Superior Threads' Masterpiece in #152 Bisque. Masterpiece is a 50/3 weight thread retailing for $24.95 US for 2,500 yards. Superior Threads is a brand most associated with longarm quilters but Masterpiece isn't recommended for longarms and was designed specifically for piecing and quilting on domestic machines.
Masterpiece is billed as a long staple, low lint, strong thread. Because it is quite fine a lot can be wound on to one bobbin. But look at that lint! That's a lot of lint! There's no chance I'll be skipping a cleaning between bobbins.
Masterpiece. It might not seem that important, but especially when working with small pieces, seams that lie flat are just as important as getting an accurate quarter inch.
On a Whim blocks using one bobbin of Superior Threads' Masterpiece , equaling approximately 1575" of sewing.
So to summarize:
Price: $24.95 / 2500 yd spool or $0.01 per yard. Yowza! C+ on price
Lint: more than I expected. B on lint
The flat factor: Awesome. A+
Overall? B (mostly based on the really high price. If this were cheaper I'd definitely buy it again)
PS: If you're in Canada and are interested in trying Superior Threads, I really suggest buying from Cindy of Cindy's Threadworks. Sorry, no coupon codes or deals to offer you, she's just my neighbour and a ton of fun!
