Fall has arrived.
It's the best time of year.
Colorful leaves, pumpkin pie
Making quilts with friends
Are what I hold dear.

Marjorie's Busy Corner said...

Well; I'm here to say Hi!!
Next week I'm making pie...
My quilts may be late;
The community won't wait!
It's fun to get together
And celebrate the Fall weather.

Chris Goscha said...

Fall is my favorite time of year,
The kids are back in school, it's time to drink beer.
With the kids at school,
Instead of us at the pool,
All day I can quilt,
Without any guilt.
Quilting is so relaxing,
Instead of summer heat which is taxing.
Quilting and my kids are my two great loves,
They both fit me just like gloves.

Carolyn said...

Fall is here, finally some relief.
Here in Texas the rain has been brief.
So what I've done is stay in and quilt
Instead of going out where I would surely wilt.
Thanks to FQS my credit card is on fire
but hubby is great so there is no ire!

*and this is a stupid poem!* but was fun! LOL

Jackie said...

While most of the country is seeing changing leaves
And putting their arms in warm sleeves
Florida is not experiencing this at all
Because the heat and sun continues in the Fall.

thank you for a chance to win and remember....I'm not a poet!

All Things Beautiful said...

Well, I'm not great at making rhymes
but I do love the smell of apples cider and homemade pie.
Sewing,quilting and fabric shopping with friends these are the things that put a sparkle in this mama's eye.
The season of fall brings leaves, cooler weather and smells of all kinds, but what makes me happiest are the moments spent my family and I.

Char said...

I used to love my sweaters
but now I'm always hot!
Being of a certain age
I love my sweaters not!
So now I leave my sweaters
in a little cardboard box!

Editfolt said...

Én vagyok a legelső
Ez nagyon felemelő!
Íme itt egy versike,
Megnézzük hát érted-e?
A Te hazád Amerika,
A lehetőségek országa,
Én viszont Magyar vagyok,
Az én csillagom itt ragyog!
Amerikai szövetet nyerni?
Ezt szeretném én megérni!

I am the first
It's very uplifting!
Here is a rhyme,
So you look at it?
America is your house,
A country of opportunities,
But I'm Hungarian,
My shining star in!
American fabrics to win?
This I want to survive!

I can not rhyme with English? Fun game!

Lindsay Conner said...

Apple cider can't compare
To Little Apples fabric flair.
A pumpkin pie is quite the thrill
But Pumpkin Kona better still.
Fall colors and the changing leaves...
I want to win some fabric, please!

Cathy said...

I'll pick a pattern
for a jack-o-lantern
for a quilt to
adorn my wall.
While the leaves are blowing,
I'll take pride in knowing
we're all warm and cozy
wrapped up warm against the chill.

Patty C. said...

A festive Quilt
like fallen leaves
spreads it's beauty
for all to see

Robin (RsIslandCrafts) said...

Fall in Florida is sometimes a bit wetter...

We never really need a sweater...

but I still love to snuggle under a quilt!

Manda said...

The leaves fall off the trees,
The flowers disappear, as do the bees.
The colours of the season change,
Crunchy orange leaves in the lanes.
The festive season is drawing near,
Hurry up and get that crafty Christmas to-do list cleared!

Jen@thecraftingfiend said...

fall sweaters
hot apple cider
dreaming of summers return

Tanya said...

This time of year makes me a little sad,
Because I know that soon the weather will be bad.
But there are many good things that we get to do,
Before we get hit with the dreaded flu.
Apple picking, pumpkin choosing, and pie making are just a few.
This poem writing thing was kind of hard to do!

WoolenSails said...

I love Apple Cider,
but I don't like Spiders.

I would enjoy a Hay Ride,
if the straw didn't stick in my side.

And this is how I feel about fall today,
my brain is a jumble in a silly way;)


Irelle said...

An interesting contest for this time of year
When hayrides and jack-o-lanterns are seen far and near
The leaves are turning bright shades of orange and red
Providing inspiration for a quilt for my bed

James-Linda said...




Marci Girl said...

A little limerick fun:

So hungry I wanted to cry,
baking I could give a try.
I had some flour,
and about an hour,
so I made a delicious PIE!

Melinda said...

Autumn comes but once a year,
Bringing things we hold so dear.
Apple cider, pumpkin pie
Halloween, you can’t deny!
Changing leaves of gold and red,
Early to rise and quick to bed!
A festive quilt and sweaters cozy
A hayride makes my cheeks all rosy!
Jolly Jabber, you’re just so great,
to win your prize, I just can’t wait!
(well, hopefully anyway!)

Emily Elizabeth said...

Fall Haiku

Brightly colored leaves
Cold winds making me shiver
Time to sew more quilts!

Little Island Quilting said...

Let's not have a post-mortem
About whether it's fall or autumn.
Is it jumper or is it sweater?
Either can be worn you betcha
Because wherever you are and the leaves turn
A passion for all things quilty we yearn.

(My English teacher would be turning in her grave now if she could read this!)

ledamewood said...

Autumn Hayride

The wagon was filled to the hilt
With children wearing pants, dresses and even a kilt,
They all sat in the middle so the wagon wouldn't tilt
And to keep warm stayed under the quilt

Dawn said...

The instructions say to pick only one
But sewers who follow rules don't have as much fun

Especially when there's so much fabric for which to shop
and the colorful fall LEAVES are just starting to drop

A FESTIVE JACK-O-LANTERN QUILT would be such a thrill
to use on a Hallows Eve HAYRIDE when there's many a chill

APPLE CIDER and SWEATERS is what everyone will want
to help warm up after a spooky hayride jaunt!

Even a slice of warm apple PIE ala mode
would complete a FESTIVE trip down a dark haunted road!

After all that, the glow of the Fat Quarter Shop site
will help any quilter recover from the frights of the night!

Alicia said...

The season upon us is fall, don you know?
With quilts, apple cider and leaves all aglow.
Pull out the sweaters for this festive season
And bake up some pies! Its such a good reason
Or maybe a hayride to mark to occasion
Carving a Jack-o Lantern is for children behaving.
For The reds, and browns and oranges that pop,
Get your supplies at the Fat Quarter Shop.

Penny P said...

Sweaters, a quilt, and apple cider
Warm and cozy, but a crazy rider
The festive haydride goes bump-diddy-bump
On the ruts and leaves oh my what a thump!
I want to be by the fire with my friends, and pie,
A jack-o-lantern and a sigh

kelly lautenbach said...

Apple cider and pumpkin pie,
Quilts and sweaters, my oh my.
Autumns coming, yes it's true.
I hope I win some fabric from you!
:) Happy Fall, y'all!

Camille said...

I'm glad to wear a sweater,
It makes my figure look better,
You see, I can't lie,
I too much love pie.

Norine O said...

Here in paradise, the seasons don’t change
Temperatures do vary slightly in range
Leaves do fall because they are dead
Sweaters are worn, sometimes in red
I’m trying to write a poem so I could win some dollars
But nothing comes to mind that gives a holler
I love to buy fabric to add to my stash
But too many times, it takes away my cash
I soon hope to sew a holiday quilt
That won’t give me any guilt
Jolly Jabber give me a win
So I can enjoy pie and apple cider
And my days will feel much brighter!

Captain Sharmie said...

it's officially fall
which means it's time
to find the sweaters
you left behind

put away flip flops
pack up summer dresses
collect hats and scarves
and clean up your messes

eat pumpkin pie
and sit by the fire
with a cup of hot chocolate
and friends to admire

while fall is pretty
the transition from summer
to the cold of winter
can be a bummer

but cook comfort food
and put on a sweater
and you might feel
warm against weather

so let's all be ready for fall
cause it's my favourite season of all!

Cathy said...

Won't you go on a hayride with me
Lots of pretty leaves we will see
In our pretty fall sweaters and quilts we will be so warm
Until the yellow jackets start to swarm


Laura said...

I love fall and autum leaves because I like to wear long sleeves.

L&M Creations said...

Fall is here!
I am excited, want to know why?
It's the season cider and pumpkin pie!
A time to be festive,
To sit back, be reflective.
A season of hayrides cuddled under a quilt,
With a love that time has built.
Of jack-o-lanterns, sweaters, and leaves,
And farmers bringing in the sheaves.
Who knew how a game of rhyme
Would end up being so divine!

Lara Petch said...

In the fall, the cold winds blow
Bringing nearer thoughts of snow.
Delicious turkey, apple pies,
Children dressed in disguise.
Warm maple syrup, cinnamon,
Piles of leaves for jumping in.
Putting quilts upon our beds,
Wearing toques upon our heads.
Shorter days, and Northern lights
Canada's autumn is a beautiful sight!

Goodness me, I haven't written a poem since I was in school!! Hope I win for all that effort lol!!

Krissy said...

With the shortening of the days and the turning of the leaves,
people go about with rosy cheeks and lengthened sleeves,
rich scents and colors make for an atmosphere thats festive,
while cozy fires in snug homes makes for spirits that are rested,
this season that is so beautiful to behold
is autumn rich and bold.

Leah said...

I carved myself a jack-o-lantern.
My kids said he looked quite stern.
So I put him in some festive sweaters
and glued on him a head of feathers.
To improve his mood we ate good food
and drank a swig of apple cider,
in which they put fake spiders.
Then I took him on a hayride
and snuggled him by my side.
The sky was raining leaves
and my pumpkin said, "Please,
Can we get off this ride
and go inside?
I'd really like some pie."
Once inside he began to tilt,
so I propped him up with my newly made quilt.
From the window we watched the sky
and all the witches riding by.

Nicole said...

Sweaters, hayrides, apple pie
leaves are changing in the sky
this is fall changes for most
but now is a quilters time to boast

Time to bring out oranges and greens
reds & yellows, purples and creams
lets show off our wonderfull hobby
with quilts to hang in the lobby

Now is the chance for me to win
It sure would make me grin
and get my husband off my back
when the last bill came he almost had a heart attack

Rebecca said...

What does Fall mean to me?
Changing colours, falling leaves . . .
Baking, canning, batches of pies,
Fill the freezer, I like to try.
Buy some fabric, plan some quilts,
See my stash, not an ounce of guilt.
Fieldtrips to the Pumpin Patch,
Oh yes, smells like Fall at last!

Thanks for the chance!

crescendogal said...

Apple Cider and Pie,
Fall has arrived. Oh my!
Tis the best time of year
To make Quilts we hold dear!!!

Татьяна said...

Behind a window autumn leaves also fall
I сежу in свитаре also eat an apple pie.
Tomorrow a holiday and I продарю a blanket gult

Janet said...

In fall the leaves all turn yellow
This I suppose should make me feel mellow
But fall makes me sad every year it is true
I'm longing for spring and for flowers that are blue
I should take out some fabric and sew for awhile
I'm sure that will put on my face a big smile

Alicia Winkler said...

The crisp Autumn wind bellows in, closing summer for all.

The leaves change as they age into their more beautiful and festive colors!

The wind tugs the leaves from their branches and swirls them like lovers.

Oh to be carefree!

AnnieK said...

Fall is here, Fall is here!
My very most favorite time of the year!
Time for pumpkin bread and apple cider,
Won't worry till Spring 'bout my hips getting wider.
Big sweaters and jackets can hide many sins,
This poem is silly, but I sure hope it wins!

Michelle said...

Though leaves and flowers wilt
I look forward to time to quilt
In the warmth of my craft room
As cooler days ahead loom.

supersara20 said...

I sure do love apple cider.
Way better than bathroom spiders.
I wish I was a better poem wrider (artistic license!)

Haha, so silly!

Sarah Marie said...

Roses are red, violets are blue.. I LOVE FALL how about you?

Little Jill Horner sat in a corner eating her pumpkin pie. Along came a spider and sad down beside her and said.. mmmmmmmmmm pumpkin pie.

Catskill Quilter said...

Roll up my sleeves
And rake up those leaves!?!
I think not!
I'll go inside
And in the workroom
I'll hide as I
Sew with pride
On a Fall quilt -
With pride!

Carol said...

Apple cider, apple cider
Apple cider sounds like spider!
Spider, spider
Under my bed
I shall now hide my head.
Under quilts my head does'nt show,
But I tell you now
That spider must go!
Mmmmmmm, apple cider.

sowingstitches (at) yahoo (dot) com

Mud said...

Spiced apple cider
And giant black spiders
Come 'round once a year
So never you fear
The weather is cooler
Grab your needles and rulers
Southbound geese sound their call
Welcome back, Fall!

Mary said...

Fall is my season,
The color's the reason.
The frost on the ground,
the leaves swirling round,
Make me want to dance.

I quilt all the year round,
My fabric stash grows in leaps and bounds,
Quilts in rich fall hues,
Golds, oranges, rusts, reds and blues,
It's autumn year round by choice not by chance.

kath in ohio said...

My favorite event comes in the Fall. The County Fair and quilts in the Art Hall...and the caramel apples, I love most of all!!!

MG said...

Apple cider, pumpkin pie
This rhyming thing is worth a try
To win a gift certificate
So I can make some quilts with it.

Gale Yawn said...

You say you like fall
The best of all
Hayrides and jack-o-lanterns can be fun
But cold weather only makes my nose run.
My favorite season is really spring
'Cause I'm just a quilting ding-a-ling!

Nancy said...

My favorite time of year is fall;
for many different reasons.
the LEAVES turn colors (QUILTers love that!)
sweaters get worn (and scarves and hats!
it's a lot of people's favorite season!

There's APPLE PIE and CIDER too!
and HAYRIDES (that go right past my house!
The fall is FESTIVE, sleep gets restive,
and many JACK-O-LANTERNS to view!

Natasha said...

I'm goin' on a hayride
to see the fall leaves.
I'm goin' on a joyride,
to see what I can see
I bought some apple cider
and a pumpkin pie,
I'll hang my halloween spide
and hunt for mums to buy.
I'm pulling out my sweaters
and my warm weather quilts,
Fall can't get any better,
Wool sure fits the bill!
I'll make my jack-o-lantern,
and what I wouldn't give,
for a new sewing pattern
to make my house more festive!

R Neal said...

With turkeys and pumpkins,
The Fall months are festive.
My quilting awaits and I
think that it's best if
I accept that the housework
and cooking may slide,
As I sip on some cider
Or enjoy a hay ride!

Michelle said...

Pumpkin, apple, cherry
pecan, lemon and blueberry

All of them were oh so yummy
but now a bad feeling in my tummy

I dont want to lie
I ate to much pie

I need to lay under my quilt
until I feel better from this guilt

Reader Owl said...

Leaves falling
& autumn quilt fabrics
So cozy

Sherryl said...

Autumn has come, time for hot apple cider
For hayrides on All Hallows Eve
I’ll dress as Miss Muffett with a spider beside her
And jump in a huge pile of freshly raked leaves
It’s Autumn! I love it. No weather is better
For gathering my family, a quilt and some pie
I’ll put on my favorite nubbly sweater
And we’ll sit on the porch, watching neighbors stroll by.

What a fun challenge. Thanks for the chance to strain my creative muscles in a new way!

The Army of Four said...

The scents of Autumn fill the air -
pumpkins, leaves, apple cider.
I'm my mom's Guide Dog for the Color Blind,
She can't choose colors without me beside her.
PS: Please cut me some slack; I'm a Siberian Husky.

ritainalaska said...

rake the falling leaves, carve a jack-o-lantern
wrap up in a quilt and go on a hayride
in beautiful downtown seward.
a bonfire on the beach, serve apple cider and pumpkin pie,
have a festive time at the bay side
of beautiful downtown seward

Kristina Tabor said...

A haiku:

Autumn apple pie
Cinnamon spiced and crusty
Warm bite, swallow and sigh.

(I love this contest! Combination of poetry & fabric is perfection, in my book!)

Jovanna said...

Fall is here, see the leaves?
I need to clean the eves.
Laughter is in the air,
We make quite the pair.
Sit down and enjoy some pie,
Your smile doesn't lie,
Autumn has arrived.

Martina said...

Apple cider in a pie,
this makes beat my heart so high!
Autumn leaves on my cozy quilt to be;
sewing,sewing like a busy bee!

Nancy C. said...

Fall makes me restive
Because the colors are so festive.
The smell of pumpkin pie
makes me think I just might die;
But making a new quilt will relieve me of the guilt.

Peggy said...

When I see the autumn leaves
falling from the trees and the winter weather is not far behind.

Stitching, sewing, and quilting help to pass the time.

And a cup of hot apple cider is just the thing
to help me face the winter until it is spring.

Kelly said...

Autumn colored leaves on the trees
A new soup simmering on the stove
92 days til Christmas! OH GEEZ!
Into creating, quilting and making I dove.

There’s cooler weather outside
Soon an extra hour of time
Online with Fat Quarter Shop and my last dime
to make the holidays special for this family of mine.

Pam said...

I want to make a fall quilt.
I am deciding upon a pattern.
Will it be falling leaves
or maybe a jack-o-lantern?

Mom C said...

Jack o Lantern sighed as he sat all alone and sipped on his apple cider,
"I'm tired," he moaned, "I'm worked to the bone.
"Could I have the piece of pie now Der?"
Mom Lantern gave a quick nod
though she was holding a wad
of leaves
ready for pinning
to the quilt that she'd hung
and the garlands she'd strung to make her booth festive and winning.
"When you're through bellyaching, grab a sweater, we're taking
a hayride for fun and relaxing.
You've helped me , it's true and I'm nearly, almost through but it's got to be perfect, my booth for Quilt Market."

Cecily said...

Fall is the best time of year.
It brings so much holiday cheer.

Pumpkin, turkeys, & sweaters galore!
I love to hang wreaths on my door.

Fall is the best time of the season.
Just make sure to wear your gloves!
Fall weather can be freezin'!

Diane said...

This is going to be fun!

When leaves fly by
On a hayride with pie
It's jack-o-lantern time
With apple cider sublime
So to the studio we go
To make festive quilts grow
While fall rains make us wetter
Do make use of that sweater
Add one more quilt to your stack
When our fabric we attack
Then back to the FQ Shop
To buy for fabric with a plop

Megan said...

Oh me, Oh my,
I do love pie!

Short and sweet--that's me!

Andrea said...

Today I want to buy
A pie that makes me sigh
But as hard as I try
And I don't ever lie
I may cry
If I don't get more pie

charlotte said...

For me the fall
is best of all.
I'll just die until
I make a pie
while my deck gets built
I'll sit and quilt
and watch the leaves
blow in the breeze

Myra said...

Autumn brings us apple cider,
Jack-O-Lanterns and maybe a spider.
Pumpkin pie is sure to please.
I love fall with it's glorious leaves!

Thank you for the generous giveaway!

Lacybelle said...

On a hayride with friends wearing sweaters and leaves

Pickin’ seeds from jack o lanterns and spittin’ in the breeze

We’re off to make quilts, please don’t cry

When we arrive home, we’ll eat a festive pie

annmarie said...

I perceive now the leaves they are fallin.

Time for sweaters & hayrides & pollen.

But nay, nay I say without any guilt.

I'd much rather stay in and quilt!

WHAT FUN! Thanks - I already like yu on FB.

Handbags by Helen said...

OK, I confess
I'm an intruder here.
Not from the US,
But I hold fabric dear.

My husband (bless him!)
tolerates my obsession with quilts.
we can't move for cotton,
But i'm still racked with guilt.

I'd make him a sweater
Just to say ' thanks, sweety pie'
But I really should know better
He'd just prefer pie!

Bettie said...

Oh my, what can I write -
Jack-o-lanterns and fright nights?
Something funny or something grand,
perhaps about our beautiful land.
Apple cider and pumpkin pie,
delight the senses & please the eye
Sharing with friends one and all
festive traditions great or small.

Patricia P. said...

The wonder of apples-cider, cakes and pie,
Which one do I choose, my oh my;
It's time for these apples, my favorite season is fall,
What treat to make first, I love them all!

Leslie Bauer said...

Well, i like what the girls before me said so i thought it best to get out of bed. I have many quilts that await me here, some spring some winter some summer and fall. Oh dear, how will i finish them all? Now we are coming on a new season and my thoughts are turning for this reason. All the new fabric, they are so nice. Quilting, quilting, it is my vice!

Garilyn said...

I will be happy as pie,
with fabric in my eye,
as I sew my quilt,
without any guilt.

Garilyn said...

I will be happy as pie,
with fabric in my eye,
as I sew my quilt,
without any guilt.

Amy said...

I used them all, but it doesn't rhyme perfectly... do I at least get an A for Effort? ;-)
Thanks for the fun!

In the Autumn~~~

I will drink apple cider
While watching the spider
That's crawling on my sweater
Knowing I should do better
At working on my quilt
Without any guilt.

But taking the kids on a hayride
With all the fun it will provide
While the leaves
Fall from the trees
As we carve a jack-o-lantern
And bake a pumpkin pie -
All that joy, I just can't deny!

Kathy MacKie said...

Rustling leaves
Now under foot
Their life near the end
Prettiest they are
For falling

imagrandma2five said...

When the moon is full
and it's frosty outside
nothing's more fun
than an old fashioned hayride
Under a quilt snuggle hubby and I
The stars look so bright
up in the night sky
Summer is gone and winter is near
But for right now Autumn is here

odd duck said...

I'd like to try
to bake a pie.
Or not.

: )

Joelle said...

Fall is in the air
Leaves about to turn
Smell of apple pie
Baked,but not burned

Cooler nights arrive
Jack-o-lanterns near
Into a quilt I dive
And snuggle with my dear

brenna said...

A really good pie
Can make me cry.

Dianne Mitzel said...

What a happy time to eat apple pie, pumpkins and quilts to make, it all makes me sigh..The perfect time to drink apple cider, and be thankful for Fall out, there's a spider!!

I am Just One Mom said...

Love to quilt
without any guilt.

Love Autumn leaves
with a cool breeze.

Love Ruth's apple pie
it can make my dear husband cry.

stephmabry said...

(Thanks for an amazing giveaway - good luck, everyone!)

Fall is now here
And everything's festive
Yet I can't help but feel
Just a little bit restive.

Hot apple cider
And warm pumpkin pie -
Both of them bring
A sweet tear to my eye.

Snuggles under a quilt
My dear grandmother made
Brings up memories
Of long-ago holidays.

Lee Ann said...

Fall season is festive.
People are restive.
Forests of colorful leaves
often layers eaves.

Pies give off lovely smells.
Jack-o-Lanterns lose their cells.
A hayride in the cold
and quilts are used to cover the old.

Sweaters, Sweatshirts and coats
starts the season for sore throats.
Warm Apple Cider drunk
will ease the funk.

{No, I didn’t say a bad word.
This poem just turned absurd.}

Pamela said...

In the fall we roll down our sleeves,
Go back to school and rake the leaves,
We enjoy some nice hot apple cider,
and admire the web of the garden spider,
So many things to like about fall,
It really is the best season of all!

Colleen said...

Oh my, oh my,
Have to bake that pumpkin pie!
So much to do, no time to quilt
Wait! I can always quilt without any guilt!!
And who can resist that fresh apple cider
No time to lose, I'll pull an all-nighter
And quilt till my heart's desire!

Sherry said...

Thanks for the giveaway and the fun!

Fall is here, the leaves are turning.
For apple pie I have been yearning.
As the pie bakes I'll sew a quilt block.
Then we'll put on our sweaters and go for a walk.

Julie N said...

With sweaters and quilt
We'll start the hayride "full tilt"
While the jack-o-lantern and scarecrow
Watch leaves tumble and fly.
Just a sip of apple cider and a piece of apple pie
remind us festive times all too often hurry by.

Barb in Mi said...

Autumn Light

When I look outside in the autumn light,
There is so much color to see.

The Leaves are changing orange and bright,
On a hayride I'd rather be!

Take some apple cider along for the ride,
Wrapped in a quilt and heavy sweater.

The jack o'lantern will be my guide,
It truely can't get any better!

How fun - love your poem contest! Thanks so much for a chance!

Mom2RyandSis said...

Fall is here, time to cheer!!
I can work on a quilt without
any guilt :)

Marcia W. said...

Welcome to Fall!
Where we eat pie
Before a hayride
Where we drink apple cider
When we gather
Where jack-o-lanterns burn
And look so warm
When we snuggle with a quilt
Without any guilt
Because the fabric won
Is that which was sewn.

Tracey Sayler said...

Fall is here
For this I must cheer.

The chill in the air
makes the fabric "magically" appear (don't tell my hubby)

So on to Fat Quarter shop I will hop
with a nice warm mug of hot cider.

The fabric selection is the best,
I will pick a print with a spider

The boy's will love that
with a ghost or two

then I will sit down at my sewing machine
Woo Hoo!!

Barb said...

At the October meeting
Of the Quilters of Keating,
The members shared patterns
Of cute jack-o-lanterns.
Then, the newest member,
Who joined in September,
Taught them applique
The needle-turn way.
Then, with new friends beside her
They drank apple cider.

Boody Babies said...

Festive gatherings and apple pie
Me oh my, oh me, oh my.
Hayrides, jack-o-lanterns and apple cider!
Can my smile get any wider?
Yes it can, I do believe
as I catch a glimpse of falling leaves.
Sweaters donned, a quilt wrapped round
keeps me warm while leaves fall down.
Autumn, autumn bright and sunny,
how I would love to harvest some Fat Quarter Shop money!

Fall may be here
In the northern hemisphere.
But down here in Oz
We celebrate because..
Spring is here!

Although it makes me sneeze
and wheeze!
I love the warm sunshine.
I struggle though to find the time
To stay inside and quilt.

Complete some sewing?
or check what's growing?
But three boys need their mum?
Sadly time only allows for some
and a mum's love always comes first.

Quiltin' Sandy said...

No matter the Season
I don't need a reason
Guess I'm just gonna quilt
until I wilt! :)

Donna Stees said...

The turning of Autumn leaves
to shades of gold and yellow
Means it's time to pull out the long sleeves
and air out the coats and sweaters.

The filling of my inspired brain
with quilt dreams oh so festive
Suggests that I can only attempt to contain
my holiday fabric buying obsession.

The flooding of the my country house
with the aroma of pumpkin pie baking
Motivates me to leaf through books and browse
for an ideal jack-o-lantern quilt for the making.

The crackling of a warm log fire
on that first crisp and chilly fall evening
Recalls to mind those childhood nights of which I desire
filled with hay ride laughter and haunted house screaming.

So the crafting of my fabric shopping lists
and my plans for stitching all those holiday patterns
Inspires me to raise my mug of apple cider and insist
to all crazy quilting folks east, west, north and southern.

“Happy Holiday Quilting you all!!See ya at the store!”

Anonymous said...

Shorts are packed,
Flip flops too,
Pie's a-baking,
Lots of quilts to do.

Cider is simmering,
Leaves are turning,
I'm obsessed by this quilting,
Ut-oh, pie's now burning!

wendy said...

Don't get pie on your quilt,
as you rush to complete,
make it festive and jolly and oh my gosh golly, don't be late for the hayride among the fallen leaves.

Happy Cottage Quilter said...

Can you tell?
Can you hear it?

The rustling of leaves,
you'll soon feel it,

As the temps start to fall
we will sing a new song,

The cool breeze whispers - AUTUMN -
please don't be long.

wendy111 said...

As the leaves change and fall
Oh, we shall have a ball
The jack-o-lanterns glow
The apple cider does flow
Fill me up with pumpkin pie
Time to sleep and under my warm and snuggly quilt I lie

Charlotte said...

I don't like fall,
No I don't like it at all.

Good Bye to Summer,
to say good bye seems such a bummer.

From the cold weather I need to hide,
so my time must be spent inside.

Oh! But wait there's no need for me to wilt,
because I get more time to quilt!

So oh yes, I do like fall,
I do like it all!

lisa said...

hi, my name is lisa.
I am a barista
I love the FALL
cool weather and all.
I dont have to sneeze
when I jump in the LEAVES.
I don't like a spider.
I love to wear a SWEATER
could fall be any better?
I need a new fall QUILT
perhaps one will be built
with a gift card won
when this giveaways done.


Little Miss Shabby said...

My oh my, how lovely it would be
To make a quilt without fabric buying guilt.
Almost as great as calorie free pie.

Ok so maybe not my best effort!

mean sarah jean said...

Sipping hot apple cider,
curled up in a chair.
Watching colored leaves
fall gently thru the air.

Dreaming of hayrides
and warm pumpkin pie;
Knitted wool sweaters,
and caramel corn, oh my!

Candle lit jack-o-lanterns
by the front door
Make this season festive
like the Raven, "ever more".

My sewing machine beckons;
I can not commit.
I am simply too comfortable
wrapped up in my quilt.

Shannon said...

It is time for fall
can you believe it ya'll,
With black cats
and fat bats,
Cold nights
and orange lights,
Time for a hayride
wearing quilts with pride.

Dandelion Quilts said...

Jack-o-Lantern light up the night
Jack-o-Lantern you give us a fright
You go out of sight!

Anita said...

Why I Love Fall

My favorite season, best of all,
Not summer, winter, spring, but Fall.
A crisp excitement fills the air
Festive Fun Days, everywhere.
There's apple picking all around,
As leaves start falling to the ground.
The sun sets sooner, the days grow short
Football is the favorite sport.
Apple Cider and donuts are a tasty treat
After bumpy hayrides on a wagon seat.
Soon Jack-o-lanterns will light the way
For children dressed up in holiday play.
And I'll snuggle up tight in my quilt so warm,
With a book to read and some Candy Corn.
Fresh baked pies are produced with glee
Black Friday boasts a shopping spree!
And sweaters are seen, on young and on old,
As the autumn air is sometimes cold.
Yes, there’s more to Fall, than meets the eye
I guess that is the reason why,
I love this season far above,
Any other season that I love.

I love poetry. Thanks for allowing me to be creative and have a chance to win. I do not have a facebook account, so I'm sorry that I cannot follow you there, but I do follow your blog! =) Thanks again!

Apple cider
Apple pie
I can't stop eating
If I try.
The fall brings goodies
Oh so sweet
I love to eat
And eat and eat!

Carol said...

The first day of Fall in Az and I feel like I'll wilt
Hurry and cool off, I want to cuddle up in a quilt

Cooler days would be so much better
I just want to put on my sweaters

Get put my Fall quilts with leaves and Fall colors
Finish some quilts and start some others

Vroomans' Quilts said...

My gransons come next week
for apples and pumpkins to seek.
We'll go on a hayride,
their smiles will be wide.
Applesauce, Pumpkin pie,
colorful leaves of Fall -
Wonders for 'show-n-tell for all.

Joanna Jenkins said...

I cannot lie
I love pumpkin pie
Piled high
With the whipped stuff that goes straight to my thighs.

Please count me in!

Jess said...

Here in the southern hemisphere,
it's summer not winter drawing nearer.
But my quilts I'm still making,
and apple pie I am baking
as we wait for some warmer weather.

please forgive my awful poem,
I would LOVE to win this one.
As I sit here in my sweater,
waiting for the weather to get better
I dream of what to buy if I won!

thanks for the opportunity to display my dismal poetry skill :)

Cecilia said...

I love to eat apple pie
I cannot tell a lie
I taste the flaky crust
until I'm about to bust
It is good that Thanksgiving Day
only comes once a year our way
For if it happened more
I wouldn't be able go through the door.

Leslie L said...

Here in New England
The leaves soon will be turning
The logs in the fireplace
Too will be burning
I’ll head to the orchard
For apples and cider
And find inspiration
For the fall quilt I’ll be makin’...

...with the prize I hope to win from my favorite online quilt shop!

Ann Marie said...

After being on the motorcycle all day
as only the rider,
We have finally arrived at our destination
and are drinking some warm apple cider.

As the chill fills the air
and the flowers start to wilt,
we spend more time inside
cuddled up with our quilt.

We just finished eating dinner
we served up chicken thighs,
and now for dessert
we are having individual apple pies.

Oh wo that filling was hot
burnt my tongue so bad it made me cry.
As I brush away the tears,
I ask are we still going on the hayride?

It is even cooler outside
so I know I had better,
go back inside
and grab another sweater.

Now that I have all my layers on
espeically my long sleeves,
we are ready to go for a ride
and see all the changing leaves.

we love the weather changes
the air makes you want to live,
maybe it is also all those colors
that give a sense of it being festive.

When the evening is over
we go to the tavern,
because they are having a contest
of carving Jack-o-Lanterns!

Patty said...

When the flowers start to wilt,
I bundle up in my quilt.

Nicole G said...

Sometimes the changing of season
Is a very good reason
To make lots of pumpkin pie
And hang quilts to dry.

Katy Cameron said...

There was a girl on a hayride
Who ate too many apples and died
The apples fermented
Inside her and then did
Make cider inside her inside

(I'm so sorry lol)

drmithome said...

Pie, pie, I like pie.
Apple, peach, I can't lie,
Pie, pie, I like pie.

Ellyn said...

I'm happy it's fall, but it would be better
If it would get cool enough to wear a sweater.
Even September is hot where I'm sewing
So I'll turn up the AC & pretend that it's snowing!

Kinda Crunchy Kate said...

I'd really like to win some fabric
So I could make a quilt
It would relieve me of the guilt
I feel for spending my dinero
On such pretty fabric-o

Ummm...You didn't say it had to be a GOOD poem, right? I don't think I've written a poem since high school, although I'm sure you couldn't tell that from the example above. Ahem...

Tong said...

Summer's ending
and the leaves are changing
Classes are starting
and the playground is abuzzing
Go out and keep playing
before the snow starts falling

Jessica said...

I wanted to knit a sweater
but then, wouldn't it be better
to sew together a quilt
but then I would feel the guilt...
I have thread and some fabric too
but nothing's better than fabric that's new!
So please, FQ shop, pick me to win
I've got a new quilt I want to begin... :)

Deb F said...

Winning a Fat Quarter Shop certificate is for what I yearn,
So that I can choose fabric and a quilt pattern
By the light of my scary jack-o-lantern.

Lyn said...

A chill is in the morning air
Warm sweaters are taken out to wear
Kitty snuggles close to me
Dreaming of birds flying by in vee

Grace said...

Like all of the scraps in a beautiful quilt,
So the way my life has been built.
God in His wisdom and love has made me,
A beautiful piece of this history.
I've made some mistakes and I've let him down,
But now sees me worthy of a glorious crown,
Thanks to the gift of only Son,
There is redemption for everyone.
Praise be to Him who is good and He's kind,
Just look at me now and I know you will find,
A life that he's taken...from scraps He has built...
A life of simplicity, beauty, comfort and a beautiful quilt.

Thanks for the chance to enter!


grannyanne said...

The Jack-o-Lantern was lit tonight,
His face! His face! Oh what a fright.
A crooked grin,
That says com in,
A trick or treat within my sight!

Thanks for the chance to win...

Ginger said...

It's fall and time for apple cider
open wider
and try some pie

Kira said...

Down the leaves swirl,
While my little girls twirl.
The sand, boys are dumpin',
near apples 'a plumpin'.
If only the moments would stop and hold still,
They would go much more slowly for this mom's heart to thrill.

BillieBee (billiemick) said...

As I watched the leaves fall through the sky, I put on my sweater and got ready for the hayride.

jackiero said...

you hollerin' quilters
see the ducks, all in ditch-line
along with apples, leaves and hay stitch-stiches...
hay, hay and more hay...quilters sitting bundled together appliquing... as they take their Fall hayride...sharing stitch results, quilt results, sister in stitch results :)

Bevann said...

In my sewing room, a song in my heart
I just love this fabric, and love this part,
Watching needle and fabric go ‘round and ‘round
Humming a favorite, familiar tune,
Maybe this isn’t the norm for all
But for me, when I’m sewing, I’m having a ball.
As stars, blocks and colors work as one,
I think about what this’ll look like done…
Will I keep it or make it a gift?
If I give it away, I’ll have to start over again,
With something else I’d like to keep or share,
Kind of like the trees this season, once green, now nearly bare,
Leaves dropping one by one…should go rake, I guess
But making a quilt is WAY more fun…!

Rachel said...

The winter chill is in the air,
The wind is whistling through my hair.
Down from the trees are falling leaves.
It's time for me to wear long sleeves.

That was fun!

Theresa said...

Fall has finally arrived,
it's time for apple pie,
and a joyful hayride!!

Nancy said...

A Bright Jack O Lantern will light the way,
We'll have warm Pumpkin Pie, and Home Brewed Apple Cider.
Flying Ghost and Goblins, a old Black Spider.
Gorgeous Autumn leaves, my knitted Sweater with tattered sleeves.
Let's bring the Log Cabin Quilt, the one that Momma built.
A Festive Fall Hayride, with you by my side.

This way Fun!! Thanks!!

Hey Vern said...

It really peeves me
When everybody leaves me
For cozy couches, turkey and cake
And when the summer brights
are abandoned for winter whites
And coats are trimmed in all things fake
I want my summer back
Daily walks on the local track
Basking in the golden sun
Walking with furry friends
Enjoying warm summer wind
Reminiscing on things we’ve done
I’ll don a sweater now
Soon turtlenecks and comfy cowls
Take crunchy strolls with nothing to eat
Most trees are sleeping soon
Shedding leaves in life’s jiggly room
The ground - a carpet of coppers and wheat
Heavenly scented cinnamon treats
Sweet chocolate candies and savory meats
Inspired and inside – a little stash to burn
I yearn for summer, but fall’s taking it’s turn.

Many gifts to make – the list weighs a ton
So to seams and nesting I will run.
K. Vernon :-)

Cynthia said...

Fall is near,
You are such a dear,
I will make you a quilt,
For the house we have built.

Lolawid said...

What's that I spy
with my little eye?
It's some beautiful hues
(can I take a cruise?)
It's a quilt I made
lying in the shade.
It holds those most dear to me
under that tree.
Now what else do I spy?
Yum, looks like some pie!

Larissa said...

Halloween is my favorite day
Giving candy when the children say
Those magic words I love to hear
As the jack-o-lantern strikes fear
A time for costumes and parties and fun
I barely miss the long days of sun

Perry said...

when we were young our moms were our betters
and they always told us to wear our sweaters
and drink apple cider.
But watch that spider
he's there in the leaves
having the heaves.
That isn't festive
and certainly not restive,
but here comes the hayride
with our boyfriend beside
the orange jack-o-lantern
and the horse in a canter
chasing that pie
oh me oh my
it fell on the quilt
and then it spilt

I couldn't resist, lol.

Donna said...

I would love to win the giveaway and make a beautiful quilt,
I could purchase the fabrics I want with not even a little guilt!
It would be a festive quilt with leaves of all colors,
And over the years the quilt would touch the lives of others!

Pepe said...

On my quilt are falling leaves,
more and more red and yellow where we live.
For you, my love, on the quilt are apple pie and apple cider,
happy autumn picnic on this side of the river...

jednoiglec said...

(I'm not speaking English well, so forgive me my mistakes:)

Red or green, tasteful and juicy - in one word cute!
How in Polish, French and German is called autumn best fruit?

Jabłko, Pomme, Apfel,
And in English simply apple.
All these words means the same,
pronouncing it incorrectly won't be your blame.

But when patchwork house is built
there's only one word for it: QUILT!

Glenys said...

Come autumn or fall,
I love the wind and all.
Leaves in yellow, leaves in red,
But too bad they're all dead.
I hope I'm the duck,
Who doesn't run out of luck.

Lucy said...

You might say I'm bonkers
because I love collecting conkers,
I just play some Buju Banton
while I light my jack-o-lantern!

Happy Autumn!

AlyceB said...

Here Down Under, it's Spring, not Fall;
So our leaves are growing, no sweaters at all.
But pie we will eat,
We still need a treat:
Strawberry, perhaps cherry or even apple!

Little Creatable said...

As the leaves of Autumn fall,
Bring on the festivities for all!
We'll have pie & apple ciders,
For all the hayriders!
Quilts and jack'o lanterns,
Let's hope there's no tantrums.
May this be a happy fall for all.

Sara said...

Who doesn't like pie?
If I said I don't that would be a big fat lie!
You can never have enough,
Apple pie is my favorite with the struesel stuff:)
OR how bout lemon meringue,pumpkin,pecan, cherry,
Some sweet blueberry?
The crust has to be homemade,
Otherwise my appetite would fade!
Smells of freshly baked pie,
How else could I get by
Every bite,
Brings awesomeness to a new height!
What do you like about this yummy dessert?
After eating too much does it make your tummy hurt?
Have a slice for me,
And then in pie heaven you will truly be!!!

krislovesfabric said...

My happiness is built,
on fabric to make a warm cotton quilt!

Christy said...

It's time for Fall weather
so get out your sweaters.
Lets go on a hayride
with a quilt padding our backside.

Brenda said...

Without a quilt
I would soon wilt.
Fall is the perfect weather
to wear a sweater.
I love falling leaves
that leave the trees bare for me.
Taking a hayride
with my honey by my side.
Fall is perfect for apple cider!

Making quilts, I love to sew.
They're warm and cuddly, don't you know!
They're a hug from the heart
When we're apart.
I make them for loved ones and strangers,
Even quilting exchangers!!
Making quilts - cuddly and warm,
They get us through life's strongest storm!

Anonymous said...

In the Summer heat I began to wilt,
Now that it's Autumn I'll really quilt,
I am surely not a poet,
But indeed I know how to sew it.

Vivian said...

I'm in the festive mood
to create a fall display
but I'll have to wait until later
because I'm getting ready
for my son's wedding day.

(Next Saturday!)

pasqueflower said...

Button your sweater
And grab your rake!
See how big
A pile you'll make.
When you're finished
And back inside
We'll head out again
For a Fall hayride.

JCnNC said...

A hayride I will go with my sweetie by my side.. covered by our special quilt .. loving our sitting time without any guilt. Awesome and wonderful times - thanks for the opportunity to win. Judy C

Love fall leaves
But not bees
Yummy apple cider
Yucky brown spider
Snuggle under a new quilt
And don't feel no guilt

Thanks for the fun giveaway!! Happy fall!!!

Laurie said...

What could be better than a jack-o-lantern sweater? Warm, cozy quilts? apple cider or pumpkin pie? blazing colorful leaves? maybe a festive hayride under a bright blue sky?

what could be better than Fall? the love of friends and family for one and all!

thanks for a chance to win - Laurie

harleywife57 said...

The fall colors are here
So is the fall dark beer

It is time to put on a sweater
It will hide by belly better

My grankids want a jack-o-lantern
I just want fabric and a new pattern
(oops , it ALMOST rhymes!)

I went to a hayride and had to cry
Somebody ate all the pie

It's raining and cool;we can't ride the Harley
So I must make a big pot of soup with some barley

I must clear my head
by baking some fresh apple bread

thanks ; this was no that easy to do but it was FUN !!!

Lisa said...

A charity quilt I want to make
This I’ll do in memory of mom

Where to buy the fabric of late
My favorite shop at

In festive colors of fall it will be great
Offering someone comfort and calm

jenna said...

As I sit here and sip on hot apple cider
I look up to notice a creepy black spider
He tells me 'no fear, be of festive cheer
the time of sweaters and hot cocoa is here'
At this point I wondered and started to sigh
When Mr. black spider requested some pie
This is when I began to feel some guilt
I figured I'd better put down this quilt
For Autumn is here and the leaves are falling
Time to make jack-o-lanterns is calling
Down the street they're having hayrides
Plus the kids really want to go outside

paula, the quilter said...

I love to quilt
But the summer heat made me wilt,
The autumn leaves
Make me sneeze
And I hide
From the hayride.
I stay in my house
And sit with my spouse
While sipping apple cider
As I stitch a binding miter.

Fall weather?
Time for sweaters
more time to quilt
and have some pie
or jump on a hayride.

QuiltKorner said...

Fall is the time for apple cider & pumpkin pie.
I'm going on a hayride.
I'll keep warm with my quilt...
Dreaming of quilting til I wilt.

I'm not poet
and I know it!

DelyneNunez said...

Yesterday, Fall arrived in all its golden glory ~
So I sat down at the sewing machine to quilt an Autumn story.
I thought of all things I loved about this time of year ~
Jack-o-Lanterns and pumpkin pie always bring good cheer!
I brewed a cup of apple cider and gazed outside to see ~
A group of children playing underneath my old oak tree.
The leaves were turning yellow as they readied for the season ~
Soon it would be sweaters we were wearing with good reason.
So festive was I feeling as I turned back to my quilt ~
My cup of cider on the side, sloshed and almost spilt!
With love and joy I quilted the entire day away ~
This quilt will be fantastic when we’re riding in the hay!
Quilts, they tell a story… they hold memories oh so dear ~
And warmth to all our loved ones through this special time of year!

N. Perez said...

When trees shed their leaves
We all know we've got to bind off our quilts.
When the light outside gets dimmer
we'll bake our pies and worry not about being thinner.
For fall is here my good friend,
the season I love and wish had no end.

Jade said...

Fall is finally here!
Such a festive time of year!
Leaves will be red, yellow, then brown.
But not a single jack-o-lantern will be wearing a frown!
"Why?" you say
Because Fat Quarter Shop has a great giveaway!
So grab a pen,
May the best gal win!

CathyG said...

Fall is here
great time of year!
Say goodbye to summer
that's a real bummer!

Anne said...

There once was a lady from Heider,
Who loved to drink apple cider.
She drank so much
That she fell on her tush.
So now there's a leaf pile beside her.

Rachelle said...

Wow! juices a flowing what a great crowd!
I haven't a creative word but
I am glad to be in such great company!
Happy Fall, happy quilting
Good luck to all!

Nancy said...

Fall is here!
It's my favorite time of year,
With pumpkin pie, cooler weather, and beautiful colored leaves.
I love to cuddle up with my quilts and need my long sleeves!!

Kelsey said...

Hmm, a poem, a poem,
But what one earth rhymes with gno'me?
Perhaps I should stick to things I know
Before I end up all in woe
A quilt, yes a quilt!
A million ideas to be built
With needle and thread.
That is where I will tread.
And leave poems to those
Who can weave magic with word and prose.

Kari said...

I'm going to decorate for fall to the hilt,
starting with a festive new quilt,
with colors of fall leaves,
to be enjoyed many cool eves,
I'll revel in the season with no guilt.

Karen Linton said...

Hayrides with my sweetie are quite delightful
Walks in the 'hood with jack-o'lanterns? Frightful!
But snuggling by the fire under a homemade quilt
Is relaxing and romantic and doesn't induce guilt.

Lissa said...

Fall is here.
It's my favorite time of year.
I love watching all the leaves,
and wearing long sleeves.
I love the smells of cider and pie,
I'm so happy I could cry.

Thanks for the chance.

Linda said...

So many quilts to make and not enough hours to play.
Should I sew? Should I cook? How should I spend my day?

Well, quilting’s quite healthy, helps maintain my trim physique.
Busy hands full of fabric don’t have a moment to eat.

And time in the kitchen? Well I love to bake pies.
But darn, how those calories go right to my thighs!

Anonymous said...

would you like to go on a HAYRIDE with me? can't tell you just where it might be. Hop on fast so you won't miss the ride. we're almost there, can you guess? It's the Fat Quarter shop at it's best. Open the door and step inside, fabric, kits, and quilts Oh My! so open your purse and buy, buy, buy! Come on now it's time to go, back on the HAYRIDE Now wasn't that a show! Fat Quarter shop is in the know.

Dirt Road Quilter said...

Digging out sweaters, piling quilts high too
Fall's in the air, there are fun thing to do.
Crunching leaves, baking pies
A jack-o-lantern with smiling eyes.
Gathering neighbors for a festive hayride
Sipping apple cider, my honey by my side.
There's room for the FQS family too
We're saving spots for your whole happy crew!

Lawana said...

As leaves and temps begin to fall,
Into wooly sweaters go we all.
Festive hayrides, oh what fun,
Wrap up in quilts before its done.
Night goes quickly, the bats do fly. We love Jack-o-lanterns, cider & apple pie!

Kathryn said...

Apple cider is on my grocery list
Along with apples for pie.
If I can't find time to quilt today,
Baking for fall is the reason why.

Dona said...

The slightest color as the leaves begin to turn
Even one of the bushes looks like it's starting to burn
Sweaters folded neatly in the drawer
Think I will have to go buy more
The red and gold rustle around in my mind of quilts
To nestle within the corners of the home I've built
It's time to meander the shelves of liquid gold
To create another story that needs to be told

Bonny said...

I am a quilter and a blogger
who sometimes likes to holler!

Some people say I 'bewitch'
with my needle and threads that I stitch.

Halloween is the perfect time of year for a hayride
I am friends with the horse - Clyde.
I see so many colors in the trees, sky, pumpkins
No, not pies!

This inspires me to quilt,
so the wagon, I quickly jilt!

I'm off to buy my supplies
at the Fat Quarter Shop in the sky.

My broom is the fastest way to fly,
gotta get all the specials, I cannot lie.

Kim and crew helps me attack
all the fabulous material stacks.

I tell Kim I need a border that is wider...
It has to hold all of my black widow spiders!
My head is spinning from all the grinning,
Could it also be the spiked apple cider?

She finds the perfect fat quarter,
now to find enough for my border!
We find it and scream!
Yeah Kim's Team!!!

This is exactly what I need
to make my quilt of black, orange, purple and green!

Betty said...

I want a piece of pumpkin pie,
Oh my, Oh my!!
I will sit and quilt without any guilt!!

hueisei said...

When the leaves are so yellow
And the vines with grapes abound,
When the melons are so mellow
And the nuts fall to the ground;
So, it's time for fall.

Twinstitches said...

What a fun way to start off the fall!
I must admit we're all having a ball!
I felt a little silly, trying to compose.
But we'll give it a try so here
Sit back and relax as I enthrall.

Summertime is done, so we must say goodbye.
Time for warm sweaters, falling leaves, and pumpkin pie.
A new festive quilt, I just have to start.
FQ Shop has some new fabric, be still my heart!
I must go get my wallet to buy!

Thank you Fat Quarter Shop for helping us to exercise our brains and for the the wonderful giveaway! Good luck to everybody and I loved reading all your poems!

Laura said...

We went on a hayride, apple cider in hand;
It was cold! Quilts and sweaters were in high demand.
Jack-o-lanterns were festive and leaves were replete;
A big slice of pie made our evening complete.
