paper piecing: needle changing?
I haven't done a lot of paper piecing but I'm working on a quilt that requires 48 six inch blocks. I know all that paper is dulling the needle but I don't want to change it until I have all of the 6" blocks done. Then I'll remove the paper, change the needle and put those little blocks together into 12" blocks. Is that how you all would do it or would you change your needle more often?
It's kind of a moot question for this project since I have all but 12 of the small blocks done, but I am curious to know if I should have done it differently. My paper piecing has been mostly learned by trial and error!
