1. Create Blocks


Halloween tree and pumpkin applique pattern Block 1: Tree & Pumpkin

Following manufacturer's instructions, attach fusible web to the wrong side of each fabric. The paper patterns will be traced onto the paper side of the fusible web. If you need more instruction on using fusible web, refer to my fusible web & applique pressing sheet tutorial.

Print patterns. Cut out the paper pattern pieces. Turn them over (wrong side down) and trace the pattern pieces onto the paper side of the fusible web.

Cut out all fabric pieces: hill, tree (cut out around the outline only - the overlap lines of branches can be painted on), inside pumpkin, pumpkin and pumpkin stem. Cut out the face of the pumpkin (eyes, nose and mouth).

Lay your 6.5" x 6.5" sky square down, right side up. Lay the hill piece in the lower right hand corner of the sky square. Place the tree on the hill.

Peel the paper off of the fabric pieces (the paper layer of the fusible web). Place the "inside pumpkin" piece on the hill. Lay the pumpkin over the "inside pumpkin" piece, so that the yellow shows through the cut out areas of the face. Last, place the stem onto the pumpkin. When you are sure of placement, press with iron. The heat from the iron will fuse the pieces. Follow the manufacturer's instructions for heat setting. 


Halloween haunted house applique pattern Block 2: House

Following manufacturer's instructions, attach fusible web to the wrong side of each fabric. The paper patterns will be traced onto the paper side of the fusible web. If you need more instruction on using fusible web, refer to my fusible web & applique pressing sheet tutorial.

Print patterns. Cut out the paper pattern pieces. Turn them over (wrong side down) and trace the pattern pieces onto the paper side of the fusible web.

Cut out all fabric pieces: main part of house, tower of house, roof for main house, roof for tower, roof over door, door, porch, 2 ghosts, grave marker, and the little round circle for the tower round window (or you can just put a dab of fabric paint for this part). For the rectangular windows, cut an orange piece and a black piece the size of the window. Cut out the center area of the black pieces, on the inside lines on the pattern pieces.  

Peel the paper off of the fabric pieces (the paper layer of the fusible web). Lay a 6.5" x 6.5" sky square down, right side up. Place the hill against the bottom edge of the square. Lay the main part of the house on the hill. Place the roof on the main house piece. Next, lay the tower part of the house so that it slighly overlaps the main house piece. NOTE: The house looks best if the pieces are slightly crooked. It makes it look like an "old house". Lay the roof over the tower. Then, place the orange window pieces down. Place the black window pieces over the orange pieces. Place the door, roof over door and last is the porch, slightly overlapping the house. Then place the ghosts so that they appear to be coming out of the windows. Place the grave marker on the hill, at an angle. When you are sure of placement, press with iron. The heat from the iron will fuse the pieces. Follow the manufacturer's instructions for heat setting.  The dotted lines on the house pieces show the overlap area. 


Halloween witch and moon applique pattern Block 3: Witch & Moon

Following manufacturer's instructions, attach fusible web to the wrong side of each fabric. The paper patterns will be traced onto the paper side of the fusible web. If you need more instruction on using fusible web, refer to my fusible web & applique pressing sheet tutorial.

Print patterns. Cut out the paper pattern pieces. Turn them over (wrong side down) and trace the pattern pieces onto the paper side of the fusible web.

Cut out all fabric pieces: moon, broom handle, straw part of broom, dress, cape, face, hand, hair, and hat.  

Peel the paper off of the fabric pieces (the paper layer of the fusible web). Lay a 6.5" x 6.5" sky square down, right side up. Place the moon in the upper left quadrant of the sky square. Lay the broom handle so that it covers the moon at an angle (refer to photo above). Lay the straw part of the broom at the end of the broom handle, slightly overlapping the handle. Lay the hand and face near the top of the broom handle. Lay the dress so that it slightly overlaps the hand and drapes down over the broom handle. Place the cape over the dress so that it flies out slightly above the dress in the back. Place the hair so that it overlaps the right side of the face piece. Last, place the hat so that it slightly overlaps the face and hair. When you are sure of placement, press with iron. The heat from the iron will fuse the pieces. Follow the manufacturer's instructions for heat setting. 


2. Stitch Blocks Together


quilt block borders Top & Bottom Borders

Lay one 2.5" x 6.5" border piece on the top edge of block one. Lay one 2.5" x 6.5" border piece on the bottom edge of block one. Stitch the border pieces to the block, right sides together.

Repeat with block 3. 

Then stitch the blocks together in the order shown: tree block on top, house in the middle and witch on the bottom.

Make two long side borders by sewing orange and black squares to 2.5" x 6.5" border pieces as follows: 2.5" black square - border piece - orange square - border piece - black square - border piece - orange square. Place one border on the left side of your blocks so that the orange square is on top. Place the other border on the right side of your blocks so that the black square is on top. Stitch the long borders to your blocks, right side together.  Refer to the photo at the top of the page.


3. Finish The Wall Hanging


Add Machine Embroidery (optional)

If you wish to add satin stitching around the applique pieces, or free motion embroidery to the blocks, do so at this time (before layering your wall hanging). Refer to my Desert Scene: Free Motion Embroidery Tutorial.

Paint Outline Of Applique Pieces (optional)

Use fabric paints to add detail and to outline your applique pieces. Add eyes to the ghosts, "writing" on the grave marker, fencing on the hill behind the house, door knob etc. The fabric paint helps hold down the edges of the applique pieces. For this wall hanging, I used fabric paints rather than satin stitching.

Layering, Binding & Hanging Sleeve

Measure your wallhanging. It should measure 10.5" x 26.5". Cut a piece of backing fabric 10.5" x 26.5". Cut a piece of batting 10.5" x 26.5" (I use fusible fleece - it works very well).

Go to assembly instructions for layering and binding your wall hanging. 

Go to hanging sleeve instructions to learn how to attach a hanging sleeve. The hanging sleeve should be added to the backing before the layers are put together.
