Prairie Garden -- A Quilt Dakota Mystery

Join Us for a FUN filled NEW mystery sew along starting early Oct and running through mid Nov. 

This sew along will feature a new pattern designed by Joanie Holton.  Joanie has 27 years of industry and quilting experience, is the owner of Tailormade by Design, has co-authored two books, and was just published in the Love of Quilting March-June 2024 issue!

Want to join in the fun?  Pick up a kit from any 2024 Quilt Dakota participating shop!  Some shops will have kits ready to go, some will have displays with inspiration of bolts that will work well for the quilt, and others will work with your fabric choices make the kit of your dreams!  

You do not have to be participating in the shop to sew along in the mystery.   Kits can be mailed.  Kits can be purchased after the event as well!

Quilt will finish at 60 x 74 


We will have tips and tricks, weekly checks with Quilt Dakota prize bundles, and one lucky quilt top finisher will WIN free edge to edge longarm quilting form Harvest Moon Quilting by Wendy Martin.  

We will contact you with a welcome email by Sept. 23rd with the mystery schedule, Facebook group invite, and other info. 

Only those that purchase a kit will receive the pattern. The shop will collect your name, email, and phone number.  Pattern will be delivered via email only.  

If you have questions or do not receive a email, please email or contact Quilt Dakota on Facebook messenger.

***While you do not have to be on Facebook to participate, we will run all of the contests on Facebook.
