Last night Denver got its first snow of the season. Just a dusting, really, but enough of a change from last week’s warm and dry weather to compel me to treat myself to a pumpkin spice latte on my way to work. I know the temperatures will be warming up again in a few days, and a latte won’t sound quite as appropriate, so I decided to indulge.
But I didn’t really come here today to talk about the weather. I need to make this short and sweet so I can get back to working on patterns for our Best Fat Quarter Quilts special issue and articles for the February/March issue. Therefore, it’s time for a giveaway!
Even if you’re enjoying every second of your autumn (or perhaps spring for our Southern Hemisphere readers), I think it’s safe to assume you want a chance to win this:
We’re giving away a fat quarter bundle of Gum Drops Tonga Batiks from Timeless Treasures, one of the collections featured in the Staff Picks section of the October/November 2012 issue of QN.
[Please note: This giveaway has ended. Congratulations to Dixie, winner of these beautiful batiks! Thanks to everyone who participated!]
For a chance to win this bundle – seriously, doesn’t it just put a smile on your face? — leave a comment below before 11:59 p.m. MDT on Monday, October 8. We will draw one name at random. One comment per person, please. Open to those who haven’t won something from Quilters Newsletter in the last 90 days. Be sure to check our blog over the next few weeks for giveaways of the other three collections featured in the current Staff Picks; following us on Facebook is a great way to learn the latest from QN.
But if you win this week, I suggest you stash this fabric away and just keep enjoying the change in seasons, whatever they look like in your part of the world. Then, when that day arrives when you need a quick pick-me-up, you can pull out this instant rainbow. Even if that day is as beautiful and cozy as the one we’re experiencing right now.
