Autumn Jubilee 2019 Begins Today!

Autumn Jubilee is here!!  Get ready for a fun filled month of ideas and sew alongs with a fabulous line up of projects and prizes.  I have been sewing and crafting for several weeks now, getting all my ducks in a row for this event.  We’ll have a quilt along, a sew along, a wool stitch along, gardening, recipes, books, tablescape and crafting projects, enough for a whole month.  And this year I have lined up more prize giveaways than ever before!  Some of the links are affiliate links, thank you for using my links when you can.  Update – If you are finding this post after October 3rd, click on the blog title above to see all the posts so far for the month, then follow my blog so you won’t miss the next one!

Previous year’s Autumn Jubilees have been loads of fun, and those projects remain free on the blog forever.  Like this quilt along Pumpkin Star…

and these cards….

and this wool stitch along project all from 2018.

This tablet cover sew along is from 2017.

You can go back and see how to do a seasonal window valence from 2016.

Make the pumpkin and leaf runner from 2016…

and see how to use the same elements in a table topper and mini quilt.

We’ll make more projects this year including a quilt-along with a new runner design, stamp more cards, continue the Teacup Quilt Along, enjoy a new recipe, plant more bulbs in the garden and much more!  These quilts are Stars on Autumn Lane from 2017, the patterns are still available.  Just click on the Autumn Jubilee category on the sidebar to see previous year’s events.

This year, Autumn Jubilee has four Premier Sponsors offering prizes valued at $100 or more!!  Plus, everyone is eligible to win, anywhere in the world.  If the sponsor cannot ship overseas, and an international winner is drawn first, I’ll send a backup prize to that person from my stash of fabrics and books, and draw again.  Please thank these wonderful companies with your business this month.  All drawings will be open for 5 days.  Winners will be notified via email and have 48 hours to respond.

Returning Premier Sponsor Hobbs Batting will send one lucky winner four Tuscany throw size battings!  Get Hobbs at Amazon, and Fat Quarter Shop.

Returning Premier Sponsor Aurifil Threads will award a large spool box of their Festive Collection to one lucky winner.  Find Aurifil threads at Fat Quarter Shop, and Amazon.

Returning Premier Sponsor Fat Quarter Shop is giving away TWO gift certificates worth $50 each!!!  Check out Today’s Flash Sale too.

Returning Premier Sponsor, MadamSew will once again offer their spectacular 32-Piece Ultimate Presser Foot Set valued at $119.  It is on sale now for 50% off with free shipping if you just cannot wait!


New to Autumn Jubilee, but returning sponsor of our Safelight project, Impression Obsession is giving away a $25 gift certificate to their fabulous online store of acrylic and rubber stamps, dies and more.

New sponsor Primitive Homespuns Wool and Needleworks is on board with a $25 gift certificate, PLUS a bundle of wool fabrics!!  I have ordered from PHWool before, and their wool fabrics are just scrumptious.  More about that when we get to the stitch along.

New sponsor and new affiliate C&T Publishing is here with a giveaway of a $50 gift certificate for their online bookstore.  See the new fall catalog on their website including a wonderful new wool book publishing this month.

Returning sponsor Quilter’s Dream is sending a lucky winner a Queen size Dream Green batting.

Returning Sponsor Electric Quilt is back with a special 25% off code for a lucky winner to purchase anything they like, including EQ8!  The code will be good for one order of whatever size.  On EQ8, this is a value of $59!!

Returning sponsor (and friend Christine) North Carolina based Backside Fabrics will send a lucky winner a gift certificate to their online store worth $50!!

Returning sponsor Milk Street has a new cookbook called The New Rules publishing on October 15th, just in time for Autumn Jubilee!!  Someone will get a free copy!!

Moda sent a layer cake by one of my favorite designers, Holly Taylor, called Fresh Off the Vine.  This line was from last fall, see her newest collection called Winter Manor at Fat Quarter Shop!  I have the layer cake, and will mail it to the lucky international winner if one is drawn for another prize that has a limited geographic area.

Returning sponsor Costa Farms has come through with a perfect item for Autumn Jubilee, a Pumpkin Planter with a live Sansevieria plant.  This one is limited in geographic locations they can ship.  But again, if someone wins out of their shipping area, I’ll send you a Moda prize from my stash and draw again.

New sponsor Needle and Foot Fine Fabrics will offer a $25 Gift Certificate to their store. This one is going to be super fun as Bernie sent me some fabrics she will bundle, and I have a project to share with you using them.




Returning sponsor Inspired LED is giving away THREE lighting kits for your sewing machine, along with the extension kits!!  Who couldn’t use more lighting?  This one is limited to USA due to electrical differences, but if an international winner is chosen, I’ll send you something else and draw again.

So let’s get this event started with the first giveaway today!  Olfa will send a Splash Cutter in your choice of color along with an Endurance Blade to one lucky person.  I have two of these and love them!  Hurry, this drawing ends Saturday night at midnight.

I have 6 blocks made and think I will make a throw size quilt at some point. Thanks for all the fun!! You have done an amazing job with all the sponsors too.

    Always look forward to your fall projects, Carole! It is such a great time to transition from summer and look forward to spending more time in the sewing room and your Autumn Jubilee projects are just a perfect fit. Thanks so much!!

  17. I know the calendar says autumn and I know that it must be autumn since you have your fabulous Jubilee again, but the local temp outside still thinks its summer! I am so ready for crisp autumn days and I know I will get there at least in spirit with your wonderful inspiration! Thanks so much for your generous sharing.

  19. Hi Carole! Wowee – what a great group of sponsors. Thank you to all of them. I can’t believe it’s time for the Jubilee to begin already. I will be happy to add your button and do a post. I would like to play along as well, if the timing works out. Heck, I’d just like to make your Pumpkin Star quilt! It’s cute and I love the combination. I’ll wait for more details. ~smile~ Roseanne

  20. Yay! You know I love Autumn Jubilee! I enjoyed your recap of previous projects, and thinking about the ones I made. Your prizes are amazing, too. Thanks for all the work you go to for this, Carole!

    I enjoy your blog very much. I discovered it a couple of years ago and as I live in Scotland love to read about all the things you do and where you live. I enjoy Autumn here as we have sunny days and the colours are beautiful. I never used to decorate for Autumn but I do now and have used a couple of your patterns and am about to do some more. I don’t do Facebook or Twitter.

  23. Sheila

    This looks like so much fun, going to tell all my friends, even those who have never followed a blog before!

  24. Those pictures of the past events always inspire me 🙂 I love those pumpkins every year!
    I managed to use my old brain and get the button posted on my blog. Yay!
    Thank you for hosting such a fun, Fall event. It’s going to be fun.

  25. Donna W

    Looking forward to this year’s Autumn Jubilee. My wish list contains the 35″ x 70″ continuous grid rotary mat. Would work great in my new quilting room that my husband has made for me.

  26. Jayne P

    I just love this time of year. I want to say a big Thank You for all your hard work and to all your generous sponsors

  27. I found your website by chance recently, and have been enjoying the variety of projects and beautiful photos you feature. The Autumn Jubilee sounds like a great month of projects and I look forward to all the ideas.

  28. J.T. Haitsma

    Oooh, the suspense! I can’t wait to see what you thought up for us this year.
    Thank you, Carole!

  29. quilterpt

    I really like all the projects. The pumpkin star quilt from last year looks like it would be a fun project to start on for the fall!

  30. Another stunning Autumn Jubilee, so many goodies, your list of sponsors is amazing, and shows how wonderful the event is . We are in spring down here, but it feels like your Autumn, with snow in places, hail. cold winds and a few dark mornings.

  31. Anne Kirby

    Wow!! Missed the festivities last year but I’m psyched to join this year! Can’t wait to celebrate Autumn with everyone!!

  32. Constance P.

    After a year of illness that has kept me from my sewing machine, I was looking for something uplifting and motivating to help get me back into the swing of things. Your Autumn Jubilee looks like just the ticket! The projects sound fun and that there are prizes that may be won is just more icing on the cake. Thanks so much for putting this together. I am really looking forward to the fun.

  33. dezertsuz

    Hi, Carole! Thank you for another year of wonderful celebration of the cooling of the land! My favorite part each year is seeing what creative things you’ve designed. You never seem to run out of new ways to celebrate autumn/fall. Thanks in advance for what you’ve created this year. I know it will be great! I’ve shared the event on QuiltBOM blog. You’ll get a ping, I’m sure.

    1. dezertsuz

      Olfa prizes I’d love – 24 x 36 Navy Olfa mat – I think the darker color might be easier for my eyes. I also like the 12″ ruler that has so many angles marked on it. I think that could be great for drawing quilting lines.

  34. Nancy C

    wow! this looks fun! I am going to go to the side bar to check out the pumpkin pattern from last year and am looking forward to this years Autumn Jubilee

    1. Nancy C

      All the Olfa products are great! i haven’t bought a new cutter in quite a few years so that would be nice.

  35. Kathryn Laposata

    I love autumn and love to celebrate it with making something in your Autumn Jubilee. Thanks to you and your sponsors.

  36. Kathy E.

    What a fun, jam-packed month of great projects and new inspiration! I look forward to following along! Olfa has the best products and I’m interested in trying the Compass Circle Cutter…a very clever tool!

  37. farmquilter

    You are going to have a busy month and I’ll be looking for the emails from you letting me know your blog has posted!! What a fabulous group of sponsors you have – thank you to each and every one of them!! I placed an order with one of them today!!! I have so many Olfa products!! Maybe the folding 17 x 24 mat or the chenille cutter would be something fun to explore!!

  38. Jennie Cruzan

    Looking forward to Autumn Jubilee!! Thank you for all your work to make this possible. Can’t wait to start. Blessings Jennie

  39. Karen McMahon

    Fall is my favorite season and I would love to make a fall table runner. Seeing some of your past projects I may have mote to add to my To Make list! Thank you so much for sharing your talents.

  40. I am so happy I cam across your blog and follow you. Everything looks so great I am going through all my fall fabric now to see what I can make. Thanks.

    I love Autumn , the season and the colors–I especially like the pumpkin and leaf table runner! (I am just nearing the end of piecing your Scrap Dance Minuet pattern and it is turning out well.)
    Sounds like you have a very busy month ahead–Thanks so much for all your patterns and ideas!

  42. Nicole Sender

    What terrific projects! I hope to have time to join in and make some of the projects. I’d love to use the 6″x12″ Frosted Acrylic Ruler (QR-6X12)

  43. What a wonderful Giveaway and so many generous people/companies. I love Autumn, although I love all the seasons, but I think the change from Summer to Autumn is most noteable and it is great to make all those Fall projects. Thank you for sharing. I will blog about the Giveaway here Thank you for arranging this great Giveaway. Susie x
