faq's - 'Time to bloom' 2024 mystery quilt course

Updated: May 9

Every year, we run an online mystery quilt-as-you-go course, and 2024 will be our sixth course! Each year, we have a theme, and the theme for 2024 is 'Time to Bloom'.

This year, we have two blocks for the price of one! You will receive a patchwork block and a bonus applique block so you can choose how you make this quilt.

Prepare to be inspired with each patchwork block; you will learn a new quilting technique, expand on your skills and step outside of your comfort zone, achieving things you never imagined. At the end of the course, you will be an experienced quilt-as-you-go quilter who knows many quilting techniques, such as accurate piecing, foundation piecing and raw edge applique, plus many more!


Theme: Patchwork blocks set amongst floral applique blocks.

Video tutorials and course notes (PDF patterns) are released on the first Wednesday of the month.

Start date: May 1, 2024. (You can start anytime)

Cost: $11 per month for 12 months. (Total: 132 Australian dollars).

Option to pay upfront or pay by the month.

(The option to pay monthly only lasts until June 1, 2024).

Signup is now open. You can start anytime!

(Course does not include fabric).


When you signup mid-month, you'll have instant access to the course members only section on the Pattern Poole website, where you can download the course notes and watch the YouTube tutorials ad free! All you need is your email address and password to login anytime. See how here. Then, on the 1st of each month, we'll send you an email to let you know that the next part has launched.

Tell me more about the quilt

There are 12 applique blocks and 13 patchwork blocks. This makes a total of 25 blocks with a layout of 5 blocks across and 5 blocks down, alternating between the applique and patchwork blocks. This will make a large quilt that's 80" (203 cm) square.

Referring to the images below:

Grey = Patchwork blocks

White= Applique blocks

You can also choose to make 1 block per month to make a small quilt. You can choose all patchwork, all applique or a combination of both. 12 blocks will make a quilt size of 48” x 64” (122 cm x 162 cm).

What fabrics are required to make the quilt?

We thought it would be a fun idea to choose your favourite colour, then choose 5 fabrics ranging from a pastel tint to a deep shade. We're using a selection of blues in Moda Grunge.


Have fun choosing fabrics from your stash. Each block starts at 18” square and is trimmed to 16 ¾” after quilting. This makes it perfect for fat quarters to be used as backing squares and background squares for the applique blocks.
