Are you ready for some fun? Autumn is coming into pretty color this month, and I have been working on this year’s Autumn Jubilee for some time now. This year will see a fantastic line up of fabulous prizes from my favorite stores and products, some new this year! There will be a quilt along, a wool stitch along, sewing and crafting projects, tablescapes and decorating, so much to do this month. Projects are quick and easy enough to complete this month, ready for use this season.
Let me share with you the fabulous prizes that will be given away during this event. First up, Connecting Threads provided a fat quarter bundle of their Autumn Lane line for me to use with the quilt along, and they will send one to a lucky winner too! Just look at these gorgeous colors! The quilt design is called Stars On Autumn Lane, and there will be two options for placement, more on that later. (Psst – Autumn Lane Fat Quarter Samplers are on sale until 10/6 at 25% off, not an affiliate for CT).
Aurifil Threads is also sponsoring the quilt along, and you can enter to win this fabulous Chestnut thread collection of 12 large spools!! Plus, this prize is eligible to ship internationally, so anyone can win anywhere in the world. The quilt along begins October 6th, and will continue with weekly steps on Fridays through October.
Backside Fabrics is offering a $25 gift certificate for you to order their wonderful wide backing fabric for your quilt.
Fat Quarter Shop will award three $25 gift certificates, another international available prize! Full disclosure, all my Fat Quarter shop links are affiliate links, thank you for using them. Did you know that FQS also has wool yardage? See their six pages of wool fabrics, patterns and kits!
My favorite pair of scissors is Karen Kay Buckley’s Perfect Scissors with the microserrated edge that grabs fabric, and she is giving away a free pair for our wool stitch along – and you will get to choose the size you want! These scissors are wonderful for cutting wool and fabric, you don’t have to be a wool stitcher to win. The Fat Quarter Shop has the same ones as mine below, find them HERE. The wool stitch along will be three Sunday posts, beginning in a week.
Moda fabrics will award 2 prizes, first is a fat eighth bundle of Thistle Farm, and another lucky winner will get 2 layer cakes of Harvest Hill and Thistle Farm. I have a new sewing project for quick gifts and a head start on your holiday sewing. Both Fat Quarter Shop and Connecting Threads carry Moda Fabrics. Both Moda giveaways will be during the sew along, three weekly posts to construct a quick gift, perfect for holiday giving. The Sew Along begins on Monday, October 9.
Olfa is sponsoring a giveaway of their wonderful Splash Rotary cutters with their Endurance blade. This one is so much more comfortable to hold and use, I love mine. (Olfa Splash at Fat Quarter Shop). Don’t you love the new purple color?
We are going to make cards this month too! Halloween and Thanksgiving will be here before you know it, so look for two card making posts. And this year, I’ll be sponsoring the stamping post with two Stampin’ UP stamp set giveaways from my personal stock of brand new stamps. Make cards with Autumn Jubilee twice this month.
And more prizes!! Inspired LED Lighting is awarding 3 (yes three!!) LED Sewing Machine Lighting kits WITH the expansion kits to use on a second machine to three lucky winners!! I won one of these kits in a drawing and cannot tell you how pleased I am with the extra light right where I need it. (Note – this is not a machine I have, the pic is from Inspired LED)
And one more!! The Electric Quilt company is giving away a $25 gift certificate for any of their products. They have some wonderful things for those who do not have the software, along with great block design add-ons for those who do have EQ software. The Behind the Mouse blog is worth following, they often have giveaways of software packages, and interesting blogs to visit for free patterns.
Facebook users, yes I finally bit the bullet and created a Facebook page for the blog. It will add my posts to your news feed, if you would like to follow that way.
I have a group for the quilt along, sew along and stitch along too, so you can share your progress there. The Autumn Jubilee Flickr group is still active as well, if you like sharing that way.
Because I have so many prizes to give away, I have at least one or more for every single post in October, so let’s start now!! Enter using the Rafflecopter link below, you’ll have multiple ways to enter to win, the more you want to do the more entries you get. Today we will start out with a Fat Quarter Shop Gift Certificate AND an Inspired LED Sewing Machine Light Kit with Expansion for two lucky winners!! Entries will be open until Thursday October 5th, so enter now while you are thinking about it. FQS will ship internationally, the Inspired LED will be a USA winner.
Please note that comments during Autumn Jubilee usually explode, and I may not be able to answer each one personally as I usually do. I hope you understand, and keep commenting.
So, what do you think? Are you ready for Autumn Jubilee?
