Throwback Thursday: Summer in the Park

Throwback Thursday: Summer in the Park

Have you ever heard of Throwback Thursday?  Every Thursday all over the internet, people post old photos of themselves with their families or friends, etc, and use the hashtag #tbt to share a blast from the past!  Well, today we’re introducing #msqctbt!

Here’s how it works.  Every Thursday we’ll be featuring ONE of our previous tutorials from our YouTube channel.  We’ll share a little bit about it and then we’ll ask you to share your photos of projects you’ve created using that quilt tutorial.

To share your photos, I want to introduce you to Missouri Star Quilt Co’s Quiltsby.me.  Quilts By Me is a Show & Tell for your quilts and sewing projects and we’re so excited about it!  It’s user friendly and a great way to share your projects with the web.  You can ❤ your favorite projects, follow your friends, search by precut/style/project type… basically it’s amazing!  Once you play around a little bit with it, we know you’ll just love it!  This is a home for your projects where you can tell their stories and share with the quilting community!

First, you need to know how to log in.  We’ve made it super easy for you!  When you get to Quiltsby.me, this (image above) is what the front page will look like.  Rather than creating a new account, if you already have an account at missouriquiltco.com (what you use to place an order), you can skip the whole ‘create an account’ process and just login with your missouriquiltco.com info!

Once you’re logged in, you can Create a Project, fill out all the info and in the Tags section, make sure to include #msqctbt as one of the tags!

We will select winners from all submissions with the #msqctbt tag and feature them next Thursday when we introduce the next Throwback Thursday Tutorial for the week!  We also would love for you to share your photos on Instagram and Twitter with the same #msqctbt hashtag that feature any previous MSQC Tutorials!  We may even repost/retweet our favorites, but the “winners” will be selected from the #msqctbt tag on Quiltsby.me.

So, let’s get started!  For our inaugural Throwback Thursday, we’re going back to the Summer in the Park Tutorial!  This is such a simple quilt to make with your 2.5″ strips and people just love it! Use some great prints with your favorite coordinating solids and it’ll be so gorgeous!

We even have a ‘Revamped’ version to help your creative juices flow!


If you’ve already tried this one, upload your photos to Quiltsby.me and you’ll be awarded a Throwback Thursday badge (If you haven’t done this one yet, you’ve got all week to get it uploaded)!

The winners we feature on the blog will also be awarded the Throwback Thursday Winner Trophy.

    I have tried several times to enter my summer in the park quilt on quilts by me. It keeps crashing.
