Last month, the Missouri Star Quilt Company and Jenny Doan celebrated their 11th year in business with an enormous Birthday Bash weekend! It was a grand party with lots of festivities, special guest teachers, stitchin’, eatin’ and dancin’ galore and lots and lots of quilters gathering together for a weekend of fun in Hamilton, MO with Jenny and everyone at MSQC.
This year’s theme was an Hawaiian Luau theme and appropriately titled the “Aloha 11th Birthday Bash” celebration.
Although Carl and I were not there – our ModTiki pattern was. Our happy little fella had been selected as the weekend’s thematic pattern for members of MSQC to make their own tiki which would then be displayed in shops and on the main street during the birthday bash weekend! What a thrill and Carl and I couldn’t have been more proud of their creations. Each one was lovingly made by quilters and non-quilters from MSQC, and each person who made one was asked to personalize the tiki in whatever way he/she wished. Here’s a brief slideshow of the many tikis that were posted around town !!
Barb and Mary of Me & My Sisters Designs who were guest teachers also made their own personalized version below – love the dresden petal skirts and the flip flops.
And here’s Jenny’s version – can you guess who this might be? Yes – a self portrait of her and her husband, Ron!
All in all, a very fun time was had by all and we thank Jenny and everyone at MSQC for choosing to use our ModTiki pattern to celebrate their 11th birthday bash in style. Sending kisses and a giant MAHALO to you all!
If you’d like to make your own version of our ModTiki – you can purchase the pattern right here in our Colourwerx shop! We would love to see what you come up with!
Mahalo my friends and until your next colour fix~ L&C xxoo
