I'm trying out the gloves I've seen recommended on a few blogs recently; Ansell hyflex from the supermarket. They're great, although with a lot of stopping and starting in this quilting design, they're not the easiest when snipping threads. But they are saving my hands, arms and shoulders a lot of strain; well worth a few dollars! This quilt is about 3/4 quilted and going well apart from some irritating stitch-skipping as I reverse back up the first plume of each feather. And yes, I have a fresh topstitch needle, and just cleaned out the bobbin area.
