The Quilting Tools I’m Most Grateful For

With Thanksgiving this week I thought it would be fun to share the quilting tools I’m most grateful for.

First my sewing machine. From the moment I received it as a wedding gift from my parents almost 32 years ago. I’ve loved it. I literally did a big old happy dance. My sweet hubby was not nearly as excited.

Now while I don’t really like cutting I am ever so thankful for the tools I have that make it easier. My Accuquilt Go cutter and dies saves me so much time. It keeps my wrist from hurting when I have a lot of cutting to do. Get 15% off with pre black Friday saving. Just in case you don’t have one or you are looking to add a few dies. My favorite dies are the strip dies and the multiple half square triangles. They make busting through your scraps a breeze.

While my Go is fabulous it can’t do all my cutting. So I’m thankful for my rotary cutter and mat. Along with my Cutting Gizmo. This handy tool make cutting my chain piecing a breeze. It’s quick, easy and safe.

I’m also thankful for my design wall. My sons made it for me for Christmas many years ago. It has brought me hours of joy! I love to sew and throw what I create on it. So thankful the design wall. Even more thankful for these fine young men.

I could go on and on but will end with one final tool I’m very grateful for. My fabric! From yardage to bits I love it all! Build your fabric stash with great deals at the Fat Quarter Shop.

What quilting tool are you most grateful for?

    I don’t have an AccuQuilt or a large design wall, but I do agree with you on the other tools. I also can’t live without my little 6″ x 9″ cutting mat that sits by my sewing machine, along with the 28mm rotary cutter and Creative Grids 1.5″ x 6.5″ ruler. I use that trio often while piecing. Of course, I suppose I should put my seam ripper in the mix, too – unfortunately – haha!

    I’d say my sewing machines also rank #1 on my thankful list with the rotary cutter coming in closely behind. Happy Thanksgiving!
