Is it Dessert yet?

It  is day 6th of the

Welcome to my new guests. I am supposed to tell you a little bit about myself but I can't do that without first telling you about the company I work for, Moda fabrics. Moda fabrics is a family owned company that sells only to independent retailers, or what is called "mom and pops." You will never find our products in places like Walmart, Joann's etc. The owner's passion of supporting the independents carries through to what we do on a day to day basis. When I first went to him with the Moda bake shop concept, he said, "Sure, let's give it a try." now 2 years later we are celebrating Fresh Fabric Treats.  (pretty creative- that I did not have to talk about myself!)




Jan 2009 the first post was by Angela Yosten featuring a travel mug. Now 2 years later we are traveling (digitally) to some of the Moda bake shop chefs homes. Today's post I share with
Rachel Griffith. She was one of the first chefs to share her talent and enthuasium so I am honored to share the day with her.



Welcome,Welcome, Welcome.
In true bake shop form my recipe is for something non edible,
cupcake tea towels and apron.
Most likely if you were coming to my home, we would all gather around the sewing machine and create some yummy projects while the men whipped up something on the grill. My parents taught all us kids to be comfortable in the kitchen or with a set of power tools, so there are no stereotypical roles in my household either. My son is cooking wings as I type this post.
SUPPLIES:
Toweling, charm squares, soft and stable fuse, buttons, and trims.
Moda's toweling is available on a roll, hemmed along the sides. For each towel, cut toweling 28". Apron- 1 1/4 yd. (26 for apron, 19" for ties and pocket)





Choosing what to use is just like choosing what to add to cupcakes. There are so many choices.
TOWELS:
Trace the template pieces on the fusible interfacing. Iron them to the wrong side of the fabrics. Cut the shapes out. Please them on tea towel and iron in place. Click here for cupcake templates.
Hem top and bottom of toweling 1". Press edge .5", fold up again, press and stitch to create the 1" hem.
Additional options:
(many of you know I am a middle child. I don't know if I can't make up my mind or I like to make
everyone happy. Here are additional options to create your own cupcake.)



 BUTTONS:
Use a red button for the cherry on top.
 -OR-
Make covered buttons using the I-top button making tool.
(my favorite crafty tool as of late. If you did not get one for Christmas, ask for one for valentines. It is so much fun.)


If you do not have a button that is the color you are looking for, combine a fabric yo yo and a button to make a covered button that can be sewn through the button holes. (thank you Susan Fuquay for this idea)




TRIMS:
There are so many fun trims available in quilt and
specially stores that I had to add a few of them to
my tea towels. Ric rac, pom poms, crocheted trim,
and ribbons add that hand made touch. On my tea
towels I used the French general ribbons as a loop
to hang the towels. (see below) Determine how big of loop you want and add it as you hem to top section of your towel.






 To add an edging to the bottom you your towel, sew it right sides facing to the top of the towel. turn the edging down as  you hem the bottom of the towel. This works on the crochet trim and ric rac. Some of the trims can be sewn directly to the top of the towel.










APRON:
The toweling can also be used to make a cute half apron. Determine how wide you want the apron to be. Add apron ties as listed below. Trims  can also be added to the hem on the aprons. I  added ric rac as I sewed the pocket onto the apron.
Determine how wide you want your apron to be (approx 26" is  a nice size) Ties were cut approx 4 1/2" wide by 19" long)

 You will need to buy double this amount. The additional yardage will be used to make apron ties. Cut the stripe from the toweling for apron ties. Hem and add to the sides of the toweling. Using the additional fabric, cut pocket square. Add a cupcke to the pcoket placing it along the top of the pocket. Add a ribbon loop when sewing the pocket in place. Sew a button on the apron and use the ribbon loop as a button closure.










Now that I have a cute apron to wear I had to put it to use in the kitchen.
CHOCOLATE CHIP CUPCAKES
1 box yellow cake mix, 1 small box instant vanilla pudding
1 cup sour cream, 3 eggs
1 cup oil,  1 cup chocolate chips
1 cup chopped pecans, 1/2 tsp. Vanilla
1/2 cup water, 1/2 cup mini choc chips
Preheat oven 350 degrees.
Combine all above ingredients. Mix together approx 2 minutes. Fill cupcake holders 3/4 full. Bake approx 10 minutes. Cool and frost. I made mini cupcakes because these are sinfully rich and delicious.
If making as a cake, grease 9 x 13 pan and bake for 25-30 minutes.
CREAM CHEESE FROSTING
1 8 oz. Cream cheese, 1/2 cup margarine
1 tsp. Vanilla, 4 cups powered sugar
Soften cream cheese and margarine. Blend until creamy. Add vanilla and powered sugar. Use food coloring paste (not liquid) to add color to frosting. Decorate as desired.

Enjoy!!
Tomorrow visit Julie Herman and Sweet Water, then ....
The last stop on the progressive dinner is Jenny Garland and Angela Yosten. These are the two talented ladies that keep the Moda bake shop's pantry full of projects for you to enjoy.

I am sure you have read about the giveaway on each of the other chefs posts. By now you should know that by memory. My favorite precuts IS ALL of them (another middle child trait) but I will choose jelly rolls. I like combining a print jelly roll and a Bella solid jelly roll for a bigger project and a different combination.
So you know the drill, leave a comment on my blog to win precuts of my choice and a Fresh Fabric Treats book. In the past moda bake shop has featured stores, projects and even recipes. If there is anything you want more of on the bake shop, please leave it as a comment. Follow me on twitter or stay tuned to my blog for insider Moda information as well as random ramblings from a middle child.
Leave a comment on all posts to be entered in the grand prize drawing.
PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE make sure you have an e-mail address, so we can contact you if you are the lucky winner.

  32. yum! Cupcakes! (I always seem to eat more of them than actual cake though ... they're so small and travel so easily from the counter to your mouth...)

    I love seeing quilt tutorials - particularly quilts big enough to use on the couch or bed.

  38. Thank-you for such a nice time! Cupcakes and tea towels are adorable! Love Love moda and especially all the precuts. I am in depression mode because I just moved to New Jersey from Texas and left my favorite place that ONLY CARRIED MODA! Can you believe that just fabric stores(not good either) are not really here or are far away! I know I am spoiled by having 15 minutes to drive and see in person all the gorgeous moda lines(joanns is even an hour drive)I don"t live in the middle of nowhere so thank heaven for internet ordering or off to the train ride(30 min) to NYC! Thanks so much for all you do! Hats off to MODA!

  40. Congratulations on two years of the Bakeshop and the new book! As I have devoted more and more time to quilting in the past year, the Bakeshop allowed me to discover Moda, precuts, and so many great projects. Thanks!!!!

    ReplyDelete
  41. This is the first time I have found my way t your blog and I love what I've seen so far. Congratulations on the book - I can't wait to get my hands on a copy! I will proudly admit that the Moda Bakeshop is what inspired me to attempt my very first quilt - the stacked coins one. I have been in love ever since, not just with quilting but with Moda. I recommend it to everyone, gift it to others, and continually find fresh inspiration in the fabrics and the blog. :D

    ReplyDelete
  42. I think the apron is darling, and if I had a figure that could possibly even fit in a teatowel, it would be on my todo list! :) Thanks for dessert! We did progressive dinners with our teen youth group years ago...it was a blast!

    ReplyDelete
  43. I think the apron is the prefect gift for Valentine's Day for my sister. Yes we give gifts to our immediate family.(our maiden name was Valentine) Thank you for participating, ideas, new friends to meet, recipes, projects... I am soooo envious of you. You work for MODA. If I went to where they make or stock the fabric, I don't think my eyes or mind could take in all that eye candy.OOOOOHHHHH!!!!! The over load... What a DREAM that would be ;-)

    ReplyDelete
  44. So YOU'RE the genius behind the Moda Bake Shop! Yeah, everyone on this dinner tour is a published author now but that's something to really lay claim to! How does one get a dream job of working for Moda, anyway??

    I would love to see more bake shop recipes for Candy Bars ... so far I've found only one, even though I came across one for charms that could actually be used for candy bars also.

    My email address is linked in my Google profile but it is tenquilts at gmail dot com.

  46. The apron is really cute, and those cupcakes, my goodness they sound/look delicious, I must make some! Everything that Moda does is wonderful and I'm a modaholic, only buying fabric from Moda, and it's wonderful that you only support the Mom/Pop shops. LOVE the pre-cuts, they make it easy to make a quilt or any other project.

  56. I'll take a chocolate chip cupcake with a hot cup of coffee please. I can taste it already.

    Scrumptious - just like Moda precuts - never a calorie to be had.

    Any jelly roll that is calorie free is right up my alley.

    I have not seen the Moda Toweling for sale but would love to know a source where to purchase it....especially since I am known to be an "Apron-holic".

    ReplyDelete
  57. Oh yes! Now that is MY kind of cooking! Love the apron. It definitely would be cute to wear while making cupcakes.

    I also love jelly rolls. They are the first precut that I ever tried and I am constantly amazed at all the creativity that can come from one.

    ReplyDelete
  58. Cute apron. I didn't know Moda sold the dish toweling by the yard. Can't wait to buy some.

    ReplyDelete
  59. Thanks for sharing the tutorial- the apron is adorable!!:) I too love the pre-cuts and also MODA!!! Congrats on the book and can't wait to see it! I'm fairly new to quilting and came across the ModaBakeShop one day and felt like I hit the jackpot! I just LOVE it!! When someone compliments me on something I've made from there, I don't hesitate to tell them about ModaBakeShop!! Thanks!

    ReplyDelete
  60. That apron is darling! And thanks for the intro to Moda! That "moms and pops" bit was new to me. No wonder I can't find Moda fabric anywhere else. Not that I'm complaining - I know plenty of people who will sell it to me! :)

    ReplyDelete
  61. I love the smaller projects on the bakeshop the best, like little pouches and bags. So more of that.
    Those cupcakes looks delicious.

  62. I love Moda and I love cupcakes. So I enjoyed your post very much. Haven't seen the Moda toweling here in the Netherlands, but will surf the internet to explore this. The book looks so yummy, i hardly can't wait till May! Let's hope I win one... Hugs!

  63. Yum those cupcakes look so delicious! Grats on the book I can't wait to see it :) I have just started quilting again after 10 years with no machine or fabric stash so I haven't had a chance to get any Moda treats yet but I can't wait to get some jelly rolls to play with! I would love to see more boy oriented projects since I have 4 boys :)

    I love your apron pattern. . . it will be very appropo for my sister, the baker in the family.

    As for what I would like to see at the Bakeshop. . .hmmm, more male oriented designs would be wonderful. My DH is a quilter also but he doesn't like working on baby projects or things that are too "fussy".

  184. The apron is adorable. I love that Moda has trims like this. They were once the rage and now are almost impossible to find anywhere else! Moda Bake Shop is such a great idea. It was the next logical step to all their pre-cuts. I love that you can get a "taste" of all of the fabrics in a line without breaking the bank and that designers have come forward to give us such wonderful projects to go with them. Looking forward to seeing this new book!
