Mystery Quilt 2024 - Week 5

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 on this journey!

Let's unveil another piece of this mystery together.


You made it up the mountain, just as the sun begins to dip.

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


I will be using the Sunshine Yellow Roll.


But do not worry if you are not using this bundle,

I would love to still inspire you every week.

For Week 5, you will need:

(These notions are just my recommendations)

Fabrics

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 the sun rays shine on your face in this golden hour.



The Sun

10" x 10" finished


Note from Edyta: Feel free to use the image above for fabric placement inspiration!


Cutting Directions:

Cut in a variety of sun colors:

 Cut 20 - Template A (Paper, Creative Grids® 18 Degree Dresden Plate Quilt Ruler, or Sun Ray Acrylic Template) from 4¾" x 2½"

Block Assembly

Fold your pieces in half, right sides together. Straight stitch the top and the bottom. Turn the piece right side up, center top and bottom and press to create a unit shown in the picture above on the right side to create a ray unit.


For tips on this block, watch our Week 5 Tutorial Video.





Sew each ray unit into four sets of 5 as shown above by placing them right sides together and stitching them and pressing the seam allowance open.


Arrange 4 quarter units.


Sew quarter units into halves.


Sew halves together.


Arrange and appliqué to your mountain-scape.

This is a fun time to try machine or hand appliqué.



Golden hour is one of the prettiest hours of the day! Bask in your hard work and its shining outcome.

I'm daydreaming already about next week.

I'm looking for what to do about the hole in the center of the sun. Does it just stay open?

What do we do about the center of the sun? Appliqué that as well?

I think it is just to leave as is - open, it looks like she just does the same seam on the inside as the outside, by hand.
