Hello, friends, and thanks so much for stopping by for this week’s All the Trimmings Mystery Quilt Week 3 post. This week’s row is a darling ribbon row–so unique and the perfect addition to this wall hanging. Keep reading for all of the details about this quilt along and tips for this week’s row.
All the Trimmings Mystery Quilt Week 3
All the Trimmings Fabric Requirements
First, it’s definitely not too late to join in with this sew along if you haven’t already started. The rows go together quickly and are well-suited for beginning quilters. For this quilt you can start with a Layer Cake and 1-½ yards of background fabric. And you can find a cute printable with the complete fabric requirements here. (You’ll also notice there is a cross-stitch version of the same project available as well). Additionally, the quilt finishes at 33 ½″ x 38 ½″ and doesn’t have a border. If you want to add an outer print border get an additional ¾ yard of fabric. I’m not adding a border to my quilt but am going to make a scrappy binding to add more color around the edges of my quilt. If you missed my post on row one, you can find it here.
All the Trimmings Fabrics and Tools
I’m sewing along with the Red Barn Christmas collection by Sweetwater with a few older pieces from their earlier Christmas group, Holly’s Tree Farm added in. And, I used Christmas Morning fabrics for my backing and binding. They coordinate beautifully with the Red Barn Christmas fabrics, too. For my solid background I’m using Moda Bella Porcelain which is lighter than Ivory and a nice creamy contrast to my fabrics. The Fat Quarter Shop version is sewn in the Christmas Morning collection by Lella Boutique with a dark background and will also be stunning. But really, any Christmas group would work, and this one sews up terrific with scraps, too! Finally, you’ll really want to have the Mini Simple Folded Corners Ruler on hand for this one. It saves a lot of time.
All the Trimmings Ribbon Row Details and Pattern Link
I used a mix of fabrics from Red Barn Christmas and Holly’s Tree Farm (both by Sweetwater) for this week’s Ribbon row. I also used the Mini Simple Folded Corners Ruler linked above in the fabric and tools section.
When sewing this week’s row I highly recommend laying out all of the parts and pieces in the order they go in the row. It’s super easy to get things turned around this week 🙂 I made all of the easy corner units and then started sewing the parts and pieces together from left to right. Once you sew a few sections it goes much more quickly. Get the pattern for this week’s row here, or click the button below (remember patterns may not be available until after 8:30 a.m. CST).
Next Week’s Row
Next week we’ll be making the fourth and final row for the mystery quilt. Row 4 is tied for my favorite with the stocking row…can’t wait to share it! And the week after that the folks at Fat Quarter Shop will share the finishing directions.
Thanks so much for stopping in to read about All the Trimmings Mystery Quilt Week 3. Happy quilting!

Thank you so much for showing and talking about your scrap quilts. The information you shared really gave me a better understanding of how to make a scrappy quilt. I am looking forward to seeing the others you mentioned.
