The hexagon sphere is finally quilted! I think I need one more week for washing, binding and taking pictures-somewhere outside.
And here is the tip for Quilter’s Favorites.
My favorite needles for (free motion) quilting – Topstitch needles (#100/16 or #90/14). They have a large eye, meaning less chances for the thread to break.
You can see below the difference between an universal needle, a quilting needle (sharp point) and a topstitch needle (big eye).
If the thread keeps breaking I change the needle.
And I always test its point: if it is dull and does not prick or it leaves a scratch on my fingernail it is time to change it.
Have a great weekend,
