Autumn Jubilee 2020 Begins!!

Wow, it is the fifth year for Autumn Jubilee, and this is going to be the best yet! I never thought when I did this for the first time in 2016 that it would grow the way it has. But, I should have known that I am not the only one that loves Autumn!  Cooler temperatures, rich fall colors inside on quilts and tables, wearing favorite sweaters, and drives on the parkway to see the explosion of color in the trees are just a few of the delights of this season. This year, new vendors join favorite regular sponsors for a prize lineup that is the most exciting and biggest value ever!!  We’ll have a quilt along, sewing projects, a wool stitch along, gardening, cooking, tablescape and crafting projects, enough for a whole month.  Now, more than ever before, we need fun things to do at home, and I hope you find this year’s projects as enjoyable to make as I did to create.  Tell your friends to follow my blog so they can join the fun, too.

Previous year’s projects have included all the projects in the graphic and are still here on the blog. Autumn Jubilee projects remain up and free as long as this blog exists. To see previous year’s posts and projects, just click on the Autumn Jubilee category on the right sidebar.  Bake my Pumpkin Orange Bread recipe from 2016.

The Pumpkin Star Quilt was a quilt along over four weeks in 2018.

An Autumn Jubilee tablescape is set with my seasonal leaf dishes in 2018.

Some years have had a Halloween Tablescape and this 2018 post had downloadable pdf recipes too, it is October after all. I’ve done several with many of the same elements, used in different combinations.  One year I had lights in a black caldron for a spooky nighttime table.

Autumn in the Garden means planting bulbs and watching the wildlife, and this year will bring more ideas for your garden.

We’ve stamped some cards for Autumn greetings and Thanksgiving, and we’ll do more this year.

    Like Paula above, I too will be “enjoying?”another scorching day in Tucson. It’s hard to embrace the season, when we really don’t have one here. So, many thanks, Carole, for presenting such a lovely and colorful blog feature, as there is no cactus that changes needle colors this time of year😂!

  31. Liz

    I’ve fallen in love with the Pumpkin Star Quilt from 2018. That will be my next project. Mahalo for creating the Autumn Jubilee just for us!

  32. I’m fully in! This is the total autumn immersion I need during The Year Which Shall Be Unnamed. You have done a TON of work for this and have AMAZING sponsorship. Now I’m crossing my fingers for the Martingale fall patterns book, lol.

  33. Your Autumn Jubilee projects, hints and recipes are always AWESOME!!! It just wouldn’t be autumn without these posts. Thanks so much for all you’ve shared over the years. Something else that is awesome is the lineup of sponsors–they get better each year! I can hardly wait for the fun to begin! (I’ve gather my pumpkins and cushaws from the garden…getting ready for pumpkin tarts, pumpkin orange bread (hubby’s favorite) and my own pumpkin pancakes!)

  34. Becky Hill

    Can’t wait to try the Pumpkin Orange bread. We are finally getting some cooler weather so I am ready for some Fall baking.

  35. Mary D

    Thanks for putting together another Autumn Jubilee! I’m looking forward to making this years pattern. Happy Fall to everyone!

  36. Melanie

    I love AJ and can’t wait to begin some of the projects and try recipes. I have a fall top ready to quilt from last year’s AJ, so maybe this will give me the kick in the butt to get it done! Thanks, Carole. Wonderful prizes and lots of fun ahead.

  37. After reading Mary’s blog for the last couple years, she has inspired me to do table scapes on my dining tables. I decorate them according to the season. Thanks for the inspiration

  38. Sandy Cole

    Looking forward to a fun-filled Autumn! My guild worked with you on quilts for those so heavily affected by the hurricane several years ago and it was a wonderful experience.

  39. I am so ready to put those hot summer days behind me…autumn days here I come. I am new to your blog so am looking forward to my first Autumn Jubilee celebration…can’t wait.

  40. Thank you for sharing your beautiful cards. They reflect My joy when Autumn arrives. Looking to see if I ccan convert your Pumpkin Orange bread to Keto, it sounds SO good! Thank you.
