Mystery QAL Fabric Reveal!

I am very happy to reveal the challenge fabric for the first Mystery Quilt Along that starts January 1, 2018. This is a unique QAL in that the participants all use the same challenge fabric along with any others fabrics of their choice to make a quilted project. They choose the actual quilt or project themselves. It is a MYSTERY to the rest of us! How fun is that?!

Cindy over @In a Stitch Quilting and I dreamed this adventure up a few months ago. We have had fun planning and preparing the event for anyone who might like to join along. We hope YOU will find a pattern you like and surprise us all with something unique and totally you!

Here are the rules if you want to join along

Large projects or small projects, it doesn’t matter. Whatever tickles your fancy is the perfect project;)

Cindy chose our first fabric and she made it easy on us. Without any more talk, drum roll please….. the fabric is………..

Biscuits and Gravy Fluffer Nutter You be You

Cindy says she chose this fabric because she thought the name was so cute. I think it is perfect because the name includes “You Be You” and that is exactly what this MYSTERY QAL is all about –You being You and choosing what You like!

This fabric is available at Fat Quarter shop and other online stores. You may even be able to pick up a fat quarter or two at your local quilt store.

If you are interested in joining us, please leave a comment below and we will add you to the participant list.

Here is the list of those who said they are interested in joining along so far:

For sure joining the fun-

Thinking about joining the fun

I am so excited to begin sewing in January. I have ordered my Fluffer Nutter fabric and am thinking about projects. I THINK I know what I am going to make, but I won’t tell because, shhhhh, it is a MYSTERY!

Thank you for dropping by and have a SWEET rest of your day!

Mystery Quilt Along

Would you like to participate in an unusual quilt along? Cindy from Inastitchquilting.com and I will be hosting a brand new MysteryQuilt Along (QAL) beginning January 1, 2018.

What’s so unusual, you might ask? Well, back in September, Cindy wrote a post that intrigued me. It was called the Window Box Quilt. In that post she spoke of a challenge initiated by a group of her friends. The centerpiece of the challenge was one fabric. The only requirement of the challenge was that the focus fabric had to be present in their art piece. No other rules applied. They were free to use the fabric in any quantity to make whatever they chose.

Unfortunately the joint venture never got off the ground. I told Cindy that I would have joined in and we decided that this would be a fun adventure to try. We thought that maybe some of you might want to join us as well. 🙂

Very Similar

The rules of this MysteryQAL will be very similar. Early in December we will announce the chosen fabric. Once the fabric has been revealed, go ahead and purchase the fabric along with any other fabrics you want to include. Once your fabrics have been selected, YOU get to decide how you would like to use them. The fabric is the constant, the pattern is the MYSTERY! How fun is that?!

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. To make the QAL even more interesting visit the blogs of the other participants. Be sure to leave a kind comment along with your blog address so they can visit your site as well.

By visiting each others websites, we can support one another and create a community of potential friends. If you do not blog, you can still participate by posting your progress on Instagram using the hashtag #mystery_qal

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. If all goes well, we hope to have more than two people, Cindy and myself, participating. LOL! 🙂

Are You In?

I hope you are in! 🙂 Who wouldn’t want to make some friends and maybe win a prize? The complete list of the rules and guidelines has been provided below along with a Mystery QAL graphic that you can add to your posts.
