Obsession

Okay ... I will admit it .. I am obsessed with Aurifil thread!


This is my personal collection .. often you will find any of these colors in my machine ready to piece or quilt because here's the deal..if I'm gonna piece with beautiful bright fabric then why not piece with beautiful bright thread.

Several years ago .. back in the day people were only piecing with black, white or cream then along came light gray, med gray and dark gray..but then came the khaki colors..yep, you guessed it, light, medium and dark khaki.

I took a stand and said STOP THE MADNESS!

Aurifil Thread has some beautiful colors so why not use them all for everything.

I'm often asked about the best weight of thread to use for different projects.

80wt - machine & hand applique
50wt - piecing & quilting
40wt - machine applique & quilting
28wt - top stitch quilting & hand quilting
12wt - hand embroidery & hand quilting
6 strand floss - hand embroidery, cross stitch & hand quilting
***notice I colored the weight with the color of the spool.both 80wt and 6 strand floss are on little wooden spools***

So tell me .. do you use Aurifil? AND what is you favorite weight?

Until Next Time

Be Kind

  1. I use 50 wt nearly exclusively for machine piecing. I'm usually doing multicolored quilts, so I use a lot of medium tan, but also a lot of black.
