Book Giveaways & a Podcast

Hello Everyone!
How are you all doing? I hope your summer is going well!

It's been a very busy summer thus far for me with lots of Quilting, Cleaning, Organizing, and Playing. I recently got back on Friday from Church Girl's Camp and have spent the weekend recovering. I'm not quite as limber as I used to be. lol.

Well, It's time for a
Fresh Fabric Treat Book Giveaway and Podcast.

Here are a few pictures I took of the Fresh Fabric Treat Book that was displayed at the C&T Publishing Booth at Quilt Market. It was my first look at the book and it was so fun to finally see it for REALS!!!





About the Book Signing:
To celebrate the debut of Fresh Fabric treats we had a book signing event on Sunday afternoon on the last day of Quilt Market where Stash Books gave away 3 1/2 boxes full of books. It was really fun gathering with a few of the Moda Bake Shop Designers who were able to make the trip to Quilt Market in Salt Lake City this year. Here we are posing for a few pictures while laughing and entertaining the crowd that gathered to get a free signed copy for their stores.



Here's the actual book I'm giving away that I had signed by a few of the designers. I'm sorry that I couldn't get more of the designers to sign it but, not everyone was there at market and some had to leave early before the book signing on Sunday.


Here's a peek at my 1st project in the book.


Here's a look at my 2nd project.



About Podcast #207:
I had the pleasure of meeting Annie Smith from Annie's Quilting Stash at Quilt Market.


Here's how it all happened. I was sitting in the dining area after the book signing just enjoying a Ham and Swiss Cheese Panini with my friend Lori Holt. We were talking about the last few days of quilt market and she was telling me that she was just relaxing and waiting for her next interview with Annie Smith. I thought that was really exciting for Lori to be doing an interview.

It wasn't long before Annie joined our little group that had gathered in the dining area. It was so fun to meet her and to talk with her. One thing led to another and before I knew it she was inviting me to talk with her after Lori and do an interview to promote the new book I'm in called "Fresh Fabric Treats" (make sure to check with your local quilt shoppes to purchase the book).

Annie is delightful! She's a wonderful quilter, appliquer, and designer along with being an amazing blogger and podcaster. You will definitely want to visit her blog often. Her most recent podcast is an interview she did with my friend Lori Holt. It's podcast #206.

The podcast about me and the book is #207. You can link to it here.

Go Check it out!


About the Projects:
I took a few pictures of my projects before packing them up in a box and shipping them off to the publishers for almost a years time. I just got them back a few months before Quilt Market.


I made the "Pack N' Go Tote" with the Quilter in mind. Fill it up with your current projects and take it with you on a road trip or with you to your quilt classes, quilt retreats, or even your monthly quilt meetings.


The "Pack N' Go Tote" holds the following items:

View of Smaller outside pocket with sewing kit in pocket.


View of 8.75" x 11.75" Omnigrid Foldaway
Portable Cutting & Pressing Mat seen in outside pocket


Close-up of Make Life Sewing Kit

This looks like a great book to have. Please enter me in the giveaway.

Grum said...

I listened to the podcast---it was fun to hear your background with Moda Bakeshop----I cried, too---I love to make things for people, it brings such joy to my heart. I only hope that they know how much they mean to me because I've taken the time to sew for them. I have 15 grandchildren---trying to make baby quilts for each of them. The last two got away from me, so they are getting twin-size quilts instead. whew.....
