HANDQUILTING AND APPLIQUE: When hand quilting or applying appliqués, like the ones on the Sadie dress, you could use an all-purpose thread, or you can use a specialty Hand Quilting thread. When hand sewing, always cut your threads, never break them. Make sure the thread isn't too long, anything over 20" will cause knots and tangles. Passing your thread through beeswax also helps prevent tangles.
