I bought some new thread(not exactly thinking when I bought it). There are 15 spools of variegated threads. I wanted to try it and found out that it is quite small.
This is where I purchased it.
I tried tatting some size 100 and the same pattern in the quilting thread and I found out it is smaller than the size 100. Below is the picture of the quilting thread in variegated red, orange, yellow, on top of the Rainbow Bright size 100.
Of course, then I had to tat something real with it.
This is Mary Konior's Spinning Wheel Glass Mat from Tatting with Visual Patterns.
It's just under 3 inches across. It is ruffly and needs blocking(thankfully the scanner held it in place). The thread was a bit tough to work with since the stitches were so tiny and when picking out errors it weakened the thread lots and so it broke several times when closing rings that were re-tatted.
Other than that, I really love the color!!!!!!! Any thing I tat with this is going to be small, but I think it will make some pretty motifs(can't wait to see the other colors tatted up). :)
