The Murder Mystery Quilt

Whipstitch Murder Mystery Quilt : Fresh Lemons Quilts

Last week one of my quilty friends Deborah Moebes of Whipstitch Modern Sewing emailed me and asked if I was interested in checking out her new Murder Mystery Quilt project and sharing it with all of you. If any of you have met Deborah in person, you know she is pretty high energy, hilarious, and just has a very infectious personality. So I kinda figured that whatever she had up her sleeve, it was going to be awesome.

The Murder Mystery Quilt is a year long (month by month) quilt along. Each month you receive not only a quilt block with complete directions, but a mystery chapter to read. The blocks might have a new-to-you technique, ranging from half square triangles to curves to applique. There are full directions and tips so you can successfully meet each challenge.

Each month there are clues to help you solve the whodunnit. The final quilt is also a mystery. You will not know the layout of the blocks and how they all fit together until the end. As time goes on, you have a chance to solve the mystery and be entered in a chance to win a prize basket.

I just think this is the most creative and fun idea! I have always loved reading mysteries and solving problems. You can find out more about this quilt along on the Whipstitch Blog. If you are ready to jump into the fun and put your detective hat on, you can subscribe in Deborah’s shop. Registration ends on February 29th ~ so don’t think too long!

The Splendid Sampler Sew Along

The Splendid Sampler Sew Along

Last summer I was lucky enough to be invited by Pat Sloan to take part in what promised to be an amazing project. The Splendid Sampler is a year long quilt along. Beginning February 14th, each week two 6″ block tutorials will be posted on the Splendid Sampler website. There are a total of 100 blocks designed by your favorite designers.

You can join the community fun over on the Facebook page – but if you aren’t on Facebook, that’s ok. You can sign up online for notifications each time there is a new post.

Be sure to check out the FAQ on the Splendid Sampler website for answers to all your questions. I’ve seen a lot of the blocks – you all are in for a real treat! I can’t wait to share my design with you later this summer. 🙂

Welcome to Week 2 of the Snowflake Quilt Along! I hope everyone enjoyed creating their blocks. I saw a few popping up here and there on blogs and Instagram. Looking good! If you are just joining in, you can find links to all the posts as they go live on my Snowflake Quilt Along page.

In this week’s post over at BERNINA’s We All Sew blog, I’m talking all about quilt top assembly. My top tip would be to check and double check the direction of your blocks once you lay them all out. I can’t wait to see everyone’s quilts! Happy sewing. 🙂
