Halloween Table Runner to Decorate Your Space with Spooky Fun

Spooky Fun Halloween Table Runner

styled halloween table runner

designed by Melanie Call, a Bit of Scrap Stuff

Create a Halloween table runner that’s perfect for decorating your space for spooky fun. This table runner features fussy cut Halloween motifs, but any fun fabric will do for the block creation. Note: If fussy cutting or working with a directional print, more fabric may be needed.

Finished size: 17 1/2″ by 37 1/2″
Grab the instructions for this fun Halloween table runner on the quilting free projects page. Download and print them for future reference, if you like! The piecing comes together rather quickly, leaving you time to plan fun quilting designs. Choose a stippling stitch, an end-to-end quilting design or quilt in the ditch of the block seams using Sulky 50 wt. Cotton Thread for a nearly invisible, strong stitch.

See project instructions download for cutting instructions.


To create a table runner that’s extra “spooky,” use a striped fabric for the binding, and then cut it on the cross-grain or bias. The featured black and white striped fabric really adds a spooky touch to the finished table runner.

Try quilting with Sulky Poly Sparkle Thread. This 30 wt. Thread is polyester but has flecks of metallic running through it. Pair it with a 90/14 Organ® Needle for best results. Grab a Haunting Halloween 6-pack Sampler or Ultimate Halloween 12-pack of Poly Sparkle Thread to have all the great Halloween-themed colors ready for stitching.
