Mystery Quilt 2024 - Week 1

Come on this adventure with me through fields of fabric and let's learn and play together. I am sew thankful to have you with me as we begin this journey!

Let's unveil this mystery together!

To begin, let's dip our toes in a river of scraps.

Below is all the information you need to prepare and cut your fabric for this week.

I will be using the River Blue Roll.

But do not worry if you are not using this bundle, you can use your own scraps,

and I would love to still inspire you every week.

For Week 1, you will need:

(These notions are just my recommendations)


Sew Daisy Fabric Markers (Use fabric markers to stay organized)

• Creative Gird Ruler: 4½" x 12½"

• Aurifil Thread – 2370 recommended

Edyta’s Tip: Always have a stash of fresh blades for your rotary and remember to change yours often. for the cleanest cuts.

Check out our Mystery Quilt 2024 Sewing Basket on the website for all your quilting needs!

Let's dive right in and splash in the refreshing scraps!

The River

11" x 58½" unfinished

Cutting Directions:

Cut in a variety of watery colors:

18 - 1½" x 6½" rectangles for Unit A

25 C - 2½" x 6½" rectangles

  2 D - 2½" x 4½" rectangles

 •   2 E - 2½" x 3½" rectangles

 2 - 1½" x 7½" rectangles for Unit B

  1 F - 2½" x 7½" rectangle

  1 - 3" x 58½" pieced sashing strip

(This is a perfect time to pull your favorite greens from your stash to create this pieced sashing strip for the river edge, or if you feel the grass is greener at Laundry Basket Quilts,

heres the link to the green fabric I'll be using!)

Block Assembly

Select eighteen 1½" x 6½" and two 1½" x 7½" strips in a variety of blues and sew into pairs.

Press. Make 9 A - 2½" x 6½" units and 1 B- 2½" x 7½"pair.

Arrange and assemble Unit A, Unit B, C, D, E, and F rectangles into rows.

Don't be afraid to make some waves and float down the lazy river with your scraps!

Finish sewing your units into rows, keeping the 3" x 58½" pre-pieced sashing strip on the bottom.

Sew rows together and press.

What a refreshing start! I'm proud of how you dove right in!

Dry off and let's adventure again next week.
