EQ Seasons Row-A-Long

Welcome to a most fantastic Row-A-Long where you will find amazing quilt rows
designed just for you by several fabulous quilt artists! 
EQ Seasons Row Along

I am soooo excited to be participating....
 and want to give a special shout out to the gal who first invited me to play along....

And very special Giant HUGS and Quilt KISSES for the exceptional

Marian has devoted countless hours preparing us all
and I exaggerate NOT when I say I couldn't have completed this post without her expert help!

Now on with the show....
Let's Row.....A - Long!

For my season I chose "winter" and have prepared a most delightful row of Holiday Packages.

I designed the each block using EQ6 (my favorite EVER program).
Imagine this row in your holiday quilt - or maybe even by itself as a festive table runner.

Thank you to Northcott Fabrics for the simply luscious Toscany fab you provided for our backgrounds!
As you can see I used lots of Northcott Holiday prints and wonderful Artisan Spirit as well.
More holiday goodness from my Quilting Treasures stash!

Use fabs from your stash - you don't need very much for each package. I used less than a fat quarter of any one print for the multiple pkgs you see above. 
Wouldn't this look just scrap-a-licious if you used a different print for each giftee-treat?

Reminder...click on the "Notecard" for each individual block to see all info.

One of the items I used to help me lay out each block and keep things straight
(always a challenge...especially with our kittehs running round)
was a wonderful project board a made following
a super tutorial from
Lori Holt of Bee In My Bonnet.
I've made several boards - just right and oh so perfect to keep little pieces together,
and super easy to transport to the sewing machine for stitching.

Above you see one of the blocks as I laid out the pieces to form the block.
All the "pressies" are made with squares, rectangles and the magic corners!

You might also notice on the top right sidebar is a link to the 30" 2014 Row by Row pattern
I designed last year for our shop give away.
Yes, it was surely the inspiration for this row-a-long design....
because really....
