I designed “Meadow Breeze” as a Mystery Block of the month. The quilt is both appliqué and pieced and finished to a 36″ square.. perfect to hang on the wall or use as an accent on a nice big table!
This is our first block, the heart. I really love asymmetrical appliqué and the organic twiggy shape of this block.
For my project I’m using all my 40 wt Thread Art kit colors for the appliqué and the piecing… let’s take a look!
I selected 3 colors (my names for them!)
- Olive Green – 5013
- Caramel – 2210
- Pear Green – 1147
Caramel is my ‘go to’ color for the lights in this project… see how it works on the pieces above.. either blends in or is a nice light accent.
I’m using heat n bond light with the center cut out and then the blanket stitch to appliqué down the pieces. If you are not familiar with this method, see my book ‘Learn to appliqué’ for how I do fusible and keep the shapes as soft as possible by cutting away.. plus it’s economical as you don’t waste fusible!

Love it! Downloaded the PDF and will start work on it today. I can’t wait for the next block. I love Mystery quilts. They are so much fun
Too cool….gotta do….. 🙂 Thanks, Pat! and Aurifil, too!
Thank you so much for this, love it. I have printed out block one and now will shop my stash for fabric to use – I already have a perfect fabric to use as the background..
Please enter my name in the iron V100 give
away. I am so hard on irons…would like to
find one that helps me be a better quilter.
I like the well pressed look, that I haven’t achieved
yet. Thanks, Lois from Kansas
Great block, Pat! I am excited to work along with you!
Love the first block!
Love this block. I’m in!
