Magnolia Mystery Quilt ++ Sponsors Day 1

I am getting very excited about the start of the Magnolia Mystery Quilt and I hope that you are too!  We are only about 3 weeks now from the first set of instructions (fabric requirements). You can find out more about the Magnolia Mystery quilt here.

We have over $1,000 in prizes for the mystery quilt from some very generous and wonderful sponsors!  The prizes include patterns, fabric, thread, books, quilting services, and more.

The prizes will be given out randomly to those that submit a finished quilt or quilt top in the reveal parade in February 2018.  Because we have so many great sponsors, I will be breaking them up into a series of three posts.  In random order, here are 5 of the sponsors...

The Fat Quarter Shop is providing a generous $100 gift certificate to their shop as a prize.  I have worked with the FQS to create some curated shopping lists for some fabric options which will also be posted on July 7th for those that want some fabric options that will work with the mystery quilt design.

Yvonne of Quilting Jetgirl is back as a sponsor for the third year in a row! Yvonne blogs at Quilting Jetgirl. She has been quilting for 20+ years and credits quilting with helping her feel balanced and connected to both her local hometown community and a larger global community. Her patterns are available through her Etsy and Craftsy shops. Yvonne is donating 2 digital quilt patterns (winner's choice) to 4 winners, and you can see a small selection of her available patterns below:

Soma of Whims and Fancies is a software engineer by trade. Aside from math and science, she has loved painting and photography since she was a child.  Soma started quilting in 2012. Within a couple months of that, she started writing quilt patterns. Soma blogs at Whims and Fancies and her patterns are available through her Etsy and Craftsy shops.  Soma is donating a full set of her Seasons Patterns (Spring Kites, Summer Sailboat, Fall Maple Leaf, and Winter Meadow) to 4 winners.

Lorna is a modern quilter, pattern designer and the author of the Sew Fresh Quilts blog. Lorna uses traditional piecing methods to create a menagerie of animal quilts and an occasional block design. Lorna's patterns are available at her Etsy shop. Lorna is donating one each of her Bumper2Bumper, Ducks in a Row, Dog Gone Cute, Kissy Fishy and Black Birds digital quilt patterns.

Jan from Quilting Among the Grooves is offering the wonderful prize of custom longarm quilting of the mystery quilt (or an equivalent lap size quilt) again!

Winner provides the finished quilt top, backing and batting and shipping costs to Quilting Among the Groves. Quilting Among the Groves provides email or phone and photo consultation with semi-densely quilted all-over design, thread, and return shipping. (Due to shipping costs, this prize is limited to the US only).

Thank you so much to all of our sponsors and we still have 2 more posts full of wonderful prizes!

  2. These are all fabulous prizes! Can't wait to see more!

  3. I can't believe it's almost time to start another mystery quilt. I'm really looking forward to it!

  4. I am excited to follow along. I am knee deep in projects at this time.... and while that is nothing new, or so frightening, I have too many pots of the burner 😂
    I know this will be a lovely mystery

  5. This will be my first mystery quilt and I am rather nervous but excited.

  6. Looks like another great mystery quilt is in store!

  7. Wow! These are some great prizes! Sounds like fun!

  8. It's always a pleasure and fun to be part your events, Cheryl! I am looking forward to seeing the mystery unfold :)

  10. This is going to be my first mystery quilt with you. Two of my sisters have convinced me to join in. I can't wait to stard pulling fabics from my stash and go shopping if needed...


Thanks so much for taking the time to leave a comment!
