Bonnie, I cannot use a thimble other than quilting.  This is the part I like 
the best and do the best.  Entering competition is a learning lesson but also 
requires bearing the sole.  My first quilt I entered was a challenge, my own 
design, not sq and now unbelievably poorly done but I rcd a judges award.
    My second was a log cabin wall hanging and the logs were placed so as to 
simulate   geometric hearts.  I hand pcd the logs as I didn't think I could do 
it by machine and then hand quilted the logs.  Members of my small group ask 
why I would tackle something so difficult and today I would say the same.  I 
got viewers choice award.  Now I look at it and think how poorly it was done 
    Remembering one of my first shows I entered, judge commented on the need 
of sq corners and this is always a frequent comment for other quilters.  A 
comment I rcd at this show was how nice my mitered corners were which is a 
cherished comment to me.
    So many quilters in our area create tops and have them quilted by a long 
arm service.  At this point I can't imagine doing that but I am sure the day 
will come when I can not see well enough to hand quilt.
