Midnight Mystery Quilt - October Courthouse Step Blocks

Midnight Mystery Quilt – Courthouse Step Blocks

Cheryl @Meadow Mist Designs released the October instructions for the Midnight Mystery Quilt last Thursday. The directions are to make 9 courthouse step blocks. Once again, 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 mean, I just can’t get enough of the Riley Blake Rocket Age Rocket Blast print…

The blocks are really large (19-inches square), and I am curious if we are going to use them as is or if we will end up cutting them up, or… yeah, the temptation to play with the blocks that have been made and guess at the layout is strong!

  1. Oh I wish I saw this fabric earlier, Im doing a space shuttle pattern at the moment, at least I know about it now so thank you 🙂 Love your mystery project fabrics are perfect 🙂

    I think of you every time I see this fabric! 🙂 How could you not try to figure out what the layout will be?? I’d be obsessed!! LOL

  3. Your blocks are great! So appropriate for the Jetgirl 😉 I’m enjoying Midnight Mystery as well, the blocks are basic and relaxing to do which gives me lots of time to admire everyone else’s creations. So many lovely fabric choices!

  4. The rocket print is great, and it looks awesome in the block. I, too, wondered if we would end up cutting the block. It’s so big in comparison to the other blocks we’ve made.

  5. I love your blocks and am glad that there is still some mystery in the design. My goal was to keep it as mysterious as possible for as long as possible 🙂

    Ooh, so pretty! I can’t wait to start on mine — hopefully after I get back from my trip next Wednesday!

    I love the rocket print and have looked high and low. I found zero to be had! I covet your stash of it! 🙂

  9. Jasmine says:

    Neat! I love how the dark fabric looks in strips.

    You couldn’t have picked the perfect fabric ~ it is like Riley Blake designed it with you in mind!

  11. Cathy says:

    Love your fabric choices. This is going to be a gorgeous quilt.

  12. Rachel says:

    I really like the contrast between the white and the navy rocket age. Very nice!

  13. I really love the rocket fabric as well and it just pops even more when paired with the white. Having had a peek at the mystery quilt, I think I’d be going nuts not knowing how everything goes together. In case you hadn’t guessed, I was the kid who had a hard time around wrapped Christmas presents. If someone were to accuse me of peeking and then rewrapping the presents, I’d deny it… 😮

    Gack! I haven’t even contemplated cutting the blocks up. I really like the big blocks. It is interesting to think about how things may come together.

  15. There are a lot of really cool jet/rocket/space type fabrics out right now, and I, too, find them rather irresistible! I keep buying them even though I don’t have a project for them – I just like ’em. I’m following y’all’s midnight mystery quilt to see what it turns out to be. Next time I’m all in – too intriguing. Cheryl really had a great idea with this…

    Those teeny rockets jetting around the blocks are just brilliant! And yes, not knowing the layout would be driving me potty!

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