Harmony Block of the Month with Edyta Sitar

Harmony Block of the Month

When Edyta Sitar was a little girl, she cut pieces from her mother’s good drapes to make a decorative pillow. Thanks to a wise and patient mother, Edyta survived the incident and grew up to become a world-famous designer.

Harmony Block of the Month

This week Edyta is in the studio with Jenny to demonstrate how to put together her block of the month quilt, Harmony. This applique project was designed exclusively for Missouri Star, and it is available by subscription only. Click HERE to subscribe, and we will send everything needed to make the first block right away. After that, you will receive the supplies for one additional block each month until your quilt top is complete! Click HERE to watch the tutorial!

We Quilt This City!

We Quilt This City!

Every summer we host thousands of visitors from near and far in our happy little town of Hamilton. Many of these visitors come to us as their end destination or as part of a detour on their road trip. No matter how our visitors get to us, we do all we can to make sure that they have the best experience in Hamilton.

If you needed another excuse to come visit Hamilton this Summer, starting June 21st we are participating in the Row by Row Experience again this year!

The Row by Row Experience is a wonderful program started in 2011 by Janet Lutz to help quilt shops get more visitors in what might otherwise be slow summer months. All the quilt shops participating in Row by Row have their very own free pattern to help you make a quilt block, and if you are the first to complete a quilt using at least 8 different rows from 8 different 2018 participating shops, you win a stash of 25 fat quarters and you win a bonus prize if you use our block and bring it in to our store!

The theme for Row by Row this year is “Sew Musical” and we have our very own pattern called “We Quilt This City.” The pattern features a beautiful appliqué town and music notes, hopefully not bringing just your quilts, but also your community in harmony.

"We Quilt This City"

To get your free Missouri Star Row by Row pattern all you need to do is come to Penney’s Quilt Shop and ask for our Row by Row pattern! Each customer is limited to one pattern. Sorry to all of our online customers, this pattern is only available in person!

The Row by Row experience will run from June 21st to September 4th, 2018, and you will have until October 31st, 2018 to submit your quilt for a prize.

Daisy Chain Quilt

Daisy Chain Quilt

Daisy Chain Quilt

I always thought the daisy was such a sweet and simple flower, but it turns out I was wrong! The daisy isn’t a flower at all; it’s two flowers! The first flower is made up of the long, white petals we love to pluck while reciting, “He loves me. He loves me not.” The second flower is the cheery yellow center. I guess you could say every bloom is its own bouquet!

Daisy Chain Quilt

In this week’s new tutorial, Jenny combines simple white charms with a pretty roll of 2.5 inch strips, and the results are as sweet as a field of daisies!

Strings Attached Quilt

Strings Attached Quilt

Strings Attached Quilt

Chevrons have been a hot trend for a long time. (A really, really long time.) Jenny stitched up THIS version in 2015, and THIS one in 2012, but it goes back much further than that! Chevron motifs have been found on 4,000-year-old pottery and rock carvings – and, honestly, they’ve been cool ever since!

Strings Attached Quilt

The Strings Attached quilt is made quick and easy with the 10” Rhombus Template, but it’s the vertical sashing that really sets this pattern apart! Click HERE to watch the tutorial!

Treasure Box Quilt

Australia is famous for its many national treasures: The Great Barrier Reef. The Sydney Opera House.  Koalas and kangaroos. And, of course, the ridiculously attractive Hugh Jackman. You may not know, however, that Australia is also home to some of the best quilters in the world!

On a recent trip to Australia, Jenny picked up this pretty new quilt pattern from a local quilter. (What a souvenir!) Click HERE to learn how to turn your half square triangles into a “treasure” from the Land Down Under!
