Spool Stars and Stitches Quilt from The Cutting Table Quilt Blog - A Blog for Quilters by Quilters

Spools and Stitches Quilt by Jenny Doan for the Missouri Star Quilt Company.

In 1820 – for the very first time – thread was sold on spools. (Before that, it was skeins or hanks. Can you imagine the tangles?!)

The spools were made by a local woodturner, and the thread was wound by hand at the Clark Brothers’ factory in Paisley, Scotland. Like old fashioned soda bottles, these wooden spools came with an extra half-penny charge that was refunded when the empty spool was returned to the shop. My, how times have changed!

Spools and Stitches by Jenny Doan for the Missouri Star Quilt Company.

This week, Jenny is whipping up a homage to the magnificent spool with a brand new jelly roll quilt.

Grandma Mae’s Economy Block from The Cutting Table Quilt Blog - A Blog for Quilters by Quilters

The Grandma Mae's Economy Block Quilt from Missouri Star Quilt Co.

Mae Emma Plumb was a talented lady. 

She sewed and painted and baked excellent pies. She kept a lovely flower garden and volunteered countless hours crafting costumes and planning skits for the local Boy Scout troop. And, best of all, she made quilts. 

Years and years have passed – four generations, in fact – but by some magic, one of Mae’s quilts still exists. It belongs to Mae’s great-granddaughter Kate, our very own Missouri Star marketing manager.

The Grandma Mae's Economy Block Quilt from Missouri Star Quilt Co.

Of course, when Jenny saw Grandma Mae’s antique quilt, she fell head-over-heels in love! She did a bit of research and found ...

Boho Blooms Quilt from The Cutting Table Quilt Blog - A Blog for Quilters by Quilters

Boho Blooms Quilt by Jenny Doan of the Missouri Star Quilt Co.

Picture this: You are relaxing next to a desert campfire. Rocky cliffs and towering saguaros are silhouetted by a fire-red sunset. The scent of sagebrush floats in the cool, evening air. You wrap a quilt around your shoulders and listen for the call of a distant coyote.

Of course, such an idyllic moment demands a carefully chosen quilt—and we’ve got just the thing!

Boho Blooms by Jenny Doan of Missouri Star Quilt Co.

Boho Blooms is a beautiful Southwestern quilt pattern inspired by the classic Squash Blossom. It comes together quickly with layer cake squares and snowballed corners. Best of all, Jenny turns the scraps into a pretty ...

Periwinkle Plates Quilt from The Cutting Table Quilt Blog - A Blog for Quilters by Quilters

The Periwinkle Plates quilt tutorial from Missouri Star Quilt co.

The Periwinkle Template is a magical thing. (In fact, it has its very own playlist of projects!)

We’ve used it for spiderwebs, mug rugs, and butterflies. We’ve used it for modern quilts and old-fashioned classics.

But this week, I think we may have found its true calling.

The Periwinkle Plates quilt tutorial from Missouri Star Quilt co.

Periwinkle Plates is a breathtaking applique pattern made with a layer cake, a charm pack, and our beloved template. It’s put together like a simplified Dresden Plate—with only 6 blades instead of 20! 

Jenny used Christmas fabric in her quilt, but – as always – your quilt will look beautiful in ...

Lakeview Terrace Quilt from The Cutting Table Quilt Blog - A Blog for Quilters by Quilters

Lakeview Terrace Quilt by Jenny Doan of the Missouri Star Quilt Company.

I’ve never met a sunset I didn’t love. 

Big-city sunsets always impress, with skyscrapers silhouetted against a golden sky. Winter sunsets transform freshly-fallen snow into acres of pink cotton candy. 

But nothing compares to sunset on the lake. Those colors dance on rippling water, creating a light show like nothing on earth! 

Lakeview Terrace Quilt by Jenny Doan of the Missouri Star Quilt Company.

This week Jenny is whipping up a Lakeview Terrace jelly roll quilt with colorful bargello chevrons that remind us of sunset-tipped waves. What a dream!

Butterfly House Quilt from The Cutting Table Quilt Blog - A Blog for Quilters by Quilters

The Butterfly House Quilt Tutorial from Missouri Star Quilt Co.

A butterfly is the pickiest of guests. 
Invite her for brunch, and she won’t eat a bite—unless you serve her favorite food. (Milkweed for monarchs; white cedar for hairstreaks.)

The Butterfly House Quilt Tutorial from Missouri Star Quilt Co.

On evening strolls, the weather must be perfect. If it’s too chilly, your fluttery friend will simply stop, drop, and nap. 

And no matter how lovely the guest room, it won’t tempt Miss Butterfly. Oh, she may request a posh butterfly house. But rest assured she’ll never step inside.

This week Jenny is stitching up a layer cake butterfly quilt fit for a queen. She’s ...

Signature Quilt from The Cutting Table Quilt Blog - A Blog for Quilters by Quilters

Signature Quilt by Jenny Doan of the Missouri Star Quilt Company.

Signature quilts – or friendship quilts – first became popular in the 1840s. Sometimes they were used as sentimental wedding gifts. Sometimes they honored a beloved teacher or minister. And sometimes, they were carried across the plains by pioneer women as a reminder of dear friends left behind. 

These quilts were so cherished, many have survived the generations and can be found in hope chests and museums even today.

Signature Quilt by Jenny Doan of the Missouri Star Quilt Company.

This week, Jenny is making her own family signature quilt. It’s adorned with hand-written names of all the Doan kids and grandkids, and I have a feeling this pretty quilt will become ...

Boardwalk Quilt from The Cutting Table Quilt Blog - A Blog for Quilters by Quilters

Boardwalk Quilt by Jenny Doan of the Missouri Star Quilt Company.

Quilters find inspiration everywhere we look. 

We see quilts in old tile floors. We see quilts in stained glass windows. We even see quilts in patchwork fields of wheat and corn.

This week, Jenny is stitching up a new layer cake quilt inspired by childhood memories of the California Coast. 

You see, when Jenny was a little girl, her family loved to visit the beach at Santa Cruz. Even now she can picture that beautiful boardwalk stretched across the sand like long, pieced strips.
