Summer Mystery Quilt 2022 - Week 7

Updated: Jul 14, 2022

Hello Friends!

I'm happy to report, it's time to add

a little pop of color to our Summer Mystery Quilt!

For Block 7, you will need:

(These notions are just my recommendations)

Fabrics (1 dark fabric, 1 accent fabric, 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 yours often. for the cleanest cuts.

We will be making 12 total Block 7s.

Begin by cutting from 1 dark, 1 accent, and 1 light background fabric:

1 Light Background Fabric - 12 squares 4¼" x 4¼" and 48 squares 2" x 2"

1 Accent Fabric - 48 squares 2⅜" x 2⅜"

1 Dark Fabric - 12 center squares 3½" x 3½"

1 Light Background Fabric - 12 squares 5¾" x 5¾" and 48 squares 2¾" x 2¾"

1 Accent Fabric - 48 squares 3⅛" x 3⅛"

1 Dark Fabric - 12 center squares 5" x 5"

For 1 block, select 1 dark center square, 4 accent squares,

4 light background squares (2" x 2"), and 1 light background square (4¼" x 4¼") as shown above.

Place two accent squares (2⅜" x 2⅜") on opposite corners of the 4¼" x 4¼" light background square, right sides together.

For 9" finished block, place two accent squares (3⅛" x 3⅛") on opposite corners of the 5¾" x 5¾" light background square, right sides together.

Draw a diagonal line across your unit using your fabric pencil and a ruler.

Sew 1/4" away on both sides of diagonal line.

Cut along the line to create two units.

Press units open.

Place your next two accent squares on each open unit, as shown.

Align your ruler on the square and draw a diagonal line.

Sew on each side on the line, then cut on the line.

Repeat steps for both units.

Open all 4 units, pressing towards the accent fabric.

You have just created 4 flying geese units.

Please trim your flying geese to 2" x 3½".

For 9" finished block, please trim your flying geese to 2¾" x 5".

Now arrange your 4 flying geese around the dark center square with a 2" x 2" light background square in each corner to create a Sawtooth Star block.

Pin and sew into rows.

Sew rows together.

Press seam allowances open. Trim to 6½" x 6½" unfinished.

For 9" finished block, trim to 9½" x 9½" unfinished.

Repeat steps for a total of 12 Block 7s.

Our Block 7s will be positioned as shown above in our Summer Mystery Quilt 2022 grid.

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

Happy Quilting!

Although I’ve seen this method for making flying geese before, I was always afraid to try it. What was I thinking? Works like a dream!

Your instructions are so easy to follow. Your work is so precise all the seams are perfert. I'm in love with your work. Bravo!

Who doesn’t love a good mystery? Your quilt is not disappointing!

I have noticed this is the third time that you have not included your scrappy block at the end of the video. I am hoping you will reveal the completed top for this option as we all need scrap inspiration!
