Stars on Autumn Lane Assembly and Borders

Are you ready to assemble?  I know some of you have already done this, and I am enjoying seeing all your shares on the groups on Flickr and Facebook.  I will finish up with the quilting next week, I know it will be November, but we just need an extra post to get it all in.

For both designs, arrange blocks in an alternating pattern.  The borders on this one are simple, a pretty print or a textured solid first border.  Certainly you can add additional scrappy borders as you like.

If you have done the tesselating design, you may wish to do the first border with the points extending into the border.  This is fairly easy, just figure out how many points you need.  You’ll make flying geese for those, adding fabric strips to the ends to complete the border.  For the table topper you need four flying geese units.

So make the geese using two more HSTs per point needed.  Instructions and sizes in the pdf.

Note that the scrappy print is the exterior of the geese, and the geese section is background.

For the table topper, the strips are added on each side, exactly the same length.  For other sizes, I have included the formula for figuring out exactly what you’ll need.

Attach to the opposite sides first, then you’ll add 3-1/2 inches to the strip length to accommodate the first border width.

Attach the border pinning the points to be sure they line up nicely.  Cut the border to exact length prior to sewing.

Now put the other sides on, again pinning is key to getting them perfectly placed.  Here’s a pdf of the border instructions for the points – Stars on Autumn Lane Borders

Add more borders if you like.  Quilt as you like and bind as usual.  Next time I’ll show you how I quilted mine.

    I’m still working on trimming my HST – hoping to piece some blocks together this weekend. For the Rafflecopter giveaway…I am wishing for some Christmas jelly rolls to make a new Christmas tree skirt.

    Really enjoying your quilt. I would like to get a Moda Compositions Layer Cake basic Grey from Fat Quarter Shop

    Such a pretty pattern. Thank you Carole. I’m in the midst of finishing up a project then I hope to get busy with autumn jubilee quilt.

  4. Hi Carole,
    I know I have said this before, but I REALLY love the colors in this quilt. That, and the special border treatment – too cool and so neat-o! I’m going to Pin this for later. ~smile~ Roseanne

    Love the warm feeling of the colors in your quilt. On FQS I have been watching and wanting fabrics from the Zen Chic line Fragile.

  6. Eileen Maher

    Your quilt is a lovely fall project, reminds me of autumn Leaves!
    For my Christmas sewing I need some some holiday fabrics!

  7. Lisa Marie

    Wow, such a gorgeous quilt! I’ve been working on a fall quilt also, but really want to make one from your pattern. Thanks for sharing! As for what I would like from FQS, well, lots of things, but the thing I’m most interested in is fabric from the Fragile line by Zen Chic.

  8. Tools, precut, all of those would be a welcome gift from Fat Quarter Shop. I love your table topper, but I may not have enough fall colored stash, so it will likely become a Christmas table topper!

    Quilted my autumn quilt along in the Circle Lord board called clamshell. So I named the quilt, Moons over
    Quilt is gifted to my son’s travel partner and his wife’s for their 25 wedding anniversary.

    Thanks Carole for
    a wonderful quilt. Now onto the wool table topper.

    My wish from the Fat Quarter Shop would have to be Fabrics, Fabrics and more Fabrics! LOL. You know Carole with everything that is going on in my life right now, it just dawned on me…I could make a Table Runner! So, I will do that this weekend! Deanna and I picked out the neatest fabrics. LOL. I am getting close to having both of Dads quilt tops done. I hope you have a great day!

    What’s not to want from the Fat Quarter Shop. There is always some fabric that I want–right now I am collecting reds and neutrals with red in them. I have a scrappy quilt planned.

  12. nancyangerer

    There are really very few fabrics that I don’t like, but I think I would like to branch out from my stash and try something new.

  13. Margaret

    I am looking forward to seeing American Jane’s new fabrics –February, 2018, I think. Love your beautiful autumn quilt!

  14. Kristi

    I’ve been looking through fat quarter shop for special florals. I need some ‘girly’ fabric in my stash!

  15. Kristi

    Oh, I definitely love it with the border! I’m not sure how much ‘yardage’ I have for a one fabric border, I might have to make mine out of pieces. I made the tessalating version, so perhaps I could use a different fabric between the geese!

    I’d love to win the gift certificate and be able to visually fondle all the selections before choosing! This pattern is fantastic!!!!

  17. Debbie Miller Meyer

    I’m only on making the second block!! Life got me slowed up. Will send photos as soon as completed. Thanks again, Carole!!

  18. i’m getting so busy with everything that it is hard to pick one thing and stick with it. i’ve learned, around this time of year, that if i don’t stick with something until it is done then it won’t be done this year!

    I’ve finished my quilt and it’s on the machine. Just received the matching thread for the border so I’ll be finishing my quilt this weekend Yea!!!

    I’ve enjoyed seeing all the projects you’ve posted for the Autumn Festival – I passed on making a quilt this time as I have way too many other things on the go just now. I still have several autumn-themed table toppers from prior times awaiting quilting! Without a longarm machine, getting from tops to quilted items takes a LOT longer for me!
    I have just recently seen the new name for my problem, ‘shiny object syndrome’, where one jumps into too many new ideas at the same time!
