A New Year, a New Quilt...

For those who are passionate about sewing and all things quilting...

Happy New Year!

I hope that you have all had a good Christmas break and are looking forward to a healthy 2022. Did you get to see family? We had a mixed time, with one side only able to do doorstep present dropping due to a niece isolating with Covid, and a short but uplifting visit to one set of parents on Christmas Day afternoon.

Mystery Quilt 2022

It’s exciting! The Mystery Quilt 2022 sew along is under way, with the Month 1 instructions sent out by email a short while ago. I’m really excited to see your fabric choices and the first blocks being made.

It’s not too late to join in! If you pop along to my Etsy shop your purchase will now include the first set of block instructions for Month 1. You’ll still need to send me your email details for the Month 2, 3 and 4 instructions, but it means that you can get started straight away. Just click on the button below.

I have of course made the quilt top which matches the colours in the instructions. At the time the lighting was poor and my daylight lamp gave up working, so the stage by stage photographs were not great.

So that I can sew along with you all and provide better photographs too, I am making another version with more subtle flannel fabrics. You can see the two sets below, with just the fabrics required for Month 1. For the flannel version I have gone for a scrappy background of 2 fabrics that have very similar tone and colour, as I hadn’t got enough of just one of them.

And here’s what you’ll be making ..😊

To get the most out of this sew along, share photographs and interact with others taking part, I recommend joining my Facebook Group. You’re welcome to join whether you have signed up to the Mystery Quilt or not, the more the merrier!
