Meadow Mystery Quilt Reveal Parade ++ Day 1


Welcome to the 1st day of the Meadow Mystery Quilt Parade! Due to the number of quilters participating, I have broken up the parade into 3 days, April 5th-7th. The prize winners will be posted on April 8th. 

We have 267 versions total and they are all beautiful! Thank you so much to everyone who has been taking part or following along in the Meadow Mystery Quilt!  The entrants were free to change up the design any way the liked so in addition to seeing hundreds of colorways, you will see tons of different borders, alternative layouts, and ways of expanding the design.

Grab some coffee or tea and some cake and take some time to look through over the first 90 wonderful versions of the Meadow Mystery Quilt people have made.

Just as a reminder, the mystery quilt instructions can be found for free on the blog in the tab above and they will never be taken down so you can start at any time. (I also now have the entire set of instructions for sale as an easy downloadable pdf).

  33. These quilts are fabulous. It's amazing with all these quilts using the same pattern - how different they all are. They are all beautiful. I'd be looking and then there would be a quilt that would take my breath away - it was just to my color favorites or it brought up a memory. In no way was the quilt workmanship better, the quilt just stirred me. I need to my emotions settle before I look at more.
