Crumb Quilted Stars with special guest The Quilting Marine

He's here to remind us, "It's only fabric and it's only thread!" and get us all building quilts! Meet Mark, The Quilting Marine, as he shares with Misty, the Missouri Star Family and "Quilt Nation" his love of quilting. Learn how making "Emotion Blocks" from crumb quilting projects has helped him - and many others - tackle tough moments and find a happy place to process and find peace. Making is healing and The Quilting Marine's making some truly beautiful works of heart. Grab some scraps, some tears and some laughs - and share with the wonderful people in your life - you never know who the next quilter is going to be!

 

Meet Mark

The Quilting Marine

People often find quilting in times of need to help them through difficult situations – that’s how The Quilting Marine first discovered his love for quilting. After serving 20 years in the United States Marine Corps, The Quilting Marine found quilting as his therapy for PTSD related issues. Now, he has a new goal and his YouTube channel says it best, “I taught myself to quilt and would like to help you make quilts that you can admire for years to come.”

Want to know more about The Quilting Marine and his incredible journey into quilting? Join us on the Missouri Star blog! Until then, be sure to follow him on Instagram and Facebook and don’t forget to subscribe to his YouTube channel to keep up with his journey while learning more about the art of quilting.
