Annie's Mystery Quilt Block 4

It has been a while since I finished the fourth book in the Annie's Quilted Mysteries Book Club, titled Broderie Curse.  I am just now getting a chance to blog about it.

Each book in the series includes a block for a mystery sampler quilt.  The first three blocks include:
  1. Friendship Star block.  
  2. Raven  
  3. Roman Tiles
The last book in the series will also include finishing instructions to create a mystery quilt designed by the series' characters, Cotton & Grace.

The fourth block is called Castle Block with a Finished Block Size of 12"x12".


This block uses four colors:  two lights, one medium and one dark.  I auditioned similar fabrics from the first three blocks in Electric Quilt again.  I decided to go with the yellow for my light color, along with a new large pink floral print as my second light fabric.  I used the green for my medium and blue again for my dark color.

If you want to make your own Castle block, here is my rotary cutting printout from EQ for this block.

Here are my first four blocks for this mystery quilt.  It feels very much like a Spring quilt.  :-)

I finished the book and made this block before summer started, so several more books have come in since then, and I need to get caught up!


Happy Stitching!
