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.

In February, Jenny made a Sweet Treats quilt using Cake Mix Recipe 1 by Moda. It was so quick and easy, we just had to try another Recipe!
This week Jenny is using Recipe 2 to make Tea Cakes. This block reminds me of a sweet little bear claw, and it comes together in a flash – with minimal waste! Click HERE to watch the tutorial!
I just watched Jenny’s Fence Rail Star tutorial, and all I can think is, “Why didn’t I think of that?”
Seriously folks, this quilt is so easy! It’s just strip sets and snowballs, nothing fancy. But somehow, those simple little elements combine to create a gorgeous, intricate pattern of stars and stripes.
