Block-of-the-Month Programs

 

“Swivel” – the 2020 Quiltmania Mystery BoM Quilt

The 2020 Quiltmania Mystery Quilt was designed and created by multi-talented Sarah Maxwell – designer for Marcus Fabrics, pattern designer, author and co-owner of Homestead Hearth patchwork store in Mexico, Missouri.

Sarah has created a beautiful mystery quilt using her latest Marcus Fabrics collection – “Full Circle”. The collection builds on the inspiration she drew from various sources, including Judie Rothermel’s vast archive of prints, in combination with a desire to inject a vibrant, more contemporary palette into a line of reproduction fabrics.

And of course, there will be an exclusive “mystery” fabric which will only be made available to subscribers to the program.

Somerset Patchwork is delighted to be the sole Australian distributor of the fabric kits for the 2020 Mystery Block of the Month Quilt program.

Being a “Mystery” quilt, we can’t tell you a whole lot about it. The quilt will feature the shapes in the image at left as part of the design and when finished, will measure approximately 74″ square.

The pattern is suitable for hand piecing, or rotary cutting and machine piecing – or a mix of techniques as suits you.

Quiltmania’s 6 issues published through 2020 will include all the required templates for the quilt. The magazines can be ordered from us as part of your BoM subscription.

We have a LIMITED number of program subscriptions available due to fabric contraints, so order yours now!
