Before getting started, you’ll need to make sure you download a copy of the Quilt installer.
The Universal download will work on any computer with Java properly installed – but if you’re on Windows, and you’d rather just use the Java installation that comes with Minecraft, then you can use the Windows download.
If you’re not sure which to pick, just install Java and use the Universal download.
Once you have a copy of the Quilt installer downloaded, follow these steps:
- If you haven’t already, download a copy of the Minecraft launcher from the Minecraft website, and install it
- If you have the Minecraft launcher open, close it before continuing
- Find the Quilt installer you downloaded and run it
- Ensure that you have the Client tab selected
- Select the version of Minecraft you wish to install Quilt for
- Select the version of the Quilt loader you’d like to use
- Click the Install button
Assuming you left the Generate profile box checked, you’ll notice that a new Quilt installation will have been created for you. Otherwise, you can click on the Installations tab at the top and create a new one, picking the new Quilt entry from the Version dropdown.
That’s all there is to it - install some mods, launch your new installation, and have fun playing!

- Open the Minecraft Launcher and click on the Installations tab
- Hover your mouse cursor over the Quilt installation you’d like to add mods to
- Click on the button that looks like a folder icon
