Sweet Celebrations Blog Tour ~ Celebrate the Baby~

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!Sweet Celebrations with the Moda Bake Shop Chefs
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!
Sweet Celebrations with the Moda Bake Shop Chefs
(quilt shown above is April's Hanukkah quilt, I machine quilted it.)

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! 
Marshmallow Caramel Popcorn.

  19. There are special quilts for Christmas. I also have queen-sized quilts for both the upstair's bedrooms when I know company is coming. Most of my quilts are made for family or friends. Thank you so much for the chance to win a copy of the book. Anything from Moda is very exceptional and I am sure this book will certainly be cherished for a long time and will keep someone very busy for the holidays.

    ReplyDelete
  72. I tend to press seams open so it is easier to FMQ, but it is not a hard and fast 'rule.' Though I admit to asking my customers to create using open seams and tigh stitches, if possible.
    As to the special occasion quilts, hmmm... I would say that most the the recipients of my quilts say THAT RECEIVING a quilt is the special occasion!

    ReplyDelete
  73. My quilts are all out year round. But I don't keep most of the quilts I make.

    ReplyDelete
  74. Yes, of course. I have tons for different holidays and that is one thing and then just different seasons call for different color schemes in my house so things are always changing although one thing is constant and that is how full my linen closets are. Thanks for sharing and I think the design you quilted on the quilt is very nice.

    ReplyDelete
  108. I wish I could say I have quilts that I bring out on those special occasions but I haven't made a full quilt yet since I'm still considered a beginner.

  159. Just some table runners at this point. I would like larger quilts but that would probably take a life time to collect.
