Superior Threads Giveaway!


I've been a fan of Superior Thread's King Tut thread for quilting for a while now.  It's my favorite.  It's high time to try some of their other wonderful threads.  I browsed their website, Superior Threads, and was just bowled over by how many different threads they have.  Virtually a thread for any application you can imagine!


I've started out with their Bob's - The Bottom Line thread.  You can get them in these neat little color coordinated packs of 12 pre-wound bobbins.  Perfect to keep in your sewing box for hand applique or hexies!  No more searching through my vast thread collection to find that perfect shade.  It's all here, including black and white.


I first tried these out on my hexie quilt, Aura.  I whip stitched these five yellow hexies with the yellow Bob's thread.  Very nice!  The thread is super thin.  I can't see the stitches at all.


Here's a great example of how the thread just melts into the fabric.  On the brown & tan sides of this hexie you can see my stitches using a previous thread brand.  On the yellow side....you can't.  They're nearly invisible.  Excellent!


Here is where I do most of my hand stitching, weather permitting.  After the hexie success, I went on to stitch the hanging sleeve onto the back of this quilt, also using the Bob's - so handy! - right in my sewing box.


Success again!  The thread is nearly invisible.  I'm sure it would be if my hand tension had been better.  I did get a little puckering from pulling too tightly.


My Mountain Pass quilt was quilted with Superior's King Tut thread.  All swirly and gorgeous!  Obsidian color thread used here.


Look at the sunset colors in this Fantastico thread (made for quilting and embroidery).
Love it!  I can't wait to sew something with this.


I had to try some of this Pink Nite Lite glow in the dark thread, too.  How cool is that?  I asked my husband what I should make with it and he said some lingerie!  Ha!  Typical answer, eh?

Other threads I am going to be trying include Omni, Twist, Masterpiece, Poly Quilter, So Fine, and Treasure Hand Quilting.  I'll be writing future posts about my experiences with each thread.


And now for the giveaway!  Superior Threads is partnering with me to give away two $25.00 gift certificates for their thread, so you can try the "best thread on Earth"!  You have two chances to win.  Leave a comment on my blog and I'll choose a winner here, and  visit their Facebook page at this link:  Superior Threads, and enter to win a second time.  Good luck!

Until next time...please visit the Curlicue Creations Shop...and have a super day!

Get Creative!

  20. Google....grrrr second try

    I love Bottom line as it always comes through for me no matter how big or small the blocks are on my projects and how many zillions of seams meet. My next buy is destined to be the prewoind bobbins in all the great colors.

    Thanks for teaming with Superior for the gift certificate give-a-way
