Summer Mystery Quilt 2022 - Week 6

Welcome back to our

Are you ready to spread your wings and try new things?

For Block 6, you will need:

(These notions are just my recommendations)

Fabrics (2 dark and 1 light background)

• Aurifil Thread – 2370 recommended

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

Block 6A Left Block 6A Right Block 6B Left Block 6B Right


We will be making 16 total Block 6s.

4 Blocks 6A Left, 4 Blocks 6A Right, 4 Blocks 6B Left, 4 Blocks 6B Right.


Begin by cutting from 2 dark fabrics and 1 light fabric:

Dark Blue Fabric - 4 squares 9½" x 9½"

Light Background Fabric - 8 squares 9½" x 9½"

Dark Brown Fabric - 4 squares 9½" x 9½"


Dark Blue Fabric - 4 squares 12½" x 12½"

Light Background Fabric - 8 squares 12½" x 12½"

Dark Brown Fabric - 4 squares 12½" x 12½"

Take a dark blue fabric square and a light background fabric square and place them right sides together.

Keep the light fabric on the top, and with a fabric pencil, draw a diagonal line.

Sew on each side of the line staying 1/4" away from it.

Finish by cutting on the line to create 2 Half Square Triangles (HSTs).

Press towards dark fabric and trim your 8 HSTs to 9".

Separate your HSTs into 2 sets of 4 as shown above.

(1 set is for Block 6A Left and 1 set for the Block 6A Right)


For a 9" block, Trim your HSTs to 12".

Separate your HSTs into 2 sets of 4.

(1 set is for Block 6A Left and 1 set for the Block 6A Right)


We will be working with first 4 HSTs. Work on each HST individually.

Position your HST as shown in the picture above. Then section into six 1½" strips.


For 9" finished block, position your HST as shown in the picture above. Then section into six 2" strips.

Each strip will be trimmed as shown in the picture above for both the 6" block and 9" block.


Put a little magic spin on your block by rotating all your strips.

Your strips should now look like the image above on the right.

Set them to the side while you cut the remaining set of HSTs to create 4 Blocks 6A Right.


Select and position your HST as shown above, then section into six 1½" strips.


For 9" finished block, position your HST as shown in the picture above. Then section into six 2" strips.


Each strip will be trimmed as shown in the picture above for both the 6" block and 9" block.


Now don't forget the magic spin!

Use fabric markers to keep your Block 6A sets organized while you cut 6B Left and Right.


Follow the same steps above with the dark brown and light fabric for Blocks 6B Left and Right.

(Browse the slide show for a quick guide or check out our Block 6 video HERE)


I'm SEW excited, lets SEW!

Arrange your strips for 1 block.

Place strips right sides together and pin.

Sew into sets of two strips.

Sew into full block.

Press seam allowances towards dark and trim to 6½" x 6½".


For 9" finished block, press seam allowances towards dark and trim to 9½" x 9½".


Repeat to make a total of 4 Blocks 6A Left and 4 Blocks 6A Right.

Repeat to make a total of 4 Blocks 6B Left and 4 Blocks 6B Right.


Our Blocks 6A Left and Right and Blocks 6B Left and Right will be positioned

as shown above in our Summer Mystery Quilt 2022 grid.






(To make a scrappy option for this block,

you need to create a variety of triangles and mix and match the pieces or use big print fabrics.)




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

Warning: The directions for cutting are wrong for the second block. The bottom directions say cut

2 -- 21/2 --1/2-- 1-- 11/2 ...................

It should read 2 1/2 -- 2 -- 1 1/2 -- 1 --1/2
