Summer’s End – Fall Fabric Giveaway

The past three months have to go down collectively as one of the busiest summers of my life.

 Leave a comment to win these fabrics.

On the home front, we’ve had out-of-town guests, significant birthdays, a burgeoning garden, and the usual family gatherings, days at the beach, and the chaos of getting everyone to their respective camps, summer jobs, and so on.

On the Quilting Arts side of life, we’ve prepared two regular issues plus Quilting Arts Gifts and the upcoming International Quilt Festival: Quilt Scene. I can’t believe how hard the team has worked to bring you these fabulous issues.

But suddenly, it seems, it’s time to send my kids back to school. Labor Day is upon us, and my thoughts are turning to fall colors and fabric projects. Although I’m sad to see summer go, I’m looking forward to a more regular schedule and evenings curled up with a handmade quilt and a cup of tea to ward off the chill.

What better time, then, to host a fall fabric giveaway? I have a roll of the aptly named Juggling Summer Zen Chic and a stack of Grand Finale by Sandy Gervais, both from Moda. Just leave a comment about your favorite fall fiber art project or activity. I’ll choose a winner on Wednesday, September 5, 2012.

Good luck!

  4. We’ve just moved into a new home and I need to make some table linens/decorative runners, etc. I haven’t quite figured out exactly what I’m going to do yet, but it would be nice to use this fabric in my new home and break in my sewing/craft room!

  5. I’m always up for a Halloween project for my granddaughters – a throw, stuffed bats, a new witches hat. First Halloween for my newest girl. Better get busy!

  6. I love Autumn leaves— so I’m always drawn to any sewing project that has Autumn leaves in it— quilts, tabletoppers, placemats, aprons, potholders…. hmm– it just occurred to me that my little granddaughter, Clarabel, would look absolutely adorable in a pretty Fall leaf pant suit! 🙂 Gotta get on that! 🙂 Thank you for the chance to win! Those fabric lines are so very pretty!!

  7. I broke my ankle July 25, the day after my hubby $et up my new (to me) quilting
    frame and machine. Today my ca$t wa$ removed and I can FINALLY get back to my machine and quilt the top I made at my quilt guild’ $ “10 minute quilt block” cla$$.
    I can hardly wait!! ((pardon the $ – I have no working e$$ key on my ‘puter!) Thank goodne$$ my login and pa$$word don;t contain any!

  8. In the process of making a quilt with a modern edge for the local grange fair. Then I will donate it to be auctioned off to go to food for families that are having a difficult time feeding their dogs and cats. It is a shame owners are giving up their animals because they can no longer feed them. So sad.

  9. Beautiful fabrics! I know the streets of Heaven are supposed to be paved with gold…but in my heaven, the streets (and everything else) are lined with gorgeous fabric!

  10. What is it about fall colors that says log cabin to me? Something cozy, something to cuddle in, maybe pj bottoms! My mother-in-law loved fall colors. They do so remind me of her.

  11. The favorite thing I look forward too in the fall is the beginning of the NBA basketball season. I like to curl up on the sofa with my favorite lap quilt and yell at the TV when calls are not made right. LOL.. Thanks for a chance to win the lovely fabric.

  12. The projects I find myself doing most in fall are getting winter gear knit or crocheted up for my kids and gifts for the holidays. I would love to be able to make a harvest wallhanging for my entryway this year though.

  13. Fall! My favorite time of year!! Time to get out the hot chocolate and my bags of stitchery. No better time to be working on a warm, snuggly quilt than in the fall and winter months. My best friend from my childhood is expecting her first grandbaby so I am on a mission to make a very memorable quilt for new baby to be. I’m so excited to get started!

  14. With all the heat this summer, “juggling summer zen chick” is what we all had to do to survive!
    So glad that summer is on it’s way out with a “grand finale” Labor Day weekend. Looking forward to the cooler fall weather, and beautiful rolls and stacks of fabric to start new projects.

  15. I’m working on creating 25% of my wardrobe– so I’m learning how to design and sew/knit fun stuff. I’d love to be able to play with your fabrics:)

  16. This summer I gave away a lot of my stash to a local sewing group. At first I enjoyed the more sleek sewing studio, but now I’m thinking I need more stash!!! This would be perfect! I would use it for donation quilts, granny Barb projects, etc.

  17. I am new to quilting and am in love with the idea of being able to make different quilts to reflect the different seasons and use the leftovers for fabric jewelry making.

  18. I am working on a color wheel bargello and some fall table runners. Also planning a quilt for my nephew’s 40th birthday. It will have moose in it to match the rest of his decor.

  19. I know what you mean about fall coming so fast. I have a black walnut tree behind my house, and it’s lost just about all its leaves already! My kids are grown, but my 3 year old grandson is going to pre-school for the first time next week. Such a milestone!

  20. It was 110* at my house today. Waaayyy too hot to be thinking about doing a project on my lap. That’s why I can’t wait for fall weather so I can start quilting again!!! Come on fall colors and cooler weather 🙂

  21. Fall is has always been my favorite season. I will be revving up my sewing in the fall. We were moving, but that did not work out. Now I am unpacking and rearranging. Alot of work, but it has been worth it. Found some things I’d forgotten I had!

  22. I’m just a beginner but this looks like fun fabric to try my hand at making some placemats or pot holders. I think it would be a fun project to make the little coasters that you can fill with cinnamon, etc to set your hot coffee etc on for stocking stuffers!

  23. Thanks so much for the opportunity to win this wonderful fabric. Autum/Fall is a perfect time for me to start quilting projects for Christmas gifts, one of my favorite Fall fiber projects. Have a great day and thanks again.

  24. There’s no better feeling than whipping up some simple quilts to donate using leftover fabric from other projects to “clear the air” and make way for MORE FABRIC!!! 🙂

  25. These are perfect for my September birthday! I am back to work (teaching) and managing to squeeze in some quilts for Christmas gifts. Getting a head start on all my presents!

  26. My grandson’s birthday is coming up soon and we are recreating his bedroom in a “construction” theme. Oh my goodness! Pillows to make, banners to create and all sorts of good things. I retired from teaching two years ago. It’s hard to believe and it’s taken all of this time to get the feeling that I “have” to go back to the classroom out of my system. I’ll get in the groove and do some subbing, but otherwise I’m going to enjoy every minute that life gives me to do what I finally saved all of this up for! This is my time to play!

  27. Wow Bootiful fabric for the fall season. These fabrics would look great in quilts for each of my two grandsons. (20 months and 24 months)Perhaps even a little “trick or treat” bag would be fun and they would enjoy it, too.

  28. Thanks for giving us all a chance to win some really neat additions to our stashes, and thanks for working hard all summer to bring us great ideas in your magazines!

  29. of the many table runners i have made, my daughters don’t seem to have any fall ones! love the new fabrics and colors for this season. Pumpkins are so fun to make with funny faces

  30. I am working on a Fall wallhanging to hang on the front porch so everyone passing by can enjoy a quilt and know what I do all day, lol Love the colors of Fall too!

  31. I have been out of work for a long time. I have been making clothes and different projects for my grandsons and great nieces. This fabric would be great to make them fall and Halloween projects.

  32. I have been out of work for a long time. So I have been making clothes and different projects for my grandsons and great nieces. This fabric would be great to make them fall and halloween projects.

  33. This is when the presidents challenge is unveiled at our fall meeting and I get to dream of the ways that I can bend the rules and still make beautiful fibre art.

  34. I’ve been thinking of doing some sewing for the first time after recovering from a broken wrist earlier this year. These fabrics would sure inspire me to do so! Lovely combinations of colors!

  35. Oh boy, a fabric giveaway! My favorite Fall fiber art project or activity is making string bookmarks for all the reading I plan to do when it becomes colder. A quilt on my lap as I hand-stitch the binding will keep me toasty!

  36. So excited my favorite season is about to start – always feel inspired to begin new projects in the fall…and the luscious colors and prints of these Moda fabrics are just the thing to get the creative juices flowing — I see some beautiful creation coming from these!

  37. Moving to Florida has presented a challenge to get in the “spirit” of fall and winter …. table top and quilts still seem too heavy this time of year, so I have been making cute accent pillows with yo-yo flowers smattered over the front and embellished with fun buttons and thrift store jewelry…. quick, fun and a welcome gift!

  40. This youthful grandma (YiaYia) is going to transform a spare room in my home into a quilting/mixed media studio. I took care of my mom with Alzheimer’s for 10 years, been raising a granddaughter for 14 years, and provide after school care for my youngest grandchild. Now, it’s time to take care of me and tap into my creative side once again. I’ve got a gazillion ideas in my head. Winning a giveaway would be a great way to get my fabric stash started. Happy Autumn!

  41. Perfect combination of fabrics for my granddaughters (4 & 7 yes its true) 3rd sewing lesson. First was embroidery, 2nd sewing machine stuffed pillow, 3 quilt piecing pillow shams to go with their new quilts!

  42. Fall is my favorite time anyway, because that is when I get back to work with all the ideas of summer that I have not had time to do. Things slow down, weather changes and I start getting things done. Fiber Art is what I make.

  43. I made a fall quilt with a pattern from Lazy Girl and it makes me so happy to look at it. I love the fall. And we have a new Grandson (3 weeks old) to add to our family. We now have 2 Grandsons and 2 Granddaughters. Life’s good!

  44. I’m looking forward to two weeks in a cottage by the St. Lawrence River….days spent hand quilting on the front porch….watching the river go by….autumn fabrics are the best!!

  45. I really don’t have anything fall-ish to decorate my table, and I’m thinking a table runner and placemats with falling leaves applique would be JUST the project for this fabric giveaway!! I think the leaves changing colors is the best part of fall!

  46. I love that fabric!!! Wow. Anyway, my favorite fiber art project in the fall always has to do with yarn. I get into a knitting or crocheting frenzy this time of year. This year more so than most because of the Olympics! I’ve already finished two hats, an enterlac scarf and a sweater for my 7 year old! There are 7-9 more skeins of yarn calling my name too. But I might give all that up to get the chance to work with some beautiful fall fabrics.

  47. Fall is my favourite season, and fall colours are so beautiful! Rich mellow colours and patterns… gorgeous fabrics… my mouth is watering! I would love to make a throw, maybe two! Some cushions?… you bet! And of course, some bags 🙂

  48. Fall is my favorite time of year, love the colors the cool air and the holidays. Right now I’m working on a pumpkin quilt and getting ready to cut out a Halloween quilt followed by an autumn inspired rag quilt.

  49. I never stop crafting nor do I ever have enough fabric!!! I would love to create a new project with Moda fabric. You can’t go wrong with Moda! I am making quilts this fall as well as quilted clothing.

  50. Fall is my favorite time of year! I love the colors, the smell of the air, and the cooler temps. I always make little pumpkins from fall prints, and this year I am planning a table runner for the keeping room. I found the pattern I want last night, so now I need to choose fabric – I would love to be able to use these little yummies!

  51. In Buenos Aires, winter is leaving, i love this days near the fire, watching to rain in the windows, while I can sew or embrodery ..love winter…excuse my English!

  52. In Buenos Aires, winter is leaving, i love this days near the fire, watching to rain in the windows, while I can sew or embrodery ..love winter…excuse my English!

  53. Fall and all its beautifual colors is really my favorite. I find myself wanting to make lots of various table runners, and small wall hangings to go from early fall thru Halloween. Thanks for the giveaway.

  54. I planning out the projects I’ll be making for the holidays! Autumn is always when I feel the most creative and what better use for my all those creative juices???

  55. For a few years I have wanted to attempt a witches hat, and this year I have started it. It will be scrappy, with decorative stitches and wool halloween creatures and sayings on it. I am really looking forward to doing this project! Thanks for the giveaway.

  56. I guess I’m old fashioned, but I still like the autumn leaves and the Thanksgiving portion of fall. In going back to some of the things my grandmother taught me – how to ‘stuff’ the leaves and other fall themes to make them look 3D’. I love to do this with the other seasons also. Quiltings can be done year round and donated to our local Veterans hospitals for our Veterans. Yes, I am a disabled Vet and can’t do much that entails lots of movement. I have my small quilting rack which is just the right size for these lap covers!!

  57. To Troubled Toad – thank you so much for donating to the Wounded Warriors Projects!! I am a disabled Vet and was wondering if you had considered making lap covers for Veterans in wheelchairs??

  58. I have a fall wall quilt kit I bought that I plan to make along with enjoying the fall leaves with their wonderful colors with my grandkids who loved to play in a pile of them.

  59. Fall marks the time I dream of crunchy leaves swirling in the wind and those incredible fall colors – and they seem to creep into my art quilts whether I like it or not!

  60. Never had a fall wall hanging in my home . . . always seem to give away my creations. Would love to create an art quilt with these beautiful fall colors and prints.

  61. I love the season change but since I live in a tropical area it is necessary for me to change the way the seasons look as the decorations change in my home.

  62. I have a few fall birthdays in my family and I like to make fabric art birthday cards. I use a lot of different fabrics for each scene and these would be perfect!

  63. Fall is my favorite time of year! I love the smells in the air, the crispness in the temperatures and of course, all the beautiful colors! I so enjoy fall walks and watching the leaves turn all those beautiful colors! The bright vibrancy of the colors just soothes my soul!

  64. Autumn is my favorite season. Pleasent days, cool nights, brillantly colored trees & flowers, putting on sweaters & going to football games, quilting on the front porch, picking apples & making pies for everyone; these are just a few of my favorite things! Love those fabrics & hoping to make a banner for my front door to celebrate the season! Thanks so much!

  65. I’ve been using up a lot of leftover scraps of Christmas Fabrics to make table runners and mug rugs for Christmas Presents. Living in Fla, it’s better to quilt in Q/C than be outside! I’m about out of scraps and really need some new fabric, especially Fall.

  66. This fall I plan to make (for starters) a couple of baby quilts and a lap robe for my 89-year-old mother. I also want to make an art quilt to hang over my bed. These fabrics would be great for either the lap robe or maybe the quilted wall hanging!

  67. My favorite fall thing is going to the orchard for apples, apples fritters, and apple cider… Taking the grandkids and shooting cool pictures.. Fall seems to bring out the best in everything and everyone…

  68. Love the fall colors! Really gets you in the mood for fall quilt projects and the long cold winter to enjoy sewing. Snuggling in quilts with a warm cup of tea in front of the fire, can’t wait for that!

  69. I’m just starting a Bargello quilt today, so if I succeed in making this pattern I want to make several for my family. Then there are all the table runners buzzing in my head for Christmas gifts.

  70. Fall has always been my favorite season, probably because of the richness of the colors. I make and sell handmade purses and in the middle of my Fall purses right now. These fabrics would make a tremendous addition to my stash!

  71. Every year at this time I get nostalgic for my childhoood home in Massachusetts. I love the cooler weather and the wonderful colours of fall. I’m planning on making an autumn leaf wreath.

  72. My birthday is right around halloween and I always try to make a quilt in the fall to celebrate my favorite time of the year and my aging like a fine wine. Always looking for some great new fall fabrics to add.

  73. Those are beautiful colours! I’m starting my quilting projects for Christmas gifts — and for my granddaughter’s 1rst birthday! She received many “baby quilts” when she was born — I am making her a quilt with many textures in a “scrap happy” kind of pattern. It is such fun to go through my scrap fabrics and choose soft fleece and flanelette, washable satin, fuzzy wool and other textures. I know she will love it — she is a very “tactile” little one!

  74. Fall always makes me feel snuggly! I love the cooler weather & the time to don snuggly sweaters & snuggle under warm flannel quilts!! So I have a flannel quilt project going- one that depicts the outdoors and will just beg for snuggling when it’s all finished!!

  75. I enjoy handmade paper added to fabric as a art quilt. Use fall leaf shapes
    as a stencil or even incorporate the whole leaf in the design. Dipped in very
    hot wax they are nicely preserved.

  76. My neices and nephews are now having children of their own and I have been so busy making baby blankets! I would love to win this give away and make even more blankets!

  77. Love these colors! I don’t know where the summer sped off too, but the days and nights hold that certain chill that tells you fall is on the horizon! More time in the sewing room!

  78. Gorgeos fabrics. Fall always makes me want to incorporate leaves or leaf shapes into my mixed media pieces…panted, stenciled, embroidered, appliqued. And the changing colors of the leaves here in Michigan are a natural color wheel inspiration

  79. Three quilts on the go and serveral pieces of fibre art that will morph into clutch type purses for Christmas gifts. Would love to will this fabric!!! Having had a tiny heart attack last week I have to learn to take it easy. In my mind that means just head for the sewing room and stay there letting everthing else go. LOL Blessings…………..LizBethJill

  80. have gathered my fav fall fabrics for a random leaves quilt … have most of it pressed and ready to fuse the fusible to them. and the background is pieced and waiting. love the fall colors and fabrics!

  81. This year I’m going to try the new (to me) heat moldable interfacing for some deimensional leaves on a wall hanging for my entryway. I’ve been sewing for others for too long and neglecting my own home.

  82. I like to make wall hangings for fall, but this year I have an autumn-themed large quilt kit to make as well. I just love all of the fall colors & fabric designs from all the lines.

  83. I’m incorporating crocheting into my quilting, and since I have a good selection of fall-colored yarn, these fabrics would be perfect for a one-of-a-kind creation.

  84. I just love to machine applique the shapes of leaves on place mats, table runners, etc. I carried a big old book through the neighborhood to press collected leaves to use a templates.

  85. I’m a beginner quilter sewing in an RV. Therefore, I’m working on little projects – table runner, potholders, pillows and maybe a bed runner. This craft is so addictive.

  86. Wow this is my favorite season…and they are some delicious colors. My favorite thing to do is go up to the apple orchard and pick out our pumpkins and have their one of a kind delicious apple dumplings with ice cream. I allow for this luxury every year…Happy fall!!!!

  87. I just finished a quilt I started thirty years ago. Hallelujah. Now I am working on a Chicken Quilt with six panels of appliqued chickens. It is dedicated to my nine chickens. They won’t use it–I will.

  88. I love to decorate my front door step & porch area with pretty stuff I gather from the yard – twigs, colourful leaves, pine cones etc. I display them with craft items I have made & swaps I have received from friends all over the world – fabric postcards & ATCs for instance. I hang small similarly themed quilts & banners. My Hallowe’en display for October goes down very well with the neighbourhood kids!

  89. Just the the right colours to make a quilt for my son and his partner who are to be married in Canada next July. My sister and I are looking forward to visiting as many quilting shops as we can. As we are Australian we hope to come home with my different fabrics.

  90. Its almost time to start making halloween costumes for the grandkiddo’s. I let the pick out what they want to be and then get started picking material and have fun sewing the costumes. I love the material in the giveaway! Thanks!

  91. Again, after reading thoroughly the comment to make as I was so excited to see the fabric, I just made a comment. 🙂 Ahh, my best time of fall is the changing of the leaves. I love all the brilliant colors around and these fabrics will remind me long after the colors fade of my best time of the season. I am in need of a new table runner for my dining room table. Currently, my lilac runner is serving the purpose but way over due for a change. Between now and Christmas, I need to fill the void for fall. These fabrics will do the trick if I am a winner. 🙂 Happy quilting and best of luck on children back to school.

  92. Days are getting cooler (not too cool) but the leaves are starting to fall already and I’m looking to the autumn and these colours will certainly inspire me.

  93. these fabrics look like the perfect fall colors. love, love the yellows. my pre fall chores are to get all my charity quilts done before my Sept meetings when they are due. (so I guess they were really summer projects now pre fall)

  94. My favorite fall fiber activity is to get back to quilting for more hours in the day; the cooler days and nights encourage me to get out the big quilt that I’ve been working on for months – hand quilting can be so cozy!

  95. This 80 year old, (me), has not been able to do a lot of sewing yet because of all the canning and making jelly and jams. I do have 2 more great-grandchildren and one (my first) great-great grandchild due early this winter, so must get busy with some quilts. The free materials would help me immensely!!

  97. Seasons here in Brazil as not really defined as they are in other countries. Basically we have Hot and Hotter, but sometimes we can have the four ones in a single day! Crazy weather!! I guess, because we don’t have a proper Fall, these colours are my favorite ones -> Beautiful pallete! One of the activities that I love most is to spend weekends with my nieces at my studio. We have a lot of fun there!! That bunch of Moda fabric would be very usefull and would bring us the Autumn Spirit. What a gorgeous piece of art we could make with they. My head has already started to plan something.

  98. Hello- I a working with beginning sewers in 4-H.
    -Our new year begins in October- we would use the fabrics to make small totes from quarters. A small, successful project that looks good will encourage more sewing.

  99. I was born in the fall and love the changing colors, these fabrics look like the trees that are up our Lamoille Canyon that are about to change—very pretty site.

  100. Oh dear, my summer fabric quilt is not yet finished, my Christmas fabric is sitting on the table-in-waiting just staring at me, so my autumn fabric project had better be a quickie table runner.

  101. aahhh, time for fall. I love all the beautiful colors. I am thinking about some fiber arts. Wonderful fall colors hanging on the walls. Awesome embellishments, add in multiple fibers and threads…I can see it taking place…
    Beautiful.

  102. There is nothing more beautiful than mother nature’s fall colours. Just when the air develops a bit of bite, the warm colors of fall makes us feel cozy and warm. What better way to warm our homes than with a quilt of reds, golds, greens and yellows. Oh…. that feels better…

  103. I was just playing with the idea of making a quilt based on a wonderful fall picture from my home town in Germany. – Hoping that this may help with the homesickness.

  104. I am looking forward to trying the lace collagraphy that is on today’s post. I confess that I really need to finish a lot of works in progress this fall. I bought 8 yards of batting yesterday, so really have no excuses anymore.

  105. These would make a lovely traditional style like a log-cabin or nine-patch quilt. I’m just getting back to crafting after launching five children into the world while working full time.

  106. I enjoy finishing up projects for Toys for tots each fall but always take time out for One project for myself a fall table runner. There is something about fall table runners that just gets my heart pumping!

  107. I will be making fabric leaves and more fabric leaves (and a few more still) in the next couple of weeks, to make center pieces for an offsite we are holding at the office. I have also decided to make a mobile using an old tree branch so more leaves, larger this time, and using beads to make it shiny and interesting. After that, a few more quilts in the works with the new techniques I’ve been playing with lately. Addictive to say the least!
    Although summer still lingers, the days are getting shorter and there’s a whisper of winter in the air. Despite the fact that I don’t want the snow and the cold weather, it gives me an excuse to stay inside and make stuff!
    Thanks for the chance to win those fabrics. They look lovely.

  108. I love being outdoors in the fall… gardening, taking walks, even raking leaves. I also spend more time at the sewing machine since my girls are back at school.

  109. Having recently moved to Florida, I will miss the fall season. With the A/C going full blast, I’ll cuddle up with a Hawaiian quilt pillow that I’ve been working on too long and a cup of tea, and pretend it’s fall!

  110. For our yearly quilt show in Cody, WY, I am doing sunflowers on a woven, 2 fabric background. The sunflowers and leaves are thread painted on solvy. They will be in 3-D. I love taking the beauty of the seasons and making them last on fabric.

  111. I love the different seasons of the year, and to save the image on fabric. I am now working on sunflowers that are thread painted on solvy. I will place them and leaves on a background that has been woven with 2 fabrics. The flowers and leaves will be dimentional or 3-d.

  112. Fall colors are some of my favorites both in and out of the house. I enjoy the cooler weathers with more time outside. Inside I’m still working on my UFO’s since a goal this year is to finish all my projects!

  113. Love to quilt. It is a great de-stressor after very busy days teaching music in an elementary school for over 1000 students. These beautiful fall fabrics would provide just the right impetus for some therapeutic quilting projects. I get excited just thinking about it.

  114. I am just hand quilting my first quilt, which is of bright summer colors, it would be wonderful to win the fall fabric. I have loads of ideas for an autumnal quilt for my daughter as browns are her favorite color,

  115. I’m really looking forward deciding what to do with the fabulous fabric I made by ice dyeing! It looks like a flower garden that has exploded with color and I’m sure, whatever I make, will remind me of summer, when the garden has become a memory.

  116. Am currently teaching a BOM class with pumpkins and will start my second class next week. These fabrics look more contemporary and would make a great new modern pumpkin quilt. Thanks for the contest!!

  118. I am currently making an Arrow Points Table Runner in warm fall colors using the twisted triangle template. I would love to make a small wall hanging with the new Moda fall fabrics.

  119. I’m new to quilting. I recently completed my very first quilt for my first grandson. He will be one next month. I’ve had the fabric since before he was born, but was fearful of starting. After numerous trips to the local library, a few book purchases, researching tutorials all over the internet, and finally signing up for a Craftsy class, “Quilting Quickly”, I felt brave enough to give it a go. Although it came out looking lovely, I’m not quite satisfied with my binding. Those corners are tough! Now I’ve been bitten by the quilting bug and can’t wait to start a new project. Maybe even something a bit more challenging than simple 5″ blocks, or maybe not just yet.

  120. My very most favourite fall activity is walking in the area near my home. On my walks I love to collect leaves, cones, twigs and seeds. The beautiful colours and vast diversity of the raw material is amazing. I also takes loads of photos, which I bring back to inspire me to find material for my projects. The light is also very different at this time of year, bringing a new hue to my photos.
    If I can find a Chestnut tree, I also have chesnuts to roast when I get home, which is always a bonus!

  121. My favorite activity on fall is picing beautiful leaves, I love the colours and we make beautiful collage with leaves and paint around and on them.

  122. I love leaves, especially Fall leaves, purple, red, orange and yes some of those stubborn green ones. This year leaves will be on a smaller scale. Mug rugs, dangles and maybe some wool needle felting. My playroom is in upheaval and I have to concentrate on Christmas stockings I promised my DD’s for the last two years. Now I have two more to make!! Little boys are way cooler than I thought!!! Especially if they are your grand babies!!!! I live in the Pacific Northwest, so there is never a shortage of Fall leaves and I am looking forward to collecting them and stuffing them between waxed paper and ironing them, with my grandsons. Such a simple craft, but very satisfying with the munchkins and a great way to teach them about trees and which leaves belong to which kind of tree. In our neighborhood it is Cherry blossoms in spring and Maple leaves in the fall!!

  123. Favorite fall fiber art project — probably knitting, although I have a couple of contemporary quilt projects in mind for this fall as well. Thanks for hosting this giveaway!

  124. Although I swear every year that I’ll start earlier, fall is the season of holiday gift making, including Christmas, several birthdays, and hostess offerings. Throughout the year, I buy fabric and mark projects with certain gift recipients in mind; fall is when I dig into the cupboards and retrieve those fabrics and reevaluate those earlier ideas. It’s my most creative time of year!

  125. My fall project is going to be working with leaves. I’ll be using them to print on fabric, as “models” for fabric leaves to add dimension to some art quilts, and of course, to press for inclusion in mixed media and cards.

  126. My favorite fall fiber art project? Those quilts made from the beautiful browns, reds, oranges, yellows of the fall colors. They feel like home to me. Favorite fall activity? Raking leaves, cleaning up the garden, feeling the brisk air of fall. I would love to win these fabric stacks to make a quilt of my own to snuggle with when winter shows up. Thank you for the opportunity.

  127. There’s nothing I enjoy more than receiving gifts that someone has taken the time to actually make for me.. For the holidays this year I have decided that I need to spread the Joy of gifts made from the heart, so I’m doing tapestry quilts for everyone.. It means so much more to have a gift that is thoughtful and heartfelt. Anyone can buy a present. But receiving one that someone has placed an effort into creating it for me means the world.

  129. My favorite fall project was a wall hanging and I just made up as I went along. I embroidered some things that made me think of fall,a bike against a tree with falling leaves,a sunflower, pumpkins etc. I really enjoyed the hand embroidery. I like to take walks in the fall.The smells in the air are so pleasing.

  130. I have two projects going right now–a quilt for a friend who recently moved from California to Texas with blues, aquas and greens to remind her of the ocean she misses so much, and a fall table runner for myself.

  131. /wednesday, Sept. 5th is my 53rd wedding anniversary and what a gift that would make. The fabric would go into an anniversary quilt for my husband and me. Thank you for the opportunity to add my name in this drawing. I love all Moda fabrics.

  132. I am very much a patchwork and quilting newbie, and would love to win this beautiful stash. What a fantastic inspiration that would be to get me started. I am in the UK though, am I allowed to take part? Many thanks, Chrissie

  133. Fall is my favorite time of year! I love getting ready for thanksgiving & making all sorts of crafts from finger painting with my daughter to making my first quilt. Good luck everyone! And thank you for the giveaway!

  134. i am new to quilting. those colors bring to mind harvest and halloween! every year i decorate the apt. balcony to attract little trick-or-treaters! this year i would love to make some fabric halloween and dias de los muertos decorations; a door hanging and table runner. i love that time of year best, and love to decorate for passers-by.

  135. With evenings drawing in I like to start early on Halloween projects for the grandchildren and the home so all the wonderful autumn colours would be the perfect place to start on these. Of course, it’s never too soon to start thinking about Christmas too!

  136. Fall to me means my brother’s birthday is coming up and he needs and wants some new cowboy shirts. He tells me daily in emails he thinks he hears the sewing machine running. LOL.

  137. Once the weather cools down, I will be putting the binding on 4 quilts for my family. They are all in my favourite fall colours with lots of orange and red. I think I pieced them last fall
    Binding is my favourite job. It’s when I sit quietly and put love into the quilt.

  138. prayer flags…spirit flags…meditation flags….flags are ON FIRE!!!! Little bits of art loaded with meaning creating a meaningful gifts….the local church wants to organize a workshop! Everyone I gifted them to loves them.

  139. Too many terrific items to choose from so I guess I will have to say my favorite is all of them. What better time is there than fall to prepare for the oncoming winter months which is what quilting is all about…I would love to have the fall fabric to work with!!!!

  140. QUILTS!!! The quilting bug has attacked and I can’t (and don’t want to) shake it! Also, other quilted items… coasters, placemats, table runners. Christmas gift-giving time is just around the corner!

  141. THE FABRIC WILL MAKE,A WONDERFUL FALL QUILT,THE COLORS,AND PRINT,WILL MAKE GREAT FALL QUILT TO START SEASONS ,FROM GOING TO SUMMER, TO WINTER. TO WRAP UP IN ,TO STAY WARM ,AND ENJOY.

  143. My favorite fall art project: making table decor for Thanksgiving. Thanksgiving is my favorite holiday of all, so I love to have a beautiful fall themed table to set. I choose beautiful autumn colors, mix them up and piece table runners, placemats, hot pads, fabric flowers and on and on. These fabrics will certainly help Thanksgiving turn colorful this year.

  145. I am about to go away to our guild fall retreat…sewing , friends, fabric, what could be better. I can always use new fabric for my stash . Fall in Arkansas with the leaves turning, just a great place to be.

  146. When I get to September, I start thinking of sewing for Christmas and the only thing I really want to sew these days is quilts. Starting to gather fabrics for three projects and would LOVE more to add to the stash. Thanks for a great giveaway!

  147. I would like to make some lap quilts for our OWW (Operation Wounded Warriors) in my area here in Arizona. I feel this is such a worth while cause,as they have put their life on the line to protect us here at home.I feel it is the least a person could do to show they care.

    Thank you,

  149. Fall is my favourite season with all the gorgeous colours and a sense of new tomorrows….. Fall represents yesterday and memories past….. A gorgeous quilt I would make to cuddle under whilst daydreaming on a Sunday Afternoon……of all my yesterdays and magical tomorrows……

  150. Great fabrics. living in India on its western coast we have no distinct seasons except summer and monsoon. right now we are have delayed monsoon. It is much needed rains and rains and more rains. I would love to use the fabrics in fall colours to make beautiful bags. Making bags is one of my passions.

  151. My project this fall will be a long awaited trip to Newfoundland, and plan to have a little sketchbook handy to stock up on inspiration for the winter ahead.

  152. I am currently working on a one block wonder quilt, before finishing Christmas for the grandkids. We have 12 under the age of 16! This keeps me very busy, as only half of them have quilts and the others are always watching to see “what” Nana is making, and “who’s it for?”

  153. Right now my favorite fall project is making Memory Sticks packs, tieing them with dried rosemary, sage, or any lovely herb, adding a pretty fabric ribbon from my scrap pile and a tag with a quotation on it. They can then be used to remember a loved one, or event, and burned in evening campfire gatherings. I use all biodegradeable items. Ribbon has to be removed if they are being set afloat from a boat. Lolliesjollies

  154. I am currently working a one block wonder before getting back to Christmas gifts. My husband an I have 12 grandchildren, all under the age of 16. Half of them have quilts, and the other half are always watching to see “what” Nana is making, and “who’s it for”! Patiently waiting their turn, they know Nana is fair.

  155. Hi Ya’ll, Just a note to tell you that sewing is my passion, I’m always looking at quilting and sewing sites to find my next project or a bunch of projects I can be ready to do when I retire and have lots of time to sew.XOX

  156. I broke my finger six weeks ago; this week I am hoping my doctor gives me permission to start “gently to quilt again” Looks like a nine patch quilt project using fall colors will be just what the doctor orders (I hope)

  157. My favorite fall project was to use scraps from other projects to make a log cabin table runner. Using pieces of my hand made pottery collected from US and Europe travels, and a few flowers from my garden, it makes the table in our 1930’s retirement cottage a welcoming site for my family and guests.

  158. After the heat of the summer I look forward to dyeing fabric outdoors…and taking photos and sketching for projects to do over winter. Would love to win these fabulous fabrics…thanks for the chance!

  159. I’m in a new apartment this fall, and would like to make something new to match my change in decor. This fabric looks perfect! Maybe a new throw, or a wall hanging!!! Oh the possibilities!!

  160. been very busy this summer with selling my home of 30 years and having my teen & tween granddaughters visiting. We did their favorit thing shopped, shopped and the shopped some more. Looking forward to completing my resilution of finishing UFO’s. Did good so far this year, finished 4 plus made 3 baby quilts.
    My fall project is to also make a snippets fall wreath for my door.
    Just for fun.

  161. Having recently moved from MA to FL, I feel that I’ve left all of my favorite fall activities in New England… apple and pumpkin picking, being in the middle of mother nature’s glorious color changes, switching wardrobes, enjoying the crisp, cool autumn air, and making cozy items for friends and family. I will still make cozy goodies for loved ones, but I’m really looking forward to establishing new fall favorites!

  162. Fall is when I make LOTS of quilts, table runners, tote bags, etc. to give as gifts at Christmas. But I also take time out for football — we love going to games and also watching them on TV.

  163. In the fall, especially on a cold rainy day, I love the feel and comfort of good quilters cotton. It’s like when you put on your favorite sweater for the first time on the first cold day of the season.

  165. In the Fall, somehow my mind always turns to felt!! I love to do any projects with felt, usually those oranges, reds and browns. I love table runners and pincushions, acorns and leaves. Fall decorating is my second favorite time of year! (although these days, I think it is advancing into first place..)

  166. Fall is my favorite time of year; it gets all the creative juices flowing. I love making smaller quilts to place around our home that reflect how I feel about this season.

  167. I’m going to start a quilt using old sweaters and work on making some table runners. I’ll be hosting Thanksgiving at my house this year so got to make it look right! =)

  168. Fall brings the fun of creating gifts for the holidays and I find myself with a lap full of yarn and a few small embroidery projects to spend my evenings with. I still find time for sewing which is always my favorite fiber art!

    I love both of these fabric collections. Thanks for the opportunity to win!

  169. I’d like to think that there is more sewing in the fall, but it never seems to happen between leaf raking season and football. I’m going to promise myself to make time this year!!

  170. I recently won a prize, gift certificate, from Craftsy. I have been like a child of yesteryear that had just received the Sears Toy Catalog. That comment probably dates me, but I hope some of you understand. I also hope that the winner of this prize has that same joy opening the fabric package and deciding how and when to use it.

    Thank you to Craftsy and Quilting Arts for creating so much inspiration and moments of joy.

  171. I’m always doing something quilty, no matter the season! This year I look forward to October. The Magpies, an online quilting group (“chattering away since 1997”) will have their biennial in-person meetup in conjunction with the Pacific International Quilt Festival in Santa Clara. There will be 16 of us from across the U.S. and also Australia.

  172. I am going to try hexies with my granddaughter that I am visiting in October. I am hoping to get her interested in sewing. What a great chance to use some beautiful fabric that will inspire us both! Thanks for the giveaway.

  173. I am looking forward to starting some bigger, long-term projects this fall. Also, fall and winter are the best time to bind or hand-quilt, because you get to snuggle under all that quilty goodness!!

  174. Fall was always my favorite season, growing up in New England, watching the leaves and back ground change before your eyes. Living in Texas I do miss all those warm and golden colors, I have found the perfect table runner to bring me back to my earlier days.

  175. What wonderful fall fabrics! I’ve seen Juggling Summer up close and the fabrics are just beautiful. And Sandy Gervais never fails to deliver! Right now I’m working on zipper pouch for my daughters sketch book and art supplies. She painted scraps of fabric, I will piece and quilt them and then sew pockets and zippers.

    Thanks for the chance to win!

  176. My mantra is “Don’t forget the children” so when I have scraps, and sometimes when I don’t I make things kids can purchase for those they love for the holidays. All through college I would ask my classmates one thing; that when they were out in the world and making art, save the mistakes,, use up leftover materials (whatever their medium) and make something kids can actually buy for the holidays, or birthdays. They love it and so do the recipients.

  177. My favorite thing to do in the fall and cooler months is to work on afghans and this fall i am going to start on a quilt. Making a quilt is my favorite sewing project.

  178. Starting in September we have our regular quilt guild meetings and I am looking forward to learning some new patterns and it would be lovely to have new material with which to work on a new quilt.

  179. At the end of every summer I think about fall or winter projects. I always think that I will do something different to usher in the fall, but inevitably I turn towards fall colors and shapes. There is just something so interesting and artistic about them that I have to play with them. It’s just reinforced by looking out my window every day and observing what is happening. I hope everyone finds some inspiration.

  180. I would be so thrilled to win any fabric, but especially from Moda. I am 80 years old, live in South Dakota where the winters can be horribly cold and messy, so would love to spend this winter using the beautiful fabrics from either designer.
    I have 2 great and one great-great grandchildren due this winter, so would love to make them some quilts! Thank you.

  181. For gifts, I have been doing more knitting than sewing over the last few years. It’s easier to “take along” or do in front of the TV. I am going to sew some projects from one of Quilting Arts publications for my church’s first ever craft/bake/tag sale.

  182. Autumn is my favorite time of year, and just thinking about its colors and textures is inspirational. I love working with fabrics in these hues. My current sewing kick is patchwork bags and jackets.

  183. This is the time of year that I sort my stash. Some goes to charity, but most stays. It gives me a chance to re-visit what I have, and helps to keeps the stash under control. Best of all, it often serves as an inspiration for all those winter projects that I need once the snow flies.

  184. Fall marks the first meeting or my fibre arts/mixed media group. We have a couple of new members so the first session will be a meet and greet and painting background fabrics for projects for future meetings.

  185. Fall brings me around to thinking about which craft shows I would like to participate in and what wooly, or fabric creations to sew. Probably lots of softies made from sweaters.

  186. I am getting fabrics together for making walker caddy bags
    for the nursing home residents. Every year a couple of weeks
    before Christmas our church hosts a Christmas shoppe.We take lap quilts, fleece lap blankets, walker caddy bags and other items we setup a shop the residents come and pick several items.

  187. I’m enjoying reading the other comments-always looking for ideas! I am finishing the graduation quilt I started for my niece. My tension was off the first time I quilted the blocks, so I had to frog it, and wait for the machine to come back from the doctor. Not how I planned things. Check your tension Ladies. 🙂

  188. I’ll be finishing up the gardens over the next few weeks, then it will be time to start my daughter’s Christmas quilt. When it comes to crafts/fiber arts, I’m a seamstress, quilter, cross stitcher, and card maker – I love it all!! I’ve never made a quilt in fall colors, this would be a great opportunity to do my first one! Thanks for the opportunity.

  189. Summer has come & gone! Been feverishly trying to get quilts finished for Market at our church. Our group sews quilts for the babies at the Med & other charity groups. New fabric is always welcome!

  190. I’ve just started quilting a small wholecloth quilt to which I’ve added a beautiful autumn leaf printed border; I love these rich fall colors after a hot humid summer.

  191. I’m determined to finish projects this year that I started and then set aside for something new. I have a whole drawer full of such projects. Some just have a few blocks done, some are completed tops and some are already sandwiched and just awaiting quilting. Wish me luck.

  192. I am 79 years old and just had my first grandchild four weeks ago – Baby James. Sadly he is all the way across the country from me in CA but my son is very good about SKYPEing with me every day or so and I can see James and how is he growing. I am crocheting James an afghan and making him a baby quilt with cars and airplanes on it. I have other plans for bibs and a Christening outfit for Novemeber when I will be going to see him and finally get to hold him.

  193. Fall is were the heart is.
    It is the time to stay home more and to think about others. My favorite time ot year because the summer quilt projects are done snd donated. Now I get to look through the trunk to pull out all flanel fabrics for fall quilting.

  194. My best friend is getting married this fall and her favorite colors are fall colors 🙂
    I’d love to win them to make her a quilt! Thanks so much for the chance to win too!

  195. I love fall! Especially after a long hot summer. This is the time of year that I begin to select and cut simple charm packs from my stash to creat a lap quilt for each of my sisters and girlfriends for a holiday gift. Keeping it simple means I can get them all done and these quilts take me back to where I started years ago. A very fulfilling activity. Zen Chic looks like the perfect bundle for one of my quilts!

  196. What lovely fabric. Thanks for the chance to win.
    My favorite fall activity is harvesting the bounty from our garden and canning.

  198. Fall is the season that my creative energies return full force. It must be that “going back to school” feeling left over from my childhood…. I have some unfinished art quilts to tackle (with new eyes) and plenty of holiday gifts to make. Bring on the cool weather and beautiful Fall colors!

  199. Love to print with fall leaves mixing prints and plains using mettallic paints for highlights. Wonderful for creating quilt borders and small pieces make lovely tree decorations for christmas.

  201. These fabrics are gorgeous, especially inspiring on this foggy Saturday morning with the birds heading south. Ooooh, they would be lovely in that 50th birthday quilt for my sister… which is appropriate because she is definitely a Summer Zen Chic(k)!

  202. All my projects right now are for my 7-week old granddaughter. She already has more quilts and accessories thann we know what to do with. Oh well….on to the scrap baby jacket. LOL

  203. Who doesn’t love fabric? I sew/craft/quilt only so that I have excuses to buy/win more fabric! These fabrics would make good friends with other fabric in my collection.

  205. I’m currently working on a wedding quilt for a couple my daughter works with. They’re getting married in October & I’m almost finished. Just need to add their names, embroidered on the front & then put my quilt sandwich together. Winning would be awesome as I could add some new & interesting fabrics to my Christmas presents!!

  206. I LOVE Fall! It’s my favorite season. I even get to celebrate my birthday! The colors, cooler temperatures, back to “normal” schedules all energize me. This energy is focused on putting up the harvest from our garden and stitching many projects, from clothing to quilted items of all sizes, including mittens, socks, and quilts for charity. I am working on a textured 3-D full-size bed quilt in fall colors for myself right now. The fabrics would be thoroughly enjoyed and a wonderful gift!

  207. I’m writing my Masters’ Thesis — and will be working with high school students who have difficulty with communication during conflict. I’d like to try a little ‘hand-stitching bobbles’ in a small way during some 1-1/group discussions: distraction from frustrating situations sometimes makes conversation easier, and having a few beautiful materials would sure help!

  208. I’ve been working on some lap quilts and walker caddies to take to the local senior center. Also some cute totes for the other volunteers. I’d love to use this pretty fall fabric to make placemats, napkins and table toppers for their lunch room. thanks for the chance to win!

  209. Working with quilters cotton or yarn on a chilly rainy day in Autumn, is like putting on your favorite sweater or sweatshirt for the first time on a cold fall day, Yummy!

  210. I am new to quilting and I love it. Just finishing machine quilting my second quilt, then binding and then I will be looking for my next learning challenge. These fabrics would be beautiful. So enjoy your blog

  211. aaahh, Fall … I’m looking forward to putting the gardens to bed so that I can get back to knitting and stitching and sewing! A yummy stack of new fabrics would provide the perfect inspiration!

  212. I’m finishing up a skirt with swirls of fabric color for my granddaughter, made a “batty” pillowcase for my grandson, and am working on lining two jackets… hope they are done in time to wear to Houston… can’t wait. Also have a friend’s baby quilt on the long arm. And I’m ready to visit a few stores for Quilt Across Texas! All while heading back to work for this school year.

  213. My favorite Fall Fiber is 100% cotton flannel…This fall I will be making cozy rag quilts that are sure to keep us in a warm and fuzzy mood..I love the Fall, and welcome the winter months…:)

  214. I love making autumn leaf themed quilts, any time of year, but my usual fall quilting activity is to start Christmas gifts for my family. Some years I even finish them.

  215. This is the time of year that when possible I try to get serious about starting my Christmas sewing. Any project done in time I like to display (and win ribbons for) at my community fair.

  216. Autumn is my favorite season of the year! All those georgous colors and the great anticipation of Christmas soon to come. These colors are perfect for all the ideas and plans I have!

  217. I wanted to make some fall table runners for my sister’s in-laws who host both our families for Thanksgiving (they are just wonderful) and the colors in the giveaway would be perfect!

  218. I’d love to see if I could use these in landscaping quilts? If not there’s always another quilt. Hope I win. Could use the fabric my stash is low. thanks bobbie 1608

  219. This year, I’m making a quilt for one of my grown sons who has been asking for one. With 5 kids, 2 DILs, 1 SIL, and 5 grandkids, I don’t have to look too far for an eager quilt recipient!

  220. This summer we drove to Maine and experienced my childhood anew. I did forget just how COLD the ocean is down east… I now reside in Maryland. I have collected shells all of my life… and this year the pickings were tiny and broken. I wonder what this tells us about the oceans and the gifts from it.
    I am encasing shells from my past in fabric and trapunto quilting around them. The fabric takes on the interesting shapes of the shells with a hint of the colors melting through the thin, bleached looking fabric I chose. I have often thought that what is inside is what counts… with people, at least. So why not fabric.
    This is the first September that I am choosing to encase things in fabric… I have thought about doing this ever since I read about Dianne Savona’s work in the Fiber Arts Magazine about two years ago. I had let my QA subscription lapse, and it is already been replaced with the next issue, so I am with out that opportunity. SIGH. I did re up my subscription, but alas I am too late for the QA article.
    So there you have the long answer to what fun activity I am doing this fall… add to that I am bundling up flowers in fabrics to try out some eco dyeing. There is so much more time once school is back in session… and that is how I define Autumn.
    Happily fibering, Kimberly Field

  221. Fall is my favourite time of year to pull out a new sketchbook and get started on a fresh body of work for my new annual art quilt exhibition. This is the best time of year to go through the planning process and gear up for all that winter stitching, cuddled under a comfy,cozy quilt of course! Thanks to Quilting Arts magazine there’s always plenty of inspiration!
    Big hugs from carol in Plenty, Saskatchewan, Canada

  222. I love all our seasons. Sitting at my sewing table and finishing a project is always very rewarding. Each time I start a new sewing pattern I dream of all the adventures this quilt will take. As I head back to school, if I were to win this fabric it would be used for a weighted quilt in an autistic classroom.

  223. I can’t wait to start on Christmas gift projects, flannel rag quilts (so warm to cover up with as I clip the seams!), and PJs for the great-nieces and great-nephews. That, and a great mug of homemade chai tea!

  224. Fall means time to read a good book snuggled up with a nice lap quilt, so I am making a pretty lap quilt for our cabin. Already we can feel fall in the air, here in the northwest, so I better get busy!

  225. I’m right in the middle of two fall quilts at the moment. I also enjoy making a few fall crafts. I may make some leaf shaped bowls also and start a Christmas project or two.

  226. When an end to the summer heat is around the corner, my focus turns to decorating for Halloween, including making Trick-or-Treat bags for grandkids, and pulling out the Thanksgiving and Christmas projects I’ve p.urchased at quilt shows. It helps to steer my mind away from drought and toward my many blessings.

  227. Collecting leaves, preserving them and sewing them into a quilt. I did it last year but didn’t follow the directions perfectly. It still worked but this year I’ll see what happens if I take it out of the preservative after a week instead of a month. Also printing with leaves, scanning leaves and jumping into the leaves.

  228. The juggling summer zen fabric reminds me of my family’s trips to Zuma beach this summer. As far as the eyes can see on a sparkling summer day are the colorful umbrellas of strangers’ beach homesteads for the day. Most of them end up, at one time or another, flying off in the breeze, and there is great animation among the homesteaders as they retrieve the naughty umbrella. Summer transitioning to fall and back to school is truly the grand finale!. I would love to make an umbrella beach scene art quilt with these luscious fibers.

  229. I have several unfinished projects, all quilts, that I hope to finish before starting something new. I plan on making a table runner as a charity raffle. I would love to win one of the fabric bundles.

  230. This fall I’m teaching a friend to quilt. In addition, I’ll be hand quilting a quilt which has been in the frame for quite a while now, and lastly I’ll be working on appliqueing a queen sized wool-on-cotton quilt which combines several designer patterns and my own floral touches (love, love, love this one)

  231. My fall projects will be holiday preparation…gifts, accessories etc. Fall is my favorite season, the chill in the air seems to give me renewed energy to tackle new projects.

  233. Absolutely love the opportunity to win some free fabric! Thanks for keeping this blog fresh, fun and relevant. I’m a new quilter (1 year now) and have finished 8 quilts. One of the older members of our Guild is getting very frail and will pass soon. As a result, she is happily giving away all her huge stash to friends. I received several perfect winter fabric yards and am currently purchasing others so that I can make a winter scene quilt for my home and to be able to show her how valuable and meaningful her give-aways have been to me.

  234. In between raking leaves I plan to make a wall hanging with pumpkins, crows, and “fabric” leaves. Fall is my favorite time of year, there is such inspiration in the changing colors.

  235. I’m currently working on a Witch wall hanging. The embroidery center panel says, “Good Witch Bad Witch it’s all about the shoes”. Everyone that knows me, knows I love shoes. I’m going to embellish it with ribbons, lace, rhinestones and tulle. I’m so excited to get it done and start a Fall project, which by the way, the fabrics you have shown would be awesome in. Thank you for this promotion.

  236. One of the joys of fall is looking down at the yard, covered in multicolored leaves in various stages of drying. If I stare a bit longer my vision seems to change and I am seeing the colors and shapes change into interlocking patterns, complete with small twigs and leaf veins puckering the fluff of a warm quilt. A great transition from fall to winter!

  238. My folks will celebrate their 60th Wedding Anniversary this November. My siblings have put me in charge of “photos.” I have decided to create a memory quilt for my parents as part of this photo display. My biggest challenge – getting my mom to gather pictures for me to use. My family is in NY, I am in MN. This is a fun yet challenging project! Any suggestions are happily welcomed.

  239. I have been working on Christmas gifts, tabletoppers with matching placemats. For one set I used the Grand Finale fabric and I just LOVE it! I would love to win so I could make something larger out of that wonderful fabric 🙂 Thanks for the giveaway! Good luck, Everyone!! 🙂

  240. definitely my favorite fall projects are “snuggles”…jackets, throws, scarves. i love to mix older fabrics from previous projects with new fabrics like carrying a thread from the past into the future fall is great for that looking back and ahead feeling

  241. my favorite fal projects are “snuggles” warm things like jeckets, throws, scarves etc. i like to use fabrics from projects past along with new fabrics like threads of the past being carried into the future. fall is that “looking back and ahead” season

  242. I always look toward Halloween. This is my favorite holiday and als my favorite time of year to sew. I like tabletop items and wall items as well as new quilts for the season

  243. AUTUMN LEAVES!! How wonderfully exhilarating to rake a pile of leaves and then see the children jump, roll, hide in them. To me children’s happy faces are reflected in the leaves which happily dance across the quilted table runners, place mats, wall hangings and bed quilts. Fun!

  244. I love fall because of all the rich colors- It is so pretty and the weather especially in the beginning is more temperate than the summer. I also appreciate the bounty of the gardens at this time of year. The seasons are a changing and I am returning to the classroom for the 34 year. Thanks for the chance to win such a pretty bundle of fabric.

  246. i recently made a bed runner for my daughter’s best friend, Becky. i used 3 leaves from outside my window by overlapping them and then tracing them onto unbleached muslin. i used 2 different shades of orange and 1 of yellow to outline the stems, veins and outer lines. i pieced the embroidered blocks with an orange batik for the borders and using the saame batik for the backing. as soon as my daughter gabriella saw the runner, she informed me that she wanted a quilt made exactly the same way. suffice it to say that i am now working on that quilt. i love working with fall colors because of their brillience and fire. the combinations using fall colors are endless.

  247. I love the colors of fall. Tablerunners and matching napkins in fall colors and using leaf applique designs are my signs that fall is in the air. Not to mention pumpkin blocks.

  248. My living room/dining room is filled with rusts, golds, greens, browns, warm wood and stone. Giving our cold winters here in Wisconsin, I think a quilt to hang over the sofa in front of the fireplace is inevitable.

  249. I have so many different projects I enjoy, it’s difficult to pick only one. I love sewing with luscious 100% cotton quilting fabrics! Clothing, costuming, wall hangings. The wall hangings I make use Indo batik panels, framed with complimentary or contrasting colors. Then I sew a back on them, add ribbon tabs to hang them from a dowel. Never ending possibilities! I want to make a artisan duster for fall in various crazy quilting and an other using some stunning Japanese quilting fabrics. 🙂 Happy Quilting!

  250. I’m not sure things I create are necessarily within the definition of ‘fiber art’ as I don’t mix medias like fabric and yarns etc. in one project although I suspect as my Grandchildren get older I’ll do some of that again. Right now however, I am usually busy this Fall about to make slippers for myself and am working on a few quilts. I also am going to be making some toys and bibs etc for my 6 month old Granddaughter who is living here with us and her parents right now.

  251. My favorite fall fiber art project has always been – making Halloween costumes. My children always loved planning and helping to make/sew their costumes. We always made one, have never bought one.

  252. Quilting and Fall are my two of my favorite things. These new fabrics are enough to inspire any quilter to get going now on those quilts for the fall holidays with other matching projects to set the tables. The warm colors are getting my creative juices flowing …….

  253. I love all fall fabric including leaves and some of the fabric that is so colorful would be wonderful to make anything with. Pumpkins,calico, the pallet of the colorful trees outside is just so breath taking.
    Thanks for letting me enter. Have a good day!

  254. I work with troubled elementary age students in a school setting. Table toppers made with some of these fun, bright fall prints would be a wonderful addition (and hide an ugly table top!) in my office. Maybe it would help to brighten a student’s day.

  255. My favorite fall fiber art project is making a Thanksgiving table topper using the gorgeous colors and patterns associated with this time of year. Fall is the one time of the year when I actually spend time and effort on a project for a special occasion. For my Thanksgiving table toppers, I use different techniques or a combination of techniques each year. One such project, given as a gift, combined counted cross stitch, Hardanger, quilting, and was edged with my own version of lace made by needle tatting.

  256. Fall is probably my favorite season with the ever changing colors. This is the time when I get back to my quilting more seriously and that I begin planning my future projects. Winning these fabrics would be great as this would give me an opportunity to explore new colors and new projects.
    Thanks for giving me the chance to participate.

  257. Bags! making fabric bags for Fall for all the places I go and are what is fun about the Fall. Through the Winter I give most of the bags I have made during the Fall away to admirers, so every year, I get to make more beautiful fabric collage bags and containers! Life is about giving and receiving……..

  258. I’m taking some of my leftover yarn and fabric and use it with my felting machine to make a small fall landscape quilt. I made a similar one last Spring when I thought Winter would never end. Hopefully, my new fall quilt will be a cheerful addition to my studio.

  259. just bought a third ! sewing machine so i can work on small projects upstairs while i watch dinner cooking. i am working on easy small projects that i can teach my 8-year-old grandson–i bought him a simple sewing machine this summer and he is having a great time making up quilt squares and triangles!

  260. Oh, my, what lovely fall colors! I can envision my next Log Cabin Quilt already. I love to do the off-center narrow/wide ones, with a contrasting color, like turquoise, to set butterflies in the quilt.

  261. I think there is nothing better than watching a movie or listening to an on-line course while my hands are busy with quilting or something. Especially if it covers the lap. It just about kills me to go any where and not be able to keep my hands busy doing something. I love quilting because your making something beautiful and your love goes into every stitch. Whether for yourself or for a loved one.

    Thank-you

  262. We are holding a coffee morning in conjunction with Macmillan Cancer Support’s “World’s Biggest Coffee Morning” event at the end of September and I’m currently hard at work stitching items to sell. This weekend I’m working on stuffed hanging fungi which can be used as scissor keepers, pin cushions or decorative ornaments.

  263. One of the things that happen to me in the fall is that I move from the hot colors of the SW US into more of the darker shades with my fabric dyeing, using the fabric for napkins, table runners, clothing, etc.

  264. I love everthing about Fall. The turning of the leaves is my favorite, besides the cool weather. I use leaves in my needle felting, my mug rugs, ATCs, postcards and quilting patterns.
    Thanks for this giveaway. The fabrics look so bright and fun.

    Happy Quilting,
    Helen

  265. At the moment I am not working on any fall projects as it has been a very stressful year. This spring my husband had a mild stroke and was diagnosed with liver cancer and died 2 weeks later. This summer my daughter in law who had cerebal palsy and trouble coping with the arrival of her only child committed suicide. Then just this past week my olderst daughter gave birth to her first child.
    So I am just now getting back into checking out quilting websites to see what is new and exciting and hope I can use the info to create some new memories.

  266. I am working on a Fall wall hanging for my niece. I am going to teach her how to sew and quilt now that I am retired. She lives in NY so I will have some traveling to do; but, my niece and her family are totally worth the trip. The wall hanging has pumpkins and vines and I am thinking about embroidering their names on the pumpkins; but, I am undecided at this point. Thank you so much for the newsletters and the opportunity to win fabric. The colors are fabulous!

  267. This fall brings an exciting new challenge as I begin a positions and Elementary Art Specialist at a school serving a military community. I would love to work with them on a fabric collage project creating story quilts in the style of Faith Ringgold. A beautiful collection of fabrics would be just the marvelous for this project.

  268. My favorite Fall fiber art project is new pieced and quilted table runners. They change the whole look of a table. I also like to use them on the top of my bureaus to add color.
    I love the colors in the stack of Grand Finale!!!

  269. I enjoy using multi-media to produce wall quilts. Fabric is my base and then it is GO for it!!! I stalk garage sales, flea markets and thrift stores. My friends donate stuff and then I go.
    Keeping my space organized is almost impossible though.
    Obtaining fabric that is new.
    Thank you for the opportunity!

  270. My fqvorite fall activity is jumping in leaves but I am getting kind of old for that . I am looking foward to making some wonderful fall placemats and kitchen accessories though and those fabrics would be just perfect!

  271. I’m a new quilter so I would LOVE to add to my stash. I love the fall — it’s my favorite season. I love the changing colors of the trees. I’m between projects right now while my shoulder heals from surgery, but I’m anxious to try making a quilt using log cabins. I usually machine quilt, but I do have a grandmother’s flower garden quilt, paper piecing hexagons, started that I use as my take along project. Not too far along with that and with the injured wing, it’s not something I can be working on. I am going stir-crazy, have about 15 more weeks of physical therapy ahead of me.

  272. I found that rug hooking (locker hooking) is a fantastic way to use up stash. I’m making trivits for the table to give as “take along” gifts for the holidays.

  273. It has to quilting, due to summer being too warm to have a quilt on your lap. In the summer I usually just dream of patterns, now is the time to put that dream into reality.

  274. Just moved to a new home which potentially has a REAL STUDIO space – have I died and gone to heaven? Time to get very serious about setting up and creating this Fall after yrs. of putting it off for other reasons, and can’t do that without more fabric, can I? Fall, more than Spring, is my time for new beginnings, echoing my childhood love of starting school with a brand new box of crayons, new shoes, new books and usually new friends, as we moved alot to different parts of the country. But Fall has always been my sentimental favorite season, and as I age, the colors of Fall have grown on me. Would be nice to have some fabric in those colors to add to my stash!

  275. This summer I completed my first true, full size quilt top and I’m very pleased with it. I am anxious to try a new pattern and possibly make a quilt for a Christmas gift for my mother (she started me sewing when I was very young, making doll clothes with the scraps from her sewing projects)

  276. My fall project is to finish the two Christmas quilts for my granddaughters. Also my quilt bee will be focusing on handwork like English piecing and reverse applique.

  277. I like Vicky C’s comment!

    Fall colors – my favorite, even if springtime. I notice many others agree.
    If I won I’d add the luscious fabrics to my stash, which Never has enough – (oh yeah?)
    I’m getting older now, what to do with all my fabric? I needed it all at one time, and still do, but time’s going by and…
    I know! – I’ll hire someone to mop and clean while I work with the fabric. Yes, that’s what I’ll do. But even then…
    How much is a workable stash? How much is too much? How to divide and organize and recognize what may be necessary for the future…?

  278. am just finishing a vampire hanging for my granddaughter’s door. Next up will be a table runner for her mother. also gathering small hand projects to occupy me after my knee replacement

  279. My favorite fall fiber art is making Christmas Gifts. I also set up the programs for our Fiber Arts Guild. Always looking for inspiration so I can share with others.

  280. The new year found me being diagnosed with Inflammatory Breast Cancer which changed all my plans….but what it HAS done, is given me the time and opportunity to get back to creating.
    This Christmas will be a “home made” Christmas with totes, bags, coasters, pillows, wall hangings, and teaching my niece to quilt.
    I am just getting started on the Christmas projects and these fabrics would be a complete help!!

  282. I’m working on my Christmas gifts already. One is a handprint quilt for my mom which will have all her families handprints on it. I need to get it done as I collected everyones prints last year and now have to add two more and get rid of one. If I’m not quilting, I’m either riding my bicycle or playing with my grandsons. Fall is my favorite time of year.

  283. Fall is my favorite time of year. I’m currently preparing to start my Christmas sewing. I’m working on a quilt for my mom with everyone in her families handprint on it. When I am not quilting, I’m out riding my bicycle or hanging out with my grandsons.

  284. My favorite fall project has to be the Halloween costumes. My two sons are both pretty young, and they both tend to pick kind of unusual costumes. I love trying to figure out how I’m going to make them! One year it was a Christmas tree costume; the next was a carrot costume. This year it’s a pink oreo cookie costume and Spider Man (the older one finally saw Spider man and fell in love).

  285. I had a busy summer as well, and my color palette was summery too – aqua, peach, fuschia, bright green. Now that it’s fall, I’m looking forward to starting some new art quilts with the deeper, richer autumn tones (would love to win something – the 5th is my birthday!). Thanks for the chance!

  286. I make quilts for the local childrens “orphanage” or home that my husband was adopted from about 46yrs. ago I make big batches for christmas along with a few other things we donate there.Thank-you for the give away opportunity.Becky

  287. I’m new to art quilting, but am learning as quickly as I can. I find your magazine fascinating and the art within, amazing! I hope to be half this creative when I m old and gray! Please keep the creative ideas coming! And Quilting Daily. Thanks, from the bottom of my heart!

  288. I’m looking forward to cooler weather so I can start working with flannel again. With temperatures consistently in the 90s & over 100F this summer, I can hardly wait for that crisp air. I have a faux chenille kid’s blanket all ready to sew as soon as that first cool day comes (and a little boy who’s waiting for it!).

  289. I like to do outdoor fabric dying in the fall. The temps are cooler and the bugs are gone! Lovely fabric, Moda does some of the best! Thanks for the great giveaway – Happy Fall!

  290. I’m about to start a set of potholders with a matching tea cozy and toaster cover as a housewarming gift. Then I’m going to start planning out my Christmas gifts so I can get them underway by the end of September and maybe even finished by the end of November – would be a first for me!!
    These would be that extra spark of motivation I’ll need.

  291. I love to go back to Colorado to the Mountains around the Denver area, Fort Collins, in the southern area if possible to collect a variety of natural resources that I can use to find different textures, designs to imprint onto different fabrics. I lived the first of my 25 yrs in and around Denver so find myself going that way in the fall if possible. I have been living in Southwestern Nebraska for over 30 yrs and explore throughout Nebraska for other found treasures. I just love to paint and explore new methods to enhance fabric that I can pass on to whomever finds a piece they like. I am looking forward to this year around where my grandson lives so we can continue our loving nature trips. He is 3 this year and looks at everything so differently.

  293. As a teacher, fall is a time of the year when things are new and exciting…new kids to meet, new lessons to teach, and new projects to sew! I’m looking forward to making bags for friends and colleagues to carry to school, shopping, or wherever the day takes them!

  295. Just began experimenting with decoupaging fabrics, and really loving the fantastic textures I can achieve by layering different weight fabrics. Would love to make a fabric decoupage hurricaine lamp with some great fall fabrics!

  296. Fall is my favorite time of the year. In Texas, Fall means that the weather is cooling off, trees are turning and there’s just a “Fall feeling” in the air. I can walk out of my apartment one morning and I think, “Hm-m-m! It feels like Fall!” This fall I’m going to have fun starting on Christmas gifts, hand made of course! Table runners, wall hangings, cute slippers, place mats, and other things. I am just now getting into quilting so I am looking forward to learning as I go making quilted gifts for Christmas. People are really appreciative, I believe, of hand made gifts — whatever they may be. I know I am!

  297. I love to go gather real autumn leaves and then trace the shapes onto fusible web. I then search my stash and scraps for fabric that echoes the colours of nature. I fuse and cut, making sure I cover both sides of my leaf. The finished leaves can be used in many different ways and projects. Thanks for hosting the giveaway!

  298. I get started on my Chrsitmas gifts… a bit late, but better late than never. I think my favorite is stitching up home decor pillows. You can never have too many pillows!

  299. Fall is the best time to begin those special Christmas projects….a quilt for family, new stockings or other gifts. My favorite fall project was a collaged dogwood project with a patched batik background.

  300. I am enjoying working on a quilt for a friend. I am also sewing halloween bags for my grandson’s 4th grade class. I would love to win some new autumn fabrics to make runners, wall hangings and other small items for gifts. Thanks for a chance to win.

  301. I like this time of year because all the fall/winter magazines like Stitched have great ideas for Christmas gifts. I always get excited when I can have a fun idea for a gift for someone.

  304. I love to ‘pet’ new fabric and dream about what I’m going to make with it. Can’t wait to get settled in my new house in about 3 weeks and get started on a fall table runner!

  305. My favorite fall projects this year will be gifts I am working on for the holidays…..and my favorite activity during the fall is to sit outside and read and enjoy the mild weather.

  306. Fall the cool mornings make we want to get started on all of our families upcoming birthdays in November….This year I’m making fall runners and table toppers, for all the ladies in the family….Fall prints mean family gartherings, warmth and love…

  307. I broke my wrist in June and am just getting back to the sewing machine.
    This collection is just what I need to help me “rev” up my enjine and get motivated and create a new bright piece of art!! :=)
    These colors are fabulous!!
    Diane from MI

  308. Although the changing seasons is inevitable, Juggling Summer Zen Chic looks like just what I need to incorporate in a modern quilt and prolong the magic of summer.
    The Grand Finale fabric will definitely help me transition to the crisp cool Autumn days. Thank you.

  309. We have new young neighbors that have been painstakingly redoing a poorly built amish house.
    They bit off more than they expected! She has painted the house bright yellow, burnt orange, dark purple, green and blue. Colorful. She would like me to teach her how to make some accessories for her house. The fabric would look great in her house.

  310. WOW someone is going to be very lucky to win these fabrics.

    After years of not having a dining room, I finally live in a home that has one but have been without a dining room table and chairs for five years since I moved in. Now I have a new to me and absoultly beautiful table and chairs. What a pleasure it is to sit in the dining room to eat. In fact, many who come over to visit just want to stay and sit in my dining room. What would be better than some lovely placemats and a fabric bowl to decorate my table?

  311. I would love these beautiful fabrics to “fall” my way as they are the colour of the leaves I collect in the fall to use as inspiration, prints, and for sun printing.
    Take Care
    Janette

  312. I’m sewing quilts for Project Linus and either of these bundles would make a great quilt for some child going thru a tramatic situation – my favorite activity any time of year, but I especially love Fall.

  313. Fall is time to make a table runner in fall colors to use for Halloween, Thanksgiving and through the fall and towards Christmas. I think autumn colored leaves for this year.

  314. The activity would be the mad dash to finish that year long (or two or three) quilt project just in time to enter it in the local county fair in hopes of winning a blue ribbon, or better yet, a Best in Show. The best part is that during the fair you also get the see the years workings of all the other quilt artists. There will be sighs, gasps, and oh isn’t that beautiful. A very busy, but still one of my favortie times of the year because of this activity.
    Marilyn in Arkansas

  315. Those wonderful browns and golds would be perfect for placemats and napkins! There is enough to share with my BFF and Daughter-in-Law, a newbie to the sewing world. Hope we win!

  316. My favorite fall fiber project will be finishing up a cabled wool scarf. Also, my first quilt to layer up and maybe attempt quilting myself. In addition, working on another quilt top.

  317. I had to donate my stash of fabrics to Dollars for Scholars when we moved across country; I am starting over again getting a stash together so I can quilt. I am disabled/retired now and have plenty of time to quilt but very little to quilt with. Winning such a great group of colors and fabrics such as these would get me up and going again.

  318. I’ve always sewn for economy and practicality, and look for creative ideas to use up leftover fabrics. Fall is my favorite season, and I want to trace fallen leaves onto soft fabrics, stitch them onto squares for pillows, tote bags, book covers, old t-shirts or other tops to cover a stain or tear, and see how creative I can be with them. In the last few years taken up art, in various mediums, and am trying to start a collage using fabrics to make a semi-abstract landscape. So many possibilities await!

  319. I love both of these fabric bundles and would be delighted to win. Fall brings to mind leaves – bright colors yellows, reds, greens, browns – maybe a table topper for Thanksgiving.

  320. Wonderful fabrics! In Romania, where I live, such fabrics are hard to find. I am working on a wall quilt for my son now, following his directions. He made the model himself. Wish me luck!
    simone, Romania

  321. Fall is my most favorite time of year! I’m currently working on a Falling Leaves quilt for my husband, shhhh…he doesn’t know it’s for him! He comments on it every day how nice it’s turning out! Can’t wait to see his face when I give him his very OWN quilt!!

  322. They are so pretty! I really like table runners and tote bages. I love being able to change them at will. It has been 3 years since I have done some major sewing but now that my son is 3 I can actually finish a project now. I am so looking forward to getting my teeth into a project.

  323. I have just finished, in time for my first granddaughter’s first birthday, a soft fabric photo book with photos of her family. I quilted each page with a photo of her with a family member.

  324. I love to paint gourds for fall and put them everywhere. Some are witches and can be dressed with fabric instead of paint, some are pumpkins. I hope to make a turkey this fall with a fabric tail from some of my stash! Josie Davis

  325. I grew up on ghost stories and horror movies. My favorite fall quilting activity involves graves, bats, scarecrows, body parts, and leaves in all rustic fall colors.

  326. Living in the Midwest U.S. allows for several months of fall and winter indoor activities as many can attest to. To fill those evenings after work and weekends of not tending gardens, I make a variety of objects one of which is creating cards using unique fabric color palettes and patterns. The cards are made for a local children’s hospital palliative (hospice) center. The care team of the hospital sends hundreds of cards to families for a variety of reasons and enjoy the fabric and paper cards that I put together for them. My challenge is using fabric colors and patterns in a unique way to help brighten a family’s day. It would be a pleasure and honor to be able to use your fabrics for this endeavor. Thank you for the opportunity to explore with new colors and patterns. Robin

  327. I am new to quilting and really like the Quilting Daily web site. I have learned so much from you already and am looking forward to making some of the projects I have seen here. I will keep coming back to check for more information and new patterns. Thank you.

  328. I am new to quilting, my husbands family got me started a couple years ago by making blocks for the family quilt, I think I would like to start my first small project 🙂

  329. I love fabric and working with it! Mostly I sew table runners and/or quilts. I’ve been working on my LQS’s BOM, and it’s going well. I’d love to start a Christmas quilt since i’ve never had one to put out for the holidays.

  330. I recently saw the Australian Aboriginal Art exhibit at the Seattle Art Museum – the rich colors of your fall fabrics remind me of the earthy paintings we saw on display. Your fall fabrics would be perfect to create a memory quilt of some of the Down Under nature scenes and aboriginal culture we experienced while viewing this amazing exhibit.

  331. My favorite fall project is to make a quilt so can hand quilt it in a lap hoop during the colder days and nights. I also like doing some crafty projects with my little grandnieces for presents they can give (like pot holders for hot dishes and painting bird houses). Thanks for this wonderful giveaway.

  332. I love the cool fall weather when I can sit at my sewing machine in the evenings and crank out some nice big quilts, then hand stitch the binding while watching football! It’s wonderful to have a warm quilt on your lap in the fall.

  333. Before I can begin any more projects, I must make my new living room drapes, yards and yards of them. The fabric has been here much too long and the windows need some warmth for winter. Then I will begin Christmas projects.

  334. My favourite fall fabric project this year will be to finish a UFO that will be perfect in my son’s new kitchen – now I have a good reason to get back to it.

  335. We are having a wedding in the family this autumn. so my favorite fall projects this year are related to our bride and her new home. I haven’t been able to quilt for the last couple of months for health reasons, but that hasn’t stopped me from planning and gathering the just-right fabric.

  336. As a complete quilting beginner, my project for this coming winter is to experiment with the disappearing nine patch. I already have enough fabric bits for one patch, thanks to an enthusiastic friend and can’t wait to get started.
    This patch doesn’t look too difficult but gives the impression of being very complicated. I am sure will lead to some pretty and useable items – a bag, cushion covers and so on. Aiming for a full quilt in the future – Here’s hoping!

  337. I happened to see a small exhibit of quilts and got some great ideas I just have to try before I forget. Who doesn’t need another quilt with the cold weather coming!

  339. This is the time of year that I make quilts and blankets for gifts, holiday, and community charities. The fall colors are warm and the holiday fabrics get me in the mood for the upcoming holiday events.

  340. love! love fall colours. I just found a pattern i would love to try for a bed topper quilt in fall colours. Been dabbling a bit in designing my own fabrics. Of course no quilter ever has enough fabric. lol

  341. This time of year is always busy because I am feverishly trying to finish as many projects as I can in time to enter them in the local county fair. I have high hopes for this year, I entered 12 projects!

  342. My family is finally moving stateside so we will be able to have a family Thanksgiving. We haven’t had one in 6 years since. I’d love to make table linens for our first family feast.

  343. Now that it’s a tiny but cooler – under a 100 that is here in Texas – I’m working on quilts again. Gorgeous fall color batiks for a friend’s birthday! Plus I’ve signed up for a new round of fiber embellishment classes!

  344. These fabrics look amazing. I recently acquired a batik cloth which is meant to be mounted onto a frame for the wall. However, as my Autumn project, I’m thinking of creating a large patchwork border around it and converting it into a lined duvet cover, rather than a quilt, as this would be more practical.

  345. My favorite fall fiber project? It’s gotta be felting ATCs, so ez and pleezy, (as in pleasing) to do! Wrapped up in my favorite oversized sweater of course!

  346. Working on a wall hanging that I had hoped to enter in the NYS Fair competition, but life got in the way. Back surgeries for my son and for my hubby, my sister’s cancer, visiting out of state family and celebrating our 50th anniv. Now that things are settling down, I look forward to completing the wallhanging for our guild quilt show next spring.

  347. This is the year that my mother enters her 8th year of Alzheimer’s and our the beginning of our 3rd year of taking care of her, by ourselves, at home. It is the year that my brother went into a coma after a brief illness, for 3 solid months and his journey (and mine by his side) from Anchorage Alaska, to Seattle Washington, to Portland, Oregon..nearer to me, it is the year that his wife, my sister-in-law entered the last and final stage of Kidney Disease and needs the donation of a kidney to save her life as she also battles dialysis three times a week for 4 hours a day and osteoporosis that broke a hip in Seattle, and her pelvis in Oregon as she followed my brother from state to state in his treatment. It is also the summer that one of my best friend’s son was hit by a car that drove into a flashing light crosswalk and caused massive brain trauma to him. This has been the year, the summer, the time that has caused me to be in 100 places at once, doing all I can to physically support and help my family and friends, be at bedsides, and give transportation, and to make quilts for comfort, and art quilts for donation to my causes to raise awareness through blogging and money for treatments for Alzheimer’s etc. The only thing that makes me feel better than being there for those that I love, is quilting and sewing..and oh yes, getting beautiful fabric to do that with!!!!

  348. Fall – the best season of the year full of gold and red, mountains changing every few hours – pure beauty and time to start working on Christmas presents – those fabrics would be perfect for new table lining for my mother.

  349. I love to make fall table runners and placemats! My leftover scraps usually end up as mug rugs or coasters. Fall is one of my favorite times to sew! I find the changing colors inspirational.

  350. I am so inspired by this web site! I haven’t quilted for a while because my beloved Bernina 830 from 1973 has finally reached the end of it’s very productive life. It is not easy to let go. A recent move also left me with a bag of fabric meant for the discar
