Ok, going way outside my box here and trying a new thread. Usually I just buy the C&C machine quilting spools at Wal-Mart but went over to Hancocks today to buy a bunch of $.99 FQs and seen this 100% cotton variagated thread on sale 1/2 off. I am gonna use it in the top shown as I think it will blend well. Soo, I have a few questions..
1) Can I use my normal quilting thread for the bobbins?
2) What is everyones experience with this brand? Any problems I should be aware of?

The thread in question

The top it's intended for

Beautiful quilt. I usually use Gutermann thread. Occasionally I use Mettler and I recently bought Connecting Threads cotton thread, but I prefer Gutermann. I have had no problems with it and I like to get it at JoAnn's for 50% off.

Thanks for the compliments guys! I have worked on this one for almost 9 months now. I did not use any strip piecing or other "quick" methods as I was wanting to hone my skills and being a taurus, I had to do it the hardest way possible. :-) It is my own design and has 1500 2 1/2" squares. Only the top half is completely together at this point.

I have used Guterman and have been happy with it. The question is: Does your machine like it? Some are persnickety. As for the bobbin, I usually use the same weight thread in the bobbin when I quilt. Not necessarily the same brand or even the same type.

The variegated will be perfect for that lovely quilt.

Wonderful quilt, but what did you do that was so bad that you would punish yourself to work with 1500 2 1/2 inch squares??

I love Gutterman, also use 100% cotton Sulky.

Very pretty quilt. I have not tried guttermen and found that walmart brand breaks to easy, I went to my local quilt shop and bought some Star tread to try in my new machine and it seems to work very well. The only brand I use with my quilting machine now is King Tut, it hardly breaks and way less fuzz around the bobbin case. But that is just my two cents.

I love Gutermann thread. Your quilt is beautiful!!
I am really against buying the cheaper threads. Just not worth it in the long run ( My opinion only)
