Todays Sewing

Today I tried "DG" machine quilting style with a Sulky 30wt blendables thread.


I decided that I don't like this thread for the "DG" style, but it is good for meandering (I tried stipple, loops, leaves, butterflies and dragonflies).
This is one of my favorite threads for machine embroidery. I use a #90 needle when I sew with it. When I quilt with it I really need to slow down as it tends to break when I go too fast or through seams.

This is a pillow cover that I made last year to try out embroidery stitches on my new machine. The thread is much better for this application.

Have a great day and thanks for dropping by!!

I see what you mean by the thread better suited for meandering. It isn't fluid enough for the DG stuff. Nice dragonfly there.
