Would you like some Echo? Giveaway Day begins.


That is a picture of Lotta Jansdotter and her fabric line, Echo which I copied from the Windham Fabrics webpage. You can read about her here at Windham Fabrics. 

My name is Leanne and welcome to my fabric giveaway for the Sew Mama Sew Giveaway Day.  I hope you will take a minute to look around my blog, where I chronicle my quilting and sewing adventures. You do not need to be a follower to enter this giveaway but if you like what you see, I hope you will join in and follow along. 


This giveaway is for a fat quarter bundle of all 16 of the fabrics in the Echo line by Lotta Jansdotter. The image above is from the Fabricworm website - where I purchased the bundle. (The bundle is still in transit, I will edit this with a picture of it here when it arrives.)

If you would like to enter to win this fabric bundle, you need to leave me a comment on this post. Only one comment per person, please (I will remove extra ones). Let me know your favourite holiday treats - cookies, cakes, squares, or whatever. I will be baking this week and would love some new ideas.

I will draw a random winner after 6 pm on Friday December 16, 2011. If you have not attached an email to your profile, please leave it in the comment. If there is no way to contact you, I will draw again immediately. I am happy to ship anywhere in the world from my home in Canada.

Edited to add: Already I have a bunch of "no-reply" comments. Please add your email to your comment if you are not certain your email address is attached to your profile. If I cannot reach you and you are the winner, I will draw again.

I am also giving away a 241 Tote, so if you have not entered that contest, please click here to do that now. And click the button to go back to Sew Mama Sew so you can enter the rest of the give aways.

Thank you everyone, this giveaway is now closed. The winner is Rachael!



Enjoy the contest hopping!

Best,

Leanne

  1. Lovely giveaway, Leanne! I was just sitting down to try and start a list for my holiday baking, too. I'll have to come back here for more ideas. I love those chocolate crinkle cookies and chewy ginger-molasses cookies. Well, pretty much any treat really! Thanks!

    Happy baking to you!

  9. Cookies! My mom makes the BEST Christmas cookies.

  10. With multiple food allergies, it's difficult to bake. These heart pops are somewhat acceptable and are very easy to make.
    Not sure what to call them - you can see a great photo on my blog.
    You take two small candy canes and pace them on a wax paper-lined cookie sheet. Place a lollipop stick in the middle. Fill with melted chocolate to join and sprinkle with decorative sprinkles.

    ReplyDelete
  16. My favourite Christmas treat, well, in our house we never seemed to get through the christmas cake fast enough (mum made whoppers!) so dad made "Christmas cake pudding" which is just a chunky big slice of christmas cake crumbled into a bowl with some grated apple, some banana & grapes, some chopped nuts, and mixed altogether with strawberry yoghurt. Trust me, its delish... And with all the fruit, nuts and yoghurt you feel really pleased with yourself eating it after all the usual fatty sugary christmas food. (just forget there's a whopping bit of cake in it...)

    ReplyDelete

  81. Yippee! What a lovely giveaway! I like to make caramels each Christmas. Last year I added chocolate caramels to the mix and this year I'm going with a caramel-esque cinnamon candy (maybe more like a Hot Tamale or cinnamon bear). Also, peppermint bark is easy and delish! Happy baking. Thanks!

    ReplyDelete
  82. What a great question! I had to locate my mom's 1964 edition of the Joy of Cooking to find it - they're called Cocoa Kisses. They're basically flavored meringues:

    Preheat oven to 250F (120/130C)

    Sift 1 cup sugar

    Whip until stiff but not dry:
    - 3 egg whites
    - 1/8 tsp. salt

    Gradually add 1/2 sugar.

    Combine:
    - 2 tsp. water
    - 1 tsp. vanilla

    Add the liquid, a few drops at a time, alternately with the remaining sugar. Whip constantly.

    Fold in:
    -3 tablespoons cocoa
    (note: you can also add 1/2-1 cup chopped pecans at this point, but I don't)

    Drop the batter from a spoon onto a lightly greased tin and shape into cones. Bake until the kisses are partly dry and retain their shape. Remove from the pan while hot.

    This Christmas I will be opening my bottle of damson gin - luckily my husband doesn't like it so it's all for me!!

    ReplyDelete
  101. For some reason I end up being the person everyone else gets to sample their holiday baked goods... without ever having to make any myself! Thanksgiving I go crazy, but Christmas baking is virtually non-existent for me. Last year my sister made these buttery, toffee-ish, pecan bars that were to DIE for. I'm hoping she makes another batch for me to sample this year!

  121. Hi Leanne - so glad to have found you! My favourite treat is Apple Crumble, I realise it's not actually christmassy but it's SO good!! There's something so warm and homely about it :) Although it's not technically baking I also love me some mulled wine!

    ReplyDelete
  122. OOO! The Lotta Jansdotter fabric is on my Christmas wish list! I love it!

    My favorite "quicky" Christmas treat are "poor man's turtles": cover a cookie sheet with parchment or foil (preheat oven to 350). Place pretzel "butter snaps" (the small squares with grids across them) on the sheet and top with an unwrapped rolo (it's great if you have kids- they can unwrap them all!). Bake in the oven for 5-8 minutes. Let cool for a minute and top with a pecan half (or an M&M or any other yummy thing to press into the top). Smush it down a little so the melted rolo "bonds" everything together. Let cool (in teh fridge if you're in a hurry) and enjoy!

    You can also use a hershey kiss instead of a rolo.

    Have fun!

    ReplyDelete
  123. Wow - that would be an amazing bundle of fabric to win! My favorite holiday treat is iced gingersnap cookies. We roll out the dough and cut it into fun Christmas shapes, too. Yum.

  127. Amazing giveaway, Leanne! I would be sitting the corner hoarding all of that loveliness for myself!!

    We have all sorts of Christmas food traditions bu my favourite is making gingerbread cookies in all sorts of shapes and then decorating them with royal icing with the girls. I did it with my brothers when I was growing up and the tradition continues. It is an integral part of our holidays.

    ReplyDelete
  131. I just died of excitement - that whole line is right at the top of my Christmas list! My favorite holiday treat is Christmas pudding (I eat it for breakfast!) but I only have a second-rate recipe, my mam makes the best ones... If I'm lucky, she even mails me some for the years that I can't get home - I live 4000 miles away.

    ReplyDelete
  132. What an incredible giveaway! Thank you! This is one of my absolute favorite new fabric lines. Thanks for the chance!

    ReplyDelete
  133. Hmm... favorite holiday treat? I actually don't do a ton of sweet-eating during the holidays. I don't have a ton of time to bake anymore, and dislike the overly sweet stuff sold in stores.

    However, I do have a consistent weakness for anything with toffee in it.

    ReplyDelete
  134. Oooh! Lovely! I actually don't do any of the Christmas baking in my family... my husband does! But my favorite thing he makes is chocolate cookies with peppermint chips. Very Christmas-y!

  136. Thank you for such a generous giveaway! My favorite Christmas treat is a sicilian cookie called cucidati. It's a half moon shaped cookie with a ground fig/date/raisin filling. They're so tasty! I'm hoping that we'll make them again this year.
