    I use Superior's Bottom Line in the bobbin - but has anyone used it as a top thread for quilting as well. If so, which needle is best?

    I was just using it last night. It works great. I was using a regular needle. Can not remember the size, but I know it was nothing fancy. I like the thread for everything, because it is so thin that I think it helps the seams lay flatter. I like it for qiolting, especially when I don't want the quilting to show much.

    I have a spool and it has lasted me a long time, you sure can get a lot on a bobbin with this thread.

    Thanks Maria that's helpful. I shall have a go with a Quilting 75/11 needle. Like you, I don't want the quilting to overtake the particular quilt if you know what I mean (and it won't show the whoops so much!!)

    Hi Katrine

    I was admiring your pin cushions at cat-on-a-mac's Gallery.
    Decided to come to your site to see pictures of your quilts (all lovely) and stumbled across this question

    I am a fanatic Bottom Line user - piecing hand and machine., hand applique, quilting hand and machine.
    My Bernina will take it top and bobbin - I use an 80/12 sharp or topstitch
    Neither of my Jems - Gold or Platinum will take it on top, only the bobbin.
