It’s not hard to figure out where my inspiration for Sewing Seasons comes from. My sewing room! Specifically, I am inspired by some old sewing tools and antiques in my sewing room. First, here’s the pattern:
You can make the large wall hanging or just make the mini wall hangings for each season and display those separately. The following are close up photos of each panel and what inspired me.
First up is the spring panel:
This was inspired by these old threads I inherited from my mother-in-law. I keep them in this pretty jar as a decoration. Most of them are wooden spools. The pretty colors of the thread still on the spools makes this decoration beautiful!
For the summer panel, I was inspired by these large wooden spools I have laying around the sewing room:
Now here is the fall panel:
The inspiration for that came from this basket of old sewing supplies I have displayed. I took liberties with the color, as you can see, and made the basket in the panel blue to add some color.
Finally, my winter panel:
This was inspired by this fun old ruler I found at a garage sale. I immediately thought it would be a cute Christmas tree!
So there you have it! My inspiration for the new pattern, Sewing Seasons. Do you get inspired by things around the sewing room or other places that inspire your quilts?
