We are honored to have Stephanie Soebbing of Quilt Addicts Anonymous as our Featured Designer for April. Such a talent, Stephanie has so much knowledge and so many designs to offer quilters from all walks of life. In addition to offering some of her favorite patterns through Cotton Cuts, Stephanie offers quilt tutoring and projects on her website. You will find it hard not to lose yourself in the options and opportunities she provides to help you take your own quilting addiction to the next level.

Here are all the details about each of Stephanie's patterns being offered through Cotton Cuts for a limited time. Each of these patterns are beginner-friendly. You will have a hard time selecting just one.


Sound Waves is a modern fat quarter-friendly pattern that is perfect to use an entire collection or bust your stash. The pattern uses an entire fat quarter with no waste, so it’s great for quilters who don‘t like leftovers at the end of a project.

The piecing is simple with easy straight seams. The fat quarter strips are cut on the length of fabric, which means there is minimal stretching and the rows that t together without much fuss. A design wall or spare bed is helpful when determining the layout of this quilt, along with blank address labels to keep track of your pieces and rows.


Celestial is one of Stephanie's favorite types of quilt designs, one that looks way more complicated than it actually is.

The blocks are assembled using strip piecing and no Y-seams, so the quilt top comes together very quickly. The original is made with specific placements of fabrics to create the beautiful color change that is repeated in each block. But it could also be made scrappy.

A 60-degree triangle ruler with all three points, like the Clearview Triangle, is needed in order to cut the right amount of diamonds for this pattern.


Nightshade is a perfect pattern to use with too pretty to cut up fabric. The block centers are a perfect candidate for fussy cutting, just make sure you get a few extra fat quarters if you plan to fussy cut.

The strip-pieced block frames make the quilt top assembly go very fast and ample negative space also provides a fun background for interesting quilting choices.


Singularity is named for the pattern of half square triangles. When the blocks are assembled it looks like the threads that bind the universe together.

The construction is simple, made from squares and two-at-a-time half square triangles. But the layout allows for large sections of negative space, giving the eye a place to rest, and the chance to do some fabulous quilting.

18 Carats Revisited

There’s nothing better than an easy pattern that looks complicated. That‘s what you get with 18 Carat Revisited.

The blocks for this quilt are created by slicing up half square triangles to create the angled strips that make up the spiky block design. This pattern is a re-imagined version of 18 Carat, which creates the same block using a 10-inch square pack.
