2013 Designer Mystery Block of the Month

Happy 2013, everyone!

We are so excited to debut our sixth annual Fat Quarter Shop Designer Mystery Club today! No matter how much we love our previous year’s mystery quilt, the new one always seems to top it. I hope our faithful Designer Mystery clubbers feel the same way! (Raise your hand if you’ve been with us since 2008!)

This one is no exception; we pulled out all the stops for this Designer Mystery quilt. For anyone not familiar with our club, twelve amazing Moda designers have contributed blocks to this mystery sampler quilt, which starts in June. From June 2013 through May 2014, members will receive fabric and instructions for one block and finish with a fabulous quilt setting. This year, we are using the upcoming Avalon collection by the fabulous Joanna Figueroa of Fig Tree Quilts, who has designed our equally fabulous and unique finishing kit. Fig Tree fans, do not miss out!!

This year’s quilt finishes at 73.5" x 88.5", a generous twin-bed size, and is a spectacular one-of-a-kind row quilt, with rows of baskets, stars, flowers and houses.

Our blocks were designed by:
  1. Bonnie & Camille
  2. Bunny Hill Designs
  3. Fig Tree Quilts
  4. Kansas Troubles Quilters
  5. Kate Spain
  6. Laundry Basket Quilts
  7. Me and My Sister Designs
  8. Minick & Simpson
  9. Pieces From My Heart
  10. Primitive Gatherings
  11. Sweetwater
  12. V & Co.
Sign up soon, and don’t forget to reserve your finishing kits and backing sets too!

Stay tuned, we will be posting more information soon. Excited yet?? We are!

Exciting! I signed up in 2010 and 2012 and loved it. Count me in for 2013 - that fabric is just too awesome to resist!

i"m new in 2012 and really loving it! A question about 2013 - will it all be Beginner/Intermediate level piecing? Will there be any applique (i think I'm allergic to applique ;)
The fabric collection looks wonderful and your list of designers is AMAZING!

Karen said...

Hhmm . . . intersted in knowing a bit more about the idea of a row quilt.

LOVE the fabric though!

@manybooks This year there will be NO applique and it is for beginner/intermediate level quilters!

Thank you for selecting Avalon for the fabric! It is so rich and saturated in color and I can't wait to continue this tradition. Can't get enough Fig Tree!

Hi! I've just found this little club of gorgeousness and want to sign up! Can you please just tell me, once I've signed up, will you automatically invoice me every month or how does it work please?

Fat Quarter Shop said...


We will automatically invoice you each month! Our customer service ladies would love to chat about it with you, you can email or call 1-866-826-2069 with questions!

This looks like so much fun. How does it work do I buy the fabric seperately or do they send that with the monthly block?

Fat Quarter Shop said...

@kwilis, the fabric is included with the monthly block! Each month you will receive the fabric and pattern for the block!
