Mosaic Mystery Quilt

Welcome to the Mosaic Mystery Quilt page!  This is my fifth mystery quilt along and I am so excited for it to start.

The Mosaic Mystery Quilt is a free quilt-along that will run from July 2019 through April 2020 with a set of directions revealed the first Thursday of every month. The Mosaic Mystery is a lap size design, that can easily be made larger with the addition of borders.

1. Quilt-along Instructions 

The monthly instructions 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). The instruction posts will contain the monthly piecing instructions as well as a link to an easily printable pdf that you can print and download. The pdf's will be available until the reveal parade and then a pdf of the full pattern will be available for sale via Etsy (but the instructions will always remain in the blog posts).

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... Bloglovin, Email).

2. Button - I have made a button for the mystery quilt :) If you decide to join in on the quilt-a-long and have a blog I would love it if you posted the button.

3. Prizes - We will have prizes! Prizes will be given out randomly to quilters who submit quilts or quilt tops to the reveal parade in April 2020. More information about prizes will be posted closer to the start date. 

4. The Un-Mystery Quilt - 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 4th 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. 

5. Facebook Group - We have almost 4,000 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).
