    The darning needle is a wonderful tip. Thank you so much. I am a hand quilter.....oh how I wish my stitches were as beautiful as yours. Practice, practice, practice. I am hand quilting an 83 year old quilt right now that my mother made when she was 14. I can quilt with either my middle finger or my thumb. In fact sometimes the stitches done with my thumb are the neatest. I use this method instead of turning my hoop. It is for quilting backwards.

    My mother told me when she was hand quilting that it was
    relaxing for her. I can now understand what she meant.
    My quilting stitches are small, but uneven. Still practicing.

    Andrea, I understand how you use the needle to mark, but are you using a stencil? Do you design the quilting pattern to fit each quilt and draw it on paper?

    Your work is so spectacular. I would love to try a small wholecloth like yours. Where do you purchase your fabric? And what is the fabric called?

    Thanks

    I've used my white plastic Hera marker to do lines/indentations.
