    OMGosh! That is a beautiful quilt! I'm impressed 8-)
    Thanks! I got a 2nd place at a guild show several years ago.

    I don't even remember. I think it was paper pieced.

    If not work gloves try knit gloves with the 'gripper dots'. That's what I use, and they work fine.

    Here are my choices..Grabaroos(they are purple), quilter's Nitrile touch(various colors, look like water proof gardening gloves), Ergonomic Sewgrip gloves(look like surgical gloves), and machine quilting Grip gloves..(look knitted with dots on them)

    any ideas, suggestions, HELP...thanks
    I just use a pair of cheap garden gloves with the rubber dot on them. I bought a pack of 6 gloves. they work just as good as the expensive ones and are not as tight on my hands and I have small hands.

    I too use cheap gardening gloves and I did cut off the tips of the index finger and thumb. Makes all the difference when you don't have to remove your gloves to pick up pins, etc.
