Framed Pinwheels Quilt from The Cutting Table Quilt Blog - A Blog for Quilters by Quilters

The Framed Pinwheels Quilt from Missouri Star Quilt Co. Watch the free quilt tutorial today.

The Framed Pinwheels quilt is a master of disguise. 

It looks like a tricky maze of itty bitty pieces, but don’t be deceived! This block is simply a disappearing nine patch!

Here’s how it works:  Whip up a nine patch of charms and lil’ pinwheels. Slice up that block. Shuffle the pieces. Stitch ‘em back together. That’s it! 

This pattern was inspired by the creative genius of V and Co, and we’re so excited to share it with you!

A patriotic Picking Petals by Sweet Treasures Quilts from Carried Away Quilting


Please excuse the horn tootin’ going on over here, but I’m quite proud of my pattern Picking Petals. This was one of the first patterns I released when my business was new, and over the years she’s been stitched up by thousands of quilters in a variety of colorways and themes. It’s a quick little quilt to sew, and the results are always lovely. Recently the folks at Sweet Treasures Quilts sewed up a patriotic version, which is sophisticated and striking!

A sunny Flower Tile quilt block from Carried Away Quilting


Last night I was feeling blue. I was missing my quilting buddies and reminiscing about the fun we have when we sew together . . . giggling, talking, snacking, creating. For a moment, I considered throwing myself on the couch and binge watching Netflix. But instead, I picked up my chin and sought refuge in the sewing room. I’m so glad I did, because by the end of the evening I had cheered myself considerably by making this happy block!


Do you remember my Flower Tile pattern? I released it in 2018 and it has always been a personal favorite of mine ...

Warm in the winter from Celtic Thistle Stitches

At this time of year nothing beats starting the day with a warming bowl of porridge, but getting that hot bowl from microwave to table has always been a juggling act of tea towels or oven mitts to avoid scorched fingers.



No longer!

I decided that my first make of the year would be just for me and as I had been looking at the bowl cosy patterns proliferating the Internet I knew just what that make would be :)

As I don't always use the same bowl for breakfast I made two bowl cosies, the bottom one is made ...

Maple Leaf Blocks from Jan's Quilts



These are for my Modern Quilt Guilds' Block of the Month Charity Quilt project.  Each month a different member chooses a block to present.  Once enough blocks are collected, we assemble them into large lap-size quilts to donate to a local charity. 

This month's tutorial can be found here.  Rather than use yardage, I had this great Charm Pack that I thought would work perfectly.  I had to improvise a bit, but I think the Maple Leaves turned out great.

May your bobbins always be full,

Making a Patchwork Drawstring Bag from Sew Paint It

I made a drawstring bag out of patchwork for my daughter.  She loves everything that is cute.
The fabric was a charm pack from Riley Blake called Snapshots.  A charm pack is a number, in this case 32, of coordinating fabrics in squares which are 5" x 5".  I cut them into quarters giving me 4 squares of each fabric which were 2.5".  I then arranged them and sewed them together to make 6 squares wide and 7 squares high.





I then quilted it with a pink fabric on the reverse and quilted 0.25" from each side of ...
