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.

Each time you shop via my links you support my small business and we are honored to have you as part of our quilting family! 

Block Six – Coastline

Block Six – Coastline has been put together for the Fat Quarter Shop 2022 Designer Mystery Block of the Month! This block was designed by April Anderson Rosenthal, and you may remember that she designed the fabrics in my Moda Midnight Moon QAL! We have blues to work with this week too!

Block Five – Windward

Block Five – Windward has been put together for the 2022 Designer Mystery Block of the Month! I think this is my favorite block so far! I love the design and colors and how it all works together for me. I walk through this block and show you how I consolidate some steps!

Block Four – Seagrass

This is another four color block and is comprised of mostly half square triangles! I will show you how I get such beautiful points in my block. Come with me on making this beautiful block designed by guest designer Brigitte Heitlund.

I explain all of that in the video below.

Block Three – Tides

Sometimes minimalism is refreshing and beautiful. This block only has 4 colors and in my video tutorial I will show you how I keep track of the right side of the background fabric (it’s hard to see which is the right side!). I also walk you through how I chain piece everything I can, which way to iron the seams, and lining up seams! Come with me on making this beautiful block designed by guest designer Stacy Iest Hsu.

Block Two – Starfish

This block is pretty easy to construct. There are not fabrics you need to line up and we will basically build four of the same blocks and put them together for one big block!

The biggest thing to remember in this block is that the green colorway blocks, the bottom right corner has a different fabric patch. Other then that, the blocks are put together exactly the same!

I explain all of that in the video below.

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?
