I love and appreciate jeans needles more and more.
They saved my sanity when I quilted with the Aurifil 12wt thick thread and these days I had another nice surprise.
I had to quilt over fusible web appliques; I used Aurifil 50wt thread and a topstitch needle; I tested the thread tension on a small regular sandwich – no appliques. Perfect stitches. Then I started to quilt over the appliques – far away from perfect and lots of skipped stitches. I changed the topstitch needle with a jeans needle and kept all the tension settings intact. Perfect stitching again!
I don’t want to confuse you! This is fusible raw edge applique and…
…a quilting different than the one in the picture below (from the previous post).
And you are right: it’s a cheater cloth!
Are you ready for a new week ?
