FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS ABOUT THIS QUEST

please read before asking

I have missed this quest! Why can’t I start it yet?
You cannot miss main quests they have to be completed in order. You need to complete all previous quests (list can be found here) and reach level 25 before you can start this quest

Can I complete this quest even though I have passed level 25?
Yes, you just need to complete all previous quests then this quest will start automatically

The life dreams and legacies is the next quest but I don’t want my sims to die, what should I do?
Stay on this quest, if you don’t complete this quest your sims will not age and die
You can stay on this quest for as long as you want

Read this post if you want to know more about Life Dreams and Legacies

Why are there two versions of this quest?
Some quests have two versions, as when the makers have updated the times for quests they haven’t updated them on all devices so some players still get the old times

Does a senior have to complete these goals?
No, an adult can

How do I send my sim to the park?
Go to the park and click on the whistle next to a sim who isn’t busy on the simtracker,this post explains more about the simtracker

Pizza is locked, how do I cook it?
Your sim needs to be level 2 at cooking and have a microwave at that house

How do I give pizza to another sim?
Just click on a sim and select give pizza

What do you mean when you say a goal can be started early?
Any goal that you can normally do can be started early because you will have access to it and any goal that you can’t normally do you will have to wait until you get the goal to be able to complete it.
The tip with this method is to put the sim doing that action early in a different house that you cannot go to until you get that goal or it will not work

How do I place an easel in my house once I have brought it from the promotions r us store?
You can find it in your inventory under career and hobby items

I don’t get the option to draw out a chess game, why?
Are you using an adult sim and the chess board in the park?

Do I need two sims to draw out a chess game?
No, you only need one

Why don’t I have the option to high five another sim?
Your sims need to be friends to get this option

I don’t have a car or the car dealership built yet, can I get a car without it?
Yes you can build a house that comes with a car, these can be found in my House Guides Part One and Part Two

Why do blue footprints appear when I try to use an item?
Blue footprints appear when your sim cannot access an item you want them to use, you need to either rotate the item or move an item that has been placed in front of it so they can use it

What do I get if I complete this quest in the time limit?
A teddy bear

What happens if I don’t complete in the time limit, can I still finish this quest?
Yes you have to finish it to unlock the quilting hobby before you can move onto the next quest

I didn’t complete in the time limit, can I restart the quest?
No, you cannot redo quests

Can I still get the prize if I don’t complete in the time limit?
No, the only way to get the limited time prizes is by completing the quest in the time limit

I don’t like this quest! Can I just skip it?
No, you have to complete this quest before you can move onto the next one

Some times are slightly different on my game, why is this?
Times may vary depending on the star rating of the item you are using, as the higher star rating an item has the quicker you will complete a goal

Some times are really off/ different goals show for me, why is this?
This will be because the quest has been updated recently, I try my best to keep these posts up to date but it is difficult as I cannot redo every quest each time the game is updated. If you notice any changes please let me know so I can update the post


The next quest, Life Dreams and Legacies introduces us to personalities, orbs, automatic ageing and death!

NOTE: if you don’t want them to die then do not finish the in stitches quest

  1. Would it be a good idea to leave this quest unfinished (because I don’t want to get to the next one), until there until there comes a time where they add a new quest that can only be unlocked if the life dreams and legacies quest is completed? The reason for that is if I were to end up doing the next quest I want to finish it on time. Or should I just finish both quests? It seems like to much work to stop sims from automatically ageing then dying so I kind of want to just leave everything the way it is.
    You’re totally awesome by the way ~

    • Yes stop before you finish this quest then when a new quest starts (as long as it appears before the life dreams and legacies quest) you can finish this quest then start the new one and stop before you finish that one so you don’t have to go on to the ageing quest.
      thanks!

  2. Is there any difference between the patchwork teddy and the one we just got for the New Year’s quest? Before I complete the quest, I’m trying to decide if it’s worth trying to complete on time when I already have one… aside from the price, that is. Thanks for your blog! It actually makes these quests enjoyable rather than stressful.

    • Do you mean the living teddy bear we got for the christmas quest?
      Yes they are very different, the patchwork teddy is a teddy for toddlers to play with, it isn’t alive.
      you’re welcome!

  3. when you finally get to the 19hr drive to the quilt fair, I suggest (if you have nothing better to do) to follow your car around for a bit (an hour went by really fast for me lol) and I got almost 20 lps in under two hours, it averaged to about 1 LP every 5 minutes, it could be because I was driving in the “luxury car” but I was getting them very frequent it was unbelievable! just thought I’d share for anyone with some spare time on their hands lol

  4. Hi there 🙂

    I love your posts! And I noticed people in December didn’t have to cook & give pizza, but I have just done it and had to do the pizza haha. I’ve just updated as well!

  5. For me, after the “ask about the serene gaze” i had to make pizza -40 min, now I’m supposed to “give a slice to a sim” not sure how to do that, but right now i had a sim “call to meal”

    • It would be great if they stopped changing these quests, those goals were in it, then they removed them, now they are back!
      Get a sim to click on another sim and it will be an interaction between them

  6. I dont know how to share my pizza. Im clicking on grab a plate and call to meal but i dont know what else to do because there are no other options other than clean up.

  7. When I had to “search for quilting online” it took me 5 hrs and 30 min with a 3-star computer. Just thought you should know so you can update the quest.
    Thanks for a great blog, I look at it for every quest! 🙂

  8. Hi, I was just wondering if you have any advice which stages of the quest can be started in advance so they are ready to collect as soon as the previous stage is done? If there are stages like that, it might be useful to include them in the general write-up (unless that is too complicated!) Thanks for all the advice, you are my “go to girl” for Sims help!

    • I will be updating the posts when I redo the quests to include what goals can be started early but any task that you can usually do can be started early, so cook pizza and grow potatoes.
      You’re welcome!

  9. I can’t cook pizza because I haven’t done the bread winner quest yet. Now I’m stucked at in stitches quest. Please help me 😭😭😭

  10. On the quilting mama quest, 2 seconds after I told my sims to do that, I cancel it accidentally. But it counted as success. I was suprised but also happy becoz I didnt have to wait for 12 hours. 😀

  11. To add to what Katrina said, when you get to the part where you’re driving to the fair, I recommend sending all your Sims with cars out on that task. Clicking on the cars gives you a chance to win LPs–lots and lots of them if you have several cars in the road at the same time! It’s far more valuable than the opportunity to buy an expensive teddy bear.

  12. Do you have 5 or 6 days to do this hobby? At the beginning of the post you say 6, but then at the end you say 5. I am confused. I need to know if I should save some LPs to complete in time.
    Thanks!!

  13. I finished the questi. I have looked everywhere for the quilting to buy and can’t seem to find it, any suggestions?

    • Do you mean the quilting kit? The one you brought in the quest will be in the inventory in the hobby tab, if you want to buy a new one you have to buy it from the promotions r us store and again it will go into your inventory.

  14. If I complete this quest because I really want a pet bird, is there any way to put off the life dreams and legacies quest from starting? I would like to do the salsa and royals quests first. Thank you for all your hard work with all these posts.

  15. You said that if I didnt want my sims to age and die, I should not finish this quest. But i dont have a deadline anymore! So now I HAVE TO finish this on to come to the next quest. But I dont want my sims to die! What should I do???

  16. I didn’t have to search quilting online! It skipped that (not complaining I was running short on time anyway) but do you know why it did that?

  17. Hi! I’m a little bit confused about in the stitches quest and life & dreams. In the stitches quest sims dies automatically or all the dying stuff is for the life and legacies quest? Thanks

  18. Can you do the quilting hobby without finishing this quest? I want to unlock the hobby but I don’t want my sims to die.

  19. Apologies for the stupid question. If I do not start this quest will the Life Dreams and Legacies Quest ever be unlocked/started? I want to complete all the levels but never have my sims die – I’m rather attached. I don’t really care for completing quests.

  20. Hello, love your work. Is there anyway I could do this quest and just not do the next one? I want to finish this quest and not the other cause i don’t want my sims to die.

  21. Hi. Just wondering…if I start the life and legacies quest, does the age controller automatically starts? Because I would like to finish the quilitng quest, but not have my sims age automatically. Unless the age controller starts after the last quest is finished, then I can finish the quilting quest, right?

  22. The bird illustrated magazine read time is now 1 day. I just did the Baby Steps update before i started this quests. I wish I hadnt updated it yet😔. And i love ur blog. Thank u for all that u do👏

  23. If I don’t have a car, and haven’t built the dealership yet, will I need to for this quest, or is there an alternate way to get to the quilt fair? (i.e. Taking a taxi)

  24. What do you mean that if we don’t want our sims to die then don’t finish the in stitches quest? Does that mean we won’t be able to build or do other things that require the Life Dreams and Legacies quest to be completed, like building the dog park and the beach on the mystery island?
    Also, thank you so much for your blog. You have no idea how helpful it’s been since I started playing sims! 🙂

    • If you complete in stitches the life dreams quest will begin and your sims will automatically age, if you don’t want them to age do not finish this quest
      But yes you need to complete the life dreams quest to unlock the beach, pet park, carnival and arcade
      You’re welcome!

  28. So I finished the quest before it which was the bird feeding one and I was ready for the next quest but it never came. It’s not even an option to do it so I’m afraid it’ll never come back again. Do you know anything about this?

  29. Why do I need to not finish the quest if I don’t want my sims to die in the next quest?? I’m so confused lol x

    • The next quest is Life Dreams and Legacies, if you start this quest your sims will automatically age and die, if you don’t want that to happen don’t complete this quest, if you don’t mind just ignore that and continue.

  30. Ok, so i read the comments, i understand that you can create a new sim once one dies, i have two questions. One, once one sim dies, is the deceased sims house then vacant and i can move a newly created sim in there? And two, do you know at what rate the sims age?
    Thanks for all of the effort you put into this blog!
