Please share your experience on machine quilting with monopoly invisible thread. What size machine needle worked best for you? Did you need to adjust the upper thread tension, the bobbin tension or the foot pressure? How did you knot this slippery thread? Did you drop the feed dogs and use the free motion foot? Any recommendations are appreciated.
I used the same tension as always but I did lengthen my stitch up a few clicks. It worked really well and the seaming was smooth.
I use the same tension as regular thread as well. I put a mesh sleeve over the spool to help with tension. I use a universal needle.

I use the same needle that I use for everything else....90/14 universal. I do loosen my tension just a little on the top...from about 4 to 3. I leave my stitch length the same as general sewing. I usually use monofilament for FMQ and use my free motion foot.
The monofilament thread stretches easily so only use it on the top, use a cotton thread in the bobbin. I loosened the tension by 2 numbers and used a 4mm length stitch. Use a metafill needle. I reciently used the monofiliment thread on top and metalic thread on the bottom and had good results.
