The mystery embroidery quilt along – Block 2

Hey There

 It is already february that means is time to release the second block of ‘The mystery embroidery quilt along’. (Did you mis the first block? (you can find it here).

It took al little longer than planned to upload the second block because my husband and I bought a new house. What is very exciting and a lot of fun! but olso means that i’m very busy 🙂 But the next block will be announced by the 14th of february, so that means that there will be 2 blocks this month because we have a little catch up to do.

Last couple of days it was very cold in the Netherlands and  it even snowed for a few days. Everting was looking very beutiful and it was really nice to be outside.

For this second block I design a nice winter landscape, with a cute little snow man. After the information about the block sizes you find the embroidery file and the instructions

Block size

The fun part of ‘the mystery quilt along’ is that you can adjust the block sizes to you wishes. You can add borders or maybe you want to combin the blocks with other quilting bloks, the decision is yours.  I’ll show you a couple of options but feel free to adjust them.

If you figured out which size you want to make your blocks you calucolator how much fabric you need,

Optie 1. rectangles. (without seam allowens)

For example, you can choose to process the blocks as rectangles. In the examples below I have not (yet) added any borders

 

Option 2.

A second option is to process the blocks as sesquare.
