Gift Ideas for Quilters
One day my dad asked me what he should get my mom for her birthday, and I told him about this new fabric line from Cotton and Steel coming out that he could pre-order a fat quarter bundle of. He thought that was a good idea, and on her birthday, he presented it to her calling it the “Iron and Steel fabric” we thought she’d like. A for effort, right? Ha, anyway months later and he still says Iron and Steel no matter how much we correct him.
So if your special someone needs help picking a gift for you this year or you need some ideas for your crafty friends, here are a few items I’ve rounded up for Valentines Day.
Here are a few gift ideas for that special quilter in your life!
We quilters, always want fabric. Here are a new fabric collections we’re loving right now. My best advice for you is to pick up a Fat Quarter (FQ) Bundle, Layer Cake, Jelly Roll or Charm Pack. (Those terms funny terms are just descriptions for how the fabric is cut and how much fabric is included. If you’re in doubt, pick a fat quarter bundle or layer cake.)
I recommend picking a recently released fabric line or a bundle of solids. Solids might sound boring, but there are many different types of solid bundles out there. Pick an interesting one, or one in their favorite colors. Other suggestions would be a low volume or Cotton and Steel Basics bundle.
Still overwhelmed? Get a gift card to a quilt shop and let them pick out their own fabric.
