Disney Mystery Quilt - Block 1

Here we are! The first block of my Mystery Quilt.

The first block is The Tower

You can find the pattern in the Free Patterns section.

Have fun, and post a comment below for any question/advice/comment!


  1. Hey there! I noticed your photo in the Fandom In Stitches flickr group. Did you want me to add links on FiS for your Mystery Quilt project?

  2. Hi Jennifer,
    That would be great! :)
    I thought I could give you all the patterns for FiS once the mystery is not a mystery any more, but if you want to share this project as it is, I would be more than happy!!

  3. Thanks for the new project! My daughter is starting the Disney College Program this fall and this will make a wonderful Christmas present! I do have one question. What colors should we have in our stash? The Tower for example--Should we use the same colors that you have in your picture? I dont want you to give away the mystery but some helpful advise to point me in the right direction would be greatly appreciated! Again, thanks--I look forward to participating!

  4. Good question :)

    As I said, I am new to these design projects so I cannot estimate the amount of fabric you will need... sorry about that... I will learn to do that the more I get familiar with the process :)

    About the colors...

    Most of the blocks will have either a sky/water background (so different tones of blue) or a "nature" background (green and brown). Some of them have no specific need for the background color (so I generally choose either neutral or grey... or whatever other color looks nice with the blocks I already have).

    Main characters:
    The main characters will have the following colors:
    - bright blue and white
    - pink and purple
    - red and yellow
    And skin color for all of them.
    Elements of the characters will also use browns and greens too.

    So to summarize: pretty much all the colors in the rainbow :)

    As a final comment: I like to use many different fabrics and with very strong colors. However you don't need to do that (this is why my patterns usually have more neutral tones). For example, for the sky of the Tower block I used at least 3-4 different fabrics, but I could have as easily chosen just one. But I like the "impressionistic/crazy" look rather than the "realistic/calmer" one :)

    Thank you for your comment and see you soon for the next block!!


Thanks for stopping by! I would love to hear from you!
