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!

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 ...

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.

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 ...

One Direction Quilt from The Cutting Table Quilt Blog - A Blog for Quilters by Quilters

One Direction Quilt

When I’m laying out a quilt, I try my best to follow the pattern. But when I’m asked, for example, to turn every third block one clockwise quarter turn, I always end up with a couple flying geese headed the wrong direction! What can I say? Some of us are directionally challenged!

If you struggle too, the One Direction Quilt is calling your name! Every single one of these adorable arrows points right to the center of the quilt. No left or right to remember. You just can’t fail! Click HERE to watch the tutorial!

Double Irish Chain from Zarkadia Quilts

Double Irish Chain quilt block has been a very popular quilt block for many years. The final quilt is a very impressive one that is really a true traditional beauty.
I have been wanting to make one for some time now, and this tutorial has awakened something in me.

It is a quilt that looks really complicated, but careful! This is just an illusion. The actual block is super-easy, and I consider it perfect for beginners, as it makes you practice A LOT with seam nesting.

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?

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!
