Midnight Moon QAL – Bonus Block 4 – Spooky Skull

Hello! Today I’m sharing the fourth bonus block for the Midnight Moon Quilt Along. This block is called Spooky Skull! Even though it is the most complex of the bonus blocks, it’s also my very favorite!

Spooky Skull block by April Rosenthal made with Midnight Magic 2 fabrics

If I were going to make a full quilt out of this block, I know just what I’d do….a little tweak to a few of the blocks to make them a little more….suave? And I’ve got myself a cheeky Skelly quilt that will make me laugh every time I see it. ;)

My Suave Skull quilt….another for my WIP list ;)

A few tips for making this one? Take your time and enjoy the process. There are a lot of tiny pieces, but the steps themselves are simple. If you go slow, you can do it, I promise!

Lots of pieces make for one cute block!

If you get all the way to the end of the block and find that it isn’t quite big enough, add wider borders to top, bottom, and sides, and trim up to 8 1/2″. It will still look great! Be sure to use #spookyskullblock if you decide to make this—I’d love to see yours!

I hope you’re having so much fun with the Midnight Moon Quilt Along!

  1. Thank you for the free Halloween patterns. My grandsons are going to love the skull block.
    Have great day.

  2. On this skull pattern, you have a “F” but does not show where it goes. Please help before I start sewing this cute pattern. I have everything cut out. I appreciate this free pattern and it is just what I needed to complete my Halloween projects. 🥰
