Hey everyone, I am so excited to reveal the first block we will be doing as part of the Mystery Block of the Month 2022 – the Dream Weaver Block!
The Dream Weaver Block is a really simple block to make, the tricky part is just making sure you sew the pieces together in the right order, which I will show you exactly how to do in my step-by-step tutorial.
This tutorial is free and everything you need to know to make the Dream Weaver Block is listed here, including the link to my free YouTube tutorial.
A PDF pattern with full printable instructions is available to purchase on my Etsy Store at a nominal fee.
It helps to refer to this image and understand exactly how the pieces fit together, creating the illusion of a weave.
DREAM WEAVER BLOCK CUTTING INSTRUCTIONS
To make this block you will need five different fabrics.
With one fabric cut: 4 x 3½’ x 3½”
With the other four fabrics cut: 1 x3½’ x 3½” & 1 x3½” x 6½”
Please watch my video for full instructions on how to make the Dream Weaver Block:
This block is part of my Mystery Block of the Month, you might like to check out the next block, The Love Squared Block.
Thanks so much for joining me! Please leave a comment and let me know how you go, or if you have any questions.

Will it look good to use the same colour fabrics for each block?
Hi Janet, I really think it’s a personal choice. I will use 8 different fabrics, so it will be a mix of the same fabrics used in different blocks, but all fabrics won’t be in every block (I hope that makes sense). It would also be fun to just use scrap fabric and make them all different.
Thanks for this fun block of the month. Look forward to the others!
Thanks so much Gerry 🙂

Suggestions on cutting your first strips? Cut wof.
Hi Debi, yes cut a 3.5″ strip off the width of fabric, from that cut the two pieces from each of the fabrics. Then save whatever is left over as it will be used.
Block 1 done – easy peasy instructions

Hi, I am a beginner to quilting but I am quite excited to join your mystery block per month group. Please be patient with me if I asked silly questions. I just saw your posting so I have to find some fabric now. Do I need any special fabric?
Hi Marcella, I am so happy you are joining in and found it helpful. I have a lot of videos on my YouTube channel for beginners that you might like to check out 🙂 As for fabric still to 100% quilting cotton 🙂
Thank you for hosting this! I’m excited to see along!
My pleasure Jennifer! Thanks so much for joining in 🙂
Hi! I am a beginner quilter and doing a Block of the Month is a first for me. I find your “teaching” excellent. I do not feel stupid because you explain every step so well. I am looking forward to this adventure.
Hi Ria, thanks so much for your lovely feedback, it is greatly appreciated and makes my day! Thanks for joining in! I also have a lot of videos explaining the basics if you wanted to check them out on my YouTube channel 🙂
Looking forward to this monthly block see along! I am new to this so I will learn a lot. Your first video was very helpful.

Where is the instructions for cutting the fabric?
Hi Sue, The sizes to cut fabrics are listed above under the heading “Cutting Instructions”
Thank you for making feel confident to try this block of the month. You explained each step so well. Appreciate you doing this for us.
Very well Done Stacey! I look forward to the year’s journey with you.
Thanks so much Cheryl, thanks for joining in 🙂
That was fun. Are all blocks going to be the same ‘Dream Weaver’ pattern? With a mixture of the same 8 fabrics? I enjoy your videos so much, very simply explained and easy to follow. I have referred several friends to your you tube videos!
Will each block be completing with the same fabric or different fabric every month?
Hi Donna, you can really use whatever fabric you would like. I am using 8 different fabrics that will be used to make all 12 blocks. Not every fabric will be in every block. I hope that makes sense 🙂
Thank you for the mystery block. Looking forward to seeing the next.
Awesome Johanna, thanks so much for joining in 🙂
Getting ready to start!
Awesome! Have fun! 🙂
I love doing a quilt along – block of the month ….. The video is great and easy to understand and follow.
Now I am going to go make this block lol
Thanks so much Delphina, and thanks for joining in 🙂
Wonderful video. Easy to follow and very thorough. I hope to start on this block soon! I have some fabric in mind….
Thanks so much Barb, I appreciate your kind feedback! Have fun making it 🙂
Does the block pattern change every month
Hi Donna, yes it does, I will reveal a new block on the last Friday of each month 🙂
I’m excited about your block of the month and enjoyed your video showing us how to make this block. Looking forward to seeing the next one
Awesome Sue – thanks so much for taking the time to leave a comment 🙂
Looks good,very easy to follow
Thanks so much, it really is easy 🙂
I enjoy your video! Can’t wait for the next block.
Thanks so much Sue 🙂
Thank you so much. Your tutorial is perfect!
Thanks so much Jane!
This was fun! I want to know more about how to press the seams correctly, I usually press towards dark and if it’s not in the directions I can get confused.
Hi Peggy, that’s exactly right. Press towards the dark unless stated otherwise in the instructions 🙂
Late getting started. Just had back surgery and need something to distract me from the pain. This looks like it’s just what I need.
Oh no Kathleen, I hope you have a speedy recovery. My husband has had two spinal surgeries, so I know how hard that can be. These blocks are easy and quick to make. It will be a perfect project for you ☺️
