Hand Quilting New Leaf

Just recently, I decided to add some hand quilting to a mini quilt I made (for which a pattern is coming very soon!).

I adore the effect, really and truly, but I had so much trouble pulling the needle through that at times I had to use pliers! That mostly happened when I had two or three stitches on the needle. Tell me, was I doing something wrong? It surely shouldn't be so hard.

I'm very new to hand quilting, but do love the effect so want to do it again. If you have any tips for me, I'd be ever so grateful. 

I'm also curious to know, what's your favourite brand of needle? Let me know in the comments.

Bye for now
