Thread comes in many different colors, weights and fiber contents. When creating a quilt, it pays to buy the highest quality thread you can afford so it wears as well as the fabric in the quilt.

The weight refers to the thickness of the thread, and specific weights are optimal for each step in making a quilt.
Sherri McConnell has written an excellent article that explains what thread types and weights are best for all the aspects of putting a quilt together. You’ll find several other good tips for selecting thread, as well.
