Meadow Mystery Quilt - Quit Kits

The Meadow Mystery Quilt officially started yesterday (July 7th) with the posting of fabric requirements and helpful fabric picking tips.  (You can always find the mystery quilt posts in the tab above).

For those that would like the option of a quilt kit, we have some options this year:

Bear Creek Quilting Company

The Bear Creek Quilting Company has put together a beautiful kit of fabrics from the Gentle Breeze Collection by Maywood Studios.  I really like how the strong and darker blues combine with the greens and cream colors.  The Bear Creek Quilting Company has been generous enough to send me a kit to use during the quilt along (I am going to actually be making two version of the mystery quilt this year :)

The Bear Creek Quilting Company's kit contains all of the fabrics needed for the quilt top and binding (in this kit the binding is made using Fabric C).  You can purchase yardage of other coordinating Gentle Breeze fabrics separately for the backing, if desired.  You can find the quilt kit listed here.





Fat Quarter Shop

I have worked with the Fat Quarter shop to create some curated shopping lists.  A little different than a kit, if you like any of the fabric combinations, simply click on each fabric link and add the amount of yardage listed to your online shopping cart.

  3. Thank you so much for these, fabric choice is where I struggle most with mystery quilts since I can't "see" in advance where I am headed. I am really liking the black and white.

  12. Cheryl, these are each great! I have most of the black and white with a color pop fabrics (with a different "pop") So that might just be the way I go.

    1. I am sorry I could not reply to your message through e-mail as your comment does not have an e-mail address associated with it. Bear Creek Quilting Company is moving (you can see on their website) but you should get your kit in plenty of time to start cutting in August.
