Thread, Thread, Thread and more Thread!!
My favorite threads to use at the moment are:
YLI Silk 100wt for machine quilting, love it!
Superior Threads-Masterpiece Cotton 50wt 2 ply for piecing and hand applique, love that too!!
If you would like to learn more about thread, check out my friends blog, Threadmongers. She is listed in my blog list. Judy, aka Threadmonger, sells fabulous thread and has a wealth of information on all kinds of thread types. Judy came down to our quilt guilds meeting (Santiam Scrappers Quilt Guild) one month and gave us an excellent lesson on the different types of threads available and the uses for each and then gave us the opportunity to purchase. That was a really fun night!!
The types of needles we use with the different types of thread are also very important, but that will be another posting :^)
Happy Quilting/Keep those needles sharp!!
