Mystery quilt patterns are fun group events that illustrate just how different each person interprets a pattern from basic clues but without knowing what the final quilt will look like.
Mysteries are sometimes revealed in one day but instructions for others are released over a few weeks or months. Sometimes quilters can't decide how they want to place the quilt blocks into a layout and other times they prefer to let the design sink in a bit before proceeding.
The New Year's Day mystery quilt offers plenty of choices for color and contrast, and a complete layout surprise during the final steps. Quilters had lots of fun with this one, and you will, too.
If you like smaller quilts, take a look at our Super Bowl Sunday mystery quilt pattern. I published instructions for this mystery quilt pattern over a longer period of time, so be prepared for lots more patchwork units and somewhat fussier cutting than I use in New Year's Day mystery quilt patterns.
The New Year's Day mystery event was fun, and lots of quilters created completely unique quilts from the pattern. If you don't mind spoilers, take a look at the Mystery Gallery.
Like all mysteries, every quilter interpreted color themes quite differently in The result was a wide variety of lovely quilts, all unique. This beginner-friendly quilt doesn't include even one triangle. This remains a favorite mystery quilt, and it really did remain a mystery until nearly all patches were cut and sewn. But it was time to convert the design to a typical pattern and the final quilt and a link to the instructions is illustrated here.
As always, there are loads of layout options. Inquilters made a smaller mystery quilt that finishes at inches square. Although everyone stuck to the same layout, the variations in color and contrast made each quilt quite unique.
You may be surprised just how much those variations affect the final appearance of a quilt. Our first New Year's Day mystery quilt, another smaller design. The pattern illustrates everything in shades of gray, which keeps anyone from being influenced by suggested colors. We don't have an official gallery for This mystery quilt pattern was published mid-year. The central medallion is revealed at the beginning of the pattern, but rows surrounding it are taken one step at a time.
This table runner pattern was initially a mystery but it's super easy to jump ahead to see the end results. The example table runner is Christmas themed, but the design is suitable for any fabrics you choose.
Guatemala Tour, ! Unity Quilt Along. I thought I had this top nailed down. What good would that do for anything? A wall hanging or table topper can be fairly small and still serve a purpose.

Sunday, December 29, Race to the End of the Decade! Of the Twenty-Teens decade. How many quilts made this year? This decade? Their number means nothing to me, other than the fact that I loved the moments that I was able to spend time with needle and thread in amongst everything else that life has thrown at me over the past year — or 10 years.You may choose to only complete the BOM and that would be awesome… but why stop there when you could end up with a wonderfully scrappy, twin size quilt?
I have designed the quilt to use up those 2. The more colors the better! If you love each fabric, you will love the quilt.

It will be brilliant! I know you can do this! Mystery Quilt The Outreach team will provide donated fabric for the top and the batting.
Fabric for the top will be available at the upcoming meetings. Please sign up at the meeting to donate the baby quilt if you take Outreach materials or if you would like Outreach to provide the batting. As always, you can make the Mystery Quilt without donating the finished product. Remember ladies, the big Mystery Quilt Show will be during the September meeting. Love the pattern; love the small size and great directions that work.
I did a couple of cutting changes which I have done before on other quilts that help me with corner and setting triangles. When the quilt is pieced, before borders, I square up the quilt and trim. This makes for a very square top. This allows me to sew without having to worry about bias stretch. Trim the extra fabric behind the corner triangle carefully after pressing.

View Poll Results.I know that many of you diehards are already signed up for this fabulous program for next year but I wanted to share a few more details about it for those of you who are still thinking or who might be new to Fig Tree or new to our Block of the Month programs.
Several years ago, it dawned on us after dozens of requests that even though our fabrics are distributed far and wide and hundreds and hundreds of stores carry and love them worldwide, that not everyone has a Fig Tree loving store physically near them.
It was then that we decided that we wanted to build an online community for those people… and for any of you who were looking to join in on the fun. And you all came out of the woodwork and we have loved getting to know you and work with you and inspire you. What you guys told us is that you wanted more kits and more monthly programs that focused on Fig Tree fabrics.
So we listened and the rest, as they say, is history. So it only makes sense that this is also one of absolute favorite things to for my business now, choose color combinations for programs, bundles and kits. I love it and I am so glad that so many of you do too. Really its just me, choosing a lovely combination of fabrics that I think will make a pleasing whole. Thanks for coming along for the ride! This has become an annual tradition for us that I started in I like to mix super simple classic blocks with ones that challenge us all a little bit while still being completely doable and not outside our ability!
Toward the latter months of the program we will start putting the blocks together into sections and quadrants, adding filler strips and simple blocks made from the various cream prints. It is like assembling a puzzle at that point… it is a lot of fun for me even if a math challenge sometimes.
This is as much of an adventure for me, as it is for you and I love being along for the ride. We have also added in some favorite cream and ivory prints as well as a few fabrics from our as yet unreleased Spring collection, called Chantilly. We think the whole fabulous Fig Tree rainbow will be a lot of fun to sew with! It will run the gamut of colors from our famous charcoal blacks all the way to a fabulous grouping of creams and ivories.
We have added in a bunch of our favorite cream prints so that the stronger fabrics have plenty of room to breath and sparkle! Given the theme this year, there will for sure be a farmhouse, some flowers on stems, classic barn blocks in a variety of shapes and sizes and possibly even a chicken… maybe. The feel of this sampler will be distinctly RETRO but not cutesy so I am thinking we will make that chicken optional and provide an alternate block too.
That way there is something for everyone! You will use the block pattern for the sampler and also have the Fig Tree pattern itself to add to your collection. Its really quite an amazing deal between all that lovely fabric, patterns and sampler instructions, its all too good to be true!
On a side note, I just want to mention that every year we do our BOM programs, I tell people that if they are interested, they should sign in the first few days of the announcement because they will most likely sell out.
So… all of that to say, join us if you are interested! We would love to have you along for the ride! Click HERE if you want more specific info on the program or to sign up. Let me know if you have any other questions at all. And I hope to see you guys all ready and waiting in January! Toggle navigation. Hello my friends!

This might be our best one yet! 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!
Do you have any idea how the rest of it will look? The great thing about the quilt is that is perfect for quilters of all levels, so everyone is invited! Ready for a monthly surprise? In the image below, you can see the spaces your monthly Block of the Month club will fill in Blocks 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! 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.
You may recognize some old faces and even meet some new ones! Have you sewed a past Designer Mystery Quilt? If so please leave a comment and tell us all about it! This will be my third I think and love everything about the kids. FQS plans great quilts with great fabrics and plenty extra for mistakes!
Have been enjoying them for probably the past ten years. Love Kimberley and her team!! Will you have more? I have already signed up for the Designer Mystery Block of the Month but would like the finishing kit too. I just ordered fabric for the finishing of the new Designer Mystery Quilt. After going on the blog today I discovered only the outside blocks are part of the BOM.
I sure hope the pattern for the center comes with the last month or do we have to buy that separately too? I was not able to buy the finishing kit, but purchased the fabric.
How do I purchase the pattern for the center block. Will that come later, or is it sold separately. Thanks, Donna Q. This is my third or fourth??
