Hello Everyone!

My Cathedral Windows quilt is finished!  Woohoo!  Very happy to have it done. It will be a charity quilt for Valley Children's Hospital and I will make a similar one for my GD in Michigan for her birthday.  My camera is charging and I will post pictures soon.

Donna and her crazy  kitty helpers, Missy and Racer

It could even fix your wimpy fabric for the reverse needle turn...just sayin' 

and they actually mentioned it for reverse applique.  My eyebrows raised at that point. :-)

I don't even know if there are ballpoint needles for long arms. 

I'm behind so don't know if this has been addressed.  There are ball point needles for longarms and several well renowned longarmers swear by them.

I took a serge class a couple of years ago and they showed an example of what happens to knits sewn with a regular needle. With washing and wear the area around the seams were pretty tattered. For knits always use a ballpoint.
