We are in the final stretch of the Mystery Block of the Month 2022, can you believe we are up to Block 11 already? This month we are making the lovely Eccentric Star Quilt Block, which is made up of Half Square Triangles, and with the clever placement we end up with an entirely new look.
Next month I will reveal the last block in our Mystery Block of the Month and then we will begin to make our quilt top by adding sashing and borders with cornerstones. Find out more, including fabric requirements HERE.
I don’t usually talk about quilting tools to purchase, but I have to say I am a big fan of the Creative Grids Quilting Square Ruler 4½” which helps make this block easier and quicker to square up, it is also useful for other blocks in this series. It can be found here at Fat Quarter Shop or here on Amazon.
The Mystery Block of the Month is a small achievable project each month, that will become our most detailed quilt so far! The trick is making your block within the month so it stays a stress-free and fun quilting project.
This tutorial is free and everything you need to know to make the Eccentric Star Quilt 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.
