Missouri Star Quilt Company
A Quilter’s Paradise
By popular request from many of our customers we have designed the perfect tour for the quilt aficionado.
To make a beautiful quilt, you need three things: motivation, skills, and quality supplies! The Missouri Star Quilt Company’s goal is to provide quilters (or to-be quilters) with all three. Their rapidly growing library of free quilting tutorials on QuiltingTutorials.com provides thousands with not only the essential skills to complete projects, but also with the encouragement and motivation to pick up a rotary cutter and some fabric and get started! Their tutorials focus on beginners and more advanced quilters alike, and aim to teach quilters quicker and easier ways to make gorgeous creations. They also have a flourishing Quilting Forum where thousands of quilters can exchange knowledge, offer each other support and just plain have fun! With the desire to quilt and some know-how comes the best part – shopping for beautiful fabric! They offer a rapidly growing selection of quilting supplies, including the best selection of precut fabrics anywhere, all at great prices.
