Happy National Sewing Machine Day! Today we will take a minute to show our appreciation of the all-important sewing machine. There are sew many great sewing and quilting projects that celebrate the sewing machine, and we thought we’d share a few here.
Sew many great sewing machine related patterns!!
Make a cute wall-hanging or placemat with Stitched with Love Quilt Pattern by Thimble Blossoms. The 17″ x 20″ mini quilt is fat quarter friendly, making it perfect for your favorite fabric collection.
Sew Big Or Go Home Quilt Pattern by Kelli Fannin is the perfect quilt to make out of scraps! Add borders or leave as is for a wall-hanging or lap quilt. It has step by step cutting and piecing instructions with illustrations at each step. This fabulous quilt finishes at 63″ x 71″.
Kelli Fannin has done it again with her Stitch Happens Quilt Pattern! This adorable quilt finishes at 37″ x 40″ and would be a great mini quilt addition to your sewing room or nook.
Lori Holt of Bee in my Bonnet has recently released her Sew She Did Cross Stitch Pattern dedicated to the all-important sewing machine, and the strong quilting women of the past that have made quilting what it is today!
We also have our very own sewing machine block – Sew On & Sew On Quilt Block from our Snapshots Quilt Along a few years ago! The block pattern is free, just add borders to make it a mini quilt or add it to your next quilting project.
