As summer wanes and the kids head back to school, it’s time to look ahead to fall quilting projects! That means rich autumn hues; leaves, pumpkins and owls; and of course some fun Halloween designs. Below, I’ve gathered together 10 of our favorite fall and Halloween quilts from Quiltmaker and some of our sister quilting brands. It’s a fun collection of both old and new favorites. I hope you find something that inspires you:
