Herringbone – Easy Strip Pieced Pattern from Simple Quilts for the Modern Home from Quilt Addicts Anonymous

Learn how to make Herringbone, from my first book, “Simple Quilts for the Modern Home.”

Herringbone is one of my favorite quilts in the book because it is a very easy quilt pattern but it looks a lot more complicated than it actually is. The top is made almost entirely by strip piecing, so it also goes really fast.

In this video I show you how to cut corners out of your strips so you can piece them in an offset way to maximize the use of your fabric. We also talk about how to sew the offset strip sets ...

If you have been thinking about starting to sew, or learn how to make a quilt, then you may want to start investing in a good machine.

Christmas Tree Quilt

Christmastime is full of magic, even for quilters! Don’t believe me? Watch as Jenny transforms a simple pack of green 10-inch squares into TWO gorgeous Christmas tree quilts! If that’s not magic, I don’t know what is!

Strings Attached Quilt from The Cutting Table Quilt Blog - A Blog for Quilters by Quilters

Strings Attached Quilt

Chevrons have been a hot trend for a long time. (A really, really long time.) Jenny stitched up THIS version in 2015, and THIS one in 2012, but it goes back much further than that! Chevron motifs have been found on 4,000-year-old pottery and rock carvings – and, honestly, they’ve been cool ever since!

Strings Attached Quilt

The Strings Attached quilt is made quick and easy with the 10” Rhombus Template, but it’s the vertical sashing that really sets this pattern apart! Click HERE to watch the tutorial!

Detail of Circuit Board quilt by Sylvia Schaefer/Flying Parrot Quilts | www.flyingparrotquilts.com

This quilt was made with a bright green solid for the traces and vias (those are the actual names for the lines and circles on circuit boards!), and a scrappy black background. As I was piecing this quilt, I realized that the prints in the fabric actually reflect many of the things I do ...
