One of the benefits of being made of paper is that Jenny can travel comfortably around the world or around your neighborhood. Print, decorate, and take your very own Jenny along on your daily adventures! You can also mail her to your quilt-y friends near and far. Ask them to take Jenny to their favorite landmarks and take pictures to share with us so we can see all of the fun Jenny had. Share your Jenny photos at #flatjennyontheroad. Thanks for playing!
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!

“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!
Coloring never gets old, from our first crayon masterpieces, to scribbling in the margins of notes, there is something soothing and satisfying about coloring between–and sometimes outside of–the lines.
