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 ...

Fiction and Quilting Book Reviews from From My Carolina Home

This month was a mixed bag of really, really good, and really disappointing. I found two books that I enjoyed more than anything I have read in quite some time, both with a psychological aspect that made the stories fascinating and difficult to put down. So, let me begin with the not so great and work up to the must-reads. Then I’ll show you the some fun quilting books using precuts from C&T Publishing. Amazon links are provided for the fiction novels so you can read the story synopsis from the publisher.

A Tablescape for Two for Autumn Jubilee from From My Carolina Home

Tables for two have become the norm here this year, so for Autumn Jubilee (#AutumnJubilee2020), I have a festive fall tablescape for 2.  Without being able to have friends over, it is more important than ever that the table be a welcoming and seasonal place for a meal.  I try every year to use what I already have in new combinations, and I don’t think I’ve done this one before.  It begins with the placemats.  I made these before I began blogging.  I used a couple of yards of a lovely gold leaf printed on a plaid base ...

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 ...

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.
