Mystery Block of the Month 2023

Block of the Month

The Mystery Block of the Month is back with all new blocks for 2023!

The Mystery Block of the Month is a fun sew-along for beginner quilters that are wanting to improve their quilting skills and gain confidence in trying new blocks.

The mystery comes in with only knowing what quilt block we are making on the day of the reveal.

Over 10 months we will make 12 different quilt blocks.

Each month from January to October a new block will be revealed on the last Friday of that month.

There will be an extra block in March and September, so we finish in time for Christmas.

Once we have completed all 12 blocks, we will add sashing and borders and turn our blocks into a finished quilt top.

Each Mystery Block of the Month reveal includes a video with step-by-step instructions showing you exactly how to make your blocks, and a PDF Pattern.

Each block will measure 12½” x 12½” square, and once finished in the quilt 12″ x 12″

The finished quilt will measure approximately 51″ x 65″

For each Mystery Block of the Month reveal there will be a PDF Pattern that includes the cutting instructions, step-by-step instructions, and lots of diagrams to help you through each of the steps to make each block.

I personally find the PDF Patterns super handy to refer back to as a quick reference guide and have printed them out and put them in a folder, I refer back to them time and time again.

The PDF Patterns will be available to purchase on my Etsy Store at a nominal fee. All PDF patterns for the Mystery Block of the Month 2023 are included in the Perks Membership.

    I loved the block of the month last year and I forward to this years challenge. I’ve learned so much from your tutorials. This year I hoops to gain more confidence.

  3. Gaila Stafford says:

    Stacey I’ve tried everything but ETSY doesn’t show the $25 for Perks membership. Unless $42.58 is the cost in Australian dollars. In the cart/checkout it shows $42.58 select payment option.
    Unfortunately I’ll have to join without perks.

    • Peggy Epperson says:

      I just went to purchase the Perks. In the top right corner you will see a circle with part of the Australian flag. If you tap that, you can set your preferred settings to your country and currency. I hope this is of some help.


  4. Peggy Epperson says:

    I would like to do this using Christmas fabrics. Any suggestions on how much light, medium, & dark fabric I might need? Thanks.

  5. Louise Hughes says:

    Am I reading this right, if we don’t sign up for perks we do get a sheet to look at so we know what out cutting requirements are?
    I signed up for the BOM and got this email but don’t know where to go to get the instructions.
    Please help

  6. Linda HayesTrent says:

    Hi, Stacey. I’m confused about what the number in () means in the FQ section of fabric requirements.
    For example, the first FQ requirement has (2) 3 FQs. Does this mean I need five FQs?
    Thank you, in advance, for your help.

    • Stacey says:

      Hi Linda, the number inside the bracket means how many different prints/fabrics you need. So if it says (2) 3 Fat Quarters you need two lots of three fat quarters, that would be a total of 6 fat quarters. Perhaps it’s easier to refer to the fabric by the yard to work out what it means. Because you are just buying the same amount of fabric but in FQs. I hope that makes sense.

  7. Linda HayesTrent says:

    Hi, me again. I haven’t participated in a MBOM before. Do I need seven FQs for each block?
    Thank you for your patience and help.

    • Stacey says:

      Hi Linda, I think you might be referring to the numbers in the brackets. You need 6-7 different fabrics/prints for the blocks. If you were using just fat quarters, you would need a total of 12 FQs.
