Aurifil Thread Giveaway - Black and White

Image
Let's talk thread! As Quilters and Sewers - thread binds everything we create together. Some will say the most important item is fabric, spend the extra on fabric, I say buy the best thread! Cheap cotton threads breaks and rots after a few years. Have a problem with your thread breaking try a spool of Aurifil 50 wt. thread! It may just cure it! Just a side note - if you have old thread that was given to you, use it as a decoration don't use it in your machine. Never buy old thread for sewing, it will just cause you a lot of frustration. When I needed a bag to hold my smaller rulers, I chose Aurifil 50 wt thread to zig zag the bag because it is strong and durable! I use white to sew almost everything light colored and that includes topstitching. I went back months searching my most used color and go figure it is Aurifil 50 wt. thread #2021, Natural White! It only goes to say that my other most used color of Aurifil 50 wt. thread is #2692, Black! Sometimes topstitching

Wanna Win some Aurifil Thread

The Aurifil Thread Giveaway ends on August 26, 2014 enter HERE My work in progress or WIP for this Wednesday (I know today is Tuesday) is hand quilting this mini quilt! I am hand quilting the Flowering Snowball Mini with Aurifil 12 wt. Thread using #2021 Natural White! As you look at the colors in this quilt you can see I could have used a variety of colors if I wanted the quilting to be the main focus but I didn't in this case. By using the white you see the beautiful sheen off the white but it blends with the white fabric. Aurifil 12 wt. threads are an excellent way of adding decorative stitches to projects and hand quilting. I love the look of how it makes the quilting pattern stand out without taking away from the overall appearance of the quilt. Thank you for stopping by to look around! Create and be unique!

The other day when I was looking at the Aurifl site and I found this tidbit Aurifil 12 wt Embellishment and Sashiko dreams ! I began to experiment with the machine settings, needles, threads and loved the texture of the heavier thread stitched with a sewing machine. Here is what I did to create this look! I used these setting on my new Juki Exceed Home Decor HZL-F300 that my wonderful hubby bought me for Christmas. What a killer deal that was and better left for another time. Changed the needle
