This Week's Quilting Tutorial

Jitterbug Quilt

The Jitterbug was one of the most popular dances of the swing era, but how did it get such a funny name? Turns out “jitterbug” is just a combo of two cute little words: jitter and bug. But put ‘em together and you’ve got a name worth remembering! This week we’re working on the Jitterbug Quilt. And, like its namesake, it's based on two simple little elements: the 4-patch and the half-square triangle. Combine those quilting powerhouses with an extra dose of creativity, and you’ve got a quilt as swanky as the swingingest jitterbug on the dance floor!

Who Is Missouri Star Quilt Co?

In November 2008, the kids got together and bought Mom a long-arm quilt machine so she could machine quilt for the local community. Back then, we had no idea that we had planted a seed that would grow so quickly. We opened a little shop where Mom and us worked. We roped in our friends, then Dad, in-laws, and... well now practically anyone who can use a rotary cutter in Hamilton, Missouri is involved! We are a family business that understands customer service and always strives to do the right thing for our customers, the people who make it possible for us to keep doing what we love.
