I recommend taking a look at the fabric revealed and joining along :)

It's a T-Sweets day!

I am very happy to reveal the challenge fabric for the first Mystery Quilt Along that starts January 1, 2018. This is a unique QAL in that the participants all use the same challenge fabric along with any others fabrics of their choice to make a quilted project. They choose the actual quilt or project themselves. It is a MYSTERY to the rest of us! How fun is that?!
