It's eight fat quarters of Junebug Fat Quarter Bundle by Dear Stella Fabrics. Don't you just love those spring-like colors? If we can't have spring, we can at least surround ourselves with the colors of spring, right?

So here's what you need to do to win:

1. Leave a comment on this post telling me your favorite holiday cookie. Don't like cookies? Tell me your favorite holiday candy. Don't like candy? Tell me your favorite holiday bread. Don't like bread? Seriously...what are you eating? Tell me that.

2. Followers, brand new and still innocent or old and crusty, can gain a second chance to win by telling me how you follow. You can follow along in lots of different ways. Just check out my left side bar there for ideas.

I will ship internationally, and so this giveaway is open to all residents of Planet Earth. Giveaway will remain open until Sunday, December 11th at 5:00 p.m. PST. Winner announced Monday December 12th. Good luck!

Now head on back to Sew Mama Sew for some more good goodies.

Love Spritz cookies! Just checked out your gallery. Wow! Can't believe how many quilts you have made! Really love Pumpkin Patch a lot. Thanks for the giveaway.

Lisa Boyer said...

I like those white powdery ball cookies--are they called Mexican Wedding cookies? Anyway, they just melt in your mouth, but leave white powder all over your fingers, face, and down the front of your shirt. If you try to sneak some home to eat in private, they coat everything in your purse! They should be called "Tale-tell Cookies," because everyone can tell you've been eating them!

I love to make squares and any with sweetened condensed milk are what I do at this time of year. My fav is one with chocolate chips, nuts, coconut, dried cranberries and marshmallows over a graham cracker crust. Sorry don't know the name. Just know the "yum" quotient on it which is exceedingly high.

Oh my, favorite cookie? That's a hard one! Peanut butter kiss cookies are a tradition at my Mom's house, as are the soft cut-out cookies that she makes, but I also love oatmeal cookies with white chocolate chips and craisens! BUT! I also love no-bake cookies (called Sweet Treats at our house) and cream cheese mints (which we call Wedding Mints)!
Is it any wonder I need to go on a diet????

Also, extra points to you for all the kitties on your blog! Love!

June D said...

My favorite holiday cookie is a sugar cookie flavored with peppermint, colored and arranged to look like a candy cane. Even better with a brownie bite on the side too! Although I just got a recipe for Fake Almond Roca that was delicious at a party. Going to make it and see how that goes too - it might become my new favorite! Thanks for the chance!

At holiday time, my favorite cookies are sugar cookies with icing. Cheesy, sure, but I love 'em. They're even better if somebody's grandma made them just before we arrived and insists that we have a couple more than we think we should, but that we secretly want to have.
