Spring Mystery Quilt 2023 - Week 4

Come grow with me as a quilter this spring!

We'll wander through a garden of fabrics as we stitch together this mysterious pattern.

Watch your skills and techniques blossom on this quilting journey.

Let's unveil this mystery together!


As we continue to grow,

our buds begin to bloom some delicate diamond peonies!

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

joining me on our YouTube Channel for step by step instructions.

(Make sure you read through all of the instructions before you begin!)


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 4, you will need:

(These notions are just my recommendations)

Fabrics (2 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

Olfa Rotary and Blades

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

Sewline Fabric Pencil, Best Press, Pins, Scissors, and fresh Microtex Needles 70/10

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

Block Assembly

Arrange 1 Medium and 1 Dark strip to create a strip set.

Note: If your strips are not long enough to get all of your cuts from in the next steps, please just make 1 extra strip set.

Sew strips to create a strip set.

Align the 45˚ line on the ruler with the strip set edge and trim a 45˚ angle on the left side of the strip set.

Align the 2 ¼" line with this cut edge and the 45˚ line on the ruler on

one of the seams to cut the sections.

Cut 6 sections from each strip set for a total of 24, for four blocks.
