It's finally here. The Fall Into Fall Quilt Bloggers Giveaway has officially begun. From October 1st to October 15th, bloggers who also quilt have joined in a super fun blog hop. Debi who blogs at Quilting with Debi has organized a fabulous Fall event. Discover MANY wonderful blogs, make new blogging friends and perhaps win a prize or two from the giveaways. Each participating blogger is hosting a giveaway on their site. Visit the blog hop site to find a list of the quilting bloggers on the right side and the business bloggers on the left. Join in the blog-hopping fun! I first participated in the Fall Into Fall Blog Hop two years ago as a blog visitor. I had such a good time that I've been hoping since then that Debi would host another blog hop, but this time I wanted to participate with a giveaway.
I love Fall! Here in Georgia we do experience a colorful season change. I love the falling leaves....
visiting pumpkin patches and eating pumpkin treats
One of my most favorite things is to visit the apple orchards and warehouses in the North Georgia Mountains. We didn't have experience apple season growing up in Louisiana. (Crawfish season is something we did embrace)
Reading pumpkin and apple stories to primary students for years and watching "It's the Great Pumpkin, Charlie Brown." Yahoo for Fall!
I know you're saying enough of the Fall Tribute. Where's the giveaway? I searched my sewing room. I wanted my giveaway to reflect Fall, but also help reduce my stash. I remembered that I still had lots of fabric from making my own Good to Go bag. Lots of luscious Chelsea Lane fabric in fall tones from Pat Sloan. That was it. The past few days I've been in my sewing room putting the new bag together.
This Summer I had the opportunity to use my friend Jane's Studio Cutter from Accuquilt. This made my project easier as most of the fabric was already cut into strips. The Good to Go bag from Silver Thimble Quilt Company is made from string-pieced blocks.
My giveaway is this Good To Go tote bag Plus
an eyeglass/sunglass case to match the bag.
To enter the giveaway, please leave a comment telling me your favorite thing about Fall. For an extra chance to win, please leave an additional comment saying that you have signed up to become a Follower of my blog or tell me that you already follow my blog.
