Mystery Quilt 2015 Coming Soon!

I am very excited to announce that the next Mystery Quilt is going to be kicking off on June 4th, the first Thursday of June!  The pattern is drafted, tested, reviewed and ready to go!


The mystery quilt-a-long will run from June 2015 until March 2016 with a set of directions revealed the first Thursday of every month. The mystery quilt will finish at approximately 72" x 72", a very nice lap size.

The directions will be posted to this blog (and can be found in the Mystery Quilt tab above), given out in hard copy at both the Foothills Piecemaker's Quilt Guild (Greer, SC) and the Greenville Modern Quilt Guild meetings, and e-mailed to the mystery quilt distribution list.  The e-mail is great because I can mail out a much more friendly to print version of the instructions.  Want to be added to the e-mail list?  Simply add a comment to this post (with your e-mail if you are a no reply blogger) or send an e-mail to me at cheryljbrickey (at) gmail (dot) com.

June's instructions will be fabric requirements including yardages needed and some helpful hints to pick fabrics and colors.

New for this years's Mystery Quilt:

1.  Button - I have made a button for the mystery quilt :)  If you decide to join in on the quilt-a-long and have a blog I would love it if you posted the button.

Meadow Mist Designs Mystery Quilt

2.  Prizes - We will have prizes!  I am still working out the details, but we will have at least one, hopefully two-three prizes to giveaway at the quilt reveal in March 2016!  ( I will post more details as the prizes get finalized.)

3.  The Un-Mystery Quilt - Want to join in the fun but making a mystery quilt is not your thing?  If you would like to see the final pattern to decide whether to join in, or to help pick colors; simply e-mail me and I will send you a sneak peak (the only rule is that you have to keep the design completely to yourself as to not spoil anyone else's surprise).

I hope that you are planning on joining me for a fun mystery quilt!

  75. Please, oh please, add me to your email list. This will be the first time I ever picked out the fabric for a quilt. I always buy kits or have the gals at the LQS choose for me. I have a tremendous stash that I am going to get my fabric from. Wish me luck.
