New Thread!

I mentioned in my last post that I had ordered some hand-quilting thread. I don't think I mentioned that I ordered it from Superior Threads. My hope is that the green will match the green on my latest art quilt, but (of course) I ordered more than just the green thread. I decided since I was going to have to pay shipping anyway, I would order a "Treasure Try Me Special." This special consists of five 300-yard spools of the Treasure hand quilting thread for $5 per spool. I also ordered the TREASURE Color Card for future reference.

I was VERY pleased with the variegated colors; they are REALLY beautiful. I have never hand-quilted with variegated thread, so I'm not sure if it is what I need for my art quilt. I'll let you know how it turns out when I have a chance to do some quilting. I'll also write a little review of this thread. Personally, I like an all-cotton, waxed, hand-quilting thread. I like the way it glides through the fabric with little tangling. Check back to see if this thread fits the bill.

I've never tried their threads, but have heard good things about it.

I've liked all the Superior threads I've tried. Good luck!
