Mystery Quilt 2020 – Block 8

Updated: Jun 24

Welcome to our Mystery Quilt! So many blocks are being made and so many wonderful quilting friends are joining us! Thank you for your participation, I am having so much fun with you all.

Are you feeling a little blue?

Maybe having a bit of cabin fever?

Missing your favorite neighbor?

Just pull out your sewing machine and start stitching with us!

If you are just getting started and looking for a color option other than Super Bloom, another one of our fabric collections, Bed of Roses, is a gorgeous alternative for this quilt. Or you could always simply pull matching fabrics from your fabric stash!

Lets get moving – it is time for our next block!

For Block 8, you will need: (choose the fabrics shown above from your Super Bloom bundle)

  1. 12″ blue square

  2. 12″ blue square

  3. 10″ blue square

  4. Fat quarter light fabric

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

NOTE : Please notice that some of your triangles are cut from half square triangles (HST) and some from quarter square triangles (QST).

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

  2. 32 light half-square triangles cut from 16 squares 3″

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

  4. 8 blue quarter-square triangles cut from 2 squares 5-1/2″

  5. 8 blue quarter-square triangles cut from 2 squares 5-1/2″

Arrange two light 3″ HST and one blue 5-1/2″ QST as shown.

Place light HST right sides together with blue QST as shown.

Sew using a 1/4″ seam allowance.

Press your seam allowance towards the blue triangle, I only finger press as to not stretch the bias edges.

Sew the second light HST triangle.

Press your seam allowance towards the light triangle. You have just completed your first Flying Geese unit!

Arrange and repeat all the steps from above to create another flying geese unit using the second blue QST.

You have completed your second Flying Geese unit.

Trim your Flying Geese units to 4-3/4″ x 2-5/8″ using your ruler.

Arrange your two Flying Geese units with one blue 3-7/8″ HST and one light 3-7/8″ HST as shown above.

Sew using a 1/4″ seam allowance. Press seams toward the outside.

Arrange your diagonal Flying Geese row with two light 3-7/8″ HST as shown above. Sew and press seams toward the outside.

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 8s.

Our eighth blocks will be positioned as shown above in our Mystery quilt, We are getting there! Do you have a favorite so far?

Please DO NOT start sewing blocks together at this time.
