I am excited to announce that the Quilted Moose is one of six quilt shops in the United States that will be participating, exclusively, in the 2019 Quiltmania Mystery Quilt designed by Jen Kingwell. There are a total of 19 shops participating in this year’s international mystery quilt program. The Quilted Moose adores Jen and her quilt designs and fabrics!
‘Marshal’, has been designed in Jen’s unique, eclectic style, specifically for Quiltmania using her new Moda range called “Remix”. In Remix, Jen has used her favourite designs from her previous ranges and remixed the colours. Remix was released at Houston Quilt Market in October 2018 with great success. One mystery fabric in the range will be exclusively used in this project, only available through the participating shops. How cool is that?!
This 12 month BOM (block of the month) is sponsored by Quiltmania magazine. This means that you will need the six consecutive issues of Quiltmania beginning with the January/February 2019 issue. Quiltmania is a French publication that pays homage to the art of traditional quilting. It is published bimonthly and carries an eclectic menu of articles that bring the best quilt exhibitions and artists for your reading pleasure. It is a great magazine for inspiration. We have some regular customers that request we save them a copy of Quiltmania when it arrives from that guy with the brown truck!
Marshal will still be a 12 month program. But, to coincide with the bimonthly publication of Quiltmania magazine, you will be purchasing your fabric kit, templates and magazine every two months.

Paper templates will be included in each issue of Quiltmania for the duration of the mystery quilt. From past experience we highly recommend that you purchase the bimonthly set of acrylic templates. We have used Jen’s acrylic templates for several other store sponsored BOMs and have found the acrylic templates invaluable to the success of your cutting. The templates are much easier to use with your 18mm rotary cutter than cardboard or mylar template plastic.
This will be the schedule for picking up your bimonthly BOM packets:
- February 1: January/February 2019 includes fabric, templates and Quiltmania magazine

We are planning additional ‘surprises’ throughout the 12 months that you are sure to love! You won’t want to miss the fun! We hope you join us for a fun filled year of surprises and the piecing of a unique Jen Kingwell design. Teaser alert: Would you like to sit and piece your mystery quilt with a ‘mystery’ guest?!
