Blog Quilt #3 - Size 50 Thread

The two rainbows below are both stitched in 50 weight thread.

The left picture is stitched in Aurifil 50 weight cotton thread.  The right is stitched in 50 weight Tire silk thread.  The Aurifil is cotton, so it has a flat appearance.  The Tire silk is very shiny because it's silk.  You can see from the pictures above they are both about the same thickness.

One thing I have definitely noticed is that when stitched in a high-contrast thread every little error shows.  Good to know!  Usually when I use contrasting thread it's only slightly different in color so any imperfections don't show much.
