Mother's Day is right around the corner and choosing the right gift for one of the most important women in your life can be a challenge. Flowers are wonderful, breakfast in bed is great, but if she’s a quilter, the best gifts are those that help her finish her projects with ease. These gifts top the quilter wishlist, whether you're celebrating a mother who loves to quilt or are the mom with the need to piece.
1. Fabric and Notions are Always a Favorite
Quilters love fabric. They also delight in all of the notions and supplies that are associated with the craft. If you’re unsure what type of fabrics or tools your mother needs, a great alternative is a gift certificate from your local quilting store. Imagine how thrilled your mother will be at your thoughtfulness.
AccuQuilt has Signature Retailers all over the U.S. that would be happy to help you choose the perfect Mother’s Day Gifts. They can also help you if you choose to get a gift certificate.
Add Personalization to the Gift Card: Give your mom a voucher for your time. Quilters enjoy sharing their techniques with others and moms are always happy to spend time with their family, so why not do both at once? Coordinate a day that both you and your mother can take a trip to the quilting store or spend time at the sewing machine together.

3. Get Her the Latest and Greatest Dies
AccuQuilt is continually creating new products that help quilters Cut Time and Quilt More™, which means there are a ton of dies and product options. If you don't know what you're looking for, it can be overwhelming. Lucky for you, we just released three new dies in April and have even more planned if your mom will patiently take an "I owe you". Sign up for our emails, subscribe to our blog or keep your eyes on the new dies page to be the first to know.
Want a safe bet on a real winner? Keep mom current with the gift of die sets. When a GO! Qube Mix & Match Block set is combined with the GO! Qube Companion Sets-Corners and GO! Qube Companion Sets-Angles, your mom will be able to make over 216 block patterns. Choose from five different finished block sizes (6", 8", 9", 10" or 12") and just watch the surprise from mom this Mother’s Day. This collection will make any quilter's dreams come true!
4. Keep Her Organized
Every quilter could use a little more organization, and if your mother is an avid fan of GO! dies, she needs a way to store them. Keep her sewing room clean and organized with die storage solutions from AccuQuilt. These storage solutions come in three sizes and fit perfectly on any shelf or counter. Mom will delight when she sees how compact and stackable they are. It’s a simple and fun gift that she will love!
Take organization a step further: Make Mother's Day all about her by dedicating the day to helping your mom use the storage solutions you purchased. Quilters want an organized area to do their work, but rarely choose cleaning over piecing. With your help, cleaning is less of a chore and more of an event all for her. Use the advice in our sewing room cleaning post for more ideas on how you can make her space a quilter's paradise.
