We are off to such a good start, I have seen so many Mystery Quilt Block 1s are already made!
I know it was hard for you to cut into this beautiful Super Bloom fabric bundle, but I promise that you are going to love the results!
The most common question that we have received since we have started this Mystery Quilt is: “How much fabric do I need?”
I am estimating that you will need at least the following:
9 lights – 1/2 yard each
4 light blues – 1/2 yard each
5 dark blues – 1/2 yard each
5 pink – 1/2 yard each
OK – Let’s get back to quilting!
For block 2, you will need: (choose the fabrics shown above from your Super Bloom bundle)
Fat quarter of light blue fabric
10″ blue square
Fat quarter light fabric
We will be making 8 blocks. The cutting directions are listed below:
24 light half-square triangles cut from 12 squares 3-7/8″
8 blue half-square triangles cut from 4 squares 3-7/8″
8 blue half-square triangles cut from 4 squares 6-7/8″
To make half square triangle (HST) unit, join one 3-7/8″ light half-square triangle and one 3-7/8″ blue half-square triangle.
Trim HST unit to 3-1/2″ x 3-1/2″ using your ruler.
Arrange and sew 1 small 3-1/2″ HST unit and one 3-7/8″ light half-square triangle as shown.
Add second 3-7/8″ light half-square triangle as shown above.
Remember to pin before sewing and push your seam allowances towards the light triangles.
Arrange and sew large 6-7/8″ half-square triangle as shown.
Trim your bunny ears.
Press block open pushing your center seam allowance toward blue fabric.
Repeat until you have completed 8 Mystery Quilt Block 2s.
Our second blocks will be positioned as shown above in our Mystery quilt! Note position of blue fabrics in quilt layout.
Please DO NOT start sewing blocks together at this time. We need to complete all blocks before sewing them into a quilt top. We are only laying them out on our design wall at this point.
If you need a little extra help, be sure to visit the Laundry Basket Quilts YouTube Channel! We will be adding short videos of each block in the next couple days.
Happy Quilting! Edyta Sitar
