Autumn Jubilee Quilt Along Finish – Part 5 from From My Carolina Home

The weather took a decided turn to the colder side this week, truly Autumn is upon us. A rainy day yesterday had me working on quilting projects all day. On the blog today, we finish up today with quilting and binding. I hope you have enjoyed this quilt along. I have enjoyed seeing your projects on your own blogs and on Facebook so much, thanks for sharing. So, when we left off, we were beginning the quilting of the table topper. I chose an 80/20 blend batting for this one.

The pantograph is one I have used a lot ...

Autumn Jubilee in the Garden from From My Carolina Home

Autumn means the garden is winding down, and there is work to be done for a nice display next year as well as keeping the tender plants from harm over the winter. Some annuals can be safely over-wintered in a sheltered area, like our Carolina room. A few of the flowers were still blooming with the warm temperatures that have lasted well into October.

The geranium has one more gorgeous vivid pink bloom too.

For the biggest task, I decided on a day that the tomato garden was ready to be harvested for the last time and cleaned up. You ...

Autumn About Town Purse Sew Along Finish from From My Carolina Home

Today we finish up our Autumn About Town handbag. I am already getting comments from strangers as I carry this purse around town doing errands. I added a little lagniappe to it, and I’ll show you that at the end of the post. When we left off, the sides of the bag were done. Did you get this far stitching down the webbing handle?

Next, on the wrong side of the fabric, on the end with the pockets, fuse batting to the base following the manufacturer’s instructions. Repeat for second base unit in the same way.

Autumn Jubilee Cardmaking Fun from From My Carolina Home

I like making cards for friends and family and Autumn is the best time to send some cheer. It is no secret that my favorite holiday is Thanksgiving with the parade, a special breakfast, calling friends and family for cheerful wishes, the aroma of baking turkey and dressing, and a full day of football along with the anticipation of the holiday season beginning. Naturally, I have been sending Thanksgiving cards for years. It is fun to send a few just to say happy fall too. I begin with pulling out my tub of Autumn related stamps, some fall color papers ...

Autumn Jubilee Tablescape from From My Carolina Home

Because this is my favorite season of all, I have a lot of autumn inspired things to use in the kitchen and on the table. I adore these salad plates with the leaves, purchased some years ago when Pier 1 still had stores. The pumpkin bowls are also years old, and I get them out every fall for cereal in the mornings, and soup on chilly days. For this season, once again I challenge myself to create a new table using only what I already have. I wanted more color, so the burgundy tablecloth came out, topped with a little ...

Autumn Jubilee Finishing the Embroidery Project from From My Carolina Home

Today we finish the project we started with machine embroidery. If you don’t have an embroidery machine, you can always substitute a cute little fussy cut for the center to make this project. When we left off, we had the embroidery done and surrounded with either a border of a coordinating print or a patchwork of scrappy squares.

You’ll need to cut some additional fabric from your stash. Measure your top piece, and cut one backing piece and two lining pieces the same size.

Sew the front to the back starting at the top, going across the bottom ...

Autumn Jubilee Halloween Fun from From My Carolina Home

When we moved to our home in the mountains, we knew that there wouldn’t be any trick or treaters who would hike up here. So, for many years, Halloween was not a big deal. That is, until we joined the MINI club and began going to the annual costume party. Now, it is fun to do a little tablescape, make some pumpkin recipes and sew a table topper or a wall hanging or even a new costume. On this table, skulls and black webs bubble out of a black cauldron with happy pumpkins nestled in the leaves.

My Halloween ...

Did you get your wool applique done from part 1? When we left off, the motifs were stitched to the base. If you missed part 1 that has the pattern, click on Autumn Jubilee on the sidebar and go back a few posts.

Autumn About Town Sew Along Purse from From My Carolina Home

We need a sew along for Autumn Jubilee, and this year I was inspired by a sew day with friends. We were chatting about things to sew that everyone can use, so while they were here, I got out my graph paper and a pencil. I drew a quick sketch with dimensions, then an idea happened as it often does for something new and different. This handbag will have versatility, be unique in your choices of fabrics from your stash, and useful. Today we’ll get started, and then finish in two weeks.

For our excursions about town in the ...

Autumn Jubilee in the Kitchen from From My Carolina Home

Gathering around the table when there is a chill in the air brings family together. These crisp autumn days call for a pretty setting and good food to put on the plates. Fall produce is abundant now, with winter squashes coming into the stores and produce stands. This butternut squash recipe from the Cookish cookbook from Milk Street is a great way to showcase this wonderful vegetable.

The dish is a new and interesting flavor. First cut up the butternut squash, then roast until it is nicely browned.

Toss with the hoisin sauce ingredients and serve, yep just that easy ...

Autumn Jubilee Quilt Along Leaf Blocks from From My Carolina Home

Starting the sewing, let’s begin with the block that is the most work, and get easier as we go. We need 8 leaf blocks, so let’s do those this week. We’ve made these many times over the years of Autumn Jubilee, but this year they are smaller, just six inches finished. This time, the leaves will be totally scrappy. Start by pulling the elements you need from your cutting step.

Using the strips and 8 of the 3-inch background squares, make the stem unit. Cut the background square in half diagonally, and sew one long edge to ...

Autumn Jubilee Wool Stitch Along from From My Carolina Home

One thing in my hand sewing basket that I use a lot is my felt needle keeper. It was a party favor years ago at a quilt club Christmas party. It is getting a bit shabby, but is so useful, that I thought maybe it would be nice to make one in wool. So our Autumn Jubilee Wool stitch along will be a needle keeper, but you can use the motifs to do a little penny rug instead if you prefer. Start by cutting out the shapes from the pattern pdf below and matching them to the wool felt colors ...

Great Books for Autumn Jubilee from From My Carolina Home

When the weather cools off, and it gets cozy by a fireplace with crackling logs and a mug of hot chocolate (maybe with some Godiva liqueur!), a novel set in the fall is just perfect. I tried to find a few for you, good reading with an Autumn theme or an engrossing story for cold days next to a fire. Amazon links are provided if you’d like to read the publisher’s synopsis on the fiction section, and CT Publishing links provided for the new releases reviewed.

Harvest Season by Melanie Lageschulte. I love this series, and her second ...
