Sewing and quilting notions are essential tools that quilters need to make beautiful quilts, table runners, and other projects. Some of the most important tools are Creative Grids Rulers, which allows quilters to cut their fabric with precision and accuracy. These rulers are available in different sizes and shapes, making them ideal for various quilting projects. Along with rulers, quilters also need rotary cutters, replacement blades and rotary cutting mats, patchwork pins, and scissors to cut their fabric. You will of course need thread as well. We highly recommend two brands of 50 wt 100% cotton thread, Aurifil and Sulky. All 50 wt cotton thread can be seen here.
Applique is a popular technique in quilting. Using the Wafer Lightbox in conjunction with applique pressing mats results in a wonderful combination allowing quilter's to pre-assemble their shapes before moving them onto the background. and quilters need applique mats, applique tools, fusible webbing such as Heat n Bond, and hand embroidery needles to create beautiful applique designs. Clover notions are popular among quilters for their quality and versatility. They offer a range of quilting tools, including pins, seam rippers, and marking pens, pencil and chalk.
Batting is another essential quilting notion, and quilters use it as a layer between the top and bottom layers of their quilts. As we all know, every quilter, needs a pin cushion. Ground walnut shells are sometimes added to a pin cushion to create a heavier weight so the pin cushion stays in place while pins are being taken in an out. We even offer Ground Walnut Shells with Lavender which contain real lavender buds and lavender oil imported from France.
Before fabric is ever cut apart with a rotary cutter and Creative Grids Ruler, it's important to press the fabric with an Oliso iron, Panasonic iron or another brand of iron as you prefer. These irons work best in combination with a wool pressing mat or ironing board. Once that's accomplished, then the quilter can use rotary cutter, mat and ruler to cut precisely cut their quilt fabric.
In conclusion, quilting and sewing notions are a must-have for any quilter looking to create beautiful and professional-looking projects. From Creative Grids Rulers and rotary cutters to batting and fusible webbing, these tools make it easier for quilters to create precise cuts, beautiful applique designs, and seamless finishes. Whether you're a beginner or an experienced quilter, having the right tools and notions will make quilting more enjoyable and result in quilts you'll be proud to display.
