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!

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 ...

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!

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

Summer School Quilt

From rice-sized gobies to whale sharks as long as two school buses, the ocean is filled with an incredible variety of creatures.  Some travel in schools of up to 3 billion fish. Some “walk” on land. Some live for centuries.

Summer School Quilt

But of all the fish in the sea, my very favorites are created with needle and thread. In this week’s new tutorial, Jenny demonstrates how to whip up a sea full of pretty fishes in every color of the rainbow. Click HERE to watch the tutorial!

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?

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

Slanted Half Hex

During the golden age of cinema, you’d never catch a leading man without his fedora in place. Frank Sinatra, Bing Crosby, and even Mr. Dreamboat himself, Gene Kelly. They all wore hats, and always with a dapper little tilt.

Slanted Half Hex

A perfectly positioned angle adds so much charm – even to quilts! Click HERE to learn how to use our Large Half Hexi Template to transform 10-inch squares into a beautiful Slanted Half Hex Quilt!

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?

Half and Half Quilt

Today’s new quilt came to life when Jenny found out what happens if HALF square triangles are cut in HALF. Click HERE to learn how to make the Half and Half quilt!

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

Nine Patch Madness Quilt

Have you heard? Hamilton is covered in ice. Literally! The streets are slick as a hockey rink, and the windows are obscured by a thick layer of wavy ice. I can’t get into my car because the doors are sealed shut, but even if I could, I’m sure I’d just slide my way into a ditch!

Nine Patch Madness Quilt

No one wishes for freezing rain, but when it comes, we hunker down and try to stay toasty under a mountain of sewing projects. This week Jenny is stitching up a new disappearing block. It’s a simple 9-patch with a ...
