Welcome to the first month of the first ever Create with Claudia Mystery Quilt Along. I hope you have a great time and that you love the quilt you make! Here are the January mystery block instructions.
We are kicking things off with an easy nine patch that will measure 6 ½ inches by 6 ½ inches square. You are going to need eight total. Don’t worry though. It may sound like a lot, but these blocks go together in no time.
Are you excited? I know I am. There is only one month to go before the first-ever Create with Claudia Mystery Quilt Along begins. I’ve been working hard to get everything ready, and that includes my quilt along fabric pull.
I saw these bright and cheerful fabrics on line at the Fat Quarter Shop, and immediately fell in love with them. I knew that they would be perfect for this quilt along.
Not being able to resist any of them, I ended up buying the bundle, adding the navy floral print, and finishing off my choices by including the simple off-white with the mini green dot for the background fabric.
Because I didn’t need as much fabric as I had purchased, I ended up with plenty left over in some of the colors, but that is ok, I can make a scrap quilt with them.
It’s the end of November, and that means that it is almost time for the mystery quilt along to start. I’m pretty excited, and I’ve picked out my fabrics. Have you? Here is what you need to know.
How it Works and What You Will Need
Welcome to the first ever Create with Claudia Mystery Quilt Along. Since it is my first one, I am keeping it fairly simple and traditional, so it is good for beginners as well as more experienced quilters.
A new block will be published at the beginning of every month for the first eleven months of the year. The final month will be the quilt top assembly instructions. There will be multiples of the block needed for almost every month. Don’t worry though, the more that are needed, the easier they are to assemble.
Because some people like to look at patterns and some people like to use video tutorials, I’ll be giving you both. Each month I will be doing a blog post which will include the pattern. In addition, I will be uploading a video tutorial on my YouTube channel.
I’ll be sending out the tutorial to my email subscribers, so be sure to subscribe so you don’t miss out on a month.
Also, if you would like, head over to facebook and join my facebook group that is just for this quilt along. You’ll be able to get the latest updates and see what other people are doing to!
It’s hard for me to believe that January 2020 will mark the one year anniversary of the Create with Claudia website. To celebrate, I am excited to announce that I will be hosting my first ever mystery quilt along. The plan is that it will be a monthly event that should start at the beginning of the year.
Since it’s my first time doing something like this, I will be keeping it simple and on the traditional side. The blocks will be suitable for beginners, but also fun for people with any skill level. It will also be a scrap-friendly pattern, which is my favorite kind of look.
Written and video instructions will be provided. For many of the months you will need to sew multiples of the block. But don’t worry, the block for those months will be easy, and should come together quickly.
In the next few months I will be rolling out the details, along with a few clues to help you out. After that, we should be ready to get started.
This mystery quilt along is purely for fun and entertainment purposes. There will not be any prizes or giveaways.
I can’t wait to see what people come up with!
