I continue to work on my “Autumn Jubilee” placemats. The only time I work on them is when I go to a quilt bee once a month. Last week I had a “Material Girls” bee on Wednesday. My “Autumn Jubilee” tote of fabric is what I have been hauling to bees for months. I get a little more done each time. I’ve made a total of 4 since January of this year. I managed to get the binding on 2 out of 4 in the last week.
And the back of them –
It is going to be a rainy afternoon, and I think I will make some more binding for the last 2. That will give me 8, and I think that is where I will stop.
Since we are not going to be at “home” for Thanksgiving dinner this year, I can move along to other projects, and bore my friends to death with the final 4 placemats next year. Hey, 4 a year isn’t a bad track record! This pattern was part of https://frommycarolinahome.com/2016/10/07/autumn-jubilee-quilt-along/ From My Carolina Home’s blog in 2016. I did 3 table runners in the fall of 2016 and then got going with these placemats. You might look back at the post I did when I got the first 4 placemats finished in 2017 — https://stitchinggrandma.wordpress.com/2017/10/20/autumn-jubilee-circa-2016/
I am linking up to OH SCRAP – OH SCRAP! to share my scrappy Autumn Jubilee placemats.
Quick update on projects completed last week. Sewing for the grands – 2 dresses completed.
The first one below required a zipper, which I managed (thanks to YOU TUBE!). Pattern is BURDA 6309.
I might have mentioned before that zippers scared me in 7th grade Home Ec. This one went in successfully, and I attribute the success to my friends who offered advice and You Tube. This pattern was made in a size 5.
Since we were going to visit on Saturday, I decided once I had the zipper in the dress above to make another dress from the same fabrics. I made this one in a size 4. I used the same fabrics, but a very simple pattern.
It was fairly easy, except for those darn string ties, which took me a lot of time to turn. I started it after dinner, and worked on it until midnight. No zippers , no buttons.
That’s it for sewing for kids for a while. Back to quilting.
