Slow Sunday Stitching – Autumn Jubilee

Greetings from South Texas where a cool front came in during the night – Sure – it is 82 degrees – whoops let me get a jacket (I keep the A/C on about 72) LOL!  We shall see how the week goes.  But my walk this morning was great!  I am keeping my stress level down by focusing on walking and doing my Vitamin D lamp morning and evening.  My bloodwork indicates that my immune system is really running on fumes, so I will make sure that I do all things first to improve that and then working on my projects.

Today I have completed the Star Blocks for Row One of Autumn Jubilee .  It is not a hand stitching project, but a slow sewing one.  When I make blocks like this I pin each section together to make sure that all points match and that I have close to or at least 1/4″ on the outside!  Yes it takes me longer to make a block like this, but being the Type A Perfectionist I am, I accept the slow going versus having to have a date with Jack the Ripper!  Believe you me Jack and I have been best friends for a long time!   I am enjoying working on this quilt, it is easy, yet challenging to make all points match!

This is the finished quilt from My Carolina Home . 

I am thinking (do I still have a brain?) that I will make the tree blocks smaller so I can have 4 trees.  As I study the quilt and looking at the leaves and pumpkins they are large and if I make the trees too small (like making 5) it will throw the effect of the middle blocks off.  I thought about doubling the number of blocks to make a larger quilt, but thinking (do I still have a brain?) that I may not do that and add more borders.  Ah creativity – maybe I am finding it again!

I do have another project waiting in the wings – it is going to have a Panel in the middle.  I had 3 panels and only needed one of the panels so I shared and sent one to Lori and one to Gretchen. It will be interesting to see how we each make a quilt from the panel.

I purchased fabrics that go with this line also.

Of course I had forgotten about the fabrics when I started on Autumn Jubliee, so these will make a pretty quilt that match the panel.  Any fabrics I purchased this year have really been forgotten maybe I had better re-visit the other fabric room in the house more often – along with the ones in the Studio and week my brain (if I still have one!).

Have a great week – and enjoy sewing.

    • Thank you Susan! Hope all is well with you. I will have fun with the panel top! Have another one for a Reproduction quilt, although it may be cut up using a Di Ford pattern where she used the same fabrics. Have a great week! Hugs


  1. I had been following along with Autumn Jubilee although I did do one. I love your blocks. I love the panel too and I am excited to see what you do with it. I know it will be fabulous!


    • Hi Sharon – love you needle work project it is coming along great! I am ready to do the leaves, or finish up with the Stars, then only the other 3 block types left! I like her border, but think I may add more scrappy borders! Hugs. Have a great week.


  2. I love your stars, so pretty! Those fabrics you bought are very pretty, they’re going to match the panel very nicely. Look for my panel reveal Thanksgiving weekend. Happy stitching!


    • Thank you Gretchen, this is the 2 or 3 bundles that I purchased not realizing there was a panel in each one. They are the same fabrics that are in the Turkey! I am anxious to see your quilt – bet it will be striking! Hugs, and Have a great week.


    • Well, it would be easier to follow her pattern – LOL! It was around 45 this morning when I walked, I am still in T-Shirt weather as it will warm up! I am sure your temp’s are colder.
      Are you back to your quilting yet? Hugs
