Festive finale Friday from The Academic Quilter

Hello all!  It's 27 degrees here today, and there has been water running down my street from a broken pipe all day. Not my pipe, thank goodness, but a *lot* of water.  They've sent the salt truck down the street twice, but it's going to be treacherous out there in the morning. And the water is still running! My fingers are crossed for the neighbor with the broken lateral pipe, that's for sure.

Today I am showing off my last finish of 2019! It's really the first in my quest to get all of these ...

Holiday themed rag quilt with Sweet Treasures Quilts from Carried Away Quilting


I’ve lost count of how many quilts I’ve made over the years, which is probably a good thing. (I might be embarrassed to know the total number.) But in all my years of sewing and quilting, I had never made a rag quilt . . . until recently that is! Armed with a great pattern and some charming holiday themed flannels, my home is ready for Christmas visitors thanks to this new quilt.


For those of you who are unfamiliar with the term, a rag quilt is made by sewing sandwiched blocks (a block top, a piece of batting, and a ...

Sweetly Scalloped for Christmas from Carried Away Quilting


Hello quilting friends! I have another Christmas quilt to share with you today. This one is for my mom, and it’s based on my Sweetly Scalloped pattern. If I weren’t concerned about landing on the naughty list, I’d be tempted to keep it for myself. I love how it turned out, but more importantly, I know my mom will love it too.


Mom recently moved into a pretty apartment for the winter months, where she’ll have access to fun activities and lots of friendly people. We had a great time selecting new furniture for her winter ...

A Look Inside BLOCK Magazine: Winter 2019 from The Cutting Table Quilt Blog - A Blog for Quilters by Quilters

“Great stories happen to those who can tell them.” -Ira Glass

A Note From Jenny Doan, BLOCK Magazine Winter Issue 2019

After the winter holidays, I like to write down the moments that made me smile. Like the care that went into a handmade gift from a grandchild, the friendly chatter around the family dinner table, and the sweet older lady who talked to me at the post office. Every day there’s something to remind me there is good in this world. These little moments make up each day and when I stop to appreciate them, it changes my perspective, and ultimately, my life.

Our lives are composed of ...

Scrappy Hats QAL Day 10 from Quilt Doodle Doodles

Welcome to Day 10

 
I hope that you are enjoying the snowman blocks so far. There's thirteen snowmen blocks all together. I tried to arrange the directions from easiest to hardest blocks. If you are new to quilting, this is a good skill builder for you. It's also a great stash buster if you are only pulling from your fabric stash to do this quilt. I am using a fat quarter bundle that I have been hoarding for a couple of years now. Today's block is a Flying Geese block, we are going to make 6 ...

Scrappy Hats QAL Day 3 from Quilt Doodle Doodles

Welcome to Day 3!

Today we will work on snowman hat brim #2. It's another super easy block and will only take you a few minutes to complete. The pattern does not list what fabrics to use for your hat brims. Just to make it scrappy and have fun with it. This way your quilt will have a personality all of its own. I want to give you space to be creative and have fun mixing up the colors. If you are using a limited number of fat quarters and not pulling out of your stash of fabric... to ...
