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.

  2. I am new to quilting. The best part for me so far is picking the fabric. There are so many beautiful Moda fabrics. It's like the fabric speaks to you. And the colors... The quilt shop near me is like a big candy store. Yum, yum...

    ReplyDelete
  16. I have to say that fabric collecting is my favorite part of quilting, then the piecing--watching it all come together. The hardest part is choosing which fabric to use for which project......so many beautiful possibilities!

    ReplyDelete
  17. I love the cutting (although I cut the tip of my thumb off - ouch) and I love the quilting part too! Oh wait, maybe it is the fabric high I get from buying fabric that I love the best!

    ReplyDelete
  18. I love to piece, but do not enjoy quilting. I quilt by check (stole that from somebody). The quilting process stresses me out and it isn't fun anymore. I admire all those longarmers out there. I am a piecer and a fabric hoarder.

    ReplyDelete

    ReplyDelete
  34. My favorite part is looking at it and using it when it's all finished. Love seeing it at the end!

    ReplyDelete
  35. There isn't much I don't like yet, but putting that final stitch in the binding is such a good feeling!

    ReplyDelete
  36. oooh hmmm I have a serious love affair with needle-turn applique...but my most favorite part of 'quilting' is a finished quilt or quiltlet full of my love stitched into it.

    ReplyDelete
  37. I'm a brand new quilter and the joy for me is in piecing, trying to get those points to match!

    ReplyDelete
  38. my favorite part of the quilting process is the generations of wonderful people - my great-grandmother, my granny, my mom, me, my girls, and hopefully future generations that take bits of fabric and sew it all together into something of beauty and comfort.

    ReplyDelete
  39. I think my favorite part of quilting is FABRIC SHOPPING! Ha ha, no I really enjoy the piecing and the quilting!

    ReplyDelete
  40. I enjoy choosing the fabric and piecing by hand. So therapeutic because I have an autoimmune disease and I found that touching beautiful fabric helps me forget that I can't breathe or the pain I feel. Thank you for a lovely giveaway. Moda is my favorite fabric and my BFF. :)

    ReplyDelete
  41. You have an idea in mind and then the actual quilt is made and then you get to see for yourself the expression of love on the recipent. That says a lot - for you and for that person. Moda and all of the chefs have done a lot of hard work to make this book so priceless and to be looked at over and over again. Thank you for the recipe, a chance to win a copy of the book and those charm packs of Moda candy.

  42. My favorite part is taking the quilt from the dryer andseeing the magic of the 'wrinkles'!!

    ReplyDelete
  43. Great looking recipe. Thank you.
    I guess my answer now may change after I've done more quilts, but because I just finished my very first larger sized quilt ever, I'd say the challenge and overcoming any that popped up during the making of it was the most fun. I love challenging myself to do/learn new things. I really love how the quilt turned out.

    ReplyDelete
  44. so cute!! I much prefer piecing than anything. I love to chain piece since you invest little time for alot of production value! LOL!

    ReplyDelete
  45. I love picking the fabric! It is all about the colors and textures for me. Thank you for such a great recipe!

    ReplyDelete
  46. Picking out the fabric is my favorite part. That is why I got into quilting in the first place!

    ReplyDelete
  47. I love all the stages of quilting. Shopping for fabric is really fun, but the part I love best is trimming up blocks right after I've pieced them. {I used to skip that step, but it really improves my results, and the blocks look so clean and impressive.}

    ReplyDelete
  48. Piecing is my favorite part of quilting.

    ReplyDelete
  51. I think my favorite is developing a concept and then sitting at the sewing machine.

    It is fun to see an idea become a real thing.

    ReplyDelete
  52. The part when you put the finished quilt on the bed and settle down for a long sleep. Before that, hard to choose between choosing the fabrics, hand applique or hand quilting, but I think hand quilting wins.

    ReplyDelete
  53. My favorite part is matching the fabrics with my favorite patterns. SEW fun!!!

    ReplyDelete
  54. Picking the fabrics is my favorite part. I have yet to see any of those cute little Moda candies in person, but I would sure love to.

    ReplyDelete
  55. My favorite part of quilting is the final stitches of the binding! HA! Actually, I really enjoy choosing fabrics; trying to decide what goes where and how you want the quilt to look!

    ReplyDelete
  56. I love choosing the fabric and the sewing. And ten, honestly, my tops tent to lay around a while before I quilt them ... let's just say my quilting skills are upgradeable;-) Thanks and greetings from germany, Hildy

    ReplyDelete
  57. I love binding....it's the cherry on top and the last mile of the road. And you get to snuggle the new quilt while you're doing it;-)

    ReplyDelete
  58. I love seeing the designs come together. After choosing the fabrics, I always think I know what something will look like, but it's almost always better! And completing the blocks is so satisfying.

    ReplyDelete
  59. My favorite part is cutting and piecing, because I love playing around with all those tidy little stacks of fabric.

    ReplyDelete
  60. My Favorite part of Quilting is stash diving.
    My husband tolerates me, but every
    bit of avaiable surface area is
    covered in fabrics so can be
    assureed just the right ones are
    used and so i can make a list of additional fabric I need to buy.

    ReplyDelete
  61. I love the designing of the quilts. Pulling fabrics together is a blast. I can put fabric together that people would never think of using.and people just love them.

    ReplyDelete
  62. Picking out the fabrics - there are always so many beautiful choices!

    ReplyDelete
  63. I love the coming together part! And choosing fabrics, and finishing that binding, I think what I enjoy is free motion quilting. Mmmmm there is quite a lot I like about quilting!

    ReplyDelete
  64. My favorite part is picking the design and the perfect fabric to go along with it. There are just so many possibilities!

    ReplyDelete
  65. I love the design process: choosing a pattern/block(s), picking and fondling fabrics...ahhhh

    ReplyDelete
  66. Planning is the most fun, I think! I love just imagining how different patterns would look in different fabrics-- have lost many hours of sleep doing such "imagining"! LOL

    Thank you so much for this fun hop! I'm loving all the yummy recipes-- both edible and not! :-) Outlaw's Pumpkin Mini Muffins sound delicious-- and I love that they're so quick and easy to make! I'm saving this recipe-- I think it will be my contribution to our family's Thanksgiving dessert table this year! :-)

    ReplyDelete
  67. My favorite part of quilting besides the actual motions of doing so, is the satisfaction I get when I'm able to say, "I did that." I created that beautiful quilt that could possibly last for generations. But also because quilting is therapeutic for me, I find solace in the petting and cutting of beautiful soft fabrics, and the hum of my sewing machine.

    Thank you for giving us the chance to win!

    ReplyDelete
  68. Your recipe sounds delicious and I can't wait to try it!

    My favorite part of quilting is hard to name because I enjoy the whole process. I'm designing a baby quilt right now around fabric that my daughter chose. I loved shopping with her. And I'll enjoy putting it together and quilting it. I just like the whole process!

    ReplyDelete
  69. Thanks so much for the recipe and giveaway! I've been on the hunt for a new pumpkin recipe, and who doesn't love things in "mini!" My favorite part of quilting is watching the idea go from my head, to design wall, to real thing! LOVE watching it all come together!

    ReplyDelete
  70. My favorite part is pulling the finished quilt out of the dryer. Nothing better than that crinkly goodness!

    ReplyDelete

    ReplyDelete

    ReplyDelete
  74. Whatever part I'm working on at the moment tends to be my favorite part--except the cutting I'm not a huge fan of. I also enjoy the relaxing-ness of hand quilting.

    ReplyDelete
  75. Minha parte favorita,é escolha dos tecidos e a cada bloco pronto é uma festa.Mas gosto muito de ver pronta.Obrigada.tiacarminhapezzuto@gmail.com

    ReplyDelete
  76. My favorite part of quilting is hand piecing. I love to stitch the pieces together while I am watching television in the evenings. I also love color combinations and just looking at all of the lovely fabrics. I could easily become a fabric hoarder. EASILY!

    ReplyDelete
  77. My favorite part of quilting is getting that first block finished. Then I can see if my color and pattern choices are going to give the results I was hoping for. Sometimes I'm surprised by what shows up

    ReplyDelete
  78. I enjoy the piecing. Nothing better than hearing the hum of my sewing machine.

  85. My favorite part of quilting is seeing yards of fabric become a beautiful quilt. It still amazes me every time I finish a quilt.

    ReplyDelete
  86. My favorite parts of quilting are the beginning (choosing a pattern and selecting fabrics) and the end (admiring and enjoying the finished project). Of course, I also enjoy the I between!

    ReplyDelete
  87. I would say my favorite part of making a quilt would be at the point where you really get to see how the quilt is going to come together.

    ReplyDelete
  88. Honestly, my very favorite part of the quilting process (after the shopping!) is the quilting. I am a machine quilter and I love to quilt.

    Thanks for the opportunity to win!

    ReplyDelete
  89. I love all parts of quilting, but my absolute favorite is hand sewing on bindings. I find it very relaxing and it means the quilt is almost ready to use! :)

    ReplyDelete
  90. Well got to admit the best part is getting an idea and then shopping for the fabrics for it! Least amont of work! But do like the rest of it too, its supposed to be fun not work and most of the time is. So many great fabrics out now, too much to choose from. Love the book, thanks for the chance.

    ReplyDelete
  91. I think my favorite part of quilting is the variety. When I tire of cutting I can sit and piece for a while and then quilt if piecing begins to wear on me. That's why I have several projects going at once in various stages of development! I love Moda and would love to be entered in the giveaway!

    ReplyDelete
  92. My favorite part of quilting is the finished product - the steps leading up to the finish are necessary but the finished product is the best!!

    ReplyDelete
  93. My favorite part of quilting is how on the days my body allows me to sew, the very second I walk into my sewing room to start working on whatever is on the agenda that day, or fondle a new fabric, or just absorb myself in looking at patterns, every trouble, all the stress of life, everything that has to do with the Scleroderma that has taken up residence in my body...is forgotten. I completely relax and I never look at a clock, nor worry about time. I don't need pain meds, or meds to settle down the battle going on inside me. I just pull out parts of my meager stash (I've only been quilting 4 years, since I lost the ability to do the intricate handwork I loved so much)) and dream of projects I will do with the fabrics I have. It is my refuge from the little vicissitudes of life as I know it and I love every thing about it. Big hugs and I have to wish good luck to everyone because we are all hoping and to win some of this wonderful quilting treasure and no matter who it goes to, it will bring some "Happy" with it! Thanks for the chance. Big Hugs...

    ReplyDelete
  94. I like to pick my next pattern and the fabrics, but I love using my sewing machine! Guiding the pieces through gives me peace and satisfaction.

    ReplyDelete
  95. I love getting to see the recipient's reaction. Most recently was my 3 year old who received her quilt that had been in progress for 2 years. She was ecstatic!

    ReplyDelete

    ReplyDelete

    ReplyDelete

    ReplyDelete

  104. My favorite part of the quilting is the actual quiltting itself, that too I love free-motion quilt. I could just do that for all day :-).

    Love these candies from Moda.

    ReplyDelete
  105. Difficult to say what I like most, I think it's because you do so many different things (choosing fabric, a pattern, cutting, sewing, quilting) that I like quilting. I like everything! Okay, except sandwiching.

    ReplyDelete
  106. My favorite part of quilting is planning what I'm going to make and buying the fabric.

    ReplyDelete
  107. My favorite part of quilting is the "done" part. I like playing with the fabric, cutting & piecing, everything but the sandwich. But when you put the last stitch in the binding, pull it out of the dryer, smooth it out so you can see the whole thing DONE. What a feeling of accomplishment and satisfaction.

    ReplyDelete
  108. My favorite part of quilting is shopping for the fabric! I'm a newer quilter and haven't had the opportunity to buy much beyond what I need for the current project. I also love the part where I get to gift the quilt to someone!

    Thanks for the opportunity to win!

    ReplyDelete
  109. My favorite part is cutting out and sewing that first block. Such anticipation.

    ReplyDelete

    ReplyDelete
  111. I know this is a bit weird...but I really love hand stitching the binding on after attaching to the front. It's when I can curl up in the chair and be quiet.

    ReplyDelete
  112. I like looking for just the right fabrics for a project & then enjoy the piecing, too. I just made Speck by Miss Rosie & am anxious to get some more candy charms so I can make another one.

    ReplyDelete

    ReplyDelete
  116. I think my favorite part of the quilting process is picking out the fabric and then watching it turn into what I hoped it would be!!!!

    ReplyDelete
  117. My favorite part of quilting is choosing which fabrics will enjoy getting together to grace my new project. I would like to design them someday as I really love changing the colors around and I see the difference each color makes. The new project is always a huge draw. I'm excited to see the new Moda Candy packs, too.

    ReplyDelete
  118. Great compilation of projects. Thank you for all the work putting it together! And those muffins look yum! My favourite part is definitely quilting the top - I have far too many completed quilt tops waiting to be finished!

    ReplyDelete
  119. My favorite part of quilting is picking out the fabric.

    ReplyDelete
  120. Those muffins look yummy. Thank you for the recipe. I look forward to making them.

    I really enjoy all phases of quilting, but I really like to "celebrate" finishes. So, I'll say the finishing is the best.

  121. My favorite part of quilting has to be selecting the fabric for a quilt idea. I love to be in a quilt shop--feeling the fabric, mixing colors, talking with others about choices--just to be "transported" from the everyday.

    Thanks for organizing the blog hop. I look forward to adding Sweet Celebrations to my library.

    ReplyDelete
  130. I enjoy the planning first, what fabric to use with what pattern, will we change the pattern?

    ReplyDelete
  131. I love the whole process, from choosing a pattern, then fabric, then piecing, and finally quilting. It is really an accomplishment to make a quilt from start to finish.

    ReplyDelete
  132. I love hand applique. Thanks for the giveaway!

    ReplyDelete
  136. I really really like the piecing, and the ironing/pressing, but the best is the binding! :)

    ReplyDelete
  137. Finishing a block - they always look so darn cute! Of course the planning and buying fabric part is fun too!

    ReplyDelete
  138. I really enjoy each part of quilting, but when I am hand stitching the binding on and finally seeing the finished quilt is probably my favorite part. Thank you for the chance to win a copy of this book. I have the first one and I plan on adding this book to my library. :-)

    ReplyDelete
  139. My favorite part is probably making the blocks and seeing it all come together. Second favorite is finishing the binding, because that means I'm finally done!

    ReplyDelete
  140. The handwork, whether that's stitching down the binding or hand quilting (which I don't do that often). Thanks for chance to win! (EMAIL: marshudson at comcast dot net)

    ReplyDelete
  141. My favorite part of quilting is the planning - letting fabric or a quilt pattern speak to me and tell me how it wants to look when I'm done. (Oh who am I kidding - I truly love ALL aspects of quilting!)

    joanoh at cinci dot rr dot com

    ReplyDelete
  142. I enjoy making the blocks but my favorite part is looking at the finished quilt as I feel it's quite an accomplishment. Thanks for the chance to win.

    ReplyDelete
  143. Choosing designs and fabrics. I am still working on my first ever quilt but I already have fabrics and designs coming out of my ears. I am sure I will never live long enough to make all the things I am inspired by in my lifetime

    ReplyDelete
  144. My favorite part is designing my own patterns. While I love to use other people's patterns, I like to design my own when the quilt is going to a special person. I think it makes it more of a personal gift when my creativity goes into the whole project. I draw the line at making my own thread & fabric though. Gotta get real at some point.
