Here’s a little teaser about our “Winter 2021 Mystery Stitch-Along”.

We will start in mid-January 2021. It will give you time to put all those decorations away and finish off the fruitcake.

For this quilt I will be using woven fabrics from Diamond Textiles…deep blues and teals, putty grays and creams, golds and charcoal grays…very scrappy too! They are one of my favorite fabrics to use in a quilt. They are so soft and cozy.

I will share tips on working with woven while we work on this project. This quilt is going to have an “all over block” design and will finish at 60″ x 72″.

It is possible for a very confident beginner to tackle this quilt. The photos show you the fabrics that I am using and the supplies that I needed to complete the blocks.

If you are interested in ordering the fabric kit from our shop, please let me know ASAP so that I can get a stack of fabric ready for you. The kits are 37 fat quarters (subject to change- I’m still tweaking the design) and yardage for binding for around $150 plus tax and shipping. Contact us here to order.

So, let’s talk about what supplies you need. You probably have everything necessary to complete this quilt.

These items just make it so much easier:

The 4 1/2″ x 4 1/2″ ruler – I highly recommend this. I can order you one for $11.

The rotating cutting mat – makes squaring up the block easier.

Also pictured – BlocLoc 3 1/2″ Half Square Triangle $22. Nice but not necessary.

Best Press 2 or Best Press original – my preference but any spray starch will do.

Frixion pen – great for marking blocks.

Straight edge ruler 1 1/2″ x 6 1/2″ – used to draw lines on your blocks….any ruler will work.

Post-it notes – label the block parts.

Lint roller – you know what this is for…hopefully. Woven fabrics throw off lots of threads.

Wool pressing mat – holds those blocks in place when you press. I also like to use a smaller iron – you have more control when pressing the seams.

If you are interested in any of the “supplies” let me know. I’m so excited to start this new Mystery Trip with you. Take care!
