Hi everyone, I have a query with using 40 rayon embroidery thread for free motion quilting.
I am working on a quilt 'Plum Blossoms' designed by Janet Houts. I have stitched in the ditch everywhere using Guttermans Egyption Cotton (50) but really need some advice.
Here is a pic of the quilt without its borders..
Now I have some Wonderfil embroidery thread for my embroidery machine and was wondering if it was Ok to use for the rest of the quilting? Will it be too weak? I was planning on filling the long panels..but I dont know if the thread will be sturdy enough- it has a lovely soft sheen to it which I really liked . So if it is not suitable have you any recommendations of which thread would have a similar character?
I would really appreciate some advice as DH thinks my embroidery thread wouldnt be strong enough.
Also I have to buy my thread via mail order so I am not in a position to see the thread before I buy..Thanks for looking!
