Across the Wide Missouri

# 18256
"Lonesome miner wants wife to share stake and prospects. Please respond to Louis Dreibelbis in Grass Valley, California. –San Franciso Magazine, April 12, 1873" So reads the ad 22-year-old Eleanor Berry of Gilroy, California, responded to in a respected literary journal. Little did Eleanor know that Mr. Dreibelbis wasn’t who he said he was. This is just one of 12 stories honoring the courageous women who left their mothers and fathers, sisters and brothers behind to go West. Their stories are sometimes tragic and sometimes funny. Even though they never knew one another, they had one thing in common - uncommon courage. The featured quilt of the book - the Star's 2010 block-of-the-month project - is offered in two different colorways - Jan's version and Edie's version. Also, as you delve into the book, you’ll find quick and easy projects honoring the pioneer spirit. The church was the community gathering place for families on the frontier and Jan reminds us of that with her Church Bells in the Snow wall hanging. The 9-block Gone Fishing quilt reflects the importance of nature’s offerings for the hardy pioneers who made their way West. Whether you make the featured quilt, your favorite block or one of the projects, you will be reminded of the incredible pioneer spirit and bravery shown by the intrepid women who stepped into the unknown and made history .

My Stars II

# 18903
Regular Price $24.95
My Stars II: Patterns from The Kansas City Star, Volume II
In April 2009, Kansas City Star Quilts published My Stars: Patterns from The Kansas City Star, Volume I to much success. We decided to make this a series, so eventually all of the historical Kansas City Star patterns will be redrafted and published by the same company that printed them decades ago. In Volume I, we asked you, our readers and quilters, to submit their quilts that matched the patterns offered in the book. We loved receiving all of the photos and getting to see the beautiful work that you have accomplished. The photos that were chosen – we wish we could have included them all – really enhanced the project. So we decided to repeat the process for Volume II. We received even more submissions this second time around, and wow, what a great selection of quilts. We had so much trouble choosing! Because of that, we have increased the number of photos in the book – seven of the 25 patterns will include a photograph of a quilt by a fellow quilter friend. My Stars II includes 25 more patterns that were offered to My Star Collection subscribers, a program that provides a web download of a redrafted pattern each week. Each pattern in the book includes fabric requirements, templates and assembly instructions, as well as the original caption that was printed in the newspaper. So whether you plan to stitch these famous old blocks or are a collector, sit back and enjoy the heritage of quilting. And clear a spot on your shelf, because eventually Kansas City Star Quilts will chronicle them all.This is only the second of many more to come.
