FREE Paper Pieced Halloween Patterns from Made By Marney

I just can’t stop!!! Designing these Halloween blocks is so much fun! Here are 4 more paper pieced blocks which I am calling my “Black and White Series”.

These are 8″x 8″ unfinished blocks. I used them for potholders, but they also work great in my pillow pattern

or could be used in my “Boo” Table Runner pattern.

Or, put the entire collection of Halloween blocks together to make a quilt.

These FREE blocks can be found on Craftsy and Etsy. Or you may download them here: BLACK-AND-WHITE-BLOCKS-MERGED-AND-UPDATED.pdf (234 downloads) .

Welcome to the 3rd Annual Row Along hosted by Seams to Be Sew.  A huge Thank You to Marian Penn for organizing this event. Also, thanks to our sponsors, Northcott Fabrics  and Calibre Art . Our sponsors are wonderful and we owe them a HEAP of gratitude. Read to the end of this post to find information about the Give-Aways from Northcott and Calibre.

This is your chance to download tons of free row patterns.  I am just 1 of many pattern designers involved in this row-along. This year’s row-along will last for 6 weeks, ending with a “Show and Tell” day Tuesday, October 10. Starting September 5, every Tuesday and Thursday 5 (some days 4) different pattern designers will be offering a FREE row pattern. All rows will measure 30 1/2″ long, so all will consistently fit together into the quilt of your choosing.

Each row is designed with a specific Christmas carol in mind. My row was inspired by “Jolly Old St. Nick”.  I love to paper piece images of Santa, and this is the perfect song. The pattern is paper pieced and is very easy to assemble. If you are new to paper piecing, I suggest you watch my free tutorial on sewing a Simple Paper Pieced Block, found on my “Tutorials” page.

Here are photos of the 4 blocks that make up my row. You can download the patterns and directions for the blocks here Jolly-Old-St.-Nick-MERGED.pdf (991 downloads) . Remember, when paper piecing, your finished block always turns out the opposite of the original pattern.

The pattern explains how to tie a “knot nose” using a scrap of muslin. So cute! My finished row shows the “Jolly Old St. Nick” row finished as a table runner with an inner and outer border. Also, consider using just the “HO HO” block for a pillow or potholder!

More Halloween Paper Pieced Patterns AND 2 FREE Patterns

As promised, I am sharing more of my favorite Halloween paper pieced blocks this week.

This is Skat Cat, the craziest cat in my Halloween collection.

This goofy cat is available as a single paper pieced block.

Bewitched is my favorite witch…and she is very easy to paper piece. This block is also available for sale as a single block.

The Haunted House is part of the Boo Collection, and is sold in a pattern with 6 other Halloween blocks, plus a table runner and potholder pattern.

And finally, here are 2 blocks that are FREE.

The Frankenstein and Dracula paper pieced block patterns are FREE and can be downloaded here:  Count-Dracula-and-Frankenstein-MERGED.pdf (367 downloads)

Potholder directions are not included in this download, just the paper pieced block patterns.

Thanks for stopping by. I hope you enjoy my fun Halloween creations. Attached is a photo of a table runner made from 3 of my Halloween block patterns. Thank you, Wanda, for sharing your cute table runner. And here’s an adorable table topper by Shelley, using all of my Halloween blocks.

Shelley used my Christmas Tree Skirt pattern to assemble this table topper so she could use 8 different Halloween blocks. Didn’t she do an awesome job?!?!

I love seeing my friends’ creations using my patterns. Please share by sending me photos at my email: maryannhertel@gmail.com

FREE Halloween Paper Pieced Patterns from Made By Marney

I am obsessed with Halloween images! The Frankenstein and Count Dracula paper pieced block patterns are FREE for you.

Both blocks will be easy for an intermediate paper piecer.  They make sweet potholders, pillows, table runners …and wouldn’t they make a great trick or treat sack? Use the “Gift Sack” pattern from my new book, “Sew Yourself a Merry Little Christmas“. The book is full of super easy projects.

FRANKENSTEIN

COUNT DRACULA

Look for these free patterns on Etsy and Craftsy. Or download the patterns right here: Count-Dracula-and-Frankenstein-MERGED.pdf (367 downloads)

If you like them, please SUBSCRIBE to this website so you don’t miss any of my upcoming posts.

I hope you enjoy these Halloween images. I had sooo much fun making them…and watch for more Halloween blocks to come in the next couple of weeks! What’s your favorite Halloween theme?

FREE Patterns from Made By Marney

Whats not to like about FREE, right?

The 2 Breezy Butterfly blocks pictured above can be found on my Craftsy and Etsy shops for FREE. These paper pieced patterns can be used for summer potholders, pillows, a table runner or even a butterfly quilt.

I am offering these free patterns as a thank you to my loyal customers…and if you haven’t been a customer in the past, I would value your patronage in the future. I would also love you to SUBSCRIBE if you have not previously done so.

Enjoy!

Book Signing at the QuiltCon in Savannah this Thursday, February 23!

I am on my way to Savannah, GA for QuiltCon and I couldn’t resist making some of the Mini Totes from my book, Cute and Clever Totes. They are the perfect size to hold a few essentials without being too heavy to lug around all day at the convention. I can’t decide which one I like better, so I have to pack them both and trade off each day.Please stop by the C & T Publishers booth, # 118. I will be signing my book on Thursday, February 23 between 12 noon and 1:00 pm. I would love to meet you!

All the patterns for the totes that I am holding are in the book, plus lots, lots more! I will be giving away free block patterns to anyone who purchases a book ( or brings one that’s already been purchased) and stops by the booth between the times mentioned above.

You can get these free block patterns at QuiltCon in Savannah if you purchase a book and ask me to sign it. These Happy Easter Bunny and Ducky  blocks would make great potholders or pillows for spring, don’t you agree?

Hope to see you at QuiltCon!

Lots of Love from Made By Marney.
