Mystery Quilt Revisited

Just over four months ago, my first APPLIQUE MYSTERY QUILT ALONG was completed. Have you finished yours yet?

Or did you miss out; and wish you had joined in.... no problem! You can purchase the pattern from my Craftsy store at the special SALE price of only $4.95. Check it out now; and save $4.00 during the month of September. 

Thank you to everyone that joined in on this spur-of-the-moment quilt along idea. I am honored to have shared those four months with you. And if you haven't had opportunity to complete yours yet, here's some new incentive to still complete it in 2014.....

Special Report:

I am planning to do another Applique Mystery Quilt Along... in 2015! This one will only be FREE if you receive a special invite from me, to participate. See details below.

For anyone that has made the 2014 project: "Life's A Journey" quilt, whether it was during the quilt along or by purchasing the pattern; and submits a photo of the quilt before the December 31, 2014 deadline; will receive a free invite, when it is available. (Approx. mid-January 2015.)
Please note: If you do receive an invite; you are not required to participate. This will give you the option; and I'll send further details to you, if you are interested. 
If you have already emailed me a photo of your quilt, you are already on the list to receive a free invite. 

I plan to post photos on this blog; soon, and wish to have others see your creative versions of this pattern. However, if your quilt is a gift for someone; and they haven't received it yet; please let me know in your email when I can post the photo.


Once you receive the free invite, you will email me back to confirm your interest; and only then receive the mystery quilt details. These will include: the supply list and design options for the project. 

TIMING  (Example: If the project begins on February 1, 2015; your invite will arrive mid-January; and this will give you about two weeks to purchase supplies and be ready to begin when the project opens.) 

At present, dates are approximate; and the project is still in the planning stages. But, here are some clues:
  • It is a small wall hanging quilt with an artsy flair; using fabrics in grays and blacks.
  • It will have applique; however, you may change it with one of the options!
  • It will be pieced and embellished in sections to finish up in only four to six weeks.
  • Adding color will be fun -- do it with applique, stitching, crayons, and/or embroidery.
  • Don't like grays and blacks; then replace any with brighter colors!
  • Is it perhaps time; to try a small quilt project that is done from start to finish, quickly?

Over the next couple of months, I want to test out my design to see how these options will turn out; and if it could be made into a larger project. More details forthcoming...

If you can't wait for the weekly clues; 
or need to know all the details at the start, 
or cannot submit a photo of your finished 2014 project to receive the free invite; 
the full pattern will be available for purchase at my Craftsy store. 
You can then decide if you want to follow along, or make it on your own schedule. 

Happy stitching!!
