There are always new tools and supplies to be found to help improve quilting. I am one that is hestitant to buy things unless I know they will help. Here are a couple that I've just gotten.
This first is the Towa Bobbin case tension gauge. I bought one for my longarm because I really have a problem with the tension. I used this little contraption and found I had my bobbin tension way too tight. What I had thought was good was wrong. Now my machine seems to work much easier and the back side of the quilt looks much better.
I also bought this Floriani Stitch N Wash Fusible. I have yet to use it, but will be very soon on the Heart's Desire Applique that I am doing. Esther's are so good. I want mine to look that fine also and I believe this is what she uses.
