Presencia’s Finca Perle Cotton is the ultimate for many, when it comes to hand quilting.
Big Stitch quilting
In recent times there has been a rise in popularity for Big-Stitch Quilting also known as Pick Stitching or Perle Quilting.
This technique results in relatively big, showy stitches that add a different texture and color to a quilt.
Most often perle cotton thread in size 8 is used.
These threads are thicker than standard quilting cotton and therefore require a needle with a bigger eye.
Embroidery or Crewel needles are best to use for these threads as they have large eyes and sharp points.
The size of the thread or floss you are using will determine will size needle is best.
The aim is to pick a needle in which the thread will fit comfortably through the eye of the needle and the point has a thickness that won’t bend in the layers of your quilt.
For Perle 8 cotton I recommend a size 8 or 9 Embroidery needle.
The colors are rich, the thread’s smooth texture glides like butter through the fabric, and it never tangles up on.
The colors have never bled after washing, and it’s really just an all around pleasure to work with.

Size 16 and Sz 12 are now requested for Big Stitch We will add sets in February 2016
