This week I quilted this queen quilt for Joyce in an large allover meandering stitch in variegated Gutermann thread. I was not thrilled to be using cotton thread in Mrs.Singer again since the cotton Aurifil I have tried in the past was a disaster with constant lint build-up. I couldn't find a polyester thread that blended well, so cotton it was. The Gutermann cotton thread performed just fine, and Mrs.Singer had no hiccups!
It is a pleasure to quilt for Joyce since her quilt tops lie flat, are square, and she removes all threads and strings. She wanted the meander to be as big as possible, and this is it. Going any bigger becomes a real problem near the end of the quilt when the bulk of the completed quilt on the front rail takes up more throat space on Mrs.Singer. Now don't get your thread in a twist, Mrs.Singer, I love you dearly smaller throat and all!
