A friend had a Connecting Threads catalog today, and I noticed their Essential Cotton Thread for a very low price. I've been converted by this board to using Aurifil thread, so i'm not sure it would be as good. Have you used it and do you think it compares to Aurifil for general piecing as well as quilting? I don't usually use very heavy thread for FMQ.
I'm sure there will be conflicting opinions, as always, but am interested in what experience tells you.
