25 Quilting Products to Ring in the New Year

Jan 03, 2024

Happy New Year, Joyful and Merry Quilter! 

If you've been following me for the last month or so, you probably heard all about my 25 Day Christmas Countdown on YouTube, where each day I pulled a new surprise out of Santa's bag: A discount on a great product, a quilting tip, a pattern, or something else that could add some joy to your quilting experience. And I've said it before, but it's worth repeating: I do not endorse or promote any product that I don't love and use myself!

I wanted to create an easy place for you to reference everything we revealed without having to dig through each video, and a first blog post to kick off 2024 seemed like the perfect place!

So, here's a recap of each day of our 25 Day December Advent. Many of these discounts are still available - but depending on when you read this, some may have expired. You'll find the links to each of these products below their pictures - and remember, some of these have discount codes for you to apply at checkout - so don't miss them! 

Note: Joyful and Merry Quilting often uses affiliate links to recommended products, and may receive minimal sums when you purchase through these links, at NO additional cost to you. You are in no way obligated to use these links. Thank you for your support!

Learn how to quilt it, and even how to bind it. These instructions obviously work for the pillowcase, but they also apply to a quilt!

23. Omnigrid 4in Ultrasharp point Scissors

There's so much to be said for scissors that are SHARP all the way down to the point when quilting!

These Omnigrid Ultrasharp Point Scissors are my favorite - and they are well worth it for your quilting and sewing projects!
