Welcome my SWEET friends! Today is my turn to tell you a little bit about the new Moda Bake Shop book Sweet Celebrations. Who doesn't love to celebrate something? I do!
Oda May from the Moda Bake Shop asked me a few questions;
What have you gained from the online quilting community?
I have gained more than I could have ever imagined, friends, support, inspiration, I love the online quilting community!
What sewing accomplishment are you most proud of?
I am very most proud of my new book Beginner's Guide to Free-Motion Quilting, when I began machine quilting years ago I would have never imagined that I would be one day a published author. I'm also very honored to have some of my designs published in both of the Moda Bake Shop books!
How do you press your seams?
I generally always press my seams to one side, and preferable toward the darker side. However there are times when I do break that rule and press the seams open and there are also times when it just works best to press the seams toward the lighter fabric.
If you could have a quilt shop spree what items would you snag off the shelf?
I would run for notions, although I don't use a lot of notions I sure do love to look at them. :)
Do you prefer to celebrate with cupcakes, cake pops or plain old cake?
I love plain old cake, although I hate chocolate, so any cake but chocolate. I know, now you think I'm crazy!
I am so excited about the new book, I've contributed a few projects but one of my very favorite is my baby quilt, when I designed and made the little quilt I was expecting my baby. Now that I have the little guy I can't wait to hang my fun baby quilt in his room. :)
Since now you know my secret, I'm not a big chocolate lover, here is one of my favorite sweet treats!
