I’ve written reviews on some of the larger items we use as quilters but there are lots of other tools and notions that can be useful. Here are commonly used tools for quilting and the best place to purchase them
Quilting Materials Supplies
Clover Wonder Clips (100pc pack) $59.99
Wondor Clips are particularly good for holding binding in place while sewing and have 1/4″ and 1/2″ seam markings.
They can be used in place of pins for all sewing related tasks. They can also be used for card craft and knitting tasks where you need to hold pieces together.
They’re easy to see if you drop one and it’s also easy to see them on your project.
Even if you have arthritis in your hands they are easy to operate, easier that pins.
I LOVE CLOVER WONDER CLIPS!
Wrist Cushion Clover Wonder Clips $13.99
To match the previous item this cushion attaches to the wrist for a convenience when working with Clover Wonder Clips. Made of foam it is soft and comfortable but durable.
No more aching fingers trying to finger press or getting up and down to use the iron!

Another nifty idea, storage for all your bobbins. You can have the bobbin you need at your fingertips. Snap and stack into the 3 1/4″ organizer. No more rummaging about in your sewing box, tangled threads everywhere!

I didn’t know quilting could be so involved. My dad used to make quilts out of our old clothes, (2 brothers and 5 sisters) we had an endless supply of material and a ton of fond memories. Do you know where you can find some of the old fashioned “quilting tables” my mom had one years ago, but she doesn’t have it anymore. I miss those nights around that table. They meant so much to all of us.
Thanks for the information…Janith
What lovely memories to have of your dad making quilts. I haven’t seen the old fashioned quilting tables, these days many people use a cutting mat on top of a normal table. You can get also special tops to put on ironing boards now, marked with grids.
Did you manage to keep any of the quilts your Dad made?
