Haunted Halloween Mystery Quilt and Stitch Along - The Jolly Jabber Quilting Blog

Haunted Halloween Mystery Quilt and Stitch Along

Owl bet you can’t wait to start this new quilt along! Beginning today, June 6, we are releasing a FREE Haunted Halloween quilt and cross stitch pattern each week for four weeks. Kimberly will guide you in sewing this quilt over on the Fat Quarter Shop YouTube Channel, so if you’re new to quilting, this is a great chance to start!

Each Tuesday from June 6-27, we will release a video tutorial on the Fat Quarter Shop YouTube Channel with a FREE quilt block pattern and with a FREE cross stitch pattern. Join Kimberly in cutting, stitching, and sewing a new block each week!

Haunted Halloween Quilt

The Haunted Halloween Quilt is perfect as a banner or tabletopper since it finishes at 31.5” x 32.5”. We are sewing ours with Owl-O-Ween by Urban Chiks for Moda Fabrics! This collection’s creatures are more cute than creepy, so we knew it was the perfect choice.

To see all the supplies for this sew along head to the Haunted Halloween supplies page.

To sew up this quilt in your favorite Halloween fabrics, download the fabric requirements.

Haunted Halloween Cross Stitch

The Haunted Halloween Cross Stitch piece will be stitched in sections as we reveal a new portion of the pattern each week on the Haunted Halloween Sew Along page. Our Halloween-themed mystery quilt inspired this design, so give this pattern a go if you want a matching set.

The Haunted Halloween Cross Stitch measures 109w x 109h, finishing as a 7.875” square when stitched on 14 count Aida! If you’re working with a different cloth, try using our free Cross Stitch Calculator to find your desired size.

The floss and cloth you choose are up to you, but we stitched ours with the Haunted Halloween Classic Colorworks Thread Pack on Pistachio 14 Count Aida by Fiber on a Whim. Some other seasonal spooky supplies we’d recommend include the Pumpkin Enamel Needle MinderGhostly Enamel Keychain, and the Pumpkin Mad for Plaid Project bag.

  1. I can’t wait! Halloween is my favorite holiday!!I love all those little ghosts and goblins👻

  2. I have all my supplies ready to start the stitch along. Thank you Kimberly.

  3. Do you have to do the cross stitch with this…My eyes can’t handle cross stitching anymore.

    1. Hi Debra!

      You can do quilt or cross stitch you are not required to do either! We are sharing the patterns but it is up to you entirely, of course, how or if you wish to participate!

  4. Having a problem with the star blocks using the method in the pattern, they did not turn out that good. Switched to using flying geese, but ran out of fabric. Ordered more and awaiting arrival, so I can try again. I am a little behind the quilt along. I have starched my fabric and made sure I have a quarter inch seam allowance. Hopefully using the flying geese foundation paper will do the trick. Thanks for all the great tips and methods that you give us to try to make perfect blocks!

    1. I’m sorry you’re having issues. Sending some positive sewing vibes your way!
