Happy National Quilting Month! Who better to kick off this fun month, than Jenny Doan from Missouri Star Quilt Company! If you are not familiar with Jenny and her awesome video tutorials, then you better subscribe to her YouTube channel for tons of quilting fun!
In 2008, the Doan children began a start up business, The Missouri Star Quilt Company, and it quickly became popular for their selection of pre-cut fabric. Jenny began posting instructional quilting videos on YouTube after her son, Alan realized the lack of quilting help on the internet. These easy-to-follow videos were a hit among the growing quilting community, and a quilting sensation was born. Fast forward, the Missouri Star Quilt Company YouTube channel has over 377,500 subscribers and more than 100,000,000 views!
