And just like that, it’s October already! Welcome to the final Best Quilts for Christmas 2011 fabric giveaway. We have not one, not two, but four different fabric bundles to give you this week, so let’s get started.

First, we have Snowman’s Land from Michael Miller Fabrics.

Snowmans Land for web 1024x774 Christmas fabric giveaway    4 final collections!

Quick and easy applique (truly!) and a candy cane inner border and binding that you cut on the bias — we show you how — are combined for a whimsical throw you can finish well before the holidays begin.

BQC Always Believe 1 287x300 Christmas fabric giveaway    4 final collections!

Always Believe from Red Rooster Fabrics

The second fabric bundle we’re giving away this week is Always Believe by Arlene Neely from Red Rooster Fabrics.

You have to see Cherrywood Fabrics in person to get the full effect of their suede-like, hand-dyed process.

We can easily see using Christmas Rose in Music of the Season, a 22″ x 94″ bed runner designed by Carol Streif that you’ll find on page 72 of BQC.

This 74″ x 90″ bed quilt gets its wintry sparkle through the careful placement of color values. Quick strip-piecing techniques make the two-block design a great pattern for confident beginners. You’ll find it on page 51 of BQC.

If you’d like a chance to win one of these four giveaways, leave a comment below before 11:59 p.m. Mountain Daylight Time on Sunday, October 9. You may tell us which bundle is your favorite, but we can’t guarantee that you’ll receive it if your name is drawn. We will pick four comments at random, and the winners will each receive a fabric bundle and a copy of Best Quilts for Christmas, still on sale at newsstands, book stores, quilts shops, craft stores and online. (At only $9.99 for 28 projects and patterns, it’s a fantastic value.) Come back and check this blog post on Monday to see if you’re a winner.

Comments left after 5:00 p.m. and over the weekend will be approved the next business day, so don’t worry if your comment doesn’t show up right away. This giveaway is open to people who haven’t already won something from Quilters Newsletter in the last 90 days.

Good luck! And remember, the best way to learn about giveaways and contests is to follow us on Facebook or Twitter.

UPDATE: We have winners — four of them, to be exact! The random number generator chose the following:
#115 — Diane Jasmin-Slattery, who will receive the Fairy Frosts
#238 — Chelsea Bailey, who will receive Always Believe
#302 — Sarah, who will receive Snowman’s Land
#106 — Jan Strickland, who will receive Christmas Rose

Thank you to all who entered this drawing! We wish we could play Santa to all of you, but please stay tuned. We’ll soon roll out brand new fabric giveaways in connection with our Best Fat Quarter Quilts special issue, which goes on sale on October 18. We hope you’ll come back to see what we’ve got!
