If you are new to Missouri Star and haven’t watched many of Jenny’s quilt tutorials, come on in and pull up a chair. Whether you are watching from Iowa, Idaho, or Iran, Jenny will talk you through how to piece a quilt block as if you were right here in her sewing room. Jenny is friendly and down-to-earth. You will sometimes see her make a mistake in her videos; she just laughs, fixes the problem, and moves right on. After all, that is what you’ll need to do if you make a mistake at home. Her motto is, “Finished is better than perfect.” Her ability to simplify quilt-building is the secret sauce of quilt tutorials by Jenny Doan.
Jenny’s Missouri Star quilt tutorials focus on patterns for quilt tops–most often using precuts. You will notice that there is a SUBSCRIBE button for YouTube on this webpage. Subscribing is free, and it will help you keep up with new YouTube Jenny Doan tutorials that launch on Fridays. YouTube is another easy way to access all of the Missouri Quilt Company tutorials.
Jenny loves quilting with precuts because it saves time. If you are looking for quilt tutorials using Jelly Rolls, check out the Cascade Quilt Tutorial. The Cascade pattern uses both a solid and a print Jelly Roll to create a twin-bed size quilt. The Fence Rail Star Quilt Tutorial is a great Jelly Roll pattern for a crib size quilt. The finished size of the Card Trick Quilt Tutorial is a generous twin that requires just one quilting Jelly Roll. As the name implies, this quilt has a trick: the blocks look like they are tucked underneath each other!
If you fell in love with some charm packs on your last shopping trip, you might be looking for the perfect way to use them. Check out Jenny’s quilt tutorials using Charm Packs. The Jitterbug Quilt Tutorial is a fun Charm Pack-friendly quilt. Jenny’s sample quilt pops with turquoise and raspberry, but you could fashion this quilt from your two favorite complementary colors. The finished size of the Jitterbug is 71x71 inches. The 9 Patch Swap Quilt Tutorial also features Charm Packs to create a lovely 64x76 inch quilt. These are only a few of many free quilting tutorials in which Jenny demonstrates how to use precuts to create beautiful quilt tops.
In many ways Missouri Star tutorials are the heart and soul of the business. If you are a beginning quilter, you can learn how by watching Jenny. If you are an experienced quilter you can learn time-saving tricks, watch demonstrations of unfamiliar techniques or tools, and get ideas for patterns you might like to try. The quilt tutorial videos began with Jenny. But now you can watch The Final Stitch with Jenny’s daughter Natalie Earnhart and learn how to finish your quilts. You can watch At Home With Misty, hosted by Jenny’s daughter-in-law Misty Doan, and be inspired with project ideas for your home. You can also peruse archives of Misty’s previous show Missouri Star Live for oodles of ideas. If you want creative projects for kids, check out Laura Piland’s Creating for Kids sewing tutorials.
