Happy Birthday, Jenny! Let's Celebrate!

Happy Birthday Jenny

If Missouri Star is an ice cream sundae, Jenny Doan is the cherry on top!


She brings fun, energy, and plenty of heart to everything she touches. We’re sure lucky to call her our own!


Today is Jenny's birthday, and we're celebrating with fun birthday party project ideas, yummy recipes, throwbacks, and some Jenny fun facts!


Jenny Doan's Birthday
  • What is your favorite birthday memory?
  • When the kids filled my yard with signs that said, 'Over the hill and Lordy Lordy look who’s forty!'

What is your favorite color? Any particular reason?

Blues and greens! They are the color of the earth and sky!

What is your favorite place to visit and why?

I love to be out in nature. It restores my soul and causes me to slow down and take in the beauty around me.  

What's your favorite quilt you've made recently?

The quilt I made recently that I am in love with is the bird quilt (Block Lotto). I just love how whimsical it is and it makes me smile.  

  • What's something people don't know about you? A fun fact?
  • I love water and love to swim. I was a boys scout merit badge counselor for swimming.
  • Besides quilting, what is your favorite hobby?
  • Gardening.
  • What's your favorite flower or plant?
  • I love them all, but the simple Daisy always makes me smile.
  • Everywhere. I just returned from Italy and have more pictures of floors that anything else.
