Introducing… Let’s Make Art from The Cutting Table Quilt Blog - A Blog for Quilters by Quilters

Two years ago, Sarah Cray was a freelance artist… selling her prints on Etsy, illustrating books, and just simply exploring her creative freedoms was the life Sarah had fallen in love with. But then, she got a call that would result in her being able to take those passions and share her love of art with the world. The call was from ours truly, Al Doan, the co-founder of Missouri Star Quilt Co. The pair had briefly known each other in college, but after a bad experience in shopping art supplies online, he called up the talented Sarah in hopes ...

Spring Quilt Market Recap from The Cutting Table Quilt Blog - A Blog for Quilters by Quilters

I’ll admit it, I’m a Quilt Market newbie. It was my very first time attending this amazing event and I left feeling inspired, exhausted, and simply in awe of all the beauty and talent I’d just witnessed. As a writer for Missouri Star, it’s not often that I make my way out into the public eye. I usually work behind the scenes, but when the opportunity came for me to attend Market in my hometown, I jumped at it!

So we called on you, our amazing Missouri Star family, and you sent boxes and envelopes and dropped off packages, all filled with handmade quilts, blankets and pillowcases. Each created with ...
