All In A Row

Good Morning! Welcome to my day of the All In A Row Blog Hop!  I'm sharing this day with Anne Sutton from Bunny Hill Designs. This is how Anne looked the last time I saw her.

Anne is a Snow Bunny. Very topical for today.  This is her row.....

My mission, which I chose to accept, was to recreate this row in my fabrics.  

It probably isn't a surprise that when I made this - we were having a big of a snow storm too.  

That's icy sleet coming down, if you were wondering.

My row had a bit of a different feeling......I can't wait to see what Anne does with it!

 Thank you Martingale, Moda, and Lissa Alexander for asking me to participate.  We know you'll love this book.  Remember, all proceeds from this book goes to No Kid Hungry


I would love to give one away to a lucky commenter.  Just make a comment about All In A Row, No Kid Hungry, Snow Bunny Anne, the snowstorm, the beach, sandpails, heck - whatever you want to comment about - and I pick a winner for the book Tuesday, January 26th.

Laters,

Laurie

We had the Blizzard all day yesterday.... I think we got a little over the 24" predicted... lucky for us the power stayed on... so we were warm... and I was able to keep myself busy at the sewing machine and day!!! Any charity for kids is a beautiful thing! This runner is cute and I'd love to make one for next winter! :-)

Vicky said...

I just ordered the book because you guys are such teases! I love these snowmen!

Amy said...

Love what you did with Anne's snowmen! The blues are perfect for our 20 inches of snow. Too bad the postman won't be coming for a few days... And I appreciate that the book supports No Kid Hungry.

Hildy said...

I hope you're safe and that the snow storm pass quickly! I've seen what Anne did with your row and let me tell you it's as beautiful as what you did with hers.

Sharon said...

I really like your block and love what Annw did with it. So cute, all of them!

WoolenSails said...

Fun seeing all the different rows and I do love seaside pieces.
I think it is wonderful that the book will also help others, quilters are the best.

Debbie

Becca said...

Snowing here, so the beachy one is the most appealing to me. I wish I were at the beach today!
Next summer, of course, I will be wishing for snow! Both designs are wonderful!

Mrs. Sinclair said...

Seeing what others have done with the same row gives me courage to choose my own fabrics when creating a block. This book is the only thing for which I've asked for my birthday in May! I love table runners, so a book of rows is perfect for that! Be safe. I'm in southern California, so I can only imagine the beauty and anxiety that amount of snow at once would cause.

Leslie said...

Love the sleet lines in your all in a row! A nice touch to give the row "movement". Thank you for being a part of No Kid Hungry!

Nancy said...

I'm being perfectly honest when I say that your sand bucket row is my very favorite. Thanks for sharing. Nancy

I love both of your rows. Can't beat snowmen or sand pails! Thank you for the inspiration!

Loris said...

What a sweet rendition of the Bunny Hill row. Your snowmen and fabric choices are delightful! I must say that when I saw your row in the quilt...I loved it. Your pail design just makes me feel happy. It's a perfect choice in this row quilt! Thanks for the chance to win a copy of the book. I would love one :-)

janice said...

I'd love to win a copy of the book. And, I kinda wish I had a snowstorm so I could stay home and sew for a few days.

Barbara Gonze said...

I got a lot done yesterday since we got 24 inches in the Philly area. I love the rows and would love a copy of the book.

Every time I see a new post I think that's my favorite. They are all so wonderful. So inspiring to see the different interpretations. I can't wait to start my own version of the quilt.

Laurel said...

I love your blue version of Anne's row. I love your pail row as well.

Andrea York said...

I love those snowmen! We sure could make some real snowmen with all the snow we've gotten!

Monica said...

Your row is so cute. I'm just now seeing the projects for this quilt along. I would love to win the book

Kathy in FL said...

Since I'm in Florida, I prefer the beach pails to snowmen! And I had my share of snow storms and snowmen, growing up in Michigan then moving to New Jersey, before retiring in Florida...

Christine said...

All the rows are inspirational and now seeing them in different colourways takes these projects up a notch.

JanetD said...

Great row variation. I'm glad we aren't getting the massive snow here, but something besides all the mud we do have would be nice.

kristie said...

What a great cause to have the proceeds donated to! Love your "sleet" in your row adaptation!

Deborah said...

The snowman rows are very applicable to what I see when I look outside my window today! Very wintery! This looks like a wonderful book.

Miss Jean said...

I'm fortunate to be looking out at the sun today although we are due for snow tonight! My quilt club is doing a row by row exchange so this is great timing for me!!!

Heather said...

Those snowmen rows are so cute! I love that you changed up their hats and scarves a bit and they look totally at home with a soft blue background...fun!

Here in Allentown , PA, we just had our biggest one day total snow of 32 inches, since 1922. Lots and lots of shoveling.

debbie said...

I love your snowmen.

Kim Q said...

I love your row, it's adorable! Thankfully, we came through the blizzard yesterday with no sleet, just lots of wind and snow.

Rosalind Gutierrez said...

The All-in-a-Row Snowman table runner is perfect for this season & reminds me of the winter storm affecting our country.

Cindy h. said...

I have enjoyed seeing the everyone is making the rows different. I would love to win the book.

Marie Chat said...

Your interpretation of Anne's row fits in perfectly with the snowy cold weather around the country now. I'm looking at lots of sunny skies today so I can picture taking my grandsons to the beach with those sand pails! Thanks!

Lori Jane said...

Thanks for a chance to win. I love your remake of the block with the sleet.

Kim said...

Love your version of Anne's row! We also had snow yesterday--though we didn't get much, only 5 inches. Looking forward to the weather when your row will be featured!--you know, summer! LOL Thanks for the chance to win.

Sue N said...

Such a cool idea , love seeing all the different rows. Thanks for sharing. The book would be fun.

wendy said...

I am partial to blues so I really like how your version of Anne's row turned out. I also like vintage sand buckets. We used to use ours in the snow as well as the sand when I was a kid. Thanks for the inspiration!

Unknown said...

I love the red, white, & blue blocks and sandpails. It looks so summery and beachy and I could use some summer thoughts right now!

Snow is one of my favorites. So a row with snowmen is great. I would love to win the book and have a snowstorm to warm up the sewing spirit.

What a sweet row. I love how the change in fabric color changes the look of the row. Thanks for sharing the giveaway!

Little Quiltsong said...

Beautiful! Love how it looks in all the blue fabrics and your cute snowmen. Love your row with the pails - it captures that 'beach feel' perfectly!

Linda said...

I Love snowmen and the beach.....is it because I live so far from both?!?

bj said...

The snowmen are cute, but there seem to be thousands of snowmen projects everywhere! I do like them, but the pails are unique and the colors are so lively.

Esther Grimes said...

I love the block you designed and your take on the snowmen. They're both so cute!

Janet said...

I like both the red and blue snowmen. Too cute. Your pails and pinwheels are very attractive to the eye, eyecatching. Thank you for the giveaway.

So cute the pails and the pinwheels, but since it is snowing almost everywhere I do love the snowmen and stars the colors are amazing.

Sand pails & snowmen can't think of two things I like more. They are beautiful in both fabrics

I like your rendition of her row! I actually have enjoyed seeing all the rows so far. Would love to win a copy of the book and start creating my own.

Mary said...

How clever, red, white and blue with ice. That's usually what PA (in my area gets)ice that is on top of the snow. Sorry I missed the snow, visiting children in FL and the weather is cold. Would rather have been in PA. I've purchased the book and since I'm not at home will have to wait till we get back in another week. Glad to help No Kid Hungry.

Terry said...

Snowmen and sand pails…can it get any better? Beautiful rows :o)

I love the snowman row! I always wanted to do a row quilt, this would be a great one to do!

Margaret Lippert said...

I love your version of Anne's row. This book is so much fun, and gives everyone a chance to be creative. It's been fun seeing all the different versions. Will be looking for my copy of the book as soon as I get time.

allthingzsewn said...

I haven't seen a row that I did not like. You have done a beautiful job with your block. Such talented Ladies. I'm hoping to win one of these books since several are being given away. And thank you for your part in this. I appreciate the fact all proceeds go to the hungry. I know this will be a great over the top fund raiser. I will purchase one if I don't win one. And after the work of you ladies I think everyone who quilts will feel that way. I would think that some stitchers that haven't quilted might be inspired to do so.
Blessings
Tonia

Patty Flynn said...

Love to see how different the rows look with different fabrics. Never wanted to do snowmen until this row, and the pails are so cute
