Get inspired by some of the best quotes about quilting and download our free quilting quotes wall art.

If you’re here you probably already know that quilting is awesome. I know we all feel the same way, I’m not even going to waste any time proving my point.

In fact, quilting is so awesome, we quilters like to remind ourselves and everyone around us just how awesome it is anytime we get the chance. A perfect example is our home decor. Quilted wall hangings? Quilted pillows? Quilts everywhere? Loose thread on the floor? OK, this last one isn’t technically home decor, but it’s still everywhere in a quilter’s home, so I’m going with it.

And of course, wall art! Wall art is such a fun way to add some life to your walls. And if you’re a quilter, you need some funny quilting quotes on your sewing room walls ASAP.

That’s why I thought I’d gather the best quotes about quilting (I am biased, of course) that I’m sure you, as a quilter, will appreciate.

And what’s even better, we chose three – yes, three! – funny quotes about quilting and made these cute printable posters you can print out. Scroll down to the end of the article to get access to the printable quilting quotes right now.
