Self-Healing Cutting Mat
A cutting mat is almost indispensible for quilting. The “self-healing” type last longer and minimize the effect old cuts have on your work. One with a grid reduces the need for rulers. Marked 45 degree lines help, especially with binding.
Cutting matts come in all sizes, but a 24″ by 36″ size is good for most purposes. They do not last forever, but last many months depending on use.

Quilting pins are longer than regular sewing pins and have a larger head. Ideal for holding multiple layers of fabric, loose weaves, synthetic furs, plush velvets and bulky fabrics.
TIP: Replace your pins periodically! They get dull and do not go through fabric as easily as when new.
