Welcome to Block 9 of our Mystery Quilt 2022!
Thank you for joining me. You guys are amazing
and I appreciate you SEW much!
Below is all the information you need to prepare before joining
me on our YouTube Channel for step by step instructions.
For Block 9, you will need:
• 1 light fabric
• 1 blue fabric
• 1 light fabric
• Creative Grids® ALASKA Ruler -or- Mystery Template B
We will be making 16 total Block 9s.
Begin by cutting strips:
• Light fabric - 4 strips 3½" x 20"
• Light fabric - 2 strips 3½" x 20"
• Blue fabric - 2 strips 3½" x 20"
Cutting with Creative Grids® ALASKA Ruler or Mystery Template B:
Align your ruler or template B and cut using your skills from Block 3.
From one strip of fabric, you should be able to get 8 pieces.
Light fabric - 32 pieces total
Light fabric - 16 pieces total
Blue fabric - 16 pieces total
Edyta's Tip: Keep your ruler or templates handy after cutting.
They are the perfect tool to help you precisely mark your sewing points.
First mark your 1/4" sewing points, then arrange your pieces with two matching light pieces on the top,
the blue piece in the middle, and a light piece on the bottom as shown above.
Position the blue piece over the light piece right sides together.
Press your seam open.
Place the light piece over the unit right sides together.
Position and sew second light piece right sides together as shown above.
Watch our video for more details.
Use your template A or ruler to trim.
