    Hi, I am new.
    I am from reading, PA doing my first Stain Glass, have not completed the double needle work, that scares me a little.
    I have been quilting for around 2 years, I love it

    If you are using 1/4" bias tape, just use a 4 mm double needle -- my avatar was sewn that way -- and is very easy to do. Just watch where you are going so that the line you just sewed down will be covered by the next stitching line, that way you dont have a million thread ends and a whole bunch of tie-offs.

    For me in stained glass quilts the hardest part is deciding which way to sew it down so you have the least amount os stops and starts Oh yeah welcome from NY

    Thanks Kim.
    I will post the picture as soon as can.
    You are so right I did both stain glass, pillow tops last night, it was so easy.
    I am going to try something with the different color threads, just to see it.

    That is gorgeous.
    I am going to look for Stain Glass patterns.
    I am so hooked on doing these.
    I did a rose, but would like to do a variety

    Thank you, yes I had the same problem.
    Also, if you do have to stop and start what keeps your threads from pulling out on the short strips.
