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.








The soft pastels are a departure from typical Christmas colors, making it a lovely collection for year-round decorating or for baby’s first Christmas.

Always Believe would be a great collection to use for Star Garden, designed by Debbie Stojanik, on page 63 of BQC.

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.

Crystal from Best Quilts for Christmas

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!

    I love all of them. They will make a beautiful quilt.

  2. Carol says:

    Love the Fairy Frosts with that sheen and the quilt from them is wonderful!

  3. Susan Ericksen says:

    They’re all differently beautiful.

  4. I love the Fairy Frost Fabric-I have lots of cool ideas for this wonderful giveaway. I could even sew it on a cold Canadian winter day because it’s so lovely-it reminds me of a great day of skiing in the Rockies.

  5. Maggie says:

    I love the Christmas Rose and Fairy Frost fabrics. Pick me to win! Thanks.

  6. Barbara Roney says:

    To win any of the bundles would be a real bonus! Thanks.

  7. Sheila Taylor says:

    I like Always Believe & Snowman’s Land; but if I had to pick one, it would definately be Always Believe. When my children were little & getting to the age where they questioned whether or not there really was a Santa Claus, I told them that there was a Santa & if they Always Believe then they would have a good Christmas. Altho, I instilled in them that mommy paid for everything they received at Christmas, it was their belief in Christmas & happiness that made it a great Christmas. The way it worked was they made their listed & gave them to me the day I went to visit “Santa”. I gave him their lists & the money & it was up to him to bring them whatever was on the list that he had enough money for. Usually it was everything but to Always Believe & to this day, my grown Children still believe & I hear them telling my grandchildren the same thing I told them. Because during the Christmas season, anything is possible if you always believe!

  8. Sandy Bradley says:

    I love Fairy Frost I think it will go very well with Snowflake or Blue Willow which I have been searching for quite a few years. I just love the diffrent shadings.

  9. Pat Patrick says:

    I fell instantly in love with the frosts and the Crystal quilt! All the collections are very pretty. Thank you so much for the chance to win one!

  10. Joanie Thibodeau says:

    Pick me !!! Beautiful fabrics…. Always believe and fairy frost are my favorites.

  11. Susan Anderson says:

    I love the snow globe collection–I guess that I am just a kid at heart, and I have always loved snow globes, they are fun to watch!! Thanks Sue

  12. Joanne Hanson says:

    The quilts shown inspire me to get going on some of my projects!!

  13. Sarah Baer says:

    I love the Fairy Frosts because I am originally from MN where we always had frost on windows, on trees, both bare and Fir.

  14. Judy Haphey says:

    Such beautiful fabric!!! I LOVE FABRIC!!!

  15. nadine morrison says:

    what great christmas fabric. I haven’t made a Christmas quilt yet, so hope to win one of the bundles to make one. Would love to use the fairy frost for a tree skirt.

  16. Sarah Gervais says:

    My favorite bundle is the Snowman’s Land. I love the bright colors and the fun design. I’ve just started quilting and am looking forward to making a christmas quilt.

  17. Joanne Plesman says:

    “FABULOUS” fabrics… lots of great ideas… can’t wait to start sewing my Christmas projects. Time to snuggle down for the winter with some of these great fabrics.

  18. Levina says:

    Beautiful Christmas fabric. Love, love. love it!

  19. Mike says:

    Love, Love, Love them all! How to choose? Not me I want each of these beautiful fabrics and can see a lap quilt, new Christmas bed quilt and ….. the list is endless.

  20. Carolyn F. Jordan says:

    The fabrics stimulate my immagination. The holidays are a time for remembering the elderly folks who often keep some sort of lap covering close by. The Christmas theme is certain to warm their heart every day.

  21. Sandy McClellan says:

    Love all off the collections but my breath is taken away by the Fairy Frost.

  22. I so Love ” Always Believe”. It is soft, gentle and whimsical in appearance which makes it perfect to ” hold that thought” for many things that are happening in our world these days.This is apart from never letting your first childhood memories of Christmas go !!! I also love them all for the same reasons.

  23. Sue says:

    My favorite is a tie. I love the Always Believe and Fairy Frost. The others are beautiful also. Very tough choice!

  24. Linda E in AZ says:

    Those Michael Miller Fairy Frost blues are outstanding!!

  26. Ninna K says:

  30. Katie Sanders says:

    I would love to win! All of the fabric bundles look great!

  31. Rose says:

    How exciting! Love Music of the Season….what great fabrics!

  32. Marquita Patteson says:

    I love the Fairy Frosts blues from Michael Miller Fabrics. They would sure help me to build a stash of fabrics which I have very little of a fabric stash. I would be happy with any of the collections, tho. Thank you.

  33. June Mahr says:

    Fairy Frosts are absolutely beautiful. That is my first love and then the Music for the Season is pretty sweet too!

  34. Carol Barringer says:

    I love using blue for Christmas. It gives a pop of surprise, and visually matches wintery weather. And I love the “Fairy Frost” fabrics in any color/weather! I like the aqua/blue in the “Snow Globe” fabrics, and again in “Music of the Season.” The blues make the reds so warm-and-cozy looking.

  35. Centella Tucker says:

    Love the rich colors in the Cherrywood fabrics!

  36. Gayle Freeman says:

    Those Cherrywood fabrics make me feel so warm inside. I can’t wait to snuggle up with them. I hope Santa will be generous this year and send an early present!

  37. Jane Freeman says:

    Love the Fairy Frost Blues as well as the beautiful quilt from,your magazine!

  38. Carol Edwards says:

    The Fairy Frosts are my favorites. I have used them in several projects. They come in so many colors and truly make a project look special.

  39. Crystal says:

    I love Christmas fabric…these are so beautiful…

  40. Pam says:

    I have not made a Christmas quilt and absolutely love these fabrics!!!

  41. ruth says:

    Oh how beautiful and soft these fabics are. Love them

  42. Gail Alley says:

    Over the weekend I picked up the “Best Quilts for Christmas” magazine. I read it today, Halloween. Much to my dismay, when I went to your website, I found out that all the “free stuff” ended yesterday. Today is still October. From the looks of this page, all these bundles were given away way before the end of October. Just wanted you to know that not everyone gets the magazine, or sees the ads, the day it’s published. And I’m not on the computer all the time either. Too busy sewing. I realize you must have deadlines, but you could at least have them thru the next issue printing.

  43. Mary Kate Karr-Petras says:

    @Gail — I can understand your frustration, and I want to take a minute to address your concerns. The official “display until” date for Best Quilts for Christmas was October 17, and our Best Fat Quarter Quilts issue went on sale the following day, October 18. Because of that, we ended the Christmas giveaways in October to turn our attention to the Fat Quarter issue.

    So the bad news is that we aren’t giving away Christmas fabric at this time. The good news is that we’re giving away other fat quarter bundles on a weekly basis through November and into December. The giveaways will be announced on Tuesdays or Wednesdays, and we hope you’ll stick around to see the offerings over the next few weeks.
