About the models in the list
Personally, I love making Halloween quilts! This might actually be my favorite quilt to sew. On this list you'll find a combination of free quilt patterns and tutorials that I've written, as well as a few patterns written by some of my favorite quilt pattern designers.
If you are new to quilting and looking for a QUICK project, I recommend starting with a pre-cut 10″ bundle of your favorite Halloween fabric and making a simple patchwork quilt.
Eleven Halloween Quilt Patterns
1. Halloween Haberdashery Quilt Pattern
THE Halloween Haberdashery Quilt Pattern is made up of a series of Witch Hat Quilt blocks. The blocks are very simple to assemble and can be assembled in the traditional way or using Foundation Paper Piecing (with a template purchased separately). The pattern also has instructions for creating cute pumpkin blocks to complete the quilt.
2. Tic Tac Cat Quilt Pattern
The Tic Tac Cat Quilt is a mix and match quilt pattern. The blocks in the center are swappable, and one version is perfect for Halloween!
3. Hexagonal Halloween Quilt
Halloween quilts don't always have to be made from Halloween designs. Sometimes you just need to change the fabrics. This hexagon quilt is put together so that there are no Y seams. I created this quilt using some of my favorite Halloween fabrics in my stash a few years ago. This is a free quilt pattern that you can find on my site.
4. Spooky Sample Quilt
The Spooky Sampler Quilt is made from a variety of adorable Halloween quilt blocks! It features raw edge appliques and traditional quilt pieces.
5. Bats Quilt Pattern
Allison from Cluck Cluck Sew designed the cutest pattern featuring a collection of bats!
5. Spooky Shelfie Quilt
The Spooky Shelfie Quilt pattern is a library-inspired quilt pattern! I designed it trying to imagine everything that would be on a shelf in a witch's house! There is even a series of YouTube videos accompanying you through the construction stages.
6. Halloween Quilt Block Series
Nadra Ridgeway of Ellis and Higgs designed several Halloween-themed quilt blocks that can be mixed and matched to create something totally unique. You can collect the models in his Etsy store, Ellis and Higgs. These blocks will also be perfect if you want to create a smaller mini quilt or wall hanging.
7. Pumpkins and cats
Amanda from Jedi Craft Girl created a fun version of a pumpkin quilt with her I Love Cats pattern! Get it from her shop, Jedi Craft Girl, via Etsy. I think the cat blocks in this pattern would be perfect to make into table runners. You can sew a row of blocks, then quilt and bind it.
8. Cardboard Quilt Pattern
My Letter Board Quilt pattern can be personalized for any holiday! I really don't “need” another Halloween quilt, but I am very tempted to sew a Halloween version of this quilt. It would be fun to use some of your favorite quilting fabric. When you purchase the pattern, it comes with applique designs for the entire alphabet!
9. Halloween Streamers Template
This banner quilt from Diary of a Quilter is a great example of Halloween fabrics turning a simple pattern into an adorable Halloween quilt!
10. Gathered Precut Quilt Pattern
The Gathered Precuts Quilt Tutorial is a free tutorial on our site! It uses a pre-cut 10″ stack of fabric and a few extra yards. I made my quilt using the Spooky Schoolhouse fabric and panel. Which makes it the perfect Halloween quilt!
11. Pumpkin Ghost Quilt
The Ghost Patch Quilt is a special edition quilt pattern that I designed and is available as a quilt kit! It's made from Fat Quarters!
