Quilting Supplies

The following is a list of common materials that you will need and want when.

Batting – This is the filler and middle layer of most quilts.  We break down what each batting is and used for.  There’s a page for cotton, polyester, and the blended batting of the two.  Wool batting is great for the cold months, but our favorite of them all is bamboo.

Fabric – What else are your quilts going to be made out of?  Perhaps flannel?

Thread – Can’t get stitchin’ without it.

Machine needles – You’ll be stuck if you don’t have them, but which ones to use?
