There is no definitive answer to your choice of thread, we all have preferences and different needs.

Here at Quilt Direct we use the best cotton fabrics we can and match them with our 100% cotton threads. We use the Mettler 60wt or Aurifil 50wt for piecing, these are both high quality threads that have exceptional colour fastness and a high break resistance. They reduce the bulk in your seams to help with ¼" seam construction. We choose to use cotton as it is kinder to the fabric, today and tomorrow.
