Welcome to Block 3 of our Mystery Quilt 2022!
I am so thankful to be quilting with you.
Hoping you have a wonderful, sunny day today!
Below is all the information you need to prepare before joining
For Block 3, you will need:
• 1 dark blue fabric
• 1 light blue fabric
• 1 light fabric
We will be making 16 total Block 3s.
Begin by cutting strips:
• Light blue fabric - 4 strips 3½" x 20"
• Dark blue fabric - 2 strips 3½" x 20"
• Light fabric - 2 strips 3½" x 20"
From one strip of fabric, you should be able to get 8 pieces.
Light blue fabric - 32 pieces total (4 strips)
Dark blue fabric - 16 pieces total (2 strips)
Light fabric - 16 pieces total (2 strips)
They are the perfect tool to help you precisely mark your sewing points.
First mark your 1/4" points and arrange your pieces: dark blue piece on the top,
light fabric piece in the middle, and a light blue piece on each side.
Position the dark blue piece over the light fabric piece right sides together.
Press your seam open.
Place the light blue piece over the unit right sides together.
Press your seam towards the light blue.
Position and sew second light blue piece as shown above.
16 Block 3s
Our Block 3s will be positioned as shown above in our Mystery Quilt 2022 grid.
Just a reminder, we will be making 8 identical grid sections like this.
