2022 Designer Mystery Block of the Month Updates, Changes and Thoughts!

I am dedicating this post to the 2022 Designer Mystery Block of the Month. I will update this post as we get our Blocks of the Month and as I am doing the finishing blocks. You can follow along here as we spend the next year completing this beautiful quilt.

The fabrics that are going to be used in this quilt are Nantucket Summer collection by Camille Roskelley for Moda Fabrics. Below is a link if you would like to see the fabric collection.

Block One – Sand Dollar

This block is pretty straight forward to put together. The only think that I wanted to change was the direction of the stripe fabric. I didn’t like how the stripe was vertical and the lines didn’t match up, so I switched the stripes to be horizontal.

I will walk you through how I built the flying geese to have the horizontal stripes.

First – I cut the “F” pieces of fabric so that the stripe was with the long edge of the piece. This will place that flying goose with a horizontal strip.

Second – for the Flying goose that has the “D & G” pieces, I had to do a little more work. I laid my “G” striped square so that the stripes were vertical in relation to myself and on four of them I marked the diagonal from bottom left to top right. The final four squares I marked the horizontal from the bottom right to the top left.

Finally – when the squares are sewn into the corner and they are turned, they will now be horizontal to match the other flying goose unit.

I feel that my eye isn’t drawn to lines that don’t match when I put them together like this as opposed to how they show in the pattern.

Please comment below and let me know how you put this block together. Did you go vertical or horizontal with the stripes?
