Halloween Hey Boo Pillows

Frank – Halloween Pillow Pattern in Hey Boo Fabric

Get ready to deck your haunted halls with a monstrously cute Halloween pillow project. Bring Dr. Frankenstein’s creation to life (in patchwork form!) with this easy-to-follow pattern that will have you in stitches. No tools for reanimation required – just some fabric, a sewing machine, and your wickedly creative spirit. I’m calling him “Frank.”

Pattern Tidbits

He’s sweet, right? The piecing is pretty basic but some of the pieces are small and there are a bunch to keep track of. Other than that, it comes together quicker than you’d expect. I’ve written this pattern to be finished as a pillow but you could also make a small wall hanging or even use the block in a quilt. The block technically finishes at 17″ square in the pattern so it can be made into the pillow – but is easy to trim to 16-1/2″ x 16-1/2″ (i.e. 16″ finished size) to match most of the other Hey Boo quilt pattern blocks. Because then it could be used as part of a Halloween sampler quilt – which I may or may not be stitching up as we speak. More on that soon.

    Vanessa, your ‘Frank’ Halloween pillow pattern is just adorable! I love how you’ve turned a classic Halloween character into such a charming quilt block. It’s great that the pattern is versatile enough for different projects.
