I bought two cones of this thread when it first came out about a year ago. Lilac and Sea Mist. At first I thought it didn't show up very well on the quilt top as the colors are matte, and subdued, but at times, depending on the quilting design, this can be a very good thing! The more I used it, the more I liked the look.
This came in the mailbox today! It's polyester, it's thin and it's strong!
I even had an empty cubbie to store it in. How unusual!
