I love variegated threads... I use Superior , and when Jo'anns has thread for 1/2 price buy the coats & clark 100 percent cotton. My thread stash is starting to get out of control with all the choices.

My favourite thread to quilt with is Sulky's Blendables http://www.sulky.com/thread/thread_blendables.php

Sulky has expanded their Blendables line of variegated thread several times since it came out in 2009. Perhaps CT should reconsider their decision to stop production. :)

Of course not! I love using variegated threads. It brings a whole new meaning to creativity IMHO.

I use variegated threads a lot because it take the guess work out of which color do I go with and they blend really well.

Our Joanns has it in Maxi-Lock and if you google Maxi-lock varigated thread I am sure you will find it. I love it.

It is still available. Blendables is one of my favorites. I have used it for both machine quilting, and for applique. I hope it stays available forever!

I love Superior's Rainbows. Or I did till the last spool I had, which didn't play well at all. But usually it sews like a dream, so I'm hoping that one was a one-off bad one.

I really like and enjoy using Sulky blendables cotton in handquilting I use both the 12 wt and 30 wt.The 30 wt I sometimes use 2 threads together.

I just picked up 3 different colors of variegated Aurifil threads from fabric.com. I know Superior Threads carry a lot- I even have it in silk threads- so I don't think it is 'going out of style' our local Joann's carries a lot of variegated thread too.
