The tippy tops of the Rocky Mountains are covered with ten feet of snow right now! But underneath that blanket of white, wildflower seeds wait patiently. And when summer arrives, those mountain peaks will be bursting with blooms!
If you’re like me, you can’t wait till summer; we need flowers today! Click HERE to learn how to create your own Mountain Lily blocks out of 2.5” strips!
Take a peek at a U.S. map, and you’ll notice that Utah, Colorado, Arizona, and New Mexico are laid out like a giant four patch with perfectly nested seams and lovely 90-degree angles. The Four Corners Monument marks the spot where they all come together. It’s the only place in the country where you can stand in one spot and be in 4 states at once!
This week Jenny is working on a Four Corners quilt. Each block brings together 4 pretty corners with a cute little “monument” in the middle.
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!

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!
When Jenny is in the sewing studio, her mind races a mile a minute with fun new ideas. But she’s not alone! Jenny has a wonderful team of talented quilters. And let me tell you, when those gals get together, the creativity in that room is pure magic!
Today’s quilt design proves that cooperation is king! The Sweet Blend Quilt is a combination of simple elements that come together like a perfectly orchestrated symphony. (Hooray for teamwork!) Click HERE to watch the tutorial!
