  1. I love fall because of the colors and coolness of the nights. Plus all the colors come at me screaming for a new autumn quilt. Would love to put those fabric colors to a new quilt. Thanks for the opportunity to win.

  2. I love the rich colors of fall but the thing that I love best about it is ME! I was born on the first day of fall so I get to celebrate it every year.

  3. My favorite thing about Autumn is Autumn – it’s that time of year to get ready for cooler temps, awesome colors, changing seasons, celebrating national pride with family and friends, and getting those quilts finished and ready to give as gifts!

  4. I love fall the onset of cooler weather and the orange , red and brown colors of the leaves and eating corn on the cob..not wait pumpkins…. lol their has to be some green left in their somewhere.

  5. The colors! We’re fortunate to able able to visit New England every autumn, home of autumn colors, and lots of great quilt shops! Autumn in Kentucky is pretty special too.

  6. Autumn is my favorite time of year. The colors are just bursting with brightness. It seems nature is using the best colors for last before the drab winter days take over.

  7. What I love about fall is that it comes with cooler weather when I hit the point of being tired of the heat. I also love to see the tree leaves turn color.

  8. Autumn is a de-stressing time for me. The colors are so beautiful and the hub-bub of life is quieter. I have always been drawn to fabrics in fall colors, I guess it is a natural thing for me, I find them comforting.

  9. Finally a nice cool breeze after weeks of scorching hot sun. I dread the coming winter, but I love autumn and the chance to get back into my favorite sweaters. Just too wonderful.

  10. I love the cooler weather of fall after a long hot summer. The color of the leaves can be very inspiring when a quilter looks at them. I love the colors of the fabrics you have chosen to give away. BTW, I so much enjoy your magazine. Good luck to all those who enter the contest.

  11. My favorite thing about autumn is the change of weather and the lovely fall fabrics available. I live in Florida and Fall brings us some cooler weather after the hot summers.

  12. Love the colors of fall.How mother nature has the most beautiful paint brush. and the to be able to transfer those colors into a quilt to wrap in just beautiful

  13. What I like about Fall the most is the wonderful color of the leaves that makes you want to make a beautiful Fall Quilt featured in any of the Fons & Porter magazines! I was there was a subscription for the Quilting Quickly magazine! I have the Fon’s & Porter Love of Quilting and Easy Quilting! I would also love to win the fat quarter bundles!

  14. Autumn is my favourite time of year – not too wet, not too dry, not too hot, not too cold. The beautiful shades of green, brown, yellow and red flood the countryside and makes it look like a million dollar painting.

  15. The weather is my favorite of the year followed closely by all the amazing colors and flavors of the produce! All the veggies and fruit are brilliant and sooo tasty!!

  16. I love the colors of autumn, and the beginning of a period of rest. The garden is harvested, the grass is not growing so quickly and its time to get ready to stay indoors and quilt.

  17. Autumn is one of my favorite seasons because of the vibrant colors. I live in the Pacific Northwest and we often take road trips along the Cascade Highway so we can capture the beauty of the colors and the changing of seasons.

  18. I love the crisp feel in the air and the colors….Oh the colors are my favorite and use them in so many of my quilting projects. And then there are pumpkins! I have decorative ones in my sewing room all year round. Just love the fall!

  19. Autumn means beautiful falling leaves in our Pioneer Park with it’s huge old trees. It also means it is almost time to head south to Arizona:)

  20. I take down my summer quilts and hang my many fall quilts on walls and over furniture. I love fall quilts and have many to decorate with. I love the colors of fall and on fall quilts.

  21. Autumn … Nature’s way of exploding rich colors which provides a perfect pallet to re-create onto fabric. Paintbrush Studio’s has captured this season … Autumn … perfectly!

  22. The best thing about fall is that there is more time to spend with family and friends outside enjoying the color changes and the cooler weather. Having some quilts to keep us warm by the fire pit helps too!!

  23. I live in the South and the summers are really hot…which I love. But when fall comes and the nights get cooler so I can sit on the porch before bed and sleep with the windows open…heaven!

  24. Autumn brings not only beautiful colors and crisp days and nights but it also brings the need to quilt those cozy curl up quilts! There’s nothing like curling up with a cozy, beautiful quilt and a fantastic quilt magazine!

  25. I cannot pinpoint just one thing that I love about Fall. The colors, the shorter days, the crisp cooler air. Halloween and Thanksgiving! Harvest time! Sunflowers, Scarecrows,Pumpkins, Indian Corn. Everything about is my favorite thing!!

  26. The cool weather is my favorite part of Autumn. Just the thought of sewing a guilt and wrapping myself in it makes me smile. Its like a warm hug…so comforting!

  27. I look forward to autumn every year because it’s cozy. The end of the sweating Texas heat with comfy temps to snuggle under loved quilts. It’s family time for me with anniversary, thanksgiving dinner (that I cook for both sides of our fam). My favorite time of year!! Autumn=Happiness 🙂

  28. I also enjoy the cooler temps. I live in Idaho so we do not get to see much in the color changes in the trees as the forests are all pine type trees. I used to live in Ohio and one of the things I missed the most was the color changes in the fall. Fall reminds me of family and home

  29. The colors and cooler temps and the thought of being cozy in the house with family close by. Seeing the sun shine through the colors in the trees. Wondering what projects I need to get done before Christmas.

  30. I love the changing colors of Fall, crisp cool nights, delicious apples, pumpkins still growing on the vine, Thanksgiving and Family! I love Springtime, but Autumn season has always been my favorite!

  31. I would have to say the colors of the mountains. I live in east Tennessee, and the colors of the trees, mountains, flowers, gardens, pumpkins, gourds, all have God’s touch!

  32. I love the cool air and the smell of the impending, cleansing winter. I enjoy the visual stimulation of the leaves turning colors. It’s like they are showing off their brilliance one last time before the trees sleep. It is the twilight of the seasons.

  33. Living around the Houston area of Texas you have to turn to something with color as in the fabrics because we do not have the changing of the colors in our landscape as those in other parts of the States..Love the colors of Autumn season…

  34. I love the clean, crisp feel in the air. It inspires me to make a quilt using all the beautiful colors of fall, orange, yellow, red, gold, purple and browns!

  35. The last show of beautiful colors befoe the cold, drabness of winter, plus the cooler weather. Awesome when we actually get to enjoy a real Autumn in the midwest!

  36. What I like about Autumn is cool and scent filled, unlike Spring where the world is waking up from its dormancy of Winter. Autumn produces a desire to snuggle and prepare to burrow. It allows us to work with heavier fabric and projects with more comfort as it is spread over our laps. Autumn has a certain scent unlike any other time you are not in a rush to get any planting done for the harvest has come in. Autumn is the time to prep your sewing room, your kitchen and your home for that rush of Family gatherings that are coming. Autumn is the time where we begin to think of all our blessings and we are content to stay at home rather than go to the lake, beach, or shopping mall. That is what I love about Autumn,

  37. Autumn is, literally, bittersweet. The colors are a last blaze defiance to the knowledge of the muted cold palate to come. Autumn is nature’s way of not going “gentle into that good night” and one of the lessons we can learn from her, if we just listen.

  38. I love the cool air, the fall colors, and apple picking with my grandchildren. I most of all love Thanksgiving, it is my favorite holiday. It is the four F holiday(family, food, fun, football). And of course I love the sewing time.

  39. Autumn brings with it so many vibrant colours I love to sit at my desk nestled in our bay window and watch the ‘changing of the guard’ as nature gives way from the shades of green to the red, yellow and burnt umber colours of Autumn. I take this time to complete my quilting projects and begin the knitting of socks, scarves and jumpers to be ready for the first snowfall of winter. I love Autumn because for me it is a time of transition with a spectacular colour palette thrown in for all to watch =)

  40. I love the beautiful trees when they are turning. I love pumpkins, craft shows, Thanksgiving, getting together with friends, apple cider by the fireplace. I love just about everything about autumn- it’s my favorite season.

  41. Autumn is one of my 2 favorite seasons – it brings the end of a long hot humid summer with perfect weather: cool and breezy. Fall’s colors soothe and comfort after a summer of bright bold hues that keep my life stirred up. It renews my spirit like spring does after a cold drab winter. God knew what he was doing with the changing of our seasons!

  42. My very first quilt was made in beautiful fall colors as a request from my daughter who had moved to Phoenix and wanted a reminder of Iowa autumns. Now I live in Phoenix too and love the fall colors for the same reason.

  43. I love the warm and rich colors of fall as well it has a special scent of crisp air yet warm sun. Such a relaxing time before the long and cold winter of northern New Bruswick, Canada.

  44. Autumn….cooler temps, falling leaves, open windows to hear the birds and feel fresh breezes, soup on to simmer and more time to quilt!!! My favorite season of the year!

  45. Pumpkin pie. That’s my favourite thing about autumn, is making pumpkin pie from fresh pumpkins. My son ADORES pumpkin pie, and goes into paroxysms of bliss when I make it. He nags me to let him lick the bowl or the mixing paddle (powered mixer), or if he can have the first slice, “Mommy, is it ready yet? Is it ready, yet? Can I have a piece, yet? When’s dinner, so we can have dessert sooner…? Mooooooommmmm….”
    Dang it, now I need to make some pumpkin bread, just to tide me over! Good thing I have canned puree in the pantry!

  46. Cooler weather, Halloween, color of leaves changing, pumpkin pie and Thanksgiving dinner with family. and and and… well you get the picture. Thanks so much.

  47. Cooler days and nights after the hot, humid southern summer. The autumn colors of the changing trees are beautiful and the scent of the air is even different.

  48. I like the changing colors of the trees and living in AZ. it means cooler weather, and I can turn the AC off and open the front door. Plus there is more time for quilting. Thank you for the chance to win.

  49. I love the colors of Autumn Watching the trees change and also knowing I will share another Birthday with one of my grand daughters making my mom’s pumpkin spice cake for my birthday. I love making quilts & wall hangings with the deep rich colors of autumn .

  50. There is a small woods behind our house and once the leaves start changing colors, I love to look out at it each morning to see how much has changed since the day before.

  51. Autumn has the most beautiful and relaxing colors of the year. The cooler nights of fresh air for sleeping after running the AC for the hot summer nights! Kids are back in school so Mom has more time to quilt!!! 🙂

  52. I love the colors of fall, the feel of crispness in the air, the whisper of the fall breezes through the trees, the hint of cool moisture in the air, the crunch of leaves under your feet as you walk through the woods, pumpkins.

  53. Autumn is the most beautiful season with all its changing colors, cooler temperatures and special times just created for wrapping oneself in a lovely quilt.

  54. Since I live in Tucson, Arizona; Autumn is the first reprieve from the blast of Summer furnace heat and I start to feel more human. That means it’s time to step up my quilting with all the lush, warm colors of Fall remembered from back East. Our colors in the West stay the same all the time=BEAUTIFUL & INVITING!

  55. So many things I love about Fall/Autumn…where do I start. The beautiful colors in the foliage (and fabric), Pumpkins (Pumpkin Pie or Bread), fall festivals, family reunion in Missouri, Thanksgiving with family and my birthday in September. Not to mention raking the leaves and shuffling through them after they are in the pile. I am an adult but refuse to grow up on some stuff 🙂
    Thank-you for great giveaways!

  56. My beautiful daughter was born in early fall, almost 39 years ago. I also have a granddaughter born in early fall, nearly 9 years ago now. Of course, that is what I love best!

  57. Cooler weather and getting ready for all the holiday’s that come towards the end of the year where family gets together and is thankful for what we have been blessed with throughout the past year.

  58. Growing up on the family farm in South Dakota fall was always a busy and bustling time of year after a lazy, hot summer with the harvesting taking place. The colors seen in the changing foliage to the fragrances of mother earth as I would stroll along the cow path with my mom in the quiet Sunday evenings have stayed with me for the last 40+ years … fabric can and does take me back to those days and makes me proud to have been a farmer’s daughter!

  59. Living in the southwestern US we don’t have a great fall what I always called a great fall back home in the midwest. However, the first morning I step out of the house and the cooler air bites at my face always brings a smile.

  60. I live in Alaska where Fall comes quickly with wonderful colors that mark the Chugach Mountain Range. Leaves, crisp fall weather and the promise of a fire and hot chocolate to enjoy the outdoors before winter takes hold.

  61. What I like about Autumn is that it will start getting cooler around here. Texas is extremely hot right now. Of course summer goes through October here.lol Love the colors of the fabrics and so excited to get the fall edition of Quilting Quickly. I ordered it from you and can hardly wait for it to arrive. Thanks for the giveaway.

  62. The things I like best about fall are the colors, smells and that the apples on the family farm are ready to be picked and eaten. What a special time of the year.

  63. I look forward to fall because my life slows down from all the summer activities and allows me much more time to get into my quilting room to sew. It also means making my favorite comfort foods for my family and friends.

  64. I love the cool (but not cold) autumn breezes in my face, my hair, my lungs! The clean smell of the air, fabulous. Fall colors make me happy too.

  65. Fall and Spring are my most favorite seasons. Spring has the beautiful color of all flowers and of course Fall has the beautiful colors the spring flowers turn into after their time to be seen is gone. We know it is going to turn cooler so that quilt in our lap will be a pleasure to hand quilt and our legs will be more comfortable then when the heat of summer was making it to hot to enjoy our time quilting by hand.

  66. What do I love about fall? It welcomes the cooler temperatures and the end of hurricane season, the changing of the leaves, the smell of something good baking in the oven, back to school and the beginning of preparations to hibernate for winter – and stocking up in material for my winter quilting projects!

  67. I live in Florida and I lived in Indiana.The southern part called Brown County has the most beautiful Autum colors,from the leaves and trees and the animals that come out in the fall and winter.I love the cool breeze and changing of leaves and the Covered Bridge Festivals.Miss them.

  68. Autum is my favorite time of the year, changing colors are invigerating, air is cool and calm. It’s a relaxing time before we button down the hatches and snuggle under the warm quilts made with lots love.

  69. Fall colors remind me of bread baking in the oven, sitting by a warm fire drinking something warm. Cuddling under a blanket and laughing with gkids…

  70. Living in the South, I love the relief of cooler weather that the Fall Season brings. Everyone seems to retreat indoors and in some form or fashion you see people getting into more of a craft mode either to prepare for the holidays or to improve their homes inside. It is also my apple canning season. Yum!

  71. I have always wanted to go to New England in the Fall to see the Changing of the Leaves. Now I’m 82, and I probably won’t make it to New England, but I would be happy with a quilt in these fabrics to imagine the journey.

  72. The colors of the oak trees in the fall and the smell of the moisture in the air in the morning is glorious. The crisp feel of the air and the skim of ice on the horse waterer is a sign that things will not be so hot for a while. Love the autumn.

  73. I always looked forward to school starting because it meant a NEW box of 96 crayons! And then there were the boxes that had the sharpener! Most importantly the silver and gold crayons so i could capture the highlights and the beautiful and diverse colors of fall. I can still remember a portfolio I did with fall leaves on the cover. Favorite: the colors and sounds of fall.

  74. I love Fall. The air is waft with the first fires of the season. Children are getting new packs of crayons for school, and the Western Washington Fair is underway. Let’s not forget the changing colors of the trees…even here in Western Washington. The colored leaves accent our beautiful fir trees! Would be great to win!

  75. I love the cooler weather because it just “feels” like quilt weather … and the brown grass starts to green up and look healthy again. Fall and winter are the BEST times to quilt!

  76. I love the rich beautiful colors of fall. I also love the cool crisp air……a nice change from the hot humid summers here in the south. Thank you!

  77. Fall is the precursor to all of my favorite holidays! Halloween, Thanksgiving, Christmas and my favorite weather! The cooler weather inspires me to get my quilts finished.

  78. Autumn weather is cooler, but without the chill of winter yet. I love sitting outside in the mornings, wrapped up in a quilt, and having coffee on the porch.

  79. As a child, my favorite thing about autumn was going back to school. I loved getting new pencils, paper, and textbooks! Today, I still like autumn for this reason, even though I’m long out of school – I can hear the high school band practicing from my home, and look forward to the football games. Throw in a bonfire and s’mores, it doesn’t get any better.

  80. I love the colors of fall, the warm days and cool nights, the way nature is changing to get ready for the winter…..thank you for the chance to win some beautiful fabric!!

  81. Not only do I love the fall colours, I love the smell of the air in the fall. Harvest is nearly done and the quieter days of winter are ahead. Sometimes it just feels good to wear wool again!

  82. My favorite thing about fall is the complete seasonal cahnge:cooler air, just right for snugling under a quilt in front of the fireplace while sipping hot cider.

  83. I love the fall colors and smells. There is nothing more relaxing than to take a walk in the woods during fall color season. It allows you to relax and reflect about how wondrous the change of the season actually is.

  84. I love autumn when the air is cooler, less humid and so enjoyable to do whatever your heart desires. The colors are so lovely as the trees display the beauty of their changing leaves.

  85. I think the colors of fall are my favorite thing about that season. I don’t like the cold, so I always hate to see it come because I know winter is close.

  86. Autumn is my favorite time of the year, I love the weather, I love the colors, I am calmer and at the same time I have more energy. When it’s too hot, I daydream about autumn and when its to cold I daydream about autumn. My house is all done in autumn colors because that is my comfort.

  87. Cool, crisp air, apples ripening on the trees, pumpkins on the vines. Beautiful fall colors of flame red, bright orange and calm yellow inspire me to pull those fabrics from my stash and plan a quilt or wallhanging. A Fall Shop Hop is the perfect way to see the countryside and visit all the shops to see their fall fabriss and get ideas for new projects.

  88. Here in Phoenix there is not much (any?) change of color in the fall, but I do remember the exquisite colors from my childhood in New York. Oh! how I miss it!! But what I look forward to here is knowing that eventually the temperature will cool down a bit and I can start walking and hiking again in the beautiful desert mountains. Even the desert can be inspiring with it’s textures and colors… especially the awesome sunrises and sunsets, and the shadows cast on that rare rain-cloudy day.

  89. My kids play volleyball, so we spend the fall traveling to tournaments for the school season. I love watching them enjoy themselves. And traveling is beautiful at that time of year.

  90. The deep rich colors of autumn are my favorite, and the change in the season to the wonderful temps with less humidity and the coolness of the evenings. Just love everything about autumn!

  91. M favorite thing about autumn is that I retired from teaching at the end of this past school year and when school starts again I will be quilting instead of writing lesson plans, attending staff meetings, Open House, Parent conferences and professional development!!

  92. I love Autumn not only for the colors that appear but it reminds me of harvest time, the upcoming holidays but mostly the antique colors that were used in quilts decades ago. I love those colors our ancestors used to make quilts which were mostly autumn colors. I cherish the quilts I have that were made by my grandmother and greatgrandmother using mostly autumn colors and would love to win the fabrics to make a quilt similiar to those they made. I love quilting!!!!!!!!!!!!

  93. Fall is my favorite time of year to go camping. Cool temperatures, warm fires and cozy quilts. Walking in fallen crunchy leaves was always fun as a child and even more fun now!!

  94. I absolutely love autumn! Everything from fresh apple cider to pumpkin pie, from crisp leaves crunching under foot to the sound of dried corn stalks in a maze as you wander through. I love Autumn best!

  95. I had the good fortune to visit New Hampshire, Vermont, and upstate New York last fall, and those glorious colors are most definitely at the top of the list!

  96. I live in Nova Scotia, Canada. My backyard is full of different trees which show off their spetacular colors in the Fall. The red’s are my favourite. It would be a very enjoyable task to get a quilt as lovely as that.

  97. In the fall the weather starts getting cooler and the days are still light enough to get many things done. It is the start of a new gardening project and another quilt or two. What could be better!!!

  98. Hi! I love the cooler air and the changing leaves, with all the colors! It’s perfect for a sweater or to cuddle up with a quilt and to read a book or to go for a walk! It’s also perfect for staying inside and making quilts, too! You start to get the feeling for the holidays to come! It kind of exciting! I love it! It’s my favorite time of year! It’s also a good time for camping, not too hot, not too cold, just right and you can sit outside and do handwork comfortably. Thank you for the chance to win!

  99. I love the fall not only for the fall colors but for the cool crisp mornings where you can go out and watch nature. I really enjoy watching the squirrels running through the branches gathering their food for the winter and the chatter between them and my Chihuahuas. Talking all this in thinking about all the quilts I have made through the year and how happy family will be when they get them Christmas morning.

  100. The colors are just to die for. The reds oranges yellows just make my heart sing. Here in Colorado there is always quilting inspiration in autumn

  101. I love autumn in Canada, with its warm colors, I love the sound of leaves crunching under your feet. I love going to the park and see the falling leaves and the light wind that sways and the noise of the children who go to school. All this is warm, even when the season now brings the first frosts. I live in Italy but all this is in my heart. Autumn is my favorite season. Silvana

  102. I love stepping outside and the air feels different and even smells different. And the changing colors are incredible. God is so artistic!! (Probably a quilter.)

  103. Like everyone else, I like the fall colors and the cooler days. But I look forward to the coming of winter and hopefully snow. I love snow and quite winter walks. Fresh apples to harvest, apple butter to make.

  104. Autumn my favorite time of the year. Picking apples for apple pies, drives to the country to see the changing colors of the trees. All the yellows , oranges, and red leaves, plus a stop at our favorite cider mill for hot cider and fresh donuts. It is the most relaxing time of the year.

  105. Fall is full of warm and inviting foods such as the smell of hot pumpkin pie, the rich color and taste of cranberries next to a slice of golden brown turkey. Rich colors and great food, yummy!

  106. I love the colors of fall – driving in the country with all the fields different colors reminds me of quilts. And after fall, comes winter. That’s quilt time. Time to piece, time to quilt and time to use the quilts that are already done.

  107. My favorite thing about Autumn is the color! We plan a driving mini vacation during peak color week just to revel in the beauty of nature’s colors. It’s food for the soul to help get through the long bleak winter.

  108. Autumn is my favorite season here in AZ. The sunsets are fabulous and I go to the high country to enjoy the sight and smells of the forest. It is so refreshing after the hot summer months to just enjoy what Mother Nature gives us.

  109. One of my favorite things is the crisp air, but mainly the wonderful colors of autumn. It makes my mind whirl with quilt patterns that just have to be made with these beautiful colors. When quilting in the winter months, the colors are so rich and wonderful that they take away the bitter cold of winter and make me think ahead to spring.

  110. love this time of the year with all the colors and when u take all the things you dried and collected that are ready to make so many different crafts thanks for the chance

  111. Autumn is the start of pile on the quilts season. I love the colors and the cool air. It is my favorite time to go camping – not too hot or too crowded. This year we are headed off to the North Rim to enjoy fall in the canyon. Should make a beautiful quilt and memories.

  112. Autumn is the most breathtaking time of year, the leaves start to change these beautiful array of browns, reds, yellows. but the best part is the smell, it is so clean and so aromatic that you can actually smell the colors of autumn. Its absolutely priceless!

  113. Autumn makes me think of football, cool crisp mornings and the crunch of leaves underfoot. I love the colors, the smells and the free time for quilting I gain by not having to tend the garden.

  114. Although I miss the heat of summer, I love the COLORS of autumn!! I look forward to baking and sewing with the cooler temperatures arriving!

  115. Fall is my favorite season. I love the change to crisp clean air after a hot and humid summer, and this summer has been incredibly humid. Love to see the leaves changing colors. Watch the kids go back to school, reluctantly. Football and fresh apples. Fall gives us a change to enjoy New England before we have to hunker down for a long winter!

  116. I love autumn because the weather is much cooler and the colors of the foliage is like a grand finale before the barrenness of the winter months! Nothing pleases me more than to take a walk with the crispness of the air and the deep blue of the skies, and yet I love the drama of the storm clouds playing in the sky.

  117. I love the autumn colors when the leaves are changing. The cooler weather puts me in a sewing/quilting mood more than anything. I do not like to rack the leaves the sound of them crunching as you walk on them tells me that a change is in the air.

  118. I love fall for many reasons: crisp cool air, the colors of the earth and sky as summer ends, fall holidays with goblins and family gatherins and especially the fact that I can turn off the A/C and save a bunch of money until it gets really cold and I have to turn on the heat! 😉

  119. Autumn is the vibrant colors that being a new quilter has open my eyes to and raking all the leaves in a pile only to jump in them like I did when I was a child many moons ago.

  120. My grandkids all know that my favorite color is “Autumn”. Ah, the oranges, dark greens, plums, reds, and golds – love them all! I would love to make a quilt with these beautiful fabrics. Hmm, what pattern?? So many ideas!

  121. My favorite things about Autumn are: the smell of the fall air, the harvesting all the rewards of summer and the beautiful fall colors. I look forward to my once a year trip to visit friends in Winterset, Iowa for the Covered Bridge Festival and going to Fons and Porter. I live in upstate New York. We drive to Iowa and take in all the beautiful fall scenery. We have been coming to Winterset, Iowa since 1967.

  122. Autumn is crisp and cool. A time to finish our canning and freezing down our produce for the winter ahead! Maples and oaks are at their best!

  123. I love all the beautiful colors of fall. And the temperature starting to cool down enough to snuggle with a loved one under a cozy quilt!

  124. Fall is my favorite season. The colors are outstanding just like the colorful fabrics in the bundle. I can remember fall always all year long….

  125. Fall colors are some of my favorite colors and they make me feel alive and wanting to go for walks among the colorful leaves!! Recreating those colors in a quilt gives me the feeling that I’m bringing glorious nature indoors.
    Thanks for your offer!

  126. My favorite thing about autumn would be the green leaves of summer giving way to the beautiful array of golds, reds, browns, and some purples. The air is not so humid, but crisp. It’s time for football.

  127. I love the sight and sounds of autumn, …orange colored leaves(my favorite color)although my children are all grown… school bells ringing….I live near a school….yellow leaves and buses..clear fresh cool air and harvesting from the garden!!
    Fall is always the best season

  128. My favorite thing about autumn is thunderstorms and after watching the lighning show, being able to curl up under a quilt or two and get really warm. My mom was afraid of storms so she used to get us up to watch what she called the light show on the blinds and then she went and hid. Result, I love thunderstorms!

  129. My favorite thing about Autumn is the beautiful colors of the leaves and the smell of the fresh cool country air and the leaves. God is the perfect artist.

  130. I love the colours of autumn, and a fall colours quilt is on my list. I enjoy the smells of autumn too and the crunch of leaves underfoot. Walking through the woods at this time is especially aromatic – the air has a nutty fragrance. Those chilly mornings with crisp fresh air and a touch of frost are great for a brisk walk.

  131. The thing I love most about autumn is the change of colours! Who needs additional entertainment? Just to curl up with a lap quilt and a warm drink and watch the leaves tumble across the lawn…I can’t wait!!

  132. Fall – harvest time – that is my favorite thing about this season. Colors are beautiful, canning and the beginning of a less busy time.

  133. I love autumn! It has always been my favorite time of year. I love the crisp cool days and all the colors of the Maple trees where I love in Pa. Fall is a fun time to quilt and my favorite colors to quilt with are all the golden colors of yellow, orange, red, brown , burgundy and green . It’s all Gods glory surrounding us:).

  134. I love the color changing of the leaves. The fresh air with a little bit of coolness to it is so great after being hot during the summer. The holidays during the fall – Thanksgiving (when you can get together with family and be reminded to be thankful), halloween (even though it might not really be a holiday, it is a fun time for kids to dress up and enjoy the activities associated with Halloween. Fall is just a beautiful time of the year.

  135. My favorite thing about Autum is the colors! I love how it seems that sunshine comes directly out of the bright yellow woods of birch trees!

  136. Autumn heralds the arrival of those bright, beautiful blue and gold days. The warm colors of the changing leaves stand out against the cool azure sky – simply stunning!

  137. Autumn/fall is my favorite time of the year. Besides being my birthday time – I love the colors of the season – the cooler weather, and the approaching holidays.

  138. I am thankful I live in an area of the changing seasons. I love the crispness of Fall, the leaves, the colors, the overall awesome beauty. I see peace and rest as the grass, trees and flowers prepare for their winter of slumber. And, then Spring and new life.

  139. I love the smells, colors and crispness of the air in the fall. I also love the anticipation and fun of planning for all the family holidays and get togethers starting in the fall. It is the time of year I gather my family, (each person like a lovingly made quilt block)near and draw comfort and warmth.

  140. My favorite season is Autumn. I love the colors, smell and the cool days after the hot summer days. Thanks for the chance to win this gorgeous fabric.

  141. I love the changes of Autumn! The cooler days; the leaves falling; the colors of orange, yellow & brown; the nights getting longer. It’s refreshing and energizing after the scorching days of summer. I think even more about making quilts!

  142. I love the cool crisp air and sunny days particularly here at the shore. I look forward to enjoying the harvest and celebrating Thanksgiving with the family. I like making autumn themed table runners and banners to celebrate the season.

  143. Living in Arizona, fall means an end (hopefully!) to our very, very hot weather. We start feeling like we can breathe outside again. It’s one of the best parts of the year!!

  146. I love the fall when nature’s colors change and air becomes crisp. A fall quilt project in fall colors would be great. Leaf peeping is a favorite past time in east Tennessee. I watch your show every Sunday. Great tips for a beginner quilter like me.

  147. Autumn reminds me of apples and the many beautiful colors they come in. Making apple butter with my Mom is an all time favorite thing to do. I love it!

  148. Fall is when the summer slows down to allow us to get ready for winter. The Autumn colors are absolutely beautiful. Those down to earth colors make the richest looking quilts. Would love to win these fall fabrics.

  149. Summer is light and bright and cheery and busy.
    On the other hand, autumn is filled with more intense, vibrant, beautiful and inspiring colors.
    Always look foreword to the change of seasons, both in quilting and in nature.
    The variety keeps things fresh and varied.

  150. When Autumn arrives it brings the cool, crisp air and the beautiful colors of the leaves. It’s a time to relax and take in all the beauty of the season. Autumn is my favorite time of the year, and I always start thinking of my next craft project.

  153. My favorite thing about Autumn are the colors! I love all the variations of reds, yellows, oranges, and browns mixed with the fading green.

  154. My favorite things about autumn are the cooler temperatures. I love putting on flannel PJs, sleep in flannel sheets under a feather down quilt. Delicious.

  156. I love the beautiful natural colors found in nature in the fall. God has so many colors in his paintbox to share with all of us. Also my birthday is in the fall so I get to celebrate it.

  157. I just moved from CT to Maryland and have no idea what type of weather
    the fall is down here. But, I will carry out my tradition of making on the first
    day there is a chill in the air my pork roast, winter squash and apple pie dinner.

  158. Autumn is a time to enjoy the beautiful rich colours that the season offers and head on inside as the chill begins to create those wonderful quilts that we have been planning over the summer months.

  159. What could be better in the fall/autumn time of the year than to start a beautiful Maple Leaf quilt with the fall colored fabrics. Love the fall colors in fabrics and in nature.

  161. I love the smell of the cool fall air, especially first thing in the morning or late a night. The leaves are changing to their beautiful colors, and the heat and humidity of summer are on their way out.

  162. In fall the weather is usually such that we can sit outside late into the evening and enjoy the fall colours and scents. My favourite season.
    If only it would stay longer!

  163. As the weather changes from hot to cool, I get to set by the fire and quilt all evening. Makeing a lap quilt for a friend is alway the first fall item.

  164. I think Fall is the most beautiful season here in Michigan. There are days when the sky has a purple hue even though the sun is shining, the contrast of that sky against the yellow, red and deep purple leaves is amazing I remember sitting in the bleachers at a high school football game on one of those perfect days and seeing the bright white of a church steeple above the trees, it was truly a breathtaking site I hope I never forget it.

  165. I love the colors of fall and seeing the reds, yellows and oranges on the trees as their leaves change and the smell of cider as it warms on the stove that tells you fall is here.

  166. All my senses get fully engaged in autumn, just like they do in quilting:
    the vivid autumn colors that emerge unexpectedly from what seems like monotone-green plants and trees, the texture of crunching leaves that invites me to roll around in them just like when I was a kid, the smell of the earth and burning leaves that conjures up soul-filled renewal , and the taste of glorious fall produce (I’m a sucker for apples of all varieties)!

  167. Fall is my favorite time of the year. The rich colors, and smells in the air, the cooler weather calls for a nice soft sweater. I have made several Halloween quilts inspired by fall.

  168. I love the fall colors. What once was green, may now be gold, or red, or orange or a combination of all those. Such vibrant colors make beautiful quilts.

  169. Autumn is… the turn of the leaves and apple cider, a quilt over your shoulders and smores by the fire, the colors of fall from green to red, in a new quilt just finished, warming the bed, pumpkins and squashes and corn stalks and firewood, and piles of fabric for the next quilt…feelin’ good!

  170. After the sweltering summers here in the South, the crisp fall air is always a welcome relief but I especially enjoy the morning mist that rises from the streams and ponds as the sun comes up .

  171. Cooler weather and less sunlight to beckon me outside away from my quilting projects help me appreciate autumn. Also, the colors of autumn inspire many creative moments in my life.

  172. I love the fall colors, especially the aspen trees here in Colorado and especially after wet spring and summers (unlike the past few years!) as there are many more shades of color in the trees.

  173. Fall…cooler Texas weather, Longhorn football games, family gatherings are all things I look forward to each year! The colors, the festivities, and sewing gifts are all things to look forward to Fall.

  174. What I love about Autumn is the changing of colors in the trees. My husband and I try to travel to different states so we can enjoy the beauty of that region. I also try to think of what the colors would look like in a quilt and what shape of patterns I would use.

  175. I live in Houston and fall is my favorite time of year. I know that when fall comes the weather will be cooler and then the miracle happens the colors of fall return. Beautiful.

  176. Autumn is a time to relax and enjoy the changing landscape, feel the start of a cool breeze and cooler nights ahead, and run through a pile of leaves kicking and screaming like your 7 years old again. Autumn, my favorite time of the year!

  177. I live where the leaves change during the fall. Even though driving along our curvy roads that time of year is an incredible experience, I think I could say that what I like most about fall is the smell. I know that sounds a little crazy, but I really think that’s it.

  178. Autumn means the beginning of school, cool weather, and a renewed energy. It means crisp new books, crunchy leaves under foot and a great desire to curl up with a new quilt.

  179. Autumn tells me the holiday season will soon be here. Its a time when we celebrate family gatherings, and give thanks and be grateful for what we have. Its a time to help others less fortunate.

  180. I enjoy the cooler temperatures….”soup making weather”…. and the beautiful colors…which turns my thoughts toward coming holidays and family!!

  181. My favorite thing about the fall is the leaves changing different colors. I also love to cuddle up with my quilt and read and enjoy the weather!

  182. The leaves. When I’m out walking, I always come home with a handful of beautifully colored leaves. If they were fabric, I’d sew them into a quilt.

  183. I love watching the trees turn all the beautiful colors of the fall, and I also love the cool crisp weather that is not too cold and not too warm. I love autumn all around.

  184. Autumn brings cooler weather to Florida. Normally we do not experience the change in
    Color of the leaves; therefore I enjoy the colors in my quilts!

  185. The best of Autumn is everything – changing colors of the leaves, a nip in air, the cheer of the kids outside knowing winter is coming, and the most special thing I wait
    for this time each year: ALABAMA FOOTBALL!!! hence my email address. I also love with a passion the Bible, Quilting and Arts and Crafts Shows.

  186. When you live in Arizona you learn to appreciate that change in the air, that drop in temperatures. We have to go north to see color but it is so worth it.

  187. I love autumn! Baking gingerbread, roasting marshallows in the fireplace, colorful fall leaves, soft plaid flannel shirts, cups of hot tea on a cool day, handknit socks in bright colors, pulling out the heavy quilts for all the beds, back-to-school preparations, pumpkins…I can’t wait! 🙂

  188. Fall means it is time to slow down my schedule and time to visit family, give thanks for the bounties summer has brought and the kaleidoscope of colors found in the leaves. Only God could creat this..no two alike. And of course pumpkin pie!

  189. Warm days, crisp cool nights. I love to see the crops being harvested, the brilliant colors of the leaves, and the transformation of the landscape.

  190. I love almost all things autumn! The colors, the cool crisp air, watching the animals put on heavier coats and getting stocked on food for the winter, and fires! I love the smell and feel of a nice fire! I only wish that I had a fireplace so I could enjoy it more often! There are so many things that I love about autumn but I think the biggest thing is God’s handiwork! He is such an artist and he knows how to put some of the most beautiful things together! He is AWESOME!

  191. Fall leaves and trees are what I enjoy most about fall. Driving to work becomes a joy watching the trees turn their reddish, orange glory–seeing leaves blow against my windshield. Raking all the types of colorful fall leaves, hearing the sounds as I rake and walk through the leaves and the spicy smell of leaves being bagged. And nothing is more fun then the laughter of little ones throwing all the colored leaves up, up to blue sky.

  192. I love the fruit and veggies of fall. The tomatoes and squash etc are just great when fall hits along with apples. Not that I don’t enjoy the colors, but it is great time for food and soups and such.

  193. I love all the beautiful colors on the trees, and then when the sun sets and shines on them. Just the best. Of course time to spend time in side and the sewing machine and making quilts, or sewing of any kind -looking out the window at the pretty colors. Of course the fall harvest and baking. Yum yum

  194. I love the cool nights and fall sunsets, they seem to have more red, gold and purple. I’m
    always drawn to the red, gold, orange, and dark greens that feel like fall.

  195. I love crisp autumn mornings and sunny afternoons. The smell of winter coming, and the rich bright colors in the sunshine. The changing scenery daily. I love the cool evenings and sewing with the afternoon sun shining in my sewing space. The fall apple harvest with the promise of wonderfully smelling deserts

  196. No more hot humid South Lousiana days!! The air eventually feels cool and crisp and the holidays are looming–what’s not to love? The change of seasons always inspires me to new projects too!

  197. I love the days with brilliant sunshine and a nip in the air. I also love seeing the autumn colors reflected in the cove near our home when the air is still and it looks like a mirror.

  198. Fall in Northern Maine is a wonderful time of year. The beautiful colors, the smells of fall, sounds of the geese going South. and the feel of fall in the air are among may favorite things. I pray that we all take a moment to thank God for all of His wonderful seasons

  200. While many would state they love the color of fall and look forward to cooler days, it’s not that I disagree, but living in the SFBay Area, we frequently have our best weather in the fall. In addition, my Granny Smith apple tree provides me with fruit that ripens and I make pies for everyone. It’s also the best of the baseball season and we cheer on our World Championship team.

  201. I live in Michigan, and the wonderful fall colors show in the changing of the leaves of all the trees and bushes. It is breath taking. Reds, browns, yellows oranges and greens make fall beautiful. And I’m sure your fabrics match the beauty of the season.

  202. I love the changes that Fall represents – the weather grows cooler, the leaves turn such gorgeous colors, days grow shorter. It is the most beautiful season!

  203. The cooler weather. I live in the desert — we get to 115 degrees plus. Fall is welcome. Plus, our “winter visitor” friends start returning to the desert!!

  204. I love the colors of fall and the crispness to the air, the wheat fields swaying in the breeze the combines & other heavy equipment roaring as it brings in the harvests. I know it sounds silly but thats what I love.

  205. I love the beautiful Colorado when the trees leaves change. They are so bright and pretty. My Mom and i would drive in the country and look at the trees. That was also her favorite time of year. I would love to make a guilt out of the besutiful Colors you offer for my granddaughter in her memory.

  206. Autumn-where to start. The hint of crisp in the air; the golden tone of the light. the last burst of flowers and vegetables in the garden. Its all good.

  207. Fall is the most wonderful time of year for me, because it brings exciting smells, such as fireplaces, bonfires, mulled cider and the scent of cold air.

  208. Foremost, fall is beautiful colours….then there is the smell of burning leaves, the crispness of the air, Thanksgiving (in Canada), and pulling out the quilts to cozy up in front of the first fire!

  209. I would love to make the Farmer’s Market Tote. I am always forgetting my thin bags I bought at the market and then I could show off my handiwork when I go to the market.

  210. I absolutely love the changing colors and cooler weather; the smell of the fire in the outdoor fireplace, sitting on the swing, and looking at the stars.

  211. “I” love autumn cause my sis quits her bumming around and starts working on my ‘Santa List’; sewing quilts and misc items for all my family holidays. AND still does canning of most of her garden vegies and shares that, too! Unbelievable! We both love all the rustic colors; browns n oranges all tossed together, so warm n cozy! Our bestest season for selecting fabrics.

  212. I love walking in the woods in the fall. The crisp crunchy leaves under my feet and the many colors. At the end of the day, sitting by a campfire sipping hot chocolate is just so relaxing.

  213. I love the fall colors; the crunch of leaves under my feet and the cooler weather…..just love watching for the trees to start turning colors….such an array of pretty colors from green all the way to burnt orange and then many shades of brown against a blue sky.

  214. I love everything about it. The heat cools down, the warm anticipation of up-coming holiday dinners with family and friends, all sorts of treats freshly baked for everyone to enjoy, warm fires in the fireplace, the frantic hustle and bustle and excitement of the holidays and its expectations, and last but not least, snuggling and wrapping up in a beautiful quilt painstakingly created and sweated over by a loved one just for them in mind. I love everything about it.

  215. the mirrored reflection of red, yellow, orange and brown in the lake
    the sky born V of the geese migrating south
    the crunch when jumping into a pile of freshly raked leaves
    the flavor off fresh root vegetables from the garden
    the smell of the evening campfires to keep warm
    the chill that foretells of a change coming
    the anticipation of Halloween by the children

  216. My avorite thing about autumn is the fresh apples, I love to go apple picking and at the same time view the georgious fall colours, in the country side.

The air smells so fresh and earthy and I know that harvest is upon us and the pumpkins will soon be ready to carve for Hallowe’en.

  220. I love autumn because the usually green landscape of trees magically becomes a beautiful painting of vibrant colors for us to enjoy and be blessed by, before the snow starts to fall.

  221. When autumn is here, it is time to make applesauce! My sister has a Granny Smith apple tree in her yard which produces an abundance of wonderful apples that she shares with me. In the dead of winter, it’s nice to thaw out a carton of cinnamon applesauce and remember the fall day when it was made. Thanks!

  222. Autumn is good for me, I can set on my porch have coffee, watch the birds and wild life cross my yard, and the colors, most every color from white, light blues to black .I an talking about white clouds, blue skies the black between the trees and all the reds, greens, yellows, gold so on and so on. The cool air.

  233. There are sooo many cool things about fall. It’s really my favorite time of the year, whether it’s the crispness in the air, the homey scent of smoke curling from chimney’s, or the blowing of the gorgeous leaves. And you know, there’s always the marvelous scents of the home baking that starts around that time of year. Seems like you can just walk outside and inhale a bit of fall. It’s my favorite time to go camping, too!

  234. Autumn is my favorite time of year. Here in the Pacific Northwest we have all 4 seasons and the air is different as autumn approaches. It also means going back to school which I have done, in one guise or another, for 50 years.

  235. I miss the autumn smells of piles of leaves burning and the crisp feel in the air that lets you know that the season is changing. I’m retired to Mexico and we don’t really have an autumn here.

  236. I love EVERYTHING about autumn (except going to work). I love the smells, the gorgeous fall fabrics in the quilt shops, the way I can hear sounds from far away that are muffled when the trees have all their leaves, the sounds of cheering from a nearby football game…I could go on and on. Autumn is my favorite time of the year.

  237. Autumn for me here in Western Australia is about a reprieve from our long hot summers, being able to venture outdoors and feel that even nature has breathed a sigh of relief.

  238. Hello
    Autumn is my favorite time of year. I love the beautiful colors of the trees and the crisp air is invigorating and I just love sweatshirt weather. Love your show, magazines and blog.

  239. Autumn brings so many wonderful surprises but for me the best part is taking walks at dusk and dawn. The rich smell of the fall reminds me of being a kid raking up leaves. My parents would have one last outdoor family gathering in Autumn with a huge brush burning from the years clean up of the property. It was good times, roasting hot dogs and making s’mores while listening to the adults tell stories from their past and the occasional ghost story.

  240. I love the transition of the fall season. The countrysides explode into vibrant colors painting the landscape in celebration of the transformation of the seasons before a long winters rest. The temperatures start to cool and a sense of serenity falls over you as you curl up under a quilt enjoying the rich hues of nature that warm and envelope your soul.

  241. Love the warm oranges, Yellows, Reds and Browns of the season.. but the best part of Fall is Halloween! Can decorate to my heart’s content and combine the oranges, blacks, and purples to make awesome quilts.

  242. My favorite things about fall are the changing of the hot summer to to cool of winter. The fall has as many colors and burst of changes as the spring . From the burnt greens, reds and yellows to the deep starry nights, to the incoming of the hints of snow to the muddy slushy colors. Quilts can combine all those and the burst and spirit of Halloween,Thanksgiving , Christmas to the New Year!

  243. There are soooo many great things about fall that I love!!! My birthday is in the fall, I love all the beautiful colors of fall. Halloween, Thanksgiving are just around the corner:) I love sewing with the “colors of fall”. Such beautiful things can be made:)

  244. I love autumn for the cooler weather, raking of leaves (though we don’t have any trees in our yard LOL), the colors, and the fact that we still have more time before winter!

  245. Favorite part of Autumn….ooooh the changin’ leaves, & startin to use the Woodstove, makin’ Applesauce, bakin’ Bread, Soups in Crockpot……cool crisp air….looooove Fall!!! Plus our Anniversary is in October!! 🙂

  246. My favorite thing of autumn is the change of colors, the change in the air, and the change of smells. It always stirs an emotion of excitement that even though it seems that the bright summer was fading–new things were happening; school, new clothes, new friends, etc. I miss that change from summer to autumn.

  247. I love seeing the beautiful leaves as they fall from the trees. It seems almost magical and brings back a childhood memory. My parents told me on my October birthday that it is good luck for a person to catch a falling leaf on their birthday. Assuming that was a universal good luck sign, I chased leaves for what seemed like a long time, without catching any! Turns out Mom and Dad were ready for me to play outside for awhile!

  248. I would have to say that the thing I like most about the fall is that the cooler air motivates me to head back to my sewing machine. The autumn colors, the fresh smell in the air, the visits to the apple and pumpkin farms, and Halloween and Thanksgiving all inspire me to get stitching! I would love to have these fat quarters when fall arrives. Thanks for the chance to win them!

  249. I love the beautiful palette of hues along the highways and mountaintops when the leaves begin to change colors. The reddish-browns, the rusts, the mustard-yellows, they are all so spectacular to view. I also love the cool nights, shorter days and the sound of a crowd cheering for the home team at the local high school football game. Welcome Autumn, welcome!

  250. Since moving to Southern Nevada I don’t get to see the change of colors which I loved, but we are leaving the extreme heat behind and the days are becoming cooler and more beautiful. With the cooler weather it is also more fun to do the bigger quilts.

  251. The thing I love about autumn is that I live in New England, and I can just look out my window at all the fantastic colors, or go outside and enjoy the fall air and the contrast between the reds, golds, and yellows against the crystal blue sky. The sky is a different color in the fall, I swear!

  252. Autumn/Fall is my favorite time of year: lower heat & humidity, cool, crisp nights, changing colors in the trees, upcoming holidays that bring friends & family closer.

  253. I think “Alignment” would be a great pattern to highlight some of the larger scale print fabrics I have in my stash. Always looking for a way to feature those.

  254. The colors of autumn are the most beautiful. On our farm this is when the geese fly over, the deer gather in our yard where they know they are safe and we harvest the garden and the crop.

  255. My favorite thing about Fall is the smells of the season. Pumpkin pies, Home made applesauce made from the local orchards harvest , soups and the general way in which I begin to nest in my house making it more comfortable for the upcoming chilly months.

  256. My favorite thing about fall is the beautiful rich colors the trees become. It was also the time when my family and I used to spend time at the carnivals and pumpkin patches around town. Not only that, but I love the weather fall brings and the delicious pumpkin pie!

  257. Well living in the desert fall mean’s cooler weather, some rain and the wonderful smell that comes with the rain, it’s also a great time to spend sandwiching and quilting quilts getting them ready to bind in the winter months to keep warm.

  258. Fall is a quieter time. The rush of summer is over, but there is still lots to do. The weather is mellower and things are cozy. Great time for a quilt!
