5 Must Have Quilting Notions You Can Find on Amazon
Let’s be honest, we all love Amazon especially the Prime shipping they offer! Personally, I have shopped their site for a long time. As a longtime quilter I have been on a journey to find some amazing quilting notions to use in my projects, and below I have some recommendations.
I’ll be honest, some quilting notions are flops and others are incredible and get daily usage in my studio.
I have tried many different rotary blades, quilting pins + clips, and threads and have come to use several products consistently. Every brand has its own quality and price point, however, I believe I have found the “sweet spot” for quilting notions and affordability. Because, believe me, the last thing I want to do is spend $$$ on quilting products that are not useful for most quilting projects or there is a better and cheaper alternative product.
Olfa 60mm Rotary Blade + Self-Healing Cutting Mat 18″x 24″
I hope this basic guide is useful to you and provides some good product recommendations to stock in your quilting room!
On all the links below I do get #comissionsearned on products, I really appreciate your support if you think these notions may work for you! I personally use all of these products in my quilting studio and have found them to make my life much much easier!
1. Clover Jumbo Wonder Clips
An absolute joy, these clear and green clips are extra large and PERFECT for clipping and rolling binding. These are nearly essential anytime I am doing binding or doing machine quilting.
Also check out these small and colorful Wonder Clips for piecing!
2. The Original Thread Cutter by Sunflower Quilts
This cute little thread cutter is amazing for any chain piecing you may do. Chain piecing is the act of sewing one block after another on a domestic sewing machine without clipping any threads. You can then use this tool to cut the thread between the blocks QUICKLY!
3. Dritz Dual Purpose Marking Pen, Blue and Purple
As the best marking pen offered on the market with two different types of disappearing ink in one pen! The Blue Mark-B-Gone side is a water-soluble ink. The Purple side disappears in the air and is water soluble. Having these two options makes this pen extremely effective and perfect for quilting and sewing.
4. Aurifil Mako Cotton Thread 50WT – White
This is the gold-standard for quilting cotton thread. I purchase both the individual spools and the three pack offered by Amazon. This thread performs incredibly in my Bernina 750QE and has ran through all my previous quilting machines awesomely.
5. Dahle Vantage Self-Healing Cutting Mat – 18″x 24″
As a recent purchase of mine this is the Dahle Self-Healing Cutting Mat, I have found that it out performs my Olfa Self-Healing Cutting Mat everyday. I was pretty excited for this product as I received it as a Christmas gift. Yay! I am very excited to share this product with you and hope you find it to be as amazing as I have!
I hope this has been helpful! Drop a comment below and let me know what notions work best for you or how you use these in your quilting space.
