Welcome Moda Blog Hoppers!

Today is my day to share my quilt block and recipe for the Moda Blog Hop, but before I do, I want to show you a picture of my new Bed Runner that is appearing in Quilt Magazine this month! 


I wasn't going to blog about it until next week, because the magazine won't be available until then, but I got permission to give you a sneek peek.  (This is only part of the article)  They did a fabulous job on the feature and I just couldn't resist sharing.  

The Bed Runner is called Spring Fling and is made with RUBY charm squares.




I rarely do kits, but we do have the kit for Spring Fling available now on our web site.  We have also just added Ruby Charm Squares!



Now down to business, this Moda Blog Hop is our way of saying "Thank you" to all of you and to give each of you a gift from each of us. 



Just let me say, from the bottom of my heart, I so APPRECIATE the wonderful words of encouragement and kindness you give.  They really mean a lot!


My block is called Raspberry Jelly and is very simple.  You can download the instructions and the recipe here.  It would be quick and easy to stitch a few blocks together to make a hand made gift for someone you love this Christmas. 

 
My recipe is one of my favorite cakes.  It is called Very Fat Fudge Cake and is worth every calorie, besides we don't count calories at our house in December.  It's just not allowed.


I love it with pecans, but if you would rather, you can sprinkle it with mini choclate chips, coconut or toffee bits.  They are ALL good!

And last of all, one more gift for a lucky winner.
A kit for the Spring Fling Bed Runner!

Leave a comment telling me what your favorite Christmas word is this year. 
Mine is Joy.

I will announce the winner on December 13th.
Don't forget to hop on over and visit these lovely ladies today...

I hope each of you enjoy this special time of year with family and friends and take a minute to celebrate the real reason for the season.
Find Joy in your lives,
 Bonnie

  3. My word is "grace." We should never forget that we have the grace of God through Christ.

  4. I don't mean to sound like a copycat, but I picked out my Christmas cards the other day and JOY is the only word on the front. Later that evening I was babysitting my grandsons, age 3 & 1, and was teaching them the song, "Joy, Joy, Joy down in my heart". We decided that was a good Christmas song!

    Your cake looks delicious and fairly simple. I never see a bundt cake and not think of one of my favorite movies, My Big Fat Greek Wedding.

    I love your bed runners....what a beauty!!

  16. Mine is "Crazy-Mess." It's what my toddler--the youngest of nine-- says as she looks around the house at the decorations and the signs of crafting. It took awhile for me not to be a little concerned and maybe insulted. Then, I realized that she is saying "Christmas." But I'll never hear it quite the same way again:-).

    ReplyDelete
  17. My favorite Christmas word is love...it's all about love for family and friends, love for your neighbours, love for your community, and on and on...which we see all around us over the holidays...with the sharing of gifts, the sharing of meals, and the sharing of time... I "love" Christmas!
