I quilted the quilt top with a King Tut quality thread, with a fine Mettler Silk Finish on the back - this usually works together for me, but in the borders, the same King Tut was not the best and I finally took out several first tries, then changed to Essential Pro which sews like butta! This combo works very well together for me, and the Essential Pro is fine and blends in so well. One sees the texture not the thread. I need to remember this!
I am nearly finished - wanted to show it.
