    Superior Threads - Bottomline

    I have just ran out of my everyday piecing thread. It was a cream 60wt and I need to buy more. Has anyone used the superior thread bottom line both in the top and bobbin? Did it work ok? Have yo compared this with the King Tutt or the masterpiece. They are both more expensive so it would be good to know. Thank you in advance. xx

    I have used bottom line for both bobbin and top thread. I prefer to use it for quilting on the bottom thread and regular cotton 40 wt on the top. The bottom line is 60 wt and is very strong. Love it. Worth the money.

    I use it top and bottom for stitch-in-the-ditch, because it's fine enough to be less visible. Works well.

    I don't think you will be disappointed using this thread for piecing. Very strong.

    I often use it for piecing, top and bottom or just in the bottom.

    I love Bottom Line, I switched to it when I was making a super-tiny miniature quilt and never went back. I used it for top and bobbin thread for that project, and continue to use it in the bobbin. It's also fabulous for hand applique, disappears into the fabric as well as silk, IMO.

    I use it and other very thin thread for piecing be sure you use a size 70 needle with thread 60 or more.
    Got fabric?

    Great for piecing and for quilting as well.
