Have you tried Magnifico Thread yet? This is a thread line by Superior Threads that debuted several months ago. I have been using it for machine quilting and also for machine embroidery applique and I LOVE this thread! I didn’t want to say anything on my blog until I’d spent a number of months with it and I can now say, without any reservation, that Magifico Thread is Magnificent Thread! It has a great sheen and it is strong, strong, STRONG! It even holds up on high speed embroidery machines, so you know this is good stuff! I used a lot of it on this machine embroidery applique panel that measures 41 inches x 24 inches and has over 250,000 stitches on it:
I still haven’t removed all my registration crosshairs, so it’s not quite ready to be used in a quilt yet, but here are some closeup shots:
This panel is a great example of how much thread work can add to a quilt! I’m hoping to finish the piecing of a wall hanging that uses this panel in the next couple of days and then I can quilt it…I can’t wait!!
