Today we begin the quilt along for our Autumn Jubilee Quilt for 2020!! (#AutumnJubilee2020) I really like this design, and I hope you do too. This year, it will be a mystery, but each week will have a reveal. How can I do that, you ask? Read on!!
This year, the Autumn Jubilee Quilt Along is a Row Quilt! I have designed each row to use up scraps, and go together nicely. This week, we do the top and bottom rows, because I know you are excited and need a week’s worth of sewing. So dig out your 2-1/2-inch squares and make 10 sets of four patches.
Then using 3-inch squares, make 80 half Square Triangles. Fabric requirements are in the download below. See my post on Chain Piecing HSTs if you need detailed instructions.
Square your units up to 2-1/2-inches.
Assemble ten Four-Patch Stars in rows.
Press seams all in one direction.
Cut 8 spacing strips 2-1/2 x 8-1/2-inches.
Assemble two rows of five stars with four spacers per row. Rows One and Five done. Download the pdf for your sewing room – AJQA Week 1
The quilt along will post on Fridays for five weeks. For next week, we’ll do row 2, then row 3, then row 4, and in the fifth week, we’ll assemble the top and finish.
Today’s Giveaway is the Hobbs Tuscany Bundle of 3 Throw size battings! You’ll get your choice of fiber contents. Choose cotton, cotton wool blend, 100% Wool or Silk. Shipping in US only. We will have to limit this to continental US entrants due to international shipping delays and customs issues, and increased costs, associated with COVID.
