Whether you want to go ham just for October, or you keep your dark academic decor out all year, there are so many fun and festive Halloween quilts to sew!
I am ALL about that year-round Halloween vibe. Here are my favorite Halloween quilt projects:
Quilt Block Patterns
paper-pieced coffin block. The precision of paper-piecing allows you to make some amazing quilt blocks. I love these coffins in a rainbow of colorways!
paper-pieced skull. This is NOT a beginner’s paper-piecing pattern, but if you’ve got the skills, you can have this skull!
strip-pieced skull. This skull quilt block isn’t as complicated as paper-piecing, but it’s still quite precise. I misread the tutorial the first time around and ended up having to seam-rip soooo many pieces to change them from a half-inch seam to a quarter-inch seam, grr. My skull looked a lot better after that, though!
ghost quilt block. This little guy is not for beginners, but his cuteness makes up for the work you’ll put in sewing him!
patchwork pumpkin. Piece several quilt blocks in a row to make a pumpkin table runner.
Trick-or-Treat Sue. Give your Sunflower Sue quilt block a Halloween makeover!
Halloween Candy quilt block. This quilt block is the perfect way to celebrate my personal favorite thing about Halloween! In a red and green colorway, though, it would work equally well as a Christmas quilt block.
Spooky Treats block. Pair this quilt block of spooky apothecary bottles with the candy block, above.
Jack-o-lantern quilt block. I love how happy this Jack-o-lantern is–it’s perfect for a child’s quilt!
Bats and Boos cross-stitch block. Okay, this is a cross-stitch block, not a pieced block, so polish up your bifocals!
Something Wicked This Way Comes block. This would also look wonderful with ruby-red witch slippers!
Bats and Boos Mystery Quilt Along. Join the Fat Quarter Shop in its Halloween quilt-along via their free patterns–starting with this bat block!
Barn Bats quilt block. These bats are ADORABLE!
FPP witch hat. Foundation paper piecing lets you make the cutest witch hat quilt block!
Full Quilt Patterns
All Hallow’s Eve quilt. Applique is the secret ingredient to this large-format quilt pattern.
Scary Moon banner and pillow. Make two matching decor pieces using the same techniques.
Meowy Halloween. Use Halloween novelty prints, or just prints in Halloween colorways, to sew this festive kitty quilt.
Gone Batty quilt. Want something spooky, but you’re not into orange? This quilt gives you a spooky bat pattern in a more neutral black and white colorway.
Jack-o-lantern quilt. I love pixel quilts–they’re so quick and easy to piece! For this quilt pattern, have fun with the Jack-o-lantern’s face… or skip it, and just make a pumpkin!
Cheeky Pumpkin quilt. If you love to applique, you will LOVE appliqueing this quilt with its pumpkins, buntings, and lettering.
maple leaf quilt. This quilt’s autumn-colored maple leaf is a more subtle nod to the Halloween season, one that you can keep it out through Thanksgiving.
Bat Crew quilt. Make a mini quilt of these fun bats, or piece multiples together for a BIG quilt!
paper-pieced Jack-o-Lantern. I love the look of this paper-pieced Jack-o-lantern!
Boo to You quilt. Want a beautiful autumn quilt that’s not so spooky and can stay on display through Thanksgiving? This is the quilt for you!
spider web quilt. Considering its unusual shape, this quilt is surprisingly easy to create!
Ghoulies and Ghosties lap quilt. This lap quilt isn’t too spooky to snuggle under!
quilted pumpkin placemat. How festive are these placemats? I love decorations that can work for September all the way through Thanksgiving.
spider web table topper. The secret behind spider web quilts is that they’re a LOT simpler to make than they look!
White Pumpkins quilt. I bought my first ghost pumpkin this autumn, and I’m in love with all things white pumpkin now.
spider mini quilt. Applique makes it easy to add all the fiddly details of a spooky spider to this mini quilt.
Charmed quilt. This simple pumpkin quilt is easier to piece than it looks!
mini quilt. There aren’t too many witchy quilt patterns kicking around, so if you love witches, this quilt is the one for you!
strip pumpkin quilt. Strip quilts are my favorite, thanks to how quickly they sew up. You’ll have your finished pumpkin in no time!
haunted house quilt. Okay, it may take you from now until next Halloween to make this quilt, but it will be a MASTERPIECE.
Jack-o-Lustre quilt. I love how these Jack-o-lantern faces glow!
