We're doing this the old-fashioned way--everyone's name is on a slip of paper in a Wal-Mart bag! Drum roll please.....the winner is Beth of The Jury is Still Out! I just went to your blog, Beth, and found out a little bit about you. Could these squares become a quilt for the Dyl Pickle? That would be cool! (Coincidentally, my daughter's name is Beth, but DH couldn't see that when he closed his eyes and drew your name out of the bag.) Congrats to Beth, and thanks to everyone for entering. I got some great recipes and menu ideas from this drawing!
I will email Beth right away so she can send me her snail mail address.

From reading the comments, I gather that there is a lot of chili and apple crisp being consumed this time of year. I think I'll be making them soon, too!

1) You must answer the question: What is your favorite thing to cook or bake in the fall? (I might want the recipe!)
2) If you do not have a blog, you must leave your email address for me to use in contacting you if you win.
If any messages don't meet these requirements, I will have to delete them. Sorry!
Anyway, here is what you can win! (the best part) I am offering a collection of 35 I Spy squares. Each is 6 1/2" square. These are perfect for a quilt for a boy in your life or for making a quilt to donate to Project Linus. They include sports, animals, dinosaurs, astronauts, and many kinds of foods that kids love.
Here's my inspiration for offering this as a prize: I recently donated a boy's I Spy quilt to our local hospital. I got the most wonderful feedback! It was given to an 8-year-old boy who was there for a surgery connected with his Cerebral Palsy. He cannot speak well but has a very active mind, and he and his parents thoroughly enjoyed playing games with his new quilt. They would ask a question, and he would point to the answer. He left the hospital with the quilt over his lap in the wheelchair and a big grin on his face!
Please enter my drawing! Maybe you can make an I Spy quilt for a special kid in your life. Also, click on the scarecrow link at the right to find a list of other blogs having fall giveaway drawings.
