BLOCK Magazine: 2022 Volume 9 Issue 6 Sneak Peek

Our BLOCK magazine is the inspirational go-to for quilters! Each issue features patterns, education, stories, and oodles of Missouri Star fun! An annual subscription includes 6 pattern-filled issues, and every physical issue comes with a FREE digital issue packed with bonus content. Go paperless with a digital-only subscription or pick up individual issues, too.


We're taking you behind the scenes for a sneak peek at Volume 9, issue 6 of BLOCK magazine. This issue's theme is Reflection, and it's filled with project inspiration, educational articles, inspirational stories, and bonus goodies.

"I’m thankful I’ve had another year to show my creative side and meet so many remarkable makers. I’m especially excited to give some homemade gifts to my loved ones, as we do every year.


Looking forward to our 10th year of creating for BLOCK magazine, I’m reminded that even though this is considered the “season of giving,” every day lived is a day we can give to others. There’s always something we can give, whether it be a quilt we’ve made or simply our presence for those who need a pick-me-up. We devote our time and talent where we can so we stay connected to the community. This is how we show our hearts, how we touch the lives of others and inspire them to do the same." subscribe to read more

Quilting in an Amish Paradise

It’s no secret that Hamilton is full of wonderful things to experience, but you may not know about the wonders that lie just beyond our little paradise. Not so far away is the historic town of Jamesport, home to the largest Old Order Amish community in Missouri.


These families contribute most of the handmade wonders available for sale in the Jamesport shops. Among these baked goods, crafts, and friendly smiles, one can also find some gorgeous, traditional, hand-sewn quilts. We dig further into this hidden quilt gem to learn how this community tells its tales through needle and thread.
