It’s our birthday month and we’ll quilt if we want to!
Ah, September. The leaves are changing, the kids are back-to-schooling, and the sweaters and hot cocoa are calling! Even though our shops are temporarily closed, like every September we are planning lots of Birthday Bash fun – online! So be sure to save the dates in this month’s quilt planner – September 24 – 25!

It’s August, the Sunday of the summer. Our long, sunny days are coming to an end as we prepare for back to school, dark evenings, and cold mornings. But for us quilters, it’s also the time to start our holiday quilting and sewing!
As the “Monday” of year slowly creeps in, stay inspired and organized this month with our FREE August Quilt Planner as you begin all your holiday projects!
July is here and with it comes warm summer nights, bursting fireworks and an opportunity to create some truly wonderful quilts!
Red, white and blue are the traditional colors of July here in Hamilton, Missouri. There’s no better way to enjoy a fireworks display than laying on a beautiful new quilt created from patriotic fabric just for the occasion! Jenny’s classic Stars and Stripes quilt is an absolute go-to for this time of year!
Adding a patriotic color palette can change the feel of any quilt. Check out how great the Stretched Periwinkle quilt looks in the latest issue of BLOCK Magazine once a little July flair is added!
Keep in mind though that as we enter into the second half of the year, the holiday season is right around the corner. While we here at Missouri Star have some great, festive ideas coming soon to help your holiday gift planning, the most important step is to stay organized!

Hello June! ☀️ We’ve made it to the sunniest season of the year here in Missouri, with longer days and warm nights filled with all of the simple magical moments that summer brings.
While we may be spending more of our days outside, we have lots of time set aside for quilting, including Jenny’s go-to wedding present, a picnic quilt! We’re such fans of the Charm Quilt on Point, and all it takes are two charms packs and a little bit of yardage!
Want in on a little secret just between us? Jenny is working on a super fun, super simple Log Cabin quilt tutorial this summer! Be sure to sign up for our weekly email newsletter and download the Quilting Tutorials app so you don’t miss it! Until then, watch all of our Log Cabin quilt tutorials here!
“The world’s favorite season is the spring. All things seem possible in May.”
-Edwin Way Teale
Green is waving from the trees, yellow dandelions are popping, and our gardens are blooming. The year is beginning to look brighter, and not just because of spring colors. Though we may have missed weddings and graduations, we makers still know how to celebrate!
As you plan out your May projects for Mother’s Day, baby showers, and other life changing events – remember May represents new beginnings and anything is possible!
