Love to Sew Quilt Pattern

Love to Sew Mini Quilt Pattern

Decorate your sewing space with a Love to Sew Mini Quilt showcasing fun spools. The spools are pieced with fun sewing-themed fabrics, and then assembled into a larger thread spool motif. Add machine embroidery to some of the small spools to echo your love of sewing, using our new machine embroidery collection. The collection is available as individual designs, as a collection and delivered with purchase of our Love to Sew Machine Embroidery Palette. The palette contains the six Rayon thread spools needed to embroider all of the designs in the collection!

Designed by Cherry Guidry of Cherry Blossoms Quilting, this pattern is for confident beginners through advanced quilters. Choose the quilting you’d like to do, and are most comfortable with. The fun of a mini quilt is that it can fit in a home sewing machine with plenty of room for free-motion fun, quilting in the ditch, echo quilting around each spool and so on. Use invisible thread for quilting that disappears, leaving the fabric as the star. Or use the same rayon thread used for the embroidery to create shiny quilting that pops. Sulky 50 wt. Cotton Thread is a great choice for the piecing, as it is strong and easy to sew. This thread also works for the quilting, if desired.
