Winter Village Block of the Month Quilt from The Cutting Table Quilt Blog - A Blog for Quilters by Quilters

Winter Village Block of the Month Quilt

A bear spends the winter months snuggled deep inside his cozy den. He snores away the chilly days with not a care in the world. I must admit, I do the same, but instead of sleep, I quilt! This year, I’ll be working on a charming new Block of the Month by Edyta Sitar.

Winter Wall Hanging from The Cutting Table Quilt Blog - A Blog for Quilters by Quilters

Winter Wall Hanging

Decking the halls is delightful; putting it all away after Christmas is the pits. But..what if your holiday decor could stretch all the way through winter? I’m here to say, it totally can! Jenny’s Winter Wall Hanging is festive enough for Christmas, but you can leave it up all the way to spring!  

Winter Wall Hanging

This cheery project combines several fun-to-make elements: easy present blocks, little wonky stars, a simple evergreen tree, and a pair of fuzzy-bearded gnomes that will look as stylish in February as they do on December 25th!

Basket of Blooms Quilt from The Cutting Table Quilt Blog - A Blog for Quilters by Quilters

Basket of Blooms Quilt

When you give the gift of flowers, you’re sending a message – so choose carefully!  

Sunflowers symbolize friendship, red roses represent romantic love, and bells of Ireland spread good luck. But a potful of petunias or orange lilies? Well, they pretty much say, “I hate your stinkin’ guts.”

Basket of Blooms Quilt

This week Jenny is stitching up a wonderful bouquet of fabric flowers, and you don’t have to worry! The gift of a quilt practically shouts, “Love ya!” Click HERE to watch the tutorial!

How to Quilt Crazy Matrix from The Free Motion Quilting Project

Just three more walking foot quilting designs to go and I added a bit of longarm quilting on top. It's a bit like icing on the cake, but better!

I really love quilting designs two radically different ways. It's really important to understand that there isn't a perfect type of quilting out there. There are always limitations to what you can do easily and how much control you have over the ...

Sidekick Quilt Tutorial from The Cutting Table Quilt Blog - A Blog for Quilters by Quilters

Sidekick Quilt

All the quilts of my childhood had solid backs. Some pink, some red, some navy blue – all plain as plain. For years, it felt like the back of the quilt didn’t really matter at all. But when I started to notice pretty florals, sassy stripes, and exciting colors, I started seeing quilt backing as one more opportunity to let my creativity shine!

Sidekick Quilt

This week’s new project, the Sidekick Quilt, is a quick and easy pattern based on the friendship star. It’s cute and colorful, but just wait ‘til you see the backing fabric!  It’s bold, fabulous ...

Keyhole Quilt from The Cutting Table Quilt Blog - A Blog for Quilters by Quilters

Keyhole Quilt

The first time I bought a car that locked with a keychain remote, I felt pretty special. That is, until that newfangled remote stopped working.

But after an accidental trip through the washer and dryer, my key fob came back to life, locking and unlocking the car doors again and again. Lock. Unlock. Lock. Unlock. Finally, I was forced to remove the batteries.

Keyhole Quilt

I learned a lesson that day. Sometimes simple is best. Who needs a fancy remote when an old-fashioned key and keyhole will get the job done right every time?

The Keyhole Quilt is as simple as it ...

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

Stars and Stripes Quilt

How patriotic are you? Do you plant your petunias in bold stripes of red, white, and blue? Does your doorbell chime to the tune of Yankee Doodle? Is your station wagon decked out like a 4th of July parade float all year long?

Stars and Stripes Quilt

This week we’re paying tribute to Old Glory with a beautiful patriotic quilt. Stars and Stripes is a quick strip project that was inspired by the beautiful “United” Tonga Batiks by Timeless Treasures. Click HERE to watch the tutorial!

Half and Half Quilt from The Cutting Table Quilt Blog - A Blog for Quilters by Quilters

Half and Half Quilt

When Jenny is designing a new quilt, she always asks herself, “What happens if…?”

Half and Half Quilt

What happens if she rotates every other block? What happens if she snowballs two corners? What happens if she uses solids instead of prints?

Jitterbug Quilt Tutorial from The Cutting Table Quilt Blog - A Blog for Quilters by Quilters

Learn to make this fun Jitterbug Quilt!

The Jitterbug was one of the most popular dances of the swing era, but how did it get such a funny name? Turns out “jitterbug” is just a combo of two cute little words: jitter and bug. But put ‘em together and you’ve got a name worth remembering!

Learn to make this Jitterbug Quilt with Jenny!

This week we’re working on the Jitterbug Quilt. And, like it’s namesake, it’s based on two simple little elements: the 4-patch and the half-square triangle. Combine those quilting powerhouses with an extra dose of creativity, and you’ve got a quilt as swanky as the swingingest jitterbug on ...

Supernova Quilt ~ Block Three and Beyond from Curlicue Creations

 This is Block Three for the Supernova quilt.  I love it!  The drama of the bright batiks mixed with the black really packs a punch.

 I sewed four Block Three's for the Supernova quilt.

Here are all of the blocks sewn together.  Just lovely.  See how the light eminates from the center of the quilt?  It really draws the eye, and even though this quilt is a riot of bright colors, when I meditate on it, I get a calm, peaceful, happy feeling.  Do you feel it?

I'm currently working on the borders, and the quilting shall begin ...
