Here on the blog, we seem to talk about the Cotton Mako’ & Lana threads all the time, but we have tended to overlook the Aurilux  threads .

It is a very sad comment on my passion for traditional patchwork which means that I  spend very little time doing machine embroidery, either digitized or free motion.

All my beautiful examples of Aurilux machine embroidery have been stitched by other people.

However, my preference for patchwork does mean that I can happily confirm that the Aurilux (polyester) is great for machine quilting when you want to add a touch of glitz to the project.

It is a machine embroidery thread, and therefore has a similar breaking strength to a cotton thread that you would usually choose for machine quilting, making it “safe” to use single lines of stitching.

Unlike Rayon, which can break when it is wet, polyester threads are colourfast and have a good wet strength so they will stand up well to any laundering that a quilt may need, making Aurilux polyester thread a good choice to add a highlight to your quilting.

Free motion quilting with variegated threads on black fabrics can be very effective.

Aurilux also creates a neat machine stitched edge for applique. try it for both blanket stitch and satin stitch and you will be very happy with the results.

Just a tempting taste of all the beautiful colours in the Aurilux range
