Spring Mystery Quilt 2023 - Week 2

Thank you all for taking the time to come and blossom as a quilter with me.

I am SEW excited to show you our next block! It is SEW cute!

Below is all the information you need to prepare and cut your fabric before


I will be using the Secret Garden Bundle + 2½ yards of A-292-L

in all my pictures to show you the step by step.


But do not worry if you are not using this bundle, I would love to still inspire you every week,

by sharing multiple color options for the fun and simple blocks.

You can use those color options as inspiration for placement of your fabrics.


For Week 2, you will need:

(These notions are just my recommendations)

Fabrics (4 medium/dark pieces) and 1 light background

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

• Creative Gird Rulers: 4½" x 12½" and 6½" square

• Aurifil Thread – 2312 or 2325 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 Spring Mystery Quilt Sewing Basket on the website for all your quilting needs!


Lets watch our first flower buds bloom as your quilting garden grows.

My, I’ve learned the importance of precision with tiny pieces; how quickly you can end up with a block 4.5 by 4.45 (here’s hoping it hides in a future seam; or maybe later on I’ll have enough fabric remaining to resew a section. )

12 - 2½" x 4 ½" rectangles (2 rectangles from each color)

This should read "4 rectangles from each color".


A beautiful block!
