Meadow Mystery Quilt - 4 Weeks Until Kick Off!

It's almost time! Just 4 more weeks until the start of the Meadow Mystery Quilt!



The Meadow Mystery Quilt is a free quilt-along that will run from July 2016 until April 2017 with a set of directions revealed the first Thursday of every month


The mystery quilt is a 60" x 60" lap size quilt that is at an advanced beginner / intermediate level very similar to last year's Midnight Mystery Quilt.  (Piecing will include blocks such as half square triangles, flying geese, and square in a square blocks.  There will be no applique, paper piecing, or Y seams).   


There will be a number of posts throughout June to introduce you to all of the wonderful sponsors of the Meadow Mystery Quilt.


On July 7th, the first post for the mystery quilt will be posted containing the fabric requirements and some helpful hints to pick fabrics and colors (you will have an entire month to gather fabrics before the cutting instructions in August).  Also in July, there will posts about quilt kit bundle and fabric options.


Here are some more details about the upcoming mystery quilt...


1.  Quilt-along Instructions The monthly instructions will be posted to this blog as blog posts on the first Thursday of each month (and can always be found in the Mystery Quilt tab above) and also sent out as an easy to print pdf through e-mail to the distribution list.  


If you would like to be added to the e-mail distribution list, simply leave a comment on 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. (If you received the e-mails for the Midnight Mystery quilt, you are already on the list so there is no need to sign up again).


2.  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.







grab button for Meadow Mist Designs 
<div class="meadow-mist-designs-button" style="width: 200px; margin: 0 auto;"> <a href="http://meadowmistdesigns.blogspot.com/p/mystery-quilt.html" rel="nofollow" target="_blank"> <img src="https://1.bp.blogspot.com/-GhlB0BHjq6s/Vyoy5VlypDI/AAAAAAAAFJY/_mrH32OyrFEh9nWS_JaI5S_3c-fFP9mMwCLcB/s1600/Meadow%2BMystery%2BLogo%2B200px.jpg" alt="Meadow Mist Designs" width="200" height="200" /> </a> </div>

3.  Prizes - We will have prizes!  Prizes will be given out randomly to quilters who submit quilts or quilt tops to the reveal parade in April 2017.  More details about the individual sponsors and prizes will be announced throughout June.


4.  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).


5.  Facebook Group - We already have over 400 active members in our Facebook Group (Meadow Mist Designs Facebook Group) sewing together!  Join the group today so you can share and see everyone else's fabric, progress pictures, and finished quilts.



I think that is everything for now.  I hope that you are planning on joining me for a fun mystery quilt!  If you have any questions or would like to be added to the e-mail distribution list, you can leave them as a comment or e-mail me at cheryljbrickey (at) gmail (dot) com.

I am linking up with Let's Bee Social at Lorna @ Sew Fresh Quilts and Needle and Thread Thursday at Kelly @ My Quilt Infatuation.

  46. I enjoyed the Midnight Mystery, just finished quilting it last week. The results were stunning and I loved it! The quilt kept pulling me toward giving it away, the more I looked at it the fabrics seemed to encompass a woman I know. I embroidered her name on the back (I love to do that when I gift things, reminds me of when I was a kid:)) and when I gave it to her she was so grateful. This experience left me with a feeling of deep gratitude even though I was the one giving. Thank you so much Cheryl for your generosity with us :) Looking forward to the new mystery!!
