It’s Fall – Perfect Pumpkins, Glorious Gourds and a Bundle of Beautiful Batiks to Give Away!

Fall is my favorite time of the year. Mother Nature puts on a beautiful show, the air is crisp, and the holidays are just around the corner. Good grief – Halloween is next week!  Check out these great pumpkins.

Straight from the patch.

There’s no frost on them, as it’s been over 80 degrees every day this week! I guess the weather has something to do with the fact that our trees aren’t exactly radiating with traditional fall colors. We did have two small earthquakes last week – aah, life in California.

And look at these wonderful gourds. The colors are so vibrant – and those shapes -they’re all so unique!

Beautiful colors and shapes!

The mini gourds and pumpkins are my favorites (especially the little white ones – ever so chic!) These days my idea of carving a pumpkin is getting a black sharpie and drawing a happy face on a mini.

Cute little mini gourds and mini white pumpkins.

It seemed like the perfect time to give away a beautiful bundle of batiks in fabulous fall colors.

If you’re a batik fan and would like to be entered in the drawing for this giveaway, post a comment by end of day on Halloween. The winner will be selected and announced in my next post, Tuesday, November 8th.

Trick or treat!

    I love batiks and your selection of fall colors is wonderful! Thank you for the chance to win. My favorite method of pumpkin carving is also drawing a face with a sharpie!

  7. Audrey says:

    I just returned from a business trip to Florida. Although the beaches and palm trees were pretty, there’s nothing like the colors of autumn in Pennsylvania! I can’t wait to get back to my quilting projects this weekend. I love batiks, but those colors are especially warm and wonderful (just like home)!

  8. Fall has arrived in southern Louisiana. The leaves on the maple tree in my front yard are turning to beautiful colors. This morning it is cool, I love it. Goodbye summer, hello fall.

  9. Teresa says:

    We always joked that October was earthquake (awareness) month. And this month it really is!
    Love the batiks, and I’d love to win!

    PS – Found your website from a postcard pickup at the Pacific International Quilt Festival

  10. Deb says:

    We’re having some nice fall weather down here in Florida and it feels so great! We don’t get the turning colors of the leaves, but many trees are in bloom with beautiful flowers, so we do have some great color!

  11. Debbie says:

    I love a batik! Christie, you introduced these wonderful fabrics to me in a class I took from you for my 3rd quilt. Fall is my favorite time of the year.

  12. Karen L. says:

    Those pumpkins and gourds were just gorgeous… .living in South Florida, the only time we get to see displays quite like that (and truly, nowhere near that!) is in the grocery store… and those fabrics – a perfect pairing with them… I’d love to work with them!

  13. Mary says:

    Fall is my favorite, too. Why can’t it last longer?
    I love the batiks – they would look great in a fall leaves quilt I’ve been wanting to make.

  14. Barbara says:

    Those are gorgeous batiks. They would be perfect for some tablerunners I am planning to make as gifts for Christmas.

  15. Teresa says:

    Love the fall colors you chose for the batiks. And love your makeup bag pattern.

  16. Jen Manuell says:

    What’s not to love about Batiks? :-)

  18. My favorite time of year and my favorite colors. Hope I’m the lucky winner.

  19. elaine says:

    you’re correct about fall–perfect time of the year. the new fall colors are the treats we wait for after the hot summer.

  20. Our autumn colors here in Iowa have been glorious! And the weather has been too… until today. High of 50, a sure signal that winter’s on the way. Those batiks would warm a cold quilter’s heart though. Thanks for this nice giveaway. Fabric is always the best thing to try to win.

  21. barbnstephen says:

    I love seeing your Autumn colors there in America! We have the same here in Germany in the middle of a very agricultural area in the Southwest part of Germany. Here they call all pumpkin and gourds Kurbis and they make plenty of soups and dishes eating them. I’ve become a fan! I love your Batik fabrics as well, my favorite colors are the Autumn ones- my neighbor even teases me about loving brown! You know too how beautiful it all can be when mixed with the Autumn colors.

  22. lorraine M says:

  44. Here in Spokane WA it was 29 degrees this morning and the leaves are falling like crazy. My favorite time of the year. All the leaves remind me of that beautiful Batik fabric.
