Macaron Mystery ++ 1 Month Until Kickoff!

The Macaron Mystery Quilt, a free monthly mystery quilt along will kick off in just one more month on Thursday, July 1st! 

The Macaron 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...


The monthly instructions will be posted to this blog as blog posts (and can always be found on the Macaron Mystery Page).  I will be attaching a link to the downloadable, easy to print, pdf versions of the instructions right into each monthly instruction blog post.  There is no need to sign up to get the instructions, they will be posted here each month.

To make sure that you do not miss any posts, make sure that you are subscribed to the blog (here are some links for following... BloglovinEmail).


We will have many prizes which will be given out randomly to quilters who submit finished quilts or quilt tops to the reveal parade in April 2022.  I will be posting about the sponsors and prizes in about two weeks.


Want to join in the fun but making a mystery quilt is not your thing? I totally understand and 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.
  • This sign up is only for a sneak peek and will not be used for sending out instructions.
  • This is a fresh signup so if you want the sneak peek you need to sign up, even if you had signed up for last year's sneak peek. 

We have over 8,000 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.


There is no need to purchase a kit to take part in the mystery quilt along, but for those that would like to purchase a quilt kit, there will be kits offered (more info and links will be posted on July 1st)


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).


If you have any questions regarding my mystery quilts you can e-mail me at or leave your question in a comment below.



  1. Can't wait! I missed last year's and loved the final outcome of it!

  2. So looking forward to this QAL!!

  3. Oh dear, seems like I keep joining QALs at the moment & think with a name like Macaron, I may have to join in and lucky a couple of the others will be nearly finished by the time I need to start sewing on this one. I enjoyed your Magnolia Mystery & although I didn't get the Plus one done, due to a fabric issue, I've just taken what I did do off the big machine to do the binding & it has become a baby quilt for gifting. Looking forward to seeing what everyone does. Take care, stay safe & hugs from a cool down under.

  4. I'm looking forward to another fun mystery. I'm hoping to have Morewood off to the quilters before we get to July.


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