TallPinesStudio Posted May 13, 2005 Report Share Posted May 13, 2005 I need advice on the best needle size to use on Batik quilts. I have been using MR4.0 needles on all my quilts so far, but have recently read that larger needles are recommended because of the tight fabric weave of batiks. I just noticed that APQS sells MR5.0 needles as well as 4.0. What would these be best suited for? (I can't remember if the number goes up or down for larger size...) I thought I'd seek advice BEFORE I encounter a problem. FYI - I have actually quilted on batiks before - mostly with no problem. But I have two batik quilts ahead of me and I want to be prepared with backup needles (new size) if necessary. Thanks in advance for your advice.
