Autumn Jubilee!


Finally, it is almost October and we can really get into the Autumn season, my favorite!  It was wonderfully cool last night, down to the low 50s, and I got out my sweater this morning to go to the Asheville Quilt Guild’s Quilt Show.  I have been working on a special event for the past month by sewing, crafting and designing just for you dear readers for Autumn Jubilee!  Gather all your scraps in Autumn colors as we will begin a quilt along next Friday, the 7th.  There will be four posts for the quilt along, every Friday in October, (part mystery and part quilt along) and at the end you will have one or more items finished for decorating and tablescaping well before the season ends.  There will be prizes too! Other posts this month will feature crafting, sewing, stamping ideas and recipes with the fall season in mind.  There will be a couple of posts to celebrate Halloween, later in the month, and some of the projects will work for both holidays.


I am thrilled to announce the sponsors for this event, who have all donated wonderful prizes for readers to win. Returning sponsors Fat Quarter Shop, Connecting Threads, and Aurifil are participating for the quilt along, plus I welcome new sponsor (and North Carolina business) Backside Fabrics.

Aurifil will ship an Autumn Collection Thread set to a lucky reader!  Gorgeous colors.  I wish I could enter this drawing myself!

Fat Quarter shop and Backside Fabrics have pledged gift certificates so you can go shopping.  I already went shopping, LOL!!

AND there will be more prizes for crafting inspired posts later this month, including this Paisleys & Posies Bundle from Stampin Up!


All drawings will be based on comments on the post featuring each sponsor, and will remain open for the remainder of the month. Reveal of the winners will be November 4, with quilt along participant features.

Plus one lucky winner will get their Autumn Jubilee table topper size project quilted by me, batting included! If you want a head start on the project, gather scraps in Autumn colors and begin cutting 2-1/2 and 3-inch squares of those and a background or light background scraps.  You’ll need a few larger bits too, so save a few aside.  How many will be decided by you as you see the design and decide on how many projects you want to do and how big you want them to be.  I am going to give you instructions for the completion of three projects, each one can be finished in less than a week.  The winner will be chosen by random drawing from participants with the new Flickr group, Autumn Jubilee.  This is a public group, open to anyone wanting to participate, no invites or approvals needed.  Just join the group and upload your pictures as you make progress on the projects.  Only photos related to the quilt along are eligible for the drawing.

We are going to have fun and be all ready for Thanksgiving, with Autumn inspired projects.  There will be Halloween inspired projects and a tablescape later in the month too.  There will be a lot to do this month, and I invite you to follow me (if you aren’t already) by any method – email, Bloglovin, RSS readers – so you don’t miss a post.  This will be a month of fun and projects to celebrate Autumn, my favorite season.

Update! – Autumn Jubilee is underway, these posts are live with  more coming this month!
