Did you know…across the Atlantic Ocean, Walter Hunt made a machine with an eye-pointed needle that created a locked stitch with a second thread from underneath. Hunt’s machine, devised in 1834, was never patented. Elias Howe is credited as the inventor of the sewing machine, designed and patented his creation in 1846.

Our “Food For Thought” Sew Along is all about sweet treats, but we promise they won’t ruin your diet. Our sweet treats include free applique patterns created by four of our Therm O Web fabric designers.

Food for Thought Quilt Block Sew Along

All the blocks are 10 ½” x 10 ½” unfinished and can be made with fat quarters and/or scraps. Free patterns will be available with a list of supplies and instructions. You can make one of the projects or all four…it’s up to you! We’d love to have you join us in this sew along and once you finish your blocks, please share them on Instagram or Facebook with the tag #thermoweb.

Making our “Food For Thought” blocks are so easy when using EZ Print Lite Sheets or Heat n Bond Lite, Iron-on Adhesive. The EZ Print Lite Sheets use an inkjet printer so there’s no tracing. If you’d rather trace your designs, Heat n Bond Lite, Iron-on Adhesive is the way to go. Both products have a protective paper that easily peels off when you’re ready to apply the designs.

We think you’ll love all the sweet designs for this sew along!
