Good Morning, Quilters!
I’d like to take a minute to welcome all of you who have joined us from QuiltViews. We are thrilled to have you join us. Thank you to Ann for the “shout-out”. Make sure you sign up for this great newsletter-tips, techniques, and ideas from American Quilter Society.
Today is OPEN LINE FRIDAY….
We reserve Fridays for Questions…Anyone can ask…EVERYONE answers! There are more than 6000 of us with all kinds of quilting experience. If you have a question, chances are, someone else does, too…and chances are someone in the group will have the answer.
I frequently get questions about how to find a previous post. I don’t mind answering those questions–usually I can put my mouse on it in just a few clicks…but you may find it faster by using the “search” function in the sidebar. (If you are reading this on an iPhone, the “search” function may be at the end of the post.)
I recently had a question about choosing a Needle. I usually recommend free motion quilting with a Topstitch 80 or 90 depending on your thread weight. Topstitch needles have a slightly rounded Sharp tip, a large eye and a deep groove for the thread. For more about threads, you might like: How to Choose a Needle for Free Motion Quilting .
I hope you are all enjoying our Mystery Quilt-a-Long as much as I am….
What about YOU? Do you enjoy (non-quilting) mysteries? How many of the Top 100 have you read? Do you have any books or movies to recommend?
I am currently reading The Daughter of Time by Josephine Tey. It’s listed as one of the best mystery books of all time.
We’d love to hear YOUR recommendations…
Also, if you have any questions…
We’d LOVE to help…
