This Week's Quilting Tutorial

Make an Elephant and Donkey Quilt!

Pixel quilting is all the rage, but it’s really not a new technique. In 1931, the Kansas City Star published a mosaic elephant pattern as a tribute to a beloved elephant at the local zoo. The next year, a companion quilt was released. This one featured a pixelated donkey named Giddap. Both are cute as can be, and so easy to put together!

Who Is The 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.
