Stitch In The Ditch With Wonderfil DecoBob

As we all know, I just love Wonderfil’s lines of thread, and DecoBob is one of my favorites. I use it traditionally for my bobbins when I do embroidery, and it works wonders for that! It’s a nice 80wt thread, so a lot of it fits on a bobbin, and it even works great as needle thread for fine, delicate embroideries. Today, however, I am using it for stitch in the ditch quilting! It just disappears into the quilt! The thread is so fine, it goes almost unnoticed on the quilted pillow shams I made. I used quite a bit of this thread for quilting. I’ve actually been using it on table runners I’ve made, and it just looks delightful! I’ll post pictures of those tomorrow!
