The Double-Cross /A Someday Quilts Mystery -- GiveAway


It seems like I've been waiting, and waiting for the this latest in Clare's series to come out.

I met Clare O'Donohue on the set of The Quilt Show, way back when we both had our first book coming out and there was little talk of blogs, FaceBook or Twitter... things have definitely moved along since then.

This time around I get to help spread the word about The Double Cross, the further adventures of modern quilter, Nell Fitzgerald.

I can hardly wait... so while we're in the final countdown of days you can help cast our own quilt murder and maybe even win a copy of Clare's book.

To be in the drawing - set to be pulled on September 28th!
It's easy, just leave a comment telling the where and/or how do you see the next quilt murder taking place

(do you see the husband found dead of starvation while his wife's off stitching in the studio, or maybe it a gingher scissors found in the chest of the local quilt guild show judge... it may just be endless)

 I can hardly wait to see what you come up with!

Thanks for the link to my "Hero" quilt and your blog write-up!

Here is my mystery idea.....

The local quilt store owner is found under a pile of fabric in her locked storeroom after a 4-day state quilt run. It will take a "Bones-like" investigation of her remains to discover the cause of death.

She was rumored to have been shorting yardage for her customers, an inch here or two......

oh, no...the killer went bezerk when told she couldn't use quilt clips anymore to hold down her binding, so she tied up the poor victim (thought to be a woman who NEVER washed her yardage before cutting) like a mummy with several jelly rolls stitched carefully with her 1/4 inch foot and seams ironed open, then stuck all those nasty pins in her to hold the strips perfectly in place

omg - you two have made me lol this morning! thank you for kicking us off, I know 'we quilters' are a creative lot! I'm off to go wash my fabric - don't want to drive anyone bezerk... happy stitchin'

I believe the killer tested out all the thread types to determine which would be the strongest, not only to quilt with, but to see if she can tie up the victim. The killer, after testing all kinds of threads, ties up the victim and leaves the victim in a place where there are no quilt stores, no fabric and no internet so the victim dies of a broken heart

In a frenzy to cover up the murder scene, the killer wrapped the body in several UFO quilts that had been cast aside. Using a rolling sewing cart to aid in transporting the body, the killer then loaded it into the trunk of the old sedan and headed for the lakeside cottage. Meanwhile back at the murder scene several random neighborhood dogs had discovered the scent of blood that was wafting through the open door....

It's a quilters' reunion on a tropical cruise ship - exotic locations; touring fabulous hand-dyed fabric crafters in remote ports-of-call; long-term jealousy and resentment result in the mysterious disappearance of the quilt-world maven on a remote island - lost to headhunters, or merely pushed overboard?

thank you for all these trials and murderous quilterly happenings... I love them all!

My guess would be smothered by a quilt at the opening of a quilt show? Possiblites... many. :) Love to read this book and I'm surprised this is the first I've heard of this author. Thanks for the heads up.
