If Nana and Gini recommend them they must be good. I just might have to try them. ;-)

I like the Piecemakers betweens but never used any of the others. I found some other needles in my sewing room and tow of them snapped in my hand. I wasn't sewing just holding the needle. I have no idea whose needles they are.

 I wish I remembered to order the P3 needles with the last order. I will try Bohin as they sell them at the LQS.

I finally finished my flower quilt! This one is wool appliqués. It was a block of the month. I really enjoyed my experience and now am ready to work again on my wildflowers quilt.  Here it goes.

it was a great experience. Now I need to figure out how to quilt it. I'm debating between hand quilting or machine....hmmm! Decisions, decisions!

I understand that the sight is having problems with Windows,  so you can get to this sight by going through Google Chrome.  I read this on the discussion yesterday and tried it and now I can get in to the sight.  Lynn

Thank you so much for your comments. I was wondering if you think that with this quilt having some wool, it would be better to hand quilt or machine? Also any ideas on how to quilt it?

Angele, if you used felted wool and you are confident that your stitches will hold and you are comfortable that the three layers may or may not shrink at the same rate,  you can probably wash it in the washer, on delicate.  The wool may get more fluffy if you use the dryer,       I haven't washed a wool quilt in the washer, but there isn't a good reason not to if you're confident in your work.

Your quilt is beautiful.   I have seen wool applique quilts both machine and hand quilted.   I think either would work fine.
