Today’s post is a round-up (yeehaw!) of the first ten posts in the Quilter’s Tool Chest series. These are the basic tools that we’d recommend a new quilter or sewer invest in (or be gifted!) when starting out. Not a beginner? Use this as a checklist to see what basic items you might add to your tool chest to help making your quilting and sewing even more successful!
|1. Rotary cutter|
|3. Self-healing cutting mat|
|4. Flat-head pins|
|5. Good quality thread|
|7. Iron with steam|
|8. Reliable sewing machine with both a straight and zig-zag stitch|
|9. Good quality sewing machine needles|
What are some of the basic tools that you keep in your Quilter’s Tool Chest?
All of the above and, I might add, some good marking tools as well. I always tuck a fine lead mechanical pencil into my basic sewing kit that travels w/ me; you might be surprised to learn how indispensible that is! Great series of posts, Laura!

All of those are good notions/gadgets. I also use/need a marking pen or other marking item like chalk. For quilting I like to use gloves. I also use fusible web, freezer paper and plastic for template making, so those are my other needed items.
