Autumn Jubilee Wool Stitch Along – Finishing the Pillow from From My Carolina Home

Before we get started today, please review the Autumn Jubilee Rules and Notices for the entering the drawings for #AutumnJubilee2020. I have already had two disqualifications for different reasons, and I really don’t want to leave anyone out.  Now, let’s finish the pillow on our Wool Stitch Along.  When we left off, the appliques were stitched, and the veins were stitched.  This week we’ll embellish a bit and finish the project.

When the stitching is done, I like to press the piece to make sure all the handwork is laying flat before adding beads and buttons.

Autumn Jubilee Pillowcase Project from From My Carolina Home

I have made pillowcases a few times on the blog, using different techniques and patterns.  I’ve shown you the burrito (or rolled, or hot dog) method, and a quick serger method.  Some have had pockets, and my favorite Travel Pillow Case has handles too.  For Autumn Jubilee (#AutumnJubilee2020), I thought it would be a quick and fun project to add some fall color to your bedrooms and guest rooms, and show yet one more way to do a pillowcase project.

Begin with the selection of some pretty fabrics, you’ll need the main fabric print and two accent fabrics ...

Embroidery Wall Hanging from From My Carolina Home

For those of you with embroidery machines, do you sometimes find it hard to decide where to use some of those wonderful designs?  My embroidery machine is 20 years old, but still going strong, but I haven’t used it as much recently.  So, I thought, maybe we could do something fun for Autumn Jubilee (#AutumnJubilee2020) using embroidery. For this project, you will stitch out designs on your machine, and I’ll walk you through a technique, not a pattern as such because everyone will have different designs and different sizes.

I have many software cards with designs, and one ...

Autumn Jubilee Cookish from From My Carolina Home

We are cooking today for #AutumnJubilee2020 with a wonderful Oriental inspired recipe that goes together easily and fast.  The whole idea behind Cookish, the new cookbook from Milk Street, is simple ingredients that are just thrown together.


From the publisher – “These recipes, most with six or fewer ingredients (other than oil, salt, and pepper), make it easy to be a great cook — the kind who can walk into a kitchen and throw together dinner in no time. In each of these recipes, big flavors and simple techniques transform pantry staples, common proteins, or centerpiece vegetables into a delicious meal. And ...

It’s week 2 of our Autumn Jubilee Quilt Along (#AutumnJubilee2020), and the second row of the row quilt will surprise you!  For those who were on my Facebook live event earlier in September, you got a hint of a fabric to have in your stash for the quilt along.  This is the week we will use that tiny leaves print I told you about. I have put two fabric  ideas (affiliate links) on my sidebar that would work well if you don’t have anything in your stash for this row.

The row for today is a line of ...

Stamping Fun for Autumn Jubilee from From My Carolina Home

Autumn is my favorite time of year, and I like to send cards to celebrate the season.  I have sent Thanksgiving cards for years and they are always eagerly anticipated by my family who live out of state.  So let’s stamp some cards today for #AutumnJubilee2020!

Ever since I discovered Impression Obsession, I have loved the sentiments and motifs they offer.  I like that you have the option of how your stamps are mounted, so I can save money using my acrylic blocks, plus they take up less space than the wood mounts.  Wood mounts are still available for ...

Autumn Jubilee 2020 Begins!! from From My Carolina Home

Wow, it is the fifth year for Autumn Jubilee, and this is going to be the best yet! I never thought when I did this for the first time in 2016 that it would grow the way it has. But, I should have known that I am not the only one that loves Autumn!  Cooler temperatures, rich fall colors inside on quilts and tables, wearing favorite sweaters, and drives on the parkway to see the explosion of color in the trees are just a few of the delights of this season. This year, new vendors join favorite regular sponsors for ...

fall finish from Making A Lather

I rarely manage to finish a topical quilt in time for any season. This year, I have finished patriotic quilts in time for July 4th, and, now, a fall quilt in time for fall. I must admit, that when I decide which quilts, in my personal blacklog, I am going to quilt, I start with the smallest or the easiest.

I started this one in November 2018 as a mystery quilt at my carolina home. Carole from from My Carolina home offered a quilt along mystery called autumn jubilee.  I worked on it  here and here


I used a flannel ...

Autumn Jubilee – One More Day of Fun from From My Carolina Home

Today is the last day of Autumn Jubilee, and I still haven’t been able to show all the things in my head. Plus, there are some great deals and specials going with the Autumn Jubilee sponsors, check out the list at the bottom.  Halloween is tomorrow, so I have just enough time to show you a Halloween tablescape to cap off this month long event.   Starting with the centerpiece, this little ceramic jack-0-lantern is really special to me.  My mother and I both had one.  We got them while shopping at a special store all decked out for fall ...

Autumn Jubilee Fabric Crafting – Recovering a Lamp Shade from From My Carolina Home

Autumn Jubilee has to include some crafting time, and this one will use fabric.  I found this little lamp at a thrift store (naturally, LOL!!), and it was the size I wanted for the den.  I needed a small lamp to provide some low light for the room when we are watching movies.  My Sweet Babboo likes to turn off the lights and have a home theater effect, but having all the lights off is actually too dark and creates a bit of eye strain looking at the TV.  So, a small light is nice.  I had a really small ...

Autumn Jubilee Stamping Fun from From My Carolina Home

One of the things I really enjoy is making and sending cards for the Autumn season, and particularly Thanksgiving.  Friends and family love getting them.  With a love of pumpkins and all things Autumn, this is a great time to stamp and play with paper.  I have a couple of stamp sets that are perfect for Autumn cards, plus adding some stickers is a fun way to dress up and add marvelous detail to designs.

For this simple card, I stamped the sentiment in the lower right from the set So Very Thankful, added a ribbon above and a cute ...

Autumn Jubilee Harvest Star Quilt Along Finishing from From My Carolina Home

Today we finish up the quilt along table runner, and I’ll show you some more ideas for making full quilts from the blocks.  We left off last week here, with two quarter-square triangle blocks, one on each side of the Tri Recs Star block.

For the Harvest Star runner, I added only one border 2-1/2-inches wide.  Quilt as desired.  I used a leaf pantograph to blend with the Harvest theme.  The project is small enough to quilt on a domestic machine.  Stitch in the ditch and free motion quilting are just a couple of ideas.

When quilting is ...

Autumn Jubilee – Kitchen Wreath from From My Carolina Home

Autumn Jubilee continues today with a project featuring a new idea for your jelly roll strip leftovers.  We’ll make an Autumn Kitchen Wreath!  Of course, you could use Christmas fabric jelly roll strips for a Christmas theme wreath, or really any color scheme you like.  Use your kitchen colors for an everyday addition to your decor.  I got the idea for this when I found several of these straw wreaths at the thrift store.  Normally, I don’t like to use these as they drop bits of straw all over the place.  But, with a bit of crafting, they ...

Autumn on the Blue Ridge Tablescape from From My Carolina Home

Nothing is more beautiful than Autumn in the Blue Ridge mountains.  We are so lucky to live here, and the explosion of color in the trees is wonderful, even in a year that has been too warm for too long.  Finally, we are seeing some of the Autumn glory, now that the temperatures are getting cooler at night.  It is the ideal time to showcase a pretty table of Autumn leaves. Now, here is the fun surprise, another free pattern to come! Bernie from Needle and Foot sent me some fabrics she will have in a bundle, and I have ...
