Halloween Quilt Inspiration

Leslie Rutland is the incredibly talented quilter behind The Seasoned Homemaker. We have been lucky enough to have Leslie as a Grace Company ambassador since August 2018. Her favorite types of quilts are those that use half-square triangles to create things like stars and other designs. 

With Halloween rapidly approaching, we knew we had to put a spotlight on this classic, spooky design from Leslie’s library of quilting projects. This design was featured in the Better Homes & Gardens Holiday Crafts magazine and is a fan favorite year after year. In addition, we love that this project is small enough to complete in one afternoon! Below are the needed supplies and materials. Once you’re ready to start your mini spider quilt, click the link to view Leslie’s instructions on her site.
