Dreamers, we know that one of your favorite hobbies is patchwork and quilting; so today, we are going to recommend you 3 threads that are ideal for quilting and patchwork projects!

These threads have characteristics and properties that will make your work more accessible.

Remember always use good quality supplies!

In this post, we tell you how to recognize good-quality threads! Don’t lose this essential information!

Let's learn how to recognize good quality fabrics!

Knowing how to identify a good quality fabric can be challenging if you don’t know its composition characteristics.

Here are 4 tips to help you choose the best quality fabrics for your sewing projects.

Tip 1

You can check this by scratching the fabric.

If you notice that the threads move easily, this is a clear sign that the fabric will fray, or there will be very visible holes next to each stitch.


Tip 2

When looking at it against the light, observe if the threads are perfectly distributed.

If they have more closed or separated areas, holes, or other imperfections that make it difficult to do your projects.

Tip 3

It should be uniform and sharp look for a fold mark on the fabric and see if it has faded.


In prints check that there are no areas without color in the drawing, except for the parts that should be white.

Tip 4

The weft and selvedge threads should form a right angle (90°), and geometric or symmetrical prints should form a right angle with the selvedge.

if it’s crooked, you will not be able to correct it. And the presentation and finish of your projects will not be correct.
