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 Jubilee Sewing Project – Placemats from From My Carolina Home

Time for another sewing project, as Autumn Jubilee continues.  October is just slipping away too quickly!!  As promised, today I’ll show you the tutorial for the placemats from yesterday’s tablescape.  These are quick and easy to sew using chain piecing methods.  The finished size is 12-1/2 x 18-1/2 inches.

Bernie’s bundle will have some half yard pieces, and some fat quarters, and will be enough to do six placemats with this pattern.  You’ll need eighteen 5-3/4-inch print squares (six of each of the three colors) and seventy-two 3-3/8-inch white background squares.  The ...

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 ...

Autumn Jubilee Harvest Star Quilt Along – Block B from From My Carolina Home

Autumn Jubilee Quilt Along continues today with the second block.  Block B is simple, we’ll take two pieces of fabric and sew/cut, sew/cut until we have two quarter square triangle units.

Begin with two pieces of fabric, one in the black background, and the other in the center star print, both 13-1/2-inches square.  Or you can use a different print if you prefer.  The idea is that the quarter squares will tessellate with the star background, making a pointed background.  Start by marking two sewing lines on the lighter of the two fabrics, one quarter inch ...

Autumn Jubilee Cooking – Pumpkin Tart from From My Carolina Home

Nothing says Autumn has arrived more than the aroma of something with pumpkin baking in the oven.  When I found a recipe in my Milk Street cookbook that combined pumpkin with bourbon, I had to try it.  Those who know me in real life know that I love to cook with bourbon, and sometimes I put it in the food (LOL, I know, old joke!!).  There is an alternative for those who don’t do alcohol.  Today, with permission, I will share this great recipe for a lighter Pumpkin Tart from Milk Street.  This is a wonderful alternative to the ...

Autumn Jubilee Wool Stitch Along from From My Carolina Home

Did you get at least one end of your runner done?  Working on it during football games, I’ve been able to get the leaves stitched down, and begin the embellishments on one end.  Here is where we left off last week, with the shapes pinned in place.

I really love the Aurifil wool thread!! It embeds beautifully and make the stitches practically invisible!

Once you have the shapes stitched down, use matching colors of DMC floss to add the details such as the leaf veins and the pumpkin lines.  I pulled these colors to go with the wools I ...

Autumn in the Garden from From My Carolina Home

It is Autumn in the garden, with the temperatures finally cooling off a bit this week.  I’ve been looking forward to chilly mornings and cool afternoons, which will bring on the color in the trees.  Around the garden, some interesting things decided to bloom in October.  It has been so warm, that my iris got confused, and waited to bloom until just last week.

I adore this white bloom, and it gave me two more before it was done.  A misty morning created droplets of water on the petals.

Autumn Jubilee Crafting – Hogwarts Textbooks from From My Carolina Home

Our first crafting project of the Autumn Jubilee event is a fun one.   With Halloween coming up, I’ve been working on a plan for costumes for us.  We have a really fun Halloween party to attend at the end of the month with our Mini Cooper Club, and the costumes last year were spectacular, which means we needed to up our game a bit for this year.  We decided to do Hogwarts professors, as we have much of what would be needed to pull it off, needing just a Snape wig for My Sweet Babboo, and couple of other ...

Autumn Jubilee Wool Stitch Along from From My Carolina Home

The Wool Stitch Along begins today, with an original pattern and a fabulous giveaway!!  We’ve done some little penny rugs in the past, and last year did a fun mini wall hanging.  This year we go bigger, with a table runner.

You know that I only recommend what I use, and I am really impressed with the wool fabrics I purchased from Primitive Homespuns (not an affiliate). The wool is tightly compacted, and there is no need to ‘felt’ it before stitching.  It is just heavenly to work with.  One of the things I love about these luscious wool ...
