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!
All the quilts of my childhood had solid backs. Some pink, some red, some navy blue – all plain as plain. For years, it felt like the back of the quilt didn’t really matter at all. But when I started to notice pretty florals, sassy stripes, and exciting colors, I started seeing quilt backing as one more opportunity to let my creativity shine!
This week’s new project, the Sidekick Quilt, is a quick and easy pattern based on the friendship star. It’s cute and colorful, but just wait ‘til you see the backing fabric! It’s bold, fabulous, and anything but boring! Click HERE to watch the tutorial.
When Jenny is designing a new quilt, she always asks herself, “What happens if…?”
What happens if she rotates every other block? What happens if she snowballs two corners? What happens if she uses solids instead of prints?
Today’s new quilt came to life when Jenny found out what happens if HALF square triangles are cut in HALF. Click HERE to learn how to make the Half and Half quilt!
There are over 750 different quilt panels available at missouriquiltco.com. Storybook princesses. Tractors and fire engines. Farm scenes and alphabets and leprechauns. The sky is the limit when quilting with panels, but the question is: How do you transform a panel into a finished quilt?
In this week’s new tutorial, Jenny demonstrates three pretty ways to add a decorative border to your favorite panel. Click HERE to watch the tutorial! We can’t wait to see what you come up with!
