My Social Calender for January - FULL :)

If someone had told me on 12/31/2008 that by 2011 I'd have over 20 project tutorials on a new website {Moda Bakeshop}, written 600 blog posts, had quilt patterns in 8 magazines.
I'd have laughed in their face.

Although I have worked hard to accomplish this in the last 2 years...
I owe most of my success to Moda.
They are idea machines.
Lissa A. in particular. She's a rock star to me.
Once again she has created a wonderful new blog tour of sorts.
Moda's Progressive Dinner.
I am just one of many designers that will be featured during 'dinner'.
Some of my blogging buddies will be there too ;)
Natalia of Piece n Quilt
Monica of Happy Zombie
and many more.

Please join us on January 19th - 26th for a week of fun and prizes!!

In addition, to the Progressive Dinner for Moda, I have been asked to review a new book that concentrates on using Go! cutter dies for the patterns.
Mix n Match Quilts
I am excited to share this book with you too.
Look for my post on January 18th!

And finally, I can not leave out my own blog tour starting on the 9th!

There are so many great projects coming for Valentine's Day. It's driving me crazy to not show you a sneak peek of what the bloggers have in store for you.
I illuded to the fact that The Fat Quarter Shop will be providing the giveaways for this tour.

Kimberly has graciously given me a $50 gift certificate for one of my readers.
AND there will be $100 gift certificate for a lucky reader that comments on all 7 blog project days!
I sincerely hope you will join me.

That progressive dinner sounds like a lot of fun. I will be sure to check it out. And I really like the idea of a pattern book to use with the GO cutter. Shame shame on me. I haven't used mine yet. Collecting dust for over a year. How sad is that??!? I just don't know where to begin with it. I want to use it, trust me when I say that! But I need direction! I'm not an "out of the box" thinker!

Jocelyn said...

Wow sounds like a fun January for sure! Can't wait :-)

Natalia from Piece N Quilt said...

YAY! Super excited for the rest of this month! :)

I am a newbie to the quilting world, and the ambition of you ladies that quilt to some extent every day blows me away!!

Michele said...

Sounds like lots of fun things are happening.....I can't wait to get started! Congratulations on your success :)

Kasey said...

How do you do it? You accomplished what I hope to do in the next 5 years! I need to get busy.... Congrats on all your success so far. I can't wait for the blog tours!!! They're kind of like shop hops, but I don't have to go out into the cold for them! I've got one of your bakeshop projects at the top of my to-do list once I finish my current project... or maybe when I need a non-computer break from it. Cheers!

Christine M said...
