June Mysteries and Quilt Alongs

Here's my listing of new Mysteries and Quilt Alongs for June. But first a big thank you to Sharon Kwilter who passed on the info about Laundry Basket Quilts spring Mystery and the Grid Girls mystery. Sharon blogs at Dragon's Heart Quilting and Crafts

If you know of upcoming mysteries or quilt alongs please feel free to pass the information on to me. I do tend to hold listings to closer to when they start. For instance I know there's a stitch along starting in October but I won't be listing it until closer to the start date.   

First up is a Quilt Along beginning 6/1 with All People Quilt. You will need to purchase the June 2023 issue of American Patchwork and Quilting magazine.  The web site gives some alternative places to buy the pattern if you can't find it locally. $

Dresden Plate is a free block of the week program that began on May 15, 2023.  You must sign up to receive the weekly emails for the link to the patterns. This is sponsored by Piecing the Past Quilts.

The Fat Quarter Shop is sponsoring Haunted Halloween with a Mystery Quilt and Stitch along. Every Tuesday in June they will release a new block. The  quilt will end up 31.5” x 32.5”.  To join in, all you have to do is gather your supplies  and visit each Tuesday in June to download the free mystery patterns. More information is here

Laundry Basket Quilts will begin Spring Mystery Quilt as a weekly event from May 31 to July 13. Find out more about this mystery at Both piecing and appliqué are included.  The quilt will finish at 53.5”  x 53.5”.  Fabric requirements  have been released with optional fabric bundles. 

For those of you who use Creative Grids rulers you might want to check out the private Grid Girls Facebook group.  The Grid Girls will be starting a mystery quilt. You should sign into Facebook and search for Grid Girls. You will have to join it to find out about the mystery.   (Disclaimer: I’ve been informed about this but I’m not a member.)

Here's my Melodic Mystery quilt from Meadow Mist Designs that finished earlier this year. Last month I mentioned the newest mystery by Cheryl, Malted Mystery. Check last month's Mysteries and Quilt Alongs for details.  

Have you got some hints about doing mystery quilts and quilt alongs?  Please feel free to share them in the comments section.  I will round them up and share during one of my monthly Mysteries and Quilt Alongs post.  

I'm linking this up with the following Linky Parties.  Take some time to enjoy seeing what other quilters are up to this week.

Happy Quilting All! Bonnie 


  1. I enjoy doing a mystery qulit at least once every year! Nice job on your quilt!

  2. I definitely shouldn't have read this post. I love a good mystery quilt along, but I'm already booked for June, so I'm going to have to pass. Maybe I'll just save some of the blocks from the Fat Quarter Shop. I tend to fall behind on most any mystery despite my best intentions. My one hint is to make enough component parts of a block to be able to assemble one block by the end of the mystery. That way you at least have a guide on where the pieces go and what the colors were.

  3. What a pretty quilt! I love purple and green together. Thanks for sharing on my weekly show and tell, Wednesday Wait Loss.

  4. Wooooow, love your Melodic Mystery finish, Bonnie! How are you going to quilt it?? I found it interesting to click on each of the QALs. They sure are tempting!?! Gudrun @ GE Designs just announced a new "Quickie QAL" on Thursday, June 29th at 7 PM Central on YouTube:


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