Out on the playground, games have to be quick, easy, and lots of fun. Truth be told, my rules for quilts are just the same! Luckily, Four Square fits the bill on all counts—at recess AND in the sewing room! Click HERE to see how fun it is to whip up this quick and easy quilt!
We’re not sure if there is a prettier combination than quilts and flowers. Put the two together, and it’s just like paradise! We had the opportunity to enjoy both in abundance at the first-ever, Garden of Quilts at Ashton Gardens in Thanksgiving Point, Utah this Sept. 12-14. (And yes, we’re still pinching ourselves that such a magical event really did happen!)
Jenny, Misty, Natalie and the Missouri Star On the Road crew were all on hand to take part in the festivities!
Jenny taught two fabulous quilt classes (Half Square Triangles and Totally Tulips), and presented one of her amazing trunk shows in front of 700 attendees in a stunning outdoor amphitheater.
The most awe-inspiring part of this event was the more than 700 quilts on display throughout Ashton Gardens. Dozens of our Missouri Star quilts were in the Garden, including all of these on display in the stately Italian Garden.
The Garden of Quilts was jointly hosted by Riley Blake Designs as part of their 10th anniversary celebration, and if you are looking for a special way to celebrate their milestone birthday, be sure to join founder, Cindy Cloward for her special retreat this Nov 12-15 at Missouri Star. She’ll be teaching the commemorative Celebrate Sewing quilt, and all the supplies needed to make this beauty are included in the cost of the retreat!
On our last day in the Garden of Quilts, Jenny and Misty took us on a tour of our Missouri Star quilts, plus a little sneak peek of the Secret Garden. Enjoy the tour below!

Every week Jenny whips up a fabulous new quilt block. But this week? Well, it’s a little different because she’s actually not making a new quilt block. She’s making six.

Picture this: You have the PERFECT pack of 10 inch squares. Too pretty to chop into teeny-tiny pieces. Too special to hide away in your fabric stash. What do you do?
