Fresh Fabric Treats Book Review

Another good book. I saw this book on a shop hop last week, but, I was being good, and only getting stuff that was already on my list. I read lots of things about WWII. Both my grandfathers were in WWII, but they were both 'old men' by the time they served (one had even been in WWI). Was the comment left by cheryl2quilting who won yesterday's MINICK and simpson book.

I love flipping through the pages of this book. It is not the newest book but it certainly has a lot of projects that are prefect for the upcoming gift-giving season. Yes Gift Giving and I am giving one away today.
 Fresh Fabric Treats published by Stash books and features 16 different "recipes" (That is code word for projects so the men in the household think we will be in the kitchen. Instead we are in the sewing room!)
 from a few of the talented "chefs" featured on the Moda Bake Shop.

This project is made by Kimberly Walus. I love the organizer tote that has bags inside made from fabric and clear vinyl to keep all your things in plain sight.

 
I said it was the beginning of gift giving season so go ahead, leave a comment, By now you know the drill. I must be able to reach you via e-mail and you must leave a comment before 6:00 in the morning. (Friday) A 24 hour gift- away.! Lack of sleep makes me think I am funny by making up new words. 

Good Luck!










 
The best part of this is that I am going to give this book away to some who leaves a random comment. You must have a way for me to contact you. This will be short and sweet. I will draw the name by 6:00 am tomorrow morning. (Friday) A 24 hour giveaway.! Go for it and thanks for stopping by.

  30. I would love to cook up the recipes in this book. I've got a stash of precuts that would certainly appreciate being let out of the closet! And after cooking for a crew of cowboys for 2 weeks, it would be nice to cook something that doesn't require me to be in the kitchen! Thank you so very much for your generous gift-away! :)

  41. I am, if anything, a cook!! Just ask my friends and they will tell you "Kathie can cook anything" So when Moda Bake Shop started up, it was as if they were calling my name, I fell in love!! First this is a cleaver idea (recipes) and second using precuts Brilliant!! I can always go there and find a little something I want to make !! Maybe it isn't baking but it is so much FUN!! k.bugbee@att.net
