Mystery Quilt 2022 - Block 5

Welcome to Block 5 of our Mystery Quilt 2022!

We are moving along and learning so many wonderful things about other shapes in quilting

than squares and HSTs. I know sometimes it's scary to try new things, and you might be worried if you have enough fabric or what is happening tomorrow, but trust me. If you just take a moment, slow down,

be patient, enjoy today and the moment you are in, something new will blossom from

you taking the time. Lets spread love and kindness and get creative together.

Below is all the information you need to prepare before joining

me on our YouTube Channel for step by step instructions.

For Block 5, you will need:

2 light fabrics (Make sure that your pick two light fabrics that are very similar in hue. Please do not stress about having two fabrics- this is just a light background and it will add a little fun feel to your quilt.)

1 blue fabric

Creative Grids® ALASKA Ruler -or- Mystery Templates B and I

Block 5A Block 5B


Block 5


We will be making 8 Block 5As and 8 Block 5Bs for a total of 16 blocks.


Cutting Directions:

Begin by cutting strips:

Light fabric - 3 strips 6½" x 20" (2 from the top floral fabric and 1 strip from bottom light fabric.)

Blue fabric - 2 strips 3½" x 20"

For both cutting options (ruler or templates), please start by placing your

light strips right sides together as shown above. Please watch our video for guidance.


Cutting with Creative Grids® ALASKA Ruler:

Position your ruler matching the bottom edge of your fabric with the 6-1/2" mark on the ruler.

Pay attention that the width of your strip measure 2-3/4".

For more instructions, I highly recommend watching our YouTube video for Block 5.




Cut as shown.









Rotate your cutting board

and trim the edge as shown.






With every cut, you will get two pieces. One for Block 5A and one for Block 5B.

(Once you finish cutting from your first light fabric, use your second light fabric to finish cutting.

Do not forget to place the fabric right sides together before cutting.)

Cut a total of 8 sets.

For the blue fabric, align your ruler and cut as shown above.


From one strip of blue fabric, you should be able to get 8 pieces.

Cut both strips for a total of 16 blue pieces.


Alternative way of cutting with the Mystery Template B and I:



Position Template I on the fabric strips.

(Please remember, your light strips should be right sides together.)








Use your Template I to cut your

pieces from the light fabric strip

as shown in the picture.





With every cut, you will get two pieces. One for Block 5A and one for Block 5B.

(Once you finish cutting from your first light fabric, use your second light fabric to finish cutting.

Do not forget to place the fabric right sides together before cutting.)

Cut a total of 8 sets.

For the blue fabric, align your Template B and cut as shown above.


From one strip of blue fabric, you should be able to get 8 pieces.

Cut both strips for a total of 16 blue pieces.


Block Assembly

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

They are the perfect tool to help you precisely mark your sewing points.

Arrange your pieces as shown above.

Pin light and blue pieces right sides together and sew.

Press your seams and use your templates or ruler to trim.

Watch our video for more details.
