George and the Donkey – New Mystery Button Club Block of the Month (Complete Set) – Pre order for September


Lynette Anderson has designed a Mystery Button Club for the past ten years and ‘George & the Donkey’ is the newest one starting in September 2022.  It’s a seven-part monthly mystery block of the month with a hand painted button on Block 1 only.

Lynette has designed a delightful thatched cottage tucked behind a stone wall, an apple tree filled with juicy red ripe embroidered apples, a sweet black Labrador named George and a little grey donkey with a finished size of approx 36” x 36”.  Remember, it’s a mystery so all we can see are the little snippets Lynette has provided.

Techniques that include, applique, embroidery, simple piecing, Suffolk puffs (yoyo’s), wool applique and EPP (English Paper Piecing).
This is a very scrappy quilt, Lynette has chosen to make her quilt using fabrics from a huge variety of her fabrics from collections dating back several years.  We have two starter fabric packs available to get you going with this. One is the background fabrics and the second is the scrappy piecing and applique fabrics. We have made two separate packs to enable you to use your own stash to suit.

If you purchase this item via our website, you’re paying for the complete set  to be sent our one per month for seven months starting in September.  (If you’d prefer to pay monthly, please contact us. monthly costs are £11.50 per block plus £2 postage per block within the UK.

A DMC thread pack will be available separately once we have more information from Lynette
