Antique Lace Quilt from The Cutting Table Quilt Blog - A Blog for Quilters by Quilters

Antique Lace Quilt

It all began with a single quilt block. Just one lonely old block whose story had long been forgotten. Luckily, Jenny’s a real sucker for antiques, and she fell in love in an instant! And right away, she knew she wanted to recreate it.

Antique Lace Quilt

She carefully pieced a big pile of copycat blocks, stitched ‘em together, and was delighted to discover a secondary block appear out of nowhere! Learn how to make this pretty quilt using half square triangles made out of strip sets!

All Stars Quilt from The Cutting Table Quilt Blog - A Blog for Quilters by Quilters

All Stars Quilt

There’s a pretty big football game this week. Best of the season, they say. And while I do enjoy a touchdown or two, those yards of turf just can’t compare to a yard of brand new quilting fabric! So while those football stars are racing to the endzone, I’ll be stitchin’ up a team of my own all stars!

All Stars Quilt

The All Stars quilt is based on a design by Jenny’s cute husband, Ron. It’s a quick, modern pattern that makes use of two of our favorite precuts: 10 inch squares and 2.5 inch strips.

Quilted Hearts and Twister from Mulberry Patch Quilts

I’ve been wanting to make something for Valentines Day, and when the theme of “Red, White, & Blue” for Project Quilting Challenge #2 (Season 10), I knew what I wanted to make.

The challenge states you can use reds, whites, and blues…any shades…no other colors, but you DON’T have to use all three colors.

  1. RULE#1…Your project should contain ONLY the colors RED, WHITE, and BLUE. It does not have to use all three, but it cannot include any additional colors.

So I decided, with Valentines Day coming up, I’d limit my colors to just ...

Little Bowtie Block Tutorial from Repro Quilt Lover

I’m late off the mark to write a post about plans for 2019 but I did make some. Then changed them. Then changed them again. Then I was so confused about my plans for the new year that I tossed all the plans and went back to the initial plan. I want to make at least one little quilt each month in 2019 and share that here. If any of your plans include making little quilts then I hope you’ll share your quilts with me here…or on Instagram because I’m there, too. Look me up, I ...

~ Good Fortune ~ Part 3 ~ from Podunk Pretties

Yeah! Chevrons!  Don't you just love the clue for this week?!  We get to use the green, which I love, even though my green is the color of spinach. (that makes more sense if you read yesterdays post)  Okay I'll agree these can be kinda tricky.  But this is doable.  The fist thing we need to do is... believe we can do it.  You know the story of the little engine that could?!....LOL!  It really is that simple.  You need to believe you can do it before you can do it.  A little positive energy goes a ...

Island Batik Improv Log Cabin Tutorial from Carol Lyles Shaw

Making an improv log cabin quilt was a fun challenge.  In my newest Island Batik challenge, I combined two themes to create an improv log cabin wall hanging–here’s the tutorial showing how I did it.

Cozy Log Cabins is the first challenge theme that I used!  Log cabins are a great traditional pattern and I remember making many versions when I first learned to quilt many, many years ago.   It’s also a traditional pattern that you can easily make modern and I will show you how I did that.

The second theme is Whimsical and Wonky!  I ...

Island Batik Star Struck Quilt Tutorial from Carol Lyles Shaw

This month’s challenge for Island Batik is Star Struck and this is my quilt tutorial and free pattern for my modern version of a star.

I had a difficult time getting the color match on the full quilt photos! This looks a bit yellow–background fabric is actually white. See the close up of the star point below for the true colors.

The Island Batik Ambassador challenge this month was to create a Star Quilt.  I decided to take a modern approach and create an oversized wonky star using a limited color palette.  The modern design principles I played ...

Elephant and Donkey Quilt from The Cutting Table Quilt Blog - A Blog for Quilters by Quilters

Elephant and Donkey Quilts

Pixel quilting is all the rage, but it’s really not a new technique. In 1931, the Kansas City Star published a mosaic elephant pattern as a tribute to a beloved elephant at the local zoo.

Elephant and Donkey Quilts

The next year, a companion quilt was released. This one featured a pixelated donkey named Giddap. Both are cute as can be, and so easy to put together!

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!

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.

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.
