Color selection for Spagetti by top quilt designer Susan Cleveland.
TIP Here are a few tips from Susan:
For hand stitching, use whatever you feel comfortable with and use a finger cot on the index finger that pulls the thread. This requires much less pinch strength to pull the needle and will save your hand and arm from damage.
I find the Bohin "finger cots" to be wonderful for handwork. Put them on your index finger to pull the needle more easily. They come in Small, Medium, and Large. I don't pick up a hand needle without them.
