2014 Designer Mystery Block of the Month

This Block of the Month still has me excited.  I love the fabric and I get some practice with different block units that I wouldn't normally use.

Block # 4 is called "Beautiful Joy".  It was designed by Sandy Gervais of Pieces From My Heart.  You can see some of Sandy's projects and her own fabric lines at
This particular block took me a little longer than it should have but a little thing called "focus" was not happening this afternoon when I was assembling the units on the side of the center square.    I put the tan dots on each side instead of 2 dots and 2 prints so there was a lot of ripping out going on.  In the end, I LOVE how the block turned out even though it took twice as long to assemble.

After dinner I cut out Block #5 which is called "Brilliant Lissa" which was designed by Polly Minick and Laurie Simpson of Minick & Simpson fame.  You can see their fabric and projects also on
This block, although it looks challenging, it was really a quick one to cut out and assemble.

I am doing this Block of the Month with Fat Quarter Shop.  They ship the kit promptly on the 10th of the month and when you sign up you get all the fabrics you need for finishing it off at the end.  I have seen a few girls have started cutting and assembling their blocks but I am going to wait at least till after the holidays to look at the finishing kit.  With Thanksgiving, my first grand baby coming and then Christmas, well, I don't need anything extra to think about.

Here's a picture of the first 5 blocks I have finished.

Gorgeous....just gorgeous!!!
