Mother’s Choice Remake Quilt from The Cutting Table Quilt Blog - A Blog for Quilters by Quilters

The Mother's Choice Remake quilt from Missouri Star Quilt Co.

Jenny is a rescuer of old, antique blocks. 

She sifts through stacks of orphan blocks at yard sales and antique shops, imagining the quilters who started – but never finished – so many years ago.

When Jenny spotted a long-forgotten Mother’s Choice block, she fell in love! And then…she used a sprinkling of Missouri Star magic to make that pattern new again!

The Mother's Choice Remake quilt from Missouri Star Quilt Co.

Mother’s Choice Remake is a beautiful, simplified version of the old-fashioned Mother’s Choice. This pretty jelly roll quilt is made easy with half-square triangles, flying geese, snowballed corners, and – best of all – zero Y-seams!

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

Summer Squares Quilt for the Missouri Star Quilt Company.

In winter, quilts are for snuggling. We wrap them ‘round our shoulders like thick, cozy cocoons and pile them on our beds to stay toasty through the night.

But in summertime … those quilts take on a whole new life!

Jenny Doan and the Summer Squares quilt by the Missouri Star Quilt Company.

We carry them to picnics and t-ball games. We spread them out for fireworks and parades. They join us on camping trips and days at the beach. Summer is adventure time for quilts! 

This week Jenny is working on a brand new Summer Squares quilt. It’s a pretty jelly roll pattern based on one of our all-time favorites, Summer in ...

In het verdomhoekje.... from Quilts Van Kippetje en Meer

Deze quilt is al heel lang gepatched.... maar het quilten duurt heel lang.



 Logisch als je het quilten maar uitstelt. Het ligt al tijden in een kast in een ( verdom)hoekje. En dat komt simpelweg omdat ik eerst een grote klus moet doen voordat ik kleine klusjes kan afmaken. 



Omdat je met het quilten vanuit het midden moet werken kan ik niet om het grote zwarte vlak boven in heen. Dat is nu eerst aan de beurt maar ik vind het best wel tricky om dat grote vlak in te vullen. Hier gebruik ik weliswaar een goede lange quilt liniaal ...

boxy star finish from Making A Lather

 I am happy to report I have the quilt  done for boxy stars in yellow and black. I started this in 2016 to use a jelly roll.  I have worked on it as part of the rainbow scrap challenge this year. February's color is yellow. This is an older UFO that would not make it into the top 10 quilts I want to finish, but, still needs some attention. It is good to clean out some of these types of UFOs. I started the month with the blocks already made, and I needed to assemble the top and quilt ...

Free Saguaro Cactus Quilt Pattern from Craft Gossip

Are you ready to make a stunning and unique quilt?  Just take a look at this wonderful cactus pattern from Kairle Oaks.  It is so striking, and the best part is that it is not too hard to make.

Besides the solid background, it’s a scrappy quilt.  I don’t know about you, but they are my absolute favorite kind of quilt to make.  One perk of this pattern is that the green squares measure 2 1/2″, making this an ideal pattern for any jelly rolls you may have.

Each unfinished block measures 12 1/2″ x 20 ...

Solar Flare Quilt from The Cutting Table Quilt Blog - A Blog for Quilters by Quilters

Solar Flare quilt by Missouri Star Quilt Company.

In old-timey movies, the wealthy are surrounded by teetering stacks of gold coins. So, my little-kid self believed that’s what riches were. 

A “few” decades later, I find myself surrounded instead with stacks of fabric. And in my book…that’s even better! 

Solar Flare quilt by Missouri Star Quilt Company.

This week Jenny is whipping up a classic coin quilt with a fun new twist. First, she makes traditional coin stacks out of jelly roll strip sets. Then, she uses the Missouri Star Circle Magic template to add a sprinkling of easy applique circles. The end result is a totally new pattern that is truly out-of-this-world ...

Jelly Roll Quilt – Free Beginner Pattern from Craft Gossip

If you are looking for an easy beginner-level quilt pattern then this one from Melanie Ham is for you.  It’s about as easy as it gets, so it’s ideal for first-time quilters.

We quilters usually have a jelly roll sitting around just waiting to be used.  I know I see them in my local quilt shop, have grand ideas about what I am going to make with it, and then buy it.  Unfortunately, after that, the roll goes into my pile of UFOs.  I think I have three of them right now, just begging to be sewn into ...

Star Watch: a Christmas quilt featuring Hearthside Holiday from Carried Away Quilting

Hello quilting friends! Last October I shared sneak peek photos of another winter quilt I was working on, a Christmas version of my Star Watch pattern featuring fabrics by Deb Strain (Moda). This festive quilt is now complete, and yesterday I took several photos to share with you.


My daughter was home this weekend and commented that she hoped this quilt was for her, as she really loved the striking black and red, the buffalo checks and plaids, and the deer head motif. The traditional holiday elements have a slightly contemporary feeling thanks to that color combination, we decided. Sadly ...

Free Caribbean Sunset Quilt Pattern from Craft Gossip

One can’t help but think of warm tropical breezes when looking at this quilt designed by Ellie Brown for McCall’s Quilting magazine.  The colors she used in her version are just like an exotic island and with it’s combination of circles and stripes, it is an eye catching pattern.

The finished quilt measures 80.5″ x 90.5″ so it’s a perfect queen size.  Even better, the pattern is suitable for beginners so anyone can do this.  It is a good scrap busting quilt because it incorporates many strips in various colors and each circle is ...

jelly roll finish from Making A Lather

I have a finish for my January one monthly goal at elm street quilts. This is an older ufo ( 2013) made from a jelly roll and free pattern by cindy carter.

76 x 76

12 yards of fabric


I really liked the border with the rest of the quilt. I quilted simple circle loops in a light gray thread. I machine sewed the binding. I needed to open a new roll of hobbs 80/20 batting. I noticed it was not the same as other bolts. I wonder if there was a change in the manufacture. It seemed thinner and ...

Free Summer Love Quilt Pattern from Craft Gossip

Even though the title of this quilt pattern from Quilting in the Rain is “Summer Love”, I think it would be perfect for Valentine’s Day.  It’s such a happy quilt.

Made with two jelly rolls and backing fabric, it is an easy quilt to put together.  Jelly roll quilts are always fun to make, and you can save so much time because the pieces are already cut.  I wish everything was that easy.

I like the colors that the designer used for her quilt.  They are bright and cheerful.  The border adds a nice finishing touch to the ...

The Blues. New Fabric, New Quilt from Patchwork Sampler Blog

Every time I see a new line of fabric, I want to make a new quilt. There’s just something about cutting into pretty, fresh fabric that makes me giddy! This particular line is Janet Clare’s “The Blues” from Moda. I like all her fabrics, but this one is particularly nice because it is BLUE. The prints feature an understated musical theme with staves, crotchets, notes and such.

When using precuts, I typically make a quick and easy quilt to use it up. Villa Rosa pattern cards are perfect for that. I had a jelly roll with some yardage ...

Building Blocks: All About Precut Fabric from The Cutting Table Quilt Blog - A Blog for Quilters by Quilters

Precut fabric saves time and effort when creating quilting projects.

Precut fabric revolutionized the quilting world. The quilting skill was historically passed down through teaching – one would learn the intricate and mathematical approach of measuring and cutting fabric by hand from the generation that came before. Anyone who has pieced a quilt knows it’s difficult work! Before you could even consider your project or layout, all the fabrics must be cut from bolts or repurposed from used materials. The margin for error was extraordinary, a single miscalculation could jeopardize an entire quilting project.

Quilting is now easier and more ...

Irish Chain Quilt - Tutorial from Quiltmanufaktur

Dieses Jahr fiel es mir erstaunlich schwer, mich mit der Weihnachts Dekokration für den Laden zu beschäftigen. Die rechte Stimmung will einfach nicht aufkommen. Geht euch das auch so? Was ein Glück gibt es Pinterest! Ich bin ja begeisterte Sammlerin von Pins mit Quiltmustern, die ich einfach schön finde oder mal irgendwann sogar machen will. Auf der Suche nach einen passenden Quilt bin ich dort auf das klassische Muster Irish Chain gestoßen; nicht kompliziertes, aber schön anzuschauen!

Als ich den Quilt während seiner Entstehung und dann auch fertig auf Instagram gezeigt habe, wurde ich gefragt, ob es dafür vielleicht eine ...
