Hello and welcome to Day 11. (The last day of the hop.)
 It’s a Beauty of a Book and Social Media Hop: Moda All-Stars All in a Row 

There will be Prizes too!
All royalties from this book will be donated to 

 A charitable organization dedicated to ending childhood hunger.

Today's bloggers are Kaari Meng and Lynne Hagmeier
Below (in blue type) is the copy written by Jennifer Keltner to introduce the lovely Kate Spain.

On the straight and narrow, please give a warm welcome to Kaari Meng (French General) wearing her row DRUNKARD'S PATH. Now I was going to tell you that the inspiration for Kaari's row came to her while in France on vacation over a bottle of wine, and then another.but it wouldn't be true. A true Francophile, Kaari is simply into the classics in every sense of the word. A two-color row that's anything but plain—she keeps it scrappy using a combination of her French General fabrics, patchwork, and the classic quilt pattern –all united to create a delightful row as comfortable in a row quilt as it would be used alone to create a table runner. Merci Beaucoup!

 Is it just me or does anyone else think 
that if your replace that crown with a pillbox hat,  
Kaari could star in a Jackie Kennedy movie?

I think so.

 I LOVE her row. Red and White - a girl after my heart.

Kaari's picture is titled:

All in a Row

Lynne Hagmeier (Kansas Troubles Quilters) wearing her row FALL. Lynne squirreled away some of her very best design juju for her row---featuring not only fall leaves and Acorns, but Bcorns and Ccorns as well. When asked to participate in the pageant, Lynne was the first to join in the fun replying, I wouldn't want you to LEAF me out. (it's okay to groanLeaf me outfall  leavespeople, we need some enthusiasm, even late in the day.)   

Lynne hand crafted her beautiful acorn and leaves crown.
It rivals anything that royalty wears.
And she must have practiced her wave diligently
 as it was the best of all the contestants.

Lynne's picture is titled:

Looking for Bcorns
