For years I have quilted my small quilts with Aurifil 50 weight thread. It just seemed so easy to use the same weight for everything. Then I was making a secret project that I wanted the quilting to make a statement and felt like I failed.
Example 1: Quilted with 50 weight
While on vacation I picked up a spool of Aurifil 40 weight to try for quilting and I really noticed a difference using the thicker thread.
Example 2: Quilted with 40 weight
In example 1 - the quilting looks kind of flat and in example 2 - I think the quilting is more defined and stands out!
For me it will be Aurifil 50wt for piecing and Aurifil 40wt for quilting!
Tell me do you see the difference?
A whole new collection of Aurifil colors! I can never get enough Aurifil! I think I will be more satisfied with my quilting from now on.
What a difference a heavier weight thread can make!
I am going to end the Vacation Giveaway on Tuesday. Please enter if you haven't already!
Thank you for being you! I hope you are enjoying your weekend!
