Magnolia Mystery Quilt Reveal Parade ++ Day 1

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

We have almost 200 versions total and they are all beautiful! Thank you so much to everyone who has been taking part or following along in the Magnolia 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 70 wonderful versions of the Magnolia 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).

Without further are some of the wonderful Magnolia Mystery Quilt finishes!
