I'm in the process of making a 2.5 apex quilt with nobul2 fabric for the inner and shell.
Just wondering what people who have sewed this fabric before have used for thread and needle size

-Thank you

The two common answers I found when researching a MYOG quilt were:

1) Use the smallest needle you can, such as microtex sharp 60/8
2) Gutterman's poly thread

I followed the advise and they worked great.

The last 2 quilts I made with Nobul 1 on the inside, the Nobul 2 may not feel as soft next to the skin, just my prefrence.

The needle was a Microtex sharp #12 with Guterman all purpose poly thread.
