Our hearts are certainly full this week as we celebrate 11 years as a company and what better way to express how we feel than through a quilt?
This week’s new wall hanging is a sweet little heart quilt that comes together in a flash. Make one for a friend and it’s sure to make them smile every time they wrap up in it! Click HERE to watch the tutorial!
What do quilters dream of? Flying geese with perfectly sharp points, of course! But sometimes those points get lost in the seam allowance, leaving your little geese tragically beakless. What’s a quilter to do?
In this week’s new tutorial, Jenny demonstrates how to preserve those points with one simple tip.
Psst!! This quilt will be featured in the upcoming issue of BLOCK Magazine (volume 6 Issue 5), subscribe to BLOCK Magazine HERE and don’t miss seeing this quilt in another fun colorway!
Have you heard of “glamping?” It’s just like camping…but with a touch of glamour! Instead of roughing it with the bare essentials, you bring along the comforts of home: running water, air conditioning, a welcome mat, and a real queen bed!
Here at Missouri Star, we hold an annual glamping retreat. Quilters make the trek to Hamilton with the cutest little trailers in tow. Some trailers are painted pink and blue. Some have polka dot curtains. Some are decorated with plastic pink flamingos. The whole scene is so adorable, it inspired this week’s new quilt!
Are you coming through Missouri this summer? Come and get a taste of Hamilton and pick up your very own Row by Row block pattern in the Main Shop or Penney’s Quilt Shop!
The Row by Row Experience is a wonderful program started in 2011 by Janet Lutz to help quilt shops attract more visitors in what might otherwise be slower summer months. All the quilt shops participating in Row by Row (find all the other participating shops HERE) have their very own free pattern to help you make a quilt block. If you are the first to complete a quilt using at least eight rows from eight different 2019 participating shops, you win a stash of 25 fat quarters, and you win a bonus prize if you use our Missouri Star block and bring it in to our shop!
The theme for Row by Row this year is “Taste the Experience” and we have our very own pattern for you to collect! Below is a sample of our block.
To see what the rest of the pattern looks like, come to the Main Shop or Penney’s Quilt Shop in Hamilton and ask for our Row by Row pattern! Each customer is limited to one pattern. We also have a special Row by Row kit available!
Our Row by Row experience will be available in-store until Sept. 3, which is also the deadline for participants to turn in their quilt to win a prize.
