    Here are two quilts I am hand blanket stitching Black appliques with invisible thread. A real nightmare but I don't want to see the stitching. The quilt with bears is for my grandson and the moose quilt will be a wall hanger. I have no time frame to finish them so I hope to enjoy this new to me experience.

    Invisible thread is not easy to hand stitch with not sure it is even made for it, have you tried matching thread might be easier? They look good so far. Good luck and hang in there.

    You might want to try YLI silk thread. I love it for needle turn applique.

    Invisible thread twists together really badly when hand sewing with it. It's a hair pulling out experience!

    it is cool. I'm going along with those suggesting matching thread. Invisible thread actually has a shine.
