Fat Quarter Shop’s 2017 Designer Mystery Block of the Month: 10th Anniversary

Printer-friendly versionPDF version

Since 2008, the Designer Mystery BOM has been one of Fat Quarter Shop’s most popular project events. For this 10th anniversary year, they have another amazing crew of designers lined up to bring you a beautiful 12” block each month from June 2017 through May 2018. There are limited spots available, so you'll want to be sure to reserve your place early. Read on to see who’s on the list of this year’s 12 designers as well as to find out about the FQS special anniversary free bonuses. 

Each month, you’ll receive a 12” block pattern from one of 12 fabulous Moda fabric designers. The fabric collection they are all working with this year is the brand new Spring-A-Ling from American Jane. Its bright colors and petite prints and florals are as happy as the first flowers popping up after a long winter. You’re also going to love the little surprise scotty dog stripe motif!

Below is a sneak peek at the first block of the 2017 season: a pretty pinwheel to signal the arrival of the warm breezes of Spring.

Look at who’s designing this year!





This BOM program from Fat Quarter Shop is one of the most thorough yet most affordable we’ve come across. The creativity and instructions are top notch. And, the yardage sent always includes enough to create all the cuts as well as a bit extra in case there’s an “oops!” Click through to their site for all the pricing information for US, Canadian, and International orders.

To help celebrate their 10th anniversary, Fat Quarter Shop has some very special bonuses with this year’s program. When you sign up, you’ll get a free spool of Aurifil 50wt 2000, a creamy white that’s perfect for the Spring-A-Ling collection. 

When you purchase the Designer Mystery Finishing Kit, you’ll get a FREE Large Flying Geese Ruler by Quilt in a Day. And, when you purchase the Designer Mystery Backing Kit, it comes with a FREE commemorative quilt label you can personalize. 

The 2017 Design Mystery Block of the Month Facebook group already has over 400 members, so you know you’ll have lots of friends to swap stories and photos with throughout the year. 

Remember, there are limited slots available, so sign up today. It will be Spring before we know it (thank goodness!!).
