Pumpkin Spice quilt
Make a Thanksgiving quilt from half-square triangles, and you can snuggle up all season long. The pattern includes cutting instructions for using yardage, charm squares or even scraps. Imagine how warm and cozy this design would be sewn up in flannel fabrics.

Themed mug rugs
For a fresh take on the Thanksgiving turkey, try a totem pole in harvest hues. This cute Thanksgiving-themed quilted mug rug is 1 of 10 mini quilt designs included in a PDF pattern book. The entire collection autumn mini quilts ranges from a Primitive Pumpkin pattern to a quilt-as-you-go mug rug. Use your scraps from any Thanksgiving quilt and you can make a last-minute hostess gift or say thank you to a friend.

We love this Pilgrim Hat paper-pieced quilt block, featuring a signature buckle just above the brim. Sew a single block to add to your Thanksgiving sampler quilt, or make a few blocks in different solid, fall-inspired colors for a graphic approach to a Thanksgiving quilt.

Thanksgiving table runner
A table runner makes a perfect base for your candles, cornucopia, or a handmade centerpiece made by the kiddos. An appliquéd table runner featuring warm fall colors comes with full-size templates. Get creative with free-motion stitching, and you can easily finish this project over a weekend.

If your Thankgiving table is already going to be filled with food, perhaps your wall could use a seasonal banner or wallhanging. This Give Thanks quilt pattern features scrappy maple leaves, a turkey and pumpkins. With blocks made of both patchwork and fusible appliqué, you’ll combine a variety of techniques. Full-size templates are included in the PDF instructions.

Leafy table runner
Fall yellows, reds and oranges mixed with green form the leaves and chevron pattern in this quilted table runner. We love the idea of making a reversible table runner to feature a year-round pattern on one side, and a seasonal design on the other!
