We’re diving into October with a fun new mini quilt! This cute Spinning Spiderwebs Mini Quilt is the perfect little wall quilt or table topper Halloween decoration.
I had so much fun putting this little quilt together! It’s super easy to do and I love the combination of the teal and orange. Kind of different for Halloween but so fun. You could definitely do traditional Halloween colors though too!
It’s a great scrappy project too. Mix and match your oranges for the spiderweb or go with a cool black and white color scheme.
Let’s get started!
Finished Mini Quilt Size: 14″ x 25″
Materials: (List contains affiliate links. This just means that if you purchase from this link a small amount will go towards supporting this website but it won’t cost you anything extra. :)
- 1/4 yard background fabric (the polkadot print on my quilt) – Cut out 3 rectangles 10 1/2″ x 6 1/2″
- 1/4 yard border print – Cut 2 pieces 10 1/2″ x 1 1/2″, 2 pieces 10 1/2″ x 2 1/2″, 2 pieces 25″ x 2 1/2″
- 1/2 yard backing fabric – Cut 1 piece 27″ x 16″
- 1/4 yard binding fabric – Cut 2 pieces 2 1/2″ x 44″. (For straight binding – if you want to do bias binding you’ll need more fabric)
- Small amount of fabric scraps for spiderweb, pumpkin, pumpkin background and spider
- HeatnBond Soft Stretch Lite Fusible
- HeatnBond Fusible Fleece
- SpraynBond Basting Spray
All seams allowances are 1/4″.
Begin by cutting out 7 strips that are about 1 1/4″ or 1 1/2″ by 14″ or so. This doesn’t have to be exact. Sew the strips together and press all the seams to one side.
Cut out the triangle from the paper pattern and cut out 5 triangles from the orange fabrics, turning the triangle upside for every other piece.
Sew the triangles together with all the small points together. Don’t worry about matching up the seams. Press the seams away from the center.
Iron a piece of fusible webbing to the wrong side of the pieced web. Remove the paper backing and iron the quilt piece to the top right corner of one of the background rectangles.
For the center square, cut out a piece of fabric larger than the spider. Iron a piece of fusible webbing to the wrong side of the fabric and cut out the spider. Take off the paper backing and iron the spider to the center of the background fabric.
Using the same method as above, cut out and iron the pieces for the pumpkin and stem to a piece of linen fabric.
Cut out the pumpking shape about 1/4″ larger than the printed fabrics.
Iron the pumpkin and leaves to the left side of the remaining background fabric piece.
Stitch around the shapes. If you’re going to be using the mini as a table topper or plan on washing it, I recommend zigzagging around the shapes. If not, you can do a sketchy free motion stitch around each shape with a contrasting thread color.
Sew one of the 1 1/2″ x 10 1/2″ border strips between the web piece and spider piece. Sew a connecting web line between the spider and the web.
Sew the remaining 1 1/2″ wide border strip between the spider piece and the pumpkin piece.
Sew the two shorter 2 1/2″ border pieces to the top and bottom of the mini quilt. Sew the long border pieces to the sides.
Cut a piece of fusible fleece the size of your backing piece. Iron the fleece to the wrong side of the backing fabric.
Spray the wrong side of the quilt front with the basting spray and press the quilt top to the fleece, making sure to smooth it out so there are no wrinkles. Quilt the mini as you wish. I used a small free motion meandering pattern all over the quilt. Bind the quilt to finish it off.
Hang up your mini quilt and show it off! This would be a fun little table topper too.
I hope you like it!
