MSQC Birthday Bash!

Today I’m heading home after a wonderful weekend visiting Mr. Wonderful’s parents in Missouri. We did take a side trip to Hamilton. It just so happened that last week was the 8th birthday of the Missouri Star Quilt Company! I even got my picture with the duck!

And who is that behind me?

Why yes, it was Jenny Doan herself! And while I was totally star struck, hubby asked her for a photo. And she graciously agreed. I was rendered pretty much speechless. He talked to her more than I did! 

They had stars on the sidewalk highlighting sew-lebrities. 

At one point, while walking through town, hubby asks, quite loudly, “Isn’t your star down by the Penney’s store?” Such a kidder!  

Mr. Wonderful definitely got into the spirit of things! I think he had as much fun as I did. 

Many husbands took advantage of the man cave and park benches. Not my guy! He can shop the fat quarters like none other! See?

Yeah, they had 88 cent fat quarters the day we were there! I also got a new mug.

And a birthday bash t-shirt.

And some charm packs for good measure. 

It was such a fun day! Gotta love a guy that plans something like this! I think I’ll keep him. 

Have a great day!

  1. I think that duck is bi-racial. He’s got lobster hands.

    Oh my — that looks like it was so much fun! I haven’t been there, yet. It’s on my bucket list!

    Looks like you had a wonderful day – what fun that you were there for the birthday bash! Know how you feel about being “star struck” to meet Jennie – that’s how I felt when Marianne Fons called me on Quilts of Valor sew day. And, for the record, I think you deserve a star; you’re a quilting star in my book!
