Mysteries and Quilt Alongs -- February

Good Grief!  How can it already be February 8th?  I completely forgot to write a post on mysteries and quilt alongs from February.   Here's what I found at the end of January.

Check out Coriander Quilts latest mystery quilt Sunny Patches.  I really like the setting she has shown here. A new announcement was made February 8 listing the start date as March 18, 2023.  It will run until October. 

The Fat Quarter Shop is sponsoring Stronger Together Quilt Pattern and Stitch Pattern to support the United Negro College Fund. They have provided free patterns and ask for a $15 donation to their campaign for UNCF.  

Carole, who blogs at From My Carolina Home, is sharing a new mystery quilt called Scrap Dance Quadrille. You can find fabric and cutting directions at that link. Clues will be posted  on the second Friday of each month, beginning on  February 10 and going for 6 months.

Join Edyta Sitar in her Season in Blue quilt along.  You will make various blocks from the book "Season in Blue" to make a sampler quilt.  $ for book 

Bess of Side Lake Stitch is offering a Quilt Along for her pattern Pine Tree Quilt.  It begins on February 8 and will run for 6 weeks.  $ for pattern.  

This last quilt along is over but the free pattern is still available.  Wendy Shepherd, who blogs at Ivory Springs, designed the pattern and used it for a weekend quilt along.  Find the link to the pattern here.  I was thinking of making it in a bit larger size so I could use my Accuquilt Go half square triangle die. 

AccuQuilt and "American Patchwork and Quilting" are cosponsoring a quilt along in February. It features Accuquilt Cubes but rotary cutting instructions are included.  Here's a link to the cutting instructions.   It is recommended that you join AQS Quilting Project Parade Group on Facebook to keep up with all the info about this quilt along. Cutting and sewing begin on February 15. AQS and AccuQuilt will be presenting a quilt along every other month. 

If you know of mystery quilts or sew alongs that are coming up in the next few months please share them with me.  I know I miss a lot of them because I also want to spend time quilting! (Who knew surfing the internet took so much time!) 

I'm linking with these Linky parties.

Midweek Makers 

Wednesday Wait Loss 

Needle and Thread Thursday 

Because I haven't shared any photographs this week I thought I'd include this little one I took of the "newspaper" fabric I plan to use as the backing of my Spider Web quilt.  I'll share more of it when I get the quilt done. (This doesn't sound as funny as the rest but I found it humorous because it is announcing the fabric that it was printed on.) 

Happy Quilting All! Bonnie 


  1. Thank you for the links Bonnie! Some of them are tempting, but right now it's a big NO! Way too many other UFOs to finish, which is the goal this year.

  2. I haven’t participated in a mystery in over a year. I’m lucky to get my own projects started anymore. Cute backing fabric.

  3. Such cute fabric for a backing! Thanks for sharing on Wednesday Wait Loss.

  4. That's a really fun fabric you have for the backing. I love a good mystery quilt along, but I think I'll pass on adding any more to my queue right now.

  5. How nice to have all these links - thank you! Love that newspaper backing - so cute!


Thanks for visiting. Let me know what you're thinking about.
