Sweet Celebrations blog hop

Welcome Welcome. I am honored to be one of the stops on the tour along with such talented people. Sweet Celebrations features projects from 21 designers or as we call them chefs.
 Chef is code word so that our families think we are spending more time in the kitchen than in the sewing room.
Why I am on the hop? Because I had the honor of compiling this project. However I did not do it alone. I had lots of help from Angela Yosten and Jenny Garland who helped hatch the entire project.
I also wanted to give a shout out to Chelair Etter who took care of making sure each chef had the ingredients necessary to complete their project. Thanks also to the great crew at Stash Books for putting together such a great book that can be used throughout the year.
The book was started a year and a half ago so to see the actual book and the great projects inside is such a great surprise to see how it all came together.

Throughout the hop you will see a few of the projects in the book so I am not going to duplicate those images. However I am going to show you the pages titled, Celebrate the Designers. That is really what this blog hop is all about, celebrating the designers and all the work they put into this project. I am lucky enough to have my hands on an early copy of the book. I also have many pages flagged for the projects that I want to make!

If you are a storeowner, you can meet some of the chefs at market. They will be there doing a book signing in the United Notions booth.

If you are coming to Quilt Festival in Houston, there will be a Moda Bake Shop booth, showcasing some of the projects from the book as well as all the projects online at the bakeshop.

 Leave a comment telling me what your favorite part of quilting is and I will draw a winner for this little bag of treats that includes 8 different 2 1/2″ charm packs called Moda Candy.

My recipe is from a friend of mine, Debbie Outlaw. The recipe has been around for so long no one knew what it’s original name was…………so I took the liberty to rename it, Outlaw’s Pumpkin Muffins.

here is a link to the recipe.

Hop on over to Little Miss Shabby to see what she is saying today about Sweet Celebrations.

    My favorite part of quilting is hand sewing the binding down. It is sooo relaxing and I can sit and visit with the hubby while watching tv. Your mini muffins sound yummy! Thanks!

    My favorite part of quilting is seeing the design actually take shape. There's nothing more satisfying that standing back and admiring a perfectly pieced quilt top 🙂

    I don't know very many people who would agree with me, but I LOVE binding the quilt! There is just something about finishing up a project with a little bit of hand stitching.

    I enjoy the very first set of seams. I haven't messed up yet, so I still feel very optimistic that the quilt will be great. Later on I make some mistakes and they become the "charm" of the quilt. thanks for the chance.

    It's definately not the unpicking part or looking at the uneven stitching. It's probably the quilt top all finished-I get all giddy "I did it!" I usually get a tear in my ear with the satisfaction of accomplishment. You notice I didn't say "completed quilt" – I only have quilt tops…and several of them!

  6. My favourite part of quilting is making the tops. I have several tops made now, they all still need to be quilted and bound. So close yet so far. I wish I knew someone who preferred the quilt side and we could swap and get more quilts made!

    My favorite part of quilting is sewing the blocks and seeing the pattern come together in the colors that I've chosen.
    I have to remember to use that code word "chef" from now on!

    my favorite part of quilting is honestly picking all the fabrics to use in it… 🙂 I love putting together colors and patterns… *sigh*

    The part I love best is the picking out the fabric to go with the design i have chosen to make. Or finding a design which will best show off the fabric I have such as your candy charms.
