Mysteries and Quilt Alongs April

Yea! I've finally gotten the Mysteries and Quilt Along header corrected.  You can click on the header and see all the M & QAL posts  I've written. (Yes, I never did one for March.) I hope I'll get one written early each month.

Here's what's new in April: 

The first three quilt alongs are sponsored by the Fat Quarter Shop.  

Home Again Quilt Along is beginning April 4, running until May 2.  You will need to purchase the pattern (available as a PDF download.) Check out the pattern and info here:

Triangles on a Roll Quilt Along by the Fat Quarter Shop.  This quilt along features 2”, 3”, and 4” finished half square triangles which can be made using Triangles on a Roll. (Anybody else have lots of these rolls hanging around in their stash?)  The quilt will finish at 74.5” square.  This is a fat quarter friendly quilt. The pattern will release on March 30 and the QAL will run for seven weeks. $ if you need to buy Triangles on a Roll although you can choose a different method to making the triangles.

Vintage Kite quilt along will have a kick off event and and full pattern release starting 4/11. The quilt along will start 4/12. Read more about it $ if you buy the foundation  papers.

Jacqueline Steves new BOM called Sew Happy. Will run from May to September with patterns being emailed on the 2nd Monday of the month. 

Did you know the National Quilt Museum has artists in their collection develop  a block of the month? Neither did I. See and download  Round 4 blocks here: If you continue down the page other rounds are still available.  You can also join their Facebook group. I’ll add Round 5 info for the May newsletter. released info about a free block of the month in February. Currently there are links to an introduction, tutorial, and fabric requirements. It appears block instructions begin April 20 and continues through December 20. Log Cabin Love. 

If you are sponsoring a Mystery Quilt or Quilt Along please feel free to send me the information.  I'll add it the month before it begins.  If you know of new listings that are starting soon -- let me know so I can include it here.  

I've been toying with the idea of doing the Triangles on a Roll sew along that is sponsored by the Fat Quarter Shop.  I have two of the three sizes needed and I'd really like to use some of them up.  For the sizes I don't have I'm sure I can figure out a different way to make them. 

What event strikes your fancy? 

Happy Quilting All! Bonnie 



  1. Thanks for the listing, Bonnie. I get excited about QALs and then get distracted.

  2. Thanks for all the links. I'm just like Nann - I get excited then distracted. But that Jacquelynn Steves one looks interesting.


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