Do you love a good mystery? This might be our best one yet! We are sew happy to present the 2019 Designer Mystery Block of the Month (it’s now sold out) ! This has been one of our favorite projects for the past 11 years and we are even more excited to be going into our 12th! Check out the first block of this year’s Designer Mystery Quilt!
Do you have any idea how the rest of it will look? Here’s a portion we can show you, the center of the quilt finishing! This year’s quilt finishes at a generous 84.5” square.
Every year, the Designer Mystery quilt is made up of 12 blocks designed by 12 Moda designers and each block measures 12″ x 12″. The great thing about the quilt is that is perfect for quilters of all levels, so everyone is invited!
Designer Mystery Block of the Month
Ready for a monthly surprise? When you sign up for the Designer Mystery Block of the Month you’ll receive a shipment of the fabrics and pattern needed to make one block a month for 12 months. In the image below, you can see the spaces your monthly Block of the Month club will fill in (Blocks 1-12). The club will ship on the 10th of each month starting in June. We have a limited number of spots open, so make sure to reserve yours today!
Fabric and patterns for blocks one through twelve will be mailed to you each month.
Finishing Your Quilt
After sewing up your blocks that comprise the main part of the quilt, you will need additional fabric to complete the center block, corners, borders, binding and backing. (Backing sets and Finishing Kits are sold out). If you don’t have one, you may use the Fabric Requirements below to know which fabrics from the Orchard collection you’ll need to make your quilt like the pattern. Please note: the 12″X20″ cut can be found in a fat quarter or 1/3 yard cut. The pattern was written to use 7″ Triangles on a Roll Half-Square Triangle Paper as an easy way to batch out the HST’s for the quilt’s border.
We have 12 lovely Moda Designers that contributed sampler blocks for this year’s Designer Mystery Quilt! You may recognize some old faces and even meet some new ones!
We are sew excited to get started with this year’s Designer Mystery BOM! The 2019 Designer Mystery BOM will run from June 2019-May 2020 and will ship around the 10th of each month. Meet your fellow Designer Mystery quilters by joining the Kimberly’s Stitch Squad on Facebook (where we will also be posting monthly updates and where you can ask questions) and follow along on Instagram with the #2019DesignerMystery hashtag!
