Thank you for a great threaducation. I've often wondered what they would look like and how best to use the different weights. This will help enormously.

I'm really happy that you decided to do a post over Aurifil thread because recently I have a issues with it shreading while hand quilting. I was really surprised that this happened. I used a 50wt. Now I know I have more chooses of weight to quilt with.

I'm surprised not to see 28-wt thread in your article about Aurifil. It's the weight I prefer to use for hand piecing.
