I know that the other day I posted a bunch of Christmas Ornament ideas- but it IS still fall- so here are a few ideas for some quick fall quilts! I love playing with quilt designs and seeing what they will look like done in lots of different fabric and color combinations, so this was really fun for me! I took a few of my Free Quilt Patterns, and played with fall fabrics- I think you’ll like them as much as I do… You could get the first two done in an afternoon, the third may take you a couple of afternoons. Sounds like a nice, cozy, weekend project to me! You could also make about 4 blocks and make any of these into a table runner.

First, here is the “Grammy’s Rose Garden” quilt pattern. I have had so many people tell me that this has become their “go-to” pattern when they need a quick project or gift! Here is the original:

But look how different it looks in a fall palette- I love this. Maybe I’ll rename this “Grammy’s Pumpkin Patch”:


To make this, simply substitute orange fabrics for the pink, and choose “olive-y” greens. For the centers of the blocks, try using some assorted cream prints/tone-on-tone fabrics. Choose an orange print border, and brown border and binding. Ta-da!! Get the pattern here.

Here is another favorite, when done in spring greens, I called it “Shamrock Shake”:


Done in orange, green and brown, it becomes “Autumn Awe”:



Here is a quilt called “Coming Home,” which I originally designed with Christmas fabrics:



It easily becomes “Homecoming” with some “modern” fabrics:


I love quilting- isn’t it fun playing with fabric??
