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

Sundance Quilt

Fun fact: The cupcake was originally named for its super-simple recipe: 1 cup butter, 2 cups sugar, 3 cups flour, and 4 eggs. No pinch. No dash. No hand-crafted vanilla or truffles foraged under a full moon. Just 6 cups & a handful of eggs! Easy peasy!

Sundance Quilt

This week Jenny uses Moda’s Cupcake Mix® Recipe 4 to whip up an easy batch of tiny blocks just as sweet as real cupcakes. Click HERE to learn how to make this pretty quilt!

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

Star Patch Quilt

What makes a sunset so special? I mean, every single night – just like clockwork – that same ‘ole sun sinks below the same ‘ole horizon. So why do we write poems and sing love songs and treasure every last drop of fading sunlight? It’s all in the details!

Star Patch Quilt

From the shape of the clouds to the moisture in the air, tiny variations work together to create a show of color and light as magnificent as it is unique! Orange and purple streaks. Dramatic rays of gold. Moody silver and navy blue.  You just never know what Mother Nature has up ...

Pinwheel Picnic Quilt from The Cutting Table Quilt Blog - A Blog for Quilters by Quilters

Pinwheel Picnic Quilt

My very favorite quilts are the kind of quilts that are used and enjoyed. The ones that snuggle a baby or keep Mom warm during chilly little league games. The ones that follow you to the beach and the mountains and dozens of family picnics. They may end up with a smudge or a stain, but these quilts are always the best loved – and so full of memories!

Pinwheel Picnic Quilt

This week Jenny is whipping up a pretty new pinwheel quilt that comes together so quickly, it will soon be ready for many grand adventures! Click HERE to watch the tutorial!

Scallop City Quilt Tutorial from The Cutting Table Quilt Blog - A Blog for Quilters by Quilters

Scallop City Quilt

On the tiny Italian island of Burano, each little house is painted a cheery shade of pink, orange, green…you name it! You can wander every canal and alleyway and not find a single speck of beige; the cityscape is one giant rainbow!

Scallop City Quilt

54-40 or Fight Freestyle Quilt

Before 1920, American women didn’t have the right to vote, but you can bet your boots they had opinions! And you can find a record of their political voice in the loveliest of places: their quilts!

Kite Season Quilt from The Cutting Table Quilt Blog - A Blog for Quilters by Quilters

Kite Season Quilt

Rumor has it that in 18th century Japan, kites were totally banned. The reason? Folks were having so much fun flying kites, they weren’t getting any work done. I have to admit, I can relate. When I get excited about a new quilt, everything else fades away. The dishes can pile up in the sink, the lawn can grow knee-high, but I’m happy as a clam in my sewing room with a stack of freshly pressed quilt blocks.

Jenny’s Doll Quilt from The Cutting Table Quilt Blog - A Blog for Quilters by Quilters

Jenny's Doll Quilt

Most of us can recall a special quilt or two from childhood. A cherished baby blanket. The bedspread of your grandmother’s sleepover bed. A favorite camp quilt or picnic blanket.

Jenny's Doll Quilt

And you know what? I bet if you sift through your memories, you can even remember a print or two of patchwork, the smell of the fabric, and the softness of a well worn binding. Because the truth is, when you make a quilt for a child, you are making memories.

Royal Wedding Quilt from The Cutting Table Quilt Blog - A Blog for Quilters by Quilters

Royal Wedding Quilt

On Saturday, May 19, the eyes of the world were fixed on the royal wedding of Britain’s Prince Harry and his lovely American bride, Meghan Markle. But my eyes? They were fixed on that veil!

Royal Wedding Quilt

It was 16.5 feet of flowing silk tulle with hand-embroidered flowers all along the edge: California poppy to represent Meghan’s home, wintersweet to represent the home of her prince, and flowers for each of the 53 countries in the Commonwealth. As you can imagine, it took hundreds of hours to stitch that garden of silk and organza blooms. And since they were ...

River Log Cabin Quilt from The Cutting Table Quilt Blog - A Blog for Quilters by Quilters

River Log Cabin Quilt

Ever heard of diamond rain? Sounds impossible, but lightning storms on Saturn produce thousands of little sparklers every single year! And here on earth, we can get some pretty remarkable precipitation, too. In 1887, giant snowflakes fell on a Montana ranch; one was measured at a whopping 15 inches! It may seem impossible, but “impossible” things happen every day!

River Log Cabin Quilt

This week Jenny is whipping up a little miracle of her own with the River Log Cabin Quilt. Because, while it sounds impossible, when you put together 1.5 inch strips and 2.5 inch strips in just the right way ...

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 ...

Strings Attached Quilt from The Cutting Table Quilt Blog - A Blog for Quilters by Quilters

Strings Attached Quilt

Chevrons have been a hot trend for a long time. (A really, really long time.) Jenny stitched up THIS version in 2015, and THIS one in 2012, but it goes back much further than that! Chevron motifs have been found on 4,000-year-old pottery and rock carvings – and, honestly, they’ve been cool ever since!

Strings Attached Quilt

The Strings Attached quilt is made quick and easy with the 10” Rhombus Template, but it’s the vertical sashing that really sets this pattern apart! Click HERE to watch the tutorial!

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.

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!
