July 2016 Planning Printables!

July 2016 Planning Printables!

Some call it, “money spent on fabric,” but we call it “resources invested in material inventory.” Doesn’t it sound so much better? 😉

The more resources we have in material inventory, the better system we need for keeping track of it all. That’s why we’ve created some great Planning Printables for you! Download these three FREE printables to help keep you organized this July!

This Pheobe’s Flower Box Quilt Block Calendar inspired from the quilt pattern in BLOCK Magazine Volume 2 Issue 4 will look adorable on the wall next to your sewing machine!

Have some UFO’s you plan to finish this month? Stay on track with this Weekly To Do List! It’s great for keeping track of non-quilty tasks as well!

As quilters, sometimes fabric speaks to us and we’ve just gotta have it! The only problem is, by the time we get around to using it, we often forget what pattern we had in mind for it. Download this handy dandy list to help you keep track of all that fabric and what you want to make with it!

We hope you enjoy these free Planning Printables for the month of July. Be sure to share any projects you make with us on social media using #msqcshowandtell and check back next month for some more printable fun! 🙂

Introducing ModBLOCK (Vol. 2)

Introducing ModBLOCK (Vol. 2)

If you’re a Missouri Star fan, then you’ve probably heard of our wonderful bi-monthly magazine, called BLOCK. It features 10 patterns with beautiful photos, tons of inspiration and no ads! This isn’t your typical magazine that you recycle once the next issue comes out. It’s more of an idea/pattern book for the price of a magazine! That sounds like a winning combination, right? Get the newest issue, Winter Volume 3 Issue 1, HERE.

For the second time, we have released a special edition of BLOCK Magazine called ModBLOCK. It’s a little bit different, but mostly the same. Here’s the scoop on our brand new Volume 2!

Check out ModBLOCK, the best magazine for Modern Quilters, for just $5.99!

The theme for this issue is Form and Function. There is a wonderful article written by our very own Nichole Spravzoff, which discusses the important place quilting has had in our hearts throughout history. She says, “Quilts are personal, functional, and most of all beautiful.” We completely agree!

Just like BLOCK, ModBLOCK offers 10 quilt patterns with detailed instructions, supply lists, and step by step photos to help with your piecing.

In this issue of ModBLOCK, we have wonderful Contributors who create the quilts and articles in the magazine. These are people who are known and respected in the quilting industry, who we have just loved working with as we collaborated to create this special issue.
