Mystery Quilt 2021


Registration for this event is now closed.


What's a mystery quilt event? Participants in the event receive templates to create a quilt without having seen the final design. For this Ships & Violins event, participants will be making a Constellations Series-inspired wall hanging (24" x 24"). If you like The Square of Pegasus and Orion's Spur, you'll love the third design!

How does it work?

You must be registered to participate. Participants will receive details on fabric requirements, colour palette tips and options, and materials required to guide them in preparing for the event. From there, you'll receive two templates per week for the course of three months. Once all the templates have been pieced, you'll receive instructions for the final assembly and your own PDF copy of the pattern.

I've never paper pieced. Can I still participate?

Yes! Absolutely. In fact, you may feel less intimidated by the technique if you approach it one template at a time. I'll be available to provide support and share tips and tricks to ensure you're successful!

Why participate?

It's a great way to get to know other quilters and be part of an exclusive experience!

When does it start?
