Fall into Fall Giveaway

Like many of us, I love fall.  I love the colors of Fall, even though living in  Southern California we really do not see spectacular fall colors in nature.  But, to help welcome in Fall I wanted to participate in the Fall into Fall giveaways and play with some Fall colors.   There are close to 200 bloggers participating in this event.  I hope you will pop by the other blogs too!

You may know that I love to go shopping with a purpose.  Needless to say I had fun shopping for Fall fabrics for this giveaway. 

I used the AccuQuilt GO! Fall Medley die to cut these applique pieces for this Fall into Fall giveaway. And had a blast cutting these applique pieces.  The Fall Medley die also works on the new GO! Baby too!  












 


The winner may want to use these to turn into a skinny quilt, table runner, embellish dish towels or an apron, or do some other creative project with them.  The possibilities are endless.

If you want to win these Fall applique pieces, all you need to do is leave a comment on this post.  I will randomly select a winner on the evening of October 15th.

Followers can also leave an extra comment, for an extra entry in this giveaway.

Lastly, to win, I need a way to contact you.  NO REPLY bloggers are disqualified.  If you are not certain, please check the page with the tab, at the top of this page, labeled "giveaways".  About the middle of the page you'll find info on how you can verify your blog settings to ensure you can be contacted if you leave a comment.  Or, if you are in doubt, lease your email address in your comment!

Happy Fall!

Those GO cutters are going to make kitting up and giveaways a breeze! I would love to win the pieces...I would like to make a table topper for the season. I've seen so many bloggers homes with lots of handmade goodness that I decided I need to make ME a few items....I tend to make things to give away and hardly have anything I made for myself...maybe 2011 will be MY SELFISH YEAR!!! LOL.
