An introductory video is here: 

You may have gathered by now that there is a Mystery to be Solved! To be part of the detective team you will need to register, with payment, during the month of May 2017, then in early June 2017 "The Box" will be mailed out to you, wherever you are in the world! The Mystery will be solved during the month of July 2017 via 8 emailed clues. There will be some occasions where you will need to report in with some of your results in order to collect the next clue, so keep an eye on things...!

**Please note - registration is open during May 2017 only

There will be Facebook Group page for registrants so that you can chat and share aspects of the mystery as you go. We ask that you don't post photos etc anywhere else on the internet, including personal blogs, instagram, facebook etc until the mystery is solved. We thank you for your co-operation in this and know that you will understand the need to keep the mystery findings under wraps until the mystery is solved.

Participation in the "What's in the Box Mystery Quilt 2017" requires a once only registration payment.

"The Box" that is mailed out will have information on fabric requirements and other useful, and necessary, items that will help solve this mystery.

Registration has been set up to include the mailing out of The Box, because of this there will be different requirements for postage, so to simplify things we have set up 3 different regions - New Zealand, Australia and World Wide. 

As well as that we have added a couple of options to include some, or all, of the fabrics suggested for the quilt top.

Fabrics suggested are Indah batiks with a light background and Bali Watercolour Batiks with a dark blue by Hoffman and the thread we are using is by Aurifil. There is, of course, no obligation for you to use these fabrics, however we have tested them and know they work! (Fabrics re not included in the registration - they are an additional purchase).

If you are interested in purchasing the fabrics, please email susanclaire@gourmetquilter.com or they can be purchased from webfabrics.net (USA)


This year we will be making a pieced quilt finishing at approximately 63" square.
