If you’ve been quilting for awhile you can probably tell whether a fabric will be soft and supple, a bit flimsy or stay a tad stiff after the first washing. That’s important to know because the properties of the fabric will affect how the quilting will appear on the completed quilt.
Experienced quilters tend to know a lot about quilting fabric and how the various brands will perform in a finished quilt.
But what do you know about thread? Selecting the right thread is just as important to the success of the quilt as the fabric is.
While any standard good-quality thread will often do, did you know that you can affect the qualities of the finished quilt based on the thread you select?
In the following video Heather Thomas teaches us all about thread. Learn how different types, weights and brands will affect the look and feel of the machine quilting on your quilts.
This is an excellent video that even long-time quilter can benefit from!
