Thank you for this recommendation. I just took a look at that and it's definitely something that I would use a lot, so I might just go ahead and order one before I get the machine.

Marshall Dry Goods Snuggle flannel

I'm thinking of buying a bolt of this in white or natural to use for backings, but I'm a little hesitant because I had a bad experience with flannel (from a LQS.) I prewashed it before I used it and...

I bought a bolt of their 108" wide Dream Cotton in white. I love it! I used some of it to back a quilt, and I dyed some of it to make a quilt for my daughter.

According to Superior's tex measurement reference chart, So Fine #50 is tex 25, so the Wawak thread is just a smidge thinner. I'm guessing the difference will be hard to see.

Superior has some...

I'm looking forward to trying this Wawak thread. I like Connecting Threads poly every bit as much as So Fine, and it's a lot cheaper. So Fine is 50/3 and CT poly is 70/3, so it's thinner, but when...
