The Fabric Maverick says... Have you got the right stuff?
My husband used to die when I would go to Home Depot or Lowes and drag home something that needed to be assembled. " I'm not putting this together!" he would say. It was never my intention for him to assemble my book case or whatever. I like to assemble things and I did assemble them! Except for the barbecue grill. What I did learn from all my assembly work was that using the right tools make things go much easier and faster. Sewers soon learn that lesson also.
A beginning quilter soon realizes that having the right equioment will make her sewing so much more enjoyable! From my experience I would suggest the following tools:
1. Rotary cutter
2. Rotary mat
5. Seam ripper
6. Sewing machine
9. 6'' x 24'' ruler
With these simple tools, you are ready to begin quilting.
Good Luck and Happy St. Patrick's Day
