Midnight Mystery Quilt - September Square in a Square Blocks

Midnight Mystery Quilt – Square in a Square

Cheryl @Meadow Mist Designs released the September instructions for the Midnight Mystery Quilt last Thursday. The directions call to make 34 square in a square blocks, and I broke up the piecing over a few days to get them all completed. I have to admit that I really enjoyed making these blocks because they combine 3 of the fabrics for the quilt and I am really happy with how they look together (I will be keeping this quilt for snuggling on my couch).

Midnight Mystery Quilt – September Square in a Square Blocks

It took me 2 hours and 20 minutes to make the 34 blocks. I started by piecing 2 blocks entirely to make sure I would be able to trim down to size. Then I worked in 4 batches of 8 blocks to keep momentum moving along.

  1. Must be the day for Economy Blocks hahahahah mine are a bit bigger and paper pieced but they are a great block for using up scraps 🙂 Your colours are great they really pop 🙂

    The fabric is so you.

    The fabrics do look great together Yvonne. I’m looking forward to being able to start mine for precisely that reason – seeing three of the fabrics together will give a better idea of how the quilt is developing.

  4. Great prints! I really love the dark blue print – so fun!

    Such great fabrics together! I love the little rocket – so you!

    Your blocks look great! I enjoy seeing your progress on the mystery quilt.

  7. Your fabrics look great together. Need to make time to make my own.

  8. Yours look great. I still need to sit down and figure out what I’m doing on this set of instructions. Since I peeked and know what the finished quilt looks like, it’s confusing me more because the colors in the finished rendering is different that the colors used in the instructions. So I need to make notes what each color should be and then I have to translate it to what colors I’m using. AND, since I’m enlarging for a queen size quilt, I need to do some additional math. That’s why I have to cut my fabric as I go.

    I’m really loving those fabrics together more and more, glad you’ve decided to keep this one, it’s very ‘you’.

I really appreciate the time and thought you take to comment, and I look forward to conversing with you. :)
