Mother’s Choice Remake Quilt

The Mother's Choice Remake quilt from Missouri Star Quilt Co.

Jenny is a rescuer of old, antique blocks. 

She sifts through stacks of orphan blocks at yard sales and antique shops, imagining the quilters who started – but never finished – so many years ago.

When Jenny spotted a long-forgotten Mother’s Choice block, she fell in love! And then…she used a sprinkling of Missouri Star magic to make that pattern new again!

The Mother's Choice Remake quilt from Missouri Star Quilt Co.

Mother’s Choice Remake is a beautiful, simplified version of the old-fashioned Mother’s Choice. This pretty jelly roll quilt is made easy with half-square triangles, flying geese, snowballed corners, and – best of all – zero Y-seams! 

You may know this block as Dove at the Window, Fringed Square, or Laurel Wreath. But no matter the name, this quilt is an absolute stunner!

Fancy Flight Quilt

What do quilters dream of? Flying geese with perfectly sharp points, of course! But sometimes those points get lost in the seam allowance, leaving your little geese tragically beakless. What’s a quilter to do?

In this week’s new tutorial, Jenny demonstrates how to preserve those points with one simple tip.

Psst!! This quilt will be featured in the upcoming issue of BLOCK Magazine (volume 6 Issue 5), subscribe to BLOCK Magazine HERE and don’t miss seeing this quilt in another fun colorway!

Star Crossed Quilt

Spoiler alert! Romeo and Juliet were doomed from the start. It’s right there in the 6th line of the play: “Warning! They’re totally gonna die. Everything ends in a giant ball of disaster.” (I’m paraphrasing, but you get the gist.) Those star-crossed lovers never had a chance!

September has arrived, and I’ve already noticed the first few signs of fall. The sun is setting earlier, there’s a little chill in the morning air, and the geese are on the move! No matter how hot the sun is shining, that first southbound flock of the season tells me autumn is on it’s way.

Pony Express Quilt

MSQC New Tutorial on the Blog!

Learn to make this creative block using HST and snowballed rectangles!

Pony Express riders began their 2000-mile journey in St Joseph, Missouri. (Just 50 miles from Missouri Star!) They raced across the frontier, delivering mail to Sacramento, California at what was then an incredible speed – 10 days! (Thank goodness we live in the age of instant communication! I love technology!)

 

The Pony Express is an intricate block, but it’s really just half-square triangles and flying geese, so you’ll have it stitched up faster than the Pony Express itself! Click HERE to watch the tutorial.
