Christmas Caroling Row Along - Jingle Bells

Hi!  Welcome to Masterpiece Quilting! 
I'm Nancy Scott & I'm excited to part of this elite group of bloggers bringing you the Christmas Caroling Row Along.  

One of my favorite Christmas Carols is Jingle Bells - so I used it as the theme for my row. 

I was inspired by the traditional seasonal look of evergreen swags laden with jingle bells attached by big red bows.  I used raw edge fusible applique to construct my row which measures 10" tall x 30" long. It would work perfect as a wall hanging, table runner or mantle piece.  The pattern for my  
Jingle Bells Row  is available on Craftsy for $5.00.  

Because I was having so much fun with my row,

I designed an entire quilt with my Jingle Bell row as the outer border!

The pattern for my Jingle Bells Quilt is available on Craftsy
at an introductory price of $5.95 for the pdf download
through October 31, 2017.   

And what's a blog without giveaways! I'm pleased to have Anita Goodesign, Calibre Arts and Northcott Fabrics sponsoring these giveaways!

Most of the giveaways are international shipping this year in some cases, you will be asked to pay for shipping your giveaways.

I am not rich and I do not ask sponsors for money, they provide prizes only. If they shipped the prize to me, you will be asked to pay for shipping. All giveaways will be shipped that are in my home within 48 hours of my having heard from you.

An invoice will be sent to you via Paypal, and shipping will take place via Paypal, so your Paypal email will be needed to send the invoice. You will receive a tracking number except for overseas shipments. All shipping will either be first class which averages out at 2.77 to 4.00 up to 13 ounces. Paypal fees are added to that amount to cover that fee. All fabric bundles from Michael Miller, Hoffman, and Moda will be shipped via Priority Mail to protect the fabric itself.

Please note, every effort is made to protect the prizes. They go into a plastic bin when I receive them, and it is covered by an air tight cover. I have a dog in my home and I have a smoker in my home, so I do everything possible to protect the prizes.

Most companies are very good about getting prizes off to customers quickly also, but some companies are overseas, so please allow all sponsors a 2-week time period before you report to me that you still haven’t received your prize. When the company is overseas, it can take 6 weeks to 90 days for an item to also arrive.

Whether or not you read the above, the rules for giveaways are in place to protect everyone. I do not want to hear you didn’t read them, they will be posted on my blog daily during each featured day. There is no excuse for not reading them.
