Quilting with Aurifil

For years I have quilted my small quilts with Aurifil 50 weight thread. It just seemed so easy to use the same weight for everything. Then I was making a secret project that I wanted the quilting to make a statement and felt like I failed.   Example 1: Quilted with 50 weight While on vacation I picked up a spool of Aurifil 40 weight to try for quilting and I really noticed a difference using the thicker thread.   Example 2: Quilted with 40 weight In example 1 - the quilting looks kind of flat and in example 2 - I think the quilting is more defined and stands out! For me it will be Aurifil 50wt for piecing and Aurifil 40wt for quilting! Tell me do you see the difference? A whole new collection of Aurifil colors! I can never get enough Aurifil! I think I will be more satisfied with my quilting from now on. What a difference a heavier weight thread can make! I am going to end the Vacation Giveaway on Tuesday.
