The Sims Freeplay- Hobbies: Quilting


Senior sims can complete the quilting hobby once you complete the In Stitches Quest. Once you complete this quest to begin this hobby you need to buy the quilting kit from the promotions r us store and place it in one of your sims houses.

I cannot find it in my home store to place it? You need to look in your inventory under the hobby and career items section

I cannot place the quilting kit, it says its locked/ limited item, what do I do? You will have this problem if you try and place it from the new items tab, look in your inventory instead to be able to place the quilting kit in one of your sims houses.

You can buy as many quilting kits as you want so you can have as many seniors sims as you want completing this hobby

Once placed tap on it and select the option:

  • Work on Quilt- 4 hours

After the time has passed come back and click the exclamation mark above your sims head to find one of the quilt collectibles. Every time your senior sim works on their quilt their quilting hobby skill level up percentage will increase, once you reach 100% you will level up, there are 6 levels. You need to reach level 6 to be able to unlock all of the quilting collectibles, once unlocked you will be able to find them.

The table below shows the level up percentage:

This may change in future updates

 LEVEL  Work on Quilt
1-2 249%
2-3 83%
3-4 41%
4-5 24%
5-6 19%

For example you would need to work on the quilt twice to reach level 3 from level 2

NOTE: it says 249% but you will start from 0% at level 2

The next table shows you for each level what quilting collectibles you unlock (so you can then find those ones too) and also the level up reward that a second and future sims will receive when they level up in this hobby:

1 Patchwork Mismatcher In Bloom, The Enternal Struggle and Rigorous Splendor are unlocked in the hobby collection
2 Supervised Stitcher Blue Overalls are now unlocked in the hobby collection 250XP
3 Fabric Handler Yule be Black and Trade Secret are now unlocked in the hobby collection 500XP
4 Quality Quilter The Architect and Brown Fury are now unlocked in the hobby collection S750
5 Sewing’s Secret Weapon True Believer and All the Kings Men are now unlocked in the hobby collection 10,000 Town Value
6 The Needle Master The Telltale Heart and Alfs Deceit are now unlocked in the hobby collection.

You can now complete the collection!


NOTE: only the first sim completing this hobby needs to get to level 6 to unlock all the collectibles, future sims will be able to find any collectible even if they are only on level 1 in this hobby!

You won’t find a new collectible each time, you will get repeats, if this happens just keep going, you will find them eventually! If it is still taking too long you can use the lucky spin on the row where you cannot find the item, this will cost LPs, when you click on the LP button it will clear the row and give you a random collectible on that row so you aren’t guaranteed a new item (you will get back any other collectibles you already had in that row) Need to earn some LPs to use the lucky spin?


The completed quilting collection is shown below, once you complete the collection you need to click ‘start a new collection/start a new quilt’ at the top of the hobby collection screen, this clears the board so you can complete the collection again to earn more rewards (you will only get the option to restart the hobby collection when you have completed the collection):

You will earn XPs when you complete a row in the hobby but to complete the collection you need to find all 12 of the collectibles

The rewards for completing this collection are a chair, a couch, a bed and 3LP:

  • The first time you complete this collection you unlock the lazy patch chair (costs S10,000 and can be found in the living room section)
  • The second time you unlock the patchpouri couch (costs S12,500 and again can be found in the living room section)
  • The third time you unlock the quiltinator 5000 which is a bed (costs S15,000 and can be found in the bedroom section)

  • From the fourth time onwards each time you complete the collection you will earn 3LP
