Timing is perfect. I'm planning on hand quilting a lap top quilt and believe the tip to fold the fabric onto the needle will help. I've tried in the past with varied results and also to quilt toward myself, so I can keep it comfortable.
Would you show the underside to know how much is caught in the stitches? You make such tiny ones and you make it sound easy, using the thimble, I can't wait to try now.
