Sweet Celebrations Book Tour + giveaway

Sweet Celebrations with the Moda Bake Shop Chefs

Welcome to my pit-stop on the Sweet Celebrations Blog Tour!  In case this is your first introduction, Moda Bake Shop has compiled a book of all new patterns, Sweet Celebrations with Moda Bakeshop Chefs, with inspiring sewing creations to celebrate your favorite seasons and holidays throughout the year.

Sweet Celebrations with the Moda Bake Shop Chefs
Here are a few sneak peak pictures of the variety of projects found in this book. I was beyond excited to be invited to contribute. I have three projects in the book, including this Love Notes wall hanging (above).  (You can see little snippets of my other projects here. I’ll share more about them in the months to come.)

Sweet Celebrations with the Moda Bake Shop Chefs

As part of this tour, Oda May of Moda Bake Shop fame, has asked us each a few questions. Here are some of my responses:

What is your favorite part of quilting – fabric selection, piecing, quilting, binding – and why?
Wow. I have so many favorite parts of quilting. I really enjoy the cutting, piecing and even binding, but if forced to pick a favorite, I would have to choose the fabric selection process. Picking the color palette and fabrics, laying out the contrasting prints and textures – I just love that part.

What sewing accomplishment are you most proud of?
I would have to say, finishing my Union Jack quilt this summer. It’s been a long time work-in-progress and I’m so happy it’s done. I’m glad I had the London Olympics as my deadline motivation.

What have you gained from the online quilting/sewing world?
I can’t adequately sum up all that I have gained from the online quilting world.  I’ve been a closet quilt-lover most of my life, but always felt a little dorky telling people about my “granny” hobby. Discovering the online sewing world about 5 years ago was like finding a bunch of new best friends who shared my love of petting pretty fabric, and then cutting it up into small pieces and sewing it back together.  As a result of that discovery I have been able to connect with many real life friends who share that same love. Not to mention all the beautiful inspiration available and readily shared by so many talented people!

Sweet Celebrations with the Moda Bake Shop Chefs

As part of this tour, I’ve been asked to share a favorite family recipe connected with the holiday of my favorite project in the book. Well, my favorite project I contributed is a Gratitude Quilt where I embroidered the names of many of the people, places and events that I am most grateful for. It’s something I’ve always wanted to make, and I’m so excited to be able to share the pattern in this book!  Pictures of that quilt coming soon!  

In connection with that project, the recipe I am sharing a recipe is from Thanksgiving, one of my favorite holidays. One of our new Thanksgiving traditions is to brine our Turkey. (I shouldn’t say “our” I should say “my husband’s” new favorite tradition, since he does all the work. I am merely the beneficary of his efforts. Wow. SO GOOD.)

But since that tradition is still evolving I thought I would share one of our very established Thanksgiving traditions: my Grandma’s Pumpkin Chiffon Pie recipe (not pictured). This pie is a light, fluffy, chilled version of a classic Thanksgiving flavor. My grandma passed away 9 years ago and my mom has continued that tradition every year. One of these days I need to make one myself so that I can carry on the tradition.  Here is that recipe. Even if you’re not a traditional ‘pie’ person (I’m not either) you might like this one!

And now the really fun part! I get to give away a copy of Sweet Celebrations with Moda Bakeshop Chefs to one of you as well as well as one of the latest collections of Moda precuts!

To Enter this giveaway, leave a comment on this post. Anything you want to say. If you’re feeling stumped, tell me your favorite holiday to sew for.

And the good news is that you can enter to win at any of the stops along the tour! All giveaways are open until the end of October 14. Giveaway CLOSED.

    I try to give everyone in my family a handmade Christmas ornament each year, so I tend to do my handwork for Christmas (starting back in the summer, so I can get it done on time!) Sometimes they are not sewn…this year, oddly enough, I am knitting christmas light ornaments. 🙂 They also make great cat toys!

    Although I was a 4-H&#39;er as a kid, I&#39;ve only recently begun sewing again – some quilting (gifts for new babies has been popular with me)and things for my home (curtains, wall-hangings and the like). I&#39;m getting ready to start a Christmas gift, so I suppose that would make my favorite holiday to sew for Christmas, as I&#39;ve never sewn for any other holiday.

    Pumpkin Chiffon Pie!!! I&#39;m not a real &quot;pie person&quot;, but this sounds Heavenly!! I have got to try this recipe– it&#39;d be perfect to take to my Mom&#39;s for Thanksgiving! My grandma &#39;s traditional Thanksgiving dish was her cornbread dressing, which my Mom took over when Grandma was no longer able to do it.. There is no recipe– and I&#39;ve watched and tried to duplicate

    hanksgiving is my favorite holiday also, if for no other reason than because it has not become &quot;merchandized&quot; like all the other big holidays. It doesn&#39;t hurt that pumpkin pie is my absolute favorite pie and I love turkey and dressing/stuffing also. I&#39;m ready for some right now!<br /><br />

    I don&#39;t sew holiday themed quilts, but I do love the colors of autumn, so that is the time of year I would associate most with my taste.<br />I am a relatively new fan of the moda bake shop &quot;sweets&quot;. I could become a layer cake hoarder if I&#39;m not careful!

    I love to sew small quilts, but right now I am addicted to a pattern called the ten minute tablerunner! I love Moda and all their beautiful lines of fabric! Pre-cuts are the best1

    I love your Love Notes wall hanging and the Union Jack quilt (one of my favs), so pretty. I love quilting all seasons of the year and wish I had more time to sew, so many wonderful patterns. Thanks for the recipe, sounds yummy!

    Christmas has always been my favorite holiday to sew and do crafts for. With no kids anymore, it isn&#39;t quite as fun, but I am entertaining myself this year by making a quilt for each season/holiday, placemats for each season/holiday and now…a quilt for each of my grand children for their christmas present!

    I think Christmas is my favorite-there are so many possibilities with it. Tree skirts, table runners, wall hangings, gifts, etc.

    I&#39;m really new to quilting, like really new. I&#39;ve made 8 of one type of quilt, the &quot;simple as pie&quot; with the raw squares sewn on as a grid on a big square (or table runner) and that&#39;s the extent of my quilting. I&#39;ve been sewing all my life, won the Home Economics award twice in high school and minored in clothing and textiles at BYU, but haven&#39;t been brave enough to

    I do like to give handmade gifts though I&#39;m not very good at getting things done for particular occasions. I do manage to finish kind of randomly, though, so I&#39;ve developed a bit of a reputation for giving gifts more &quot;out of the blue&quot; than when I&#39;m supposed to. It&#39;s how I roll … apparently.

    I used to love sewing for Halloween, because where I used to work I had to be at work all day long and late into the night. I would miss the whole trick or treating so my making the Halloween costumes was my way of being a part of Halloween night!
