BLOCK Friday: Halloween Quilts for Every Age!

Hocus Pocus -- Table Quilt Patterns
Hocus Pocus by Joy McKeon

We’re sneaking up on it… Halloween is right around the corner! We have so many Halloween quilts and projects to choose from, you’re destined to find the one (or two, or three, or four) that speaks to you. Choose from easy quilts to make to those that are a bit more challenging. Not sure you want to work on a bed-size quilt pattern? Go with a quilt-as-you-go table runner quilt pattern, like Hocus Pocus. Our Halloween projects are diverse, but all perfect for a Fright Night to remember!

Every home needs a Halloween quilt —  it’s the perfect way to decorate. Halloween is always a kid’s favorite and adding to the frightful décor with a wall quilt or table topper makes the holiday that much more fun and creates memories for years to come. But, it’s not just for kids! We can all enjoy these delightful projects.

Delightful Spooks Quilt - Halloween Quilts

Delightful Spooks by Debra Finan

Delightful Spooks is a spectacular example of pleasing Halloween fans of all ages. The fabrics used help to create an impeccable completed look (luckily, there’s a quilt kit available for this one!) and the design in this quilt is perfect for using 2 1/2”-wide precut strips. The hexagons, which make up the entirety of the quilt top, are pieced in sections for quick and easy assembly. But, even after all of this, you can make the quiltmaking process even easier with the Fons & Porter 60° Pyramid Ruler, which you can learn to use by watching a quick video tutorial.

Below are some more Halloween quilts and projects that might interest you. You’ll find projects of all shapes, sizes and ratings, so you can choose the projects that speak to you!
