We are bursting at the seams with excitement! Keeping this secret under wraps is no easy task, but our 2022 Designer Mystery Block of the Month will be worth the wait! This will be Fat Quarter Shop’s 15th Annual Designer Mystery Quilt, and it’s sure to be a surprise. This quilt weaves together comfort and inspiration, with 12 sampler blocks made in Nantucket Summer by Camille Roskelley for Moda Fabrics for a palette that’s sure to soothe your soul.
This year’s quilt is Full Size, finishing at 80.5” square. The Designer Mystery Block of the Month runs from June 2022 through May 2023. Members will receive a block pattern and fabric each month (and don’t worry, there’s a little extra included to allow for starching or miscuts).
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 it is perfect for quilters of all levels, so everyone is invited!
What You’ll Need
The 2022 Designer Mystery Quilt is exclusive to the Fat Quarter Shop and you won’t find it anywhere else! To complete your quilt, pick up the Designer Mystery Finishing Kit, which comes with some bonus goodies, including a beautiful coordinating keepsake box perfect for holding your blocks and patterns. It includes the pattern and fabric for the sashing, borders, and binding to finish the 80.5″ square quilt. Reserve the Designer Mystery Backing Set to receive 7.625 yards of this lovely blue floral print and a bonus quilt label available ONLY with the purchase of this backing set. Both the Finishing Kit and Backing Set will ship with your first shipment of the Block of the Month.
Finishing Your Quilt
After sewing up your blocks that comprise the main part of the quilt, you will need additional fabric to complete your quilt. These fabrics are in the Finishing Kit, but if you don’t have one, you may use the Fabric Requirements below to know which fabrics from the Nantucket Summer collection you’ll need to make your quilt like the pattern.
Block Fabric Requirements
We’re providing the fabric requirements for the blocks for those who didn’t get a spot in the Block of the Month club. The block patterns will be released in July of 2023.
If you would like some extra help making perfect half-square triangles without the fuss, we suggest using Triangles on a Roll Triangle Paper in H150, H200 and H300. These are completely optional to use.
Twelve incredible Moda Designers contributed sampler blocks for this year’s Designer Mystery Quilt! You may recognize some familiar faces and even meet some new ones.
