Dakota Sunrise Quilt from The Cutting Table Quilt Blog - A Blog for Quilters by Quilters

Dakota Sunrise Quilt

Designer Tula Pink knows a thing or two about color. Her solids are delicious shades of “limeade” “persimmon” and “hibiscus.” Best of all? She chose a gorgeously bold fuchsia and named it after herself, Tula Pink! (Now I’m wondering…what color would I pick for my own name?)

Click HERE to watch Jenny use Tula’s solids in the quick and easy Dakota Sunrise quilt. This one’s a stunner, and it’s so fun to make!

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.

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

English primrose brightens even the grayest winter day. Pansies add a splash of color against the pure white snow. But my favorite blooms of all are found on Jenny’s new Flower Glass quilt. These simple petals and hourglass blocks will keep you cozy all winter long!

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!

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

Elephant and Donkey Quilts

Pixel quilting is all the rage, but it’s really not a new technique. In 1931, the Kansas City Star published a mosaic elephant pattern as a tribute to a beloved elephant at the local zoo.

Elephant and Donkey Quilts

The next year, a companion quilt was released. This one featured a pixelated donkey named Giddap. Both are cute as can be, and so easy to put together!

Four Corners Quilt from The Cutting Table Quilt Blog - A Blog for Quilters by Quilters

Four Corners Quilt

Take a peek at a U.S. map, and you’ll notice that Utah, Colorado, Arizona, and New Mexico are laid out like a giant four patch with perfectly nested seams and lovely 90-degree angles. The Four Corners Monument marks the spot where they all come together. It’s the only place in the country where you can stand in one spot and be in 4 states at once!

This week Jenny is working on a Four Corners quilt. Each block brings together 4 pretty corners with a cute little “monument” in the middle.

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

Star Crossed Quilt

Spoiler alert! Romeo and Juliet were doomed from the start. It’s right there in the 6th line of the play: “Warning! They’re totally gonna die. Everything ends in a giant ball of disaster.” (I’m paraphrasing, but you get the gist.) Those star-crossed lovers never had a chance!

Candy Twist Quilt and Bonus Table Runner from The Cutting Table Quilt Blog - A Blog for Quilters by Quilters

Candy Twist Quilt Tutorial from Missouri Star Quilt Co.

One hundred years ago, Halloween was more about tricks than treats. Instead of trekking door to door to collect candy, kids spent the evening pulling pranks on their neighbors. A little doorbell ditching here, a little property damage there. Frankly, I say bring on the sweets!

Everything is more fun with candy – even quilts! This week Jenny is stitching up a delicious Candy Twist Quilt.

Fortunate Impromptu Shop Hop from Bonnie's Girl



Since Wednesday I have managed to visit 5 different quilt shops without leaving the state, participating in a planned shop hop, or even traveling on a bus tour.  Wednesday, I traveled from my little town to nearby Hannibal, Missouri--yes, Mark Twain's hometown--and spent a few minutes in both of the quilt stores in historic downtown.  Both Bits and Pieces and The Hickory Stick are nestled in the midst of the Mark Twain Museum and surrounding shops and carry a fine array of the best fabrics and patterns.

 Last night, a friend and I went to the northwest corner of ...

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!

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

Star Patch Quilt
