Wow where is 2021 going? The launch of the second Mystery Quilt is almost upon us and I’m excited to share my fabric choices with you all.
The quilt for Summer/Autumn 2021 is called Olympia and each of my three colourway options are named after British female medal winners. I chose to celebrate some of our most successful athletes by honouring them with their very own Mystery Quilt. More on that when I introduce each colourway.
What is a Mystery Quilt?
If you have never heard of the Mystery Quilt then let me fill you in with what is on offer. This is a quilt designed by Sheila Christensen @mysteryquilter and it is a puzzle quilt over 10 months.
Each parcel contains that month’s puzzle instructions and all the pre-cut fabric pieces to make the blocks. Pieces are kept simple: triangles, squares and rectangles and at the end the final puzzle is revealed to give you a beautiful finished quilt top.
It is a Mystery or puzzle as you don’t know what the finished quilt will look like until the final reveal, but the quilts are very cleverly designed by Sheila and always turn out fabulous.
What are my options?
Each of these three colourways I have carefully selected for you to choose from so I hope you see something that takes your fancy?
Laura Kenny (néeTrott) is GB’s most successful Olympic female competitor in any sport. She has four Gold medals in her discipline of cycling.
This colourway I selected for Laura is a combination of some of my favourite Trinket prints with some amazing coordinating prints from Sunprints 2019, 2020 & 2021.
I just love how the Alison Glass prints work so well together across all these collections.
Charlotte Dujardin is a British dressage rider and is GB’s most successful Olympic equestrian. She holds three gold and one silver medal.
This collection named after Charlotte is using Amy Sinibaldi’s Little Town fabric, my first Art Gallery Fabric collection and my first Christmas themed Mystery too!
I know that this is going to be super popular already and I can see me needing to order more fabrics. The beauty of AGF mean that I can repeat orders and I am not limited like I am with more traditional fabric ordering methods.
Katherine Grainger is one of GB’s most decorated female Olympians. She holds five olympic medals in total. She has a gold medal and four silver medals spanning a rowing career from 2000 through to 2016.
I chose Katherine to represent another Alison Glass collection, this time we have a range of purples with blues and greens.
A combination of floral ditzy prints alongside her trademark motif prints featuring birds, boats, scissors and everything in between.
