Denyse Schmidt Traveling Quilts Show!

Denyse Schmidt Quilts teamed up with FreeSpirit Fabrics, STC Craft Books and 7 incredibly talented quilters/bloggers to create a 60”x60” quilt using Denyse’s Modern Solids Fat Quarter Box and inspiration from traditional quilt patterns.

For this week’s Throwback Thursday #msqctbt Tutorial, we’re bringing back the Lattice Quilt Tutorial!  This pattern is so beautiful and comes together so quickly, that it became a quick favorite!  Have you tried this one?

Introducing: Quilts By Me!

Introducing: Quilts By Me!

If you’re anything like us here at MSQC, every time you make a quilt or do a sewing project, you want to share it with the world (and you should!!!).  You might post it on Facebook, Instagram, Twitter, Flickr, etc, but it doesn’t really have a home of its own… until now!  We are so excited to introduce you to Quiltsby.me!

Quilts By Me is a Show & Tell for your quilts and sewing projects! As a community of quilters, we all have a desire to create. We start with a few fabrics that we have carefully selected and we transform them into something that has a life and a story of its own! It’s an incredible transformation and once we’ve experienced it, we want to share it with our fellow quilters, who are creating and experiencing similar transformations.  I can’t even say how many times I’ve been moved or inspired by another quilter’s projects or stories.  With Quilts By Me, you’ll have a home for your creations as well as a place to become inspired by others!  We wanted to create a home for this amazing community and we hope you feel welcome here!

It’s a user friendly website and a great way to have a collection of all your creations in one spot. You can browse, ❤ your favorite projects created by other users, follow your friends or people whose work you enjoy, search by precut/style/project type… basically it’s amazing!  Once you play around a little bit with it, we know you’ll just love it!

Here’s what you need to know to get started.

First, if you already have an account with missouriquiltco.com, you do not have to SIGN UP.  You can simply choose the LOG IN option.

Now you’re ready to browse or create a project!  You can share the quilt’s story, include which precuts you used, add a few tags (keywords like the color, pattern, etc), tell which fabric collection and tutorial you used, add photos, etc.

As you participate, you will have the opportunity to earn badges that will be displayed on your profile page!  These are so fun!
