Great for a beginner or advanced quilter alike and a really nice way to decorate your home, too these potholders take the shape of autumn leaves and make for an adorable project. This tutorial creates two potholders, and the pair is also something you could give as a gift. The potholders themselves don’t take a ton of fabric, so it’s also a nice project for using up scraps. Love when projects are fun and functional!
Autumn Glow from Quilt N Bee

The bold, gradient colors of this quilt absolutely pop against the stark black background and accented by just a bit of green, this design is a unique approach to the autumn quilt. Really, you could use this as a blueprint for any color scheme keeping in mind where this pattern uses lighter colors and darker colors, and how the colors compare on the color wheel. We’ve got to say though, the combo of yellows, oranges, and reds works pretty well.

It’s cute, it’s quick, and it makes a really neat accent to autumn treats. During fall, we’re always sharing treats with family and friends — the last bit of summer produce, freshly baked cookies, candy in honor of Halloween and this is a cute little piece to adorn those gifts with. It’s especially nice if your treats are in a jar, and you want to wrap this decoration right around the front. It’s definitely a special touch that people will love!

If you want to rest your head somewhere, what better place than a pillow that speaks to the season? A bit of a change from sewing a quilt, this pillow is a fun project that also makes a nice home decoration that you can bring out during autumn. And, like some of the above projects, it could make for a great gift.
We hope these patterns offer a little inspiration as the fall weather approaches. Enjoy!
