One of my tools for pulling through yarn in tight fabric was using a hemostat. My son, the mechanic, insisted it would be an invaluable quilting tool and was so right.

I finished a quilt for the mother of my late boyfriend. It's made with pieces of some of his shirts with his favorite colors, black and red, added. Some of the quilting isn't visible in the photo. I used the feather pattern that's in the black sections in the white corners of each block. The white triangles are quilted with a fan pattern. The four-patch sections are quilted with a Celtic knot pattern.

Wow,Carol, your quilt is fantastic!!

Agnes, does the hemostat make marks on your needle or make it rough? I tried pliers once ....had to buy a new needle!

🌺 You know you are a quilter when the only scraps under your table are fabric.🐾

I agree regarding the hemostat, Agnes.  I frequently have to use a small pliers to pull my needle thru when I am quilting by hand.  When your thumbs have arthritis you rely on different methods to get where you want to go.   Ginny

Deb--It's been a long time since I used the hemostat but don't remember any needle damage. Believe if that were the case I would have tossed them and they are still in my quilting supplies.

Carol--Love the memory quilt. The additional fabrics really make an impact.

Kris, All I can say is you are one lucky puppy to be able to get a long arm quilting machine.  I probably would go into deep debt if I could find a place to put one.  I am so happy that your dreams are coming true.    Ginny

Ginny I've been saving my pennies for a long time. All the old timers can tell you how long I've been dreaming. Still can't believe it's happening.

Nice work Carol. I'm sure she'll love it.
