Gosia of Quilts my Way is hosting the Geometric Fun Quilt Along. There will be 20 parts shared on the first of each month at her blog. Blocks are available at $1 each in Gosia's Etsy shop or for free on the day of release to members of her Facebook group. At the end of the event, participants can submit  an unlimited number of quilts sewn according to the pattern and shared on Facebook or Instagram using #GeometricFun for a chance to win prizes.

Esther Aliu is hosting a Quilt Along, Wrapt in Love until November 15th. The 82" square quilt features four unique flowers and a border of basket blocks beneath curvy vines. The pattern is available exclusively to her Quilt Group members (in the Group files area), and will not be for sale until 2020.

Cheryl of Meadow Mist Designs is hosting the Mosaic Mystery Quilt Along from July - April. Directions will release the first Thursday of each month, beginning July 4th with fabric requirements and hints about selection. Prizes will be awarded randomly to those who submit finished tops/quilts in April. Cheryl offers an un-mystery option and a Facebook group for camaraderie.

Moda is hosting, At the Seashore, an ocean-themed quilt along this summer. There will be lots of options, but quilt settings will be offered ahead of time.
