Macaron Mystery Quilt-Along Announcement!!!

I am very excited to announce that the next mystery quilt, the Macaron Mystery Quilt, will begin in about two months on Thursday, July 1st! 



The Macaron Mystery Quilt is a free quilt-along that will run from July 2021 through April 2022 with a set of directions revealed the first Thursday of every month.

We will kick off the quilt-along on Thursday, July 1st 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 upcoming mystery quilt...


1. Quilt-along Instructions -The monthly instructions (always on the first Thursday of each month) 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) and within each instructional post, there will be a link to an easy to print, downloadable version of the instructions.


2. Videos - Each Friday after the monthly instructions are posted, I will use Facebook Live to post about the instructions and give some tips and tricks for the month. These videos are uploaded to my Meadow Mist Designs Youtube channel so you can easily find and view them. Be sure to subscribe to the Youtube channel to make sure you do not miss any :)


3. Quilt Kits - A quilt kit is not required for this quilt along, but for those that would like that option, I am working with a number of quilt shops to offer quilt kits in variety of styles and colors. 


4. Prizes - There are going to be tons of great prizes for the Macaron Mystery Quilt!  Details to be announced. 


5. The Un-Mystery Quilt - Want to join in the fun but making a mystery quilt is not your thing? I totally understand and will offer a sneak peek of the design!

If you would like to see the final pattern to decide whether to join in, or to help pick colors, you can sign up to receive the Un-Mystery Quilt Sneak Peek. The sneak peek will be sent out on Thursday, July 1st and will contain the sneak peek, multiple colorway renderings, and a coloring page.


The only rule is that you have to keep the design completely to yourself as to not spoil anyone else's surprise.

6. Facebook Group - We have 8,000 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.


7. 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).


8. Questions? If you have any questions regarding my mystery quilts you can e-mail me at MMDmysteryquilts@gmail.com or leave your question in a comment below.


Morewood Mystery Quilt Reminder - The deadline to link up your picture for the reveal parade and for prizes is tonight 4/12 at midnight (EDT).  You can e-mail me (MMDmysteryquilts@gmail.com) your picture and I can upload it for you (but I do go to bed at about 10pm).
