Magnolia Mystery Quilt

Welcome to the Magnolia Mystery Quilt page!  The Magnolia Mystery Quilt is my 4th mystery quilt.  I hope you decide to join in!

The Magnolia Mystery Quilt is a free quilt-along that is starting on July 6th, 2017 and will finish up in February 2018 with a set of directions revealed the first Thursday of every month. The Magnolia Mystery quilt will contain instructions for two quilt sizes, a lap sized quilt and a queen sized quilt.

We will kick off the quilt-along on Thursday, July 6th with 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).

Here are some more details about the Magnolia Mystery quilt...

1. Quilt-along Instructions - (Note that these have changed since the Meadow Mystery Quilt)

The monthly instructions will be posted to my blog as blog posts (and can always be found on this page as well as in the Mystery Quilt tab above). The instruction posts will contain the monthly piecing instructions as well as a link to an easily printable pdf that you can print and download. The pdf's will be available until the reveal parade and then a pdf of the full pattern will be available for sale via Etsy (but the instructions will always remain in the blog posts).

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.

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 have over 2,200 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.

6. Previous Mystery Quilts - The instructions for my previous mystery quilts are located in the Mystery Quilt tab above (and are always available so you can start them at any time).

  1. Looking so forward to making this quilt :)

  2. Would love to try my hand at your mystery quilt.

  3. Have my fabric & am ready to go. Am looking forward to it & hope I can keep up. Thanks & take care.

  4. This waiting is KILLING MEEEEEEEE

    1. Less than a week until we start cutting :)

  5. I love love love your mysteries !

  6. Would a directional print work with this pattern?

    1. A directional print will wind up facing in multiple directions in the finished quilt. If you are okay with this then it is fine to use, if you would prefer to have the directional print facing all the same way then I would suggest not using one. I hope that helps :)
