Autumn Jubilee Embroidery Sew Along

The Sew Along continues today with the addition of borders to our little project. This will use up more of our scraps, and give you an idea for a larger project as well.

I have no end to Autumn inspired fabric scraps, LOL!! It is just a matter of choosing a bunch, then cutting 2-1/2-inch squares.

You’ll need 40 squares, 2-1/2-inches square. Sew them in line sets as follows –
Two sets of 3 squares
Four sets of 5 squares
Two sets of 7 squares

Then arrange the square sets around your embroidered center, with the sets of three on the top and bottom, the sets of 5 surrounding those, and the sets of seven on the left and right.

Sew the 3-square sets to the top and bottom of the center embroidery.

Sew the 5-square units to the left and right sides.

Add the 5-square sets to the top and bottom.

Then add the 7-square sets to the left and right sides.

This completes our wall hanging top. It did occur to me that if you wanted a larger quilt, you could embroider several motifs and make the 12-1/2-inch top into blocks. It would use up a lot of scraps! Next week, we’ll quilt and finish it.

Today’s giveaway is sponsored by Hobbs Batting, Art Gallery Fabrics and me! One lucky winner will receive a Queen Size Hobbs Heirloom Premium batting, a Half Yard bundle of the Art Gallery Fabrics I used in my Quilts and More Fall 2022 published quilt design Autumn Elegance, and a set of Organ sewing needles with a spool of Sulky thread. I’m paying the shipping on this prize. So, I’d really like to see my local readers jump in on this one!!

    Love when a batting manufacturer like Hobbs offers a good variety. I think I would choose a premium 80/20 as I often decide to hand quilt. This choice allows for both hand and machine quilting.

    I love autumn and all its colours–until the seasonal winds and rain strip the leaves from the trees. I think the Art Gallery Color Master Elements collection is beautiful and I have always wanted to try the Hobbs Tuscany Silk batting. Organ needles are the best I have ever used too!

    I would like to try the Tuscany wool batting. I love the loft of wool and would like to see if the hand packing makes a difference.

  4. Joy Breedlove

    Those Art Gallery collections are all tempting, but I think my favorite would be the “Summering” bundle of the Pure Solids. Those blues and greens just call to me!

  5. Your embroidery finished with patchwork is a lot of fun! I love doing that with my embroidery designs. I’ve been using Hobbs 80/20 for several years and really like it, but would love to try a wool batting sometime. Thanks for the amazing giveaway, Carole!

  6. I hear such wonderful things about Hobbs battings. I’d love to try Heirloom cotton/poly, 100% cotton, or their 100% wool batting. From the Tuscany collection I’d like to try any of the 100% cotton or the 100% wool batting.
    Art Gallery Fabrics is new to me. I didn’t look at all the collections but I liked the Trinkets collections.

  7. Pat Semeraro

    The Aquarelle fabric group is so pretty – I love the navy mixed with bright pinks, etc. Stripes and florals together are so fun too.

  8. Nancy C

    Congratulations on your quilt publication! It is beautiful! I love the Heirloom® Premium 80/20 Cotton/Poly Blend. The Oh Woof and Soften the volume Collections are really unique,

    Hobbs batting is the best! It’s all I ever purchase and use in my projects. I’m never disappointed! I would love to try Hobbs Tuscany Silk Batting…sounds so luxurious!

    I used Polydown on my most recent quilt for my Granddaughter’s wedding gift and was pleased with the weight–not as heavy as cotton or 80/20.

  11. Donna F.

    I really like the Color Master bundles on the Art Gallery Fabrics website. Specifically would pick the Quite Peachy Edition bundle.

  12. Lisa England

    I looked at the Art Gallery fabric collections and there are a lot of gorgeous things! One of the collections that appealed to me is West Palm.

  13. Connie S Wolfe

    I was interested in the Hobbs Tuscany products particularly the Silk batting. Your embroidered piece is just right for the season. Thanks for sharing.

    I would like to work with the sweetheart collection from Art Gallery. I need to make a breast cancer quilt for a friend as she goes through chemo and those would work great. Your wall hanging is turning out sweet!

    Thank you for this project – it’s a great way to use up autumn-themed scraps. And those pumpkins are delightful. I’ve heard a lot about the benefits of wool batting, but I’ve never tried it, so I’d love to work with Hobbs Tuscany wool.

  16. Darci Marshall

    Love this! I don’t have an embroidery machine but I do cross stitch and this is a great use of a couple things I’ve embroidered and didn’t know how to finish!

    I’d love to try the 100%wool from hobbes batting or the gratitude collection from the art gallery, I really loved the fabric selection that was in all of the holiday collections on the art gallery website though!
