Missouri Star Quilt Co. & Me (WHAT!)
Oh look, there’s the cover of Missouri Star Quilt Co.’s latest edition of Mod Block magazine. Better yet, it’s all about one of my favourite things, colour! Now check out that turquoise bar on the left. Mmmhmm, that’s my name! When MSQC contacted me last June–the week before my Today Show appearance nonetheless–I had a bit of a fanboy moment, not even gonna lie. My first thought was, “Have they got the right Molli Sparkles?” Um, yeah, that seriously was my first reaction. So after Mr. Sparkles slapped the silly out of me (he’s a die hard Jenny Doan fan, for reals) I basically responded via an email that said something like, “Shit yeah! I love Jennnnn-naaay!!!” Way to play it cool.
Thankfully, the team at MSQC understood my own brand of crazy, and it was exactly what they were looking for. So on one of the many flights to Japan I took last year, I began to write an article about colour tone. It slowly evolved into the satirical, yet informative piece in the magazine called, Watch Your Tone. You can read all about my smart alec mouth, colour inspiration, and how to use tone in your own quilts.
There’s also ten modern quilting projects featured that anyone could successfully complete. I’m considering a few of them for some fat quarter bundles I have stored up. You can get your own copy from the MSQC Shop for like six dollars in print or digital (great for international readers!) I am telling you now, my article alone is worth that much! Gurl, you know its true! I hope this is the beginning of a long working relationship with MSQC, because it is time for me to spice up their life with some severe sparkle!
P.s. Happy Valentine’s Day to you! Love yourself silly!
