NEW! NOW 3-PLY. #50 extra-long staple Egyptian-grown cotton for piecing, applique, and detail quilting. 600 yds.
MasterPiece is a #50 Egyptian-grown extra-long staple cotton designed specifically for piecing . Piecing is the sewing together of 'pieces' or portions of your quilt. It is sometimes called 'Patchwork'. There are several piecing methods such as paper piecing, chain piecing (most common method of piecing), and strip piecing.
We recommend piecing with a #50 cotton thread because cotton can be ironed on high heat. A quality #50 thread is also fine enough to lie flat in the seams and not add bulk.
