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!!


On a more somber note, if you have had the wonderful luck to take a class with Libby Lehman or learned something by watching one of her videos or read her book, she is critically ill.  She had surgery for a brain aneurysm and then had a stroke in the postop period.  She is sedated (this helps give the brain a  rest while it is healing) and is holding her own but remains very ill.  Please find it in your hearts to send her a card or a quilted card or some show of support.  Her husband has asked that letters can be sent to:

Libby Lehman
617 Caroline
Houston, TX 77002

Thread lovers unite, and keep Libby and her family in your thoughts and prayers.
