Boo to You Mystery Quilt {Week 1}

Hi there! Are you guys ready to kick off our newest Mystery Quilt?!  I am excited to share this quilt with you guys! It is perfect for Halloween and I know you guys will love it! :) 

If you are following along on instagram - use #bootoyoumysteryquilt so we can see your progress!


A few things before we begin: 

  • Please read ALL instructions before starting.
  • Please measure twice and cut once - I have made the cutting instructions very specific  - and there IS NOT a lot of room for cutting errors - so PLEASE BE CAREFUL!
  • I am posting the blocks for the quilt in no particular order - to keep this EXTRA MYSTERIOUS! 
  • Accuracy is KEY!  This quilt requires you to be very accurate with your piecing - A 1/4" quilting foot is recommended for piecing.  
  • I have made the entire quilt already (and it is sooo cute!!) - and so all blocks and piecing have been tested. 
  • This is all about having fun!! This was a joy to design and it was even more fun piecing this quilt! I can't wait for the final reveal! 
Alright, I think you guys are ready to get started!

First, I have included a cutting sheet.  This sheet is cutting for the ENTIRE QUILT.  It is very helpful if you mark all your pieces with the letters I have assigned each piece.  Please measure twice and cut once! There is nothing worse than making a cutting mistake! So pay careful attention please!

Where do we see the list of amounts of fabrics needed? I have never done anything like this and have been wanting to do a quilt, so, I am super excited to give this a try. I love fall and Halloween so, this should be great. I would like to get fabrics as soon as possible because I have a new machine and really wanting to give it a go! Thank you!!
