Needle & Foot Blog Hop Celebration

Happy Spring!   And....

Welcome to my stop on the Needle & Foot Blog Hop Celebration!




I have known Bernie through her blog Needle and Foot for more than a year now. 
So when she asked if I would help to announce her exciting new venture into selling fabrics on Etsy -
Oh course I was on board!




She generously let me choose some gorgeous Maureen Cracknell Garden Dreamer fat quarters from her shop to play with.  I am such a huge fan!



I decided to use these beauties to quilt along with Maureen and Sharon in the Sewcial Bee Sampler Sew Along.  We are already up to block 7.  Aren't they pretty all together?




Here is one of my favorite blocks.  The bee fabric is such a great one to fussy cut.




This is the last block design to get released.  I love this block too.  It really displays these beautiful fabrics so much.



Color Weave Textured Solids, Fat Quarter Bundle by P & B Textiles



Bernie has done a great job putting together fabric choices that will appeal to a lot of quilters.  I have to admit I love these soft color weave bundles she has listed.  So very perfect for Easter.


I hope you go take a look at her shop.  If you see something there you like, here is a discount code to use through Sunday 3/26.  It will give you 15% off any order of $5.00 or more.


Just use: 

NANDFREADERS15






And what is a blog hop celebration without a fun giveaway.  Bernie is graciously offering one of my readers a choice of either 6 fat quarters or 3 half-yard cuts. Woo Hoo!

And just how do you enter? 

Entry #1 - Head to Bernie's etsy site and come back and tell me something you liked.  There is a whole lot to choose from!

Entry #2 - Follow Needle and Foot either through her Blog, Etsy or Instagram.  Just leave a comment letting me know how you follow along.

I will choose a winner using a random number generator.  The giveaway will be closed at Midnight on Sunday March 26th.  If you live outside the US, you can still win but you need to be willing to pay half of the shipping costs.  And please be sure I can contact you - if you are not sure if you are a no-reply, be sure and leave your email in at least one of your comments.  Good luck Everyone!

Sorry - This giveaway is closed!


Psst....The blog hop is going on all week.  So feel free to visit other bloggers to see what they made and maybe enter their giveaways.  Here is the list.

Monday March 20th         Cheryl at Meadow Mist Designs

Tuesday March 21st         The party is here!

Wednesday March 22nd   Jayne at Twiggy and Opal and Kitty at Night Quilter

Wow, what's not to like? But if I need to pick favorites, I'd choose "Modern Tyke" fat quarter bundle by Kim and Kelly Diehl for Henry Glass and also the fat quarter bundle of "Basically Low" by Helen Stubbings for Red Rooster. I could definitely see myself cutting into these right away!

Sherry VF said...

I like that Needle & Foot has a section for blender fabrics. Also, I was stunned at the number of French press coffee cozies and some other coffee pot that I'd never heard of. I don't know anyone that owns either of these but they must be popular in CA. sjvonfumetti at yahoo dot com

I favorited her shop on Etsy because I love her taste in fabric! So many fun, gender-neutral options - no way I could pick just one, or two, or five.

Holly U said...

I also like the shop on Facebook.

Amy said...

The Gossamer line by Sharon Holland looks like it blends beautifully with Penny Sturges' Mochachino line. Bernie's French Press pattern would be perfect done up in either line, or a combination of both.

There are a lot of nice fabrics in the Etsy store. It is hard to choose just one item. I just noticed on her website that she is in Grass Valley. Frequented there a lot when my parents lived there. Nice town.

Lisa Marie said...

I have been on a quest to find interesting low volume prints for scrappy backgrounds lately, so the first thing that caught my eye in Bernie's shop was Mesh Joy - Gossamer by Sharon Holland for Art Gallery Fabric. That's one I haven't seen before.
