Autumn Glow Quilt-Along

Wednesday, August 4, 2021

Hi friends!  Hopefully, you got word about the exciting news -
I'll be hosting TWO new quilt-alongs soon!   
This is the homepage for the first one, Autumn Glow.  
There is lots of information here so be sure to read till the end of this post!  
Click HERE for the homepage for the other quilt-along, Golden.

Here's a picture of my original Autumn Glow quilt using Tilda fabrics:

Autumn Glow finishes at 66 1/2" x 66 1/2" and is suitable for confident beginners.

The materials needed are:
8 bright print fat quarters for the leaves
3⅝ yards white dot fabric for the background
⅝ yard yellow floral fabric for the star
4⅛ yards fabric for the backing
⅝ yard fabric for the binding
72" x 72" piece of batting

I'm going to do a "solids" version this time around.  I bought these fabrics
over a year ago (unfortunately I don't have the color info; sorry!)  I haven't worked with
just solids very often in the past so I'm not an expert.  I hope this turns out pretty!?!

The schedule for the Autumn Glow Quilt-Along is:
Week 1 (August 23rd): Cutting and make 4 Leaf Blocks
Week 2 (August 30th): Make 4 Leaf Blocks
Week 3 (September 6th): Make 4 Leaf Blocks
Week 4 (September 13th): Make 4 Leaf Blocks
Week 5 (September 20th): Make Star Triangle Units
Week 6 (September 27th): Assemble quilt top
October 4th: Show finished quilt top

This will be a simple quilt-along.  No sign-ups, weekly emails, or blog posts.  
Just print out the schedule and follow along with me on Instagram @gigis_thimble.
Plan on an Instagram post about the QAL every Monday morning.

And finally, it wouldn't be a quilt-along without a prize, right!?!
Sweet April Young offered to donate this bundle of 12 beautiful fat quarters of
Lilliput by Sharon Holland for Art Gallery Fabrics.  I'm obsessed and so 
grateful to April for her generosity!

Be sure to follow April on Instagram at @aprilgracequilts_shop.
I'll have everyone post a picture of their finished quilt top on October 4th.
I'll pick a winner a few days later and announce it on Instagram. 

Please use the hashtags #gigisthimblepattern and #autumnglowqal
when posting about your progress on Instagram.

I think that's all the info I have for you today.
Please let me know if you have any questions!
I'm excited to quilt-along with you 
so get your pattern and fabric and let's get this party started!


  1. I'm going to try and fit this into my schedule. It's so pretty.

  2. I like both backgrounds, you're making it really hard to choose!

  3. Autumn Glow is a pretty pattern. One day I'll do a quilt along.


I ♥ to hear from you so please feel free to leave a comment. I read each one and try to respond as often as I can. Thanks so much for stopping by! ~Amber
