    All of the projects have been wonderful! I just wish I’d had time to work on one of them. However, I’ve saved the instructions and hopefully one of these days.

  2. Thank you so much for such a fun month of projects and posts! I loved it all! The prizes were terrific (Thankyou, sponsors!) and it has been so fun to see the sharing on Fb. Karla, your placemats are going to be darling—love that acorn! All the projects and looking forward to each post has made October fly by. Such a Great event! Thanks again!

  3. Cathy B.

    This was my first year, and while I come for the sewing / quilting I also enjoyed the other posts. The table topper is so cute and easy to scale up or down – like the optional layouts you provided. And great giveaways – thanks to your sponsors!

  4. Rosemaryflower

    I am going right over to flikr to look at the projects. I love these shared here. The blocks are adorable.
    Thank you for the Fat Quarter Shop win, I feel like I won the lottery WOW

    I did not have a chance to join in this year bc I spent my days making hexies (I donot know how I got to this place haha) and being with my daddy. I love the blocks though and made note of other’s ideas. Well done Carole, a great Autumn Jubilee

  5. Mary Durham

    Fall is by far my favorite time of the year. I thoroughly enjoyed all the posts and have saved some ideas for later when I have more time. Thanks for the effort on your part to put all this together!

  6. Carolyn

    I have enjoyed following your blog. I did not do the Autumn Jubilee because of a fractured hip, but I sewed two of your previous scrap quilt mysteries. I love seeing all your table settings. I also marvel that you have “storage” room for all your table settings, napkins/rings, glassware, centerpieces, etc. in between seasons! I do not make cards but have enjoyed seeing the process through your eyes. The cards are beautiful! I am also sewing some blocks for the local group gathering the blocks for the Carolina Hurricane Quilt Project. Thanks for all the hard work you do in making this blog informative and interesting, and in helping others who are in hard situations.

  7. Teri

    Even though Autumn didn’t seem to arrive early this year( ( in terms of the leaves changing colors), I’ve enjoyed watching it unfold on your blog in all of its splendor. Thank you and all the posters for sharing their beautiful work.

  8. Sharon Schipper

    I enjoyed vicariously joining in all the fun! Sept and Oct very stressful at work, end of FY, and I admit, I’ve only finished a few little hand projects… but love the pumpkin and autumn blocks, I need some other golds and browns and my stash will be ready for next autumn (hopefully I get to them in SUMMER!) thanks to all the sponsors, and to all the sharers, I appreciate it all

    Your creativity and your enthusiasm which is demonstrated by your sharing many photos and clear descriptions are impressive. Thanks so much for the Autumn Jubilee.
    Connie

  10. Sharon Ray

    I just love the colors of fall. Any pattern or project with pumpkins and leaves is a winner. Thank you for the fun projects and giveaways.

  11. Pam H

    The Autumn Jubilee was so enjoyable-colors, ideas and various projects for any quilter capability. Generous sponsor gifts are bonuses to getting inspired to create seasonal fun.

  12. Lynne Mulder

    The quilt project is adorable and if I ever get done with baby quilts I will be making it. Thanks again to you and Back Side Fabrics for the gift certificate. According to the tracking info my fabric should be arriving tomorrow!

  13. Sue H

    The Autumn Jubilee quilts are always spectacular but I especially enjoyed the wool pumpkin mat this year. Thank you for all you do this time of year!! I love Fall!

  14. Jan Snell

    Carole, I have enjoyed the whole month of blogging. Such a variety of ideas. You are so very creative. I love the pumpkin and star quilt and have just the right fabrics for it so I will plan to make that in the spring as I have been stretched this fall and couldn’t commit to starting another project. I do Christmas in July so fall in the spring makes sense to me. I loved the apple cake recipe. It was delish. I did get a Hallowe’en jack o lantern trick or treat bag made for my granddaughter. Thanks for the inspiration and for making everything look so easy. I am serving slow cooked ham for dinner on Saturday night. Thanks, Jan

  15. Thanks for all of your Autumn Jubilee posts and projects, Carole! I enjoyed sewing along, but also enjoyed baking up a loaf of your delicious pumpkin bread. It’s hard to believe it is the end of October already!

  16. Marianne Barta

    Thank You for all our posts. I am enjoying your site with all the wonderful projects — I just have to put most on my “to do” list. Love it.

  17. Hi Carole! What a great event and I really enjoyed the podcast. That fabric bundle just makes me think of you – the perfect colors for many of your projects. Thank you to your sponsors – so many great ones – and especially to you for getting them all together. Happy Halloween! ~smile~ Roseanne

  18. lv2bquilting2

    Carole, I have looked forward every day this month to your postings of beautiful projects, fabulous prizes and wish I wasn’t so bogged down with Christmas sewing to participate, but I did enjoy looking though all the projects done with luscious fall colors.

  19. Darci Marshall

    Huge thank you to the sponsors helping out with the Carolina Hurricane project. I’m a native wilmingtonian and know how much those quilts are going to mean for people who lost so much. I will definitely be supporting those sponsors’ businesses in the future.

  20. Gwynette in NW Arkansas

    Carole, I appreciate your commitment to providing instruction for fabulous crafts for fall decorating and contacting sponsors for prizes. I am excited about winning a new Olfa rotary cutter! Do you think it could be lime green….LOL!!! No matter the color, it will be well used. Congratulations to all the other winners!

  21. Ginger Michael

    Just discovered your blog after listening to Pat Sloan’s podcast. Cooking, gardening, reading and quilting…a lady after my own heart.

  22. Kathy E.

    The Autumn Jubilee offered so many awesome projects to feast my eyes on! I love seeing how sewists come up with their own versions. I’ve had sewing machine problems for a month and that has made me sad, but still loved to follow along!

  23. Sandy

    The Autumn Jubilee has been such fun! I made several of the leaves yesterday and have to say it’s a great pattern. Thanks for all the wonderful ideas.

    I just have to sew my three tipsy teacups together and I will be ready for Monday and the teacup challenge .

  24. Diane Pickthall

    Thank you and the great sponsors for such a fun and beautiful event. This is my first time to enjoy and it has been a joy. I love the pumpkin quilt and look forward to making it, I have the fabric out but life events got in the way of even getting started. Soon, I hope.

  25. Jean

    Carole, this has been a beautiful Autumn Jubilee, with many great sponsor gifts! Thank you all and Congratulations to the winners!
    -Jean💟

  26. I have really enjoyed following your blog. Being a new quilter, your blog is easy to understand and offers so much. I get excited every time I read it. Your sponsors are the greatest. Who wouldn’t love to win these amazing gifts. I hope that in time I can be a quilter at least half as good as you and your readers. thank you so much for bringing your blog to us.

  27. Mary C

    I like the variety of projects from quick to more involved. Thank you for helping me start and finish a project within the timeframe!

  28. Congratulations to all the winners and thank you to all of the generous sponsors. A big thank you to you for hosting this very fun Fall event. So many projects that not only inspired, but there was something for everyone.

  29. Barbara D.

    I have enjoyed your blogs, projects,posts, mystery quilt alongs. ( I had the idea of doing two full size quilts for the square dance quilt. I am still working on the nine patches for the second quilt! I did three full size quilts for the two-step quilt.) Thank you for your inspiration and your thoughtfulness and your generosity.

  30. Carole – a big Thank YOU to both you and your sponsors. I haven’t been able to make anything, but have downloaded the Quilt-Along & Placemat instructions. I’m heading to the Blue Ridge Mountain for a Retreat this weekend and hope to make a few things from your Autumn Jubilee. I appreciate all the work involved for you to create these projects and work with your Sponsors. I have enjoyed being introduced to the Sponsor’s products. Unlike many other bloggers, your Autumn Jubilee has so many various projects – something for everyone! Yours is one of my favorite blogs!!

  31. Thank you for another wonderful month of Autumn Jubilee fun. I plan on making the pumpkin and star quilt once life settles down a bit….I have been “on the road” 22 days this month so no sewing for me this October, only vicariously by reading your blog posts. Congratulations to all the lucky winners….you had a phenomenal group of sponsors (although I am extra partial to Aurifil…lol). You put so much effort and compassion into this blog…please know you ARE appreciated. Blessings from WV….

  32. Flora

    It was wonderful to see the different colour combinations for the pumpkins. I picked up some interesting tips from the table settings that will be helpful for Christmas decorating.

  33. Cathy Weatherford

    My best part was that I discovered your blog. Was so fun. And fall is my favorite time of year. So I loved it all. Thank you to all the sponsors.

  34. Wonderful inspiration and treats throughout this month, Carole! Thank you for sharing so much with us and for the awesome sponsors that made it even more fun! I really enjoyed the pumpkin patterns this year and some of the recipes too.

  35. Dian

    Autumn Jubilee had something for nearly everyone! From quilting to table settings to craft ideas, I was inspired to try some of your ideas in my home. Our fall weather in Wisconsin has settled into a sunny, cool time for residents to recoup from the widespread flooding that did so much damages to the rolling terrain of the beautiful driftless area near the Mississippi river. Thanks again for a most enjoyable blog-so well organized and interesting-I look for it every day.

  36. Donna W

    Thanks for all your work and sharing with us. Just love reading your blog with all of the beautiful pictures and fantastic ideas. The Autumn Jubilee quilt is gorgeous, and plan on making one.

  37. Carla Hundley

    Congrats to the winners! I have enjoyed seeing how your creations have come together and the designs. Thanks for the fun month. Happy Halloween! Carla from Utah

  38. Jane Barr

    Will certainly be making some placemats and table runner. Love the blocks Karla made for her placemats especially the sun flower
    Jane B

  39. Denise Wenzlaff

    What a fun and exciting jubilee celebration, especially for me winning a fantastic prize. Thanks so much to you and all the sponsors! :o)

  41. Krista Wells

    Although I didn’t take part in the quilt along this year, it was great following along and seeing everyone’s projects. Congrats to the winners!

  42. I appreciate the opportunity to participate in the giveaway! I love the Autumn Jubilee quilt pattern and how it can be adapted to make several different things. Happy fall, y’all!

  43. Debra Miller

    Another wonderful Autumn Jubilee for the books! Loved everything shared and all the chances to win great prizes from your marvelous sponsors.

  44. Thank you for showing my wool pocket. I enjoyed everything about this year’s Autumn Jubilee, especially the pumpkins and star quilt that I now have pieced and need to photograph. Thank you for another wonderful Jubilee.

  45. Amazing sponsors, Carole, you did a fantastic job all month long! My favorite….your recipes were wonderful,as were the table scapes, but I love that pumpkin and star combination best!

  46. Brenda Ackerman

    Hello Carole, I have enjoyed each and every project and post during Autumn Jubilee! Hopefully, over the next couple of weeks, I will be able to finish up. All of the prizes and winners were just that much more spectacular this year as this fun event keeps expanding on your great blog! I hope that you have a fantastic day!

  47. While reading this post, I was reminded of all of the previous posts. It is neat how somebody received a plant, another received books, and batting and sewing machine feet. Fantastic items! All of the blocks are wonderful!

  48. My favorite part is seeing all the fabulous projects done in my favorite colors. I love that everyone shares their creativity and quilty love. My dad has been back and forth to the drs a lot this season so I have not had a chance to make many of the blocks. I will catch up soon as I love these blocks and projects.

  49. Lisa Clark

    Your best Jubilee yet. So special enjoying this gorgeous time of year together with fabric, friendship and fun. All the vendors were extremely generous and varied. Thank you Carole for your lovely projects and fellowship.

  50. Nancy

    I liked your pumpkin quilt the best, and of course the giveaways were outstanding! Thanks for all the time and organizing, I know it was a lot of effort!

  51. Mary D

    I enjoyed the fall theme, especially the scrappy pumpkins! I enjoyed all your posts. Thank-you for providing the creative ideas, clear instructions and coordinating all those fabulous prizes. Thanks for posting my scrappy pumpkins, will post a pix when my table runner is finished.

  52. LINDA

    So many beautiful projects and prizes. Inspiration galore! A very upbeat blog. As a newcomer to the blog, I am encouraged with the inspiration gleaned and impressed by the many generous donors. Thank you for all the work you do behind the scenes.

  59. Elaine Nemeth

    So thrilled my friend Judy S won the batting.

    wool. Thanks.
    My last years quilt is on the wall and love it.
    Thanks for your great site.Happy safe holidays to you.

  60. sheryl harrison

    i love the autumn jubilee quilt. i enjoyed visiting web sites of your sponsors, some i were not familiar with. i was interested in the led lighting and the batting, both unfamiliar to me.

  61. Barbara Kinney

    I love all the seasons. Each one in Minnesota is so special and different. But Fall, now that is spectatular. I especially especially love the oranges, reds, yellows mixed with purple. Thanks for your projects and views of your home and yard. Now on to another season!

  62. Thank you for the jubilee and the wonderful projects you shared!
    My favourite is the treat bags you made for Safelight. Although I am not a stamper or card maker, I truly admire your efforts to support these women by giving them the encouragement to stay on a safe path!
    It’s inspiring that companies have donated prizes and we know it’s a lot of work for you to prepare the projects and organize all the prizes… and sooo fun for all of us!
    Thanks Carole!

  63. Joy H

    I’m so glad to have discovered your blog and your quilt patterns! I learned about some great products from your autumn jubilee that I want to try!

  64. Susan Stanton

    Since I love to quilt, my favorite part was the pumpkin and star quilt. It is just lovely and I really liked the quilting pattern that you used!

  65. Lynne Stucke

    Carole, it was all great! . . . but I especially enjoyed the quilt along. I absolutely love your pumpkin quilt! Thank you!

  66. Love the variation of blocks. I am making a variation of the pumpkins. But I especially loved your wool pumpkin. The added details of the beads were something extra that really made it.

  67. Pam

    I loved the variety of projects! I am a quilter and I don’t do any fancy cooking or gardening. But I’m looking forward to retirement and enjoying all of these things. Autumn Jubilee inspires me and reminds me of the joy that there is in any kind of making. Thank you!

  68. Lorene Sabina

    I especially love the photos of the trees that are around your property. And the view!
    My sister lives in North Carolina and she has a very similar view from her street.
    The quilting tutorials are wonderful too, as I am a quilter and need inspiration. I love receiving your emails here in Maine.

  69. Barbara Mazzone

    Danices pocket for flowers is very clever. Definitely something I’d like to whip up in between the other fabulous fall projects. Of course id have to make one for each of my adult children. Fun reading about all the new products and ideas.
