Cricut for Quilting
You all know I love quilting! Or if you didn’t check out a few of my quilting posts HERE. Lately I have been using my Cricut Maker to help in the quilting process. Today I wanted to share a few of my favorite quilts and quilt blocks made using the Cricut.
Cricut for Quilting
The Cricut Maker is a nice tool for quilting. If you struggle to cut fabric straight or to cut the precise sizes needed for quilts then the Maker is something that might be super helpful for you.
This Cricut Maker bundle is perfect if you want to start sewing with a Cricut.
What can you make with a Cricut?
You can make so many things with your Cricut.
It can cut paper. Which means you can make some really cool paper flowers, invitations, scrapbooks, cards and more.
It can cut adhesive vinyl, heat transfer vinyl, sticker paper, and more. Which means you can make your own t-shirts, customized tumblers, stencils, and lots more.
It can also cut fabric and felt. Which means you can cut patterns for clothes, small projects, and even quilts. If you are looking for tips on cutting felt, THIS post is perfect for you.
If you are new to the Cricut I highly recommend THIS course from my dear friend who is the Cricut guru! This course will teach you all the basics of using your Cricut machine and Design Space.
Which Cricut is best for quilting?
The Cricut Maker is hands down the best Cricut for quilting. The rotary cutter tool is far superior to any other blade available for cutting machines right now.

Can Cricut cut fabric for quilting?
Yes! The Cricut Maker is great for cutting fabric. All of the quilt blocks and quilts listed below were created using the Cricut Maker. The possibilities are endless.
If you have Cricut Design Space you have access to thousands of images that would make wonderful appliques. I used several ballerina images to create these fun quilt blocks.
Also in Design Space you will find tons of templates for English Paper Piecing. The Maker can cut both the paper template and the fabric for EPP. If you’re interested in EPP check out THIS post.
Amy from Diary of a Quilter shows how she cuts EPP pieces in THIS post.
You can also use the Maker for foundation paper piecing. I have created a fun quilt pattern HERE. You can cut all the pieces using the Cricut!
