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!
There are 100 billion stars in the Milky Way galaxy, and I’m starting to think there are just as many ways to stitch up a star quilt! 4-patch stars, wonky stars, wedge stars, rhombus stars—the list goes on and on!
This week Jenny is working on the easiest star block of all: Night Sky! This pattern is made up of simple half-square triangles, but it’s just as stunning as a whole host of heavenly sparklers! Click HERE to watch the tutorial!
Twinkling in the distant night sky is a white dwarf star with a core of pure diamond. Think of it! 10 billion trillion trillion carats, just floating around in outer space! (I’m suddenly feeling an inclination for space travel…) So beautiful, and yet, so out of reach!
The Diamond Dance Quilt, however, is accessible to even the least experienced quilter! This project is quick, easy, and so much fun! Click HERE to watch the tutorial!
It the unwritten law of the sewing room. All sewists must have a 2-year supply of precuts, a jar of random buttons, a drawerful of thread, and a shoebox filled with adorable waves of rickrack and other fun trims.
Rickrack is a vintage classic. It’s takes me back to favorite rag dolls, homemade aprons, and grandma’s kitchen curtains. Jenny’s new Rickrack Quilt has all that sentimental charm, and it’s a cinch to make, too! Click HERE to learn how to transform your favorite 2.5 inch strips into a zig-zaggy masterpiece!
