Spring Mystery Quilt 2023 - Week 5

Come grow with me as a quilter this spring!

Let us 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!


Now we're in full BLOOM!

Look at how you flourish and flower so beautifully,

I am SEW proud of you!

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

(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 5, you will need:

(These notions are just my recommendations)

Fabrics (5 medium/dark pieces)

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

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

• Aurifil Thread – 2312 or 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.

• English piecing shapes 7/8" Hexagons

• Charm Template 7/8" Hexagon

• Hand sewing needles

• Sewline Fabric Glue Pencil

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


Get your hands dirty in our quilting garden with English paper Piecing!



Block 5


We will be making a total of 12

Grandmother's Flower Block 5s.

3 color options, 4 blocks of each color.

4 of fabric A

4 of fabric B

4 of fabric C





Cutting Directions:


Cutting directions for 12 blocks:

Accent Fabric: 2 - 2" x 20½" strips

Medium Fabric A: 3 - 2" x 20½" strips

Medium Fabric B: 3 - 2" x 20½" strips

Dark Fabric C: 3 - 2" x 20½" strips

Note: If your acrylic template has a slightly bigger seam allowance, make sure you cut your strips a little bit wider to accommodate your template.


Block Assembly

From strips with templates, cut hexagons.


Accent Fabric: 12 hexagons

Medium Fabric A: 24 hexagons

Medium Fabric B: 24 hexagons

Dark Fabric C: 24 hexagons


Prepare you hexagons for English Paper Piecing. I am using Charm Hexagons LBQ-0453-C


For one flower, you will need 1 center hexagon, and 6 petal hexagons.


For detailed instructions, watch our YouTube video.




Block Assembly

Take a center hexagon and place it right sides together with a petal hexagon.

Then using a simple whip stitch, cotton thread, and hand sewing needle (or embroider),

sew your pieces together.


Finish by sewing all remaining hexagons together to create a flower.


Repeat steps for a total of 12 blocks. 3 color options, 4 of each color.


Watch our YouTube Channel for step-by-step instructions.


Congratulations, your Grandmother's Flower blocks are are in full bloom!

Wasn't that fun and easy? I'm so proud of you.

Our garden is continuing to grow!




INSPIRING COLOR OPTIONS





These are just a few of our fabric options- I can't wait to see what you create!


I look forward to show you next week on how to put all your blocks together.


Happy Quilting!

I have 3/4" hexy papers that I will use, slightly smaller. I don't know where she is going to place the flowers, but I figured I would go a little smaller than a little bigger (I have the 1" hexy papers too, but I don't have 7/8")
