    Nope I don't. I just sew my binding to the back first, then over to the front and top stitch down. Saves my sanity!

    I have invisible thread in my quilting machine right now. Both bobbin and needle.

    Yup, I've used it in both to quilt up some baby quilts.

    I've used it in both place ( my current machine will only allow it in the bobbin, it can not "see" it on the top side)
    I loved the look of invisable thread. A lot of ppl have said not to use it in bobbin, but I've not had a problem.
    I'm with MARIPOSA.... I sew mine on the back first then fold over and stitch down on the top ( just covereing the stitch linewith the binding)..... I wont say it saved my sanity, I think I lost that years ago but it sure makes it easier.

    Be sure not to use your automatic cutter. It will really mess it up. Voice of experience.

    I have used it in both, have done plenty of sewing with no problems and even appliqué, give it a try on some scraps first because I know some who say there machines don't like it. Good luck.

    I've tried but my machine tangles the bobbin thread so I just sew front on by machine and hand sew the rest.

    Of my 3 machines, none like invisible thread so therefore I don't like it either. I always do what my machines tell me to do!!
