Today is the big day! After all the waiting we’ve put you through … it’s finally time! I’m super excited to reveal to you the third and final block for the ‘Dreaming in Fabric’ Mystery Quilt Along today! Shannon from Fabrics N Quilts and I are hosting this fun scrappy mystery together! . We are partnering to bring you this QAL as part of the 5th Annual Scrap Quilt Challenge! How did your Cortland Quarter Stars and MacIntosh Mayhem blocks go? How many of you are waiting to see what the whole quilt looks like before you get started? It’s okay – you can admit it!
At the end of this post I’ll show you some different combination quilts you can make my combining Shannon and my blocks together in different ways! All of the possibilities with just six blocks! Craziness!
If you want to use the same color scheme as me – check out THIS POST to read about what fabrics you need. Okay – so sticking with my apple name theme … this months block is called ‘Regent Rope’. This is extra appropriate as the Regent apple is my sister-in-law’s favorite apple and she’s arriving today from Virginia to spend some time with the girls during apple season! And here it is – the Regent Rope block! It is a simple block that creates some dramatic effects! I promise you that if you break it down like I do in my tutorial you’ll have fabulous blocks in no time! I also promise you that this block just screams, “USE SCRAPS!”. So listen – and use your scraps up! The more fabrics … the cooler this quilt is going to look when it’s all said and done!

Here is what my Final ‘Dreaming in Fabric’ Mystery Quilt looks like! I made 8 Cortland Quarter Stars (four in the center and one in each of the four corners), 8 MacIntosh Mayhem blocks and 12 Regent Rope blocks. I’m thrilled with how this is turning out!
Next month I’ll share with you the block I made for my border that ties this all together into one fabulous SCRAPPY quilt!
Make sure you head over to Shannon of Fabric N Quilts blog to see what her mystery block looks like!
Above are a few examples of layout looks that can be achieved by mixing our two blocks together. The possibilities are endless!
We want to see your blocks when they’re all pieced together. Just link up to the linky below so we can all see what you’re coming up with! Don’t forget…on November 15th, we will host a linky party for finished tops or quilts. Fabrics N Quilts will award a $25.00 gift certificate to one of these linky quilters, at random. The quilt can be any combination of the Dreaming In Fabric blocks. Shannon & I can’t wait to see what you create!
