Well here we are, once again at the launch of the next Mystery Quilt and this one is called Carnival.

It features six different colour way options and each of the Mystery Quilt colourway choices I am bringing to you has been named after rides and attractions you might find at a Carnival, or as I think we would refer to them here in the UK a Fair or even a Feast if you’re from my neck of the woods!

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 your options?

Each of these six colourways I have carefully selected for you to choose from, so I hope you see something that takes your fancy?

Here is a closer look at the fabrics chosen for this Mystery Quilt.
