You Gnome I Love You Quilt

You Gnome I love you quilt tutorial by Jenny Doan of the Missouri Star Quilt Company.

Have you noticed? Gnomes have taken the world by storm, and we couldn’t be more pleased! 

The BIGGEST gnome in the world stands 26 feet tall in Saanich, Canada. (His hat is the size of a family tent!)

The largest COLLECTION of gnomes resides in Devon, UK. (Human visitors to the woodland reserve wear pointy hats to blend in with the 2000+ gnomes. True story!)

And the most ADORABLE gnomes are found right HERE in Jenny’s new quilt tutorial! 

We’re using Hello Melly’s “You Gnome I Love You” quilt pattern to whip up little layer cake gnomes that are sweet as can be!

Signature Quilt

Signature Quilt by Jenny Doan of the Missouri Star Quilt Company.

Signature quilts – or friendship quilts – first became popular in the 1840s. Sometimes they were used as sentimental wedding gifts. Sometimes they honored a beloved teacher or minister. And sometimes, they were carried across the plains by pioneer women as a reminder of dear friends left behind. 

These quilts were so cherished, many have survived the generations and can be found in hope chests and museums even today.

This week, Jenny is making her own family signature quilt. It’s adorned with hand-written names of all the Doan kids and grandkids, and I have a feeling this pretty quilt will become more and more special as the years go by!

Star Sashed Nine-Patch Quilt

The 4th of July is getting close. Let’s celebrate with stars!

The original American flag had just 13 stars—one for each state, and we’ve added a star with every new state. 

Imagine those poor flag makers. Just as they mastered one design, they’d get the news: “Hold up, everyone! Kentucky is now a state! Start unpicking, and rearrange your stars!” 

(Sometimes the layout was changed every single year. That’s a lot of star shuffling!)

This week we’re stitching up a Star Sashed Nine-Patch in patriotic shades of red, white, and blue. It’s a quick and easy jelly roll pattern made with 9-patches, 4-patches, and snowballed sashing. Put ‘em all together, and a sea of dazzling stars appears like magic. No fuss, no muss!

Goose Tracks Quilt

Goose Tracks Quilt by Missouri Star Quilt Company.

There’s a beautiful, old Goose Tracks quilt at the Smithsonian Museum in Washington, D.C. 

It was made 150 years ago by Mrs. Ellen Parsons of Shelbyville, Tennessee. A hand-written note explains: “Mrs. Parsons planted and grew the cotton in her garden. She picked the cotton and spun it into thread. She wove the threads into cloth to make the lining for the quilt. She pieced and quilted it by hand.” Phew! That’s a lot of work!

This week, Jenny is whipping up a quick and easy version of the Goose Tracks pattern using precut charm packs.

She didn’t spin her own home-grown cotton, but she DID add a darling scalloped border. (Don’t you worry! Jenny will walk you through every step of that fancy bias binding!)

Summer Squares Quilt

Summer Squares Quilt for the Missouri Star Quilt Company.

In winter, quilts are for snuggling. We wrap them ‘round our shoulders like thick, cozy cocoons and pile them on our beds to stay toasty through the night.

But in summertime … those quilts take on a whole new life!

Jenny Doan and the Summer Squares quilt by the Missouri Star Quilt Company.

We carry them to picnics and t-ball games. We spread them out for fireworks and parades. They join us on camping trips and days at the beach. Summer is adventure time for quilts! 

This week Jenny is working on a brand new Summer Squares quilt. It’s a pretty jelly roll pattern based on one of our all-time favorites, Summer in the Park
