This is a Maxis Recolour which means that it is a recolour of an item that already exists in your game. Please check the Expansion pack requirements to see which game pack it recolours.

This custom content if it is not clothing, may require a seperate download to work properly. This is available at Colour Enable Package (CEP) by Numenor.

Whether as a hobby or for income, Sims fom FreeTime can make quilts, but with the existing three colour options, they could not get spectacular results. I set out to change this.

In the zip you'll find 12 recolours for the quilt sims can make on the sewing machine. This also means that you will not see the recolours in game until a sim has made at least one quilt (it is then designable and you can view/delete recolours as normal).

If you like, do not enlarge the attached thumbnails - let it be a surprise.

I am also including a fix for the mapping of this quilt. Without the fix, the above quilt will look like this:

Thank you, HugeLunatic, for helping me make the fix!

Files are Compressorized and clearly labelled.
Installation: both fix and recolours go in the Downloads folder.

Sewing machine and some deco in above picture are by Sandy at AroundTheSims.
Most of the deco items are from Cocomama's Quilt Shop.

A note: I would prefer these textures to remain exclusive to the sewable quilt. I plan to make further quilts - suggestions are welcome.

You must have the expansion or stuff packs listed below installed to use this custom content. Please see the post text for any exceptions.

Theses are gorgeous. I'm still mad that legal issues prevented Mac versions of Free Time and Apt. Life from being made. I would love to have this.

Nice! There certainly weren't enough textures beforehand, but this will help. Thank you!

Thank you, thank you, thank you! It has always bugged me that there were only three colour options available for my quilt-making Sims. Your textures all look wonderful! I foresee a virtual quilt epidemic hitting my 'hoods in the near future.

Oh, and THANK YOU for compressing them and saving me from having to do it myself.

Thank you very much for doing this. I really wish they had made the pattern for the quilt available for the bedding so that you could have a Sim make a quilt and then it would be like they are using the quilt on the bed. I don't guess you could do something like that. Please Maybe with sugar on top.

Hey I was just wondering where you got that modern looking sewing machine? I've been trying to find one for ages.
