A Tote For Retreats, A Table Mat For Decor, or Both.
Put your quilting on display with this sweet sewing machine mini quilt. There’s patchwork in progress, and two spools of thread above a pieced heart. The scene wouldn’t be complete without a pincushion within reach.
Stitch one up to have in your sewing area. Choose fun fabric combinations and put up a parade of sewing machines. I love how the Aurifil cottons match the patchwork project.
The Quilting Nook
Put scraps together from favorite projects. At a finished size of 17″ x 20″, it’s a practical size that can be used as a sewing mat, and makes a lovely gift for quilters.
Leave out the border and use the block for a retreat sewing case or bag! Put your patchwork on display while toting to sewing class and quilt groups. Christine Lux from Sew Lux Fabric, used her bag pattern and simply stitched the sewing machine quilt block to the front. The block without the border is just the right size for a generous size 20″ tote. You can see more about how Christine incorporated the block here.
The mini quilt is designed by Camille Roskelley, and makes a fun block that can be incorporated into many projects, for gifts and a pretty addition to your sewing room!
