Quilt Shopping List
From Quilting For Dummies, 2nd Edition by Cheryl Fall
Much of the fun of starting a new quilt comes from planning the shopping trip to get the supplies you need. Even if you’re using fabric scraps you already have, you may need to find some complementary material, and you’ll probably need backing and batting at least. Use the following list as a reminder of all the ingredients that go into a finished quilt:
- Quilt pattern of choice
- Fabrics for your quilt
- Batting for the filler
- Backing fabric that’s 2–3 inches larger all around than the finished quilt size
- All-purpose thread for piecing and assembly
- Specialty threads for appliqué projects
- All-purpose or monofilament thread for machine quilting
- Fabric scissors (dressmakers’ shears are perfect)
- Rotary cutter, ruler, and self-healing mat for rotary-cut patterns
- Thimbles and finger protectors for hand quilting
- Quilting hoop or stand for hand quilting
- Walking or even-feed foot for machine quilting
- Free motion foot (darning foot) for free motion quilting
- Templates for hand or machine quilting
- Enough bias quilt binding to go completely around the quilt plus 6 extra inches for overlap
- Quilters’ pins
- Glue stick for holding appliqués in place
- Seam ripper and needle threader, just in case
