So what hand sewing needle is best for your project? I don’t do a lot of hand sewing – arthritis gets in the way – but I never know which hand sewing needle I should use for whatever project I’m working on. Then I found this handy guide and thought I should share it with you.
The hourglass patch/block goes by several names – quarter-square triangle is a more common one. It starts out as a half-square triangle patch so the first part of this tutorial is much the same as my post on that subject.
