Witches, and Bats, and Cats – Oh My!

Whether you go all out for Halloween or not, it’s fun to get in the spirit and display some seasonal whimsy. We’ve found several great patterns for quilts, wall hangings, mug rugs and more that are perfect for Halloween.

These quilt projects are all small so they can be finished quickly. Use seasonal Halloween fabrics or choose fabrics of the appropriate colors. Either way, you’ll have fun making each project your own – and you’ll have something you love to display year after year!

Halloween Night Sentinels

Two not-so-spooky owls keep watch on a starry Halloween night and are a wonderful addition to your seasonal decor. The finished runner designed by Patrick Lose measures 14″ x 42″.

Witchy Toes

We love these quirky witch’s legs and shoes from Trillium Designs! Use the block for a wall hanging, throw pillow, tote bag …  well, however you want! The paper pieced block finishes at 10″ square so there are plenty of ways to use it.

NOTE:  Piece Q1 runs off the page and the last section of it is on page 5.  You have to tape/glue them together before you can cut the fabric.

Halloween Bats Mug Rug

This batty little quilt from The Patchsmith was designed as a mug rug but we can also see it on the wall! It’s made using fusible applique and will be about 9″ wide x 5.5″ tall once finished, unless you choose to enlarge it (instructions available). The pattern is included in a set of 10 Halloween and Thanksgiving mug rug designs.

Purchase the “Halloween and Thanksgiving” mug rug patterns here.

You’ll find instructions for enlarging the pattern and lots of other helps here.

Halloween Trick or Treat Bag

While this was designed for little ghosts and goblins to carry their loot home in, we’d much prefer to put it on display. It will be fun next to the front door or on a table anywhere that needs a spot of Halloween spirit.
