We’re pleased to share the news that QuiltMania magazine has partnered with our own Karen Styles of Somerset Patchwork & Quilting, to launch their exciting Mystery Quilt event for 2018! The quilt features Karen’s beautiful BATHWICK collection, inspired by an 18th Century Georgian quilt from her private collection. Many of these fabrics were originally printed in Great Britain in the mid 1700s, an era of romantic poets, landscape painters and distinctive architecture in the historic English city of Bath.
The first block (above) has been released for this truly international event, with kits available through participating shops from all around the world. If you’ve ever shied away from a mystery quilt because you can’t see the end result, Karen’s first block will give you all the confidence you need to get started! Enjoy…

Loved seeing the first mystery block by Karen Styles! Thanks for the peek!
Is it true that one of the Bathwick fabrics will only be available to people who purchase kits for the Quiltmania sew-along? The fabrics are beautiful!
Yes, Elizabeth, that is correct, it’s a blue print called “Henrietta” Style #8149-0169. It’s available only for the mystery quilt program.
