Annie's Mystery Quilt Block 1

I signed up for Annie's Quilted Mysteries Book Club for some enjoyable reading on my Kindle.  After finishing the first book, A Patchwork Mystery, I was surprised to see at the end, a block pattern for a mystery sampler quilt.  There will be a book-inspired block pattern in each of the twelve books in this series.  The last book will also include finishing instructions to create a mystery quilt designed by the series characters, Cotton & Grace.


The first block is a Friendship Star pattern with a Finished Block Size of 12"x12".


I played with a friendship star block pattern in Electric Quilt until I had some fabric from my stash that I thought would work well with it.  If you want to make one, here is my rotary cutting printout from EQ for a friendship star.

Pieces cut.

Block 1 assembled.

With the ebooks, I have found the block pattern is also available as a PDF to download from their website. I already have the next book on my Kindle ready to read.  Looking forward to finishing it and doing the next block.

Happy Stitching!
