what type and size of needle do use for handquilting[tying] a quilt. I can't seem to find a proper needle so it is easy to thread. I either use crochet thread or ..sorry forgot the other. It seems the eye isn't large enough for me to get the thread thru,suggestions please.

RE: Hand quilting needle

If you are going to tie the quilt instead of quilting it, then I think a darning needle would work. The eye should be large enough to handle light yarn or a very heavy thread.

RE: Hand quilting needle

I liked to use the curved needles when I tied a quilt.


RE: Hand quilting needle

I have to use the bigger quilting needles, can't get the smaller ones threaded. I have used the bigger utility needles for tying. Don't know what they are called, they come in those variety packs of all types of needles.
