In my original test I used a 90/14 top stitch needle and had some thread shred so for this decided to size up at least one size to a 100/16. From the previous stitch out I already knew the Lino tends to be slubby which can present a bit of a problem. The slub gets caught in the eye of the needle causing the thread shred and the popped stitches. For this test I’m stitching on decorator weight linen on top, Echino cotton on the back and silk batting.
I’d use Aurifil Lino again in a heart beat I’d use either Aurifil’s new Polyester Thread or their Invisible thread on the top (back of the quilt) and the Lino in the bobbin. I know, I know most of us do not have the BERNINA Red Bobbin or even the BERNINA Black Latch Bobbin (both of which have room to allow heavier weight threads to go through easily) I will be able to finish this project. Easily.
And no, I’m not going to tell you more about that project. Reasons dear friends Reasons. I’ll tell you all about it when I can.

I am left with more UNanswered questions than answered!!!! LOL! “Secret” projects have a way of coming across that way! The linen is truly beautiful and I really like that last “Aztec” stitching!!!!! Waiting…………………………………hugs….
If the unanswered questions have to do with the secret project all will be revealed. It won’t take too long.
If it has to do with the Lino – then go for it.
I love some of the Aurifils but in truth I am more excited about the red bobbin, It isn;t available here yet…
