I have Vogue 7975 cut out and ready to make up. I have been havering/wibbling/dithering about quilting the lining for ages. I've just decided I don't like the very ordinary lining I've bought and am going to find a nicer one.
I bought a walking foot and tried it out on scraps, and to my surprise found it easy. However, I could see the lines on the right side even though its a boucle. It doesn't have a check pattern though. I used gutermann sewall polyester thread as that's what I always use. Is there a better type of thread for this purpose or should I experiment with different colours ?

I want to quilt if at all possible as I want the cardigan feel.

Experiment with different coloured threads e.g. I have played with pale pink to match the boule that looks more like mauve and then used a burgundy/wine colour in the bobbin that matched the lining. So far the samples look vey good.

Also play with your tension. this can make a difference on the front side.

You might want to try an all cotton thread. It would have a duller finish and be less noticeable. Another option is to use a fine embroidery thread, like a size 60. It is thinner and that may help as well. You can find 100% cotton fine sixty weight thread. Its often carried at the sewing machine dealers.
