Autumn Jubilee Quilt Along – Assembly – Part 4

Now that we have all the elements done, today will be the assembly of the quilt project. We’ll add the squares of accent fabric, and finish the borders today. Begin by sewing the leaves and 6-1/2-inch fall color squares into four sections. Two sections will have three leaves separated by 6-1/2-inch squares for a total of five blocks each. Two sections will have one leaf with two color blocks, one on each side of the leaf for a total of three blocks each. You may wish to lay out the top elements to be sure your leaf stems are oriented the way you want.

Arrange the sections around center nine patch unit as shown. Attach three-block sections to center. Note my leaf stems point to the corners on all four corners, and the others go around the center the same way.

Sew remaining units to the center. Sew rows together and press.

Using the scrappy 3-1/2 inch squares, make four borders. Two of the borders will have 10 squares each, and the other two will have 12 squares each.

Measure them to be sure they match your center section. Two of them should be 30-1/2 inches.

The other two should be 36-1/2-inches.

Sew the 10-unit borders to two opposite sides of the topper.

Then audition the remaining two 12 patch borders to be sure you don’t have the same print adjacent. Sew the borders to the topper.

Using your width of fabric strips, measure and cut final borders.

You can stop here for a table topper, or add more borders and scraps to make it larger.

Backside Fabrics sent me this stunning backing fabric to use in a project by Henry Glass called Splash. With the wide 108-inch size, I can get more than one project on here at once. Vibrant colors make this one bright and cheerfully Autumn.

North Carolina based, Backside Fabrics will send a lucky winner a gift certificate to their online store worth $50!!  See their high quality fabrics and bargain backs. Which one do you like best from their offerings?

Here’s your pdf for your sewing room – Autumn Jubilee Quilt Along Assembly. Next Friday, we’ll finish up with quilting and binding. I auditioned thread colors in anticipation for that step. The middle one worked well for both the top and this bright backing.

      I love this piece! Fall is my favorite season and I can hear the leaves crunching under my feet. I’m a huge fan of Backside Fabrics and their Nature’s Pace is speaking to me.

  1. Rheanna

    The Kansas troubles favorites beige caught my eye as Kansas Troubles is one of my favorite Moda lines.
    So excited to work on and finish the quilt. Hopeful that it will be done to put on my table for thanksgiving.

  2. Mary Stori

    This piece says everything you’d want to feel about fall……comforting snuggling time, time to gather round the table with friends, all in shades of color that forever remind us of fall.

  3. This autumn jubilee is beautiful Carole thanks for hosting and sharing your joy. As for backside quilting selection it would probably be the wide panel “ Have yourself a Merry Christmas” but they have a large selection available. It’s very Generous of their business to host this giveaway.

    I love the autumn colours in your table topper. At Backside Fabrics I am drawn to the Northcott and QT ombre backings. Such beautiful gradated colours!

  5. lee

    I love the My America wide quilt backing – I need a backing for a patriotic quilt I am making for my brother. Thank you for all the fun and thank you to your sponsors!

  6. Sew Hope and Friendship caught my eye, but it would be hard to choose. Some of the Stonehenge and the Kansas Troubles we beautiful, as well as a few of the florals, they look real!

  7. Diann@ Little Penguin Quilts

    Excited to get to this point with my Autumn Jubilee quilt! I’ve been playing with it a bit on the design wall already. I love wide backings, and the Flower Bed print on Backside Fabrics site would be a fun one to use!

  8. jrp53

    it is so hard to choose a favorite because I work hard to coordinate color and theme of the backing with the top. I gravitate to the tan Prairie Vine Vintage and to the World Globes because those look to be pretty neutral.

    Time to finish the little quilt. I can manage the 3-1/2″ pieces, but need to stop at the quilt shop for the border & accent square fabric. Lucky me, there’s a 25% off sale on autumn fabrics! Am I the only one, or has October also flown by for anyone else with all these activities?

    I love Backside Fabrics. I learned about them in AJ2020 and have shopped there since then. I have the same backing fabric they sent you! I used it for last year’s quilt & the new owner of that quilt likes it so much he can’t decide which side should be up. Today I’m in love with Steampunk, there’s something about gears that really appeals.

  10. Brenda @ Songbird Designs

    I love the Paisley in the Wind Icing by Tonga Batiks and the Plum Frolic!! Backside Fabrics is a great company and I enjoy shopping their site! Thanks, Carole!

  11. Connie Wolfe

    Every color offering in the Frozen Melodies Snowflake line caught my eye. I like your autumn table topper! Thanks for sharing the pattern.

    So many beautiful fabrics! My favorite was “my America” by Northcott. That would be perfect for a patriotic quilt I’m planning.

  13. I like Windham’s Steam Punk. I have a pattern for Jen Kingwell’s Steam Punk and this would be wonderful for the backing! This topper is really pretty. Thanks for this short QAL!

  14. Deb E

    The table topper is gorgeous! I love 106″ Dotty Spiral Extra Wide Tonga Batik Forest – it would be striking as a backing for an Australia quilt I’ve been planning on making….

  15. Joy B

    Oh, there are some pretty “wide backs” on that site. I think I’m most drawn to the Farmhouse Christmas toile in Navy/Cream by Kim Diehl. I love a toile backing on a quilt!

  16. yoyopattycakeshotmailcom

    So nice to find out about Backside Fabrics! I love flannel, so the Stonehenge wide flannel in tan looks wonderful!

  17. What wonderful colors, fabric prints and overall design for a stunning 021 Autumn Jubilee Quilt. And your background fabric is like a dream for this quilt. Absolutely perfect!

  18. Niki Barber

    Wow, what great backing fabrics. I really like the Pat Sloan Harmony Lake. There are so many, though, it’s hard to pick a favorite. Depends on the quilt, I guess.

  19. mary4g

    So many great wide backings to choose from, I think I have found my new go-to place for backing fabrics! I am intrigued with the Effervescence Ombre Charcoal by Dan Morris. Your layout for the quilt is wonderful, thank you for the great step by step and the sewing room copy. Thank you.

  20. I like the Splotch Dropcloth backing. You fall small quilt is perfect as I look out the window and see the oak, hickory, black gum and wild maple drop their leaves. That’s a benefit of living in the mountain forest. Definitely speaks FALL to me! Thanks for devoting you time and talent to Autumn Jubilee for us!

  21. Kathy E.

    I have ordered wide fabrics from Backside Fabrics in the past and was very happy with their variety and service! It’s great to have such a large assortment to choose from. One fabric that caught my eye today was Lutece Wide Quilt Back Purple. duchick at gmail dot com

  22. Melanie

    Venice in Teal is my pick, but they are all so beautiful. I guess it would depend on the quilt top I just finished and the colors/design I think works best with that quilt top. I am working on the Fall Jubilee project and have actually caught up after a late start! Yay. Fun, always.

  23. Mary D

    Great finish for this quilt! I prefer the Stonehenge collection for quilt backs & the color choice would depend on the quilt top colorway. Thanks for this terrific and easy quilt pattern.

  24. Juana Ibanez

    Stonehendge’s Stars and Stripes VIII – perfect for the patriotic quilt I’ve been working on for my son. Love Backside Fabrics website!

  25. Pam

    This shop has EVERYTHING! Thanks so much for introducing Backside fabrics. My current favorite is Chrysanthemum Toile bu the Original Morris and Co., and I like all the colorways of this. Thanks for Autumn Jubilee!

  26. Debbie Miller Meyer

    I really like the Kansas Troubles Favorite Wide Tan by Moda! I’m a Moda lover! The Christmas Toile was nice too!

  27. Pat Semeraro

    The speckled metallic by Ruby Star is gorgeous for a quilt back. All the colors are beautiful – I think the White Gold would be beautiful to have on a bed quilt.

  28. I love the Timeless Treasures Snazzy Flowers Batik. This Sunday afternoon has been a relaxing and fun time of finishing this lovely wallhanging flimsy. Thanks for doing this.

  29. Amy L

    Ooo, I love shopping at Backside Fabrics! I seem to order Windham or Henry Glass backs. This case is no exception. Henry Glass’ “Primitive” in autumn colors is perfect for a quilt top that I’m making at retreat next month.

  30. I usually dye my quilt backs but when I do buy one I always get them from Backside Fabrics. Such a wonderful store! The Venice Teal is spectacular. I might have to design a project for that one. Your table topper is lovely! Both of our football teams are not lovely. 😀
