Sew Mama Sew December Giveaway

Hi Everyone!  Welcome to one of my favorite events of the year. Twice each year, in December and May there is a huge giveaway link up sponsored by Sew Mama Sew. It is a fun way to check out blogs you may not otherwise have read. If you have not checked out the giveaway yet , I encourage you to do so. So many craft bloggers have linked up and there are all sorts of prizes to be won.

If this is your first time visiting Needle and Foot, welcome! I hope you will take a minute to look around my site.  I have been blogging for approximately 18 months and have made so many friends via this blog and the others that I follow. To learn more about me, click on the About Me page at the top of your screen. I  have many of my quilts displayed in the Quilt Gallery page (also at the top of the page). If you would like to read the blog post associated with a particular quilt, click the title showing just below the picture.  I love blogging and sewing and spend most of my time with one or the other. Comments and questions are always welcome and I try to answer each one. (With the exception of this particular post – I won’t be able to answer each comment on this post. I hope you understand!)

On to the giveaway.  I have two giveaways to offer.  (Before I get to far into it, I want to be sure to tell you that I will be shipping within the United States only. I apologize but it is fairly expensive to ship outside of the US.)

The first is a holiday table runner that I made. It measures approximately 40 x 14″.  The center of the runner is a pieced stripe of various Christmas prints. The various fabrics feature holiday ornaments, poinsettias, and holly. The color scheme is green, red, cream and gold. Along the length of the center strip is a border of dark cream and gold fabric. Next to that is a deep red border.


The backing fabric and binding are the same deep red, gold and green print. I quilted this table runner on my home machine by stitching the length of the table runner at various widths. I would love to give it to one of you!


The second giveaway is a holiday banner, or bunting. The flags are double-sided so it looks nice where ever it is hung. Across the top is red ribbon with an extra length left at each end t give you some flexibility when you decide where to hang it. These buntings are a fun holiday decoration and I would love to send it off to one of you!


I used traditional colors and many of the fabrics have a vintage look to them.


.Each flag measures 6″ across the top and is 9″ in length (down to the point of the flag). The entire banner measures 80″ in length from first flag to last. There is 20″ of ribbon hanging freely to use to hang it. To make this, I cut the triangle shapes and fused them together with Wonder Under. I topstitched the perimeter to add strength to the flags.( I don’t think it will do well in the washer. I would just spot clean the flags as necessary. )

OK – Here is how you enter to win one of these giveaways!  Please leave me a comment  describing the best (or favorite) gift you have ever given or received. It can be either one. I am looking forward to reading your memories!  If you follow me, you get an extra entry. Just comment and let me know how you follow. The giveaway will be open through Sunday, December 13th. I will pull two winners on Monday morning. Be sure that you are not a no-reply blogger (if you like, you could leave your email address in the comment.)

Thank you so much for stopping by! I wish you luck with all of the giveaways this week. I hope you have enjoyed looking around my blog and invite you to follow me via Bloglovin or sign up to receive posts in your email. (Rest assured that your email address is never shared or used for purposes other than to send you blog posts.) Both links are on the right at the top of the page.  For a little more fun, follow me on Instagram. I am @kringelb.


Again, thank you for visiting. I am wishing each of you a fabulous holiday season, whichever way you choose to celebrate.


Sew Mama Sew Giveaway Day

Hello and welcome to Needle and Foot. As you probably know, today is the spring giveaway day for Sew Mama Sew. I love these events. It’s a great way to meet lots of bloggers that I might not have come across otherwise. I know that you are likely hopping from one blog to the next today, checking out the giveaways — so I will be brief!

Having been quilting fanatically for the past three years, I started this blog last summer to further immerse myself in the quilting community. I have a passion for all fabric and lately have been on the hunt for vintage fabric. If you would like to learn more about me, check out my “About” page up at the top of my site.  I have pictures of my finished projects available for you on the “Quilt Gallery” page; the link is at the top. To get to know what I am all about, you might like to read some of my more popular posts written over the past ten months that I have been blogging. I hope you will enjoy taking a peek at my world and that I get a chance to get to know you through your comments.

Holiday Giveaway

I am so excited!  Today starts the Giveaway Day sponsored by Sew Mama Sew. I have followed the Sew Mama Sew website for quite a long while. Twice each year they host a blogger giveaway. This is an event where bloggers will link up with a treat to give to one lucky winner. It is a way for bloggers to meet new readers and readers to discover some fun, new blogs. There will be so many giveaways to enter this week. It is really a lot of fun to check out all of the blogs and you just might win something. Many of the people linking to this giveaway will either have a handmade item or will be giving some sort of supplies having to do with sewing – might be buttons, fabric or a pattern.

In keeping with the  spirit of the holidays and the kind, quilty bloggers, I wanted to join in and provide a treat to a lucky reader. I started this blog last summer and have been so fortunate to have met many on-line friends. It has been a great to get to know others that are involved in this quilting/crafting/sewing corner of the blogosphere. I have been inspired by the work of many and have learned much more than I had hoped.  In thanks, I put together a little basket of treats.

If this is your first time popping over to Needle and Foot, welcome! I am a stay at home mom with a love of sewing. I work on quilts, small and large, as well as sewing some garments and bags. I love sharing what I am working on and learning what others are doing. Take a minute and check out a few posts. Hopefully you will enjoy your time here.

On to the giveaway! First of all, there is a set of eleven 3″ x 30″ (approximately) strips in vibrant colors. I had purchased a grab bag of strips and this set was part of that bag. Perfect for an upcoming project when you want to brighten up a dreary winter afternoon.


I don’t know what line(s) these pieces are from as the selvedges were removed when I got these but they work together well.  POST UPDATE:  According to Barb at Mountain Quiltworks these are from Kate Spain’s line called Terrain. Thank you Barb!!


I added a few holiday prints from my stash. They are roughly fat quarter size (18″ x 22″). It might be just the thing for a last minute holiday project.


Always nice to add a bit of fabric to your stash.


I’ve added a few fun treats to the basket as well.


No, I didn’t make the ornament. 🙂 It is so cute though and would be such a simple project.


Be sure to take a look at all of the fun giveaways on the Sew Mama Sew website. Check out a few blogs and meet somebody new! All giveaways, including this one, will be open for the entire week. I will pick the winner of this basket on Saturday, December 13th. The winner will be contacted via email and also announced on a later post.

So here is the deal – to be eligible for this cute little holiday basket all you have to do is leave a comment – just three words – that tells me the following:

“Three words that come to mind first when I think of the Holidays are:”

I apologize to any international readers but my budget doesn’t allow for shipping outside the US. Thanks for playing along! I am looking forward to reading your comments. Enjoy this giveaway and so many more over at Sew Mama Sew.

Update:  The giveaway is now closed.  At random, my daughter chose number 48 as the winner. We are very scientific here – I told her to pick a number between 1 and 137. Congrats to Mara. I emailed you and need your address please.  Happy Holidays everyone!
