Machine Quilting with So Fine Thread

IMG_8930Another day another machine quilting sample.  This one was done with So Fine! by Superior Threads, a polyester thread – 50 wt. and 3 ply thread.  This is a great thread to quilt with.  So Fine comes in 3 different weights, 30 wt, 40 wt, and 50 wt.  The website says this 50 wt. thread would be good to use for bobbin thread but it worked great as a top thread.

I used Bottom Line for the bobbin thread for this piece and it was quilted on my Bernina 730 with the BSR foot.  The cotton batting is not identified again and the tension was kept at the default setting as was the stitch length.  I used an 12/80 topstitch needle to do the stitching.

I would use this thread again as it was so easy to quilt with.  It left a fine line and since the color (403) is a light beige it doesn’t stand out too much against the light blue fabric.  The puffiness of the batting make the designs show up well though.

Happy Quilting,
