It's The Beginning Of A Garden Party

I love the sound of these words:

"Hi, I'm Jenny from Missouri Star Quilt Company."

It gets me all pumped up and ready to watch her video and learn something new.

What's that? Missouri Star Quilt Company now has a magazine?
Well, sign me up, of course!

The magazine was accidently delivered to a distant neighbor (seriously, Barbara lives several blocks away) who kindly hand delivered it to me. That visit led to going to a new quilt group led by her. At yesterday's meeting Barbara showed us a quilt she had started using a pattern from the magazine.

Not that I'm competitive or anything (okay, so maybe a little bit), but as soon as I got home 
I grabbed the magazine and after looking through it I decided to make a quilt from it, too. 

Garden Party Quilt

How many one and a half inch squares do I have to 
cut out...and charm blocks? 336? Wow!

This may take a while!

To be continued...


  1. Oh being competitive isnt such a bad it?? lol

  2. I love the MSQ magazine (especially no advertisements!!!) Look forward to seeing your finished quilt Carol :)

  3. Your stack of charms are pretty. The quilt will be beautiful.

  4. I am buying the magazine and I don't even quilt. I just love Jenny and her amazing teaching tutorials. Your quilt will be fabulous. How many whats? Whew! Creative Quilting Bliss Dear...

  5. I love watching their videos, and our quilting guild does a lot of their work too! Go sew girl! Can't wait to see your work!

  6. Oh Carol I so love Jenny! and I love that quilt! I ordered the magazine when it began and I'm so glad I did - it's just so nice to have a magazine without all the ads and with NO postcards falling out. :) blessings, marlene

  7. Happy sewing and cutting and sewing and cutting and

  8. One charm pack? 42 charms cut into four squares each? Tiny square to two adjacent sides to make flower petals?

    Am I on the right track?

    Am anxious for more feedback on the magazine.

  9. Thank you so much for this post. A friend emailed me the picture of this quilt from FB and asked if I could use it for her daughter's 100 Good Wishes Quilt and I couldn't find the pattern. Now I know where to get it.
