Hello, pre-cut lovers! Today I have a charm pack quilt block pattern for you using Brigitte Heitland’s Modern Backgrounds (Ink and Paper). These cute little ghosts are fun to sew and can be combined to create a table runner, quilt, or a pillow. The possibilities are endless!

This quilt block finishes at 4½” x 6½”.

Please note, the ingredients listed are for ONE ghost block.

Sew the ghost bottom piece to the 2½” x 5″ black rectangle, following the edges but leave the top edge unstitched. Trim away the excess black fabric from the back of this piece to reduce bulk.

MBS-charming-ghost-block-5

Sew the ghost bottom to the top and press.

MBS-charming-ghost-block-9

Glue baste the ghost eyes and mouth in place. Set the glue with a hot iron. Stitch around each piece to secure. If you are not comfortable with your stitches, use black thread so they will not show.

    Very cute, but I’m going to put only 2 dark squares at the bottom an place them in the middle so they will look like feet. I will add 1 white/background on one side and a small orange pumpkin on the other side to fill in the space.
