New Friday Tutorial: The Quartered Stripes Quilt

New Friday Tutorial: The Quartered Stripes Quilt

I'll never look at striped fabric the same again! Love this Quartered Stripes Quilt Tutorial on YouTube!

Fabric is amazing. With certain quilt patterns, it’s like it has magical powers. Take the stripe, for example. Stripes have the power to make people look taller or wider… and when you put them together as demonstrated in this week’s new quilting tutorial, you get a beautiful, almost 3-dimensional effect! It’s the Quartered Stripes Quilt and you’ll never look at stripes the same way again!

BYU TV’s Random Acts: Quilting Life Back Together

BYU TV’s Random Acts: Quilting Life Back Together

If you know the story of how our little company came to be, then you might understand why it’s so important for us to grab on to opportunities to give back. Random Acts is a hidden camera show that focuses on acts of kindness. This episode follows a single mom who lost her home and all her possessions – including quilting supplies used to supplement her income – in a tragic house fire. Watch as Machelle is treated to a fun-filled shopping spree with Missouri Star. We were honored to be a part of this Random Acts episode on BYU TV and so glad to meet Machelle! Keep the tissues handy for this one!

The Story of Us on Turning Point

The Story of Us on Turning Point

It’s hard to believe that our story started back in 2008 (nearly 8 years ago). We’ve grown as people, as quilters, as a community and as a company in so many ways since then. It’s been an amazing journey and we are so lucky to have you all by our side through it all.

A few months ago we were lucky enough to have the BYU TV film crew come to the small town of Hamilton, MO to film a Turning Point feature on Missouri Star Quilt Co. and the full story of how we came to be. We hope you enjoy watching the feature below and feel a bit more like family after doing so.

New Friday Tutorial: The Spring Rain Quilt

New Friday Tutorial: The Spring Rain Quilt

Make a Spring Rain Quilt with this Step-by-Step Video Tutorial with Jenny Doan!

I love a little shower of rain. It’s just so peaceful to sit at my sewing machine and listen to the gentle pitter-pat of raindrops on the window. It’s too wet to work in the yard, too wet to run to the grocery story, and way too wet to cut the grass. I’ve racked my brain and come to the conclusion that on a rainy day, the best use of my time is quilting! (Curiously, I’ve come to the same conclusion about sunny days, snowy days, and even plagues-of-locust days.)

Spring-Rain
