2018 Project Linus Mystery Quilt

Since I started social quilting, there are two mystery quilts I know that I will participate in each year. The first is Bonnie Hunter's mystery quilt, which starts around Halloween and promises to make something gorgeous out of scraps. The other is the annual mystery quilt by Project Linus

If you aren't aware, Project Linus is an organization that gives blankets and quilts to children in hospitals, shelters, social service agencies, or anywhere that a child might be in need of a big hug.

The Project Linus mystery quilt is an annual fundraiser for the organization that helps in a couple of ways. The $15 entry fee raises money, and the resulting quilts are then donated to local chapters of Project Linus to be distributed to kids.

Last year's mystery quilt was called "Exploring the World with Ethan." I loved the international theme, so it was a happy accident that I learned about it. I really enjoyed the process and the other quilters I met through the Facebook group, so I knew I would want to participate again this year.

If you are a quilter looking for a fun project, the 2018 theme has been announced.

  1. Sounds like fun! I'll see if I can work it in.

  2. I've never heard that they sponsor a mystery! Great idea! Thanks for sharing this on Wednesday Wait Loss.

  3. Thanks for the info.... I'll look into it but I am traveling in September and early October so I may just have to skip it. But I do like supporting quilts for various kids.

  4. Thanks for the heads up! This is a great idea.


We love hearing from you!
