Shirley Hi!  My name is Shirley Sandoz.  Mystery Bay Quilt Design is the name of my company.  I design quilt patterns and publish books about quilting.

I live in Washington state on the west side of Puget Sound.  The climate is mild and we have beautiful views of ocean and forests.  I love to hike in the nearby woods or along the water.

I belong to a wonderful quilt guild called Cabin Fever Quilters, located in Chimacum, WA.  The members are a constant source of inspiration and a great resource for information about quilting and any other topic!

Please note that occasionally I will post a link to a product on Amazon that I recommend because I have found it to be useful.  I belong to the Amazon Associates program, so that means I may receive a small commission if you click on the link to Amazon and then buy the product.

    Hi, I am looking for speakers for our quilt guild for 2015. I have been rummaging around on your website and I love your quilts. Can you send me more info on your lectures and classes, including the cost. Thank you very much. I am from West Sound Quilters in Port Orchard, WA.

    I just completed the blocks for the Mariner’s Alphabet and discovered the colors printed on the paper for the T block is incorrect.. According to the paper instructions T-1 says White, T-2 says Red and T-3 says Red. Two or three should be Blue. Just wanted to let you know.
    Thanks Mary

        Another question, this is my first piece block quilt so the next question may be my inexperience. The paper for the B block has the white triangle pointing out to the right but the photo shows it pointing in towards the red so the white is on the wrong side.
