When you give the gift of flowers, you’re sending a message – so choose carefully!
Sunflowers symbolize friendship, red roses represent romantic love, and bells of Ireland spread good luck. But a potful of petunias or orange lilies? Well, they pretty much say, “I hate your stinkin’ guts.”
This week Jenny is stitching up a wonderful bouquet of fabric flowers, and you don’t have to worry! The gift of a quilt practically shouts, “Love ya!” Click HERE to watch the tutorial!
When Edyta Sitar was a little girl, she cut pieces from her mother’s good drapes to make a decorative pillow. Thanks to a wise and patient mother, Edyta survived the incident and grew up to become a world-famous designer.
This week Edyta is in the studio with Jenny to demonstrate how to put together her block of the month quilt, Harmony. This applique project was designed exclusively for Missouri Star, and it is available by subscription only. Click HERE to subscribe, and we will send everything needed to make the first block right away. After that, you will receive the supplies for one additional block each month until your quilt top is complete! Click HERE to watch the tutorial!
I always thought the daisy was such a sweet and simple flower, but it turns out I was wrong! The daisy isn’t a flower at all; it’s two flowers! The first flower is made up of the long, white petals we love to pluck while reciting, “He loves me. He loves me not.” The second flower is the cheery yellow center. I guess you could say every bloom is its own bouquet!
In this week’s new tutorial, Jenny combines simple white charms with a pretty roll of 2.5 inch strips, and the results are as sweet as a field of daisies!

Australia is famous for its many national treasures: The Great Barrier Reef. The Sydney Opera House. Koalas and kangaroos. And, of course, the ridiculously attractive Hugh Jackman. You may not know, however, that Australia is also home to some of the best quilters in the world!
On a recent trip to Australia, Jenny picked up this pretty new quilt pattern from a local quilter. (What a souvenir!) Click HERE to learn how to turn your half square triangles into a “treasure” from the Land Down Under!
The North Star is fixed in the heavens directly about the North Pole. While every other star is on a perpetual journey across the sky, the North Star holds its place with perfection. Centuries before the advent of location technology, sailors, travelers, and escaped slaves depended on that steadfast star to guide the way.
This week’s new project is the North Star. Click HERE to fall in love with a quilt as timeless as the star itself!
