As October is fast approaching, I thought I’d give you a head start in suggesting some Halloween quilted or sewn projects for easy fast decorations.
Aside from any usual table runner or quilt pattern on Halloween fabrics, there’s a few extra projects I like to do for different seasons.
The 20 minute table runner is great in this allover Halloween fabric. I’ve also made Halloween pillow cases, for using on the bed and for treat gathering.
You can also see this banner quilt I made using Halloween fabrics draped over our booth at The Northside Market. Digital pattern available from the designer here.
Bunting is a fun and easy way to quickly put up some decorations, and it’s easy to store out of season. You can use scraps, solids, and even have different fronts and backs to your triangles. Any triangle ruler will work for this, and you can use binding scraps as the trim to attach the triangles to. I’m tempted to make this candy corn bunting myself!
Have more time or feeling inspired? You can do a small quilted wall hanging like this pumpkin in an afternoon. Here in Canada, Thanksgiving is about 2 weeks before Halloween, so you could hang up pumpkins for the entire month of October. I also loved this reversible table runner done in Thanksgiving fabrics on one side, Halloween on the other.
Here’s an easy hexagon table topper that shows you how to cut the angle using a regular 6×24″ ruler. Sew together strips of seasonal fabrics and you’re halfway done!
