All Stars Quilt from The Cutting Table Quilt Blog - A Blog for Quilters by Quilters

All Stars Quilt

There’s a pretty big football game this week. Best of the season, they say. And while I do enjoy a touchdown or two, those yards of turf just can’t compare to a yard of brand new quilting fabric! So while those football stars are racing to the endzone, I’ll be stitchin’ up a team of my own all stars!

All Stars Quilt

The All Stars quilt is based on a design by Jenny’s cute husband, Ron. It’s a quick, modern pattern that makes use of two of our favorite precuts: 10 inch squares and 2.5 inch strips.

Say Hello to the Little One! from Sew Preeti Quilts

I am listening to Eragon by Christopher Paolini.
The dragon is Saphira, the rider is Eragon. Saphira's name for Eragon - Little One.

Finished Flimsy
I have a finish to share. Finishing at just 37.5" square, it is one of the smaller baby quilts I have made.  Hence the name - The Little One.

3" squares of Kaffe Fassett fabric

Made with 3" Kaffe Fassett Squares, some left over from Clay's Quilt and others cut up from 6" Design Strips.

There is no story in the flimsy. At least, not yet.  The backing on the other ...

Jenny’s Doll Quilt from The Cutting Table Quilt Blog - A Blog for Quilters by Quilters

Jenny's Doll Quilt

Most of us can recall a special quilt or two from childhood. A cherished baby blanket. The bedspread of your grandmother’s sleepover bed. A favorite camp quilt or picnic blanket.

Jenny's Doll Quilt

And you know what? I bet if you sift through your memories, you can even remember a print or two of patchwork, the smell of the fabric, and the softness of a well worn binding. Because the truth is, when you make a quilt for a child, you are making memories.

Daisy Chain Quilt from The Cutting Table Quilt Blog - A Blog for Quilters by Quilters

Daisy Chain Quilt

I always thought the daisy was such a sweet and simple flower, but it turns out I was wrong! The daisy isn’t a flower at all; it’s two flowers! The first flower is made up of the long, white petals we love to pluck while reciting, “He loves me. He loves me not.” The second flower is the cheery yellow center. I guess you could say every bloom is its own bouquet!

Daisy Chain Quilt

In this week’s new tutorial, Jenny combines simple white charms with a pretty roll of 2.5 inch strips, and the results are as ...

The Quilt of Pi from Sew Preeti Quilts

Ever since I got into quilting, finding time to read has been difficult.  When I am not working or running errands, I am mostly sewing and by the time I get to bed, I can barely keep my eyes open.  Therefore the discovery of audiobooks has been an absolute joy.  I can listen while I sew!!!

It is a finish

My last audiobook was "Life of Pi" by Yann Martel.  It is a fantastic book and I loved every word of it. Here is my favorite quote from the book.

"Hindus, in their capacity for love, are indeed hairless Christians ...

Treasure Box Quilt from The Cutting Table Quilt Blog - A Blog for Quilters by Quilters

Treasure Box Quilt

Australia is famous for its many national treasures: The Great Barrier Reef. The Sydney Opera House.  Koalas and kangaroos. And, of course, the ridiculously attractive Hugh Jackman. You may not know, however, that Australia is also home to some of the best quilters in the world!

Treasure Box Quilt

On a recent trip to Australia, Jenny picked up this pretty new quilt pattern from a local quilter. (What a souvenir!) Click HERE to learn how to turn your half square triangles into a “treasure” from the Land Down Under!

North Star Quilt from The Cutting Table Quilt Blog - A Blog for Quilters by Quilters

North Star Quilt

The North Star is fixed in the heavens directly about the North Pole. While every other star is on a perpetual journey across the sky, the North Star holds its place with perfection. Centuries before the advent of location technology, sailors, travelers, and escaped slaves depended on that steadfast star to guide the way.

This week’s new project is the North Star. Click HERE to fall in love with a quilt as timeless as the star itself!

Vintage Soul and NTT from My Quilt Infatuation

Welcome to another Needle and Thread Thursday, y'all!  Today, I get to share a new quilt finish with you, and it is already right at home in my living room, getting lots of use.



Anna Maria Horner fabrics are so rich with color and print, and yet, they have such a lovely vintage vibe, so I've decided to call this one Vintage Soul.  With strips finishing at just two inches wide, many of the larger prints get lost, but I don't care.  I am in love with the way the colors move across the quilt.


I did ...

Scrap Strips and NTT from My Quilt Infatuation

Happy Needle and Thread Thursday, friends!  I'm still working away at busting through my 35 yards of Anna Maria Horner fabrics, and it's really getting down to the nitty gritty.  After my king sized quilt, and the backing of the quilt, I was left with lots of strips.  I cut them to a uniform 2.5" x 12.5" and put together in this fun quilt top.


I love the way the light and dark colors move your eye across the quilt.  Even when the quilt is in indoor light, it kind of looks like sunlight is scattered ...

King Sized Difficulty and NTT from My Quilt Infatuation

In case there was any doubt, every step in the process of making a king-sized quilt is more difficult, right down to photographing it.  Add a little wind in there, and getting a nice, smooth shot of this massive (108" x108") quilt top was next to impossible.  That being said, I love love LOVE it!


Since this quilt is going on my bed, I had to take the opinions of Mr. MQI into account, which usually doesn't happen with quilt design.  Finding a pattern that kept the larger prints intact and wasn't too fussy was key.  Just in ...

Non-secret sewing! Something for me (or rather, the cat…) from Dimple Stitch

Hurrah! I’ve found something else I can show you which isn’t top secret!

Firstly, a little update on the chickens. The line-up has changed somewhat over recent months, we lost Priscilla (to a tumour) and Betty (fox) within a few weeks of another, which was really upsetting (softie over here shed a few tears…) and meant we were down to just two. It probably would have stayed that way – they were confined to their coop much more often due to fox-paranoia, and I didn’t want to cram more in and overcrowd them. However, a couple of weeks ...
