Watch the Replay of Jenny’s Live Q&A on 7/11/2017!

Every Tuesday afternoon at about 3:30pm, on our Quilting Deals – Missouri Star Quilt Co. Facebook page, we do a Facebook Live video! This week we had the opportunity to visit Jenny in her sewing studio and she was so generous to sit with us and answer some questions! We had a great time with her (as always) and learned some new things!

Live Q and A with Quilter Jenny Doan

In the video, we talked about this gorgeous quilt that hangs behind Jenny’s desk in her studio. Here’s a photo so you can really see what all the fuss is about. Have you ever inherited any antique quilts from friends or family? These quilts can be so inspiring and hold so much history and meaning in every stitch. Did you know that Jenny collects antique sewing machines? Check out the adorable mini sewing machines on the shelf above the quilt!

New Friday Tutorial – Snail Trail

New Friday Tutorial – Snail Trail

In this week’s tutorial, Jenny is working on a tricky old block. Of course, with precuts and a few tips and tricks, you’ll have no trouble whipping up this pretty quilt!

It’s called Snail Trail, but those fantastic swirls remind me of ocean waves, whirligigs, or swirling tornadoes. This quilt is so full of movement and energy, no one would ever guess how easy it is to put together!

And! To make things even more easy-peasy, our team has put together an awesome, printable, PDF file that breaks down exactly how to cut up your 10″ squares! How great is that!? Click the Diagram above or below for the full print out!

Pony Express Quilt

Pony Express Quilt

Learn to make this creative block using HST and snowballed rectangles!

Pony Express riders began their 2000-mile journey in St Joseph, Missouri. (Just 50 miles from Missouri Star!) They raced across the frontier, delivering mail to Sacramento, California at what was then an incredible speed – 10 days! (Thank goodness we live in the age of instant communication! I love technology!)

 

The Pony Express is an intricate block, but it’s really just half-square triangles and flying geese, so you’ll have it stitched up faster than the Pony Express itself! Click HERE to watch the tutorial.

Happy National Sewing Machine Day!

Happy National Sewing Machine Day!

Happy National Sewing Machine Day! A world without sewing machines… I don’t even want to think of it.

Picking out a sewing machine is like buying a new car. There are endless options with varying features and details, all of them will get you from A to B, but the best part is the ride. If you’re going  to log a solid 12 hours on the sewing machine, you better enjoy the ride because everyone knows that the best sewing machine is the one being used!

Which brings us to today’s subject, the Baby Lock Jazz Sewing Machine! Baby Lock Sewing has so graciously offered a machine for us to give away, so we just had to choose the Jazz! It is fast, smooth, and easy to operate.

Here are some of the reasons we love it:

  • 12 inch workspace to the right of the needle… plenty of room for maneuvering large projects

  • 28 unique stitches… well-equipped to take your creativity to new heights
  • 9 feet attachments
  • Needle Threader
