Does anyone do big stitch quilting, and do you have any recommendations or suggestions for what thread to use.  I'm thinking of using big stitch quilting on this quilt for my brother. I "think" it'll look good....hopefully  :D

I love big stitching and I will get the Pearly cotton #10 to do it with.
They have it at quilt stores and places like Hobby Lobby, Michael's...Do you have those over there?

Some people use embroider thread, two strands...
Pearle cotton you can use one.
Google and see what else pops up...
Have fun.

This is a good video and on the same page you can see the threads. You get them in a pack like embroider thread or as balls like these....

I love big stitch quilting. I've done two.  I almost feel like I'm cheating it is so fast and fun.

I like the looks of it on some quilts, mostly, I guess old fashioned type quilts. It says "hand-quilted" like none other.

I agree, but have seen it used very effectively on modern quilts too
