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.
