    Aurifil Thread 40 WT

    My cousin Lori Marvel, just finished quilting this art quilt.
    I just love how the 40wt Aurifil add so much dimension.
    What kind of thread do you like to free motion quilt with?

    Very nice! Aurifil is one of my favorites, although I use 50wt with Mettler 60wt in the bobbin.
    May your stitches always be straight, your seams always lie flat, and your grain never be biased against you.

    Beautiful quilt. As for what thread... my thread stash is looking more like my fabric stash everyday... I use so many different ones , each project has its own "thread identity".

    That is brilliant. Don't have any answers for you but love the work
    Home is where the heart is, and a few scrappy quilts.

    I seem to use King Tut 40wt most of the time...top and bottom.
    This wall piece really turned out well.

    That is a lovely art quilt - very life-like. Love the fabrics, but my monitor setting don't let me see the thread all that clearly I sure do like it though!

    When Thomas Edison invented the light bulb, he tried over 2000 experiments before he got it to work. A young reporter asked him how it felt to fail so many times. He said, "I never failed once. I invented the light bulb. It just happened to be a 2000 step process."
