We are so excited to have joined forces with fellow quilt shops, Quilter's Lane in New Zealand and Cotton Cuts in Canada to bring this awesome BOM programme to the UK and Europe.
Sheila is the owner of Quilters’ Lane, a local quilt shop in Masterton on the North Island of New Zealand. Born in the UK, Sheila has lived all over the world moving to NZ in 2002, she has been the owner of Quilter's Lane since 2011. She loves to teach classes and has taught a sell out class at Simply Solids in early 2017 and will be back to teach here in Spring 2018! Sheila designs quilts and write patterns, and has been designing her Mystery quilts since 2012. These Mysteries are different as they are not based on a set of blocks, but are more a set of puzzle pieces that come together at the end to create an overall quilt design.
Sheila has won awards for her quilts at New Zealand shows and has also been a tutor at the National Symposia. She continues to push the boundaries in her quilting and develop new and different ways of creating quilts. She enjoys a mixture of modern and traditional quilting and always continues to learn, having attended workshops with Joen Wolfrom, Nancy Crow, Sue Spargo, Kathy Doughty, Gail Garber, Susan Brubaker Knapp and many other wonderful tutors who have visited New Zealand over the years.
How Does The Mystery Quilt Work?
Every month for 10 months you will receive a bundle of PRE-CUT fabrics. You'll receive a selection of triangles, squares and strips and seriously, you'll have no cutting to do at all!
You will also receive instructions for turning your fabrics into a piece of the mystery quilt, then in the 10th month you'll get the key to complete the mystery quilt......
All packages will be posted on the 2nd Friday of the month starting in February 2018.
There are two sizes of quilt top: small 48" x 60" and large 72" x 72"
Quantities are limited so sign up as soon as you've decided on your colour scheme!
The small quilt is just £15 per month with FREE UK postage and the large quilt is £20 per month with FREE UK postage. For our European members you will pay a fixed monthly postage cost of just £2.50!
It's just so easy and so much fun! No cutting at all, simply sew the pieces together following the simple clear instructions that come with diagrams - even a beginner can do it!
It only takes a small amount of time to sew together your piece of the mystery each month, perfect for all you busy sewers out there.
It's fun to guess what the quilt will turn out like, after all you only know the fabric choices and finished size when you start!
Perfect for those who struggle rotary cutting due to poor vision or arthritis as everything is sent to you pre-cut!
Comes in a choice of modern colour schemes, using modern fabrics.
This is a no waste quilt, you're only paying for the actual fabric used for the quilt!
