Welcome to Block 4 of our Mystery Quilt 2022!

I am so proud of you. You are doing such a great job on your blocks and learning something new everyday. I can't wait to share with you what I have prepared for today!

Below is all the information you need to prepare before joining

me on our YouTube Channel for step by step instructions.

For Block 4, you will need:

1 light fabric

1 light blue fabric

Creative Grids® ALASKA Ruler -or- Mystery Template J and K


Block 4A Block 4B



Block 4


We will be making 8 Block 4As and 8 Block 4Bs.


Cutting Directions:

These cutting instructions are ONLY for Creative Grids® ALASKA Ruler:

Begin by cutting strips:

Light fabric - 2 strip 4½" x WOF from this strip, cut 8 rectangles 4½" x 6½"

Light blue fabric - 2 strips 6½" x 20" from these strips, cut 10 rectangles 6½" x 3"


These cutting instructions are ONLY for Mystery 2022 Templates:

Begin by cutting strips:

Light fabric - 1 strip 6½" x WOF

Light blue fabric - 2 strips 6½" x 20"


Cutting with Creative Grids® ALASKA Ruler:

First, arrange by alternating 5 light blue rectangles and 4 light rectangles to create a panel.

Sew rectangles together and press your seam allowances open.

Repeat to make a total of 2 panels.



Align your ruler and cut.

We will start by cutting Block 4A.

Pay attention that the center line of your

ruler is 1/2" away from the seam.





Flip your ruler over, align it on the

fabric and again cut. You will cut 8 pieces from your first panel.

Then proceed to cutting your Block 4B from the second panel.

Make sure that your light blue fabric is now

on the left side of the unit.






You will have a total of

8 Block 4As and 8 Block 4Bs.

Watch our video for more detailed instructions.








Cutting with the Mystery Templates J and K:




Place your light fabric strip right sides together.








Position your Template J on the light

fabric as shown and cut.







Rotate your Template J to cut again.

Repeat for a total 8 sets.







With every cut, you will get a left and a right piece for Block 4A and Block 4B.







Place your light blue fabric strip

right sides together.







Position your Template K on the

light blue fabric as shown and cut.







Rotate your Template K to cut again.

Repeat 8 times.

With every cut, you will get a left and a right piece for Block 4A and Block 4B.





Block Finishing

These steps are required for Mystery Templates ONLY


Edyta's Tip: Keep your ruler or templates handy after cutting.

They are the perfect tool to help you precisely mark your fabric cuts!

Arrange your pieces J and K as shown above to create one Block 4B.

Place your pieces right sides together. Align the bottom edge.

Pin and sew.

Press seams towards the light blue fabric. Repeat steps to create 8 Block 4Bs.

Then proceed to making 8 Block 4As. Use your Template A or ruler to trim all units.
