A Scrappy Happy Holidays Mystery Sew Along!


*Note: Subscription for this Mystery Sew Along has closed.

I'm excited to announce that I will be hosting a mystery sew along throughout 2019! You may have noticed a new pop up when you arrived at my blog. If you sign up through that pop up you'll automatically be subscribed to A Scrappy Happy Holidays Mystery Sew Along!

This is the first time I've ever tried to do something like this through my blog so I hope you'll bear with me while I try to navigate the technology side of setting up a mailing list and other techy stuff.

Although I'm still finalizing all the details, here's what I know now:
  • This sew along will be a mystery. You will not know what the finished quilt will look like until the end of the sew along. 
  • This sew along has a Christmas theme.
  • The quilt will finish as a 54" x 54" table topper or wallhanging.
  • A Bonus Border pattern will be provided at the end to enlarge the quilt to 72" x 72" if desired.
  • This quilt was designed to use scraps. You'll want at least four different colors of scraps plus background. I used red, green, blue and gold when designing the quilt.
  • You'll receive a pattern each month (January - November) with instructions to complete a block or section in the quilt. Patterns will be sent out some time in the later half of the month (specific date yet to be determined).
  • There is no cost to join the sew along.
  • Only positive conversations/comments are welcome. If I make a mistake somewhere or you would like to suggest a better way for me to host this sew along, please notify me in a pleasant and positive way. As I said earlier, this is a first for me so I'm sure there will be some glitches but I will try my very best to make this a fun sew along!
I hope you'll join me for A Scrappy Happy Holiday Mystery in 2019!

  1. I look forward to taking part in this mystery Christmas quilt. My hubby has made me a quilting/sewing unit. So this will be a fun way to use this. Happy Stitching.

  2. Sounds like fun! BTW, it saddens me that you had to leave a note about positive comments only. We need to support each other in this world.

  3. No pop-up on my blog. I am interested, though, and I'm posting this on QuiltBOM to spread the word. Best of luck with your first one. I hope it is so successful, you go on to do more! I never get enough of Christmas. =)

  12. Hi- I would love to join in the sew-along, however I couldn't find the pop up. Thank you for being so adventurous in creating a sew along. Also as previously mention, it is a shame in the quilt world, people need to be reminded leave only positive comments. Again, thank you. Deb.

  15. I'm going to try to make my family members all a lap sized Christmas quilt this year. I generally don't join Quilt alongs because I kind of get lost. I lose track of when new posts are going up and get behind, it just ends up a mess. I really appreciate it when the quilt along sends out an email when a new block comes out, but that's a lot to ask of you. I did join your Facebook and Instagram pages, so I hope that helps me.
