Block-of-the-Month Programs

“New Canterbury” – the 2022 Quilters Companion BoM Quilt

Designed and created by Karen Styles, the 2022 Quilters Companion BoM Quilt is Karen’s latest block-of-the-month project.

Karen has created this beautiful quilt using her fabric range from Devonstone Collections – also named “New Canterbury”. Featuring lovely florals, stripes and ditsies in sweet pinks, mauves, warm cocoa browns, teals, lilacs and creams, they will transport you to the elegance of days past.

Inspiration for Karen’s fabric designs comes from the traditional quilts from the 1800’s. Her increasing love for antique English quilts and a connection to her English heritage are shown here in New Canterbury.

The BoM program will be run over 6 bi-monthly issues of the Quilters Companion magazine, commencing with the July 2022 issue #116. The pattern and instructions are only available through the magazine, which is available at Newsagents and Coles stores, or by subscription (Click here to subscribe to the magazine)

As the designer of the New Canterbury quilt, Somerset Patchwork is delighted to be a supplier of the fabric kit for the 2022 Block of the Month Quilt program.           

The quilt will be broken down into 6 parts comprising a centre block surrounded by 5 borders. Each border utilises different techniques such as hand and machine piecing, rotary cutting, and English paper pieced and appliqued hexagons. The finished quilt will measure approximately 66″ square (170cm).
