Having volunteered to machine quilt several quilts for the Queensland Quilters Flood effort, I am in a tizz over thread! I tried to use machine quilting thread purchased several years ago, thread that is thicker than I now normally use, thread that I thought I could use up and never buy again! I thought that I could use it in the bobbin as well - big mistake.... wrong! I ended up unpicking a bit then using my favourite Bottom Line in the bobbin, much better effect. The moral of this story is -if you are going to do it- do it well. Save yourself the agony of handing in a half hearted job, one that you will be unhappy with. The quilt I am working on has been donated by a quilter, the fabric is pretty, the design simple but pretty. Will post a picture when it is done.
