Simply Fat Quarters Showcase





Welcome to the Simply Fat Quarters Showcase! Kimberly of Fat Quarter Shop and the other It's Sew Emma Designers have created a wonderful Fat Quarters project book!




The designs are fun and modern, beautiful and traditional...you will love every pattern! Each quilt design is created using fat quarters, making the patterns perfect for sewing with your favorite collection or fabrics from your stash. Each quilt can be made in four different sizes--yardage and cutting instructions are given for each size.




I was able to make Carousel, the cover quilt, using the fabric line of my choice! Even though the original pattern is created with a traditional Fig Tree collection, Tapestry, I knew the pattern would be really cute in the bright Sew Cherry Christmas collection!




I really heart this quilt and pattern. And guess what? I get to pick four winners--three people will receive the Simply Fat Quarters book, and a fourth person will receive the book and a kit to make the complete quilt top! To enter leave a comment on this post--you can comment about anything "fallish"...or leave your ideas for storing fat quarters! The giveaway will remain open until midnight October 14th!

Thanks so much for stopping by, and have a great day!

I heart that quilt too! Fall = soup! We're trying lots of different soups at my house this fall. o:)

mama dub said...

Love this quilt! Looks like a great book. I love looking at the beautiful fall leaves. They are very colorful this year.

Glynette said...

Fall at our house means lots of high school football games!
Love your quilt!!!!!

Holli said...

I live (and sew) on a boat - my fat quarters are stored on built in shelves, stacked by color - until I take them out to audition and then they are just a total mess - hahaha. My favorite thing about fall - the air!

Loopylou said...

It's my favourite time of year, love walks in the woods, with the crisp leaves underfoot. We get lots of lovely colourful toadstools too

Jane said...

We try to do lots of hiking in the fall when things here in Tennessee are so beautiful. Also love fall quilting.

Crescent Moon Mama said...

When Fall comes, I really wish I had a nice warm fireplace to sew by!

Anne said...

I LOVE the fall. It is my favorite season. Crisp mornings, falling leaves, football, chili... oh, and my birthday. Your quilt is fab!

Pam said...

Fall means thanksgiving is almost here ! Yippee!

I store my fat quarters in baskets by color, unless I have several from a line. Then I store them together.

Lori Saillant said...

I do love that quilt--I live in the northern most part of LA County and we have a mild fall but I fondly remember growing up back east and having what seemed to be ginormous piles of leaves to get lost in...ah the simple life!

Kristan said...

Beautiful! Fall is Halloween, football, pumpkins, and cooler weather - perfect for quilts!

Maxine said...

I also heart that quilt..Fall is soup simmering on the stove, crisp air, home made bread (to go with the soup, the nice cool evenings..The book looks like it is going to be great....Love your blog...

Linda said...

I love fall weather, and can't wait to get to Michigan this Thursday, to see the colors for myself! Living in SW Texas, it has been a long time since I have seen any tree with color.

Elizabeth said...

I'd love to win a copy of this book. One thing I love about fall is being able to sew and quilt with the windows open, listening to the sound of the breeze in the trees.

Happy Cottage Quilter said...

Beautiful quilt! I love to decorate my home with fall colors. And quilts bring out the deep warm shades of Fall that we do not experience here in the deep south. Thanks for the giveaway!

Strlady said...

This one is definitely a favorite. They chose the right quilt to make you want to open the book and peruse. I was telling my sister this morning how much I love the smell of the heater kicking up for the first time in the season. It makes the house smell like fall. I know. I'm weird.

Lizziebeth said...

Looks like some really great quilts! The one you made would look great in fall colors also.

Barbara McD said...

I live on the Alabama Gulf Coast and fall cannot come soon enough for me! We basically have summer 5-6 months out of the year and I am ready for some cooler weather!!

Thanks for the awesome giveaway!!

beth said...

Just finished the fall St. George marathon. My first one! Now I have time to get back to quilting

Tracey Holzer said...

One day I will make a beautiful leaf quilt with fall colors...reds, oranges, golds and browns. I have that on my list of many quilts I want to make. Thanks, Sherri.

Anita said...

Whew hew, I like fall alot. Pumpkins, butternut squash soup, apple cider, and wearing sweaters all favorites.

Tina said...

It's my mom's birthday in the fall. And she would love a new quilt from me ;).

Melia Mae Quilting said...

Fall is my absolute favorite season enjoying pumpkin pie and hot apple cider along with the changing leaves. Your quilt is just gorgeous!

Ms De said...

Love this quilt in this fabric! I love using fat quarters in quilting! Thank you for the chance to win!! The leaves are turning and it's getting cooler, so this is the quilt I would love to make!!

Caren D said...

I really like your choice of fabric.... The contrast with the white really makes it pop. Ideas re storing fat quarters: I store my quilt supplies in a walk- in closet. A portion of the closet has shoe cubbies built in. I store my fat quarters in the cubbies. They fit perfectly.

What a great giveaway. This book looks wonderful. I store my fat quarters in a gun cabinet that my father built. It's beautiful, reminds me of him and I don't need it for guns!

Jenniffier Kramer said...

How fun. I store mine in those plastic drawers that you can get at target.

Sharon P said...

I am looking foprward to making chili and stew this fall! All the quilts in this book are great - thanks for the great giveaway!

Staci said...

Your quilt is lovely! Very inspiring!
The best thing about fall is that the heat of summer passes! And, of course, I love the autumn foods: brussels sprouts, parsnips, squash, pomegranates, citrus-- just all of it!

peg said...

I love white based quilts they're so fresh and clean. I like to decorate with my fat quarters since I have run out of storage space. My latest find was a gigantic glass cookie jar with a metal cap. I have about 25 fats in there waiting to be cut up

Very beautiful quilt. Love it!

Clara {Clover and Violet} said...

That looks like a great book! Love all the qults!!

Unknown said...

I love fall because that means cooler weather. I also love all the colorful leaves.

Gill Watson said...

I love this quilt!
The best thing about Autumn is cold, bright days - here (UK) today it's wet and foggy!!

Julia P said...

Fall...blown away once again by the beauty of our Maker's creation.

Do you think he used a design board?

Julie

free indeed said...

We are headed out for a hay ride with the youth group this afternoon...not perfect weather, but the colors are still pretty...the fire will keep us warm roasting hot dogs and smores!

Reb Thack said...

What an amazing quilt! Now I want to make a similar one :-)

Fall: in the San Francisco area it means crazy temps. This time last week it was 102, today 70. It makes me miss the New England falls of my younger days! I'm just looking forward to putting a fire in the fireplace.

marcella said...

Fall is soup weather around here. Last night it was homemade tomatoe and grilled cheese sandwiches with pesto. Yum!

Mom2RyandSis said...

Love the quilt! Enjoying the cooler weather fall brings! Thanks for the chance to win!

pkrueger said...

I love that quilt too! I love the changing colors in the fall!

HouseManagerLady said...

Fall around here means birthday season for us, 4 in October and 4 in November!

kelly said...

i love that carousel quilt! let's see, fall... i turned the heater on for the first time this morning! and i'm contemplating chili for dinner!

Unknown said...

I love the quilt! I roll my fat quarters and store them in a cabinet I bought in the bathroom section of a home store. It has lots of shelves behind a glass panel, they are sorted by color so I can grab what I need. If I have packs of a special line I keep those together in another place.

Bailey said...

Right now, here on the east coast, it is getting quite brisk, but we are planning in taking a little hike after the kids nap today. Do you think we can make more than a mile without one of the kids saying they are tired or their legs hurt?

Vee said...

Red, orange, gold and brown..I love those colours !!
Cold enough outside that you want to come into the house and have some soup !

Laura said...

I just made fall pillowcases with orange, brown and green colors for my favorite college students.

LGambler said...

It's finally feeling like fall here! Love seeing all the leaves changing and baking apple and pumpkin recipes!

Heather said...

I love fall. This year it has inspired me to finally make something specifically for the season so I'm making a table runner. Can't wait to finish it up.

jlgwyn said...

Wonderful job on the cover quilt! I love it when the authors include all the different sizes and easy measurement changes. Fall weather hopefully means less mosquitos here in Houston. More walks outside with the family and maybe even some good chili soon!

Sue at The Boar's Breath Ranch said...

these look like great books. I love fall colors, the rusts, dark reds, even brown to hook and sew with.

craftytammie said...

lovely quilt! i store my fat quarters on shelving that originally held cds. they fit perfectly, and i use each cubby for a different color.

Kathryn said...

I'm a FQ fan, so this is a great book for my collection. My FQ are stored in the hanging sweater containers in my closet. Here's fall, and lots of apples and cider.

anne Le Floch-Joubert said...

Gorgeous quilt. I use vaccuum seal bags to store fabric (the same bags and machine you can use to store food!). A little bit of lavender, seal and it's dustfree and fresh when you need it, takes very little space too. It's cheap too! :) Should they fall off a shelf, no big mess! (that was my joke about adding something about 'fall'). anne

Linda said...

HI! BEAUTIFUL QUILT!
WE LIVE IN THE BEAUTIFUL ROCKY MTS. AND OUR COLORS ARE YELLOW ASPENS AGAINST THE FIRS+PINES>SO BEAUTIFUL!IT'S SO GREAT TO WALK AMONG THEM!

Heather said...

Living in the south these days, I miss the wonderful trips to the cider mill for some cider and those wonderful cinnamon sugar coated donuts in Michigan. Yum!!

Jaci said...

I love everything about fall! Especially getting to cozy up with the quilts I have made during the summer months.
I store my fat quarters by color in old shoe boxes, not pretty, but the containers are cheap.

Jean Burke said...

The book looks terrific! I love using fat quarters. I like walking though the leaves. Quilting also seems to be more fun because I'm not sweating!! Thanks for the chance to win.

Carrie P. said...

Love that quilt. Thanks for the giveaway.
I love fall especially the cooler weather. As far as storing my fat quarters I put them together by fabric color in a cabinet I have.

Jennie said...

Fall is my very most favorite season. Apple cider, Halloween, Thanksgiving, pumpkins, leaves, soup, rolls, apple crisp, warm quilts, the Anne of Green Gables series (I read it every fall!), and now I have four birthdays to celebrate in the fall, starting with my baby girl's first this Saturday.

Love your quilt. Very pretty, and I'd love to make one just like it!

freakadoodles said...

I love fall, especially pumpkins - pumpkin treats, pumpkin decorations, roasted pumpkin seeds... And I love your quilt!

Terrie said...

Loving that book and your quilt....both versions. Loving also that the weather is turning cooler and quilts become sooooo comforting !!!

Lis said...

We just moved into a new "Old" house and I am in the process of trying to figure out how to arrange all my fabric in my new "SEWING ROOM"... So exciting.
lisamcgriff@hotmail.com

Melinda said...

I store my FQs in a little wheeled cart with pull out drawers. I can easily see all of them, but also easily tuck them away. The only problem is I'm running out of room!

Joan and Kevin said...

I love the quilt!
Thanks for the giveaway!

Suzan said...

I store my fat quarters in clear plastic shoe boxes (without the lids). I have them on shelves in my studio sorted by color so it is easy to grab a box and find whatever I need.
Fall is my very favorite season. I love dragging out the stock pot and making soup...lots of soup. I cram everyone's freezer with my soup!

Bev Arason-Gaudet said...

I love your fabric choices for your quilt; beautiful! I love the changing colors of Fall and the brisk air, the crunch of leaves underfoot. Happy Thanksgiving to everyone in Canada!

Sue Bone said...

The weather here is more wintry that fall. We have had torrential rain. Perfect for our workshops with a visiting tutor, apart from when you need to get to and from your car.

Janine Allen said...

I'm loving the cooler weather. I store my fat quarters in a cabinet used to store fancy papers that I recycled from a store going out of business.

TheaM said...

I love making chili as soon as the weather cools... the smell fills the house... and while it simmers on the stove - I have time to quilt!

charlotte said...

Wonderful Quilt. Yesterday was the first day it felt like fall here in NC...cold, rainy and a fire in the fireplace.

Gertie Pye said...

This book looks so fabulous! I have always dutifully put my borders on but recently when I have been measuring up how big I would like a quilt to be, I have discovered that borders are not mandatory.

Re Fall - the smell of the first bonfire is the best smell of the year :)

Lynn said...

I look forward to pumpkins, fall spices and smells, pumpkin rolls, leaves changing colors, and more time indoors- perfect for crafting! And with three ids 4 and under I need a sewing project at all times to have some ME time!

LindseyAnne said...

Fall here in Hampshire (UK) is actually autumn. I hoping it will be bright and chilly soon so that we can kick our way through the fallen leaves on the way to the park.

Lisa Marie said...

I've been sewing fall table runners lately. Love the rich, warm colors!

pianomama said...

I'm so happy it's finally fall....I am OVER 100 degree days. I'd rather snuggle under a quilt:-)

Karen M said...

I am so excited about this book. I have sworn off buying more books and magazines because I already have more projects on my wish list than I could complete in three lifetimes. You are a temptress. I think I need this book. Thanks for the chance to win it.

Sfredette said...

Fall means we can turn on the oven...so last night we had meatloaf for dinner. This coming weekend - Roast Chicken. Hurray!!!

{ HeatherK @ AReformedHeath'n } said...

I just love the excuse to stay inside and work on indoor projects as the weather cools and becomes rainy here. I keep all my precuts separate from my other scraps, but I love to display the bundles before they're cut-into. Gives me a small sense of order amid the chaos of my sewing corner.

stitching under oaks said...

I'm loving fall....it's finally quilt weather! I made a fall table runner over the weekend!

Smeek said...

I have been working on Halloween quilts to decorate with. Not far off. This book looks wonderful and I am a fat quarter hoarder.
Thanks for the giveaway!

Johanna said...

I love the fall, there is nothing like the sound of leaves raining through the trees. Love the quilt in Cherry Christmas!

Mary said...

What an honor to be the cover quilt! Congratulations!!!

Making quilts is 'fallish' to me because that's when my sewing room is comfortable. It's really hot in the summer and there's no heat in the room so winters are cold. Fall and spring are perfect sewing seasons!

SewLindaAnn said...

I was shocked last night to have the temp drop enough to put long pajamas on and sleep under a real cover. I store my fat qtrs. in small piles next to the larger fabrics so they are easy to grab and work with.

Joan said...

Lovely quilt! I love the beautiful colours in the fall and the cooler temperatures. Thank you for the generous giveaway.

Mindelicious said...

Cute Quilt! I love the fabric you picked, too. Fall is bittersweet. The change of leaves are so beautiful, and the weather is such a relief after hot summer. But, it means winter is on the way and and I am not a fan of winter. Also, the days are so short! I need my sunlight!

Becky S. said...

I love your Carousel quilt Sherrie! I can't wait to see more projects from the book.
Fall is my favorite season. Unfortunately, it never seems to last long enough around here. We had snow last week-yuck!
Thanks to you and the FQS for the great giveaway.

Darlene D said...

Thanksgiving day here for me in Canada! I love the fall, the crisp air, the beautiful foliage. And my busy life style slows down just a bit which makes more time for sewing! Happy Fall!

Fran said...

Love the quilt! Looks like a great book.

Susan said...

I love that quilt and would so love to make it!
Fall means family fun to me---bonfires, roasting marshmallows (we did this last night at my 3yo's request!) hay rides, crisp cool weather, apples, pumpkins, hot chocolate, beautiful leaves--raking and jumping in big piles, and snuggling under warm quilts!!

Shar said...

I love this quilt! I store my fat quarters in a CD rack by color! I love the cool air of fall!

Nancy said...

I really love the quilt and the fabric you chose. Fall is my favorite season with all the bright colors, football games, and comfort foods of soup and chili.

MugglePuggle said...

This looks like such a great book! I love fall because of the cooler weather and changing colors of the leaves.

sandy said...

Love the quilt, so fresh looking. I love walking through the crunchy fall leaves. Thanks for the giveaway.

Laurel said...

For this first time this Fall I am sewing with Halloween fabrics. I made myself a wall hanging from fat quarters and my daughter a banner from the leftovers.

Love your quilt! The book looks amazing.

Donna in NW FL said...

Waiting for the cooler weather to hit Florida and then a big pot of chili sounds good!
Love the quilt! The book looks great!

Michele said...

I so want a copy of that book. If I'm not lucky enough to win one, I'm going to ask Santa for it. I was just thinking yesterday that I need to make a batch of Pumpkin Spice cupcakes with cream cheese frosting. So perfect for this time of year.

Sew Simple Life said...

Oh my gosh... I don't have any tips for storing fat quarters, Not really. I store mine in these plastic bins I bought at Wal-Mart, nothing fancy.


Thanks for the chance to win!

B Greene said...

What a great pettern and I love it in Christmas fabric. They almost look like snowflakes to me!! I love the cooler fall waether and just wish that I had a quilt ready for binding so I could snuggle under it and "work". Thanks for the wonderful giveaway!!

MimiQuilts said...

Love the fall...your quilt would look great in a fall palette as well!

davislm2000 said...

I just finished making an apple spice cake from a recipe I found on another blog. It smells very fallish in my kitchen.

grammyx4 said...

I love fall! the colors, the smells and the coziness... love your quilt!

Sugar and Fun said...

My favorite thing about fall is getting to rake up the the leaves and jump in them with the kids.

Deb said...

Love the book, would really like to have a copy - would make the quilt you made too! Fall is my favorite time of the year with nice days and cooler nights, wonderful!

Kwiltsfl said...

Love the quilt and I bet the entire book is great! I love making soup and watching football in the fall! ~ Karen H

Wendy said...

I love Fall. The colours are so brilliant on a sunny day and they brighten up a dull rainy one. I love the change of meals...getting out my casserolle recipes and the slow cooker. p.s. I love the book you are posting about and I love the quilt you made! Hope I win!

gccmom said...

fall signals the Smocking Arts Guild of America Convention....I am going this year with my best friend, then spending a few days with her in Tennessee. Other than that, fall signals that winter will soon be here and I really don't like cold weather! Haven't figured out yet how to store fat quarters.

Margo Brown said...

Living in Alberta so close to the mountains gives us a beautful view with all the Fall colours and the backdrop of the mountains. Makes me want to cozy up under a great quilt and dream of the new quilts I'm going to work on during those chilly days!

Margaret said...

I love patterns that lend themselves to using lots of different types of fabrics - the kind of pattern that looks great w/ autumn fabrics, Christmas fabrics, or even scrap pieces. It's so much fun to see how each of the quilts looks, then.
I think the best thing about Autumn is the color that Nature splashes about and is she ever generous this year! The colors in mid-Michigan are stunning!

Sharon@Sharon at Home said...

Beautiful. It is definitely Fall in Canada .. today is Thanksgiving!!

Michelle said...

If it's fall then I'm baking! Lots and lots of fresh, homemade bread. Yum!

Shirley said...

Fall is my favorite season. No heat and still beautiful days to be outside. Thanks for all the chances at an awesome giveaway!!

Julia said...

Fall is so refreshing after the "dog days" of summer! I love the Carousel quilt! Thank you for sharing!

Jane Eilderts said...

What a great quilt and book!! I love fall - really gets me in the mood for lots of fun quilting!!!

Sally said...

I have a light table on top of a set of drawers--all my fats are folded and stored in the drawers sorted by color (well, batiks, 30s and 1800s are actually also seperate!)

Annabanana said...

Ahhh...yet another book to put on my wishlist ! Fall decorating at our house is now done(um...unless I make some cute fabric pumpkins I've been seeing on the internet!)and my favorite part is the fall scented candles...warm and sweet! Thanks for the giveaway :)

Jennie P. said...

This book looks lovely. I'd truly love to win a copy. I don't have any ideas for storing fat quarters. I just have several big plastic zip bags that i keep my fabrics in to keep them from getting dusty or damaged in any way. Wish I had better organization.

Harrysmum said...

Ack, fall is a verb! Autumn means Bonfire night with Parkin, Treacle Toffee and sparkelers!!
Great giveaway, thanks for the chance to win!

amys said...

The best part about fall...cool, crisp air and a quilt to snuggle under :)

Catherine said...

I love how different that quilt looks with simply a different fabric line! Fall = my birthday, so I always love it when the leaves start changing and the weather turns cooler! :)

teachpany said...

That quilt looks fun! I love the crisp air and colors of the leaves, plus I just went to Airing of the Quilts in Tunkhannock, PA, so I'm filled with inspiration and desire to make new quilts and finish some tops!

Sharon Dawn said...

Love the "Cheery" Cherry Christmas line. I have been watching it and wondering which pattern I would like best out of it! Your quilt looks wonderful, and it looks like a great book!
Icy puddles to crunch in warm rubber boots are still my favorite fall fun!

supermomnocape said...

What a beautiful quilt! It took me a while to really believe that summer was over but I am enjoying the cooler temperatures that are perfect for going for walks.
Thanks for the giveaway and the chance to win.

JCnNC said...

Really love the colors of that quilt and would certainly appreciate the book. I store my fat quarters in wooden sock organizer trays that I purchased. Fall means decorating with my quilts and getting ready for coolish nights along with college football. Judy C in NC

flop said...

I love the fall colors in patchwork !! And I can really imagine this beautiful quilt in brown and rust colors !
This book seems really interesting , I like very much working with fat quarters and all precuts
Thanks for sharing !

barbara woods said...

i love that quilt. i made soup yesterday because it got cold. thanks for the giveaway

•stephanie• said...

fall in arizona is opposite from just about everywhere else. fall is when we put in our beautiful winter lawns. fall is when i plant about a hundred geraniums and just as many alyssum plants. fall is when we start to want to go outside after our blistering summers. fall is when we can think about grilling again. fall is always welcome here. what a relief!!

p.s. your sample quilt for the book is amazing - as always!!

rebecca said...

i love the carousel quilt and the colors are beautiful. well done!

Kay said...

We took 4 of our grandkids to a pumpkin farm this weekend & that really made it feel like fall. After such a hot summer I said I wouldn't complain about the cold, but it has gotten a little to chilly for my tastes. Can't wait to get my own copy of this book. Love the carousel quilt.

Sandy D said...

I love the Carousel quilt.This time of the year is just gorgeous.The colors are beautiful.After such a brutally hot summer the fall temps are great,

Teresa Silva said...

I love this quilt. I love all the beautiful colors of fall. Thanks for the opportunity to win the book.

Carol said...

Sherri your quilt is fantastic! Love your fabric choice! It is sooooooo FUN!

Laura said...

Your quilt is beautiful!! My favorite thing about fall is making soups! Yum!! :)

Alexis said...

The quilt is lovely. I just started collecting fat quarters and can't wait to get baskets to store them in by color. My favorite thing about fall is the pumpkin flavored treats. thanks for the chance to win.

Nana-Bob said...

Well, I wish we had more of a season here (Florida) but my favorite thing this year will be taking my grandson to his first pumpkin patch! I can't wait to see the wonderment on his face.

LindaSonia said...

This looks like a great book - would love to win a copy!! Love Fall - especially love visiting the cider mills and having cider and hot donuts!! Yum!

Francis Paul said...

what a great book! I just bought an electric bike so I can ride again ( I have a form of rheumatoid arthritis)and I can't wait to ride in this fall: crispy cold in the morning when I ride to work and nice and warm in the afternoon when I go home:-)

mrsmcbee said...

I also love fall, I love to sew looking out my craft room window at all the activities of fall, goodness the squirels are so busy this year!!! Fall always brings to mind the first days of school for our two girls, it was sooooo fun when they put on their jumpers that we picked out the fabric together, and whipped up in the summer, so cute with their ponytails and new comfy sweaters, brings back sooo many warm memories!! My grandaughter said to me one day What is a jumper Grannie?? So funny when all she wears is colored skinny jeans these days!!!

Mary on Lake Pulaski said...

Took my granddaughter to the park today - lots of leaves down but some very pretty ones left. We walked through the leaves and listened to them crunch

Penny said...

Fall is my fav season even here in CA because we do have cooler nites & eventually the days become cooler. Fat Quarters are the best, especially coordinated bundles that I store on shelves or often in a project tub w/ other yardage that I think mite make a great quilt!

Taunja Kelvington said...

At our house, fall means lots of football and volleyball games,with mom sneaking to the sewing room when she gets a chance. Found some great baskets at Target that I think are intended to store CDs. However, they make beautiful fat quarter holders!! Happy Fall all!

CJ said...

Fall is my absolute favorite season! The days are cooler here, the leaves are changing color and the nights have been clear and cold. LOVE IT ALL!
Wow, Sherri - I LOVE the cover quilt in Tapestry but your version is SO CUTE! Different look altogether but so fresh and fun!

Litamora's Quilt & Design said...

This quilt is so gorgeous! Already on my to do list, and I've been waiting for this book to arrive! Love your fabric choice too!
Have a great new week :o)

bonapartelady said...

It's surely Fall in northern NY....the colors are beautiful! Now that I'm at my winter home in Florida though, it still seems like summer....hot and humid! LOL

Meredith said...

I am so glad it is finally feeling like fall in Texas. To celebrate I had to have a pumpkin spice latte from Starbucks!

Rachelle said...

I'm currently using square plastic containers to store my fat quarters and they're in a hutch dresser in the lounge so easily accessible.

sweetbaby said...

LOVE the quilt version you made!! Those are the colors that make me smile!! I love the changing leaves in the fall. Don't see that here in Florida, but I do love them!! Thanks for the giveaway!!

Julie Shoemaker said...

What a beautiful quilt. Fallish huh...I woke up to frost on the pumpkin this morning.

Carol said...

Fall means birthdays at our house (5 of them) and of course thanksgiving (today). The smells of turkey cooking and pumpkin cheesecake baking. Leaves changing colour and blue skies and apples for sale. It's definitely the best time of year.

Julie said...

Love fall :) I store my fat quarters in a shoe storage unit. It fits right on top of my shelving so I can see all my fat quarters along with my fabric. Thanks

Connie Rhea said...


fall color, scents, memories are good reason to quilt. Our 58th wdding anniversay is today so Fall is special in a very swwet way.

Lindsay said...

Fall is my favorite season - I love the colors, the smells, the crispness in the air - everything!

ritainalaska said...

love the fall colors! well, i love all colors ... my fq are stashed in open shelves folded and stacked so i can see the colors! they were color grouped, but that has passed and i prefer to see them mixed. thanx for the chance to win a copy!

Helen L said...

I love this quilt!!! It looks like flowers: what a fun one to sew!! I don't store my fat quarters seperate from my fabric unless I have them as bundles (which I have a hard time taking apart: they look so pretty together!!) I just keep them in with my fabric by color: that way I tend to use them more!! Thanks for the chance to win such a fun looking book. :-)

quilterseig said...

Love the quilt! You make such beautiful things! I need to find a better storage solution for FQs. Right now they are just squished in with my other fabric. Autumn is my favorite time of year. I love the crisp cool days, the return of football and the beauty all around! Would love to be entered in your giveaway!

Karla said...

Fall is the best!! Cool air, warm quilts and the best of all......I have energy again!! Yay!

Carolyn said...

Ahh, fall. It's my all time favorite season of the year. Unfortunately where I live in Texas, we don't get the beautiful trees changing colors. I do love the cooler temperatures and lower humidity, though. I seem to get more energy in the fall, too.

I have a ton of fat quarters. A.Ton. I store them by color (or in some cases by designer collection) and love to fondle them. A lot!

What a wonderful book, and the quilt you made is GAWWGEOUS!! Thank you for the chance at your most awesome giveaway!

Happy Fall!

The Woolen Cellar said...

Roast Beef, Carrots, Potatoes and
Cabbage all cooked together in one roaster is my favorite meal when the weather gets cool and the leaves turn color. Top it off with Apple Pie..doesn't get better than that! Also, love that quilt!

Susie Johnson said...

The leaves are turning colors early this year! We haven't turned on the heat yet, but a fire in the fireplace all day and night.

What a prize! My uni holidays are coming, which means I can do quilting!!! :-)

Erin said...

Just went for a walk in the woods with my dog. The leaves are beautiful.

I love fall weather - it's cooler, so I feel like quilting more!

Wow so much to say about fall. But I have to admit the best thing about fall for me and my husband is the start of the NBA basketball season. Thanks for the fun give away.

Lovely quilt! Am looking forward to seeing what else is in the book. I love the colours of Fall and most of all I love the fact that it is soup season in my house again.

Love the cooler weather and love your version of the quilt.

Apple cider. I don't think there's anything more perfectly fall!

Today it is really rather chilly in Atlanta. It feels like Fall. We have a huge pot of beef vegetable soup (my favorite) bubbling on the stove. I'm on the sofa wrapped in my Autumn Ridge quilt - just enjoying the change in temps. I love your choice of fabric for the cover quilt (I have a terrible memory with quilt names) Take care!

Sallie said...

I love the cooler weather, football and pumpkins that fall brings! Thanks for the great giveaway!

Tessa said...

I love your quilt top, I want to "copy" it!!!!!

Betty said...

Storing fat quarters could be a bit like fall! Like squirrels storing acorns and nuts for the winter, we quilters stash away our fabrics to use up on those cold wintry days that are just around the corner!

Sedjo said...

Such a lovely selection of fabric! You have such a great eye for color and design. Fall = cooler temperatures, snuggling under a handmade quilt,
gorgeous colors (bluer sky, gold and reds on the trees), crunching leaves, a pot of soup... it's my favorite season.

Joyce said...

I especially love fall colors, and your quilt is absolutely gorgeous!

Gale, Ky quilter said...

I love, love, love this book! And, fat quarters! I love the weather and the fall colors, watching football with my son and making chili and soups. Happy Fall! :)

I love it when it is freezing at night so I can use more than one quilt.

Christine M said...

I love the Carousel quilt. I just love the colours of Autumn (Fall). I love all the pumpkins that are used for decorations. We don't celebrate Halloween here in Australia so we don't have them. Thanks for the lovely giveaway.

My favorite thing about Fall is making homemade apple pies (they smell so good and taste so yummy!) Thanks for the sweet giveaway!

VickiT said...

I really love the quilt you chose to make from the cover. It's such a pretty one.

Fall to me has always meant baking time. And lucky you, I just ran across this recipe about 45 minutes ago so I'm going to share it with you. You can't get much more Fall-ish than Pumpkin right? These cookies look amazing. Who knew they now make Pumpkin Spice Hershey's Kisses? I sure didn't but I know I MUST find some soon and make these cookies.

Of course, Fall also means seeing all the adorable little children all excited to get candy in their adorable little costumes and smiling faces. I LOVE seeing them every year.

Linda said...

Fall is cooler weather and college football! I am so in love with this quilt!

Barb in Mi said...

This book looks really amazing - and what better time then fall to get back into sewing on dark & cold nights... Thanks for a chance - love your cover girl!

Karen said...

I love fall! My summers get crazy at work and fall is when I can breathe.

LisaW said...

Such a beautiful quilt - the colors you choose always inspire me!

The best thing about Fall is that's the time the Little Debbie Pumpkin Delights are available at the grocery store!!

Kim G said...

I love that quilt pattern also! Today was the perfect fall day in Illinois, cool temperatures, sun was shining, picked some pumpkins and did some fall cleaning in the house!

Blogger said...

Fall is my FAVORITE (!!) season...I love the cool crisp air & sunny days. I love the clothes you wear in fall. I love the fall holidays. I love the colors!!

I love the "turning of the leaves". Everyday I have been seeing beautiful golden colored leaves all around me with some reds thrown in. Fall is one of my favorite times of the year.

Sandi1100 said...

Your quilt is beautiful and I love your Christmas colors.

I love seeing the leaves change to nice vibrant colors!

Thanks for the chance to win

That quilt is just wonderful!!Autumn in our house (October) is the smell of grapes. I live near a winery and see the tractors from home full of grapes and also is my birthday,November.

I store my fat quarter in a drawer by color.

wendy said...

I store my fat quarters by colour in baskets. If I have a full fabric range they are on a shelf so that I can look at them all the time!

robinh said...

The book looks fun. I store my fat quarters by color on shelves.

jane said...

I store my fat quarters on a shelf made for CDs. Looks like a great book. Thanks for the chance to win.

Amanda said...

I heart this quilt too! I love fall, my favorite time of year. I love the colors, the smells, the chill in the air. I love it all!

giddy99 said...

I'm new to this, and kind of perplexed about storing my fabrics in general. They're in totes in color order, but I was reluctant to break up sets or lines, so those have a couple of tote drawers all on their own...

Deana, et al said...

My fat quarters are all ironed and folded in the same way, then I stack them by color on shelves in the sewing room closet. Looks beautiful, but can get very messy when working on a project!!

Being on the bottom of the world, it is spring not autumn here. I am envious of the amazing fall colors that the Northern hemisphere gets though. Nothing like ours.

Pat said...

I love the fall season - quilts to snuggle under, baking bread, being with family...

carol said...

The book looks great. Your quilt is beautiful. I love the scents of fall.
