In my method of quilting, the threads, needles and decorative stitches are extremely important. My procedure, The Cotton Theory™, gives you reversible quilts with a new dimension without any handwork. To add a spark to the backside of my quilt, I simply wind my bobbins with Superior’s Halo thread. Halo has some metallic content, so it adds a nice glimmer to the color of your choice. In addition to the solid colors of Halo, I love the variegated Halo colors because they tie all my colors together and add sparkle. The backside of my quilts look as beautiful as the front. And that’s important because the quilts are all reversible.
In my Cotton Theory quilting projects, pieces are layered and quilted first before assembly. I often use cotton thread in all aspects of my quilt construction, including piecing, quilting, topstitching, applique, and embroidery. King Tut Quilting Thread, produced by Superior Threads, lies smoothly when creating quilted embroidery. The subtle color changes in the variegated thread blend well and tie the fabric colors together.
I’ve used about every thread in the marketplace, and nothing really compares to King Tut thread. It is smooth and strong, and with hardly any lint.
Customer service is No. 1 with Heather and Bob Purcell of Superior Threads. I asked, and they delivered. Thank you, Superior Threads, for listening to my needs and creating the deep jewel tones in my Cottage Colors collection of King Tut threads. These Cottage Colors blend well with the fabrics I use in Cotton Theory quilting projects. Cotton Theory quilts are reversible, so it’s important to have a good quality thread in my sewing machine’s bobbin as well as on top. King Tut thread is the perfect choice.
Strength, smoothness, subtle one-inch color changes, and lack of lint are the four main reasons I love to use King Tut thread.
