National Sewing Month!

September is here and that means National Sewing Month! We’ll be celebrating all month long with some fun posts and fabric. We asked a few bloggers to help inspire you with easy-to-make projects in beautiful FreeSpirit fabrics. Each week during the month of September we will bring you a tutorial for a fun project from a different blogger. And at the end of the month, we’ll be giving away fabric. You won’t want to miss any of it!

Today, we kick things off with the perfect quilting accessory made from FreeSpirit Florence by Denyse Schmidt. The Mat Carrier by Melissa Peda fits an 18” square cutting mat with a pocket on the back for patterns, snips, threads, etc. The pattern uses an 18” finished quilt block for the front panel, although you can easily substitute a simple square in your favorite print. Click on the photo above for the PDF of this handy carrier.

The pictured project features a modified quilt block from Denyse Schmidt’s Between The Lines quilt pattern. The block is used with permission by Denyse Schmidt and is not part of the pattern which is available now at and at local quilt shops.

We hope you’ll join us as we celebrate sewing. If you have a favorite sewing memory, please share it with us. We’d love to hear who first taught you to sew!
