This is the silk thread i use for my hand applique. There are times when a silk thread sinks into a particular fabric better than the 60 wt cotton. I also like the fact that I can travel with my applique and only need to take 4 spools of thread with me. These colors will work for almost everything!
Try this silk for you machine quilting - it's wonderful!
