A few of my favorite things

Here is the pincushion that goes with the bookazine giveaway listed below!!

Okay, who is hungry? for projects to use the moda precuts that is. A beautiful book by Edie McGinnis from Kansas City Star is hitting the shelves. KCS has been so kind to let me share with you an excerpt of the book making it one of my favorites.YUMMY YUMMY YUMMY! Another of my favorite things is the new Bags, Pillows and Pincushions issue from American Patchwork & Quilting. It is a BOOKAZINE. What is that? A book and a magazine morphed into one. Who doesn't want that? Leave me a comment here about your favorite project on the
Moda Bake Shop and you will be entered in a drawing for this bookazine and a Big & Bold pincushion made by yours truly- me. Designed by Jill Abeloe Mead. I am also making the Wool & Whimsy pincushion by Roseann Meehan Kermes but I am keeping it for myself. (I will post a picture of the pincushion as soon as I get my camera fixed. Drawing this weekend.)

Another one of my favorite things is the new book I received in the mail. Wonderful eye candy for any quilter.
A Beautiful book by Gwen Marston. Photographed by my friend Gregory Case. Each of the quilts are beautifully photographed full size as well as a close up to show detail.


I am thinking the bella solids would be wonderful for any of these.


We have been honored to have Gregory take pictures of the moda booth during quilt market. Can you imagine trying to gather all these people to get in 1 picture? Well Gregory did with a little help from Elena and myself. (I am hiding in the very back)
A small part of the special people that bring moda to you!!

They are my very Favorite things (except my family)
Oops gotta go.. Bachelor is on.

  2. I'm kind of loving stacked coin quilts at the moment such as:
    http://www.modabakeshop.com/2009/02/stacked-coins-baby-quilt.html
    Lots of new babies amongst my friends and family at the moment.
    And ... I've just purchased my very first jelly rolls and need some inspiration so I can rip into them.
    Pick me! Pick me!

  3. I love the braided rug! What I love more is that every time I stop in at the bake shop, there's something new to sample!!!

  4. Right now my favorite Moda Bakeshop project has to be Camille's table runner...it was so quick and fun to put together! But I really do love all of the Moda Bakeshop projects...I started out bookmarking Moda Bakeshop posts...but then I realized I liked them all, so there was no need to bookmark...it's a terrific resource!

  5. I am loving that braided rag rug!!! So useful, especially since I don't much like store-bought rugs! Thanks for makine me check it out!

    ReplyDelete
  6. honestly i love everything on the moda bake shop site, too bad i did not have moda products on hand to make. still trying to find a shop nearby that sells it. i am new to quilting so i do not have a stash, and due to finances and having 4 kids, cannot build it quickly. but hopefully can soon. i am making your quilt that is in the mccalls quilting magazine though. have a good day!! thanks, Stacey luv2knit@roadrunner.com

  7. I just love moda! THey have the greatest designed fabrics ever! They never lose their appeal it seems. I liked the braided rug they made, but I couldn't see myself using their wonderful fabrics to make one...I would use ugly material to make one and not feel guilty LOL. I do want to make a stacked coins baby quilt sometime in the near future too.

    ReplyDelete
  8. I love Vanessa's braided rug! But I love a lot of them!

    ReplyDelete
  9. I love all the patterns, but my absolute favorite is "Sugar Cookies" by Margot. Hexagons are so great to work with. Thanks for the chance in this giveaway.

  15. What is not to love about the Moda Bakeshop? My friend, Vickie E, has already started the rag rug, and I love the new quilt that was posted today, Belgian Waffle. Please enter me for your drawing and keep "Moda-ing On"!

  16. First, let me just say I luv the Moda Bake Shop and all of the ideas. My fav would have to be the chenille hot pads. Thanks for the opportunity to win a giveaway.

  17. Tough choice, but I'll narrow it down to the Swanky Turnover Quilt (Belgian Waffle), Stacked Coins Baby Quilt, and Charming Pincushions. Sorry, couldn't do just one :D

    ReplyDelete
  18. That book looks delish! ;o) There are so many great projects on the MBS blog, too hard to pick just one! Camille's Table Runner I really liked and made one myself. Monica's quilt, very cute and thinkin I'm gonna have to make it. Oh and the rug from Vanessa! I want one of those too! I have the perfect place for it too. ooxx`jodi

    ReplyDelete
  22. It was really hard to pick a favorite. My favorite is the Swanky Turnover Quilt. But I had a hard time choosing between it, the table runner and the bow tie quilt.

    It is fun that you are doing a giveaway. I would love to be so lucky.

    ReplyDelete
  23. okay i have to go with i like too many of them but what i want to try next when i get some free time (AHAHahahah...hmmm) is angela's nap sack. i think that would be perfect for my boys to play video games or watch a movie in!

    ReplyDelete
  24. Oh, Belgium Waffles is my fave project! I just love LOVE Swanky.

    ReplyDelete

  27. Ohhhh, there are a few "must have's" I need to go get!! Thanks for sharing! Now my fav project on MBS...there are too many to choose from...but if I have to pick one, I guess it would be..baby burp cloths and bibs.

    ReplyDelete
  28. Gee, you're going to make me pick just one??? Betty's Baby Bowties and Sugar Cookies are on my Must Do list; I'm not quite experienced enough for Belgian Waffles - all those bitty triangles scare me - so that's on the Must Do Later list!

    ReplyDelete
  29. All are my favorite on MBS! But if given the sophie's choice... it would have be Vanessa's crazy cute adorable rug.

    ReplyDelete
  30. All the projects are fab, so its hard to choose a favourite...but I'm really liking the Stacked Coins Baby Quilt.

    ReplyDelete
  31. That looks like a great book. My favorite project on Moda Bake Shop is the Li'l Zipper Bags, I've made 4 of them, so fun to make.

  32. I can't just pick one. I love the charming pin cushion and the lil zipper tote. And the turnover quilt that Monica did. Awesome!

    ReplyDelete
  33. I love the rug . can't wait to see the new magazine. Linda Gerig

    ReplyDelete
  34. Lucky me, I am leaving a comment after the sweet Punkie Pie! I love the Moda Bake shop and I am torn to have 2 favorites... I love the Sugar Cookies table runner (I have printed this out and am waiting for the hex template) and I really love the Stacked Coins. I have quilted for a long time and have never made this pattern... but the fabrics and the tutorial make it look so fun! This one will be my next project:)Since I spend a lot of time with Moda... Moda is my favorite family too!

    ReplyDelete
  35. Hard to choose a favorite because they are all so darn cute. I guess I would have to go with the Sugar Cookie pattern with hexagons. I'm feeling the need to make one of those. After making a queen size grandmother's flower garden quilt for my daughter I didn't think I would ever make another hexagon project but I'm warming up to a little project. With hexagons. Again.

    ReplyDelete
  36. So many great ideas it's hard to choose just one! I'm partial to the stacked coin quilt, rag rug and belgian waffle quilt...

    ReplyDelete
  37. Why just today I was eying the Stacked Coins baby quilt, thinking I needed a lap version for myself!

    abcallen@earthlink.net

    ReplyDelete
  38. Braided Rag Rug, or Stacked Coins Baby Quilt. Please don't make me decide.

    ReplyDelete
  39. Must we choose JUST one?! I love them all, but have had a blast with Posie Pockets and Stacked Coins. Deb

    ReplyDelete
  40. How in the world could anyone pick just one favorite? I love the rug and the pin cushion but those penny pockets...I think those might be my fav. Oh heck. I love all the projects.

    ReplyDelete
  41. Love the Moda Bake Shop and all items are lovely, but my favorite is the Bow Tie Baby Quilt.

    ReplyDelete
  42. I love everything in the Bake Shop! Well who doesn't ..whether it's a bake shop filled with chocolate or beautiful feeling eye candy like MODA! I couldn't choose just one so I picked 3 of my favourites. IN order starting with my absolute favourite (which I would love to start today!) is the Braided rug, Stacked coins and the Sugar Cookies. Thanks for the great ideas. I love all my MODA fabrics and love to work with the Jelly rolls.

  43. I just love Amandajean's stacked coins baby quilt and Monica's Belgian Waffles quilt. I'm goign to make one of them for a baby shower, I just can't decide which one!

    ReplyDelete
  44. The Moda Bakeshop is simply fabulous! My two favorites are the Stacked Coins and the Belgian Waffles. What a clever way to use the turnovers! I think I will actually make the stacked coins as a shop sample so when customers ask for the patterns I can just tell them where to find it.

    2. Camille's Simple Little Table Runner
    3. Belgian Waffles by Monica of Happy Zombie ~ I think it's a PERFECT idea to use Turnovers...

    Sorry, couln't name just one...
    Cheers, Julia

  52. The braided rug is my fav. Thanks! Michelle C. rockatoonya@hotmail.com

    ReplyDelete
  53. That bookazine is great. I love the braided rug. It reminds me of a rug I had in my room growing up that was made by my great-grandma.

    ReplyDelete
  54. So many great project in the bake shop, how could I choose just one?! Maybe the sweet candy quilt...or the baby bowties...or the belgian waffles...or the braided rug...

    ReplyDelete
  55. I love all the projects, and browing the site. My favorite, right now, and it's hard to choose is the braided rug. Hope I win!

  56. My favorite is the Sugar Cookies Table Runner - I love charm packs and it looks so difficult when it's done but the directions are a piece of cake! If I don't win your giveaway I'm going to hit Barnes and Noble to get my own copy!!

    ReplyDelete
  57. I am in love with the stacked coins quilt. So simple and elegant. All of the projects are beautiful, even the new necklace, but that one just popped off my computer screen at me. :)

    ReplyDelete
  58. I can't decide between the Sweet Candy Quilt and the Sugar Cookies Table topper. Basically, I just love the Moda Bake Shop for the ideas, great pictures and instructions. Thanks~

    ReplyDelete
  59. I love all of the projects on Moda's Bake Shop, but right now I think that my favorite is the Sweet Candy Quilt.

    ReplyDelete
  60. I love the new bowtie quilt project. It's such a clever use of the charms and creates a really intricate quilt.

    ReplyDelete
  61. Ooh, yum! I love precut fabric, because I HATE cutting! I love the sweet candy quilt. Rck rack and paper piecing! Ack!

    ReplyDelete
  62. I would love that book, as I am really into purses. My favorite back shop item is hard to choose, there are so many neat things. But, only one,huh? It is the Penny Pockets. They are so,easy, breezy, quiltingly youthful, for all ages. They just remind me of a simpler time, when things at least seemed easier.

    ReplyDelete
  63. There are so many gorgeous projects how do I choose just one but because I am in hexagon mode right now I will choose the Sugar Cookies table runner.

    Margaret

    ReplyDelete
  64. I´m new to quilting/patchwork and sewing so I will say my favourite, at the moment, is the simple table runner (with ric rak at the ends).
    Or the pincushion :)
    I would love to go into the draw.

    ReplyDelete
  65. So many cool projects... Camille's little tablerunner... love the nap sack and the baby play mat... the gypsy scarves are gorgeous... so much creativity. A Bookazine with pillows and bags - perfect!!!

    ReplyDelete
  66. Can I enter too? My favorite project is the Sultry jelly roll quilt. I AM going to make that one. And about 20 other things. Love the favorite things post idea. I might have to copy you...

    And wow, what a beautiful book!

    ReplyDelete
  67. Now I know why it is called the Bake Shop--everything is yummy--it's hard to choose a favorite. I do really have to make myself a Sugar Cookie table runner soon--maybe a Swanky one though.

    ReplyDelete
  68. OH!!! Just look at all the yummy precuts on the front of that Bookazine. I love them. I have been working on a table topper all day today using a Moda jelly roll. I noticed Camille said she is going to make the Sultry jelly roll quilt. I think that one is to die for myself and will have to order online because none of the shops in my area ordered the Sultry collection in. ***sigh*** Sometimes I wonder at their choices. They just don't seem to cover the entire spectrum from bright and cheery to elegant and beautiful. They are all beautiful of course but some...well, some just speak to me. Ah well, thanks for the look at the projects. Hey! Why are you hiding in the back of the group photo??? LOL

  69. Oh, I would love to win almost as much as I love Moda Bake Shop. I just did a post on my blog about my burp clothes I made. I just loved that tutorial, but I also loved the Baby Stacked Coins quilt and the charming pincushion....too many good tutorials to choose from.

    ReplyDelete
  70. Mmmmm...that book is gorgeous! Even the cover is yummy.
    I love Moda Bake Shoppe; it's such a great idea. I think my favourite project (and it was hard to choose) is the Sultry jelly roll quilt.
