New Friday Tutorial: The Studio Star Quilt

MSQC New Tutorial on the Blog!

Make a Studio Star Quilt with this Free Tutorial using Precuts! Also known as the Sister's Choice or Father's Choice Quilt!

We’ve got a super fun quilt to share with you today. It’s extra special because it happens to be one of Jenny’s very favorites. She even keeps a metal replica of this block on the wall of her sewing studio, so while it’s sometimes known as Sister’s Choice or Father’s Choice, we’re calling our version The Studio Star Quilt. (Yes! Another star quilt! You can never have too many of those!)

Finding Inspiration: Fabric and style

Mom’s sewing corner in the Shop! Bright and happy. Look at those Vintage Aprons! I love all of it!

I mentioned a few days ago that I was going to start on a 30’s style quilt….  Well, my best laid plans were side stepped by 5 of the cutest kids you’ve ever seen (mine) and I STILL haven’t gotten to it!  I do have the fabric picked out and everything ready to go, so I have my fingers crossed that this is ‘the’ week it will start!

Hahah…please tell me you know what I mean?  I hate making plans and then having thing after thing get in my way!  UGH!

So, today I want to show you some inspiration that I have to get me in the mood for some retro sewing.

Vintage patterns make me so happy!  Oh my goodness, I just love the style of clothes!  What I wouldn’t give to be part of such an iconic era!  {at least for a few days.  I do like my smart phone and warm car}  Wow, look at that waist and all those fun  dresses.

Looking back is always more fun, isn’t it?

Here’s to today…to getting SOMETHING crossed off your list and making the best of it!

Have a fabulous day!


Oh, I didn’t even mention that we got another 8 inches of snow on Monday, did I?  Haha, can you believe that!?  At least today will be in the 60’s and tomorrow in the 70’s!  Yay for some sun!!
