What are some of my fave Superior Threads products?  I could not live without my..........

Magnifico, Fantastico and the Titanium-Coated Topstitch Needles

 Because these titanium-coated needles have an ultra thin coat of titanium nitride, they will stay sharper longer and outlast any current Topstitch needle on the market.

Fantastico is the name of Superior Threads variegated polyester threads.  I used them to straight line quilt my quilted jacket and the also the one I made for my mom.


Fantastico is a pleasure to free motion quilt with.  This is a close up of my Fox Kits quilt.  The tree was quilted in a wood grain pattern.  And Fantastico helped to bring the leaves to life!


Magnifico is another favourite of mine.  I used these to quilt my Modern Charm quilt.


This spiraled and echoed quilting was performed using the walking foot.

My favorite thread really depends on what I am doing. I do like Aurifil, but it isn't readily available for color matching to my quilts locally, so I tend to prefer Mettler at the moment. Again, mostly due to local availability more than anything else! :)

A Quilter's Mission said...

Thank you so much for the info on Superior Threads. I will definitely order this thread the next go-around.

BillieBee (billiemick) said...

Shauna said...

I like king tut thread

PK Sews said...

Magnifico is definitely my favorite thread. But that's because it's the only Superior thread I've tried. So thanks for the recommendation on Fantastico! And thanks, as always, for your inspiring blog!

Sweet Dreams Quilting said...

I love king tut.

GranChris said...

For piecing it's Masterpiece 50 wt. Great price and works beautifully.

My local quilt shop has closed and Gutermann is what is available to me.

Ruth Pratt said...

Love these threads! And the needles are great! Thank you for the opportunity to try more of your products.

Digiscrapations said...

I like Fantastico thread. I've tried others. Thanks for the chance to win.

Kathy H said...

My favorite is the omni thread for quilting.

wipgirl said...

Honestly, I mostly use Guttermann thread, because it's the most available thread to me and I've never had issues with it. I like Aurifil when I use it, but I can't colour match it because no one nearby sells it and I do hate buying based on a guess. I'm interested to try Superior Threads some day because I know a lot of quilters who really love it. And their needles... my sewing machine says I need specialty needles of a type that Superior doesn't make, but then I've heard a lot of bloggers with the same machine who say they swear by their needles and that they function in a similar way to the specialty ones, so I dunno.

Julie said...

I have one spool of Superior thread and could use more. I need to try the needles too! Everyone's talking about them!

Julie said...

Would love to know what needles quilters like to use for hand stitching.

Julie said...

I follow you on bloglovin.

Betsy said...

Masterpiece.

SuzyMcQ said...

Love, love, love the Fantastico used on your wood grain quilting. It's incredible looking!

scottylover said...

I don't really have a favorite thread. I have been trying to find something that works well with my machine for piecing and is available locally. Nothing has seemed to fit the bill yet. Would love to try this out!

Lesley Gilbert said...

I use all sorts of threads, depending on what I am sewing. I have some pink variegated thread and it would be nice to have some more in a different colour :)

Ladyquiltsalot said...

Just started working with Signature and Superior, but my fav at the moment is Sulky Blendables, both my machines work well with it.

Regina said...

I use Aurifil and Superior Threads exclusively for quilting. Both are wonderful and give a lint-free result. I love a nice even stitch with a flat thin line for piecing. Aurifil 50 and Masterpiece are the best.

CapitolaQuilter said...

I'm using Aurifil so far and would love to give Superior Threads a try. The options kind of boggle the mind.

Lynne Tilley said...

I use Coats & Clark because it's all I have access to where I live. I won some Aurifil which I have not tried yet, 2 small spools. I know thread is so important in quilt making and I'm ready to branch out to the "good stuff"....

suemac said...

I love their metallic thread and the King Tut variegated. So nice to work with.

KatieQ said...

My favorite thread for quilting is King Tut. I love the colors and it produces less lint to clog up my machine.

Ruth Griffeth said...

It really does depend on the application Right now I am using Polyarn because I am making apparel.

Crickets Corner said...

To be honest I use Aurifil, Gutterman and some Coats and Clarks. It really depends on what I'm sewing. Pj's, animal rescue bedding and such is where I'm using up my Coats and Clarks. I would love to try Superior.

eleanor said...

I've been loving variegated thread. Theirs looks great.

Cheryl said...

I really don't have a favorite thread, but I have some I don't like.

Gayle Fahrion said...

I do not have a favorite yet. My old machine was so particular that once I found that it behaved best with my locally sourced Gutterman I stuck with it. Now that I have a new machine I am counting down my current collection of spools before I splurge on some of the stuff others rage about. I'd love to test out some Superior. Your pieces look beautiful!

toniaconner said...

I don't have a favorite thread either. I haven't really sewn enough yet to tell much difference.

Susan L. said...

I love MasterPiece thread! I use different types of threads for quilting, but I only piece with MasterPiece.

PegP said...

I really liked the Highlights line, but it is gone now. I've just recently tried Fantastico and it is great to work with too.

✾Jamie Lee Cooley✾ said...

I use omni (made by Superior) for my long arm. It's great stuff!

Mr. Briggs said...

I don't have a thread preference... I have yet to really delve into the world of thread. This seems the a Superior option to get started.;-)

Lin's Quilts said...

I love Bottom Line.

I don't really have a favorite thread. We just have a Wal-Mart here so all I buy is Coats and Clark. Guess that would have to be my current favorite.

I not sure if I have a fav thread because I've only used a few so far, including Aurifil and Gutermann and Coats and Clark. Out of those I think I didn't really find one that stood out. I've never tried Superior Threads so it would be cool to win and try it. The Fantastico in the picture is so pretty!

Diann said...

I use a variety of threads, but my favorite is probably YLI.

Diana Hansen said...

Rainbows Embroidery Thread

Nancy said...

I don't know enough to have a favorite! LOL!

I'm new to quilting and I don't have a favorite yet.

kyramcquary at yahoo dot com

Candice Smith said...

My favorite thread is aurifil, however I have never tried using Superior Threads. Mostly I use the essential threads from connecting threads due to its cost.

Melanie said...

I use Gutterman thread as it's available locally

Jeneta said...

Wow - your quilting is beautiful! I tend to use Aurifil thread, as I can purchase it on a large cone.

Louise said...

My favorite thread is Aurifil, but I've only ever tried that brand and Coates & Clark. So I'm eager to try other brands and maybe find a new favorite!

Karen - Quilts...etc. said...

I normally use Gutermann, Essential, and King Tut - always willing to try more especially if I win!!

IHaveANotion ~ Kelly Jackson said...

Superior Machine Needles are amazing....a noticeable difference.

Smiles,
Kelly

lesleyana said...

i am new to sewing and still trying to teach myself with simple coats from joann.....hopefully i will understand the difference soon and will have a favorite!!!

Lisa in Port Hope said...

I don't have a specific favourite yet. I have been using Aurifil a lot for piecing; I like Sulky 30 wt cotton for quilting, it shows the stitches really well. And for garments and bags I always use Gutermann sew-all thread in polyester for strength.

Deb said...

I like Aurofil but not sure my fave color.

June D said...

I have been using some serger thread for my piecing, but Isacord Polyester Thread 40 wt for quilting. It really makes a difference! I haven't been matching my thread to fabric, in fact seem to like having the thread stand out! Thanks for the chance.

sherry said...

so fine...

Sarah@123quilt said...

I love Superior Threads. Thanks for the chance to win.
