A Mystery Quilt Along
Would you like to participate in an unusual quilt along? Tracy from It’s a T-Sweets day and I will be hosting a brand new Mystery Quilt Along (QAL) beginning January 1, 2018. What’s so unusual you might ask? Well, remember the post I shared back on September 29th? If you don’t then follow this link to the Window Box Quilt.
The centerpiece of the challenge was one fabric. The only requirement was that the focus fabric had to be present in our finished piece. No other rules applied. We could use the fabric in any quantity to make whatever we chose.
Tracy and I have decided to resurrect that challenge and share it with you here. You will find the details below.
The rules of this Mystery QAL will be very similar. Early in December we will announce the chosen fabric. Once the fabric has been revealed you have until January 1, 2018, to purchase the fabric along with any other you may want to include. Once your fabrics have been selected you must decide how you would like to use them. Then on January 1, 2018 visit our blogs and announce your intentions by leaving a comment. We will then add your blog address to our list of participants. You will have until March 31, 2018, to complete your item.
Blog About Your Progress
Throughout the three month challenge you are encouraged to blog about your progress. In your posts, please provide a link back to both of our blogs. To make the QAL even more interesting visit the blogs of the other participants, leave a comment announcing your participation as well as your blog address. By visiting each others websites we can support one another and create a community of potential friends.
The week after March 31, one lucky participant will receive one yard of the next mystery challenge fabric! The lucky winner will be randomly selected.

I hope to be in! I have to see how my budget is at that point. =) It will be fun to try this. I’m going to post it tomorrow on QuiltBOM on wordpress and maybe spread the word a little bit!
I hope you can join as well! It really doesn’t have to be expensive. You decide how much fabric you want to purchase as well what size item you would like to make. This is a one size fits all budgets project. Either way, I thank you for your comment and for your enthusiasm! 🙂
I am thinking about it! I enjoy both yours and Tracy’s blog (both of you have awesome taste in fabric!!!) 🙂
Tierney, we would love to have you! 🙂
Very cool, but I think 2018 might be the year to finish projects for me!
Good for you! I hope you accomplish all sorts of things! 🙂
I do too!
I need clarification on the fabric. Will there be one chosen fabric and we pick the rest? Then, it is up to us to design the block?
That’s correct! 🙂 You can make whatever you a want. A pillow, a wall hanging, a table runner or perhaps just a block.
Good Morning Cindy,
Sure, I will play along! I think I can handle two fairly easy quilt alongs starting January 1st! I will post about it closer to the start, and I started following Tracy too. If you have a FB page and create an event, I’ll join in too! ~smile~ Roseanne
Roseanne, we would be very happy to have you join us! You definitely can handle this! 🙂
