Now that Thanksgiving is behind us it's time to start Christmas shopping for your family and friends. And the good news is you still have time to make something for them! You could make them festive napkins with a matching table runner, a wall hanging, or you could even pick up a coloring book for that friend or family member who is still a kid at heart. We have plenty of things to choose from for every type of person you're shopping for this Christmas.
Mark Your Calendar!
Don't forget to mark your calendar for our Christmas open house! It's on December 12th, 2015 from 10-3. Come shop around and enjoy refreshments and also see the employee's blocks of the month be unveiled. Trust me you will want to be there.
We have been really enjoying all the customers bringing in their projects to show us! And you might have even seen yourself on our inspiration board too! Next time you stop in check out the inspiration board and make sure you tag yourself on your picture if you haven't already.

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!
