The Fabric Maverick says... Have you got the right stuff?

March 17, 2009

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

3. Fabric

4, Thread

5. Seam ripper

6. Sewing machine

7. Scissors

8. Iron

9. 6'' x 24'' ruler

With these simple tools, you are ready to begin quilting.

Good Luck and Happy St. Patrick's Day
