Handiquilter and frame to finish my quilts for a few years now and never taken the time to think much about thread. It doesn't seem to be picky and sews along without complaint most of the time. Never knowing what color of quilt will come together next, I like to be able to go out and pick up a spool when I am ready to finish up a top. I'm a big fan of Connecting Threads as a rule and have enjoyed using their Essential PRO cones. However, the only cones that they have at my local Joann's are serger thread, and I have been using those as well with no problems. I was happy to read Jo's post earlier this week about using Maxilock serger thread and was relieved to know I wasn't some oddball quilting rebel for using cheap thread. It doesn't list a size on the cone, but by comparison I'd have to say it is about 60 wt and 100% polyester. So what thread do you use for quilting? Is it worth the extra price for the name brands or is it all about getting it done?
