I would use embroidery floss maybe 2 or 3 strands.

Thank you ... I had kinda thought that too but I wasn't sure since I most always hand tie the quilts I have made. .Thanks so much. ....

I have used felt for noses and embroidery floss for the mouth and whiskers.

I'd use buttons for either the nose or eyes (or both if you can get cool buttons) and either embroidery thread or 12wt thread for the whiskers and mouth. I like buttons. Maybe too much.
