Autumn Jubilee 2017


Are you ready for some fun?  Autumn is coming into pretty color this month, and I have been working on this year’s Autumn Jubilee for some time now.  This year will see a fantastic line up of fabulous prizes from my favorite stores and products, some new this year!  There will be a quilt along, a wool stitch along, sewing and crafting projects, tablescapes and decorating, so much to do this month.  Projects are quick and easy enough to complete this month, ready for use this season.

Let me share with you the fabulous prizes that will be given away during this event.  First up, Connecting Threads provided a fat quarter bundle of their Autumn Lane line for me to use with the quilt along, and they will send one to a lucky winner too!  Just look at these gorgeous colors!  The quilt design is called Stars On Autumn Lane, and there will be two options for placement, more on that later.  (Psst – Autumn Lane Fat Quarter Samplers are on sale until 10/6 at 25% off, not an affiliate for CT).

Aurifil Threads is  also sponsoring the quilt along, and you can enter to win this fabulous Chestnut thread collection of 12 large spools!!  Plus, this prize is eligible to ship internationally, so anyone can win anywhere in the world.  The quilt along begins October 6th, and will continue with weekly steps on Fridays through October.

Backside Fabrics is offering a $25 gift certificate for you to order their wonderful wide backing fabric for your quilt.

Fat Quarter Shop will award three $25 gift certificates, another international available prize!  Full disclosure, all my Fat Quarter shop links are affiliate links, thank you for using them.  Did you know that FQS also has wool yardage?  See their six pages of wool fabrics, patterns and kits!

My favorite pair of scissors is Karen Kay Buckley’s Perfect Scissors with the microserrated edge that grabs fabric, and she is giving away a free pair for our wool stitch along – and you will get to choose the size you want!  These scissors are wonderful for cutting wool and fabric, you don’t have to be a wool stitcher to win.  The Fat Quarter Shop has the same ones as mine below, find them HERE.  The wool stitch along will be three Sunday posts, beginning in a week.

Moda fabrics will award 2 prizes, first is a fat eighth bundle of Thistle Farm, and another lucky winner will get 2 layer cakes of Harvest Hill and Thistle Farm.  I have a new sewing project for quick gifts and a head start on your holiday sewing.  Both Fat Quarter Shop and Connecting Threads carry Moda Fabrics.  Both Moda giveaways will be during the sew along, three weekly posts to construct a quick gift, perfect for holiday giving.  The Sew Along begins on Monday, October 9.


Olfa is sponsoring a giveaway of their wonderful Splash Rotary cutters with their Endurance blade.  This one is so much more comfortable to hold and use, I love mine.  (Olfa Splash at Fat Quarter Shop).  Don’t you love the new purple color?

We are going to make cards this month too!  Halloween and Thanksgiving will be here before you know it, so look for two card making posts.  And this year, I’ll be sponsoring the stamping post with two Stampin’ UP stamp set giveaways from my personal stock of brand new stamps.  Make cards with Autumn Jubilee twice this month.


And more prizes!!  Inspired LED Lighting is awarding 3 (yes three!!) LED Sewing Machine Lighting kits WITH the expansion kits to use on a second machine to three lucky winners!!  I won one of these kits in a drawing and cannot tell you how pleased I am with the extra light right where I need it. (Note – this is not a machine I have, the pic is from Inspired LED)

And one more!!  The Electric Quilt company is giving away a $25 gift certificate for any of their products.  They have some wonderful things for those who do not have the software, along with great block design add-ons for those who do have EQ software.  The Behind the Mouse blog is worth following, they often have giveaways of software packages, and interesting blogs to visit for free patterns.

Facebook users, yes I finally bit the bullet and created a Facebook page for the blog.  It will add my posts to your news feed, if you would like to follow that way.

From My Carolina Home on Facebook!

I have a group for the quilt along, sew along and stitch along too, so you can share your progress there.  The Autumn Jubilee Flickr group is still active as well, if you like sharing that way.

Because I have so many prizes to give away, I have at least one or more for every single post in October, so let’s start now!!  Enter using the Rafflecopter link below, you’ll have multiple ways to enter to win, the more you want to do the more entries you get.  Today we will start out with a Fat Quarter Shop Gift Certificate AND an Inspired LED Sewing Machine Light Kit with Expansion for two lucky winners!!  Entries will be open until Thursday October 5th, so enter now while you are thinking about it.  FQS will ship internationally, the Inspired LED will be a USA winner.

  41. Excited about Autumn Jubilee. I would love to win either fat quarter bundle or the aurifil thread collections!

  42. I participated last year and can’t wait to begin this year’s Autumn Jubilee! I’m l loving the fabric.

    The rafflecopter was confusing for me! I tried, but didn’t understand it!

  43. Carole, I have to tell you that I scored big after I bought the stampers from you. Someone on our local for sale facebook page was selling stampers, halloween, thanksgiving, Christmas and so much more 49 of them for $20! I couldn’t believe it! Can’t wait to make some cards during Autumn Jubilee!!

  44. I would love to win the Aurifil threads from Connecting Threads!

  51. Waiting to see what you have in store for us, what an amazing array of sponsors and great give-aways, you and they are very generous. The other day when I was looking for blues and greens, I did see some golden yellows, a few orange pieces, and rusty browns hidden there too.Maybe this will be their year to participate.

  52. Oh my, such wonderful selection of gifts. Any would be wonderful to win. I think I also just have to close my eyes and pick one, so I am going to say either the thread or the LED sewing machine lights.

  53. I’m a brand new follower and looking forward to seeing and hopefully be able to participate in everything going on this year!

  54. Thank you for all you do. Inspiring!

  55. Would love to win the lights!

  57. What a great October ahead! I would like to win the Aurafil Thread.

  58. I’d like the LED lights.

  59. Thank you for asking. I would love to win the Karen Kay Buckley scissors or any fabric. This looks like a fun Autumn Jubilee!

  60. It’s going to be an amazing month. I would love the lights.

  61. I am excited to see what’s coming next.

  62. This will be my first experience with your autumn jubilee and it looks like an amazing amount of creativity and fun! I am excited!

  63. I didn’t know that LED light kit existed! Going to get it no matter what – I’ve tried bending my Ott light every which way to get light where I need it, bought a stick-on round LED closet light that wasn’t quite the thing, etc. Some vision problems with my right eye plus plain old aging make it very hard sometimes to see properly and this looks like a fantastic aid! Heck – it all looks good – thread, rotary cutter, etc. – what’s not to love, LOL?!? Thanks for all your hard work rounding up the Jubilee!

  64. The LED light is a great idea! I may finally be able to see what I doing.

  65. I’m most interested in the LED sewing machine lighting kit. This all is amazing.

  66. So many great prizes! Thanks for putting this together!

  67. With only a few grapes and the apples left to put up for the winter, I am so very ready to start autumn sewing.

  68. This will be my first Autumn Jubilee. I am looking forward to it.

  69. I sure enjoyed your Autumn Jubilee series last year, so I’m sure it will be fun again this year! Looking forward to seeing what you will be making!

  71. Autumn Jubilee Bring It On! Thank you for putting together such a wonderful selection and variety of products for people to win.

  72. Sounds like fun! When does it start? xx

  73. Fun post. I love Fall. My favorite fat Quarter bundle would be Blue Carolina by Tatoo Quilter. Love those rich colors.

  74. So excited for the Autumn Jubilee! The LED sewing machine lighting kit would be my top pick from the many wonderful prizes you have.


  76. This is awesome! Thank you for the Autumn jubilee, Carole!

  77. Thanks! This looks like fun. The prize I most want to win is the Aurifil thread. I love it and use it all the time!

  78. I am torn between most wanting to win the Aurifil thread or the Karen Buckley scissors. I would be thrilled to be lucky enough to win any of the prizes.

  79. My, what glorious prizes this year for Jubilee! I am dreaming about the extra lighting as the days are getting shorter already! Thanks so much you busy, busy girl, can’t wait to see the woolie-goodness you have planned for us.

  80. A lovely way to celebrate the start of Autumn, wonderful and generous prizes.

  81. All of the prizes are absolutely awesome! My pick would be the sewing machine light kit. I am sewing in an area with very poor lighting and this would help out a lot. Thanks!

  82. I would love the thread. Thanks for the chance to win, although I know I would enjoy any of the prizes.

  83. I would like to win the fat quarter bundle from Connecting Threads!

  84. Another fabulous fall lineup! Thanks for all these wonderful things, and for not making it just one day, ’cause sometimes I’m late, as you well know! =) The Connecting Threads link took me to a page that said there was no product, but I searched around and found it. It wouldn’t let me put it in the cart, though, so they may be sold out. However, there are 10″ squares collections and 2.5″ strip collections on sale, too. I believe there are 24 in each and it’s less than $9 for each.

  85. I would love to win the thread! Lovely giveaway, thank you!

  86. What wonderful prizes, I would love to win any of them. How exciting.
