Our Summer Mystery Quilt 2022 has been such a good read so far -

I am so thankful to be able to share this with my quilting community!

For Block 8, you will need:

(These notions are just my recommendations)

Fabrics (1 medium 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 4 total Block 8s.







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

1 Medium Fabric - 3 strips each 2" x 20"

Just wondering.... Is this block supposed to have one instance reversed from the other instance in row 5? Should the two copies in that row be mirror images of each other? My brain is telling me that they should not be going the same direction, but the pattern is saying that they should both go the same direction. Which is correct?

If you divide the quilt top into four quarters, (they all match) with a central "plus sign", you can see the repeats. Hope this helps :)
