Hello friends! This is Jennifer Long from Bee Sew Inspired and I am excited to share my not-so-spooky Halloween Quilt pattern with you.
Spooky and Sweeter Halloween Quilt using Fabric Panels and Raw-Edge Applique
The inspiration for this quilt pattern came from a Halloween Bag fabric panel (Art Gallery Fabrics – Spooky and Sweeter) but the beauty of this pattern, is it can be made with any large-scale fabric prints you already have at home.
I love the opportunity to fussy-cut cute prints and you can really get creative with the applique placement.
Are you ready to get started? Let’s have some fun and whipping up this fun quilt this weekend!
What you need:
1 Spooky ‘n Sweeter Fat Quarter Bundle containing at least 17 prints.
1 Spooky ‘n Sweeter 36” Sweet Haunting Panel (Or additional yardage with large motifs suitable for fussy cutting and applique.)
Black Solid Fabric for Top and Bottom Border: ¼ yard
Medium Grey Solid for Background: 2 yards
Binding: 5/8 yard
Backing: 3 5/8 yards

Halloween Triangle Quilt Banner SVG Cut File
Halloween Triangle Quilt Banner Template
HeatnBond LITE sewable Iron-On Adhesive for applique
StitchnSew Sew-in Fleece
(Optional) EZ Print Lite if transferring your own designs and not using a fabric panel
From the panel, cut (2) large panel images, referencing the quilt photo for panel orientation.
Use the Triangle Template provided to fussy cut (21) panel or print images from the triangle portion of the Spooky n’ Sweeter Panel and (21) background fabric triangles
Trim up the remaining section of the panel featuring small motifs (witch, cat, spider web, skeleton, pumpkin). On the wrong side of the left-over panel piece, fuse a piece of Heat ‘n Bond LITE Sewable Iron-On Adhesive trimmed to the size of that panel piece. Cut out each of the (5) individual small motifs along the printed lines on the panel for raw edge applique. Set aside for Applique Blocks.
Gather (5) 12 ½” background squares and (5) applique motifs prepared with Heat n Bond LITE sewable Iron-On Adhesive during the cutting instructions. The applique motifs should already be trimmed to the finished size.
Remove the paper from the glue side of each applique motif. Place each applique motif onto the right side of (1) 12 ½” background square. Fuse each applique motif in place with your warm iron.
Finish the raw edges of each applique motif with a coordinating thread color by hand or with your sewing machine using the decorative stitch of your choice.
There should be (5) Applique Blocks, each measuring 12 ½” x 12 ½” unfinished.
Following the cutting and assembly directions in the Halloween Applique Quilt Pattern, make (4) Star blocks. The blocks should measure 12 1/2″ x 12 1/2″ square.
Assemble the whole quilt top center according to the cutting and layout instructions in the downloadable PDF pattern.
Your Quilt Top is complete!
Layer your backing, StitchnSew Sew-in Fleece and quilt top. Quilt as desired.
Bind the edges with your favorite binding method.
For added fun, embellish your quilt with long stitch hand quilting, embroidery or buttons.
