It's arrived! The Fall, 2015 edition of the Missouri Star Quilt Company BLOCK is now available!
In this edition, Jenny features ten patterns mixing new ideas while revisiting old favorites. The Merry-Go-Round quilt (pictured above) commerates a bygone era where the end of summer was marked by that last trip to the beach or boardwalk and a memorable ride on a carousel.
The Easy Hashtag quilt will be a real hit with a teen on your Christmas list. While we might recognize it as the number or pound sign, the hashtag has proven to be an effective and easy way for us to "link to other messages of similar theme or content" while using social media.
Jenny also takes an updated look at the Dresden pattern in Dresden Squared and has new suggestions on how to make the Cathedral Window easy. In addition, she always has great ideas on making each one easy and fun!

With winter fast approaching, and the holidays coming with it, you've probably started thinking about how you are going to decorate your house for the winter season. You've probably thought about putting lights up on the house and a wreath on the door but what about the inside of your house? Why should you let the festive decorations stop outside? Why not let them come inside as well. Or maybe you have thought about decorating the inside of your house but don't know how or don't have decorations for the inside. Well worry no more! Quilt n Go has a variety of different projects for all skill levels. Whether you have lots of time or little time we have a project for you. We have the patterns for napkins, beautiful table runners, and cute monthly minis. This season you could make a new table runner and show it off at Thanksgiving or even Christmas dinner. Or if table runners aren't really your thing you could make festive napkins that will add a nice touch to the table at Thanksgiving dinner. Or if you already have plenty of table decorations you could decorate your bedroom or any room in your house with a gorgeous wall hanging or mini wall hanging. We have plenty of festive panels that you could just add batting and binding and there you go, you have a gorgeous wall hanging that took little time and adds a festive spirit to the room. And since the wall hanging didn't take you very long you could make a mini wall hanging to hang on any door in your house! So come stop in our shop and find a project to make for the upcoming and fast approaching holiday season.

You've seen them everywhere. From commercials to the toys that come in happy meals. The minions are everywhere you go. And chances are the kids in your family are obsessed with the little yellow guys. And let's face it you probably can't help to love them as well. So to contribute to their growing popularity you can make the kids something with minions. We have recently got our minion fabric back in stock! But you better come in quick before we sell out of it again. We have a minion panel and other bolts of minion themed fabrics. Don't pass up this opportunity to sew with the minions and make something nice for the kids (or yourself)!
