  • Judith Blinkenberg

    I enjoy sewing in the spring. There are wonderful floral prints and that’s when I make most of my quilts. Thank you.

  • cathy k

    Spring is my favorite season.. I like shedding the winter coats for something lighter. I am waiting for the spring flowers to start popping up.

  • Susan Berteaux

    My favorite season are three of the “between seasons” Between spring/summer; between summer/fall, between fall/winter. Lol!

  • Susan

    I like all the seasons for different reasons, but I guess Fall would be my most favorite. I like the cooler temps, the changing colors, and the scents. Spring would be next in line for the emerging flora and colors that have been dormant all winter. Also Easter is in the Spring and that is my favorite holiday. Winter would be third as I like the scenery after a snowfall and there is something striking about the lack of color that I like. It is almost calming. Summer would be last only because I don’t like the humidity that generally accompanies the heat in my neck of the woods. The best part about summer is the amount of sunshine.

  • Malinda Dagenhart

    My favorite season is summer. I love the heat and the slower pace of life. Summer reminds me that I need to enjoy a vacation, go to the beach and enjoy all the wonderful fresh produce.

  • Amanda Adams

    I love fall! I think its because of all the changing colors and it’s so beautiful to quilt with them.

  • Brenda Stonesifer

    I love the change of seasons all year but springtime is my favorite. The beginning with forsythia, redbud trees and daffodils followed by dogwoods and tulips are so beautiful and uplifting. Don’t forget the greening everywhere. Wish it could last longer but a ride further west from here shows springtime Bloons a week later. Many thanks to Pat Sloan for all you do!

    My favorite season is fall. I’m ready to slow down for summer do some fall cleaning and start decorating my house for fall and Thanksgiving. In New Mexico we don’t have all the vibrant colors like back east. We do have the cottonwood trees and aspens. So I like to bring in more colors. Thank you for hosting this giveaway.

    Love, love, love fall! I live in Florida and the break from the long hot and humid days is so nice. Those sunny, crisp days with a blue sky…I love them! We also travel north in the late fall to see the colors. In Florida we don’t get those!

  • Alana

    I love Spring when things turn green again after gray and white winter! Speaking of love-Pat’s creativity and enthusiasm. She is contagious!

  • Rosemary Orner

    Winter is my favorite quilt season. A time to slow down and enjoy family and friends. A time to snuggle with a good book and your trusted quilt. A time to share your quilted treasures with those you love. A time to sit by a fireplace and dream of all the quilts you want to make. A time to share with those that are less fortunate and suffering in so many ways. A time to love just a little bit more. A time to create magical memories and remember days gone by. A time to have a childish whim. Eat that cookie. Make that snow angel. Ride on a sled. Build that snowman. Be dazzled by the lights. Always Believe ❤️

  • Janet Sabol

    I hope there’s still time to enter. My favorite season is summer. In winter I do a lot of quilts and am trying to catch up to have just as many for summer.

  • Dee
