You’re just in time for a brand new mystery for Valentine’s Day and am excited to have you here with me on this fun journey! I am so excited about this quilt mystery! This is totally my own design based on some easy free patterns that I have adapted for this quilt. The quilt is very easy to do and has simple piecing and just a little applique for the borders. The quilt should measure about 43 x 47 and will have 16 blocks measuring 9 inch blocks.
I would post a picture of the quilt, but as it is not finished yet, we will have to wait. But here is a list of what you will need:
Two different white prints, 1/2 yard each
Assorted red and pink prints, 1/2 yard each or use stash scraps Plus extra for the border blocks
Green light-medium, 1/2 yard for applique on borders
Red or deep pink, 1/2 yard for applique on borders
Dark red for the inner border, 3/4 yards
Outer border for applique, not sure what color yet
Fusible webbing, paper-backed for applique
I will post links to the free patterns as we go along, mostly from quilterscache. I will also post step by step pictures as we go along for the cutting but not for the sewing, and will have pictures of the before block and finished block. Block patterns may be subject to change as we go along, as this is my first attempt at designing a mystery quilt, and want to allow for errors that may occur as we go along. All I ask for is a little patience with me.
I will be posting my color choices tomorrow morning as a guide.
Thank you for following along on this journey with me!
