Semi improv 9-patch mystery quilt tutorial

With this post I start a semi improv 9 patch mystery quilt series of tutorials consisting of 12 x 12 1/2 inch improv patchwork blocks.

Why semi improv and not just improv patchwork?

The reason for the “semi” part is that the quilt starts with 6 traditional blocks, all of them a variation of churn dash or monkey wrench. Then after 2 improv patchwork iterations we obtain 12 improv patchwork blocks.

The size of the quilt is approximately 36 1/2 in x 48 1/2 in.

Materials

  • 1 charm pack (a charm pack contains typically  42 x 5 in squares)
  • cream cotton fabric for the background*
  • cotton solids scraps in matching colours
  • fabric for the backing (the backing will use some 5 in squares and background fabric)

* I cannot give you an exact amount of background fabric I used. I have several metres of Moda Bella snow and I just keep using it in my projects as I make them.

Next post block 1.

If you make this quilt you can post pictures on the Semi-improv 9-patch quilt pool.
