Spellbound...Autumn Quilts New and Old


I finally have this new pattern available! I made this quilt a couple of years ago and have been enjoying it in my home and decided it might be fun to share. The elongated look of the block comes from only adding horizontal sashing but no vertical sashing. It is an easy block that is nothing but strips once you make the little hourglass blocks in the middle. If you are local, you might recognize this from it's 'Worldwide Premiere' at Tiny Stitches during the recent Corn Maze Quilt Shop Hop.

Hocus Pocus 

This little quilt was based on a full size vintage quilts spied in an antique mall. It was so much fun to make and I was thrilled when it appeared in the American Patchwork and Quilting calendar a few years ago.

Memory Lane (pattern coming soon!)

This is the quilt that I sleep under every autumn. It is king size and made entirely of 1" squares and strips. The pattern offers the block instructions with options for 5 different sizes. This is an awesome scrap buster!

 October Sky

I was delighted when this quilt was featured in Fons & Porter magazines not once, but twice! It combines strips of neutrals and blues that are separated by orange squares. I enjoyed quilting a small fall leaf in each orange square! This quilt was inspired by vintage quilts featuring 'offset' layouts so that the sides are each different.

Pumpkins in the Patch

The pumpkin quilt is one of my favorites and I plan to make a runner version of it (hopefully before Halloween!)

I've also made a fun apple version of it by changing the oranges to reds and the blacks to browns.

Plaid Paws

This fun pattern has been my best seller online because it features plaids that can be cut from old shirts. While I've also made a batik version of this, the plaid one will always be a favorite.

When Fall Leaves 

And this quilt was my very first quilt published in a magazine! It will always hold a special place in my heart, and it looks awesome on my son's bed. These simple 16 patch blocks sew up so fast, I really should make this one in another colorway!

Sunflower Mystery

And let's not forget the mystery quilt from two years ago that went a little crazy online. Thanks to all of you made this quilt and shared it! Link for free pattern at the top of the blog.

Clearly, I have a thing for autumn quilts! I love how cozy they are as they welcome the first cool nights of fall. Nothing better than snuggling under a quilt to watch football as well. And I just might have another Halloween quilt on the design wall at this very moment. Too much is never enough.

Enjoy every stitch,


  1. What a wonderful quilt show! Love all your scrap friendly quilts!

  2. Very fun to see these! I love the first cheddar quilt. Yumm...
