Embrace the fall ambiance and get into the spirit of quilting with these gorgeous fall fabric collections in 2021!
As usual, Art Gallery fabrics have created a truly delicious color palette. This Season and Spice autumn fabric collection can easily stand on its own in a quilt or can be blended with other fabric collections or coordinating solids.
If you want to drift away from the typical warm and vibrant autumn color palette, this classic earthy palette might be the one for you.
Dear Stella launched an earth-tone fabric for their autumn collections that brings a soft touch of a lush forest with an unbelievably sweet rendering of woodland animals.
This fall quilting fabric has a high contrast of colors that’s easily divisible into darks and lights within the collection. This Autumn Day by Nancy Mink would be a glorious collection to use in a traditional log cabin quilt. I would suggest using a 5-inch log cabin template with this as the wider strops would show off the cute prints of the pumpkins, plaids, and berries.
Captures the mood of the elusive time between summer and full fall – when the fruit trees start to ripen and summer glory is fading but not yet completely gone with this Summer’s End fabric collection by Alison Janssen.
I would love to make a simple quilt with relatively large blocks using our best-selling 7-inch log cabin paper piecing templates to incorporate into this collection. It will surely be a gorgeous autumn log cabin quilt!
If you prefer purchasing fat quarter bundles, this autumn collection of Adel in Autumn by Sandy Gervais is the perfect choice for your fall quilt project.
It is a lovely collection of smaller-scale prints. It is traditional but with a little more contrast and cheerfulness than the typical reproduction style collections. Perfect to pair with our large log cabin paper piecing templates.
If you want to achieve a vintage look in your quilts, opt for Grandma’s Garden by Hawthorne Supply. This collection is digitally printed on fabric by demand.
The texture of these fabrics is not my favorite because the ink gives a vibe that it’s an extra layer on top of the fabric. But even with that, this beautiful fall collection of Hawthorne Supply would be lovely to incorporate into a late summer and early autumn quilts theme.
Also, it’s really cool that you can choose between different scales of the same design. Surely, one of the advantages of on-demand fabric printing.
This autumn fat quarter bundle from Hannah West is a great addition to your fabric collection.
This traditional fall fabric has beautiful autumnal patterns of flowers, leaves, pumpkins, and squirrels that will surely give an elegant and cozy look to your quilts. The small prints are perfect for log cabin quilt projects and small-scale paper piecing.
Not a traditional autumn fabric collection, but this Folktale by Lella Boutique has a great color scheme for early fall.
You can play down the whites and get extra yellows, browns, and peaches in this collection. This might be a perfect color combination to use when doing our mini pincushion patterns!
Here’s another autumn quilting fabric that you might want to try – a beautiful traditional collection of Homestead Harvest by Julie Letvin.
This Civil War-era reproduction line has an old-fashioned pattern of leaves, flowers, and shapes in a wonderful blend of browns, tans, blues, and yellows. This fabric can make a wonderful scrappy quilt or you can pair it with other fabric lines or prints to make a vintage quilt project.
Another lovely traditional small-scale collection. This Hope Blooms Fat Quarter Bundle of Kansas Troubles Quilters is a perfect choice if you want Earth tones for your next quilts. I would like to take out most of the blues and whites and only use the cheddar, orange, reds, browns, and blacks to create a strong autumn mood.
