Get out your stashes of fabric! Go buy new fabric! Finish all those UFO'S! And clear your schedule for the next 6 weeks, because it's time for QCA's 10th Mystery Quilt!
This quilt has been a long time coming. We've planned, prodded, diagrammed, and tested the quilt (designed by the awesome Jennifer of QCA!). This time around, we will be adding a little contest into the mix. Who doesn't love some friendly competition?
Mystery Quilt Calendar
The first step on the mystery quilt will be given on Monday September 1st. I have created a forum, Mystery Quilt #10, where each step will be posted. The schedule is as follows:
Sept. 1st: The first step is given
Each Monday a new step will be given: Sept 8, 15, 22, 29, Oct 6, 13.
Competed quilts should be posted on the QCA Show & Tell Gallery by October 20th. Please tag your quilt with Mystery Quilt #10 when you upload it.
But, QCA Rachel, why the deadline?
As I mentioned before, this mystery quilt has a contest and prize tied in with it. What is the contest?
After you post your finished mystery quilts on QCA, I will be opening up a voting center for anyone to vote on their favorite mystery quilt. Ask your friends, family, neighbors, waitress, anyone to come on to the site and vote for your completed mystery quilt. After one week, I will close the voting, and the person with the most votes will win a Mulberry Millie upright quilt basting frame valued at $200!
Let's run this down again:
The Mystery Quilt begins September 1st when the first step will be given. The last step will be given on Oct. 13th. To be entered into the contest for a Mulberry Millie quilt basting frame, a picture of the completed mystery quilt must be posted on the Show & Tell Gallery by October 20th with the tag: Mystery Quilt #10.
I will open up audience voting on Oct. 21st and close the voting on Oct. 28th. The quilt with the most votes wins!
I can't wait to start this adventure with you and see what your creative minds complete with the mystery quilt! Let's have fun with this and help each other along. Please quilters, post pictures, questions, struggles, triumphs on the mystery quilt forum as we go through this 6 week project. I am confident you will be pleased with the end results!
All my best,
