2. Prizes - There are tons of great prizes for the Malted Mystery Quilt including thread, fabric, patterns, long arm quilting, and more!  See all of the sponsors and prizes here.

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. The Un-Mystery Quilt - There will be a sneak peek option for those that would like to see the design before deciding to join in.  Click the link below for the sneak peek of the mystery quilt:


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

5. Facebook Group - We have over 11,000 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.


6. 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).

  21. Looking forward to the Sneak Peak! Thank you so much for that option . I have done mystery quilts in the past with mixed results and feel so much more confident in my fabric choices when I know what the finished product will look like. Did I miss the finished size of the quilt, or will that be revealed when we see the sneak peak?

    1. Yes, I like to plan...as have had some wacky looking mystery quilts. I've limited the amount of mystery ones I do because of that. I do really love how some people's mystery quilts end up so very balanced, coordinated, etc. Mine look scrappy. I believe she said throw sized when we are finished.
