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!

Island Batik Modern Pattern Play from Carol Lyles Shaw

This month, the Island Batik challenge was secondary pattern play.  So, of course, I made it Island Batik Modern Pattern Play!

I returned to one of my favorite techniques–improvisational curved blocks that I call Parisian Curves. (Pattern and detailed tutorial is in my book, Madly Modern Quilts available online and at local quilt shops).  This post is a tutorial showing one way that I approach improvisational design. It’s an improvisational design process that I teach in my workshops to help students move away from the layout that I provide.

I’m excited to share part 2 of my “Quilting Made Easy” series with Riley Blake and Cricut.

I love sharing innovative ways to approach quilting, and these quilt kits are a fantastic way for both beginners and experienced quilters to put together quilts that look beautiful every time!

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.

This week Jenny is working on a new pattern that is so cute, you may have to put your chores ...

TUTORIAL: Flight Path Baby Quilt from Wedding Dress Blue

Airplanes zoom all over this baby quilt.  I love that it IS NOT paper pieced.  Blessings on those of you who love paper piecing, and it definitely has its place in the quilting world, but it is possible to get angles without it.  The technique is a little different, so feel free to ask questions, and I will do my best.

Minnesota Winter Wonderland QAL - June from Quilt Doodle Doodles...

http://www.quiltdoodledesigns.com/BOM-2016.html
So with this month's section, I am dreaming of the cold days of winter and thinking of our Minnesota boys who dream of hockey. Watching hockey, playing hockey.... be it on skates in an arena or on the lake in boots, Minnesota boys love hockey. Being the good mom I am, I tried really hard to get my boys into hockey, but neither one liked it. But now that they are grown, they love going to a Minnesota Wild game to cheer the local team on. They both have also been known to play a game or two of ...

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!

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.

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 ...

Spring has Sprung? from Podunk Pretties

Happy Monday morning quilting friends!  Here it is April 9th and I wake up to more snow!   Mother nature has lost her mind.  Father time needs to show her a calendar.  Yes, I love snow and it is so pretty but I'm longing for spring flowers, digging in the dirt and taking off a few layers of clothing.  My studio is bright and happy year around with flowery quilts everywhere.  So I thought I would share one of them with you today. This is Scrap Happy Baskets.

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!
