I need a little advice. I am in a quilting group where we are hand quilting a large quilt together. The fabric is good quality and the batting warm and natural. In all, a beautifully made quilt. My problem is that I am having a hard time with the needle. It doesn't necessarily stick in the fabric layers, it is just very difficult to work the needle. Several other women are having the same problem. We have changed needles, to no avail.
