Mysteries and Quilt Alongs (Repeat of Jan. 3, 2023)

I have been trying to get a listing of Mystery and Quilt Along posts in the Heading Mysteries and Quilt Alongs below my header. I believe I set it up wrong the first time I did it and I couldn't figure out what went wrong. So I've removed it from Jan. 3 and reposted it today, Mar 30.  I doubt anyone will be starting any of these but I thought I would see if I could fix this listing. 

For over a year I've been searching out sew alongs and mysteries to share in my guild's newsletter.  I can't attend too many meetings of Faithful Circle Quilters in Columbia, Maryland. Gathering info on Sew Alongs and Mysteries is one thing I can do for the guild. It dawned on me recently that I could also share the information with my readers.  So at the beginning of each month I will  post (um, try to post) a listing of sew alongs and mysteries.  I will add a tab at the top so you can easily access the posts. Please feel free to share any info you have on mystery quilts and sew alongs that are coming up.  Here's what I found for January, 2023. 

Riley Blake Designs is offering a block challenge again this year.  It will run from January 3 to May 23 with new blocks coming out every Tuesday except the last Tuesday of the month.  Find out more about it.

Do you want an easy sew along? Look at the Nine Patch Sampler. You will get an email with block instructions every week for 9 weeks. The quilt along begins Jan 2.

Sherri McConnell is offering a block of the month again in 2023. Find all the details here: Sherri offers directions for 6" and 12" blocks. 

Pat Sloan is offering Sweet Childhood Memories Block a Week.  It starts Jan 4 and runs until May 10th.  Patterns are released each Wednesday.  You can download the supply list now.

Which Way to Witchville is a Block of the Month for a Facebook group called Cackling Stitches.  The BOM starts January 1 and runs until September 30. Blocks are available the first of each month and are free for the calendar month. Fabric requirement is available now.  For info check

Way back in September Quilting Gail announced the 2023 SAHRR that is starting now. SAHRR stands for Stay At Home Round Robin. You start with a center of your choice and add borders based on what is called for each round. You can read all about it here.

($)Book Nook Quilt Along begins January 15 and runs for 6 weeks. You will need to buy the pattern that will be available on Jan 6th.  If you like books this might be the perfect QAL for you. https://penandpaperpatterns.c


($)Lori Holt of Bee in My Bonnet along with the Fat Quarter Shop is sponsoring Sew Scrappy Spools Quilt Along. You must purchase a downloadable PDF of the block patterns available January 6.  It begins January 12, 2023.

($)Meadow Mist QAL for Board and Batten quilt. Must buy pattern.  Fabric requirements are available now.

I've added a dollar sign ($) in front of any that require a purchase.  Often there is a pattern or book that must be purchased.  Generally the cost is reasonable.  Sometimes a donation is requested for a worthy cause. 

As I said above please feel free to send me info about upcoming sew alongs.  I'll be happy to add to the next month's post. (Although, I will retain the right to not include an event at my discretion.)

I am happy to "enable" everyone with these opportunities. 

Happy Quilting! Bonnie
