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

Learn to make this fun Jitterbug Quilt!

The Jitterbug was one of the most popular dances of the swing era, but how did it get such a funny name? Turns out “jitterbug” is just a combo of two cute little words: jitter and bug. But put ‘em together and you’ve got a name worth remembering!

Learn to make this Jitterbug Quilt with Jenny!

This week we’re working on the Jitterbug Quilt. And, like it’s namesake, it’s based on two simple little elements: the 4-patch and the half-square triangle. Combine those quilting powerhouses with an extra dose of creativity, and you’ve got a quilt as swanky as the swingingest jitterbug on ...

Quilting Elvis: Small Holiday Postcard = Big Gift from Gefilte Quilt

Uh oh! The holidays are upon us! If you're still stuck for a fast gift to make for people who deserve  more than an e-card, consider a quilted fiber art postcard. If you use novelty fabrics from your stash or LQS, they can be thoughtful, personal, and fun, all at the same time. (If elegant is more your style, consider making batik postcards, instead.)

Here's one of my latest:

(Elvis is singing Shalom, which means hello/goodbye/peace in Hebrew. Elvis had a non-secret Jewish  history!) The card is one of six I made in September:

How I choose a quilting design from Luna Lovequilts

For some projects I settle on the quilting design already during the assembly step. But if I have no particular plan I sketch a few designs before getting into the quilting. I took a few picture to show you my process.
Pour certains projets, je suis déjà fixée sur le design du quilting lors de l'étape d'assemblage. Mais si je n'ai pas d'idée particulière, je dessine quelques possibilités avant de me lancer dans le quilting. J'ai pris quelques photos pour vous montrer ma démarche.

Sashiko Subscription Box Beta coming soon! from The Ardent Thread

What is the Sashiko Subscription Box (beta), you ask? The beta part refers to the first box being a limited release which will also come with a feedback questionnaire so you can tell me what you think needs to be improved or what works well. The goal is to have a presentable subscription box that will launch in January with a seasonally appropriate project and/or set of nifty items every month. Prototypes are in the works right now.

Over the past year a few magazines approached me to design projects for them, and I couldn’t do it. I ...

How The Flowers Grew – or how I sew Ribbon Flower Blocks from Quilt Obsession

I was at least halfway through making the blocks for the Garden Gone Wild top before I finally realized just how much fun I could have with these blocks as they’re not only all curved piecing, but almost all continuous stitching! I think it was because I began with a ribbon flower block that had pieced “blades” and those that weren’t pieced.  That’s my excuse and I”m sticking with it. Once I identified this sewing sequence, I couldn’t get enough of making them!

The first step – make two sets of six of the centre shapes ...
