Mystery Quilt Alongs Sparkling Sampler

Quilt Along Fabric Pull

Are you excited? I know I am. There is only one month to go before the first-ever Create with Claudia Mystery Quilt Along begins. I’ve been working hard to get everything ready, and that includes my quilt along fabric pull.

I saw these bright and cheerful fabrics on line at the Fat Quarter Shop, and immediately fell in love with them. I knew that they would be perfect for this quilt along.

Not being able to resist any of them, I ended up buying the bundle, adding the navy floral print, and finishing off my choices by including the simple off-white with the mini green dot for the background fabric.

Because I didn’t need as much fabric as I had purchased, I ended up with plenty left over in some of the colors, but that is ok, I can make a scrap quilt with them.

My Quilt Along Fabric Pull For the Blog Posts

The fabrics that I purchased for the blog posts are all from various Moda collections which include:

  • Best Friends Forever by Stacy Iest Hsu
  • Flower Sacks by Me and My Sister
  • Sweet Harmony by American Jane
  • Essential Dots

For folks that like to learn by watching a video, I will also be doing a monthly video tutorial. You will be able to find them on my YouTube channel.

Christmas version of the Create with Claudia 2020 Mystery Quilt Along Fabric Pull - For the video

For the videos I decided to make a Christmas version of the mystery quilt. The fabrics I chose were various pieces that I have had in my fabric stash for years. Most of them are not true Christmas prints. Instead they are various reds, greens and golds that I thought went well together.

Have you done your quilt along fabric pull yet?

If you’ve already pulled your fabrics, show them off so we can all see! Use the hashtag #createwithclaudiaqal and post them to social media.

If you haven’t, no problem. Start raiding your fabric stash to see what you come up with. This quilt is a great way to use up some larger scraps you may have.

Everything you need to know about the quilt along can be found on this blog post.

I hope you will be joining in on the fun.

    Excited about joining. Will we need a fat quarter or equivalent of the non background fabric each month?

      Glad you will be joining in! That is a tough question because each month has different requirements. I wrote a post about the quilt along & fabric needs (the link is on my home page). I do use the same background fabric each month. We also don’t do 8 blocks every month (just 2 of the months). Many of the months don’t need fat quarters.

    Just joined today. Finishing July block this eve. I will be doing a kitchen wall hanging with the blocks, therefore, I’m not doing all of the blocks just one for each month. Is there a place to post pictures of completed blocks? I would like to see others and what they’ve completed. Thank you so much for this opportunity totally enjoying this 2020 mystery. I particularly really enjoyed learning how to do flying geese today with the method that you used. First time for everything. Thank you again., Sharon, North West California.

      Great! I’m glad you are joining in. There is a facebook group here: where people are posting blocks. Also, people have been posting them on Instagram using the hashtag #createwithclaudiaqal so you can see some there too.
