Sweet Celebrations Book Tour!


As we've talked about before we were so excited that we were asked to be part of Moda's newest book, Sweet Celebrations.  It's such a great collaboration of sewing projects for all of life's happy events!


Can't wait to hold my first copy!  ....keep reading because we have a fun GIVEAWAY at the end!


Here's a little bit of eye candy.  The pillow below Heather made, so cute right?  You can slide little candies and gifts into the pockets.



This little mailbox I created along with the party hats.  Can't wait for my boy's to use the mailbox this Valentine's, they both really love mailboxes for some reason, lol.  The party hats are fun because the age/number is removable thus reusable!


Here's a few fun questions from Oda May to get to know us a little better.

What is your favorite birthday memory?
Megan writing :)  When I was 18 my three best friends spent the night, my parents were out of town and we made music videos all night long.  Including me starring as Britney Spears.  I love to re-watch that old VHS tape.

Do you prefer to celebrate with cake pops, cupcakes or plain ole cake?
Ice cream cake, hands down.

If you could have a quilt shop spree what items would you snag off the shelf?
Precuts, batting, notions, minky...everything?

Love to quilt---anything! Would love to be entered in the giveaway!

Stitches said...

Right now, I enjoy smaller projects, doll quilts or baby quilts..

Shera Cookston said...

I LOVE small projects like table toppers and table runners. I'm MUCH better at getting them finished than I am at getting BIG projects finished. I usually have many projects going all at once! The book looks GREAT, can't wait to get a copy!!

Gina Koston said...

I would love to have this book!
My favorite projects to sew are quilts. I absolutely LOVE making quilts. But I also love making pillows and handbags/totes.

Samantha said...

I love making anything for those I love! Currently I am in the midst of making doll quilts for my daughters :)

B Greene said...

Quilts, quilts, and more quilts!

Judy1522 said...

My current favorite projects are making lap size quilts.

teachpany said...

I have sewn everything from doll clothes to wedding gowns, pajamas to alterations for a dry cleaner. My favorite, though is making a quilt. There is just something relaxing and fun about it. Although seeing my school play costumes on the award show on TV was a lot of fun, too.

Julie said...

I love to make a baby quilt~

Carol said...

I do like making quilts, but I also love a smaller project like a purse or place mats.

Kathy said...

I love to make quilts for my little girls and my family members. It is something they can cherish for years to come.

Kay said...

I've been making a lot of Schnibbles lately, but am ready to work on something bigger. My son wants a queen size quilt for Christmas, so I have to get to working on it.

CJ said...

My favorite sewing project is probably a baby quilt. I get to use pretty fabrics, the quilt goes together quickly and I can have instant gratification and then it is on to something new! Fortunately there are LOTS of babies being born into our church family. :)

Wendy B said...

Any sewing project I finish is a good one! Loving the quick and easy to complete ones at the moment but have a couple of quilts to 'quilt' sitting there waiting....they're always satisfying!

Wendy :O) xox

Lyn said...

I like making smaller projects...pillows, wallhangings, etc...that I have a realistic chance of finishing! :-)

tpott said...

Recently I've started to make seasonal table runners for myself and as gifts. They're quick and easy most can be done with a charm and some backing. I also love to make baby quilts, I just finished my last 2 weeks ago. ;-> Toni Anne

Kathie said...

I love making things for my adult children; especially when they like it :-)! So far my quilts have been a hit.

Sara said...

I'm going to be silly and say "Whatever I am currently working on ... except mending!" I just love working on whatever project strikes me.

Barb in Mi said...

I love to make baby or lap quilts; not too big of a project and you still make somebody pretty happy! Thanks for a chance!

Sherry said...

This book looks fabulous. It is so hard to decide what my favorite type of project is. I love to put my quilt tops together, I just completed one last week and it was so fun to see it completed. I also love to sew bags and pincushions.

Sarina said...

My favorite project is a finished one! ;) I don't really have a favorite. I love baby/toddler quilts, bags, EASY clothes (no buttons or zippers), it all depends on my mood.

Table runners or toppers have to be my favorites - a charm pack is big enough, there's room for some interesting piecing, but it doesn't take too long to finish.

I seem to have lost my mojo, so at the moment I'd say bags or girl's dresses as these are the only things that are getting any attention!

Stitched by St├ęphanie said...

My favorite sewing project is making a baby quilt. It's always so fast and I can choose fabrics I wouldn't pick normally for my decor. I love that I can easily experiment with free-motion quilting on a small scale quilt like a baby size one.

Deborah said...

I love making lap quilts! They are good gifts that can show off favorite fabrics, but don't take to long to make. Instant gratification is what I like!

Kat said...

I'm still not sure of my favourite projects as I'm still a newbie! I love the quick gratification projects at the moment!

Bernie said...

Lap size quilts allow me to finish the quilt before begin to lose interest and start planning the next quilt. I guess I'm into instant gratification because I also love to do placemats.

Currently my favorite sewing projects are those that bring joy to my granddaughters' faces, things like twirly skirts, doll clothes, pillows, etc. They won't want homemade clothes much longer, so I'm busy piecing tops and will quilt them when the girls are older.
