What is a murder mystery quilt?

A murder mystery quilt is a traditional mystery quilt where you don’t see the overall design until the end. I’m sure you’ve encountered mystery quilts before. But a murder mystery quilt is the best of two worlds — it combines the love of quilting with the love of reading a really good murder mystery story!

Each month, you’ll receive block instructions for that month’s quilt block along with a chapter of the original, exclusive murder mystery. At the end of the project, you’ll have made new friends, read an original murder mystery, made a gorgeous quilt, and know whodunit!

How much does it cost and what do i get for my money??

$30.00 for a year’s membership — less than $2.50 per month.  Join anytime.  Your membership runs through the end of 2021 and you get immediate access to all previous months and access to each following month on the first of the month.

You get the chance to read a really good original murder mystery that is offered only through this website.  Quilt blocks that were specially designed to support the murder mystery.  A fabric list and sewing instructions to complete each block of the quilt.  Pictorial tutorials of each block.  And, you can always email me (Cindy) for help if needed.  I will always write back to you.


This was the 2019 Murder and Mayhem Murder Mystery Quilt BOM


Synopsis of The Devil You Know

Set on the Olympic Peninsula, Washington

When a dead body is discovered on his property, Henry Darrow finds himself at the center of the local authorities’ investigation.  His yard is now a crime scene and his parents have indefinitely extended their week-long visit to offer their moral support.  Just when he thinks his life can’t get any worse, the case takes a bizarre turn.  Now his future is in the hands of a detective on the verge of retiring who wouldn’t mind seeing him hang and his new love interest’s older brother.  As the detectives sift through seemingly unrelated clues, Henry begins to suspect that he just might be inadvertently endangering the lives of everyone he loves.
