Favorite Fall Quilts

My kids are back in school after what felt like the shortest summer ever…and even though I’d take another month of summer, I’m also ready to get back to routines and back to my sewing machine!  Fall is my favorite time to sew, so I rounded up some of my favorite past fall quilts all in one post.

Fall Leaves still takes the top spot as my favorite fall quilt.  I’ve seen some fabulous versions of this quilt over the past year on Instagram!   Every time I see a new one I like it more than mine and I want to remake it.

Costco already has the Halloween candy out, which must mean it’s time to start a Halloween quilt!  I made this Bats quilt a handful of years ago for my son:  

and then I made another one but in cute colors!  Sewing with only black and white is veeeeery boring.

I used up all my random pieces and fall-ish scraps on this hourglass quilt a couple of years ago.  I just got this one out today! 

 I have a free pattern for it you can find here.

And of course no fall quilt roundup is complete without Pumpkins…

and pumpkins with polka dots…

On a side note, you could add leaves to these pumpkins and this would be a darling back to school quilt with apples!

I hope you find some inspiration and a fun fall project to work on.

I’m off to bind a quilt and dust off my sewing machine.  Can you believe I haven’t bound or finished a quilt in over 5 months?!!!!!   Me neither.

Terrace

Terrace Quilt Pattern

I drew out this Terrace quilt design over a year ago, but saved it until I had a fabric line to use it with.  It’s perfect for showing off the large florals and plaids of Forget-Me-Not...and the tiny blue dot makes a great background. 

This pattern is in the same style as Jelly Weave, and Picnic…with a woven look but easy to make. 

Forget-Me-Not comes to stores in October in case you missed it….it’s getting closer!

Terrace is a fat quarter pattern in 5 sizes. It’s an on point design but the blocks are easy and it goes together pretty quickly with some chain piecing. As I was making this quilt I kept thinking how cute it would be in a kids novelty print with large scale fabrics and some basics.

Kait quilted this for me…it’s hard to see the design but it’s florals and shapes and what looks like cherries. It adds some movement and charm to this quilt.

My kids have been out of school for a couple of weeks and I’m feeling adjusted to the extra noise/mess/eating that comes with 4 kids being home. I love having my kids home, and especially love watching them remember how to be friends instead of just siblings.  But also the sole purpose of life for my 12 year old boy is to tease his little sisters until they scream and Mom loses it.  :) 

Happy Summer!
