The Color Palette is Key to Autumn Quilts
Do you have a pattern in mind for an autumn patchwork or applique quilt? Select fall colors (brown, orange, gold and red) to give it the look of the season. If you don’t have a pattern already picked out, all of these are free and the colors can be adapted to suit your tastes.
Scrappy Maple Leaf Pillow Sham
This charming appliqued pillow sham from Quilt Magazine can be easily adapted to a larger sized quilt. Simply stitch several maple leaf blocks together to achieve the size you want (see quilt and bed sizes). We can easily imagine this done up in brighter, more modern colors, although the traditional look pictured here is lovely and perfectly suits the season!
Maple Leaf Quilt from France
This quilt, also from Cindy Carter, has another take on maple leaves. Make them as subdued or as bright as you want!
This quilt from AllPeopleQuilt.com doesn’t have maple leaves but the warm earthy colors are perfect for fall. We’d love to have this gorgeous patchwork star quilt to snuggle under as days grow cooler.

PLEASE NOTE: Quilting Digest has featured many patterns from vendors participating in the Craftsy Marketplace, most of which have been deleted by Craftsy. It's going to take awhile for us to hunt down new sources for those patterns. In the meantime there are many links to patterns on our site that no longer work. We apologize if this article contains one or more of those links and appreciate your patience while we straighten things out. Thank you!
PLEASE NOTE: Quilting Digest does not sell or otherwise provide patterns directly. We showcase patterns and projects from various vendors, bloggers and other sources. Please make a note of where you access a pattern (the link in the yellow box toward the end of each Quilting Digest article). That way you can contact Support for that source if you have downloading problems or other issues. Thank you!
