A Treat...

Hope everyone is not worn out from the Fall Into Fall Giveaway and Fall-O-Ween Blog Hop and all the other fun things going on in blogland this month. Not to mention the upcoming Bloggers Quilt Festival. If you have just a little more energy to leave more comments...

....you can help me celebrate my upcoming b-day!

I'm having a giveaway (with a vaguely fall theme).  There are 10 Moda fat quarters of autumnal colors (mostly Kansas Troubles), Pat Sloan's Crooked Cabins book,  a Little Quilts booklet called My House, Quick Flannel Quilts book, and an assortment of patterns including little bags, charm-square table runner, pillow, scrappy lap quilts, and a jelly roll quilt (and maybe more stuff if I can fit it all into a flat-rate package).

10 fat quarters, 3 books, and bunches o' patterns...no tricks :)
I'll make it super simple to enter, just leave a comment on this post. 
Comments will close on Saturday, October 23 at high noon EST and winner will be chosen by random number generator.
Please make sure I can reach you through your post (if your blog post says "no-reply" I won't be able to reach you!)
Open to quilters from near and far.
 Thanks for helping me celebrate!.

Happy Birthday to you!! I think we need to treat you though!! I chuckled about are we tired of all the giveaways.....there has indeed been an abundance of them hasn't there?!

I love your giveaway offering...fingers crossed here in my hollow.

Yes indeed, a very happy birthday to you! Hope you have a special day. That bundle of goodies is too good to be true!
I checked out every blog from the fall into fall giveaway, but decided I'm not doing the other...it's just too time consuming and I'm missing my favorite season!

Happy Birthday! My granddaughter also has an October birthday. Do you claim the whole month as yours as she does? She starts getting gifts on the 1st and has a little b-day celebration on her birth date(5th). Then on the 31st she has a huge birthday bash.

Gmama said...

GMama Jane from Grandmamas Stories (www.grandmamasstories.blogspot.com) sends a Big Ole Happy Birthday to you from North Alabama. We're in the same general vicinity and can appreciate cooler weather after the brutal summer we just went thru. Can you agree??? Love your quilts and your sewing group!! I can't find a group that "fits" me...they're either MUCH older, too persnickety, or not very friendly to newcomers. I so wish I could find a group like yours. Hope I can find a group of quilty friends to bond with! Glad I found your blog!!

Happy dappy b-day to you, Gretchen! What a lovely gift. I love to take walks or rides in the car this time of year to view the changing of the tree colors. Fall is surely a treat! Kathleen

Cindy said...

Happy Birthday to you...Happy Birthday to you! Thanks for the give away!

Carol said...

Happy Birthday!! Missed Thimbles this month-- Family reunion in MS

Dot said...

Wow...hope you're having a very generous birthday in return! I do think in this time when everyone seems so down about the economy that it's natural to be selfish and keep, keep, keep. How typical of quilters to do just the opposite and give, give, GIVE! I love it. Take that, politicians and pundits!

Happy Birthday to you :)
I'm so with you on watching Ghost Hunters. I love it when they start to scare themselves, but then I start to get the heebee geebees and scare myself. I'm such a baby :)I now just watch it during the day. I know I know...baby again! Is there a night light in your giveaway? Thank you for your generosity and hope you are enjoying the Fall weather!
