Aurifil Thread - kreationsbyjulz.com

50WT 100% cotton AURIfil thread 1422yards 1300mt

Machine piecing : Gives a great result with a nice flat seam every time.

Machine quilting : Use for very detailed machine quilting with a lot of back tracking such as feathers and heavy background quilting . Perfect for quilting that creates texture when you don’t necessarily want to see the quilting lines. Use the same thread in the bobbin. Use a Sharp/Microtex, quilting or even denim needles 80/12. – source
