Fall into Fall Quilter's Blog Giveaway

Kudos to Debi over at http://debiquilts.blogspot.com/ for coming up with this great idea. There are 40 quilters involved in a huge fall giveaway. We've each come up with something quilted/quilt related/crafted to give away as a prize.

I decided on Sunday that I wanted to be involved in this and stayed up until after midnight last night creating this.


I'm quite proud of my efforts and to be honest it's going to be hard to give this away! lol

There's a little pocket inside.

And a nice vintage button taken from Grandma's button collection.



To sweeten the deal I made a couple of these as well. (Table runner not included)


They're made to hang on the oven door. Perfect for fall decorating!


The winner gets their choice of one towel and then I'll have a second draw to give the other away as the 2nd place prize.


Sooo, in order to be entered in this fantastic draw you need to leave a comment on this post telling me what your favorite SMELL of fall is. Anyone can leave a comment but if you don't have a blog be sure to leave your e-mail address in your comment so I can contact you if you win! The draw will be done on Oct 15th to find out who the lucky winners are. :o)


Don't forget to check out all the other blogs for more great draws. Just click on the scarecrow at the right of my blog for a list of all the other blogs with draws you can enter. Good luck everyone!

burning leaves and the bbq smells of tailgating blowing in the wind- you know that smell sure brings people together :)

StitchinByTheLake said...

My favorite smell? It could be pumpkin pies baking, or cinnamon spice candles burning, or the fall leaves as you rake them. But probably it's the sweaty little bodies of children as they run up to my door on Halloween night in their cute little costumes and with their sweet smiles. blessings, marlene

Quilt Pixie said...

my favorite smell of fall is simply being able to smell! All summer I suffer awful hayfever and can't smell a thing... then the fall comes and I relish the smells of outdoors, the ripe basil in the garden, the garlic hanging to dry, the soil being turned over in the garden....

Ginny said...

Kathy said...

Thanks so much for playing and coming up with such a great giveaway. I love the small of a bag full of fresh picked apples and the smell of woodstove smoke. Of course, if you live in a nice warm area, you wouldn't know that smell.

Butterfly said...

what a wonderful bag and I can see why you don't want to give it away.

As I live in CA we don't have rain for 5-6 months and usually have rain in Oct and I love the smell of the first rain. It smells so fresh and clean.

della said...

One of the best smells is my own apple pie baking in the oven; it's one of the few things I can really do well - always a lot of cinnamon and nutmeg.
Thanks,
Della

Beautiful bag, Corinna. And you did a great job on the tutorial. Hummm, think I'm going to have to make me some. My favorite smell is kind of strange - fall rain has a scent all its own. I miss it because fall lasts 5 minutes here in So. CA.

Pattie said...

Hi Corinna -

My favorite autumn smell has to be apple crisp baking in the oven. The smell of cinnamon and apples and brown sugar... what's not to love? :-)

We have been chowing down on honey crisp, they are so good. Love your bag. One of the last quilts my aunt did have acorns and leaves all over it. Really love the look. Thank you for doing this.
