Edyta Sitar’s “Mystery Quilt 2020” Finished!

I am so excited to show you my rendition of a mystery quilt designed by Edyta Sitar of Laundry Basket Quilts! You can order a pattern for “California” here.

Edyta’s pink and blue fabrics are from her line, “Super Bloom.” However, I translated the instructions to red and brown and used the “Ruby” fabric line designed by Bonnie Sullivan, manufactured by Maywood Studio. The prints and textures are elegant yet comforting and homey. Hubby gives this quilt a thumbs up.

Beginning in late March, Edyta posted daily clues for making the 100 blocks. We were instructed to make 4, 8, or 16 blocks for each of 15 days, and Edyta included a diagram which showed where the blocks fit into the finished quilt. I am so happy I joined in this mystery quilt along. Knowing a clue would be waiting in my inbox each morning gave me something to look forward to while sheltering at home during the COVID-19 epidemic.

If you find yourself with time on your hands and are interested in joining a Quilt Along, I invite you to check out the “Sisters” block of the month on this blog. Just click the tab in the menu to find links for the block instructions. For additional QAL designs,  search for “letsquiltalong” on Instagram; hundreds are listed. Quilting along with others and showing my progress pictorially encourages me to keep sewing and gives me a feeling of accomplishment when I am finished.
