I read somewhere to use tatting thread (used for making lace)for hand basting a quilt as it is not polished, so it holds the threads of the fabric tighter and the fabric layers won't slip. The article suggested using thread the length of your arm to prevent tangling. It also suggested using DMC brand. My Joann's carries DMC embroidery floss, but not tatting thread, but I imagine it's available online. Has anyone tried it? Does it work better than sewing thread?
