Week 1, October Giveaway!

If you were a reader around these parts this time last year, you'll remember last October. For those who weren't, or those who have forgotten, here's how October goes.

See, October is my favorite month. It's when New England really puts on a glorious show of color, the nights get crisp and quilt-worthy, the days are full of crystal-blue skies and the smell of leaves. It's also my birthday month! So I like to spread the joy, and the fabric, with some giveaways!

Every full week in October, I'll start a giveaway post on Monday, and announce a winner on the Friday at the end of the week. Everyone who enters throughout the month will also be entered for a big blow-out fifth prize, which will be announced later this month.

Up this week?





Five Tula Pink fat quarters, the two on the left being from Plume, and the three on the right being from the long out of print collection, Flutterby.

Want a shot? Leave me a comment telling me your favorite thing about fall. Is it baking? The return of the pumpkin latte? The end of the summer humidity? Tell me!

And that's it. One comment per person. If you'd like to Facebook, Tweet or blog about it, that's awesome, but I'm not asking anyone to jump through hoops--I've learned my lesson, because hoops bug my bum leg. :) The only hoop I'll ask you to jump through is to make sure that you leave me a way to contact you--if your blogger profile doesn't have an email available for me to use, please leave your email address in the comment. Nothing makes me sadder than being unable to contact a winner!

Good luck!

EDIT: This giveaway is now closed!

Always have adored fall - even as a child. My fettish is pumpkins and finally eating priced right squash!!!! I love squash!

robin said...

My favorite thing about fall is the relief from the heat and humidity. I'm not a hot-weather gal. ;)

Jenny said...

I love being able to wear shorts with a sweatshirt! One of my favorite things...don't ask why but it just makes me smile, I guess best of both seasons!

felicity said...

Whee! I adore October - the crispness in the air, the cool nights, the opportunity to start wearing sweaters and socks again....and it's my birthday month. Yay!

Anya said...

I love that my birthday, my husband's birthday, and our anniversary are in October! Thanks for the chance!

Lexilooo said...

Fall is my favorite season, though I miss being in New England! It just isn't the same in DC! I love that it is turtleneck sweater season again :)

Megan said...

Hooray for October! I always look forward to the return of my comfy gray sweatpants (the same ones my husband loves to hate), pumpkin bread, and butternut squash soup

Alisa said...

I love the California weather in the fall. We don't have changing leaves, but the weather begins to cool and the blue sky and white puffy clouds are lovely.

Diane N said...

I like the pretty fall colors!

Snoodles said...

I love fall because of Thanksgiving! I'm really not all that crazy about the cooler weather....I know winter is around the corner, and me no likes winter! LOL Thanks for the chance to win!

Mimi said...

I love the fall for taking hikes on the trails behind our house - the colours are breathtaking and perfect for photo shoots!

Sharon said...

I love autumn. It's the best season of the year! You don't have to run the air conditioner anymore after the blazing heat of summer and it's time for football! I love to sit and watch football while I quilt. You don't even have to pay attention, just sew!

Tong said...

I'm definitely loving the end of the unbearable humidity, and I didn't even think about pumpkin latte until you just mentioned it! Now I have to make a trip to Starbucks tomorrow morning =P Thanks for sharing and spreading the joy!

Sheila said...

I love autumn, too. Especially in my hometown, which is in Northern Ontario...lots of gorgeous colour and crisp, clean air. Thanks so much for offering up such a great giveaway!

Marcia W. said...

Autumn - lots of birthdays in the family, mine included - I like the B'day get togethers with family and food.

quilary said...

We're heading into Spring in Australia, but what I like about autumn is that it's getting cool enough to have hot chocolate and cinnamon toast in the afternoon when I come in from work!

bryana said...

I'm just so excited for boots and sweater dresses why is fall only a few short months?

Happy Cottage Quilter said...

My favorite thing about Fall is decorating the house. Living in the deep south, we don't have the fall colors from nature, so we bring the Fall indoors :-) Thanks for the fun giveaway.

Vesuviusmama said...

My favorite thing about fall is the smell of woodsmoke in the air. Well, and the giveaways from the Mad Quilting Librarian! :)

Heather A said...

I love the switch from summer clothes to sweaters and socks and real shoes. And scarves. And hot chocolate. And the colours. And riding my bike through crispy, coloured leaves.

From one librarian to another.

Kim said...

Fall is my favorite too! I get to cook without getting hot, I am inspired to make more quilts ( to put over my chilly feet) , and there are PUMPKINS!!!!!! Thank you so much for an awesome giveaway!!!!

Kathy H said...

Fall is my favorite season, cooler weather, the colors of the leaves, apples and cider and wearing a favorite jacket.

Caroline said...

I LOVE to bake!!! There is such an abundance of apples, zucchini, and rhubarb, that I bake breads and pies and bars. They love me at work, because I take a lot of it there. You see I love to bake it, but if I ate it all, I would weigh 300 lbs. LOL!

deserae said...

My favorite thing about fall is wearing sweaters! :) Lol.

Peach Rainbow said...

Well, we don't have the 4 seasons here, but I love all the colorful leaves of Fall :D

MoeWest said...

I think my favourite thing about October is the leaves changing colour.

Peaceful Piecer said...

I enjoy the cooler temps. Thanks for a chance to win!

Kirsten and Tracy said...

When it finally feels like fall in AZ, like around Halloween, I love the below 100 degree temps! And wearing snuggly, long sleeved tshirts!

Thanks for the chance to win!
