      Too bad I didn't know there was a use for them. I could have saved the ones I pulled out of my cat's head a couple years back.

      Before you speak,
      T - is it TRUE?
      H - is it HELPFUL?
      I - is it INSPIRING?
      N - is it NECESSARY?
      K - is it KIND?

        Sending stuffed Minkie Cat. Please place outside after liberally coating with tuna fish. In the morning, remove quills and count. Let me know how many self-addressed, stamped envelopes to send you so everyone who loves M*QC can have one!

            This thread seems to highlight how new I am to quilting!

            This may be a daft question but what are porcupine quills used for in relation to quilting?

                A quill is used the same way as a stiletto..use the point to guide your fabric through the machine rather than using your finger. It can also be used for applique and probably other ways I don't know about. Barb

                      Thanks! It all makes sense now! We don't get many porcupines in the UK
