Want to give the gift of quilting?


The Murder Mystery Quilt is a monthly subscription club that reads along together and stitches up a quilt to find clues and solve the murder.   This is a mystery quilt in the traditional sense–you sew a block each month and the overall design of the quilt isn’t revealed until all the blocks are sewn–but it’s also a MYSTERY quilt: each month, along with the block pattern and design, you receive a chapter of a mystery story.  Each chapter reveals clues as the plot unfolds, and it’s your job to seek out whodunit!

Murder Mystery Quilt 2024:

Murder In Greece

Mykonos port with boats and windmills, Cyclades islands, Greece

Join our hero, Kitty Campbell, as she solves a murder in the Greek islands!!

Kitty Campbell is an archaeologist, but for some reason, she's also a detective--or that's what people seem to think.  Whether she likes it or not, her colleagues trust her to seek out the truth when a crime is committed, and her new position on an excavation in Greece proves no different.

When a researcher is discovered hanged in an olive grove, Kitty immediately knows all is not as it seems.  As a paleoethnobotanist, an archaeologist who studies plants in prehistory, her in-depth knowledge of plant and human interactions gives her clues that help track down a killer--and for the first time, she begins to wonder if maybe she enjoys solving crime as much as she enjoys exploring the past!  After all, aren't people the same, no matter where or when they are?

Come along with Kitty to explore all of Greece--ancient and modern--as she unknots a crime that no one saw coming!  Track the killer through olive groves & olive oil factories; through the mists of the oracle in the mountains and to the edges of the sea in Crete; along rocky volcanic calderas and along the winding streets of a resort town on a speeding moped, all alongside Kitty as she unravels a mystery and, for the first time, kinda loves it.

Your quilt will grow as the clues pile up, and along the way, you'll learn skills, make friends, and discover a community you can count on.

A Design Of Original Quilt Blocks Hides Small Quiet Secrets

Kitty Campbell is gifted with a love of plants and history, and cursed with a deep understanding of the dark secrets lurking in the hearts of humans.  For the past few years, as she struggled to regain a reputation soiled by her own disregard for rules, Kitty solved murders reluctantly--but in the island air of Greece, she discovers that perhaps crime is as alluring a mistress as archaeology.

This has been an AMAZING experience. 2020 has been a very unusual and challenging year in so many ways--I have learned ‘sew’ many tips and tricks in this last 10 months...Everyone involved with the quilt, from the fellow quilters to the admin have been so helpful and encouraging. I feel privileged to have been part of this experience. I am looking forward to the 2021 version!

I’m having such a good time with this project! Some months have shoved me completely out of my comfort zone and that’s ok! Thanks for making this not-so-nice year a bit better with having something to look forward to every month. Can’t wait til next year!

~Andrea J

All signed up for 2021. This will be my 5th year.  I love the whole experience, from the patterns, the mystery, the story, the facebook group, the admins, everything, nothing is a problem and issues get solved ASAP.  I just can't imagine not doing the MMQ every year.  Please don’t stop.
Cheers to 2021!
