Basic Tools – Let’s Make a Quilt

I’m going to make a distinction here between tools and supplies. Tools are the things that you’ll use over and over again for all of your quilts – like a sewing machine, iron, and rotary cutters. Supplies are the things that get used up with each quilt, like thread, fusible adhesive, and fabric. I’ll cover these in two different lessons.

We’ll start with tools.

Quilting can be a very expensive hobby – but it doesn’t have to be. Here’s info about all the tools I use every day – with notes about which I think are must-haves and which are optional upgrades. You’ll also find info about maintenance here.

Here are handy links to all the posts about quilting tools and supplies.
