Disney Mystery Quilt - Block 7 and more patterns!!

Today there is not going to be one, not Two, but THREE new patterns...
and also a tutorial if someone is interested :)

So let's get down to business :)

Pattern 1:


Here we are with Block number 7 of the Mystery Quilt.

If you have any other question, don't hesitate to ask.

The Seventh Block of the Quilt is Merlin.

You can find the pattern in the Free Patterns section.

Have fun, and post a comment below for any question/advice/comment!
And if you tried any of the blocks, please leave me a comment below, or send me a picture of the block or publish the block on the FiS Flickr Group (or all of them :) ). I would love to see your work!!

Pattern 2:

I finally released the second pattern from the Music Series!!
This time is a complete set of notes (quarters).
They are pretty easy to realize because the basic pattern is always the same, the only thing that changes is the space above/below the note and/or it's orientation on the staff.

You can find the pattern in my Craftsy store! :)

Pattern 3:

WARNING: this is an untested pattern. But I keep seeing them around and I could not resist. I don't have a project for him right now, so this is why I didn't test it. But I will share him with you because maybe there is someone that wants to test it! :)

The pieces in the pdf are not colored because the pattern is as it comes from QuiltAssistant (and color indicators on small pieces are more confusing than helping for me :) ).

It makes a block 10.5'' x 7.25''.

You can download the pattern from here.


It has been a very crafty month... and since birthdays are approaching I started putting together gifts.
I wanted to make a Card Wallet, but none of the ones I found around had the shape/size I wanted. So I took what I like from each of them and I made my own version.


Mega Card Holder Wallet+Noodlehead: basic boys wallet+


In particular, this are my likes/dislikes of the three projects:
1) Mega card wallet
likes: more than 4 cards capacity, different pages;
dislikes: too tall for my small purses, pocket opening on top, unfinished back of the pockets.
2) Boys wallet
likes: finished back of the pockets (because of folding), super-easy to assemble;
dislikes: only few cards capacity, pocket opening on top, no closure system
3) Business card holder
likes: closure with button, pocket opening on side;
dislikes: only few cards capacity

So I created a wallet that:
- easy to assemble and has finished pockets' back (folding technique make it super fast and very clean finished look)
- different pages (most of them with pocket orientation on side)
- detachable pages (so even if the final pocket is about 1''), it may be bulky for small bags: so I used snaps to attach the inside pages. Now when I use the small purse I can just grab the internal pages instead of the entire wallet!)
- 12 side pockets + 2 vertical pockets (card size) + 2 vertical pockets (smaller than card size): so plenty of room for all my cards (and for few coupons and cash too)!!

This is the final result of this first prototype:


All the different pages (on the left) and the detachable inside pockets (on the top)

The first time I made it, I didn't take any measure, I eyeballed everything :)
But I will make more of those for sure because they make fast and nice Christmas presents ;)
So if someone tells me is interested, next time I can write down all the measures and take some pictures in the process to put together a tutorial about that. :) :)
If you are interested just drop me a comment below or send me and email!


  1. I hope you don't mind, but I asked for a tester for your minion on the FiS Facebook page. He's too good not to share!

    Merlin will be added to FiS on Saturday. :)

  2. :) Thanks, I would be more than happy to see him coming alive!! :) I also think he is very cute, but now I am too busy with other project to try the pattern myself. It's faster for me to design things than to piece them together with fabric! ;)

  3. Nice job, if you have the time to write a tutorial I'm sure many (me included!) will appreciate it :)

  4. Thanks :) I will try to find some time to do that... but I am not so sure now because I am designing 2 new Disney quilts :) soon I will post all the blocks at once if anyone wants to test/qal with me on those!

  5. I just found you and have not checked out too much, but if you do a tutorial on the wallet I would love to see it. So far I am enjoying.


Thanks for stopping by! I would love to hear from you!
Please share your thoughts on my projects with me!
