Cooler weather!!

Carol said...

I'm excited for fall, because cooler weather means it's less tempting to be outside, which means more indoor hours = more quilting hours!

Anne said...

I'm excited that it's football season again and that the weather is turning cooler.

Dawn said...

Fall is phenomenal. The last of the heat and stickiness is behind us as we leave a wilted and burned summer to move into cool, crisp and fresh autumn days. Cicada droning gives way to squirrel chatter as the evenings grow a little longer. The tastes of fall grow richer as the harvest comes in. I love to see the change of seasons, the perpetual cycle of nature, and fall is my most favorite season of all.

Gill said...

I'm excited because Autumn is apple season which means time to make cider!!

I love the cooler weather, ideal for hand knits, and longer evenings indoors for crafting.

Bec said...

Fall is my favourite season but it's not quite the same over her in Australia as what it is back home in Canada. We are just heading into spring and that's just not right for Halloween. Needless to say our house is still decked out in fall colours for October :-). Love your autumn block too and would love to win a layer cake :-)

I love everything about fall! It is my favorite season! My husband and I were married in the fall on Sept 27th (giveaway day!) our first child was born in the fall, the air turns cool and crisp, apples, pumpkins, and other goodies are harvested, hay is in, we can enjoy bonfires, roasting marshmallows, etc with friends!

Leaves turning, falling and crunching under my feet. Snuggling on my porch with a quilt and a book.

sophie said...

Wherever I have lived or visited, the weather is always great in Fall (and the tourists have, for the most part, gone home). My birthday is in the fall. I was married in the fall. It has always been my favorite ...

I love it when the evenings cool off. It makes sleeping so much nicer under a quilt.

Susan C said...

I love the cooler weather that fall brings. But most of all, i love that it brings my birthday and my sweet granddaughter celebrates her first birthday this fall!

Jane S. said...

I love autumn, it's my favorite season! There are lots of reason why I like it. It smells good, it's hot during the day but cold at night (so I can get the quilts out), and all that color from the leaves turning is amazing. Thank you for the chance to win some fall fabrics! :)

I love the colors of fall. They can be found everywhere--on apples, pumpkins, leaves, flowers, and even on people :)

Judy Von Feldt said...

Fall is a beautiful time of year here in New England - changing leaves are gorgeous. It is also bringing my gardening season to an end and an opportunity to start work on my first quilt.

Sandra said...

The maple trees are starting to turn those glorious fall colors. I can start cooking stews and soups in my slow cooker and start making fall quilts for presents or myself and now feel quilty about what's for dinner. You are definitely one talented designer and look forward to many more quilt patters coming soon. Thank you for the generous layer cake which will come in handy now.

LJ said...

I love the change of seasons and I always seem to notice big changes when fall arrives. I actually look forward to getting my gardens ready for winter, picking the last of the veggies, spading the dirt, raking leaves. I accept the change of seasons so much better than any of change in my life.

Brenda said...

I am excited about fall for the one big reason - color.

ljeanne said...

I am excited for fall especially after our long, hot summer in the south.

Judy and Bob said...

There's lots to love about Fall: The colour of the trees, riding through the crackle of the leaves and feeling the friskiness of my horse - something missing in the heat of summer. Cooking with apples and pumpkin, making soups and chilli. I think fall is THE best time of year!

JoyceLM said...

Warm days, cool nights & college football - that makes fall exciting. Thanks for the giveaway.

Swedish Scrapper said...

After the non-summer I just had, I am excited to be "in season" as it were. Bright sunshine, sapphire skies, crisp air and woodsmoke-- heaven on earth!

lynaeve said...

Kimberly Cassie @ Quilty Doodads said...

I am so excited about this fall in particular. Hubby and I have purchased a new (to us) home and we move in a couple of weeks. Fall in our new home will be wonderful! Thanks for the giveaway!

Loris said...

Such a fun question :-) I love fall as every year I find myself excited about leaves changing color, the air getting cool and brisk, and just knowing that there is a special feeling in the air for me.
Thank you for the lovely giveaway! This fabric celebrates my favorite season.

Mouster1 said...

Looking forward to fall for the change of colors. Nothing is so spectacular than to see nature in its finest. Thanks for the chance to win.

MoeWest said...

I love all the colours of fall. The evenings are cool here in September but the days are still warm.

schmidt1016 said...

For me, the colors of the leaves against the bluest sky of the year is something that always makes me smile.
Thank you for the give-a-way!

Christine Burns said...

I am always astounded in the beauty of creation when the leaves begin to change color. This happens because the chlorophyll (green pigment in the leaves dies, leaving the other pigments ( in various shades of reds, oranges and yellows) to shine through. I love driving through the forests of Michigan and seeing mother natures pallette of colors.

sue said...

I like fall weather is usually fairly mild, new crop of pears and apples. Less yard work more time for sewing :)

Judy1522 said...

I am excited for fall because it is my favorite time of the year. I has cool weather, beautiful colors and it's the start of the holiday season.

I am excited for Fall because I very much love the colors during that time of year. I also love the crispness in the air. The air seems to smell cleaner, in a sense. Nothing like the smell or colors of Fall

Anonymous said...

I used to be very sad, when fall came. Now I have gradually learnt to like fall. I like how trees are changing colours, evenings are getting darker and it's fun to light a candle in a lantern outside. Possibility to plant next springs flowerbulbs and enjoy beautiful springtime garden. Time to do more handcrafting (knitting, sewing and quilting). Annaleena

Jytte R said...

I love the autumn season because of all the beatiful colours in the nature, the smell and the stillness. And the long dark evenings with good time for my favorite patchwork.
Thank you for the giveaway.

DoubleL said...

I love your fall because that means summer down under.

BizyStitches said...

Well, besides the cooler weather, the colorful leaves on the trees, to me fall means that the NBA basketball season is just around the corner. I love to decorate in fall colors as well. Thanks for the chance to win the beautiful fabric and I love your block.

Edna V. said...

Fall - so neat to be outside raking leaves and finding acorns and chestnuts; planting pansies and mums - beautiful! Thanks for the chance to win!

Joanna @ Shape Moth said...

I just learned that you have a blog, Kimberly. Not sure how it happened, that I didn't learn about that a long time ago... I should have ;) And fall, hmm, I love the colors of leaves. And the yellowish glow of the setting sun and how the air smells in the morning. You can feel, that cold is comming.

**squeeee!!** I love fall ... it kicks off a season of celebrations for me! My birthday is early in October (which accounts for nearly a month of celebrating, right?!), followed by Halloween, Veteran's Day, Thanksgiving, Christmas, and capping off finally with the New Year. The onset of fall starts the party!!! The fabrics in Phenomenal Fall are *gorgeous*!!! :)

M.W. said...

We live in Florida and don't really get a 'fall', but look forward to Thanksgiving when we can open up the doors & windows. However, my daughter and I are heading to N.C. to visit my parents/grandparents for a weekend in October. Hopefully we will get to see some great fall foliage.

Cal said...

Fall for me is synonym with excellent produce! I love Fall cooking, getting back to using the oven as the temperature cools, love the bounty of the Fall's markets.

Lori said...

Living in the midwest we get the full fall effect. I love that I can do canning and see the fruits of our labor from the summer. I also love the slightly cooler weather. And call me weird, but the bugs in the house move slower, so they are easier to catch. LOL

Patty said...

I love seeing the trees turning colors. There is a tree that turns the most brilliant red here in the midwest.

SarahZ said...

I LOVE all of Sandy's Fall fabrics! I am excited about Fall for so many reasons, but this year I am especially excited that I have 3 rows of PUMPKINS that are actually maturing...they are gunna make it!!! YAY!

Libby said...

I am excited about fall because you wake up to cool mornings and the atmosphere seems to be more relaxing. The color of the leaves changing are amazing, the deer grazing, squirrels scampering around getting ready for the winter; pumpkins in the garden are turning orange, it's just an amazing time of the year for me.

Judith said...

I just love this time of the year and enjoy sitting outside in the morning with a cup of latte and my guard cat Prissy enjoying the sunrise in some cooler weather. Love it! Thanks for sharing today...Judith Texs

ikk said...

The beech trees are changing its colours every day, fresh apples & pears and new wine to come - that's exciting, but on the other hand - short days, rain, wind - if one could stay at home snuggled under nice quilt, that would be great, but going out, yak;)

The Patchsmith said...

I am excited about the fall because I get to watch the squirrels gathering acorns on my daily walk. Also, the colours on the trees in the autumn sunshine are a sight to behold. I just love it.

Jill said...

I am excited for the cooler temps., the colors of fall, hayrides on beautiful fall nights, football games and hot apple cider.

lauraluvsloons said...

Fall is a glorious time of year where I live, on a lake in NH. Walking my dog on our country road, see the changing colors, picking apples and going to the Fryburg fair are some of the fun things I love to do.

Marcia W. said...

Fall excites me not just because of the leaves turning and lower temperatures -- October is the time for my brother's annual hayride party for "the little ones"... and I enjoy being around my grandnieces. Thanks for the chance.

scottylover said...

Two words: cooler temperatures! :) After the summer we had being able to sleep with the windows open and the A/C off is amazing!

I always look forward to back to school sales, pumpkin lattes and pies, canning, apple picking, leaves changing color and the release of new fabrics!

JaneB said...

We always go apple picking and get our pumpkins for Halloween, too. The stores sell fresh pressed cider and apple pies ready for baking. Can't beat an afternoon in the orchard. I live in Washington State.

Debby said...

I am excited for the beautiful colors of the leaves like you have in your block. Thanks for sharing.

Cindy A. said...

I love fall because the humidity that the south is so well known for decreases and you can sit on the front porch again in comfort. Also, we have a maple tree in the side yard that is gorgeous when the leaves turn color. The kids don't rake up the leaves any more and jump in them, but the memories are still there each fall when I see the leaves on the ground.

supersara20 said...

I love fall because my birthday is in the fall! It's my favorite holiday!

I'm very excited for fall because it means cooler temperatures, comfort food & most of all the beginning of training for our sled dogs. Lots of hours & miles on trails together with my dogs! Fall also means that winter is just around the corner!

Jo said...

Well, i love fall for the weather and colors, but i really dislike it because it means winter is coming. I guess i have a love/hate relationship with fall.

MaryBeth said...

Love your block!! It's finally cool around here in Maryland, so I'm loving that!!

hennies.pennies said...

Each season is such a blessing! Fall brings crispness to the air and crispness under foot. The colors are so vibrant and somehow it is cozier indoors with a little fire going in the stove to warm us, body and soul! Be especially blessed, Kathy

Edna Kidd said...

I love the colors of the leaves and the nice cool evenings. Can even start a fire in the wood stove.

I was excited for fall because of the wedding of my best friend's daughter on 09/22. Now I'm looking forward to the rehashing of stories, sharing favorite memories of the wedding, and making the bride gifts from the pictures I took.

I'm excited for fall because this has been a very hot summer for me. I'm looking forward to the cooler nights. But I love the colors and the smells.

I am excited for Fall as I like the cooler temperatures, Fall colors, and fewer allergies.

I love Fall because of the cooler temperatures and the beautiful colors. This season just makes you want to quilt for the colder weather to come.

Just completed a weekend jaunt and saw many Maples turning--Fall is here in No. CA.

Thanks for the chance to win the fabric Layer Cake. Beautiful colors!!

Hurray for the chance to win a layer cake! I would love to win. :) My favorite thing about fall is the pumpkins becoming available at the stores. Pumpkin bread, pies, muffins, drinks, and some many other new recipes to try! Between the pumpkin availability, my birthday, and my anniversary, it's my favorite time of year!

I am excited for fall because every October is my favorite craft expo in Toronto, and then my weekend quilt retreat! It always gets my creativity re-sparked after the summer garden-fest.

Fall is my favorite season. Warm days, cool nights, the leaves turning colors, and Halloween. Doesn't get any better than this!

I love fall! I love the scents, the change in the light, the colors, Thanksgiving. You name it, I'm crazy about it.
