Why use Isacord thread for quilting? - This 40 wt. thread is very thin, making it an excellent choice for free motion quilting designs that require a lot of travel stitching. Isacord is also very strong and able to take the high speed and intensity of machine quilting and embroidery.
You also get a lot of bang for your buck with Isacord! Free motion quilting an entire quilt requires a lot more thread than piecing or applique because you're covering more surface area. $6 for 1000 meters of thread is an excellent deal and most openly quilted bed quilts can be completed with one spool.
Isacord thread is also virtually lint-free. Cheaper threads throw off balls of lint that can clog up both the bobbin and top area of a machine. This lint can easily destroy a good machine so make sure to brush out your machine top and bobbin area often.
For best results, always match the color and brand of thread in both the top and bobbin of your machine. Mismatching thread brands, or using cheaper thread in the bobbin, is the #1 reason why quilters struggle with tension issues and poor stitch quality when free motion quilting.
The thread you use DOES matter for the overall outcome of your quilt. For best results, also use Magic Bobbin Washers inside your bobbin case to reduce the number of thread nests and breaks while you quilt.
