Happy Mother's Day!
Mother's are amazing, and we should celebrate our moms everyday, I hope you agree!
Mother's Day is a special day to really show our love and gratitude.
I want to take a moment and thank three mothers who have played important roles in my life -
my Mother, my Mother-in-love, and Mother Nature. Each so full of joy, light, beauty, and life,
these mothers have been constant inspirations for me in my daily life and with my quilting.
(My Mother-in Love, Carol)
Use this Mother's Day to do something special for the phenomenal mothers in your life.
I can't wait to pick up the phone and visit with my mother-in-love. She always showers me with her generosity, her kind words and support.
Just as she always surprises me, I have an amazing surprise for you -
a Spring Mystery Quilt, just in time for Mother's Day!
This new design will be SEW much fun, and a great skill builder.
As some of my most cherished memories are quilting with my mom,
now I hope to share a similar experience with you!
Are you ready for something new and exciting?
(Me and my momma, doing what we do best!)
We will be doing traditional piecing, a little bit English paper piecing, and appliqué. Not to spoil any surprises and reveal the mystery too early, but I am SEW happy to do this with you!
I can't wait to share with you one of my favorite techniques- Appliqué. With it, in just one little step,
we will elevate our quilts to something super special!
This Spring Mystery Quilt will be a weekly event - May 31st to July 13th.
This event is free to everyone, and everyone is welcome!
Make sure you SIGN UP for our newsletter so you can be up to date for this event,
and don't forget to tell your friends!
We will be making 5 block designs, each block repeating multiple times.
Don’t worry, we will share this information with you as we go, one step at a time.
On weeks 5 & 6 of our journey, I'll share with you how to put all your pieces together and
sprinkle in a little appliqué!
Quilt Info: • Quilt size is 53½" x 53½" finished • The quilt is made from four sections
But that's not all!
The best part is, you get to choose
from multiple color options, all of which will inspire you!
Fabric Requirements and Color Options
For this quilt you need:
14 medium/dark fabrics (Fat Quarters) and 1 light fabric (2½ yards).
We will be showing the quilt design in our Secret Garden Bundle option.
This option can be a example for your fabric choices.
You can choose fabrics from your own stash, or we have some options prepared just for you.
This is also the perfect opportunity to pick out some of your favorite
Fat Quarters from your Fabric Club bundles!
For my Spring Mystery Quilt, I will be using the Secret Garden Bundle and have paired it with
2½ yards of A-292-L for my background.
I thinks it's going to look sew cute!
We have a wonderful selection of bundles to choose from.
With each fabric bundle, you'll have the option to have me hand select your background fabric.
I'm getting excited just thinking about it!
These bundle options will open the door, allowing you to
personalize this project - put your own spin on this Spring adventure!
You only need to choose one color option bundle to make this quilt.
As I mentioned above, we will add a touch of Appliqué.
When we get to this step, you can use leftover pieces from you bundle, or...
If you don't want to cut your own Appliqué shapes, we have Appliqué Silhouette Shapes in
three different color options to match your bundle! Just choose your favorite.
You will need 2 packages of Silhouettes for one quilt.
(Just make sure you add them when shopping for your bundle.)
If you're want to cut your own appliqué,
In week 6, you will receive all the information about how many and which pieces you will need.
Be patient, it is worth the wait!
Supply List: (These notions are just my recommendations)
• Fabrics (I'm sew excited to see what fabric you choose!)
• Silhouettes, Stencil (Simple Shapes), or GO! Simple Shapes die
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 Spring Mystery Quilt Sewing Basket on the website for all your quilting needs!
This year, we will not be working with a Quilt Grid until towards the end.
We will start by building Blocks 1-4. Use your Fabric Markers to keep track of your blocks
as we go! Then once we get to Block 5, block placement and sashing pieces will be provided.
Please be patient as you complete your Blocks. Once again, I assure you it will be worth it!
Thank you to everyone who will be joining us!
I look forward to quilting away the Spring days and
cannot wait to share another original Laundry Basket Quilts design with you!
Thank you for your patience, participation, and kindness.
Each week we will be learning something fun and exciting -
come explore with me!
