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


This has been my most asked question, how to join in on the Malted Mystery quilt?  There is no official sign up, list, or cost to join in the mystery quilt along.  Each set of instructions will be posted to this blog as a post on the first Thursday of each month.

To ensure you do not miss any of the posts, you can do any of the following:

  • Join the Meadow Mist Designs Newsletter, the newsletter typically is sent out the day after the instructions are posted with a link to that month's instructions.


Check out all of our generous sponsors and the prizes they are donating. All prizes will be given out randomly to those that enter the final reveal parade (finished quilt tops or finished quilts).  Be sure to scroll to the bottom for an awesome giveaway.
