Sweet Celebrations
 with the Moda Bake Shop Chefs
 (and a giveaway!)

Alright people, I’ve got news. Big news. See that really cute book up there? It’s the second Moda Bake Shop book! I’m super excited about it because I loved the first Bake Shop book, but I’m even more excited because I got to contribute to it! It’s been almost a year since I submitted proposals and started sewing, and now, finally, finally, I can tell you about it!

The premise of the book is really fun. It’s all centered around holidays and celebrations, with tons of unique projects for every season and every party. It comes out this fall (October) and I can’t wait to show you more! I’d love to show you my projects, but that’s still a surprise–so instead, you get to guess what I made! Or rather, you get to guess which holiday my project is for.

And believe me, you want to guess, because here’s what’s in it for you. A Junior Jelly Roll of Simply Color Ombre strips–part of my sweet friend Vanessa Christenson’s debut line with Moda. You really, really, want to get your hands on some of this. It’s fabulous I tell you. (And if you don’t win, you can buy it in October).

So. Make a comment telling me what holiday you think my project is for. I’ll give you a hint: I’ve blogged about celebrating it here in my home. Then, tell your friends to guess too, because if there are more than 100 guesses, I’ll throw another prize into the mix.

Like I said, you’re going to want to tell your friends. Blog about it, Facebook it, Tweet it, whatever you have to do. ‘Cause you really want a chance at this Fat Eighth Bundle of Marmalade by Bonnie and Camille for Moda. If there aren’t a hundred entries, well, I’m going to keep it for myself (orange fabric!) and you’ll be the sad, sad, person waiting until October to get your hands on it.

Guess away my friends! (I’m so excited for this book, and these fabrics! October is going to be awesome!)


PS You have until next Tuesday, July 31st at 11:59pm MST to enter.

EDIT: Contest closes Sunday, August 5th at 11:59pm MST.

I’m going to wait a few more days to draw winners–because I realized, I already have my own bundle of Marmalade! This one is for you guys! That gives you plenty of time to spam everyone you know into entering. ;) Winner(s) will be announced Monday, August 6th. One entry per person, please. Good luck!
PPS Did you see my post yesterday? You really should hang out with me on Instagram. Fun times.

    Lynnette says:

    Well since I kind of already know it wouldn’t be right to just blurt it out now would it. So I’m hoping my comment still counts for the drawing and that I get bonus points (or an extra chance in the drawing) for keeping it totally to myself all these months – which by the way has not been easy to do because I’m so excited about your project and the book and everything you do!!! Congrats, can hardly wait to see it.

    P.S. For those of us that don’t have the fancy tech gadget you do how can we keep up on the latest? Instagram????
