Yesterday I showed you my Mystery Block of the Month that I had to do some frogging on. I have finished that block and the next one as well. I think the third block, the wreath, is my favorite so far.
It is so much fun to get these each month and see the creativity that each designer has in putting the block together. The packets are very generous with the fabric they provide too, so I will probably have quite a bit leftover when I am done.
I have been looking to do a block of the month for a while. A block of the month is where you get enough fabric to make one block each month and then at the end of 12 months you have 12 blocks that you can make a whole quilt. I haven’t found one that struck me in a while, but I happened to stumble upon a mystery block of the month from the Fat Quarter Shop.
I have one Christmas quilt right now and I would love to have another, so I thought this was a good way to get one and do a block of the month. Since it is a mystery, I do not know what the final quilt will look like. I have finished just one block so far and am currently working on the second. Here is a picture of the first block.
