Aurifil thread is by far the only quilting cotton thread to use on fine fabrics. The colour range is marvelous. Oh my gosh, the colour on this reel is amazing. It has an luster and a shine that highlights the quilting on my quilt. The thread runs through the needle very smoothly and I don't get chafing or split thread. Awesome. I love the colour of this thread - it looks like lemon sherbet.
