Five-year-and-two-weeks-iversary!

As promised, I have a giveaway for you!

I’ve been quilting my Wallander top trying out some new threads, I’ve enjoyed them so much I wanted you to try them too, and after a little bit of email pestering, Superior Threads have offered me a $25 gift certificate for their online shop.

DSCF5746

So what would you buy if you won? There is the famous King Tut thread for the top thread that a lot of quilters swear by, or maybe you want to try out Bottom Line like I did? Or both? The Bottom Line is lovely and smooth in the machine, a bobbin lasts ages and it means that your chosen top thread lasts a lot longer since you’re only using it on top. Don’t be fooled that polyester thread isn’t good for quilts, this stuff works a dream and doesn’t cut your fabric. My personal recommendation is to use cotton to piece (as this is what holds it together ultimately) then bust out some reliable and strong polyester to get all of your quilting done.

DSCF5748

In addition to polyester, I can also recommend the Kimono Silk thread. This is a thin thread that melts away into your top so that you can put finer details and fillers into your design without drawing too much attention to it, and with a slight lustre to it. They do piecing, appliqué and hand sewing threads too, so if quilting’s not your thing, you won’t be left out.

I think I’d like to try out Trilobal Fantastico next, it’s a high sheen 40wt thread. Lovely colours!

 

 

To win, just let me know which thread you think would be most useful to you and leave a comment here on this post.

For additional entries you can:

  • Like the Superior Threads Facebook page, and let me know in a comment that you did
  • Follow Superior Threads on Pinterest, and tell me that you did
  • Tweet or FB about this giveaway, and tell me that you did (with your username where appropriate)

Giveaway open internationally and I will draw the winner in the evening on Tuesday 25th June (UK time).

    I would love to try the silk thread – I need my FMQ to be very discreet; not very good at it :-) Thanks for the chance to win. Haven’t got Facebook or Pinterest accounts or a blog for that matter.

    I love King Tut thread and have plenty of it. I would like to try bottom line to see how it works and the silk too. Thank you for the chance to win.

    Thanks Kerry for a lovely give away! I would love to try some because I haven’t paid too much attention for thread. Mostly I use Greek cotton which I have in big spools. x Teje

    I love your idea of combining Bottom Line with King Tut, so I might try that. If not, I would stock up on So Fine in a neutral color. Congrats on your bloggy milestone!

    I have been having a lot of trouble picking out threads. Trying to get as much information from online as I can. Would love to be able to try the top and bottom threads. Maybe I wouldn’t have so much thread breakage.

    I would ask your advice for which is the best thread to quilt my sampler quilt! You’re the boss…

    I’d love to try the bottom line thread because a friend really rates it for needleturn applique – the stitches just disappear! Happy bloggy birthday!!

    I have never used different thread in the top and bottom, so I think I would take your advice and try some King Tut and some Bottom Line. Happy Blogiversary, Kerry!

    I think I would like to try bottom line. I just quilted a bed size quilt with a variegated thread and it would have been nice to use it on the top only and save some for another quilt.

    The kimono silk thread sounds interesting to play with!
