New Friday Tutorial: The Four Patch Stars Quilt

There are so many basic quilt blocks that become the building blocks of other new designs.  For example, the half square triangle can be put into thousands of different arrangements to create completely new quilt patterns.  Then add other basic blocks to it and you’ve got so many more new options!  That’s how today’s pattern was born.  Put together some half square triangle blocks and four patch blocks and you get the Four Patch Stars Quilt!  It’s beautiful and super simple to make!

UNDER THE STARS pinnable

Here is another fantastic quilt project for you from Jenny! It is called Under the Stars. This one is so great and easy! It looks like a very complicated pattern, but like all of Jenny’s great patterns, it is simple and precut friendly! You know how much we all love precuts here at MSQC! :) This quilt would look so great in rainbow colors, or some super modern fabrics. We would love to see what you come up with, so don’t forget to post your beautiful masterpieces on Quiltsby.me (HERE‘s a post on how to sign up for Quiltsby.me) or share on social media using #underthestarsquilt!

Row by Row Experience 2015: Row by Row H20!

Row by Row Experience 2015: Row by Row H20!

1,250 Quilt Shops in the United States and Canada came together last year to give you the free shop hop event called the Row by Row Experience and this year is going to be even better!  This is Missouri Star’s first time participating and we are so excited!  Each shop has a unique row pattern following a theme and you can go into their shop and get a free pattern to make the row.  This year’s theme is “Row by Row H20,” so all the patterns are water themed!  This is our row (pictured blow).  It’s called Sail Away and we think it’s pretty awesome ;)  Come into our shop for the free pattern now!

We also have exclusive fabric plates available in the shop during this event, which can be purchased in the shop, so that you have an additional keepsake from each shop you visit!  Here’s what ours looks like (below — the black binding was added for display).  It measures 8″ x 4.5″.  While the pattern for our row must be picked up in our shop here in Hamilton, Missouri, our fabric license plates are also available in our online shop HERE.

As a participating shop, we will be awarding a bundle of 25 fat quarters to the first customer who brings in a completed (quilted, bound, labeled) row quilt using rows/patterns from at least 8 different shops, with a special bonus prize if the finished quilt includes our MSQC row! The chance to win ends October 31, 2015.
