Daisy Chain Mystery QAL {One Month To Go!}

I am so excited that one month from today is the official kick off of the Daisy Chain Mystery QAL!


Today I'm going to share some of the details (but not all!) to entice you to come along with me on this quilty journey!

First and foremost, the mystery quilt will be offered in *FOUR* sizes (approximate total yardages given):
Baby 36" square (2.5 yards)
Throw 60" square (4.75 yards)
Twin 96" x 72" (7.5 yards)
Queen 96" square (10.5 yards)

The units will *not* be different sizes for differently sized quilts, the larger quilts just use more units and blocks.

This quilt is designed so that you can use just yardage, just scraps, or a combination of scraps and yardage. The cutting and piecing will work with pre-cuts too -- jelly rolls, charm packs, layer cakes, and I think it would be especially lovely with a fat quarter or fat eighth bundle.

This quilt is also designed to be easily accomplished by a confident beginner but also fun and enjoyable for quilters of an experienced persuasion as well. I had a lot of fun making my original tester quilt and I am looking forward to making my second version alongside all of you during this QAL.

We are starting our QAL about a month earlier than we do typically -- we'll be starting in February rather than March! -- and I know that you have a LOT of choices for new QALs that start early in the year, but I really hope that you will join us!

The printable versions of the directions will be available on Payhip. We hope that you'll follow us there and join our HBD Quilts Facebook group for discussion, tips, and hints!

I'm really proud of this quilt design -- I worked really hard to design a quilt that I loved and was excited to make and hope that you'll feel the same about the quilt!

As always, thank you for reading my blog and supporting Honey, Bunny, and Doll quilts!

  2. Sounds like fun, but with work travel planned for two of the months and a family wedding for another, I'm not going to be able to keep up. So I'll just follow along for this one.
