Friday, April 7, 2017
I'm so excited to share my latest pattern with you. Meet Cookie Cutter!



Quilt Details 
Fabric is Kona by Robert Kaufman
Pattern - Cookie Cutter, JBQ 170
Designed by me 
Quilted by Angela Walters
Started on 1/26/17
Finished on 3/10/17
Quilt measures - 56" x 72"


Here are the Kona cotton colors I used.


You'll be able to get a FQ bundle soon. Robert Kaufman will be shipping them to shops this July.


Cookie Cutter can be made in 5 sizes: Baby, Lap, Twin, Queen or King.
The fabric requirements on the back of the pattern are listed in precuts for Baby, Lap & Twin, yardage for Queen or King. Here is a quick cheat sheet for how many bundles you can use to make the quilt size you want:


You can see some great detail here of Angela's quilting. The background fabric is Kona White.

I tried baking sugar cookies this past holiday season & I'm hooked. My new collection of cookie cutters in the kitchen inspired this design.






Cookie Cutter is made using the Super Sidekick ruler & I've got a video tutorial to help you learn how to use the ruler. Full size templates are included in the pattern.



I used Bahama Blue to back the quilt & my perfect binding tutorial will help you to finish it.

I've got a few outtakes for you from the cover photo shoot. Here I am testing out our location.

My dad came along with me & then we switched spots because he thought it was best for me to be behind the camera.

You can still see dad's hand on the left. He didn't trust me that the quilt wouldn't fall in to the water feature below. Eventually he trusted me and we got the photo you see on the cover.


The Cookie Cutter pattern is printed in full color, will be shipping to shops in mid-April & there's no Y seams!! Be sure to share your Cookie Cutter quilts with us on social media using #CookieCutterQuilt. I can't wait to see what you come up with!
