    For you hand quilters, have you ever used the Spoon Quilting tool, if so do you like it or not?

    I've used spoons, TJs quick quilter, and a "thimble" with a ridge for the underside. I need one of these to make a ridge, dunno how to quilt without it!

    I've never used it because I need to feel the needle unterneath my quilt.

    I used it for awhile but I really like my leather thimbles. I like to feel underneath too.

    Grace, it's metal, about 3 inches long (I think) almost like a paddle, but one side has a circle of indentations for the needle.
    If I could find mine I'd take a pic but that would take years lol

    Back in the day, when I still did hand quilting I could only use a leather timble.

    I use soup spoons that have round bowls rather than oval ones. I can usually get old sets of 6 from junk shops/charity shops for about 2. Use them until they are really scratched then discard them.

    I would suggest that before you buy make sure the handle isn't too long/too short and that your thumb nestles comfortably in the bowl of the spoon. I find the shallower the bowl the better.
