Quilter's Moonshine Free Printable

Elizabeth Chappell

I have heard a lot about Quilter's Moonshine lately.  What is this, you ask?  Well, it DOES include Vodka, but it's NOT for drinking.

Quilter's Moonshine is a DIY spray starch! I found a simple and easy recipe from this blog post. I will be the first to tell you that spray starch DOES MAKE A DIFFERENCE when quilting. Your fabric becomes stiffer, which makes cutting more accurate, and therefore your corners meet up.  

I spray my fabric with starch, then iron it, then cut it and sew.  It's not as helpful to spray and iron after cutting your fabric.

I loved the idea of making my own spray starch.  I know exactly what's in it, it's a great price, and I love adding a few drops of my favorite essential oils.  (My favorite is orange with peppermint.)  If you want to print this off, you can keep it for yourself, give it as a gift at a quilting retreat, or simply give it to a good Quilty friend!  I hope you enjoy making your own Quilter's Moonshine! If you do try it, let me know what you think of it!

  • How long will this keep?


  • I think it has to be potato vodka.


  • Do you need the vodka

  • Just curious…what does the vodka do in this recipe? I’m hoping it will keep some fabrics from fraying so much.


  • Vicki – I have added a link to click, and once in that new page, you can download the image, or print from that page. Hope that helps!
