Kits and Alternative Layouts - Cutting Corners

Other Cutting Corners Quilt pattern options and kits

Hi lovely quilters!

this post is all about alternative layouts for the recently released Cutting Corners Quilt pattern (perfect for beginners!), which fabrics I used for the two samples I made for the launch and! where you can find kits ready to go to make your own version of the pattern :) And remember, it is fat quarter friendly!

The samples

I am starting with the version I also used as guideline for the instructions. All the fabrics for this small throw quilt top are Pure Solids from Art Gallery, kindly provided by the UK based shop Sew and Quilt. Jessica, the lovely owner, is also selling kits carrying the exact same colours and that you can find in her shop.

The colours used for this medium size version are:

  • Grapefruit
  • Heart of the Ocean
  • Festival Fuchsia
  • Rock Candy
  • Turmeric
  • Wisteria
  • Ocean Fog

The backing I went for is this beautiful Ruby Star Society fabric from their 'Reading Nook' collection and the binding is also from Ruby Star, from the 'Hole Punch' collection.

The second version (small throw size as well) is another stunner if I say so myself! ;) Jo, from another gorgeous online fabric shop based in the UK called A Beautiful Thing, also kindly provided the fabrics for this quilt top. All of these fabrics are Ruby Star Society from their collection 'Sketchbook'. She is also selling kits with the exact same fabrics and that you can findin her shop.

Apart from these two shops, you will also be able to find kits at the beautifully curated Floyd the Fox, based in Germany. Her owner Helen has created four beautiful kits that you can find right now in her shop! You can find below the mock-ups we have made for you to get an idea of how these quilts would look.

Last, I am incredibly excited to be working with Canadian based shop Monkland Quilt Studio and their lovely owner Rebecca, who's providing kits for all quilters based in North America and that you can find in two sizes, small and large throw (check mock-ups below).

The fabrics used for these kits come from the 'Wandering' collection by amazing fabric designer Stephanie Organes for Andover Fabrics.

I have also been lucky enough to have super talented quilter Annie making a sample and taking the most gorgeous pictures. You can discover her Cutting Corners version in a different post.


To finish this post, I am sharing some alternative layouts I created so that you have even more inspiration to make your own Cutting Corners Quilt :)





On the instructions, you will also find a colouring page to create your own version. The Cutting Corners Quilt is also ideal to use all those scraps you have kept for so long. Go and take a look and make it your own!

Thanks for reading. I hope you enjoy making the Cutting Corners Quilt pattern and don't forget to share your version on social media using the hashtags #cocowawaquilts and #cwcuttingcornersquilt.
