Hand quilting Thread

Best hand quilting threads 

The key criteria for best hand quilting threads are thinner, stiffer and slippery. 

Thinner thread makes your stitch looks finer; Less bulk of threads in quilt keeps your quilt soft with more stitches. It is also easier to pull thread through.

Stiffer thread makes your stitch looks deeper in the quilt, creating much more effective embossing effect of your designs. That is why I hand quilt - for that eternal look of dotted lines... 

Slippery cotton thread is "glazed" meaning with hair compressed down so it is no longer hairy to cause tangling or knotting.

1. Natural: one colour fits all with an unmistakable attitude of "returning to Nature".

2. White: one of the two mono colours, can be used for any colour quilt tops. Add purity to your work. 

3. Red wine: best for all colours except baby quilts. Not common for tender colour quilt tops. Add warm earthy effect to your design. Low contrast when used on black or other dark background fabric creates an understated elegance. 

4. Gold: Great for every colour top except white fabric. Where you can use white and natural colour thread, you can safely use the gold. It adds a rich and warm feeling to your work.

5. Rose: Great for all colour top except black fabric. It adds a tenor pretty touch to your work. A must have for girls quilt.

6. Black: Great for all colour top except black top: Nothing wrong, just that your eyes may not like watching black on black. In fact, Red Wine colour thread is the best to use on black fabric so your quilting design are not taking over yet still there when eyes are looking for it.
