Quilter's Gift Guide 2015

Do you have a quilter on your gift list this year?  Finding gifts for others is sometimes the most stressful part of the holidays.  You may know what they like but that doesn't mean you know what they would use.  I have people asking me all the time what I mean by "anything I can use for quilting", so I came up with a gift guide.  You can share it with your friends and family so that they know what to buy you.  If you happen to be shopping for me, yes I would take anything on the guide.

All links are affiliate links.  Purchasing anything via the links costs you nothing but tosses a few pennies into my fabric budget.

Under $5


Ball Point Bodkin - $4.99 These are great tools to have on hand.  It's a tool that you don't use a lot so a quilter is unlikely to purchase it themselves.  A bodkin is used to pull things like elastic through a casing or to turn tubes of fabric. 









 Glow Line Tape - $4.22 This tape is a life saver.  You put it on the back of your ruler to mark your cut line.  You get all three colors so you can actually have three lines marked.  It also gives you a little ridge on the back of your ruler so that you can use it to edge of your fabric with it.








Quilting Point and Creaser - $3.99 You can use this as a stiletto to guide your fabric while you sew.  It can also be used to help push out corners in pillows.  Also if you do applique with fusible that you sew on the back this is a great tool to turn the fabric.









Magnetic Seam Guide - $3.99 If you don't have a quarter inch foot or your struggle to line up your fabric with the edge of your foot these are a life saver.  They attach to the metal plate of your machine and give you a nice long edge to guide your fabric on.







Water Soluble Pen - $3.49 These allow you to draw on your fabric and then wash it right out.  I got one last year for Christmas and have just about used it up.  It's great for drawing out quilting designs, cutting lines, etc.








Under $50

22x22 Square Up Ruler - $40.14  I have the 12x12 ruler but this is my dream square up ruler.  The size doesn't make it well for taking to class but having it at home to use would be a dream come true.  It is also great to just half square triangles.









Quilt Binding Tool - $24.66  You feed your binding strip through the slot and it folds it for you.  You just have to press the binding with your iron.





Portable Cutting and Ironing Station - $29.21 These are so nice to take to a class with you.  Also, if you don't have a lot of room or can't leave your supplies out this is a great solution.








Self Healing Rotating Mat - $31.95  I bought one of these for my husband last year for Christmas.  We fight over it.  There is no better way to trim a block, cut half square triangles, or cut a disappearing block.  I'm really hoping I get one this year for myself.








5 Pack of 45mm Rotary Blade - $12.87 This is the perfect gift ANYTIME.  I've never heard a quilter say, "Oh I have plenty of rotary blades."  These get used up quickly if you do a lot of cutting.  It's always handy to have more on hand.









Over $100

Accuquilt - $499.99 I'd love to have one of these cutting systems.  They are the perfect way to cut up your stash quickly.  Yes there is some fabric waste BUT the time you save pays for that.  This is also wonderful for the quilter who struggles with a rotary cutter.







Aurifil Thread Sampler - $109.85 This is the neutrals set but they have a lot of different sets out there.  Everyone can use neutrals and everyone loves new thread.









Cotton Batting Bolt - $264.52 This is a bolt of Warm and Natural batting.  I would love someone to buy me one of these.


Design Wall - $129.99  Design walls allow you to put your blocks up and walk away.  This one collapses down so you don't have to leave it out.








Electric Quilt 7 - $169.97 This is like the Photoshop of quilting.  You can layout your quilt so you know what it will look like.  You can make quilts from your pictures and also scan in your fabrics so that you know exactly what your quilt will look like.










Fat Quarter Bundle - Prices Vary this one is $175.00  There are tons of fat quarter bundles out there.  I like this one because they are prints but can read as a solid.







Long Arm Juki Sewing Machine - $999.00  This will make you the favorite.  This is the perfect gift for kids to go together to get for mom/dad.
