Okay, I spent $30 on some gold metallic thread to use on my d-i-l's quilt. I thought with the deep purple and black material and the gold stars, quilting the whole thing in gold would be very pretty. So, I order this stuff from Joann's and guess what? It ravels completely apart after about ten or so stitches.
I use a #10 quilting needle and do all my quilting by hand. I was so disgusted this afternoon I grabbed my old standby of natural colored thread and started quilting it in natural.. The back of the quilt is solid black and boy, does that natural color show up. This just really fries my bacon!
Any ideas of how to keep the thread from raveling? By raveling, I mean just coming unspun, all the gold off the filament.
