Tools for Machine Quilting
Before you begin any quilting project, collect the tools and materials you’ll need in one easy-to-access place. Below is a list of general supplies.
Darning, free-motion quilting, or hopper foot: This sewing machine attachment is used for free-motion quilting. You may find one in your machine’s accessory kit. If not, know the model and brand name of your machine when you go to purchase one.
Safety pins: Use these pins to hold together a quilt’s layers during quilting.
Table or other large work surface that’s level with your machine bed: Your quilt will need the support.Thread: Look for quilting thread made of either 100% cotton or a cotton-polyester blend. For quilting that blends into the background, use fine nylon or polyester monofilament thread.
Walking or even-feed foot: This sewing machine attachment helps you keep long, straight quilting lines smooth and pucker-free.
