In May, we plan to release a book that includes a selection of 25 of the first patterns offered to My Star Collection subscribers. The book, called “My Stars: Patterns from The Kansas City Star, Vol. I,” will include redrafted patterns that were published in The Kansas City Star newspaper sometime between 1928 and 1961. Each pattern will include templates, fabric requirements, and assembly instructions, as well as the history of the block. But we’re missing one thing – quilts made up of these blocks!
This is where you come in! If you have a quilt made up of any of the blocks listed below and would like to have it published in our book, please email us a sample picture. If chosen, we’ll ship your quilt to our studios to be photographed and then back again – we pay for shipping – and we’ll give you a free copy of the book once it is released.
Below are the patterns we’d like to see quilts made of:
Broken Sugar Bowl
Caps for Witches and Dunces
Four Patch Fox and Goose
Friendship Name Chain
Sail Boat in Blue and White
Turtle on a Quilt
(Click on the attached pdf at the bottom to see images of these patterns.)
You can email your pictures to email@example.com. If chosen, we will credit you as the quiltmaker in the book!
Thanks – we look forward to seeing your quilts! And if you want to preorder this book, click here.
