A Finish and a PHD Report

Today I'll share with you a quilt I finished a couple of days ago. Give me a couple minutes to tell you the story behind it. Each year in October, Autumn Jubilee begins. Who wouldn't love quilting with friends while celebrating one of the most beautiful times of the year? Autumn Jubilee is sweetly given to us by Carole @ From My Mountain Home. Over the course of this month, she'll offer her original projects freely which include a quilt of different sizes, wool applique, card stamping, recipes, you name it -- she's got it! So much fun to see what she's offering each year and I'm really looking forward to this year's group. Oh! And did I mention that there are prizes??? Haha! She has rounded up oodles of prizes from her sponsors and others. There's plenty to go around so you really ought to jump on board. Click the Autumn Jubilee 2022 button on my sidebar to see the rules and regulations. There really aren't that many and they're sensible but just need to be said. So hop on over but come right back here.

Last year's Autumn Jubilee 2021 quilt was offered, as always, in many sizes. I chose to do the wall hanging size 42" x 42". The pattern was thoroughly explained and wasn't too difficult to make. The fabrics were mostly bought at Rosemary's Quilts & Fabrics during her basement sale. I picked up a baggy full of Fall scraps for a couple bucks and the background fabric was clearanced out as well. So here we are -- Autumn Jubilee 2021 wall hanging.

Ta Da!

Such beautiful Autumn fabrics!

We all know that the quilt isn't finished
until it's labeled!

I encourage you to read all about Autumn Jubilee 2022 by clicking on the button on the sidebar. There's sure to be something of interest for you over the next few weeks!

Autumn Jubilee 2021 was on my PHD (Projects Half Done) list and I'm happy to say I FINALLY got to check another project off. Thank you, Gail @ Quilting Gail, for helping to keep us focused ... too bad I just started another couple of projects. The Letters to Santa QAL is being offered through Moda's website and I found it just too adorable (and challenging!) to pass up. The other project, Sweetheart Sorbet, has been added from a class I just took on October 1. It might be a good car ride project! So, to sum up my PHD, there was one finish, one new QAL project, and one class project. Man, oh, man! Here we go again. I just can't say NO!

A last look --

Have a great month. October looks to be wonderful!


  1. Your fall quilt looks great. Done just in time for fall 2022! Gail at the Cozy Quilter

  2. That's a great finish, and perfect timing for it, too, Susie! I really like your quilting on it. My Autumn (aka Halloween) Jubilee is on the table this month! So sorry I have been missing your posts lately - going to have to figure out a better way to follow you.
