The American Quilters Society is hosting a modern Mystery Quilt. The quilt was designed by Weeks Ringle and Bill Kerr, authors of Quilts Made Modern. The best part? Its free! It is a 6 part/week Mystery Quilt, and part 1 is up now. Part 2 will be up next week.
Because this is a free quilt-a-long, I would love for everyone to participate and send me pictures of your progress week to week! I will post pictures as we go, and then after the last installment we will have a final reveal of everyone’s finished quilt tops! You will get to vote for your favorite, and the top with the most votes will win a fat quarter pack! That’s right! I will put together a packet of 5 fresh modern fat quarters for one of my lucky readers to win! So please, share this with all your friends and lets have some fun!
The deadline for submissions will be November 14th, 2012. Voting will run from November 15th to November 25th, and the Winner(s) will be announced November 26th. Voting Closed.
1. Comment below so I know how many people interested.
For every 10 entrants I will add a Fat Quarter Packet. If there are more than 10 entries we will have a first, second and third place!
2. Encourage your friends to follow the blog and vote for your quilt! The more followers, the more votes!
3. Send a photo of your finished quilt top ( it does not have to be quilted) by November 14th, 2012
Here is the link! I can’t wait to see what everyone comes up with!
This challenge will be open to international participants as well! Quilting is its own language, one that is spoken with color and thread and heard with the eyes, and understood by all!

I have sections 1 through 4, but due to illness was unable to get parts 5 and 6 to complete the quilt. Is there anyway that I can do that?? I would love to have the pattern and begin putting it together now since I missed out earlier. The designers reside in my home state, and I would love to give this a try. Thanks so much.
I have those sections for you =) I will send them to you asap!
I found a photo of this quilt and wondered about the sizes of the rectangles and the circles. I bought cloth and would like to start if possible before June. Thanks
I will send you the files 🙂 i would love to see a picture when its done!
I got the first weeks pattern and then got busy and didn’t get anymore of them. Do you have the rest of the patterns? Thanks
I started this, but, lost track of the pattern. Can you send me the link or the pattern so I can get this one finished??? Thanks so much
