Child of God, wife, mother, daughter, sister, friend, quilter, basket lover, amateur photographer, flower and vegetable gardener …….. some a little of who I am, some a lot of who I am, and all a part of me. When I started quilting several years ago, it sparked a passion in my creative side that I never knew existed. I fell in love with it from the very start. I love everything about it, from choosing the fabrics and designing the quilt until the time I finish the last stitch of the binding and everything in between.

Quilting thread suggestions?

To all my quilting buddies, do you have a preference as to what brand, type, or weight of thread you use for machine quilting?  I use 100% cotton Gutterman for piecing and recently bought some Signature cotton for quilting but I am not really happy with it.  It is 40 weight.  The price is definitely right but the quality seems to be lacking.  Has anyone tried King Tut?  I have always used all cotton because that seems to make sense to me since the fabric and batting are 100% cotton, but a lot of people use a poly blend and are happy with it.
