An Exclusive Interview with Kaffe Fassett & Brandon Mably from The Cutting Table Quilt Blog - A Blog for Quilters by Quilters

Kaffe Fassett and Brandon Mably visit the Florals shop in Quilt Town, USA - 2019
Kaffe Fassett and Brandon Mably visit the Florals shop in Quilt Town, USA – 2019

Color is king when Kaffe Fassett comes to town! In 2019, we were thrilled to host the world-renowned color guru himself at a workshop and a lecture highlighting his latest projects. It was a feast for the eyes to see the Kaffe Fassett Collective’s designs up close and personal and our fabulous social media manager took a moment to sit down with Kaffe and Brandon Mably to chat about the sources of their inspiration and how they are able to collaborate so seamlessly together. These ...

We're Back "In the Garden" Again: Cornflowers from Telling Stories Through the Needle's Eye

As Kara stated last week, we will be revisiting our time capsule of posts from a few years ago, and going back In the Garden. We will be using many of the stitches we learned in our Hopeful Flowers Stitch Along, and sharing tips in our Hopeful Stitchers Facebook group. Since this post was first published, the quilt has been assembled, quilted, bound, and taught in two year-long BOMs at Primitive Homespuns. We hope that you will enjoy our return visit In the Garden, and if you have already stitched some of the blocks, perhaps you might share some of ...

Announcing the Designer Mystery Quilt Festival! from Fat Quarter Shop's Jolly Jabber

Hello, Quilters! Today we’re taking a walk back in time… Will you join us?

It was 2008 (Remember what you were doing in 2008?). Kimberly was falling in love with mystery quilts (can you blame her?). She wanted to start her own mystery quilt block of the month. She asked some wonderful quilt designers to design blocks for it…. And they said Yes! The rest, as they say, is history! And if you have ever been a member of the Designer Mystery Block of the Month then you, dear quilter, are part of that history, too.

Today, as our ...

Sunday Stash March 7, 2021 from Quilt Paint Create

No fabric in or out.

I finished the 14 star blocks for the 2016 BOM quilt. This pictures shows about half the blocks for the quilt. The stars don’t show that well in the photo (because of the lighting), but look fine in person.

Those blocks were my January OMG. It feels good to have that done and move on to the next thing I should have finished months ago.

Fabric In: 1 yard

Fabric Out: 0 yards

Net Fabric In: 1 yard

How did you do this week?

Vintage Jewel Block of the Month quilt from Pieced Brain

Vintage Jewel Block of the Month quilt

Don’t miss the sign-up at your local quilt store for the Vintage Jewel Block of the Month quilt that I designed for Blank Quilting. Must-make!

Here is Vintage Jewel right before I delivered it to Melissa from Sew Shabby Quilting for quilting. I designed it for and made it with the Jot Dot collection by Blank Quilting. How do you like the bright colors I chose?

Vintage Jewel measures 72″ x 86″ with blocks that are very easy to make. Follow the monthly program and put together a few blocks at a time. After 10 months, your quilt will ...

February 2021 Short List from Quilt Paint Create

January turned into one of those months when a whole lot of nothing got done. Best to put it behind me and move on.

Last month I talked about limiting active sewing projects to two, avoiding overwhelm. That didn’t happen either. Projects are everywhere. Again. I have a variety of projects to enjoy, depending on my mood.

The Short List categories are UFO, garment, original design, hand work, finishing, classes and other. I’ve used this system for 6+ years to keep me focused. The categories change as my goals and interests change. Categories with nothing in process will ...

Sunday Stash January 3, 2021 from Quilt Paint Create

It always feels good to start the year with a clean slate.

My stats from last week held and I finished the year down 5.625 yards. I’ll take any year when I use more than I buy.

I’m back to working on the Stars in the Night BOM having figured out where I left off. I have three blocks ready to sew together. Only eight more stars to go, and then I can move on to month five.

The original quilt had a dark teal background, thus the name.

Expect to see a lot of this quilt ...

January 2021 Short List from Quilt Paint Create

New year, new projects, new approach.

I had a productive December with both a UFO and a garment finish. That means new additions to the list.

In 2021 I will keep the list shorter. In looking at finishes in comparison to 2020 goals, it was clear my goals were too ambitious. That pushed me to get a lot of projects done, but I don’t want to feel overwhelmed.

I also realized I need to limit the active sewing projects to two. I have a small cluttered sewing room, and if the projects exceed two I have to move everything ...

IT'S THE MOST WONDERFUL TIME OF THE YEAR! from That's Sew Kerry

Especially when you get Great Presents!

It's no secret I have an addiction to fabric - so this is always a sure win when buying a present for me, but as a quilter I quite often get asked what 'good presents' to buy are. So I thought I'd put together a little list of things that have caught my eye recently or that I generally can't do with out in case anyone was struggling with what to buy for the quilter/sewer/crafter in their life.

This is not sponsored or affiliated in any way, simply my opinions ...
