Rumor has it that in 18th century Japan, kites were totally banned. The reason? Folks were having so much fun flying kites, they weren’t getting any work done. I have to admit, I can relate. When I get excited about a new quilt, everything else fades away. The dishes can pile up in the sink, the lawn can grow knee-high, but I’m happy as a clam in my sewing room with a stack of freshly pressed quilt blocks.
This week Jenny is working on a new pattern that is so cute, you may have to put your chores on hold while you stitch up a kite or two with Jenny. Click HERE to watch the tutorial!
Every Tuesday afternoon at about 3:30pm, on our Quilting Deals – Missouri Star Quilt Co. Facebook page, we do a Facebook Live video! This week we had the opportunity to visit Jenny in her sewing studio and she was so generous to sit with us and answer some questions! We had a great time with her (as always) and learned some new things!

In the video, we talked about this gorgeous quilt that hangs behind Jenny’s desk in her studio. Here’s a photo so you can really see what all the fuss is about. Have you ever inherited any antique quilts from friends or family? These quilts can be so inspiring and hold so much history and meaning in every stitch. Did you know that Jenny collects antique sewing machines? Check out the adorable mini sewing machines on the shelf above the quilt!
Make sure to follow our Facebook page, so you don’t miss any of our upcoming Live videos! If there’s something you’d like to see in a future video, leave a comment here and let us know!
Are you planning a trip to Hamilton, MO? If you want to make sure you get to meet Jenny, the best way to do that is to attend one of her trunk shows (if you’ve never experienced it before, it’s a must!) Find the schedule HERE!
Some folks collect snow globes, coins, or baseball cards. But Jenny? Jenny collects old, forgotten quilt blocks. She’s always on the lookout for unfinished treasures, and when she gathers just the right combination, it’s project time!
In today’s new tutorial, Jenny demonstrates a quick and easy “quilt as you go” method that can transform a set of vintage embroidery blocks into a finished quilt.
So grab some hot cocoa, watch the tutorial and pull out those orphan blocks you’ve been saving for just the right project!
