10 Fun Sewing-Themed Quilts!

I love sewing-themed quilts. From spools of thread to vintage sewing machines, there are lots of fun designs you can feature on a quilt to showcase your love of sewing. I had a little fun this week and dug through our archives to pull together a list of sewing-themed quilts that have been published by Quiltmaker and some of our sister brands. Hope you enjoy!
