Mystery Quilt 2022 - Housekeeping
Welcome to our Mystery Quilt 2022!
Life can be restless and stormy sometimes. Find soloace in quilting.
Join us for 14 days of non-stop smooth sailing.
Before we begin, I just wanted to check in with everyone to make sure you're all ready to go!
Gather up the rest of your supplies and make sure you've signed up with our Newsletter
and subscribed the LBQ YouTube Channel!
Here’s a list of everything you will need: (These notions are just my recommendations)
• Olfa Rotary and Blades
Edyta’s Tip: Always have a stash of fresh blades for your rotary and remember to change yours often
for the cleanest cuts.
• Aurifil Thread – 2310 recommended
• Pins, scissors, and fresh Microtex Needles 70/10
• Mystery 2022 Templates or Creative Grids® ALASKA Ruler
Edyta’s Tip: I use my 4-1/2″ x 12-1/2″ ruler to first cut the fabric and then use either the
Creative Grids® ALASKA Ruler -or- Mystery 2022 Templates to cut parfect shapes.
(Choose one, you do not need both)
Bluebird fat quarter bundle -or- your own fabrics
(You will need 12 fat quarters in blue and 8 fat quarters in light)
Edyta’s Tip: I like to press all my fat quarter ahead of cutting. I use Best Press for a nice, crisp finish!
A-9850-B: 1 yard total light fabric for background.
A-9848-LB: 1 yard total for simple corners to achieve original quilt size -or- 3 yards total if you
want to add a border to your quilt (finished quilt size with border is 70½" x 70½").
A-9845-B: 2/3 yard fabric for binding -or- there will be a few scraps left over from the Bluebird fat
quarter bundle that can be used for a scrappy binding.
I am so looking forward to quilting with you! Please lets be kind, this is a free event, and please remember I am doing my best to provide you with all the information to show you how I made my quilt.
Everyone is welcome to join us, there are no boundaries on this project.
You are the one that has to say "I can do it"!
Let’s breakdown how the 14 days of this event will go:
Each day will begin with an instructional blog post for that Block followed by
the Block’s instructional step-by-step video on our YouTube Channel.
I will provide cutting directions for both the Creative Grids® ALASKA Ruler and Mystery 2022 Templates in the blogs and videos. Please only follow the directions for whichever tool you choose to use.
For the placement of our Blocks, we will be using a quilt grid that will progressively fill with each day, ultimately revealing the Mystery 2022 Quilt! I am SEW excited!
Above is your blank, starting grid. This year, I chose something super special for you guys!
We will be using the above grid for the layout of our Blocks.
We will be making enough Blocks to make 8 identical sections.
At the end of our Mystery, I will show you how to sew your sections
together and add the finishing pieces to this beautiful kaleidoscope quilt.
Please be patient as you complete your Blocks.
Once you are all set and ready to begin your Block for the day, switch over to our YouTube Channel,
and I will walk you through all the sewing, trimming, pressing instructions and so much MORE.
Excited to share this Mystery 2022
quilting experience with you!
