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!
Sewful Things: Spools, buttons and thimbles, oh my! This throw designed by QM associate editor Diane Harris is featured in Quilts From Quiltmaker’s 100 Blocks, Fall ’14. (It was inspired by her I’m Sew Happy block from vol. 9). Finished size is 57” x 70.5”.
My Sewing Room: This wall hanging designed by Charise Randell would make the most charming addition to your sewing room. It features a foundation pieced sewing machine, an iron and two dress forms — and check out those spools on the border. The pattern is included in Quilts From Quiltmaker’s 100 Blocks, Spring ’13. Finished size is 21” x 45”.

Pinweel blocks “bloom” on the design alongside flowers, birds, butterflies, appliquéd vines and leaves and a gazebo. It was designed by our art director Denise Starck and the QM staff and features piecing, foundation piecing and appliqué. Finished size is 72” x 94”.
