Mystery Quilt 2020 – Block 14

Updated: Jun 24

Welcome back to our Mystery Quilt and I’m so glad that you took the time to join us!

We had such a beautiful sunny day her and I just wanted to take a minute to wish Happy Birthday to my husband Michael.

He has been helping me so much to bring this mystery quilt to all of you!

Speaking of which – let’s get to our next block!

For block 14, you will need: (choose the fabrics shown above from your Super Bloom bundle)

  1. 12″ light square

  2. 10″ dark blue square

  3. 10″ light square

  4. 10″ light square

  5. Fat eighth dark blue fabric

If you remember our block 11 – this block is the mirror image of that block.

We will be making 4 blocks. The cutting directions are listed below:

  1. 4 light half-square triangles cut from 2 squares 2-3/8″

  2. 4 dark blue half-square triangles cut from 2 squares 2-3/8″

  3. 16 light half-square triangles cut from 8 squares 2-3/8″

  4. 12 dark blue half-square triangles cut from 6 squares 3-7/8″

  5. 4 light half-square triangles cut from 2 squares 3-7/8″

  6. 4 – 2″ x 2″ dark blue squares

  7. 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.

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 blue 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.

Press seam allowance toward dark blue and trim this unit to 3-1/2″ x 3-1/2″.

Arrange and sew 1 light 3-7/8″ HST and 1 dark blue 3-7/8″ HST. Press seam allowance toward the blue and trim to 3-1/2″ x 3-1/2″.

Arrange all 3 units and 1 light 3-1/2″ x 3-1/2″ square as shown above.

Sew to rows, then sew rows together. Press and trim to 6-1/2″ x 6-1/2″ using your Creative Grids 6-1/2″ ruler.

Our fourteenth blocks will be positioned as shown above in our Mystery Quilt! Notice the rotation of this block around the quilt.

WOW, I am so proud of all of you! So many blocks made and only 1 block left.

Frost by Laundry Basket Quilts

All this practice making triangle units has prepared you for quilts like “Frost”. I think it would look beautiful in fabrics from our Super Bloom collection.
