Quilting is Murder!
No, that’s not a statement of fact, or even what I’m feeling right now. It’s a web-site/newsletter/blog where one can follow a quilting mystery story, do a weekly quilt shop-hop, get a weekly block pattern, win some prizes, learn about some fascinating people (real ones), and just have fun.

This past week, the questions was asked: what are the Top Ten ways that quilters pass on. Here’s the list they published:
- Keeling over a warm machine (Life can't get any better than this....)
- Fondling Fabric (Over Stimulation)
- Drooling Over Patterns (Dehydration)
- Getting electrocuted by a faulty machine (suspicious handiwork by an unknown!!)
- Pins & needles dipped in Poison dart frog's toxic secretions by "unknown".
- Buried alive by the fabric stash she had on shelves that collapsed in her basement (Suffocation)
- LQS had 50% off all in stock fabric to make room for new fabrics being introduced at Quilt Market. (Trampled)
- Abducted by UFOs (unfinished objects), never to be seen again. :-)
- "Bobbin" in and out of consciousness, in a tangle of twisted threads. (Strangled)
- box of stash staged to drop on her as she sews (a head injury)
- Dying while dyeing. (poisoning, asphyxiation or drowning)
- Bled to death from a bad cut on the wrist from a rotary cutter.
- Death from fumes from ironing with tainted spray starch.
- Never took a break from determination to finish that quilt that's been sitting on the shelf for years. (Starvation).
I guess if we have to go, wouldn’t it be nice to go doing something we love!
Happy mysteries! Blessings, Peg
