Good day ladies and gents.  The Fall into Fall Quilters Blog Giveway is finally here! 
For my giveaway I'm offering Strip-Favorites by Suzanne McNeill, 8 Fall fat quarters, and an assortment of 10 Fall pictures squares cut from a panel.


Everyone is eligible to win. There are two ways to get a chance...
  1. Leave me a comment telling me what your favorite favorite thing about reading blogs is. 
  2. Become a follower and leave a second comment telling me you've done so.  If you are already a follower just leave me a second comment saying so.
Check back on October 15th when the winner will be chosen via random number generator. 

NOTE:  Please make sure that I have a way to contact you.  If your a "no reply" person and I cannot email you, I will have no choice but to select another winner...and I really don't want to have to do that.

Now I hope y'all are comfy and have some snacks and your favorite drink near you because there are 142 other bloggers and 8 quilt businesses lined up for this two weeks of giveaway mayhem!  To find them simply click on the scarecrow on my sidebar which will lead you to all the other blogs.

Good luck to y'all!  See you on the 15th...or sooner.

EDITED TO ADD:  I've decided to add to the giveaway by putting together another package of goodies for a second winner!  If I reach 300 comments, I'll add another giveaway prize and so on.

I love to read blogs, and probably spend too much time on it! I love to see the pretty things people make, and to see progress shots of their projects. I do enjoy learning little snippets about people and their lives, but really do not care for blogs that become "true confessions". For me, reading blogs is an escape hatch from the rigors of life, and I want to read things that are uplifting and happy. I know too well that life can be tough, so I enjoy an escape to happy blogland!
Thanks for offering such lovely prizes!
