When first starting out on quilting projects, the choice of quilting tools can seem quite bewildering, but you will soon learn what the basic tools are that can help you to achieve great results, and which tools are suited for special projects.
What are the basic tools I will need for quilting?
Here is our guide to some of the basic tools you will find useful when quilting:
Rotary Cutter: Learning to sue a rotary cutter is essential if you want to speed up your cutting, as it allows you to cut through various layers at once and get accurate results. When choosing a rotary cutter, think about what you will be cutting. A 60-mm blade is great for thick fabric, while a slender 28-mm blade makes cutting intricate patterns easy. A 45-mm blade is good for all-round versatility. Always buy a rotary cutter from a well-known manufacturer and make sure you keep the blade as sharp as possible. At Spotlight, you can also find replacement blades for many rotary cutters. Always keep cutters away from kids.
Cutting mat: Cutting mats protect the surface you cut on and the material they're made of keeps the cutter blade sharp. For home sewing, buy a 24" x 36" mat if possible, and if you have space remember that larger mats are a great choice. If you are travelling to quilting classes, you may want to choose a smaller mat.
Ruler: A transparent rule provides continuous accuracy that is necessary for measuring and cutting perfect squares, strips, triangles, or any shape for your quilt. Some rulers have highlighted seam allowances, which can be useful, as well as clearly defined angle lines marked at30°
