New Friday Tutorial: The Butterfly Blossom Quilt

New Friday Tutorial: The Butterfly Blossom Quilt

Make a Butterfly Blossom Quilt with Jenny Doan of MSQC!

There’s something so fantastic about the lifecycle of a butterfly. He starts his journey as an inconsequential little caterpillar with a huge appetite. After weeks of glorious gluttony, he takes one massive, cozy nap. And then? He wakes up magnificently elegant and graceful! Why doesn’t that work for me? Just once in my life I’d love to binge all day on a quart of rocky road, take an epic nap on the sofa, and wake up as glorious as a butterfly!

For now, I’ll settle for the super-easy Butterfly Blossom Quilt. This quilt is incredibly beautiful, and it’s a breeze to make!

This sweet pattern is made with 2 charm packs and the MSQC Periwinkle Template. Isn’t it so cute?

2016 Christmas in July Retreat Recap

Merry Christmas (in July) from Santa and Mrs. Claus at Missouri Star Quilt Company! July is the perfect time of the year for quilters to start preparing for holiday gift giving. It makes us feel like we’re ahead of the game for a while, and then by the time Christmas rolls around we’ll be scrambling to finish up a few less quilts on Christmas Eve. 😉

Show and tell time at retreats is one of our favorites. It’s always fun to see what others have been working on, what fabrics they’ve chosen and how one pattern can have look so different when made in various fabric lines. Isn’t this blue, yellow and white Dresden Flower Quilt darling??

Michele Schneider made the same Dresden Flower pattern using Christmas fabrics and it turned out so cute as well!

Patrcia Jackson made her Dresden Flower Quilt in blue and white snowflake fabric for a fun quilt that will be great to cuddle up in all winter!

Jackie Smith from TX

Jackie Smith worked on this Jelly Roll Race Quilt that’s going to be a Christmas gift for her grandson. He’s going to love it! She used two Jelly Rolls and doubled the size of the quilt. Find out how you can do that same HERE.

New Friday Tutorial: The Super Easy Hourglass Quilt

Make an Hourglass Quilt the Super Easy way with Jenny Doan of MSQC!

For many Olympians, it’s all about speed, and the difference between last place and gold can be a matter of mere hundredths of a second! If speed-quilting were an Olympic event, surely the gold medal would go to Jenny and her Super Easy Hourglass quilt. This block can be constructed at lightning speed, and it’s so darn cute!

Row by Row License Plate Zipper Pouch!

Row by Row License Plate Zipper Pouch!

Sometimes inspiration just hits you when you least expect it! Jenny was signing a few of our Row by Row license plates at a Meet & Greet this week and thought, this needs to be a zipper pouch for quilting and sewing supplies! Maybe you bought two just in case or had every intention to visit all those shops to make a quilt and win a Row by Row prize, but just in case, we thought you might like this. 🙂

Jenny used one fat quarter from her stash, which was plenty of fabric, once you add in the license plate! Isn’t it so fun?
