Here we go!! Today I’ll give you the cutting instructions for the table topper quilt along. This year, I have been a bit short on time, so I didn’t do a full size quilt. However, the idea could be expanded if you choose to, and I’ll show you some ideas for doing that. If you missed Wednesday’s post on the start of the event, click on Autumn Jubilee Begins!
The quilt will finish at 40 inches square, large enough to use as whole table cloth for a small pub table or a center accent over a tablecoth for a larger table. It is a good size for a fall lullaby quilt, too. The center is a 12-inch finished block with round robin style borders. This isn’t a mystery this time, so here is the mockup I did in EQ8. I like this colorway with the deep burgundy borders.
The center is a 12-inch block, and feel free to change that for any 12-inch block that you like. I mocked up one with the 12 inch pumpkin from Autumn Jubilee a couple of years back.
I know we all have different colors we like, and different things in our stashes, so take a look at a few other ideas for colors to choose. Here’s one with light inner and outer borders, and gold patches.
Here’s one with a dark green for borders and gold patches.
And one last colorway, with gold for borders and brown patches.
So, choose your border colors, dig out your scraps, and let’s quilt! The cutting instructions are written for the center nine patch star. Download the pdf – Autumn Jubilee Quilt Along Cutting Instructions.
If you would like to do a larger project, make more leaves and add rows to the top and bottom for a throw size quilt. You can also add more sashing and another border of scraps to enlarge the quilt.
