Getting Started with Quilting

Lately, a few people ask about getting started with quilting, so I’ve put together a short list of items you will need to get started. I’ve been quilting since 2006, a wonderful friend showed me how to cut up fabric and assemble it into a work of art! I love to quilt! Try it!

A simple Singer sewing machine with do the job. There are fancier machines, but try quilting to see if you like the hobby before purchasing a larger more expensive sewing machine.
Buy quality self-healing mats, grid rulers, and rotary cutters.
I recommend using a small iron with a steam setting and a mat in your work space.
You will also need pins, fabric scissors and a seam ripper. You can get a fancy cutter tool, but again, my recommendation is to stick with the basics when starting out.
