I am purchasing some Aurifil 50wt thread for piecing. I understand it is the thinnest weight. Has anyone ever quilted with this weight? I am wondering if the thinnness of the thread will sink into the fabric or if it kind of stays on top.
I have begun using primarily wool batting because I like the almost trapunto look it gives when the background is densely quilted. I am wondering if a thinner thread or a thicker thread will help to emphasize that effect.
Also, if anyone has used the 40wt Aurifil (or other brands) I would love to hear about that experience as well.
