Autumn Jubilee Wrap Up

I hope you had fun with Autumn Jubilee 2021!! We certainly got a lot done this month, all with a fall theme to carry you through to Thanksgiving. Be sure to read the sponsor list today, as there area some goodies for everyone there. Our amazing sponsors appreciate the visits and the purchases if you were moved to take advantage of the special sales and deals right now. I had fun too, but it was a bit of a challenge to stay ahead to keep the multipart “alongs” on the schedule!!

Did you like this year’s Autumn Jubilee Quilt Along? I hope the design inspired you to sew.

We made a fun handbag for fall…

sewed a wool needle case for handwork…

made treat bags for Halloween fun …

and Thanksgiving gifts or home decor.

We cleaned up the garden and planted bulbs, moving tender plants inside and harvesting the last of the tomato crop.

Then we roasted tomatoes and made a roasted tomato/garlic/fresh basil compote for use in recipes later.

We saved seeds from tomatoes and squash.

We set an Autumn inspired table.

We stamped some cards for friends and neighbors.

We even had some time to curl up with a good book after a long day of sewing, stitching, stamping and cooking.

This year, Autumn Jubilee had three Premier Sponsors offering prizes valued at $100 or more!! Thank you for using my affiliate links when you can as they help me pay for the costs of maintaining the blog, supplies for projects, and shipping of prizes so I can bring you more free projects and ideas for fun.

    This Autumn Jubilee has been a treat! You did a terrific job of coordinating the wide variety of fall fun. Thanks so much for all of your hard work. I haven’t gotten to my embroidery machine, but I am confident that the Sulky package will be put to good use in the upcoming months.

  10. Hi Carole, thank you for the opportunity to enter drawings sponsored by so many wonderful vendors. I was a lucky winner of a $50 gift certificate at Fat Quarter Shop.

See you next year!

    I knew I wouldn’t have time to keep up with anything this month so didn’t stay up on your blog this month but it looks like everyone was kept very busy and that you all had a good time although I bet you are exhausted!

  12. Diane

    I excited to get started on the Autumn Jubilee. I’m going to a quilt retreat next weekend and that’s the project I’m going to work on. Can’t wait!!

  13. Carole, you did a fabulous job with Autumn Jubilee, AGAIN! I am sorry that I couldn’t participate as much as in past years, but I enjoyed reading your posts, and seeing the different projects. You work so hard at this, and it was another smashing success!

  15. Diann@ Little Penguin Quilts

    I definitely enjoyed Autumn Jubilee this year, especially the quilt along – I love my Halloween version! Just need to quilt it. We are still enjoying our Pumpkin Orange bread, too. The only thing I haven’t gotten to is the tote bag, but there’s still time for that. Thanks for all you do to coordinate AJ, Carole! You are amazing!

  16. Sue Hoover

    My thank you to all the sponsors. The entire Autumn Jubilee was so much fun. I’m just sorry I was out of town for 3 weeks of the month and couldn’t participate 100% but I did save some of the project directions to do later. Thank you so much for all you do for Autumn Jubilee, Carole. It wouldn’t have happened without your efforts.

  17. Brenda @ Songbird Designs

    I’ve enjoyed seeing all the posts and appreciate all the hard work you put into getting the prizes set up, Carole! Another successful Autumn Jubilee!!

  18. Enjoyed your Autumn Jubilee posts. All so inspiring and looking forward to trying some. Your Blog is something I look forward to every week. Thank you for sharing your creativity.

  19. Thank you, Carole, for all the wonderful projects and the time you put into this. You always put on such a nice presentation of various crafts. Thanks also, to all the generous sponsors. With travels and guests this year, I was not able to participate in much, but have saved projects to work on later.

  20. Colette

    While I didn’t have a chance to sew, I did enjoy all the posts. I also grabbed one of the book recommendations which was awesome! I read First Frost.

  21. Niki Barber

    Thanks to all the sponsors for their support. I saw several websites that I had not previously visited. And thanks, Carole, for your hard work in developing the great projects and keeping everything so well organized

  22. I think you will look back at your Autumn Jubilee someday and say “How did I do all that?” Appreciate the energy and perseverance it takes to make and explain your many beautiful projects. I especially appreciated part 5 of the table topper where you take us through the finish…so much better than “quilt as desired.” I also appreciated learning about the Dream Wool-Cotton, the Milk Street Vegetable cookbook and other products featured by your sponsor. THANK YOU Carole!

  23. Bobbie Woodruff

    What a fun, quilt along. Thank you for all your time and effort you put in. Your table looks beautiful.
    Congratulations to everyone who will win a great gift. Sure would be a nice surprise.
    I loved all the things you put together for us!


    Carole: Where do I find Part 1 for the hand bag. I must have slept thru some of your e-mails. Sorry. The Halloween bags were cute.

  25. The Jubilee was such fun! Even though I don’t quilt or sew, I learned a lot just reading your posts — and they were fabulous eye candy! The recipes, table, everything — fabulous! Thanks, Carole. I know that took a lot of work. And thanks to your sponsors, too.
