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

Roadblock Quilt

Traffic jams can be caused by construction, accidents, or even a herd of cattle. (Wait…does that only happen in Missouri?) But did you know a tractor-driving sheepdog once created a terrible gridlock? So did a runaway robot, a massive Santa balloon, and a 42,000 pound honey spill! I must say, I prefer a Roadblock made of fabric!

Last Quilt of 2018 from Heart Desire Creations

Taking a break until 2019 is in order but I want to first share my final finish of 2019.  I had many 2 1/2 inch strips of Kaffe fabric. Some were from a design roll and some from another project.  Never have I ever done a Jelly Roll Race quilt so I thought that might be fun. However, after separating the light and darks, I decided on something a bit more dramatic.

Matching the diagonal strips was a bit challenging, but once I figured out the method, it wasn’t too bad. I really like the look and best ...

I May Have a Scrap Problem - Good Results! from Confessions of a Fabric Addict

Hi, all!

Wow, October just flew by in a flash, didn't it?  I love fall - cooler weather, my birthday, and the upcoming holidays - but it does seem like the fall months go by so much faster than summer!  It was a good month, though - I got a lot accomplished and I hope you did too.  

First up was Nathanael's annual quilt.  He loves green, so I dug in my green scraps and found lots of 2.5" squares, which turned into 16-patch blocks.


Then I made a bunch of X-blocks...


Pairing up the two sets of blocks, it ...

Retreat Quilt from Patchwork Sampler Blog

During a recent trip to the Twin Cities I saw a fun quilt hanging in a shop. It had the sentiment “She was a nice girl until she took up quilting.” At the time I didn’t think much about it, but then realized it would be a great quilt for my bed at retreat. I did a quick Google search which revealed it is from the book “Quilt Talk: Paper Pieced Alphabet with Symbols and Numbers.” Bummer, I avoid paper piecing if at all possible. I knew I wouldn’t make THAT quilt. It continued to be in the ...

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

Star Patch Quilt

What makes a sunset so special? I mean, every single night – just like clockwork – that same ‘ole sun sinks below the same ‘ole horizon. So why do we write poems and sing love songs and treasure every last drop of fading sunlight? It’s all in the details!

Star Patch Quilt

From the shape of the clouds to the moisture in the air, tiny variations work together to create a show of color and light as magnificent as it is unique! Orange and purple streaks. Dramatic rays of gold. Moody silver and navy blue.  You just never know what Mother Nature has up ...

Precut fabrics can be a lot of fun and a fast and easy way to add to your stash or make a gift. Jelly rolls in particular are great for beginner quilters or more experienced quilters looking for a quick project.

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 ...

Scrumptious Scraps Quilt-Along - Making The Most of Binding Scraps! from Confessions of a Fabric Addict

Hi, all!

Is there anything with more potential than a big pile of fabric scraps?  Most of us have them - some of us have way too many - and all those scraps are like free fabric.  They are left over from other projects and crying out to be used - and this year's quilt-along will give you six great ways to use them!  


As you may know from past years, I've been hosting a "quilt-along" in the six weeks before the Hands2Help Charity Quilt Challenge.  Now I call it a quilt-along, but it's not really that - for six weeks ...

Dream Weaver Quilt from The Cutting Table Quilt Blog - A Blog for Quilters by Quilters

Learn to make this pieced quilt that looks woven!

Children are born with an untamed sense of creativity. Give a child a box of crayons and you may end up with flying giraffes or polka-dot elephants. They don’t care how it’s “supposed” to look; they draw what they like.  But as we grow older, we start to worry about following the rules. For me, quilting is a wonderful way to get back to my creative roots. I love to take chances and try new colors and patterns.

Watch as Jenny shows you a neat technique for the Dream Weaver!

Today’s new quilt is a fun jelly roll pattern, and while Jenny uses a beautiful jelly roll for her ...

I May Have A Scrap Problem... Binding Wars! from Confessions of a Fabric Addict

Hi, all!

I have to confess that Wednesday snuck up on me this week - I was so proud of having an honest-to-God scrappy sewing success, I completely forgot to make my Gypsy Wife blocks this week!  Of course, working on Emmy's annual quilt was distracting me too, but I'm usually better at remembering than this.  Oh well - I'll try to get them done before Friday, and that will give me something to post about then!

In the meantime, I really did have a scrappy sewing success this week!  I quilted a vintage quilt top for a friend ...

DWM: Project Sew A Jelly Roll from Patchwork Sampler Blog

Saturday was National Sew A Jelly Roll Day and that’s exactly what I did. Currently,  I am obsessed with the triangle in a square block (tri-recs). The idea for this quilt has been floating around in my head for awhile so I finally grabbed a jelly roll and sewed strips together in sets of three. I then cut the strip sets with the center (larger) part of the tri-recs, cut some solid off-white with the recs part and made lots of blocks. Very quick and easy.

Now I’m in the tedious part—sewing the blocks together. The rows ...

Summer Camp Quilt from The Cutting Table Quilt Blog - A Blog for Quilters by Quilters

Summer Camp Quilt Tutorial from Missouri Star Quilt Co.

Many years ago, Jenny took her very first quilt class. Even though she was already an accomplished seamstress, quilting seemed a bit daunting. During that class, she learned how to make a log cabin. And when she realized how simple and versatile that little block can be, a fire was lit! Before the class finished, Jenny had completed 12 quilts – and she’s never stopped quilting!

Today’s new quilt is a fun variation of a log cabin quilt!

Has really been almost a year since my last post??? from Sue Daurio's Quilting Adventures

Oh boy, it has been a long time. Sure hope I remember how to do this!  So, what's been going on since June of 2016?  Sold the house, got a new one.  I started a new job.  Now we're all settled in the new job, settled in the new house and I *finally* got to break in the new sewing room.  Part of me loved the space at the old house so much that it was really hard to get started, but that's all behind me now.  Spending time in the new space was like catching up ...
