Mystery Quilt 2020 – Block 3

Updated: Jun 24

I am so proud of all of you! You’re making great progress on your blocks and posting them for me to see! I love them all!

We are ready for our third block. I know, you think you’re seeing double, yes today’s block is the same pattern as yesterday, but with a different color blue for the little triangle and a slightly different light background.

Time to get started!

For block 3, you will need: (choose the fabrics shown above from your Super Bloom bundle)

  1. Fat quarter of light blue fabric

  2. 10″ blue square

  3. Fat quarter light fabric

We will be making 8 blocks. The cutting directions are listed below:

  1. 24 light half-square triangles cut from 12 squares 3-7/8″

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

  3. 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 the bunny ears.

Press block open pushing your center seam allowance toward blue fabric.

Finally square your blocks to 6-1/2″, I love using my 6-1/2″ Creative Grids ruler and OLFA Spinning Mat to trim these blocks.

Repeat until you have completed 8 Mystery Quilt Block 3s.

Our third blocks will be positioned as shown above in our Mystery quilt! Note position of blue fabrics in quilt layout.

I’m loving how this is turning out!

Maybe you’re wondering which fabrics we’ll be using next, I can’t wait until tomorrow, you’re going to love it!
