This BOM includes a fabric kit each month of Hoffman California batiks in the colors shown in the picture.  This is the fabric we used when creating this quilt, so your finished quilt will look like the photo.  This BOM has an upfront $4.99 sign up fee which is paid now.  (The signup fee is so that we can have an accurate count of how much fabric we need to order for fabric kits.  The signup fee will be credited towards your first month's payment.  So January's charge will be $25.00 and every month after that will be $29.99.)  On January 1st, and on the first of every month thereafter during 2018, you will be charged for that month's fabric kit, pattern and chapter of the story, which will be $29.99.  We will mail everything together ⎯ the fabric kit and paper copy of the pattern and mystery chapter for that month.

Our murder mystery is set on the Olympic Peninsula in Washington state and the quilt reflects the colors and activities of that area of the country ⎯ blues and greens with splashes of color added in for contrast! This is not your traditional mystery quilt where you have no idea what the quilt will look like and you end up picking colors and fabrics blindly. I have more than one ugly mystery quilt that was a waste of time and money because I didn't know what the quilt was going to look like in the end and couldn't coordinate fabrics, colors, prints, etc.

This is a traditional BOM and the "mystery" comes in the form of a murder mystery. Each month, you'll receive a chapter of the book "The Devil You Know" and a pattern for that month's quilt block. This picture of the EQ7 design is what the quilt will look like. We chose cool colors with a couple of bright accents. Knowing what the quilt looks like will help you pick colors and fabrics and you'll end up with a quilt you'll love!!

Finished quilt measures 62" by 62" square.

Join the fun! This 12-month BOM combines a fun murder mystery story and a quilt pattern. Each month, you'll receive a chapter of the book and a pattern for a quilt block. By purchasing the entire year, you'll automatically be entered in our prize drawing. By the end of the year, you'll know who-did-it and you'll have a finished quilt! In 2018, our prizes will be:
