Do You DecoBob?

There is an unsung hero in most of my quilts.  It is the strong and silent type of hero.  It provides a strong foundation, keeps to itself, and makes my day easier by saving me time.

It's DecoBob thread.  I use it nearly exclusively in the bobbin when I machine quilt, regardless of the thread I am running through the needle.

DecoBob is an 80wt 2-ply polyester thread.  It makes a beautiful stitch, keeps your machine quilting from getting thick when you over-stitch, and the bobbins last (nearly) forever!  I love not having to change my bobbin as often!

I just finished quilting this quilt with FabuLux Rocking Horse, a 40wt 3-ply thread in the needle and DecoBob in the bobbin:

The pastel FabuLux blends really well into this shabby-chic quilt!

The back:

Only the DecoBob shows on the back of the quilt. 

I am now carrying several colors of DecoBob in my online store in both 2000m spools and M-size pre-wound bobbins (boxes of 24).  Try it on your next quilt!

Do you find that you need to wind your bobbins slower? I tried using Invisifil in the bobbin and it blew out my bobbin.

I've been using DecoBob exclusively since doing the workshop with you in Melbourne. I'm very happy with it. I initially bought pre-wounds, but as I used them up I bought cones and am now winding my own.

I absolutely love how the Fabulux Rocking Horse looks with that color of DecoBob....what exactly is that color of DecoBob you used? Will you be adding it to your online shop?
