Mystery Quilt Along Fabric Reveal


On November 16, 2017 Tracy at It’s A T-Sweets day and I announced a brand new Mystery Quilt Along. Details of the event can be found at the bottom of this post. In our post we indicated that the mystery fabric would be revealed early in December. Well, today is the day!

I am the lucky person to choose the fabric for this Quilt Along. Tracy will have the opportunity next time. For our first Mystery Quilt Along you must include the following fabric

Biscuits & Gravy Fluffer Nutter You Be You by BasicGrey for Moda Fabrics

Fluffer Nutter You Be You
Fluffer Nutter You Be You

I chose the fabric mostly because Fluffer Nutter makes me giggle every time I say it. 🙂 I also chose it because this Quilt Along, other than dictating your main fabric, gives you the chance to be creative. It allows You ‘to’ Be You.

There are no rules on what to make. You can make a pillow, place mat, table runner, lap quilt, bed quilt, mug rug, wall hanging or simply just a quilt square. The sky is the limit.

The Quilt Along begins January 1, 2018. Are you in? If so, leave a comment here or on Tracy’s blog. Unless you indicate otherwise we will add your name to our list of participants. This will give others the opportunity to watch your progress. 🙂 Remember you may also post photos to Instagram using this hashtag #mystery_qal.

We hope that you are as excited as we are to participate. 🙂 Share your enthusiasm by spreading the word to your family and friends as well as your readers. Let’s see how many people we can get involved.

There is one very important thing we almost forgot to mention, one lucky person will receive a prize. The name will be selected randomly. That lucky winner will receive one yard of fabric for our second Mystery Quilt Along FREE! Now isn’t that special! 🙂

Any questions? If not then get busy and purchase the Fluffer Nutter You Be You fabric and start brainstorming on how you will use it. Then on January 1, 2018 start creating your masterpiece.

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.

Very Similar

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.

A Prize

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.

Are You In?

Who wouldn’t want to make friends and maybe win a prize? Are you in? 🙂 You will find a complete list of the rules and guidelines listed below along with a Mystery QAL graphic that you can add to your posts.
