If any of you have hand appliquéd before you know the struggles of finding the perfect needle that works for you. I have found my very most favoritist needles for appliqué and I want to share them with you. They are designed by award-winning quilter Mary Sorensen. She calls them “betweens“. They come in two sizes, 10 & 11, the only difference being a little length. They are super fine, super sharp and easy to handle. She sells them for an amazing 12 in a tube for only $3.50 per tube!! That’s a steal! Even worth the expense just to test them out to see if they are for you. These are also the only needles I use for finishing my quilt binding by hand.
