This year's quilt takes its inspiration from the aurora borealis that trip the light fantastic across the ink blue skies of the arctic circle. The blocks explore the folklore of the far north, fictional forays into the unknown and the fabled journey of a Venetian merchant (you weren't expecting that last one were you?).
Northern Lights is our fifth Block of the Month programme and will run for nine months, from January until September 2024. Block of the Month participants will receive an exclusive early access pattern book and beautifully packaged kits containing everything they need to create nine original Northern Lights sampler blocks and our dazzling Maelstrom setting, with Nicola's tried and trusted techniques, including simple machine-piecing, creating angles with placement templates and adding some subtle sparkle with trims and embroidery. We include any little extras you will need and, as always, a few lovely surprises, just because.
