Still Quilting...


I've been busy piecing and quilting. I tried sulky cotton thread. I used Sulky blendables 30 wt. in the color Natural Taupe for the quilt above. I am so in love with this! I feel like for the first time, since I began free-motion quilting, that I am actually drawing with the thread. It looks great.




I also purchased some of Sulky's 12 wt. thread which is more thick than your ordinary thread. I think this will look great with the linen that I work with. I really need something that will show up. The other threads seem to get lost in the linen.

What thread do you use?


* If you e-mailed about the PDF and did not hear back from me, it was because you were a no-reply address. Please get in touch with me if you still want the pattern while I am offering it for free. It goes on sale next Monday in my shop to benefit St. Jude. Thanks guys!♥Erin*

I use Aurifil and Mettler most of the time. You work looks great!

Hey Erin. For fmq, I use Gutermann and Aurifil. For piecing, I mostly use the thread from Connecting Threads. For straight-line quilting, I can use anything, and have used some neat colors of Sulky threads. In fact, this next quilt I'll be working on will be quilted with a green variegated Sulky thread.

Hmm... I got thread today and the Sulky was all poly so I passed and got the Gutermann instead. I'll have to keep my eyes open.
