For My “National Quilting Day” post I included a picture of my “tulips” little quilt. One of the things I really love about this is the quilting. The thread choice of the King Tut thread by Superior Threads I made turned out really nice and I loved how it completely enhanced the fabric and created a whole other dimension and textural effect that wasn’t there before. Had I used just a plain solid cotton thread, I would not have had the same result.
It is no secret that I LOVE, no really, I LOVE Superior Threads. It has never been, nor will it be just regular “any ol’ thread”. Every choice I make in materials for my quilts from beginning to end will have an impact on the final result. The choice of thread for quilting is not excluded from that. Depending on how much more or less additional texture I want, how much color alteration to the background, or no color alteration is an important consideration I always give careful thought to.
I have found that I never have to go outside the Superior line of threads to find the color, texture or weight of thread I need to really bring my quilting and therefore, my quilts, to life.
I will reiterate that I am not a paid sponsor or endorser, I am a really happy customer who wants to share a fabulous product that I think can make a big difference in your quilting experience. The price is definitely worth it.
