    I bet this has been asked before, but one more time.

    I need to order some needles. I am not very good about knowing what size to use when. Can anyone help me out here? Is there a good universal size to buy for more piecing and machine quilting on cottons.
    Thanks. Quilter1234

    You're very welcome. It was advice given to me by a very experienced friend and I'm glad to pass it on! :D
