Do you need some fun and unique gifts ideas for the quilters in your life? In this gift guide for quilters, you will find lots of inspiration!
My mom, an avid quilter, helped me compile this list. It includes things that she already has and uses regularly for her quilting along with a few things that are on her quilting wish list.
Gift Ideas for Beginning Quilters:
- Self healing cutting mat, a cutting ruler, and a rotary blade cutter – This will help your new quilter cut fabric with precision and ease.
- Fabric cutting scissors – Every quilter NEEDS a good pair of fabric scissors!
- Pinking shears – Pinking shears cut the fabric in a sawtooth pattern, reducing fraying.
- Seam ripper – No quilter wants to need one, but all do on occasion!
- Pins – A new quilter will need pins to hold their fabric together before sewing.
Gift Ideas for All Quilters:
- Sheep pin cushion – This is just adorable – who doesn’t love sheep?
- Quilting templates – If your quilter likes to machine quilt her own creations, they will love these! Be sure to choose ones that will work with her sewing machine!
- Quilting ruler handle – This suctions right onto your quilting ruler, creating a handle.
- Wool pressing mat – Perfect for pressing seams – you can iron both sides at the same time!
- Portable cutting & pressing station – this is perfect for quilters who like to work on the go!
- Quilt design wall – If you are handy, you could definitely make one of these for your quilter! Itreally helps the design process because you can easily arrange and rearrange blocks until you get the look you like.

Stocking Stuffer Ideas for Quilters:

- Quilting gloves – These provide better control when machine quilting a project.
