Fancy Flight Quilt from The Cutting Table Quilt Blog - A Blog for Quilters by Quilters

What do quilters dream of? Flying geese with perfectly sharp points, of course! But sometimes those points get lost in the seam allowance, leaving your little geese tragically beakless. What’s a quilter to do?

In this week’s new tutorial, Jenny demonstrates how to preserve those points with one simple tip.

Psst!! This quilt will be featured in the upcoming issue of BLOCK Magazine (volume 6 Issue 5), subscribe to BLOCK Magazine HERE and don’t miss seeing this quilt in another fun colorway!

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

Waves can be scary. In 1958, a landslide triggered a 1,700+ foot wave in Lituya Bay, Alaska. And here’s the wildest part: A little fishing boat was carried atop that wave, clear up the side of the forested mountains and back. But somehow, the boat, the fisherman, and his 8-year-old son came away completely unscathed!

So, yeah, waves can be super-dee-duper scary. But Jenny’s waves? They’re just fun! Click HERE to learn how to whip up gorgeous, wavy curves using our drunkard’s path template!

Diamond Chain Quilt from The Cutting Table Quilt Blog - A Blog for Quilters by Quilters

Diamond Chain Quilt

Can you name the notes on a piano keyboard? ABCDEFG. That’s all! And yet, those seven notes can be played in a gazillion combinations to create sonatas, fugues, jazz or even a hearty rendition of chopsticks! 

Diamond Chain Quilt

The same is true for quilts. We use basic four-patch-blocks and half-square triangles to create an endless array of gorgeous quilt patterns. This week, Jenny arranged ‘em into a Diamond Chain quilt. Watch today’s tutorial and make this quick and easy charm pack pattern!

Cute Campers Quilt from The Cutting Table Quilt Blog - A Blog for Quilters by Quilters

Cute Camper Quilt Tutorial
Have you heard of “glamping?” It’s just like camping…but with a touch of glamour! Instead of roughing it with the bare essentials, you bring along the comforts of home⁠: running water, air conditioning, a welcome mat, and a real queen bed!
Cute Camper Quilt Tutorial
Here at Missouri Star, we hold an annual glamping retreat. Quilters make the trek to Hamilton with the cutest little trailers in tow. Some trailers are painted pink and blue. Some have polka dot curtains. Some are decorated with plastic pink flamingos. The whole scene is so adorable, it inspired this week’s new quilt!

English Garden Quilt from The Cutting Table Quilt Blog - A Blog for Quilters by Quilters

When I think of an English garden, I picture quaint gravel paths that divide shrubs and hedges like strips of sashing on a quilt. I picture drizzly afternoons and neat rows of pretty blooms. I picture cozy cups of tea sipped on quiet garden patios. I picture peace, order, and beauty.

This week Jenny has packed all the charm of a real English garden in her newest quilt. Click HERE to watch the tutorial!

Sunshine Lattice Quilt from The Cutting Table Quilt Blog - A Blog for Quilters by Quilters

The same tune can be played by a 70-piece orchestra or a honky-tonk band. The melody is identical, but boy, oh boy! It sure sounds different!

The same goes for quilts, you know. This week’s new quilt is classically pretty with the sunflowers of “Jardin Dy Soleil” by Lola Molina for Wilmington Prints. But guess what? If you use solids instead, the pattern instantly becomes fresh and modern! The possibilities are endless! Click HERE to watch the tutorial!
