Next up in our month of learning about quilting thread Heather Purcell shows Jodie a lovely red silk quilt that is quilted, naturally, with Superior’s silk thread. A wool batting by Hobbs makes everything puff up beautifully. Next up is Omni, a good-for-everything workhorse thread. Heather then shows us the latest from Superior, Magnifico, a 40 weight thread with lots of sheen that comes in 200 colors.
