All In a Row Blog Hop: Scotties & Westies

We Moda designers did a cooperative book.

Moda All-Stars All in a Row
We're doing a blog hop in January and today is my day!

For the book we each designed a row and stitched it in our Moda fabrics.
Mine is a classic pattern Double Stars (see page 91)
It's done in traditional pinks and brown repro fabrics.


There are many aspects to this Blog Hop. One
is a trade. Me and Me and My Sister are trading today.
Hop over there to see what they're doing...




They are making my row and I am making their row.

Their row is Fetch---it's on the front cover and see page 29.

They feature a black and white dog and pinwheel blocks in brights.

Here's my trade. 
I reversed the colors and did the pinwheels in the brights of my Morris Jewels collection. 

A charm pack would be more than enough.

In EQ7 I used a dark grunge print from Moda
#30150-225

If their dog is a Scottie
Mine is a Westie (a white  West Highland Terrier).

One of my favorite dog artists is Lucy Dawson (?-1954) who
drew chalk pastels of dogs for postcards, biscuit tins and books.

She drew many Scotties and Westies. 

She signed her drawings MAC.

But I digress...


Here's my Fetch row drawn up in EQ7 with a 2" finished border.

There are huge prizes, give-aways and mass social networking going on over at Moda.
Check it all out here on Facebook:

The contest is over!
Anita won.
But lots more give-away at the other Moda designer blogs.

Westies rock! I did Westie rescue for nearly 10 years. The two 8 year old boys are considered unadoptable due to health issues. This week not much of anything is getting done as my Westie so suffers from siezures is possibly dieing as a result of taking phenobarbital which in his case is a necessary evil. I saw this post and it was the first real smile in a few days. All dogs are lovers but Westies grab you by the heart. Thanks for your post.
