    Help Please! I would appreciate any tips and advice on using invisible thread to free motion fused applique leaf shapes to quilt border. Do it put the invisible thread into the bobbin also? Any advice on setting tension would be helpful too. Thanks in advance!

    I'm toying with my Hexie quilt ideas while sewing them together. I'm thinking of enlarging the hexagons from 2.2 inches to 5 inches then cutting them in half so there will be a seam down the center of them. Maybe a 6 inches or larger - would look better?

    I love making hexies there is something zen about hand sewing them.

    I would have never dreamed I would be hand quilting and enjoying ...

  9. What kind of needle should I use?

    by , 08-21-2013 at 05:23 PM
    Hello Team Quilters one and all... I come seeking information on what would be the most accurate sewing machine needle for the Antique White Rotary Model #77 Sewing Machine. I was so excited when I found this in its own original box, original book, all the attachments, foot pedal, runs good ( after I cleaned it a little and oiled and vaselined it according to the book that came with it. ). I noticed a couple of times where someone mentioned the 15 x 1 needles on this site for some machines. Where ...
