Progressive Dinner


Welcome to Moda Bake Shop and Stash Book's Progressive Dinner! We are celebrating the upcoming release of a new book called Fresh Fabric Treats. It's a book filled with 16 great patterns for using pre-cuts. The patterns are designed by Moda Bake Shop chefs. (hey, that includes me!)

If you are new here, let me introduce myself....I am Amanda Jean aka Crazy Mom. I have 3 young children and a wonderful, supportive husband. I quilt rather obsessively. I've been at it for 10 years (can it be?) and I love it more every year. I have recently started teaching quilting classes and I love to design my own quilts. A few of my favorite MBS quilts are here, here and here.

Since this is a progressive dinner, here's a little recipe for Stromboli for you. I know it's early in the dinner, so I should be serving up an appetizer, but I'm skipping right to the main course. This is one of my family's favorite meals. Serve it with a green salad and cottage cheese. Oh, and don't forget some marinara sauce for dipping! Yummy for all! We actually had this for dinner last night.

To make Stromboli you will need:
1 loaf frozen bread dough
1/2 lb. sliced ham
1/2 lb. pepperoni
8 oz. shredded Swiss cheese
Parmesan cheese
dried oregano
garlic powder

Let the dough rise according to package directions. Roll out dough on lightly floured surface until it is about 14'' x 18''. Layer the ham and pepperoni on the dough, top with Swiss cheese, sprinkle with Parmesan cheese, oregano and garlic powder. Roll up like a jelly roll and pinch the ends and edges to seal. Bake in a 350 degree oven for 30-35 minutes. Let cool slightly. Slice and eat!

Ok, now let's talk a little more about this book and the prizes!

Here's a sneak peek at a few of the projects that are included....see that quilt on the lower right? That was designed by me! I'm so thrilled to be a part of this book. (It's still hard to believe.) It's fun to finally be able to talk about it!


If you would like a chance to win a copy of the book AND a layer cake (specific fabric line to be determined), please leave a comment here on this post. The book is scheduled to release in late April or early May, so you would receive both prizes at that time.

If you would like a chance to win a fat quarter bundle, a fat eight bundle, jelly roll, layer cake AND a charm pack (over $200 value!), be sure to visit and leave a comment at every author's stop of the progressive dinner.

Here's the schedule:

Roslyn Mirrington of Bloom
Vanessa Christenson of V and Co.

John Adams of Quilt Dad
Monica Solorio-Snow of The Happy Zombie

Michelle in Mass. said...

I just LOVE your blog - discovered it recently, and with only 2 kids (and I work outside the home full time), you inspire me to get back to my sewing/quilting room. No excuses this year! My dear hubby actually made a similar recipe last night for dinner, but if you whisk an egg and brush it on the top of the loaf before baking, it will make a shiny coating. Thanks for the food & quilty inspirations!

Quilt n Queen said...

Your Stromboli sounds yummy and looks like it is easy to make which leaves more time for sewing. I'm just finishing the binding on a coin quilt...luv that quilt...made 3 or 4 already and there will be many more I'm sure. Do luv the Lily and Will you used in your Topsy Turvy Quilt. The 'Fresh Fabric Treats' looks like a must have book. Thanks for the chance to win a copy and a layer cake. That would be a real sweet treat:)
