This is the first quilt I made in a class @ The Poise’n Ivy Shop in Ohio. I hand pieced it and then was hand quilted before we made the move to Minnesota. Fell in love with quilting and have continued with it since.

Kelly's Shamrocks Kelly’s Shamrocks
By: Rebecca Burch,

My husband’s boss was expecting a baby in March. I found this darling shamrock fabric so I made a baby quilt (“Single Irish Chain”) from it. I hand quilted shamrocks in the plain squares. As it happened, the baby was a little girl (Kelly) born on St. Patrick’s Day! So this was perfect for her!

This is a disappearing four patch quilt that I made for my 5 year old nephew who’s favorite color is green. It was just my second quilt and gave me the most trouble of the 5 I have completed thus far…but it was worth every minute when I see pictures of my nephew with it.

  1. Marjorie says:

    For almost all kinds of sewing I like quilting betweens. Size 9 is most comfortable, but sometimes for hand piecing I use a smaller size). I use Sharps for things like hemming.

  2. Dawn says:

    I like a size 10 quilting between. It’s small enough to go through many layers easily, but long enough to stack a few stitches. I don’t have a favorite brand, I buy whatever I can find. I lose them too quickly and too often to care who makes them.

  3. Joni Keskey says:

    Whatever is in my hand dandy pincushion.

  4. I just pick one out that looks like it will get the job done.

  5. Maureen Latta says:

    Lovely quilts but I have voted for my favourite, so hope I’m lucky

  6. Susan says:

    I use a 10 between for quilting. I don’t have a favorite–I buy whatever brand is available in that size.

  7. Heidi says:

    I have not tried hand quilting and use applique needles for my bindings and such.

  8. sara says:

    I use the quilting betweens – no special brand

  9. Maggie says:

    Dritz seems to be the brand that I buy most often. Since I jump from quilting to smocking to tapestry I have a pin cushion full of needles all sizes and shapes. I just grab what looks comfortable for whatever project is at hand.

  10. Janet Walters says:

    I don’t have a favorite brand, I just buy quilting needles and use whatever’s in the package. I loose them allot!

  11. Amy K Hines says:

    I like the size 9 needle because it’s easier for me to use when hand quilting since it’s larger. I don’t do enough hand quilting to use a smaller sized needle….wish I had more time to perfect that skill.

  12. susana says:

    Que color bello es el verde!
    Tengo muchas agujas de muchas marcas.
    Esas telas verdes de Vicki … me da una envidia verde de quien las gane.

  13. claire A says:

    I usually use a size 11 between for quilting; nowadays that requires a needle threader!

  14. Di Wilsey Ger says:

    John James as recommended by David Taylor!!

  15. vicki seals says:

    I use whatever needle looks like it will work with what project I am doing at the time, they are all quilting needles. Thanks for the giveaway. vickise at gmail dot com

  16. Judy Stone says:

    I have so many needles but I like sharps best for almost everything. Don’t know the brand name – James from the UK?

  17. Jeanne says:

    I use the size I think will get done what I need.

  18. isabell says:

    I use John James needles for all my needlework.

  19. Pam says:

    I haven’t ventured into much hand quilting yet so I’m not sure………..but it’s on my to do list!

  20. Kris says:

    I am not a big handwork person but I have tons of needles. I like betweens usually 9 or 10s.

  21. I hand quilt with John James Quilting Needles, usually. I prefer to use a size 12, even though they sometimes break when I am going through a particularly thick seam. Thanks for the chance to win!

  22. Gill says:

    I use a quilting between, whatever looks about the right size, no particular brand!

  23. Jeane says:

    For hand quilting I like John James Quilting #9. The needles are very sturdy and have a good eye for threading.
