Six tiny crosses that will go into Xmas cards--fsl with varigated metallic thread--except the one at the top is flipped. Question: when using metallicc for fsl, what is usually put on the bobbin for the back of the work? I used a varigated yellow rayon, it doesn't look too bad, but was wondering as I have many metallic colors. These crosses are a segment of the free rosary offered by that someone mentioned here the other day.

Whatever works for the bobbin thread. That is my motto! Love these pieces.

Thank you. It doesn't appear so in the photo, but it really sparkles--my fave metallic.

These are pretty, I made some verigated ones from yoriko's site but haven't tried metallic thread yet.

I think I will ''chop'' down to just the cross and do a few of those.

I think it worked best for my Babylock. I tried the metallic in the bobbin yesterday p.m. and tangled, cut, removed the needle plate 4 times! Will just try to match this thread with the vari rayon from now on. Maybe give a go in my will drive thru mud!

Thx--I often use only parts of a design, but it is only for me so I hope designers don't mind.

When doing FSL, I use the same thread in the bobbin as is used for the top thread. Doesn't matter what type, be it rayon, polyester, or metallic - always use the same.

thank you--I have never put metalliic on bobbins, so I didn't know how it would stitch. Good to know before experimenting and perhaps damaging machine?!
