Hourglass Wreath Quilt from The Cutting Table Quilt Blog - A Blog for Quilters by Quilters

The Hourglass Wreath Quilt from Missouri Star Quilt Co. Watch the free quilt tutorial today.

Can you imagine enduring winter in ancient Scandinavia? No electricity. No furnace. No corner grocery store. Just weeks and weeks of darkness, cold, and scarcity. 

During the darkest part of winter, my own Swedish ancestors adorned evergreen wreaths with white candles to celebrate Yule, or midwinter. The evergreen boughs symbolized resilience in harsh conditions; the candles, hope for the warmth and light of spring.

Twins have a mysterious connection, even when it comes to quilting! 

In 1999, Lisa Norton decided to learn how to quilt, so she signed up for a Block of the Month program. By some strange coincidence, her identical twin Lora Zmak did the exact same thing—1,000 miles away!

Disappearing Four-Patch Weave Quilt from The Cutting Table Quilt Blog - A Blog for Quilters by Quilters

The Disappearing Four-Patch Weave Quilt from Missouri Star Quilt Co. Watch the free quilt tutorial today.

Spiders are master weavers. Their webs are made with silk “thread” that is the envy of quilters: 1,000x thinner than human hair and 5x stronger than steel! (Scientists think pencil-thick web could stop a jumbo jet!)  

They work at a dazzling pace, completing incredibly intricate webs in about an hour. But this week, Jenny is giving ‘em a run for their money!

The Disappearing Four-Patch Weave quilt starts as a super-simple 4-patch and then, like all disappearing blocks, we slice it and rearrange the pieces. The result is a gorgeous, woven layer cake pattern that comes together lickety-split. (Our ...

The Framed Pinwheels Quilt from Missouri Star Quilt Co. Watch the free quilt tutorial today.

The Framed Pinwheels quilt is a master of disguise. 

It looks like a tricky maze of itty bitty pieces, but don’t be deceived! This block is simply a disappearing nine patch!

Here’s how it works:  Whip up a nine patch of charms and lil’ pinwheels. Slice up that block. Shuffle the pieces. Stitch ‘em back together. That’s it! 

This pattern was inspired by the creative genius of V and Co, and we’re so excited to share it with you!

unicorn finish from Making A Lather

The unicorn quilt is finally done. I started this for my Granddaughter the fall of 2018. I didn't have a pattern, but, I had a panel and a layer cake. I prefer mindless sewing, so, I kept procrastinating. There is a certain amount of guilt that goes with procrastinating, and, that was the motivation to finally put my head down and get this done. And, it will be a good excuse to see my Grandchildren. It is about 70 x 80. I used a plain pink sheet for the back. I used a simple stipple with a few flowers ...

Hip To Be Square Pillow Tutorial from Samelia's Mum

I love layer cakes. I love those beautiful bundles of gorgeous 10" squares, all coordinated and stacked beautifully. I love that I can have a little piece of every fabric from a new designers range in a handy bundle.

Just Kisses Quilt from Quiltmanufaktur

Ein Layer Cake Zen Chic Moda / A Day in Paris und ein das Pattern Just Kisses von Janice Zeller Rayn / Better off Thread - eine ideale Kombination, um daraus einen schönen, frischen Quilt zu machen, oder?



Letztes Jahr bekam ich diesen wunderbaren Layer Cake von Penny und Isis geschenkt. Die beiden sind Stewardessen und wenn sie gerade in Frankfurt Stop gemacht hatten, haben sie mich ab-und-zu in der Quiltmanufaktur besucht.

Was macht man mit so schönen Stoffen? Sie lagen eine Weile immer in meiner Sichtweite und ich hatte nicht so recht die zündende Idee.... bis ich meinen Pinwand bei Pinterest durchforstet ...

unicorn quilt goal from Making A Lather

I have seen some great humor come out of the pandemic. It helps to laugh.


One of my one monthly goals for May, was to make headway on the unicorn quilt. I have not wanted to work on this at all. I don't have a pattern and have already demonstrated my lack of math skills in figuring the piecing. I measure, and measure, and calculate, and cut, what I need. And... it doesn't fit.
I have most of the blocks done I think. I am using a layer cake and a panel. I am using a background white ...

Warm in the winter from Celtic Thistle Stitches

At this time of year nothing beats starting the day with a warming bowl of porridge, but getting that hot bowl from microwave to table has always been a juggling act of tea towels or oven mitts to avoid scorched fingers.



No longer!

I decided that my first make of the year would be just for me and as I had been looking at the bowl cosy patterns proliferating the Internet I knew just what that make would be :)

As I don't always use the same bowl for breakfast I made two bowl cosies, the bottom one is made ...

Origami – Layer Cake Quilt Pattern: Kate Spain version from Blossom Heart Quilts

My latest pattern, Origami, is just perfect for layer cakes! Especially the small bed sized quilt – it has 42 blocks, which is the exact same number as pieces in a Moda layer cake. And I had one of those lying around – Voyager by Kate Spain. So I added in a couple of fat quarters of coordinating solids for the folded corners, and off I went!

Layer cake quilt pattern

I really can’t emphasise how quick a pattern this is to make, especially when using a layer cake. Stack and whack, baby, stack and whack! What that means is that I had 3-4 pieces ...

The Quilting Has Begun!! from Quilting through Rose-colored Trifocals!

The quilting of my scrappy blue hexagons quilt has begun!!
Found the perfect thread in my stash and revved up my APQS George for the first time all summer!?!
  I'm keeping to a simple grid that follows the ditch of the seams and crosses through the center of each hexagon.  
I've used this approach before and like the simplicity, the sturdiness and the effect.
I can come and go from the stitching over the next few days and hopefully be binding this sweet little quilt next week!!
After a record fast trip to eastern Pennsylvania to watch my ...
