We’ve got you covered from head to toe with bold, beautiful patterns!
Dear Sewing Superstar,
Time flies when you’re having fun — and what’s more fun than a new sewing or quilting project! Celebrate the end of 2022 with the top 25 patterns that We Like Sewing readers just couldn’t get enough of! From quilt blocks to flirty tops, holiday décor to splendid summer wear, there are plenty of projects here to inspire you!
The patterns in our Best of 2022 Issue of We Like Sewing range from Easy to Experienced. That means skill and confidence building for beginning sewists, and interesting challenges for the more experienced among us. All these projects are designed to brighten your day, your wardrobe, and your home! Let’s take a peek inside…
Best of the Best
A well-made quilt is a work of love — and a blend of precise piecing and persistent patience. The time you spend creating our Between the Lines Windmill Quilt will be time well spent. The end result is striking with its eye-catching contrast.
This pattern calls for precise piecing in order to create the stunning windmill effect, making this a terrific project for intermediate and experienced quilters. When you’re done, you’ll have a lovely lap quilt, perfect for spreading across your bed, draping over the back of the sofa, or displaying proudly as a wall hanging.
How about a figure-flattering top with vintage vibes and a modern design that’s totally customizable? Make our Summer Breeze Boho Top in a woven fabric for day wear, or dress it up in satin for some evening glam that will leave people wondering where you got that great designer top! Customize this top to fit your personal style.
We know there’s more to Christmas décor than ugly sweaters, and our readers do, too. Maybe you’ll make the Gnome for the Holidays decorations to add a little whimsy to your mantel. Make these adorable little gnomes with scrap fabric or fat quarters, and finish off their hats with tiny star buttons. So cute!
Go mad for everything plaid and make our Perfect in Plaid String Quilt Block. This project will give you a fun and easy block pattern to work with. Use it in a small project, or make a bunch to create your own plaid quilt!
If you love snow, you’ll love of First Snowfall Patchwork Quilt Block in shades of silver, white, and blue. Or welcome the winter holidays with our Winter Day Reindeer Throw Pillow or our Jingle All the Way Quilted Wall Hanging — a great way to add extra fun to your winter decorating!
Dare to Accessorize
A fashionable leather bag with timeless style doesn’t have to break the bank. Skip cheap and trendy purses and design your own Truly Timeless Leather Tote Bag — in real or vegan leather! This will be the simple stylish tote you’ll reach for again and again!
Top off your favorite summer outfit with a hat you can make yourself! Our Key West Straw Sunhat is so much fun to make, you’ll want to make hats for family and friends, too! Need to keep your hair out of the way? Make an assortment of our All Tied Up Summer Scrunchies to keep your hair back in style!
Don’t throw out that broken umbrella — until you’ve reclaimed the fabric and transformed it into our Right as Rain Upcycled Umbrella Tote. This is recycling at its best! And when you’re ready to head out into a brisk autumn day, our Northeast Chic Oversized Fall Scarf will keep you feeling cozy and looking great!
Summer Never Goes Out of Style
Summertime is when we head outdoors and gather with friends for a picnic. Make your picnic picture perfect with our Pickle Dish Picnic Quilt. If you’re feeling ambitious and you’d like to amp up your paper piecing skills, this is the project for you. This stunning quilt is based on the classic pickle dish pattern, and offers you a great opportunity to create a gorgeous quilt with an elegant, intricate design. The pattern includes detailed cutting, piecing, and sewing instructions, along with detailed diagrams to help you keep your project on track. Bring the past to life with this classic quilt!
Hot days call for a cool top, and you’ll find it in our Sunny SoCal Relaxed Summer Tee — laid back, colorful, and a joy to wear. Not only that, this pattern is designed for zero waste so you can make the most out of your fabric. This top is the perfect flattering, comfy fit for your summer wardrobe.
Other warm-weather projects include the Sapphire Summer Peasant Blouse, the Primrose Shirred Dress, and the Floral Splendor Quilted Throw Pillow. Take a vacation from the day-to-day and make some new summer style!
Cozy Projects for Chilly Autumn Days
When fall rolls around, harvest the compliments around the table when you make our Midwest Table Runner and Napkins. Update your table setting for the holiday season with this simple and sophisticated table runner with matching cloth napkins in holiday colors or classic country prints. Once the table’s set, give your planters an easy makeover with our Folksy Fat Quarter Plant Cozy. Transform your basic planter pots with these boho-inspired cozies that use fat eighths, fat quarters, and even fabric scraps to make unique planter wraps to show off your plants.
Get the little ones into the Halloween spirit with our Jolly Jack-O’-Lantern Cinched Treat Bag. Or make the Scattered Leaves Fall Quilt Block to start mapping out your next big quilt project. Or make our beginner-friendly Up and Down Mini Quilt that’s perfect for using precuts. It makes a great wall hanging or even a table topper!
