Today we’ll finish the Tablet Cover, and have another Giveaway. I hope you are enjoying the projects for Autumn Jubilee! Share your progress and finished projects on the Facebook Autumn Jubilee Sharing group. You can also upload your photos to our Flickr group Autumn Jubilee.
Using the last two layer cakes, cut strips 2-1/4 to 2-1/2 inches wide, as is your preference for binding. I used two more prints in the same colors, sewing the strips end to end alternating the prints.
Fold in half lengthwise and press. Sew to the right side. I have a multi-part tutorial on Binding, to show exactly how to do the corners with tips on getting those perfect miters, joining the ends and finishing. Since we are using straight of grain binding this time, start with Part 2 Here.
Finish stitching the binding, either by hand or machine.
Press the completed piece to sharpen up the corners and crisp the quilting.
Add 4-inch velcro strips to the inside of the rounded end, and the outside of the opposite end about 1 inch from the end edge. Put the soft side on the rounded edge so it won’t scratch the tablet. Center both from the side edges. Top stitch in place.
Fold the base up from the bottom 10-1/2-inches, this should be right at the seam between the two blocks.
Stitch in the ditch of the binding.
Fold the top over and press the velcro together to hold it closed. All done!
Slip your tablet inside for easy carrying and to keep the screen safe and clean.
Wouldn’t this make a great gift for the holidays this year for your tablet lover?
The backside is just as nice as the front.
Suitable for guys too, DH likes his. Of course, fabric choices are key for the guys.

I love using precuts and layer cakes are my favorite!
I have used precuts but love fat quarters, I am now on a self imposed ban from buying anymore till I use some of them.
You are my ‘new cup of coffee’.

The tablet cover is adorable, am for certain making it for my tablet. I love precuts!
That really turned out well. I can see how easily it would be to make them personalized. I love the precuts as it makes fabric selection easy.
Precuts allow me so much flexibility in projects. I LOVE them. They also allow me to get at least a bit of each of the fabrics in a collection and they are perfectly coordinated. Thanks for the give away!
Oh, Christmas presents may be ahead …. just look for the sewing machine!! Love this.
I do like precuts, and have used all the different sizes for various projects! It’s always nice to have jelly roll strips that will work for binding! Thanks for the giveaway, Carole!
Oh yes, I use precuts regularly. There are times when I need full fabric pieces for backing of a quilt or something but I find that precut work great for intricate projects
I like using precuts, but have a monster stash I’m trying to use up, so haven’t bought any lately. It’s fun to see the projects you come up with and the tutorials are great. THanks!!!
I really have to make one of these! I do use pre-cuts-fat quarter bundles are what I look for – a little bit of everything! Thank you, Susan
I do love precuts especially.charm packs. They are great for choosing additional fabrics when you have to order online.
I love using precuts! I use charm packs, jelly rolls, and layer cakes mostly. Hubby thinks I just collect them but I really do use them.
In my quilting efforts in my short quilting career I have used precuts in all of my quilts.
I sometimes use pre-cuts and layer cakes are my favorite. When there is a fabric line I really love it’s a great way to get all the prints without breaking the bank.
Yes, I use precuts for lots of projects. I like a coordinated set of fabrics already picked out for me!
Oh, I just love this tablet cover. You did such a nice job with your tutorial, too. Thanks, so much! I love to use precuts most of the time maybe out of pure laziness. Or it might be all the coordinating fabrics! ~smile~ Roseanne
Tablet case is a great idea! I do buy precuts often and do use them, but think having to figure out storage containers for them means I need to stop hoarding!
I do love precuts and use them often. I really like the tablet cover. It’s a great gift idea, Thanks!
Lovely finish to the tablet cover. I have not used precut before.

Carole Great tutorial for a tablet cover. My book club exchanges Christmas gifts and I’ve earmarked your tute to make a gift, thanks!!!!
I love fabric precuts. The tablet tutorial is cute. ‘Need to make one for my sister 🙂
Yes I love to use precuts to jump start projects and to get a variety of prints in the same line of fabric. Thank you for doing Autumn Jubilee always a fun event to look forward to!
Hello Carole: I love using Pre-Cuts! Quite often though, I cut my own pre-cut 5 inch and 10 inch squares out of fabrics that are just under a Fat Quarter or a fabric that I am pretty sure I know will not get used in its larger size. With strips, they are just thrown into a bag and then when the bag is full….I will do something with them. This is a new saving technique, so I am not sure. Do you have any ideas? I do love your Tablet Tutorial, hopefully, I will be able to make one for a Christmas gift this year! Thank you for the time you put into the Autumn Jubilee and your Blog everyday! Have a great day Carole!
I love using precuts! This tablet case is great. Thanks for sharing it.
I love to use precuts. I like 2 1/2″ squares & jelly rolls the best.
Love to use precuts; I also love this project.. I’m planning on making one.
I love precuts. I’m a big fan of layer cakes!
You are very talented person! This tablet cover is amazing!
I need to make this for my kindle. So much stuff going on right now but I hope I can get back to it before Christmas! This is for me! I usually buy fat quarters by Am interested in trying the layer cakes soon. Great tutorial!
I use a lot of FQ’s, but I have also used the 5 inch squares.
I love to use a variety of precuts from Fat Quarters to layer cakes and charm packs. Your tablet cover turned out great. Thanks for sharing the great giveaway and the clear tutorial.
I’m in love with this job.
Hugs from Brazil!
I just found your blog and am blown away at the projects. So glad I found you!
At the moment I’m using moda precuts!
I really enjoy reading your blog and all the different things that you talk about!!
usually I use fat quarters as my main precuts
My favorite precuts are fat quarters.
I love precuts. I especially like charms and fq.
I use precuts – mostly fat quarters – but think the idea of charms and hexies and strips is great! Thanks for the chance.
I do like to use pre-cuts, particularly charm packs and mini charms. I love the versatility of these little packs.
Great idea for using left over units from a larger project. I really enjoy using precuts. It takes all the guess work out of fabric selection.
I love using precuts – they are a fantastic time saver! Thanks!
Super little project! And, no; I don’t use precuts.
I love your project and am probably going to borrow your idea. I love using precuts, and tend to collect them!!
I like to use charms and layer cake squares to add variety to my scrappy piecing
Sometimes I have a tough time breaking open a jelly roll. They are so neatly coiled with a bit of each fabric showing. So easy to use when I do open them!
I’ve used jelly rolls but not layer cakes or charms
I’ve used pre cuts on two different quilt that had a short turnaround time, and they were very helpful. I’m using left overs from one of those to do my version of the tablet cover.😄
I rarely use precuts other than fat quarters
It depends on the pattern whether I use precuts . If I want a wide variety of fabrics then that is the way to go. Otherwise I will cut my own strips or squares and use my stash.
Sometimes I use precuts; depends on my project really and also, if I want to use up my bin of scraps LOL
