It’s one of our favorite times of the year—fall crafting season! Whether you love Halloween or Thanksgiving, or just love all things pumpkin spiced, Thimbles has lots of quilt kits and free project ideas to inspire you this fall. With this post, plus last year’s MORE Fall Projects to Quilt & Sew and the previous year’s Fall Projects to Quilt & Sew, we now have more than 20 FREE projects to spark your fall quilting and sewing.
But before we get to that, we want to share some of our latest Halloween, Thanksgiving, and autumn-inspired kits to make it even easier to complete something fun this season.
Autumn Quilt Kits
Do you love the shift to autumn captured in the color of the changing leaves? The Luminescent Batik kit (above left) includes the pattern and fabric for the top and binding of the Luminescent Quilt. The batik fabrics capture that shift to fall in the transitioning colors of the sawtooth stars. The Year of Art Autumn Table Runner (above right) offers a similar feel, with a kit that includes the pattern and fabric for the front, back, and binding.
The I Love Fall - Night Sky Kit includes the pattern and fabric for the top and binding. The quilt measures 42” x 50”: and features pumpkins and crows in elegant shades of orange, teal, and soft blue astride a gorgeous central panel.
Halloween Quilt Kits
Halloween lovers, rejoice! We have lots of bone chilling projects for you to choose from. The Glow-o-Ween FQ Bundle (top left) includes 5 fat quarters—remember it when you’re considering the free projects below. The Halloween Bones Yoga Mat Tote Bag (bottom left)has the fabric, pattern, webbing and stabilizer to make a yoga mat tote bag in spooky skeleton and spider web fabrics. Finally, we still have ONE Halloween-themed Timeshare kit from this year’s Brown Bag Mystery! This was one of Tammy’s favorite kits and we don’t think it will be around much longer…it will haunt you once it’s gone!
The Spellbound Quilt Kit (above) includes fabrics from the Storybook Fabric Halloween Collection from Spirit Fabrics to make the quilt top and binding of the Spellbound Quilt. The pattern to make the 75”x75” quilt is also included. Plus, there’s enough fabric to make a coordinating throw pillow!
The Haunted Blackbird Quilt Kits include the pattern and fabric for the top and binding to create quilts measuring 66” x66”. The center panel motifs include a witch (above left) and a crow (above right). Each quilt features simple but striking blocks around the center motif.
Thanksgiving Quilt Kits
The Golden Turkey Columbia Road Kit includes all the fabric for the top, backing, and binding to make the Columbia Road table runner in autumnal colors with a central turkey motif. You will need the book Tabletastic to make the runner, but we always recommend this collection—it’s one of our all-time favorites!
FREE Fall Projects
Baby Lock’s Fall Leaves Wall Quilt turns a keen eye on your fabric scraps in green, gold, orange, red, and purple. If you love foundation paper piecing or have always wanted to try the technique, this beginner-level FPP project is perfect.
Sew Mariana’s Scrappy Acorn Quilt Block is another project for using up fabric scraps. It calls for twenty-eight 1 ¾” x 1 ¾” squares, as well as one fat quarter and scrap for the acorn’s base. Don’t forget to check out our Fat Quarter bundles if you need to stock up on supplies!
She Wears Flowers’ Turkey Placemat with Pockets is an adorable way to dress up your Thanksgiving table. Another fabric scrap project, we love how the feathers double as pockets to hold utensils and napkins. This is so cute for kids and adults—and you might actually get kids to help you set the table. Tell them it’s their turn to “stuff the turkey”!
The fall season is not complete without a pumpkin table runner. There are so many options out there, but we love that this Scrappy Pumpkin Table Runner uses scraps and even has a no-sew option if you want to add just a bit of pumpkin decor to your home.
This Quilted Pumpkin Table Runner from Baby Lock is a quick and easy beginner-level project that can be finished in one weekend. You can find step by step instructions from designer Mary Go Round Quilts here.
Fort Worth Fabric Studio’s Boo to You Quilt is a classic quilt block design with 4-patch blocks, flying geese, pumpkin squares and a spooky star block in the center. We think this quilt would look great with a mix of our Halloween and Fall fabrics!
Yo-Yo + No-Sew Pumpkins
These pumpkins from Quilting Digest are a very sweet and easy way to dress up a holiday table or mantel. Both use fabric scraps, and while the Yo-Yo Pumpkins (above left) require a bit of sewing, the No-Sew Pumpkins (above right), as their name suggests, require no sewing at all.
We hope these projects have inspired you to craft up something fun for autumn. Remember to check out our selection of kits for more fun options this season!
