This Mystery Quilt pattern was kindly contributed by: Sara Reid of Gumnut Gear. Please contact Sara with any questions regarding this pattern.

For this quilt, I have designed it with a patchworker's stash in mind. You need a large background piece, but the rest is done scrappy. So long as your piece is larger than 4cm square you can use it somewhere. I have broken the instructions up into sessions and parts, simply follow 1 step at a time.

206 Patchwork Quilt Patterns: The Famous Ruby McKim Book Plus A Bonus Of 105 Vintage Patterns.

Finished size:- 170cm square Seam allowance:- 6mm

I recommend that all fabrics should be washed and pressed before starting. Also, you should read through all instructions for the section before starting work on that section.


  • 3.8 metres main fabric/background. This needs to be a simple fabric, plain, marbled or with a small simple print as it needs to contrast your other fabrics.
  • 10 - 12 fat ΒΌ's or a large stash for contrasts - checks, strips or any pattern will be fine so long as there is contrast from the background.
  • Follow instruction provided in the Gumnut Gear sessions below:
