As soon as the kids start heading back-to-school, it’s time to start thinking about autumnal quilt patterns, particularly for seasonal holidays like Halloween! Quilt patterns can be a great way to fill your home with spookiness and a little bit of whimsy! They’re also great quilting projects for hesitant or new quilters who don’t want to jump into a large project. Many of the autumn quilts you see below are on the smaller side – we’re talking table runners, wall-hanging quilt patterns, and quilted accessories – perfect for creating seasonal quilts that don’t give you, the quilter, a fright!
