Card Trick Quilt Tutorial

Card Trick Quilt Tutorial

Watch and learn with Jenny as she creates the Card Trick

It’s just amazing. A magician can perform a trick RIGHT in front of my eyes, and I still can’t figure out how it is done! I stare without blinking, watch every move, and somehow never catch a glimpse of the card up his sleeve or the coin hidden in his left palm. My brain knows it’s an illusion, but all I can see is pure magic.

 

Learn along with Jenny as she shows you a simple way to make the Card Trick Quilt.

This week Jenny is stitching up her version of the Card Trick quilt. This classic block has the illusion of being difficult, but we know better! Jenny has a few tricks of her own to make this project as easy as “abracadabra!” Click HERE to watch the tutorial!

Who’s ready for some half-rectangle triangles?

 

Jenny makes it so easy to learn new techniques, check out this one!

No, I haven’t been sampling the punch; the half-rectangle triangle is a real thing! It’s the 1st cousin to the half-square triangle, and it’s just as easy to make!

This week Jenny is combining a stack of half-square triangles with a bit of crumb quilting to create a cool, modern Trail Blaze Quilt.  (What’s that? Crumb quilting? Don’t worry, it’s just a mish-mash of tiny scraps. Fun to make and easy to use!) Click HERE to learn all about these fun techniques in this week’s new tutorial!

This year in BLOCK Magazine, we have followed the courtship of Ingrid and Gustav. Flip to the back of any 2017 issue to enjoy another piece of their love story – and the quilt block that goes along with it.

Breast Cancer Awareness Month – Quick and Easy Ribbon Block

Breast Cancer Awareness Month – Quick and Easy Ribbon Block

October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month. Did you know that more than 250,000 women will be diagnosed this year? Many of us have been touched by this terrible disease in one way or another, and when those hard times come, we search for ways to help.

Quilts are a beautiful way to show support and give comfort. Jenny has a tutorial from a few years back for a Ribbons of Hope Quilt but this year as Jenny was brainstorming ways to show her love and support for two of the Missouri Star Family’s very own Breast Cancer Survivors, she was able to come up with an even easier way to make a Ribbon Quilt Block.

Breast Cancer Awareness - Ribbon Quilt Block from Missouri Star Quilt Co.

Isn’t this Ribbon Block so stunning and powerful? It’s as simple as snowballing a few corners. Jenny got the idea from the X’s and O’s Quilt Tutorial and we want to share how it was done with you. Watch the video below for a mini tutorial on how to make this Ribbon Block and to hear Betty and Sherry’s stories of how they won their battles against Breast Cancer.

Check out the block diagram below. Use one block to make a pillow like Jenny or multiple blocks to make a table runner or quilt!

While October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month, we know that there are many out there affected by other types of cancer. You can make this Ribbon Quilt Block in another color to show your support to those battling other forms of cancer as well. Stitch by stitch, we can make a difference.

Many years ago, Jenny took her very first quilt class. Even though she was already an accomplished seamstress, quilting seemed a bit daunting. During that class, she learned how to make a log cabin. And when she realized how simple and versatile that little block can be, a fire was lit! Before the class finished, Jenny had completed 12 quilts – and she’s never stopped quilting!

Today’s new quilt is a fun variation of a log cabin quilt!
