Butterfly House Quilt from The Cutting Table Quilt Blog - A Blog for Quilters by Quilters

The Butterfly House Quilt Tutorial from Missouri Star Quilt Co.

A butterfly is the pickiest of guests. 
Invite her for brunch, and she won’t eat a bite—unless you serve her favorite food. (Milkweed for monarchs; white cedar for hairstreaks.)

The Butterfly House Quilt Tutorial from Missouri Star Quilt Co.

On evening strolls, the weather must be perfect. If it’s too chilly, your fluttery friend will simply stop, drop, and nap. 

And no matter how lovely the guest room, it won’t tempt Miss Butterfly. Oh, she may request a posh butterfly house. But rest assured she’ll never step inside.

This week Jenny is stitching up a layer cake butterfly quilt fit for a queen. She’s ...

Caved Quilt Finish and Review from Dizzy Quilts

I don't share progress or process posts or pictures here or on Instagram. I just never think to stop and take a few pictures while engrossed in a project. Also, because of my full-time job, my sewing time is so precious. I want to make the most of it and just sew! What I thought I could do instead of simply sharing a finished project is provide you with a little bit of a review. Hopefully, you'll find this helpful.

A little note before I get started: I don't get sponsored and pay for everything I share ...

Join Jenny, Misty and Natalie in an all new Triple Play featuring three unique patterns utilizing 10″ papers.

In 1899, an unknown quilter began stitching fabric scraps on a paper foundation. Alas, the quilt was never finished. (It happens to us all!) The incomplete top is on display at the Virginia Quilt Museum, and the paper is still intact.

The Lattice Quilt is finished! from Jan's Quilts


The Lattice Quilt is complete and I'm a dork. This one is going to my daughter Carrie in N.C., and I was getting it ready to mail; the box was taped shut, then I realized I hadn't taken any photos!  Must take photos! 



For the quilt back I used the left-overs from the layer-cake.  The quilt measures 48" x 57".

What time is it? from Jan's Quilts


It's binding time!  These six quilts need binding!  Two are queen-size and the others are lap quilts.  I better get busy because my LAQ has six more; three will be ready at the end of June and three will be ready at the end of July.  

This pandemic has really kept me busy making quilts.  I'd rather be creating than binding, but, "Oh, Well"!

 

May your bobbins always be full,

Join Jenny, Natalie and Misty for a Triple Play! featuring three new design of Tumbler quilts.

In the olden days, tumbler quilts were often made with scraps gathered from friends and neighbors. A bit of paisley from Aunt Maude. A stripe or two from Granny.  A pretty toile from Jane next door.

Playground Quilt from The Cutting Table Quilt Blog - A Blog for Quilters by Quilters

Playground Quilt by the Missouri Star Quilt Company.

When Jenny Doan was a child, she lived in an idyllic little town called Spreckels, California. 

In the center of town stood a park circled by a wide sidewalk, the perfect canvas for chalk artists to create all sorts of interesting scenes: Fields of poppies, snow-capped mountains, coral reefs filled with rainbow-hued fish.

How she wished to hop right in – Mary Poppins style – to explore those magical worlds!

Playground Quilt by the Missouri Star Quilt Company.

This week, Jenny is working on a Playground quilt that is as charming as that small-town park. It’s a beautiful jelly roll + layer cake pattern made with easy flying geese, square ...

Lady of the Lake Quilt from The Cutting Table Quilt Blog - A Blog for Quilters by Quilters

Once upon a time, the Lady of the Lake emerged from the waters of Avalon to bestow a magical sword on young King Arthur. Arthur took that sword to war and…was mortally wounded. What a shame! What if she had given him a fancy new sewing machine instead? Just imagine the quilts he could have made! 

The Lady of the Lake quilt pattern is an old-fashioned favorite made entirely of half-square triangles. Jenny used layer cakes in bright white and “Horizon,” the 2021 Kona Color of the Year to create a two-color quilt that is lovely as a fairytale ...

quote marks quilt from Making A Lather

It's a new month, but, I still have yellow to finish from February. These are the quote marks from the full stop quilt that Angela is doing. I have a few bonus 2 inch  HSTS - ( half square triangles ) I chose the easy example of quote marks that Angela offered. 



I am still taming the scraps this week by cutting 10 inch squares.  3 pounds 5 ounces = 9 1/4 yards = 95.00 worth of fabric. I counted 52 squares = 4 packs of layer cakes = 160.00 

My worry is that I won't use them. Since I haven't ...

The Skylight Quilt from Missouri Star Quilt Co.

Are you anxiously waiting for spring to arrive? You are not alone! The residents of Longyearbyen, Norway, have lived in darkness since October 25th. That’s 3,000 hours with no sunshine at all! 

But on March 8th, the sun will finally peek over the horizon, and the townsfolk are ready to par-tay with a week-long festival called Solfestuka. Choir children dress like sunbeams, folks feast on sunshiny pastries, and a few brave souls dress in swimsuits and sunglasses!

Of course, no celebration is complete without a quilt, so Jenny has whipped up a gorgeous new pattern to welcome the ...

Sunshine Shoofly Quilt from The Cutting Table Quilt Blog - A Blog for Quilters by Quilters
