I am working on some Christmas Coasters and Tablerunners, and I want to use Metallic thread and/or clear thread for the quilting. I have heard on other sites that these can be a pain to work with. I'm not working from any particular pattern, but in my head I see some very simple straight line quilting, using gold to highlight the metallic gold that appears in the fabric print. I'd like to use the gold in both the bobbin and the top thread, but would it be better to just use it in one? Any advice? I used the clear for top thread in this set and didn't have any problems. The second set will be just like this except I will be using black for the backing, and I just think the gold would dress it up and make it "jazzy", if I can use it for both.
