Mosaic Mystery Quilt ++ Sponsors & Prizes

Only two weeks until the kick off of the Mosaic Mystery Quilt Along!  I am so excited and I hope you are too!  You can find out all about the quilt along here including dates, the non-mystery quilt option, and Facebook group.

New this year, in addition to prizes given out at the reveal parade in April 2020, we are also going to have monthly prizes!  All prizes will be given out randomly to those that enter the monthly and reveal parade link parties.

Also new this year is that to enter the monthly and reveal parade prizes, you will be uploading your in-progress and finished pictures into a linky party.  You do not have to have a blog, Facebook, or Instagram to enter, you can upload a picture directly from your computer and I will be posting a test linky party next Thursday you can practice with.

I want to thank all of our eighteen (18!!) sponsors for generously donating prizes for this quilt along!  Without further ado, here are the sponsors in random order...

  1. Wow! That’s quite the line up! You’ve been busy!

  2. Always enjoy your mystery. I also like to downsize the quilt - can you advise whether I should make the units smaller or make less units?

  3. All my favourite sponsors!
    A fabulous mystery plus chances to win great prizes... how could I resist?!?!

  4. Terrific! Can't wait to get started.

  5. Wow! The prize line up is great Cheryl. How fun for all the quilters. Can't wait for this to get started. Also, I am so happy to be hosting prizes as well as providing kits for your followers. Love working with you. :-)

  6. A wonderful list of sponsors! We can't wait to get started in July.

  7. So excited that the posts for progress will be via linky--I find that much easier to browse through than facebook. Looking forward to it!

  8. I'm excited to play along with another mystery.

  9. I'm super excited Cheryl! I'm almost finished quilting your Mystery quilt from two years ago. I love it and I'm sure I'll love this one just as much. Plus, I can't wait to go fabric shopping.

  10. Wonderful! Looking so forward to the start of this Mystery.

  11. I never win prizes, but I'm excited to make a mystery quilt (never done this before) and use up some fabric from my stash, some of it over 20 years old.

  12. I'm new here and I'm confused.

    1. Is there a way to get to the monthly clue easily? I've been trying all kinds of things and finally found it by hit or miss.

    2. Is there a way to print the clue?

    3. Where can I find the linky party?

    1. Hi Joanne - All of the links can be found right here on the blog. The instructions are published the first Thursday of every month. You can subscribe to the blog postings (bloglovin or via e-mail) to make sure that you get every post about the quilt along. Thanks!
