Welcome back to our Mystery Quilt Along! I am so excited to share another block with you today. You are making such amazing progress! If you would like some of your blocks features on our blog, please share them with us via email.
This may be my favorite block! Are you ready?
For Block 7, you will need: (choose the fabrics shown above from your Super Bloom bundle)
Fat 1/8 pink fabric
12″ light square
Fat quarter light fabric
We will be making 8 blocks. The cutting directions are listed below:
32 light half-square triangles cut from 16 squares 3-7/8″
32 pink half-square triangles cut from 16 squares 3″
8 light squares 3-1/2″
Arrange 4 pink triangles with a square in the center as shown above.
Sew two triangles on opposite sides. Remember to center them and pin. Push the seam allowances toward the square.
Add remaining pink triangles on opposite sides. Press and push the seam allowances toward the pink triangles. Watch our YouTube video for more tips about pressing and sewing.
Trim this unit to 4-3/4″ x 4-3/4″ using your ruler.
Arrange and sew 4 light half square triangles around the center unit as shown above.
Trim your your block to 6-1/2″. I use my 6-1/2″ Creative Grids ruler.
Repeat until you have completed 8 Mystery Quilt Block 7s.
Our seventh blocks will be positioned as shown above in our Mystery quilt! We are almost halfway through! What do you think?
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.
Last night I had the chance to catch a sunset, I wish you were here!
We are hoping to get a little bit more of our Super Bloom fabrics! At this time we still have Charm Packs and Jelly Rolls.
Happy Quilting! Edyta Sitar
