Spooky & Sweet Mystery Quilt and Stitch Along is Coming Soon…

We’ve prepared something Spooky & Sweet for Halloween! The Spooky & Sweet Mystery Quilt Along and Stitch Along is our 4th annual Halloween Quilt Along and Stitch Along with weekly free pattern releases and video tutorials for the quilt. Join Kimberly Jolly for this cute Halloween Mystery Quilt Along, as she shows you how to sew a new block each week. Peeking would spoil this sweet treat, so we won’t reveal the full quilt until the very last week!

Starting in June, we will release weekly quilt block video tutorials on our YouTube channel along with FREE quilt block and cross stitch patterns on the Spooky & Sweet Sew Along Supply Page.

Now that you’ve peeked at the quilt the rest is a mystery, but we can tell you a few things. The Spooky & Sweet Quilt is the perfect tablerunner or wall hanging since it comes in two finishing sizes 30.5″ x 34.5″ and 17.5″ x 65.5″. We are sewing ours in Bella Solids from Moda Fabrics.

If you’re eager to weave some Halloween magic just like ours, nab your Spooky & Sweet Quilt Kit now, it includes fabric for the top, binding, and backing for either finishing size! We expect them to be ready in late May, in plenty of time for the quilt along. Reserve your kits now to receive them right away when the fabrics arrive!

The Spooky & Sweet Cross Stitch measures 98w x 98h, finishing as a 7” square when stitched on 14 count Aida! If you’re working with a different cloth, you can use 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 Spooky & Sweet Thread Pack on Charcoal Dyed Effect 14 Count Aida by Fabric Flair. Some other seasonal spooky supplies we’d recommend include the Pumpkin Floss Drops, Spooky & Sweet Enamel Needle Minder, and the Pumpkin Mad for Plaid Project bag.

  1. I made the Haunted Halloween cross stitch and I love it. I will be making the new one for sure. Can’t wait for it to be available. Thanks for the free pattern.

  2. if i’m understanding correctly, the first of the 4 spooky and sweet cross stitch mystery SAL will not be released until June? and then july, aug, sept the final?

    1. Hi Sharlene! For the Mystery Quilt and Stitch alongs patterns are released weekly not monthly. I hope this clears up some confusion!

      This Mystery Quilt and Stitch along works just like our previous one’s if you’d like to take a look at them for reference. I’ll link them below, but the Stitch Along and Quilt Along patterns will be released the same days. We will have a kick off closer to our start that will include a full schedule and even more details.
