New Tools

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.


  1. haven't tried either product...interested in how the fusible does for you

  2. You can buy the Towa at many places online. Just google in Towa bobbin case tension gauge.


I love hearing from you. Please feel free to leave a comment.
