a perfect purse.

    —Helena Eschrich on December 2, 2015
  • Windy City bags looks great!

    —Ashley on December 2, 2015
  • The Row-by-Row book is calling to me. Several of the rows on the cover just jumped at me and I would love to try making them.

    —Deborah on December 2, 2015
  • Moda All-Stars All in a Row for sure! How fun would that be to make either a row to hand or a full quilt.

    —Karen DH on December 2, 2015
  • The Moda book looks great but I’m expecting a new grand-daughter in March so maybe the Sweet Pickles would be more appropriate…. Decisions, decisions!!

    —Suzanne on December 2, 2015
  • All the books are very appealing, but I would choose "All in a Row". I am in charge of our guild programs next year and I think this would make a fun challenge project or "Row Robin"! Just seeing how two quilts with exactly the same rows but different fabrics look has me wanting this book. Wish me luck!

    —Susan Putman on December 2, 2015
  • "Windy City Bags" looks interesting to me. My grand-daughters live there, and I’d love to make something stylish for them.

    —Ricia on December 2, 2015
