Mystery Quilt 2020 – Block 11
Updated: Jun 23, 2021
Welcome back! I hope you had a relaxing weekend and are ready to jump back into quilting!
Your stack of blocks should really be growing now! I am so proud of everyone. I absolutely love seeing your pictures and the incredible progress you’ve made!
Let’s get to it!
This block has a few extra pieces and it can be easy to get confused. Please follow along and watch the layout of the block!
For block 11, you will need: (choose the fabrics shown above from your Super Bloom bundle)
12″ light square
10″ dark blue square
10″ light square
10″ light square
Fat eighth dark blue fabric
We will be making 4 blocks. The cutting directions are listed below:
4 light half-square triangles cut from 2 squares 2-3/8″
4 dark blue half-square triangles cut from 2 squares 2-3/8″
16 light half-square triangles cut from 8 squares 2-3/8″
12 dark blue half-square triangles cut from 6 squares 3-7/8″
4 light half-square triangles cut from 2 squares 3-7/8″
4 – 2″ x 2″ dark blue squares
4 – 3-1/2″ x 3-1/2″ light squares
It is important to do just one section at a time of this block. Let’s start with the unit shown above.
Start by making a dark blue half square triangle (HST) unit, join one 2-3/8″ light half-square triangle and one 2-3/8″ dark blue half-square triangle as shown above.
Press seam allowance toward the dark blue and trim the HST unit to 2″. I use my Creative Grids 4-1/2″ ruler.
Next sew two light 2-3/8″ HST to the initial unit. Press seams toward light.
Finally add dark blue 3-7/8″ HST as shown above.
Press seam toward dark blue and trim this unit to 3-1/2″ x 3-1/2″.
For the next unit, we will begin by arranging the dark 2″ square, two light 2-3/8″ HST, and 1 dark blue 3-7/8″ HST.
Start by sewing the two small light triangles to the dark blue square.
Push seam allowance toward the light triangles, then add the dark blue 3-7/8″ HST as shown above.
