Mo. Star Quilt Co. & Stash Report #45

Oh, oh, I've been naughty again when it comes to buying more fabric.  I've been trying so hard not to buy any more fabric this year.  But then I went to Houston -- will power was good there.  Didn't want to carry big heavy packages around all day and then have to check them.  Then, this week some of my friends invited me to go to the Missouri Star Quilt Company, in Hamilton, MO and we drove.  This means lots of room for packages, no matter how heavy or bulky, right?

Here we are with our beautiful purple shopping bags filled.  It was a rainy, cool day, but no one noticed after spending time shopping in this lovely store.  This is where Jenny films all those great tutorials that you can find on U-tube.  It is also the home of every line of pre-cuts I've ever seen.  At every turn there were charm packs, layer cakes, jelly rolls, cinnamon buns, tiny 2.5" packs (can't remember what they called these) and the rest of the complete collections all conveniently located for the samples on how to use them.  They have so many samples on the walls that my head was spinning from all the inspiration and all I wanted to do was get home and start in on one of them!

Check out their store, daily deals and great simple tutorials on how to use many of the pre-cuts. Jenny is a great teacher and lots of fun.

  1. Thanks for posting the pictures of the shop! I would love to get out there one day to check it out for myself. But I'll live vicariously through you until I do. :)

  2. You came home with less than 5 yards, that's not bad at all.

    I had to look on a map to find Hamilton, it's too far north for a quick trip when we go to visit my in-laws in southern Missouri.

  3. My good friend Margie, works just two blocks from MSQ. So it's always fun when we go to their house for a weekend. One time she got me a personal tour of their shipping offices! I guess you know they are adding class rooms and over night accommodations?!

  4. Pretty pics! What did you buy?!

    This shop has so much, I just know that I would spend my whole year's budget at one time if I ever visited.

  5. Wow - what an amazing shop!!! It's a good thing I wasn't with you - I'd be SO broke by now LOL!!!

  6. It was a great trip! Fun was had by all!

  7. Love the ads and videos from Mo. Star - sounds like you had a good time there!

  8. Oh---- It is a good thing I do not live close to Missouri Star. I would be so broke!!! Love the fabrics in the photos. Glad you had fun.

  9. What? I missed a field trip? I'm so jealous. Looks like you all had fun!
