She recommends using perle cotton for definition and ease of quilting, especially when starting out. Sarah does an excellent job of demonstrating all the essentials of hand quilting, providing many unique tips along the way.
The tools and supplies Sarah uses can be acquired using the links below:
- 12″ Quilting Hoop
- 14″ Quilt Hoop
- 18″ Quilting Hoop
- Perle 8 Cotton Thread
- Open Sided Thimble
- John James Pebbles Embroidery Needles

If you’ve struggled with hand quilting in the past, be sure to give Sarah’s methods a try. Once you master her techniques you can switch to regular quilting thread, if you like. Practice a bit to get used to the smaller needles and thinner thread.
Sarah is an excellent and popular instructor with innovative ideas. We’re looking forward to taking her Big Techniques from Small Scraps online quilting class on Craftsy (learn more here), where she also covers her hand quilting technique.
